On a very small Backup Domain, all three components (Domain Server, Media Server, and client) can be on
the same machine.
Since Yosemite Server Backup is scalable, you can easily upgrade your license whenever you need to expand the
Yosemite Server Backup Backup Domain.
To deﬁne the Backup Domain, identify:
Yosemite Server Backup Service
The Yosemite Server Backup service lets you run scheduled jobs automatically, whether or not an operator is
present. The Yosemite Server Backup service is called a service on Windows and a daemon on Linux systems.
When installed, the Yosemite Server Backup service automatically loads at system startup. It runs in the
backgroundwithoutauserinterface. At any time, you can start the Yosemite Server Backup user interface.
Later, when you close the Yosemite Server Backup user interface, the Yosemite Server Backup service continues
to run in the background.
If the system loses power, the Yosemite Server Backup service automatically restarts following system restart.
Therefore, your backup jobs still run as scheduled.
You must install Yosemite Server Backup on each computer that will be included in an automatic backup

Upgrading Yosemite Server Backup
There is a Backup Domain conﬁguration setting to disable automatic updates that is on by default. If you
turn this option off you will need to manually update each client. Clients running older versions of Yosemite
Server Backup will not operate with a Domain Server running a newer version.
