Central Management Console

The Rapid Recovery Central Management Console is an optional component intended for environments with two or more Rapid Recovery Cores. This component is a web portal providing a central interface where you can group, manage, and generate reports for multiple Cores.

Operating system requirements for the Central Management Console are identical to the requirements for the Rapid Recovery Core. These components can be installed on the same machine or on different machines, as your needs dictate.

After installation, you must configure the Central Management Console by adding Cores you want to manage, either individually, or as part of Core groups.

Note: You must run the installer with local administrator privileges.

The Windows 8, 8.1, and 10, and Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 operating systems must have the ASP.NET 4.5 feature installed on the server for proper loading of the GUI. This configuration is included for you as part of the Rapid Recovery installer.

For more information about installing this component, see the topic "Installing the Rapid Recovery Central Management Console" in the Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery Installation and Upgrade Guide.

For more information about configuring this component, see the topic Configuring the Rapid Recovery Central Management Console in the Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery User Guide.

For more information about understanding the UI of this component, see the topic Understanding the Rapid Recovery Central Management Console in the Dell Data Protection | Rapid Recovery User Guide.
