Modifying custom group names

When you modify the name of a custom group, only the label changes. The machine names remain the same.

Use the procedure below to modify a custom group name.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. In the Protected Machines menu, scroll your cursor over the custom group you want to modify.
  3. Click on the drop-down menu for that group, and then click Edit.
    The Edit Label dialog box appears, within which the name of the custom group becomes editable.
  4. In the Name field, update the text, or delete the existing label text and type a new label or your custom group.
    Use a descriptive name that communicates the purpose of the group. For example, to group protected machines, replicated machines, and recovery point-only machines by geographic region, type Tokyo. You can rename a group later.
    Note: Labels must be 50 or fewer characters. You can include a single space between words. You must provide a label for your custom group.
  5. When you are satisfied with the label name, click OK.
    The dialog box closes, and the modified custom group appears as the last element in the left navigation area.
  6. Optionally, you can add other protected machines, replicated machines, or recovery point-only machines to this group. Navigate to the machine name in the appropriate menu, click its drop-down menu, scroll down and select Label as, and then click the name of the custom group.

You can perform group actions on any group appearing in the left navigation area of the Rapid Recovery Core Console. If the group contains dissimilar members (for example, replicated machines and recovery points-only machines), then the actions you request will only be performed on the relevant group members.

Use the procedure below to perform group actions on a custom group.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. In the Protected Machines menu, scroll your cursor over the custom group for which you want to perform a group action.
  3. Click on the drop-down menu for that group, and then select an action as follows:
    • To force an incremental snapshot or base image for all of the protected machines in the group, click Force Snapshot or Force Base Image, as appropriate. For more information, see Forcing a snapshot.
    • To pause protection for all of the protected machines in the group,, click Pause Protection and then specify resumption parameters. For more information, see Pausing and resuming replication.
    • To resume protection for all of the protected machines in the group for which protection has been paused, click Resume Protection and then confirm that you want to resume. For more information, see Pausing and resuming replication.
    • To refresh the information for all of the objects in the group, click Refresh Metadata.
    • To pause replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Pause. For more information, see Pausing and resuming replication.
    • To resume replication for all replicated machines in this group for which replication has been paused, under Replication, click Resume. For more information, see Pausing and resuming replication
    • To force replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Force. For more information, see Forcing replication.
    • To remove replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Remove. For more information, see Removing incoming replication from the target Core.

Viewing all machines in a custom group on one page

Clicking the name of a custom group takes you to a Machines tab that lists all the machines in that custom group. You can then perform some functions on all machines from the Actions menu, or you can perform functions individually by selecting commands from each individual machine.
