Rapid Recovery lets you monitor, schedule, and adjust replication at the overall, core, and protected machine levels.
You can edit the following replication settings:
Unless you change the default behavior by setting a replication schedule, the Core starts a replication job immediately after completion of every backup snapshot, checksum check, attachability check, and the nightly jobs. For more information, see Scheduling replication.
You can change the replication schedule to reduce the load on the network.
Complete the steps in the following procedure to set a replication schedule for any replicated machine.
The Replication Schedule for [CoreName] dialog box opens.
The schedule is applied to all replication to the selected target Core.
If you chose not to create a seed drive when you configured replication, you can create a seed drive using the Copy function in the protected machine drop-down menu.
|Local||Output location||Enter the location for the output. It is used to define the location path where you want the archive to reside; for example, d:\work\archive.|
|Network||Output location||Enter the location for the output. It is used to define the location path where you want the archive to reside; for example, \\servername\sharename.|
|User Name||Enter a user name. It is used to establish logon credentials for the network share.|
|Password||Enter a password for the network path. It is used to establish logon credentials for the network share.|
|Cloud||Account||Select an account from the drop-down list.
Note: To select a cloud account, you must first have added it in the Core Console. For more information, see Adding a cloud account.
|Container||Select a container associated with your account from the drop-down menu.|
|Folder Name||Enter a name for the folder in which the archived data is to be saved. The default name is Rapid-Recovery-Archive-[DATE CREATED]-[TIME CREATED]|
|Maximum Size||Large archives of data can be divided into multiple segments. Select the maximum amount of space you want to reserve for creating the seed drive by doing one of the following:
|Recycle action||In the event the path already contains a seed drive, select one of the following options:
|Comment||Enter a comment that describes the seed drive.|
|Add all Agents to Seed Drive||Select this option to replicate all protected machines on the source core using the seed drive. This option is selected by default.|
|Build recovery point chains (fix orphans)||Select this option to replicate the entire recovery point chain to the seed drive. This option is selected by default.
Note: Typical seeding in Rapid Recovery 5.4.x replicated only the latest recovery point to the seed drive, which reduced the amount of time and space required for creating the seed drive. Opting to build recovery point chains to the seed drive requires enough space on the seed drive to store the latest recovery points from the specified protected machines, and may take additional time to complete the task.
When replication is set up, you can monitor the status of replication tasks for the source and target Cores. You can refresh status information, view replication details, and more.
|Seed Drives (#)||After you specify the use of a seed drive when defining replication, until you abandon or consume it, a Seed Drives (#) link appears on the Outgoing Replication pane on the source Core. The number displayed indicates how many seed drives are pending.
Click this link to list seed drives that have been written but not yet consumed by the target Core. Further expand the collapsible menu to show information about outstanding seed drives, including the target Core and the date range of the recovery points included in the seed drive.
|In the drop-do, click Abandon to abandon or cancel the seed process. wn menu|
|Outgoing Replication||Lists all target Cores to which the source Core is replicating. It includes a state indicator, the target Core name, the number of machines being replicated, and the progress of a replication transmission.||On a source Core, in the drop-down menu, you can select the following options:
|Incoming Replication||Lists all source machines from which the target receives replicated data. It includes the remote Core name, state, machines, and progress.
Lists all source Cores from which the target receives replicated data. The display name for the source Cores listed are populated from the value in the Replication Wizard when defining replication. It includes a state indicator, the remote Core name, and the progress of a replication transmission.
|On a target Core, in the drop-down menu, you can select the following options:
|Pending Replication Requests||This information applies to managed service providers only. When a customer clicks he Requests link in the Incoming Replication pane, a summary table section appears listing the customer ID, email address, and host name for the request.||In the drop-down menu, click Ignore to ignore or reject the request, or Review to review the pending request.|
