Adding a repository

vRanger uses repositories to store backup archives. vRanger supports the following options for repository connections.

Windows Share (CIFS)

NFS (version 3)
NetVault SmartDisk (NVSD): The Quest disk-based data-deduplication option which reduces storage costs with byte-level, variable-block-based software deduplication. For more information on NetVault SmartDisk, see or the Quest vRanger Integration Guide for Quest NetVault SmartDisk.
EMC Data Domain Boost (DDB): Integrating EMC Data Domain Boost (DD Boost) with vRanger is achieved by adding a Data Domain appliance running DD Boost to vRanger as a repository. Backups written to that repository are deduplicated according to your configuration. For more information on DD Boost, see or the Quest vRanger Integration Guide for EMC Data Domain Boost (DD Boost).
Quest Rapid Data Access (RDA): Provided by the Quest DR Series appliances — purpose-built, disk backup appliances that use Quest deduplication technology to improve backup and recovery processes. For more information on Quest DR Series appliances, see or the Quest vRanger Integration Guide for Quest DR Series Disk Backup Appliance.

The following procedure shows mounting a CIFS share to the My Repositories pane. The procedures for the other repository types are described in Supplemental instructions: additional repository types

Under Repositories, select Windows Share (CIFS).
Populate the Repository Name field.
This value appears in the My Repositories pane.
Populate the Description field.
Enter a username and password in the appropriate fields.
Select a Security Protocol from the drop-down list: NTLM (Default), or NTLM v2
In the Server field, type the UNC path to the preferred repository directory.
Alternatively, enter a partial path, and click Browse to find the target directory.
CAUTION: If you use the Encrypt all backups to this repository feature, make certain to retain the password you enter. There is no back-door or administrator-level password. If the password is unknown, the backups are not usable.
If you want these backups password-protected, select Encrypt all backups to this repository, enter a Password for the encrypted repository, and then confirm the password by re-entering it.
NOTE: Encryption is not supported for NetVault SmartDisk and DD Boost repositories.
Click Save.
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.
Click Next.

Setting up the SMTP server

On the Mail Server Information page, you can configure an SMTP server, Select one that does not require authentication so that there are no obstacle to email notification transmission.

In the SMTP Server field, enter the DNS name or IP of an SMTP server.
In the Port field, enter the port to use for communication — the default is 25.
If your SMTP requires use of authentication or encryption, or both, click Advanced, and complete the following in the SMTP Server Advanced dialog box:
To use authentication, select the SMTP server requires authentication check box, and enter the applicable user name and password. If applicable, include the domain followed by a backward slash before the name.
To use SSL, select the Connect using SSL check box.
In the From Address field, enter the email address that vRanger should use.
Click Send Test Email.
If preferred, select Do not send email notifications for successful jobs.

Adding an email address

Complete the following steps on the Mail Server Information page of the wizard to add an email address to the vRanger address book.

Populate the Name and Email Address fields.
Click OK to add the information to the Email Addresses list.
Repeat Step 1 through Step 3 to include additional contacts.
Click Finish.
