Adding Core jobs to settings

Core job settings let you define, for each job type, the maximum number of jobs for the Core to attempt at one time, and how many times that job should be retried if the first attempt failed.

Each Core job type has default values for these two parameters, as described in the topic Core job settings. This list also indicates which of the job types are included in the Core settings by default.

Adding a Core job to settings lets you change these parameters for the job type you added.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to add a job to Core settings.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. On the icon bar, click [Settings]
    (Settings), and then do one of the following:
    • From the list of Core settings on the left side of the Settings page, click Jobs.
    • Scroll down on the right side of the Settings page until you can see the Jobs heading.

      The Jobs settings for the Core appear.

  3. On the Core Settings page, under Jobs, click [Add]
    Add.

    The Job Settings dialog box appears.

  4. In the Job Settings dialog box, from the Jobs field, select the name of a job you want to add to the Core settings.

    These jobs are described in the topic Core job settings.

  5. To set the maximum number of jobs for the Core to attempt at one time, in the Maximum concurrent jobs text box, enter a new value between 1 to 50.
  6. To set the number of attempts the Core should make before abandoning the job, in the Try count text box, enter a new value between 0 and 10.
  7. Click Save.

    The Job Settings dialog box closes, and your new job settings are applied.

Editing Core job settings

Core job settings let you define, for each job type, the maximum number of jobs for the Core to attempt at one time, and how many times that job should be retried if the first attempt failed.

Each Core job type has default values for these two parameters, as described in the topic Understanding Core jobs. This list also indicates which of the job types are included in the Core settings by default. When you edit Core job settings, you can accomplish the following:

  • You can customize the settings for each Core job type.
  • You can delete a job type from the list of Core settings. This feature is not available if the job type is included in settings by default.

    NOTE: Deleting a job from Core settings simply removes the job type from this list. To edit Core settings for that job type again in the future, you can add it to the list as described in the topic Adding Core jobs to settings.

  • You can restore the settings for any job type to the default settings.

    NOTE: Although you can only use this feature for the job types included in Core settings by default, you can set other job types to defaults by removing them from the list and adding them again.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to edit the settings of a job.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. On the icon bar, click [Settings]
    (Settings), and then do one of the following:
    • From the list of Core settings on the left side of the Settings page, click Jobs.
    • Scroll down on the right side of the Settings page until you can see the Jobs heading.

    The Jobs settings for the Core appear.

  3. From the Job grid, select a job you want to remove from the list. From the drop-down [Settings]
    menu for that job, select Delete.
    The job is removed from the list.
  4. From the Job grid, select a job from the list for which you want to reset settings. From the drop-down [Settings] menu for that job, select Reset to defaults.
    The job settings for this job are reset to default settings.
  5. From the Job grid, select a job you want to change. From the drop-down [Settings] menu for that job, select Edit.
    The Job Settings: [JobName] dialog box opens.
  6. To change the maximum number of jobs for the Core to attempt at one time, in the Maximum concurrent jobs text box, enter a new value between 1 to 50.
  7. To change the setting for the number of additional attempts the Core should make before abandoning the job, in the Try count text box, enter a new value between 0 and 10.
  8. Click Save.

    The Job Settings dialog box closes, and your new job settings are applied.

Understanding SNMP settings

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol for managing devices on an IP network. SNMP is used primarily to monitor devices on a network for conditions that require attention. This protocol uses software components (agents) to report information to administrative computers (managers). An SNMP agent handles the manager's requests to get or set certain parameters. The SNMP agent can send traps (notifications about specific events) to the manager.

Data objects that the SNMP agents manage are organized into a Management Information Base (MIB) file that contains Object Identifiers (OIDs). Each OID identifies a variable that can be read or set using SNMP.

Rapid Recovery includes support for SNMP version 1.0.

You can configure the Rapid Recovery Core as an SNMP agent. The Core then can report information such as alerts, repository status, and protected machines. An SNMP host can read this information using a standalone application called an SNMP browser. You can install the SNMP browser on any machine accessible over the network to the Rapid Recovery Core.

To ensure the Core SNMP event notifications can be received by the SNMP browser, verify that the notification options for a notification group are properly configured to notify by SNMP trap.

NOTE: You can use the default group, or create a custom notification group. The process is identical.

Open the notification group, select the Notification Options tab, and ensure the Notify by SNMP trap option is enabled. The notification group specifies trap number 1 by default. If necessary, you can change the trap number to ensure that it matches the setting that the SNMP browser expects.

For more information and specific details about configuring notification options, see Configuring notification groups.

Alternatively, you can download a MIB file from the Rapid Recovery Core. This file is readable using an SNMP browser in a more user-friendly fashion than data it receives directly from the Core.

This section includes the following topics:

Configuring SNMP settings

Use the SNMP settings to control communication, such as alerts, between the Rapid Recovery Core and an SNMP browser. Available settings include the SNMP port, trap receiver port, and the host name for the trap receiver.

NOTE: Rapid Recovery builds prior to release 6.1 do not include the ability to change the Community string setting.

Use this procedure to configure SNMP settings for the Core.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. On the icon bar, click [Settings]
    (Settings), and then do one of the following:
    • From the list of Core settings on the left side of the Settings page, click SNMP Configuration.
    • Scroll down on the right side of the Settings page until you can see the SNMP Configuration heading.

    The SNMP Configuration settings are displayed.

  3. Modify the SNMP settings as described in the following table.
    Table 31: SNMP connection settings information
    Text Box Description

    Handle incoming request

    To let the Core recognize incoming SNMP protocols, select this option. To block incoming SNMP protocols, clear the option.

    NOTE: Selecting the option to handle incoming requests lets you edit the community string setting.

    Community string

    Enter a name for the community.

    NOTE: You can only change this setting if the Handle incoming request setting is set to Yes.

    Incoming port

    Enter a port number for the SNMP connection.

    NOTE: The default setting is 8161.

    Send traps

    To allow alerts (traps) to be sent using the SNMP protocol, select this option. To block alerts, clear the option.

    Trap receiver port

    Enter a port number for the incoming alert.

    The default setting is 162.

    Trap receiver host name

    Enter a host name for the SNMP connection.

    NOTE: The default host name is localhost.

  4. For each setting, when satisfied with your changes, click [Check mark]
    to save the change and exit edit mode, or click [Cancel]
    to exit edit mode without saving.
