Properties for an existing Computer Collection

The Computer Collection properties are used to specify what data to back up, where to store backups, and how many backups to keep for each computer that belongs to the Computer Collection.

The Computer Collection properties include options used for performance tuning, such as bandwidth throttling, CPU usage throttling, parallel backup tuning, and data compression.

The Computer Collection properties also include advanced backup options, such as accessing target computers with a special account and storing additional backup copies in an alternate location.

To view and modify properties for an existing Computer Collection
  • In the Recovery Manager Console tree, under Computer Collections, select the Computer Collection, and then click Properties on the Action menu.

The properties of a newly created Computer Collection are the same as the current default properties. After a Computer Collection is created, its properties can be modified using the Properties dialog box. All settings in the Properties dialog box are related to the given Computer Collection. Different Computer Collections may have differing settings.

The Properties dialog box for a Computer Collection includes the following tabs:


Backup tab

On this tab, you can use the following elements:

  • Backup type. There are two backup types available:
  1. Standard (Active Directory). Select this option to create a standard Active Directory backup.
  2. Full (Bare Metal Recovery). Select this option to create Bare Metal Recovery Backup. The storage for BMR backups is specified on the DC Storage tab. Bare Metal backups require Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition license.
  • Encrypt and protect backups with password. Select this option to encrypt backups and protect them with a password. You will be prompted to specify a password for backup protection immediately after you select this check box.

    When restoring data from a password-protected backup, Recovery Manager for Active Directory prompts you to type the corresponding password. The password you specify using this option is case-sensitive and can contain any combination of letters, numerals, spaces, and symbols. If you forget or lose the password, you cannot use the corresponding password-protected backup.

  • Set Password. Click this button to modify the password for backup protection.

  • Backup description. Provides a space for you to enter an optional description of the backup. The description may include expressions such as %COMPUTERNAME% or %DATETIME%.


Schedule tab

The Schedule tab is used to specify the backup creation scheduling.

On this tab, you can use the following elements:

  • Backup creation schedule. Displays a list of backup creation schedules for the currently selected Computer Collection.

  • Schedule enabled. Enables the backup creation schedules listed in the Backup creation schedule box. To disable the schedules, clear this check box. All the task schedules are retained, and you can enable them when needed by selecting this check box.

  • Modify. Modifies the Backup creation schedule list. In the dialog box that appears on the screen, specify new triggers or delete existing triggers.

  • User account the product will run under when creating backups. Identifies the user account under which Task Scheduler performs the backup creation task for the currently selected Computer Collection. To change the user account, click Select Account.

  • Select Account. Click this button to change the user account under which Task Scheduler performs the backup creation task for the currently selected Computer Collection.


Alerts tab

The Alerts tab is used to specify the logging settings to be applied when creating backups for the given Computer Collection.


SSL data encryption is not supported for email notifications.

On this tab, you can use the following elements:

  • E-mail notification. Specifies whether to send information about backup creation sessions by e-mail.

  • To. Provides a space for you to type a recipient's e-mail address

  • Send notification upon errors or warnings only. Select this check box to not receive notification unless an error and/or warning is written to the log.

  • Text file. Specifies whether to log information about backup creation sessions to an additional text file.

  • File name. Provides a space for you to enter the path and name of a text file to be used as an additional log file.

  • View. Click this button to view the additional log (text file) using Notepad.

  • Browse. Click this button to locate a text file to be used as the additional log file.

  • Append to file if it already exists. Select this check box if you never want to overwrite the log records, and always want to append entries.

  • Write to file upon errors or warnings only. Select this check box if you want a record to be added to the text file upon errors and/or warnings only.

  • What to record. Use this list to select what sort of information you want to be included in the notification e-mail message or written to the text file.
