Click the Recovery Points menu.
The Recovery Points page appears for the selected machine.
Optionally, in the Recovery Points pane, from the list of recovery points, click the right arrow [right arrow] symbol to expand the recovery point detail, showing volumes included in the recovery point.

Working with Linux recovery points

The recommended and supported method to mount and unmount recovery points from a protected Linux machine is to use the local_mount utility.

The procedures listed below specifically address using local_mount to mount and unmount Linux recovery points.

NOTE: For managing Linux recovery points in any other way, see Managing snapshots and recovery points, as all other management can be conducted from the Core Console.

Mounting a recovery point volume on a Linux machine

Using the local_mount utility in Rapid Recovery, you can remotely mount a volume from a recovery point as a local volume on a Linux machine.

Run the Rapid Recovery local_mount utility as root, or as the super user, for example:
At the Rapid Recovery mount prompt, enter the following command to list the protected machines.

A list of the machines that are protected by the Rapid Recovery server displays. Each machine is identified by the following: line item number, host/IP address, and an ID number for the machine.

For example: 7d658e5f-fa08-4600-95f0-5f486bc1b6a4#de0896fd-571a-4cc5-aeed-264d2c3c72f4#f377e145-dd4d-3ac3-5b15-37ce8f4913ba

A list of the base and incremental recovery points for the machine appears. The list includes the line item number, date and timestamp, location of volume, size of recovery point, and an ID number for the volume, which includes a sequence number at the end to identify the recovery point.

For example, 7d658e5f-fa08-4600-95f0-5f486bc1b6a4#de0896fd-571a-4cc5-aeed-264d2c3c72f4#f377e145-dd4d-3ac3-5b15-37ce8f4913ba:2

The flag in the command determines how to mount the recovery point. You can use one of the following options:
