Enabling Replication for Shares or Partitions
Enable replication for a NAS share or VTL partition on the Q-Cloud Protect appliance to allow its stored data to be replicated to other DXi systems. Disable replication if you do not want to replicate the share or partition to other DXi systems.
Review the following information to better understand share or partition replication.
To be eligible for replication, a share or partition must have data deduplication enabled at the time it is created.
We recommend scheduling replication to run after backups complete. See Scheduling Events.
If you do not schedule replication jobs, replication will only occur if you manually replicate a share or partition or if you configure Directory/File Based Replication. Fore more information, see Replicating Shares or Partitions or Configuring Directory/File or Cartridge Based Replication.
If you disable replication for a share or partition, any replication jobs that are in progress or queued for that share or partition will transition to failure. Also, all replication job history for the disabled share or partition and associated target will be removed.
Disabling replication for a share or partition does not delete any of its currently scheduled replication events. If you no longer want scheduled replication jobs for the share or partition, manually delete the schedule. See Managing Scheduled Events.
From the Replication Jobs list, select the share or partition for which to enable replication and click Configure to display the Configure window.
- Select the Enable Replication check box to enable replication for the share or partition.
Clear the Enable Replication check box to disable replication for the share or partition.
- Select the check box for each replication target to which to replicate the share or partition.
You must select at least one target.
- Click Apply.
