Installing vRanger > Configuring vRanger > Adding an EMC Data Domain Boost (DD Boost) repository

The following process describes how to add an EMC® Data Domain® Boost (DD Boost™) repository. The following procedure assumes that:
1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click anywhere, and click Add > EMC Data Domain Boost (DDB).
2
In the Add EMC Data Domain Boost Repository dialog box, complete the following fields:
Repository Name: Enter a descriptive name for the repository.
Description: [Optional] Enter a long-form description for the repository.
DNS Name or IP: Enter the IP or FQDN for the Data Domain device.
User name and Password: Enter the credentials for the account selected as the DD Boost User on the Data Domain device.
Storage Unit: This field specifies the Storage Unit configured on the Data Domain device. Select one from the drop-down menu, or enter the name for a new Storage Unit and vRanger creates one for you.
3
The connection to the repository is tested and the repository is added to the My Repositories pane and the Repository Information dialog box.
Import as Read-Only: To import all savepoint data into the vRanger database, but only for restores, click this button. You cannot back up data to this repository.
Import: To import all savepoint data into the vRanger database, click this button. vRanger is able to use the repository for backups and restores. vRanger requires read and write access to the directory.
Overwrite: To retain the savepoint data on the disk and not import it into vRanger, click this button. vRanger ignores the existence of the existing savepoint data and treats the repository as new.
1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click the Data Domain Boost repository, and select Configure Replication.
2
In the Configure Replication dialog box, complete the following fields:
Repository Name: Enter a descriptive name for the repository.
Description: [Optional] Enter a long-form description for the repository.
DNS Name or IP: Enter the IP or FQDN for the Data Domain device.
DD Boost User name and Password: Enter the credentials for the account selected as the DD Boost User on the Data Domain device.
Storage Unit: This field specifies the Storage Unit configured on the Data Domain device. Select one from the drop-down menu, or enter the name for a new Storage Unit and vRanger creates one for you.
3
After replication is configured for a repository, the Configure Replication option is disabled for that repository.
1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click the EMC Data Domain Boost repository, and select Edit Replication Configuration.
2
In the Edit EMC Data Domain Boost Repository dialog box, edit any of the following fields:
3
Alternatively, view the Free Space field for up-to-date information about this repository.
NOTE: For information on disabling repository replication, see Disabling repository replication.
The process for removing an EMC® Data Domain® Boost (DD Boost™) repository is the same as removing any other repository type, except that you also have the option of removing the storage unit used by the repository. There is a hard limit on the number storage units that can be configured on a Data Domain device, which makes removing unused storage units an important maintenance effort.
1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click the applicable EMC Data Domain Boost repository, and select Remove.
The Remove Repository dialog box appears, showing the savepoints in the selected repository.
2
Select Delete all savepoints in this repository.
3
To delete the savepoints in a replicated repository, select Delete all savepoints in replication repository.
4
5
When the Delete Savepoints dialog box appears, select Delete DD Boost storage unit, and click OK.
