Adding Vault Replication Targets
In the Replication Settings page, you can manage and add Vault Replication Targets.
- To add a new Vault Replication Target, click the Add Vault button.
- Use the Enabled checkbox to enable or disable replication to this Vault.
- Click the Vault Setting dropdown menu to select an available Vault. To configure a Vault, please reference the Adding Vaults and Managing Vault Settings article.
- Use the Initial Snapshot dropdown menu to select the snapshot that should be used as the Base Image when replicating to the Vault.
- Optionally, if you would like to use USB Seeding to deliver the Protected System Base Image to the datacenter on a USB hard drive for this Vault, click the USB Seeding checkbox.
- Click Save to save your Replication settings.
Deleting Vault Replication Target(s)
In the Replication Settings page, you can delete Vault Replication Targets.
- Click the Delete button for the Vault Replication Target that you wish to remove.
Important: Deleting a Vault Replication Target also deletes the Protected System from the Target Vault.
- Click Save to save changes and begin the deletion process; or click Cancel to abort.
Note: The Replication Settings window will show Deleting for deleted Vault targets until the Appliance has confirmed that the Protected System has been fully deleted from the Vault. This normally takes only a few minutes.
