Configuring RAS device settings

This section includes the following topic:

Configuring connection settings for NetVault SmartDisk

The connection settings specify the period for which NetVault Backup makes retry attempts to establish a TCP connection to a NetVault SmartDisk and the time between retry attempts.

By default, the connection retry mechanism is disabled. Under most circumstances, you do not need to configure the connection settings for NetVault SmartDisk. If your backups report “failure to bind port” errors, then you can configure these settings to enable the connection retry mechanism.

On the Configuration page, click Server Settings.
Under Services, click RAS Devices. In the RAS Devices dialog box, configure the following settings:
Time limit for retrying a SmartDisk connection: This setting specifies how long the NetVault Backup Server tries to establish a connection to a NetVault SmartDisk device after the initial attempt fails.
Time (in seconds) between retries for a SmartDisk connection: This setting specifies the time between retry attempts. You can set the retry interval to any value between 0 and 60 seconds.
Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.

Configuring Schedule Manager settings

This section includes the following topics:

About Schedule Manager

The Schedule Manager (nvsched) runs on the NetVault Backup Server. This process manages the job schedules and queues. It also manages the Scheduler Database.

The Schedule Manager initiates the Job Manager to start a job instance, and schedules the next instance for recurring jobs; the Job Manager runs the job. This process also updates the Job Status page and provides job scheduling data to the Reporting utility.

You can modify the Schedule Manager settings from the Change Settings page.
