Performing vRanger sweep-to-tape using Quest NetVault Backup

Integrating and monitoring vRanger > Integrating vRanger: overview > Performing vRanger sweep-to-tape using Quest NetVault Backup

The vRanger backup administrator creates an on-demand (not scheduled), incremental job with a specific name, appending -Tape as a case-sensitive suffix — for example, any-jobname-Tape. The -Tape suffix can be changed by editing the Windows PowerShell® script if you prefer something else. There should be a dedicated repository for each on-demand job.
vRanger on Windows Server® 2008, 2008 R2, or 2012.
Scenario 1: vRanger and NetVault Backup are on the same server:
Windows PowerShell® — PowerShell and vRanger must always be installed on the same server.
NOTE: When installing vRanger and NetVault Backup on the same server, do not install the Quest NetVault Backup Plug-in for VMware®.
Scenario 2: vRanger and NetVault Backup are running on different servers:
Windows PowerShell® contains an execution policy that determines whether scripts are allowed to run, and whether they must be digitally signed before they can run. While the default policy is set to block the execution of such scripts, the following topic details the process for enabling this option.

Integrating and monitoring vRanger > Integrating vRanger: overview > Using Data Domain and vRanger repositories

vRanger and EMC® Data Domain® appliances provide a simple and efficient method for backing up and recovering VMware® environments. vRanger provides significant enhancements regarding architecture, performance, and communications over traditional backup solutions. Data Domain provides superior data de-duplication capabilities. The combination of vRanger and Data Domain Technology dramatically reduces your backup and recovery time for VMs on VMware® ESXi™ hosts.
For more information about integrating vRanger and Data Domain, see the Quest vRanger Integration Guide for EMC® Data Domain® Boost (DD Boost™).

Monitoring vRanger

Previous Next



vRanger can be configured to log events to the Windows® Event Viewer on the vRanger machine. These events can be filtered and monitored using the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager to monitor replication functions in line with other IT operations. When monitoring is enabled, vRanger creates a vRanger Service node on the local Event Viewer.
