Jumping ship.. to GFI?
10 Replies

Hey everyone.  Looking to get some thoughts for my scenario.  I'm a one man shop, and as such, I probably use only 20% of the features of Labtech and Connectwise.  I like both products, but are very…Continue

Anyone else trying this out?  I'm actually using LTbackup for the first time.   Have a few questions for those that are familiar: 1)  Is there a place to configure frequency, etc?  I only see the…Continue

"You are correct, patching works just the way WIndows does it so if it is approaved and not applicable it will be actualy ignored by the machines - only thing that apply and are approved will be installed.   Also like you said at the end, if you…"

"Wow.  Thanks for the response.  I think I got it.     So before I blow out everything that I've done and start over...   In the main windows.updates.approved group, I can set updates that apply to just…"

"Craig,   Let me see if I can answer your questions but I am sure others will also chime in. Patching in LT 2012 is pretty simple no matter if you do it via the Patch Manager or at the Patches Tab at the correct group level. The real key to…"

"I've upgraded and I'm giving it a shot.  There's a lot more monitors than before, which is nice, but trying to clean them up now.  I had Vernon's patching method in place before, so I have to re-learn the "patch…"

"Craig - as an MSP and VAR/Reseller/Network Integrator for the past 20+ years, I can tell you I have looked at or used just about all the tools on the market at some point in time.  As fas as RMM tools, LabTech has provided me the best out of…"

"Craig - we checked out GFI. It's an ok product, but their business model worried me. We've used a few different GFI products in the past (Email Archiver, MailEssentails, etc) and had very little if any success and happiness. My issue with…"

"Thanks.  I wasn't aware of the new out of the box features that were coming in 2012.  After doing some research, I'm going to wait and take a look.   It looks like there will be a few options during the upgrade, and one will…"

"It's hard to say as we are far from a one-person IT shop.  Though, I strongly feel that LabTech is the best choice and I wouldn't jump ship. Yes, 2012 is fantastic and most likely could resolve all or most of your issues.  Though…"

"Wait and give Labtech 2012 a try.  Things are a lot more logical from a layout perspective and most of the rest of your frustrations have been worked on quite a bit. LT 2012 will be out in just a little while as well.  "

Jumping ship.. to GFI

Hey everyone.  Looking to get some thoughts for my scenario.  I'm a one man shop, and as such, I probably use only 20% of the features of Labtech and Connectwise.  I like both products, but are very complex and unfortunately I just haven't taken the time to learn how to do everything.  I struggle with getting patch management working, (watched Vernon's vid and set it up, but not sure its working?), scripting, editing/creating montors..  I do like the out of band management such as event log…See More

"When we tried it (months ago), there was no clear way to tell the progress of your backup.   The agent that ran on your machine had no real interface either.   And it never would sync our entire server up.   Maybe things have changed…"

"Farzon, What did you find with Doyenz that made you decide it wasn't quite ready for prime time? I know those aren't your words (you just said it wasn't quite ready for you guys.) I'm looking at Doyenz, and comparing that to my…"

"I highly suggest contacting Doyenz.  They have documentation on how to get everything setup properly.  Their documentation pretty much leads you step-by-step.   We like the idea of Doyenz, but when we tested it a little over a month…"
