On the Replication Network Mapping page, you specify the network on the target host to which the VM nics should connect.
1 Select the Network Mapping you want to use for this job.
The Select which Hard Disk(s) to replicate page lets you include or exclude specific disks from replication.You may select a Primary Datastore, which is used as the default for all disks in this job, letting you configure only the exceptions.
2 In the Target Datastore column, verify that the Primary Datastore has been populated.
3 If you want the disk to replicate to a different datastore, click the browse button (…) next to the Target Datastore selection.
4 On the Select Primary Storage page, review the list of datastores.This page lists all datastores associated with the selected host. Datastores are first grouped based on whether they are governed by a storage policy. Datastores are also grouped based on whether they reside in a DRS cluster. You can expand or collapse groups as needed.
6 When the Select which Hard Disk(s) to replicate page appears, click Next.
The Replication Options page lets you configure additional operations performed during the replication job. You may also view the transport failover preferences, and modify them as needed.
If this flag is selected, vRanger updates the VM Notes in VC with the most recent replication task status.NOTE: vRanger maintains the existing VM notes in VMware® vCenter™, appending the replication status to the end. This option enables the VMware® Tools when creating a snapshot. Use this flag if you are replicating a database server. During this process, vRanger freezes or pauses writes on supported applications to provide a consistent image of VSS-enabled databases. For more information, see Physical backup transport options. Selecting this option enables ABM, which lets vRanger skip data that recognized as removed on Windows® NTFS — including junk data in recycle bin.NOTE: With this option enabled, junk data in recycle bin and deleted data on the VM are not replicated.If you want to change the Transport Failover order, click Modify. For more information, see Configuring transport failover options.
The Recurrence Schedule Selection page lets you indicate whether the job should be done on demand — at this moment — or at a future time. To schedule a future occurrence, you must define the start time, recurrence pattern, and range of recurrence.
1 On the Recurrence Schedule Selection page, select from the options described in the following table.
In this section, you establish how often the report should be generated. There are five options within this section:
• Daily: The daily option can be scheduled to run the report every weekday or every x number of days.
• Weekly: vRanger can be configured to run on weekly intervals, from every week to every 99 weeks. The day of the week on which to run reports can be configured.
• Monthly: The monthly option offers the following configurations:
▪ Day [x] of every [y] month:x can be any value from 1 to 31. This value determines the day of the month on which the job occurs.y can be any value from 1 to 99. This value determines the monthly interval — for example, every two months sets the job to run every other month.
▪ The [f] [d] of every [y] month(s):f can be either: first, second, third, fourth or last.d can be: weekday, weekend day, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.y can be any value from 1 to 99. This value determines the monthly interval — for example, every two months sets the report to run every other month.
• Yearly: The yearly option offers the following configurations:
▪ Every [m] [x]:m is any month of the year. This value determines the month of the year in which the report occurs.x can be any value from 1 to 31. This value determines the day of the month on which the report occurs.
▪ The [f] [d] of [m]:f can be either: first, second, third, fourth, or last.d can be: day, weekday, weekend day, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.m is any month of the year. This value determines the month of the year in which the report occurs.
• Interval: The Interval option offers the following configurations:
▪ Day(s). The default is 0, which lets you replicate more frequently than daily.
▪ Hour(s). The default is 1. To replicate more frequently, change to 0 and configure a Minute(s) value.
▪ Minute(s). The default is 0. The minimum interval is five minutes.
• No end date: The job recurs until it is stopped.
• End after: Select the number of occurrences.
• End by: Select the date by which to end the recurrence.
