In the My Repositories pane, right-click anywhere, and click Add > NetVault SmartDisk (NVSD).
2
In the Add NVSD 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 NetVault SmartDisk server.
User name and Password: Enter the credentials for the account that vRanger should use to connect to the repository.
Target Directory: This value is a logical identifier for the repository on the NetVault SmartDisk Instance, rather than a specific directory on the NetVault SmartDisk server. If you have previously created one or more repositories on the target NetVault SmartDisk Instance, the existing target directories are available in a drop-down menu.
Port: Enter the port that vRanger should use to connect to the NetVault SmartDisk server — the default is 37453.
Timeout: Enter a value that determines how long to wait before terminating an idle connection.
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 NetVault SmartDisk repository, and select Remove.
The Remove Repository dialog box appears, showing the savepoints in the selected repository.
2
To remove the savepoints, select Delete all savepoints in this repository.
3
If you chose to delete the savepoints, click OK when the Delete Savepoints dialog box appears.

Configuring vRanger > Supplemental instructions: additional repository types > 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

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.

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.

Configuring vRanger > Supplemental instructions: additional repository types > Understanding the vRanger virtual appliance (VA)

The vRanger VA is a small, pre-packaged Linux® distribution that serves as a platform for vRanger operations away from the vRanger server. With VAs, the workload can be spread across the other CPUs available to a host. This feature provides increased reliability and scalability over operations.
