Add source servers: Before you can begin backups, you must add one or more source objects to the vRanger inventory. Source objects can include VMware® vCenter® or VMware® ESXi™ hosts, Hyper-V® Clusters or hosts, or physical machines.
Add repositories: Repositories are where vRanger stores the savepoints created by each backup job. For the purposes of this integration, a NetVault SmartDisk repository should be used.

1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click anywhere, and click Add > NetVault SmartDisk (NVSD).
2
In the Add NVSD Repository dialog box, complete the following fields:
Repository Name: Enter a descriptive name for the repository.
Description: [Optional] Enter a long-form description for the repository.
DNS Name or IP: Enter the IP or FQDN for the NetVault SmartDisk server.
User name and Password: Enter the credentials for the account that vRanger should use to connect to the repository.
Target Directory: This value is a logical identifier for the repository on the NetVault SmartDisk Instance, rather than a specific directory on the NetVault SmartDisk server. If you have previously created one or more repositories on the target NetVault SmartDisk Instance, the existing target directories are available in a drop-down menu.
Port: Enter the port that vRanger should use to connect to the NetVault SmartDisk server — the default is 37453.
Timeout: Enter a value that determines how long to wait before terminating an idle connection.
3
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.
1
In the My Repositories pane, right-click the NetVault SmartDisk repository, and select Remove.
The Remove Repository dialog box appears, showing the savepoints in the selected repository.
2
To remove the savepoints, select Delete all savepoints in this repository.
3
If you chose to delete the savepoints, click OK when the Delete Savepoints dialog box appears.

Use the vRanger My Repositories pane to view information about the NetVault SmartDisk repositories that you have configured. Of particular importance is the amount of remaining free space and the deduplication ratio for that repository.
