Customizing nightly jobs for a protected machine

Nightly jobs can be configured at the Core level or at the machine level. When nightly jobs are set at the Core level, the changes are applied to all relevant machines protected by that Core. Changes made to the nightly jobs at the machine level supersede the changes made at the Core level, and apply only to the machines specified.

For a list of all nightly jobs, including descriptions and the scope available for each, see the topic Understanding nightly jobs.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to make changes to the nightly jobs for a single protected machine.

1.
In the Rapid Recovery Core Console, under the Machines menu, click the IP address or machine name for the machine for which you want to customize nightly jobs.
The Summary page for the selected machine appears.
2.
Click the Settings menu.

The Settings page appears, showing configuration settings for the selected machine.

Optionally, click the Nightly Jobs link to scroll down in the Settings page to view nightly jobs settings.

NOTE: For information about the Rollup setting, including setting a custom retention policy, see Customizing retention policy settings for a protected machine.

Managing machines

Removing a machine

When you remove a machine from protection on the Rapid Recovery Core, you are presented with two options: you can keep the recovery points saved thus far to the Core, or you can remove the recovery points.

If you keep the recovery points, you have what is known as a “recovery points only” machine. Restore and mount operations continue to be available from the recovery points captured from the machine when it was under protection. However, backups for the protected machine no longer continue.

If you remove the recovery points, this action deletes any snapshot data for that formerly protected machine from the Rapid Recovery Core.

Complete the steps in the following procedure to remove a machine from protection in your Rapid Recovery environment.

1.
From the Rapid Recovery Core Console, in the left navigation pane under Protected Machines, click the machine you want to remove.
2.
On the Summary page for the relevant machine, click Remove Machine.
Rapid Recovery removes the machine from protection and cancels all active tasks for that machine.
