Automatic method

Before following the below instructions, make sure that Windows Firewall enabled on the target computer does not block any ports used by the Recovery Manager Console: these ports are required to deploy Backup Agent, Online Restore Agent, Offline Restore Agent, Management Agent and Forest Recovery Agent.

Use the following options to automatically configure Windows Firewall settings:

  • To automatically configure Windows Firewall for Backup Agent, Online Restore Agent, Offline Restore Agent and Management Agent, use the Recovery Manager Console settings. Fore more details, see the Ports tab section here.

  • To automatically configure Windows Firewall for Forest Recovery Agent and Management Agent, use the Agents tab in the Recovery Project Settings dialog in Forest Recovery Console. Fore more details, see the Specifying recovery project settings section.

  • You can automatically configure Windows Firewall settings for Backup Agent using the Computer Collection properties in Recovery Manager Console:

    a. Open the Recovery Manager Console, expand the Computer Collections node in the console tree, and select the Computer Collection that includes the target computers where you want to automatically configure Windows Firewall.

    b. From the main menu, select Action | Properties.

    c. In the dialog box that opens, go to the Agent Settings tab.

    d. Make sure the Use preinstalled Backup Agent check box is cleared. This is required to automatically deploy Backup Agent when the backup creation operation starts. You cannot configure Windows Firewall by using preinstalled Backup Agent.

    e. Select the Automatically configure Windows Firewall check box, and click OK

Recovery Manager for Active Directory automatically configures Windows Firewall on each Windows Server 2008-based or later computer in the Computer Collection after the backup creation operation starts on that Collection.

  • To automatically configure Windows Firewall settings for Online Restore Agent, you should select the Automatically configure Windows Firewall option on the Domain Access Options step of Online Restore Wizard.


Using Computer Collections

A Computer Collection is a group of shortcuts to the computers (domain controllers and/or AD LDS (ADAM) hosts) to be backed up with Recovery Manager for Active Directory. You can have multiple Computer Collections, each representing a group of computers you want to back up. You can populate a Computer Collection with shortcuts to specific computers available on your network and containers (for example, Active Directory domains, sites, and organizational units) that include the computers you want to back up.

Each Computer Collection has its individual properties you can use to configure such settings as backup location, backup creation schedule, performance, and backup operation logging. For more information about Computer Collection properties, see Properties for an existing Computer Collection.

Computer Collections help you organize any number of computers into groups with the appropriate settings for backup creation and scheduling. A well-organized set of Computer Collections ensures that up-to-date copy of the backup information is maintained for remote computers. Therefore, it is recommended to group managed computers into Computer Collections and set appropriate properties for every Computer Collection.

This section covers the following tasks:


Creating Computer Collections

To create a Computer Collection
  1. In the Recovery Manager Console tree, select the Computer Collections node.

  2. From the main menu, select Action | Create Collection.

The properties of a newly created Computer Collection are preset with default values. You can change the property values for a Computer Collection, as well as the default property values. For more information, see Modifying Computer Collection properties.

The Backup Wizard creates a new Computer Collection if you select the option Later (configure backup scheduling) on the When to Back Up page of the wizard. The new Computer Collection includes all objects you selected on the What to Back Up page.


Renaming Computer Collections

Recovery Manager for Active Directory assigns a default name to a newly created Computer Collection. You can rename a Computer Collection to assign it a more descriptive name.

To rename a Computer Collection
  1. Right-click the Computer Collection and then click Rename.

  2. Type a new name for the Computer Collection and then press ENTER.

When renaming a Computer Collection for which a backup creation task is scheduled, you may be prompted to supply the user name and password of the account under which you want to run the scheduled backup creation operation. This is because Task Scheduler may need to re-create the backup creation task when a Computer Collection is renamed. When creating a scheduled task, Task Scheduler requires that you supply the user name and password of the user account under which the task will run. For more information, see Setting user account for scheduled tasks.
