Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Has anyone seen this problem?

From my domain controller logged in as a domain admin, create a MMC.

Add a snap-in for Windows Server Backup for a remote computer in the same domain. Add a snap-in for Windows Server Backup for another remote computer in the same domain.

Save the MMC on the desktop and then close the opened MMC.

Double-click on the saved MMC on the desktop.

It shows two snap-ins for Windows Server Backup - but for the local computer.

I'm logged in as a domain admin, I even tried right-clicking the MMC and chose Run-As-Administrator

Any ideas on why it's not saving the remote computers?

According to the thread here, this is by design.

I had better luck by just adding the Server Manager snap-in instead. This still forces a few more clicks out of you, but it's better than having to log into each server manually.

I like how that thread references this as a workaround. –  Jason Taylor Jun 10 '13 at 21:35
