Getting started Understanding the Quest DR Series Installing and configuring your Quest DR Series Installing vRanger Maintaining your DR Series appliance

Disabling repository replication

From the Tools menu on the vRanger toolbar, select Options. Under the Repositories node, select Replication.
Clear the check box for Enable savepoint replication for a successful backup job task or Schedule repository synchronization, or both.

Changing a replication repository to a primary repository

If your primary repository becomes corrupt or otherwise unavailable, you can quickly change your replication repository to a primary repository to continue backup and recovery operations.

In the My Repositories pane, right-click the replication repository, and click Remove.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that Delete all savepoints in this repository is not selected.
In the My Repositories pane, click Add.
Complete the Add Repository dialog box, and click OK.
When vRanger detects that the repository being added contains savepoint data and displays the Warning: Existing Repository Found dialog box, click Import to reconfigure the repository as a primary repository.

Removing a Quest Rapid Data Access (RDA) repository

The process for removing a Quest Rapid Data Access (RDA) repository is the same as removing any other repository type.

In the My Repositories pane, right-click the Quest Rapid Data Access (RDA) repository, and select Remove.
The Remove Repository dialog box appears, showing the savepoints in the selected repository.
Select Delete all savepoints in this repository.
To delete the savepoints in a replicated repository, select Delete all savepoints in replication repository.
When the Delete Savepoints dialog box appears, click OK.

Adding a Quest DR Series system as a CIFS repository

In the My Repositories pane, right-click anywhere, and click Add > Windows Share (CIFS).
In the Add Windows Network Share Repository dialog box, complete the following fields:
Repository Name: Enter a name for the repository.
Description: [Optional] Enter a long-form description for the repository.
User Name and Password: Enter the credentials for accessing the CIFS share.
Security Protocol: Select a protocol, NTLM (default) or NTLMv2.
Server: Enter the UNC path to the applicable repository directory. Alternatively, you may enter a partial path and click Browse to find the target directory.
IMPORTANT: Do not select Encrypt all backups to this repository. Using encryption or compression with deduplicated repositories limits or disables deduplication. Encryption and compression should not be used with any repository type that provides deduplication.
The connection to the repository is tested and the repository is added to the My Repositories pane and the Repository Information dialog box.
Import as Read-Only: To import all savepoint data into the vRanger database, but only for restores, click this button. You cannot back up data to this repository.
Import: To import all savepoint data into the vRanger database, click this button. vRanger is able to use the repository for backups and restores. vRanger requires read and write access to the directory.
Overwrite: To retain the savepoint data on the disk and not import it into vRanger, click this button. vRanger ignores the existence of the existing savepoint data and treats the repository as new.
Click Next.
