Rapid Recovery 6.3 - Installation and Upgrade Guide

Overview and System Requirements Installing Rapid Recovery Upgrading Rapid Recovery Managing Rapid Recovery licenses

About the QorePortal

Rapid Recovery integrates with the QorePortal, accessible from the web location https://qoreportal.quest.com/. The QorePortal lets you manage multiple Cores; access the dashboard we can monitor tasks and events, view repository status, and check system health; generate reports; download software; and perform a growing list of other functions from a single web-based user interface.

Rapid Recovery users with a current maintenance agreement are entitled to use the QorePortal. No plugin or additional software is required to integrate Rapid Recovery 6.3 with the QorePortal. The connection between the Rapid Recovery Core Console and the QorePortal is enabled by default in the Core settings under the QorePortal category.

NOTE: While enabled by default, you can change the settings from the [Settings] Settings page on the Rapid Recovery Core Console. The single QorePortal setting lets you enable or disable the connection to the portal as appropriate.

This portal is backward compatible to Core release 5.4.3. If using a Core version older than release 6.2, you need a plugin to use the portal. From each Core server for releases earlier than 6.2, log in to the Rapid Recovery License Portal , and navigate to the Downloads page. The plugin installer is available under Windows-Based Applications. Download and run the installer on the Core server. It automatically installs the correct components for your Core server.

Rapid Recovery release 6.2 and later and the QorePortal comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which governs the handling of individuals' personally identifiable information (PII). If using a software license in standard phone-home mode, Rapid Recovery Core collects a small amount of PII. For information about compliance with GDPR, to understand the PII that Rapid Recovery can collect, how it is used, and how you can control it, see "Managing privacy" in the Rapid Recovery 6.3 User Guide. If you choose not to share PII with Quest, and register a non-phone home license on your Core, the connection between the Core and the QorePortal is disabled.

Uninstalling the Rapid Recovery Core

If you are uninstalling a Rapid Recovery Core release prior to 6.2, and the Core connects to the QorePortal, a portal plug-in is also present on the Core machine. Before you uninstall the Core, first remove the portal plug-in from the machine.

Complete the steps in this procedure to uninstall the Rapid Recovery Core. The same steps apply to uninstall an AppAssure Core. Only the version number will be different.

  1. On the Windows server from which you want to uninstall the Rapid Recovery Core, as a best practice, first stop the Core service gracefully as follows::
    1. Navigate to the [Settings] Settings page for the Core.
    2. At the top of the page, click [Shut Down]Shut Down Core Service.
  2. Open the Control Panel, and click Programs and Features.
  3. In the Programs and Features window, double-click the installed Rapid Recovery Core instance. Based on the version of Windows on your machine, you may need to select the executable file by name. For example:
    		Core-X64-6.0.x.xxxxx.exe

    If uninstalling AppAssure Core, the version number will be different, for example:

    		Core-X64-5.4.x.xxxxx.exe
  4. Do one of the following:
    • If the version of Rapid Recovery Core installed does not include support for localization, then the Rapid Recovery Core Installation Wizard appears, showing the Repair/Remove page. Skip to step 5.
    • If the version of Rapid Recovery Core installed includes support for localization, then the Setup dialog box appears.
      • In the Setup dialog box, from the Choose your language drop-down menu, select the appropriate display language, and then click OK.

        For example, select English.

      • Proceed to step 5.

        The Rapid Recovery Core Installation Wizard appears, showing the Repair/Remove page.

  5. On the Repair/Remove page of the Rapid Recovery Core Installation wizard, select Remove, and then click Next.

    The Remove Options page appears.

  6. Do one of the following:
    • To remove your repository, as well as all recovery points and change logs, select Uninstall the configuration settings and data including all backup images and change logs, and then click Uninstall.

    NOTE: If you select this option, you will delete all data in the repository, including the repository folder and all subfolders. This option is appropriate for typical installations where the repository is installed on an otherwise empty volume. If you have other data on the directory where your repository is located, do not select this option.

     
    • To leave your repository but remove the Rapid Recovery Core software, clear this option and then click Uninstall.

      The Progress page appears, on which you can view the progress of the uninstall action.

      When the uninstall is complete, the Completed page appears.

  7. Click Finish to close the wizard and exit.
