Viewing active alerts

After you start the recovery or verify settings operation on a recovery project, you can monitor active alerts in

the project.

The number of currently active alerts is displayed next to the Active alerts link in the Project Summary area of the Forest Recovery Console. You can click the Active alerts link to display a list of active alerts and view the details for each active alert.

To view the details of an active alert

  1. In the Project Summary area of the Forest Recovery Console, click the Active alerts link.
  2. Use the Active alerts list to select the alert whose details you want to view.
  3. Use the Alert details list to view the details of the selected alert.

Modifying an alert

For an existing alert, you can modify such settings as alert name, the recovery stage the alert informs you about, the list of domain controllers to which the alert applies, and the conditions when the alert becomes active.

To modify an alert

  1. Open the recovery project that includes the alert you want to modify.
  2. On the toolbar, click Configure Alerts.
  3. In the dialog box that opens, use the Alerts list to select the alert you want to modify.

  5. When you are finished, click OK to apply your changes.

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 Forest 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.
