Adding an NFS repository

Previous Next

Your /etc/exports file must contain the export directory and a list of the IPs that can connect to the repository. You may list each — the vRanger machine and any VMware® ESXi™ hosts using direct-to-target — or use a wildcard *. The export directory should be shared with read/write asynchronous access. For an export directory of /backups, this entry would look like:
In the Add Network File Share 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 repository.
Export Directory: Specify the Export directory, which is similar in concept to a network share. You need to create a target subdirectory in the export directory.
Target Directory: Enter a subdirectory of the NFS Export directory. This subdirectory is the location to which savepoints are written.
CAUTION: If you use the Encrypt all backups to this repository feature, make certain to retain the password you enter. There is no back-door or administrator-level password. If the password is unknown, the backups are not usable.
If you want these backups password-protected, select Encrypt all backups to this repository, enter a Password for the encrypted repository, and then confirm the password by re-entering it.
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.
