Introducing the DR Series system documentation

The DR Series system documentation contains topics that describe how to perform data storage operations and to manage storage and replication containers.

Understanding the DR Series system documentation

The topics in this administrator’s guide introduce and describe how to use the DR Series web-based graphical user interface (GUI) to manage your system. It describes how to access the comprehensive system GUI and the associated DR Series system features and capabilities, how to perform a wide variety of data storage and replication operations, how to manage the system, as well as how to manage the related storage and replication containers.

In addition to the DR Series system GUI, you can manage the DR Series system by using a command-line interface (CLI). In some instances, the DR Series system GUI provides additional features and options that are not available in the DR Series system CLI and vice versa. For example, GlobalView is only available in the GUI, while the ability to add and remove clients is only available in the CLI. For more information about the DR Series system CLI commands, see the DR Series System Command Line Reference Guide.

This documentation is written for an administrator.

NOTE: For information about the supported web browsers you can use with the DR Series system, see the DR Series System Interoperability Guide.
