Changing target Core settings

You can change the host and port settings for individual target Cores from the source Core.

1.
On the source Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication). .

The Replication page appears.

In the Outgoing Replication pane, the summary table includes a row for each target Core that has been configured to replicate recovery points from this source Core.

The Settings dialog box appears.

Option

Description

Host

Enter the host for the target Core.

Port

Enter a port for the target Core to use for communication with the source Core.

Setting replication priority for a protected machine

Replication priority determines which replication jobs are sent to the Core first. Prioritization is set ordinally, on a scale of 1 to 10, where a priority of 1 is the first priority, and a priority of 10 is the last priority. When you first establish replication for any machine, its priority is set to 5. You can view and change priority at the protected machine level from the source Core.

In some cases, it is possible that some replication jobs are abandoned. For example, replication jobs can be abandoned if your environment is experiencing unusually high change rates or if your network does not have enough bandwidth. This situation is particularly likely if you set schedules which limit the hours when replication occurs in your environment. For more information about setting schedules replication, see Scheduling replication.

To ensure replication occurs for important machines first, set critical servers to a priority with a lower number (between 1 and 5). Set priority for less important machines to a higher number (between 6 and 10).

Setting replication priority to 4 for any protected machine assures its replication job is started before a machine with the default replication priority of 5. Replication jobs for machines with a priority of 3 are queued before 4, and so on. The lower the priority number, the sooner its replication jobs are sent. It is easy to remember that priority 1 is most important. Machines with a replication priority of 1 are the first machines queued for replication.

Complete the steps below to edit the settings that prioritize when a protected machine replicates.

1.
On the source Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).
The Replication page appears.
2.
In the Outgoing Replication pane, click the [Expand] arrow to the right of any source Core.
4.
Click the Priority drop-down list and select a priority, from 1 (Highest) to 10 (Lowest), based on your requirements.
5.
Click Save.

Removing outgoing replication from the source Core

Complete the steps in this procedure to remove one or more protected machines from replication on the source Core.

1.
On the source Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).

The Replication page appears.

In the Outgoing Replication pane, the summary table includes a row for each target Core that has been configured to replicate recovery points from this source Core.

4.
In the resulting dialog box, click Yes to confirm removal.

Removing incoming replication from the target Core

Complete the steps in this procedure to remove one or more protected machines from replication on the target Core.

1.
On the target Core, open the Rapid Recovery Core Console, and from the icon bar, click [Replication] (Replication).
The Replication page appears. In the Incoming Replication pane, the summary table includes a row for each source Core with protected machines that this target Core replicates.
To delete all machines replicated from the source Core to your target Core, in the Incoming Replication pane, select the check box for that Core.
The Remove Replication dialog box appears.
