Once you have added a cluster, you can easily modify basic settings (for example, display name), protection settings (for example, protection schedules, adding or removing volumes, and pausing protection), and more.
The Settings page appears.
|Display name||Enter a display name for the cluster.
The name for this cluster displays in the Rapid Recovery Core Console. The display name does not need to be the same as the host name.
|Host name||Enter the name of the cluster host.|
|Port||Enter the port to use for communicating with the cluster.|
|Encryption Key||If you want to secure the data using Core-base encryption, select an encryption key from the drop-down list.
This specifies whether encryption should be applied to the data for every volume on this cluster to be stored in the repository.
|Repository||Enter the Core repository associated with the cluster.|
You can configure how system events are reported for your cluster by creating notification groups. These events could be system alerts or errors. Complete the steps in this procedure to configure notification groups for events.
The Add Notification Group dialog box opens.
|Name||Enter a name for the notification group.|
|Description||Enter a description for the notification group.|
|Enable Events||Select the events for notification, for example, Clusters.
You can also choose to select by type:
|Notification Options||Select the method to specify how to handle notifications.
You can choose from the following options:
The Edit Notification Group dialog box displays for you to edit the settings.
The retention policy for a cluster specifies how long the recovery points for the shared volumes in the cluster are stored in the repository. Retention policies are used to retain backup snapshots for longer periods of time and to help with management of these backup snapshots. The retention policy is enforced by a rollup process that helps in aging and deleting old backups.
|Use Core default retention policy||This adopts the settings used by the associated core.|
|Use Custom retention policy||This lets you configure custom settings.|
In Rapid Recovery , you can modify the protection schedules only if your cluster has shared volumes.
