Selecting hosts for licenses

The Host Licensing Information page appears. It displays total licensed sockets, used sockets, and the remaining days left in a trial period.

NOTE: VM licenses include all VMs. Licenses for both VMware® and Hyper-V® VMs are drawn from the same socket count.
View the CPUs Allowed value to confirm the number of sockets that are licensed for protection.
The Licensed Hosts section lists the managed hosts, the number of sockets for each host, and the licensed features for that host.
The CPUs column indicates the license “cost” of each host.
In the Backup or Replication column, select or clear hosts until you have used all the available licenses, or until all your hosts are protected.
Click Save.
Click Next.

Adding a physical machine

The Physical Machine Information page appears. Before vRanger can add physical source objects to the My Inventory pane, you must configure a connection to a physical server.

In the Physical Machines section, click Add.
In the DNS Name or IP field, enter the FQDN or IP address of the server.
In the User Name field, enter an account for the server.
In the User Password field, enter the password for the preceding account.
In the Agent Location field, enter the preferred directory — on the physical machine — to which the physical client should be installed. The default is C:\Program Files\Dell\vRangerPhysicalClient.
In the Port Number field, enter the preferred port for vRanger to use to communicate with the physical client on the source server.
Click Connect.

The server appears in the My Inventory pane. You may also create a backup group to combine multiple physical servers into one backup job. For more information, see Adding a custom backup group.

Selecting physical machines for licenses

Before you start this process, make sure that you have imported the license file and confirmed that it is adequate for managing the number of physical machines you want to protect. The Currently Installed Licenses section includes the total number of physical machine licenses available, and the number being used currently. These numbers increment and decrement based on the selections you make on this page.

In the Currently Installed Licenses section, view the Machines Allowed value to confirm the total number of physical machines licenses available.
The number of licenses currently allocated is shown in the Machines Used column. The Licensed Physical Machine section lists the physical machines in the vRanger inventory, and indicates whether each machine is licensed for backup.
In the Physical Backup column, select or clear machines until you have used all the available licenses, or until all your machines are protected.

Deploying and configuring the VA from the Startup Wizard

vRanger uses a virtual appliance (VA) for Linux® file-level restore (FLR), standard backup and restore, and for replication to and from VMware® ESXi™ servers.

There are two ways to deploy and configure a VA: the Startup Wizard and the Tools menu.

If you do not want to complete the Virtual Appliance Information page of the Startup Wizard now, you may skip this step and continue with the Startup Wizard. You can access the Virtual Appliance Configuration dialog box at any time by way of the Options available from the Tools drop-down menu.

To complete the Virtual Appliance Information page of the Startup Wizard and deploy and configure a VA now, complete the following procedure.

On the Virtual Appliance Information page of the Startup Wizard, start the Virtual Appliance Deployment Wizard from the Startup Wizard by clicking Deploy Virtual Appliance.
To add a VA configuration, click Add, and then complete the following steps:
In the Add Virtual Appliance Configuration dialog box, select a VA from the inventory tree.
Under Virtual Appliance Properties, do any of the following:
Select Override IP Address, and then enter a new IP address in the IP Address field.
Select Use as default virtual appliance for cluster, to use this VA for all machines that are a part of the associated cluster.
In the Modify Virtual Appliance Configuration dialog box, edit any of the following settings:
Click Remove.
In the Confirm Delete dialog box, click OK.
If you want to remove the entire VA rather than a single job, first select Delete the virtual appliance from the host, and then click OK.
Click Next.
