The host that vRanger resides on has failed. How do you recover the vRanger instance and resume backups/replications?
We are assuming that there is a backup of the vRanger database. It is recommended to backup the vRanger database regularly.
Connect to the SQL server.
For default instances using Windows Authentication run:
For named instances using Windows Authentication run:
If you are using SQL Authentication use the -U option to specify a user.
For Example: sqlcmd -U MyLogin -S
Restore the database with the following command:
RESTORE DATABASE vRangerPro FROM DISK = 'C:\vRangerDB.bak' WITH REPLACE
The inventory items, VA's and repositories will still exist, however there will be no credentials. Re-credential the VC, Hosts, VA and repositories within vRanger.
Run your existing tasks.
