Optional. Remote Core host machine IP address (with an optional port number). By default, the connection is made to the Core installed on the local machine.

Optional. User name for the remote Core host machine. If you specify a user name, you must also provide a password. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used.

Optional. Password to the remote Core host machine. If you specify a password, you also have to provide a user name. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used.

The name or space-separated names of virtualized machines.

This command specifies whether to remove all scheduled virtual exports.

Examples:

Remove all virtual standby exports:

Remove virtual standby export for two machines:

Replicate

Optional. Remote Core host machine IP address (with an optional port number). By default, the connection is made to the Core installed on the local machine.

Optional. User name for the remote Core host machine. If you specify a user name, you must also provide a password. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used.

Optional. Password to the remote Core host machine. If you specify a password, you also have to provide a user name. If none is provided, then the credentials for the logged-on user are used

Optional. Specify this option if you want to use a subscription to a third-party provider of off-site backup and disaster recovery services.

The name of the server where you want to establish replication. It includes the following parameters:

The port parameter is optional, with a default of 8006. If you used the request option, you should also use the user name and password for the target server.

Optional. Use the name of the replication job if you do not use the request option.

Optional. Use this option to specify a seed drive for the initial data transfer. The comment parameter is optional.

The list of protected machines you want to replicate. If you use the request option, list only the names or IP addresses of protected machines. Otherwise, list both protected machines and the corresponding remote repository name.

Example:

Replicate two protected machines to the remote Core using a seed drive from a network share:

Replication

Use the replication command to control existing replication between two Rapid Recovery Cores and manage pending replication requests.

NOTE: This command succeeds the Replicate command, which establishes the connection—called pairing—between the Cores and uses a seed drive for the initial data transfer. For more information about this command, see Replicate.

Usage

The list of incoming or outgoing replication jobs or pending replication requests.

Accepts the replication request.

Denies the replication request.

Ignores the replication request.

Use this option to delete an existing replication job or a machine from the replication job. Specify only the -id parameter to delete an entire replication relationship, or specify both the -id and -protectedserver parameters to delete only specific machines from replication.

Edits the schedule of existing replication jobs.

The identifier for the replication job or pending replication request. It can be a remote Core ID, host name, customer ID, email address, or pending replication request ID.

When responding to a replication request, use this option to apply your response to list of protected servers with a repository name or ID. Use the parameter "all" to apply response to all requested machines.

The comment you provide with the response to a pending replication request.

Use this option if specific recovery points from a deleted replicated machine should also be removed.

If you use the -edit option, this option specifies the type of replication schedule. Include one of the following four values:

daily - Replicate daily. Specify the -dailystarttime and -dailyendtime parameters.
custom - When using daily replication, use this value to schedule replication on weekdays or weekends. Specify the -weekdaystarttime, -weekdayendtime, -weekendstarttime, and -weekendendtime parameters.

Use only for the daily value of the -scheduletype option. It is used to establish a window of time for when replication should occur. Use this option to specify the earliest time of day when you want replication to start.

Use only for the daily value of the -scheduletype option. It is used to establish a window of time for when replication should occur. Use this option to specify the latest time of day when you want replication to start.

Use only for the custom value of the -scheduletype option. It is used to establish a window of time for when replication should occur. Use this option to specify the earliest time of a weekday when you want replication to start.
