A Host must have a Disk Safe before any Backup jobs will run.
Follow the instructions below to create a Disk Safe in your Windows Web Server For Data Centers.
1. Open the Web browser connecting to the Windows Web Server Web Interface and log in.
2. Click on "Hosts" in the Main Menu to access the "Hosts" page.
The "Hosts" page typically loads after you log in to the system.
3. Select the appropriate Host by clicking on the Host Name link under "Host Name". You can also click on the corresponding "Open" link under "Actions".
|New Feature in Version 2|
To find a Host, you can use the Host List Filter.
4. Select "Disk Safes" in the "Host" Menu.
5. Click on "New Disk Safe" on the "Disk Safes" page.
If you are creating a new Disk Safe for a Host with an existing Disk Safe, you will be warned that your next Backup will take a new Seed Image of all Partitions on the Host. If you want to proceed, click on "Continue".
6. When the "Start New Disk Safe" page has loaded, define the following settings specific to the new Disk Safe:
- Compression Level - Define the level of compression for the Disk Safe.
This setting can be changed later.
See Windows Web Server - Disk Safe Compression for more details.
- Defragment if free space exceeds x - Select the check box and a value from the drop-down menu. This setting limits the free space to "X." The Defragment Task runs when the free space limit is reached. The Defragment Task shrinks the unused space by deleting or rotating out unwanted Incremental Backups in your Disk space. The Defragment Task reduces the Disk usage counted against Quotas. If your Disk Safe has more than the selected percentage of wasted or free space, defragmentation will be launched. This Task will shrink and optimize your Disk Safe files after every Backup operation.
Recommended. This setting can be changed later.
For more information, see Disk Safe Defragmentation.
- Use Encryption - Select the check box to enable encryption for the Disk Safe. This setting allows the Backup Data to be encrypted during the storing process.
Once a Disk Safe with encryption enabled is created, only the passphrase can be changed.
Encryption cannot be disabled later without creating a new Disk Safe.
For more information, refer to Disk Safes Encryption.
7. Click on "OK".
