If you want to use the features of HBR, you must install an HBR client on the object that you want to back up. An HBR client is used to establish communication and transmit messages between HBR and the object that you want to back up. For more information about the regions and ports that are supported by backup clients, see What are the endpoints and ports that can be accessed by HBR clients?.
