Viewing the SQL Server Information pane

The SQL Server Information pane appears only for protected machines that are SQL Servers.

This pane contains summary information about the protected SQL Servers. You can expand the database information to see detail for each table in the database. You can also see the database or table name and the database path.

Viewing recovery points for a machine

The Recovery Points page shows a list of the recovery points collected for that protected machine as well as pertinent machine and repository data. On this page, you can mount, export, and restore specific recovery points, as well as delete recovery points.

The page is divided into two panes: Recovery Points Summary and Recovery Points. The Summary pane does not include any actionable links. It displays the following data for the machine.

Viewing events for a protected machine

On the Events page, you can view the jobs that occurred or are in progress for the protected machine you selected. Buttons at the top of the page let you navigate to lists of jobs in each of the three categories of activities:

Tasks. A job that the Rapid Recovery must perform to operate successfully.
Alerts. A notification related to a task or event that includes errors and warning.
Journal. A composite of all protected machine tasks and alerts.

Status icons

Each icon represents a different job status. For alerts and tasks, clicking one of the icons lets you filter the list by that status, essentially generating a report. Clicking the icon a second time removes the filter for that status. You can filter by more than one status. Statuses include:

Active. A job that is in progress.
Queued. A job that is waiting for another job to complete before it can initiate.
Waiting. A job waiting for your approval or completion, such as a seed drive. (For more information about seed drives, see Replication.)
Complete. A job that completed successfully.
Failed. A job that failed and did not complete.

Service icon

This button adds services jobs to the list of jobs. When you click this icon, a smaller service icon appears on each status icon, which lets you filter by service jobs that have those statuses (if any exist). Examples of services jobs include deleting index files or removing a machine from protection.

Export type drop-down list

The drop-down list includes the formats to which you can export the event report. Available for tasks only. It includes the following formats:
