Getting started > vRanger integration quick start for Quest® DR Series

1
Confirm integration requirements: Before starting the integration, confirm that you are using supported versions of vRanger and the DR Series software. For more information, see Product requirements for integration.
2
Install and configure the DR Series: To install your DR Series and integrate with vRanger, perform the following operations:
Install the DR Series hardware: Assemble the rails, and install and connect the DR Series to your infrastructure.
Log in and initialize the DR Series: Log in to the DR Series system CLI by using a local console keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) connection or an iDRAC connection. Configure your system network settings using the Initial System Configuration Wizard.
Configure network settings: Ensure that you have an active network connection and a fully configured IP address.
Register and configure your DR Series: Log in to the web interface and complete the registration process and Initial System Configuration Wizard, which includes password administration, Active Directory connection, and additional network configuration.
Create a storage container: Containers function like a shared file system, which can be assigned a connection type of None (to be defined later), NFS/CIFS, or RDA (includes Rapid Data Storage [RDS] clients). Containers can then be accessed using Network File System (NFS), Common Internet File System (CIFS), or RDA.
3
Install vRanger: Using the vRanger installer, install vRanger on a machine meeting the vRanger system requirements. For a high-level overview of the vRanger installation process, see Installing vRanger. For more information, see the Quest vRanger Installation/Upgrade Guide.
4
Create a Quest RDA repository: After vRanger is installed, add the DR Series to vRanger as a Quest RDA repository. Any backup written to this repository is deduplicated according to your DR Series configuration.
