justpaul: ## Too many times I have arrived onsite to find that the critical lost data was outside of the backup selection. Ho can BEMCLI be used for auditing your data protection?

zouleous: ## can we expect an update that covers the missed functionality or will we have to wait for the next major version of BE?

MikeFRobbins: ## Why isn't the BEMCLI module installed when you install the management portion on a workstation? It only installs the GUI.

RichPrescott: ## My home lab with Server 2012 DataCenter is bluescreening and stuck in a boot loop.  Can Symantec BE fix that?
