Performing group actions

You can perform group actions on any group appearing in the left navigation area of the Rapid Recovery Core Console. If the group contains dissimilar members (for example, replicated machines and recovery points-only machines), then the actions you request will only be performed on the relevant group members.

Use the procedure below to perform group actions on a custom group.

  1. Navigate to the Rapid Recovery Core Console.
  2. In the Protected Machines menu, scroll your cursor over the custom group for which you want to perform a group action.
  3. Click on the[More}(More) drop-down menu for that group, and then select an action as follows:
    • To force an incremental snapshot or base image for all of the protected machines in the group, click Force Snapshot or Force Base Image, as appropriate.
    • To pause protection for all of the protected machines in the group, click Pause Protection and then specify resumption parameters.
    • To resume protection for all of the protected machines in the group for which protection has been paused, click Resume Protection and then confirm that you want to resume.
    • To refresh the information for all of the objects in the group, click Refresh Metadata.
    • To pause replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Pause.
    • To resume replication for all replicated machines in this group for which replication has been paused, under Replication, click Resume.
    • To force replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Force.
    • To remove replication for all replicated machines in this group, under Replication, click Remove.
    • To remove recovery points-only machines from this Core and discard the recovery points, under Recovery Points Only, click Remove Recovery Points.
    • For custom groups only, to modify the label for the custom group, select Edit.
    • For custom groups only, to remove the custom group from the navigation menu, select Remove label.

Viewing all machines in a custom group on one page

Clicking the name of a custom group takes you to a Machines page that lists all the machines in that custom group. You can then perform some functions on all machines from the Actions menu, or you can perform functions individually by selecting commands from each individual machine.

Snapshots and recovery points

This section describes how to use and manage the snapshots and recovery points generated by Rapid Recovery. It includes information about mounting, viewing, and forcing, as well as migrating and deleting recovery points.

Topics include:

Managing snapshots and recovery points

A recovery point is a collection of snapshots taken of individual disk volumes and stored in the repository. Snapshots capture and store the state of a disk volume at a given point in time while the applications that generate the data are still in use. In Rapid Recovery, you can force a snapshot, temporarily pause snapshots, and view lists of current recovery points in the repository as well as delete them if needed. Recovery points are used to restore protected machines or to mount to a local file system.

The snapshots that are captured by Rapid Recovery are done so at the block level and are application aware. This means that all open transactions and rolling transaction logs are completed and caches are flushed to disk before creating the snapshot.

Rapid Recovery uses a low-level volume filter driver, which attaches to the mounted volumes and then tracks all block-level changes for the next impending snapshot. Microsoft Volume Shadow Services (VSS) is used to facilitate application crash consistent snapshots.
