Using recovery pauses

A recovery pause allows you to suspend the recovery of one or more domain controllers right before they enter a certain recovery stage. You can then resume the recovery of the domain controllers from the point at which it was paused.

For example, recovery pauses let you temporarily suspend the recovery of particular domain controllers in order you could perform a manual action outside of Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition.

Important: Recovery pauses cannot be used to prioritize the recovery of certain critical domain controllers, domains, or sites in your Active Directory forest.

In your recovery project, you can use recovery pauses of the following types:

  • Manual pauses. Allow you to pause the recovery of a domain controller at any recovery step you want. A manual recovery pause only applies to one domain controller. For more information, see Managing manual pauses on page 154.
  • Automatic pauses. Allow you to pause the recovery of one or more domain controllers of your choice at the recovery stage you want. Once you configure and save an automatic pause, you can reuse or reconfigure it according to your needs. An automatic pause is only applicable to certain recovery stages. For more information, see Managing automatic pauses on page 154.

In this section:

Managing manual pauses

In a recovery project, you can use manual pauses to pause any recovery step of a domain controller.

In this section:

Creating a manual pause

To create a manual pause

  1. Open or create a recovery project.
  2. In the list of domain controllers, right-click the domain controller whose recovery you want to pause, and then click Pause next recovery step on the shortcut menu.

The manual pause will activate before the next recovery step begins for the domain controller. The pause does not apply to the recovery step that is currently underway.

To view the current and the next recovery step for a domain controller, use the Progress tab in the Domain Controller Recovery Settings and Progress area.

Releasing a manual pause

To release a manual pause

  1. In the list of domain controllers, right-click the domain controller on which you want to release an active manual pause.
  2. On the shortcut menu, click Resume next recovery step.

This command is only applicable to the currently active manual pause. It is not applicable to any automatic pauses that may be active for the domain controller.

Monitoring active pauses

To monitor active pauses, you can use the List of Domain Controllers area. The domain controllers whose recovery is currently paused are labeled with the following icon:

Table 28: Active pause icon

Icon Description

Indicates that the recovery of the domain controller is paused.

To view which recovery stage or step is now paused, click the domain controller in the list, and then open the Progress tab. The paused recovery stage or step is also labeled with the pause icon.
