Site-to-Site Replication allows administrators to replicate backup data contained in volumes and disk safes to other SBM protected machines. Once enabled and configured, all backup data is automatically replicated to the remote SBM protected machines. This allows administrators to transparently store data across SBM machines, even in different geographic locations, and use the replicated data to directly restore protected servers.
To access the Site-to-Site Replication settings, click Advanced Options in the Main Menu and select Remote Replication Options. Using the Remote Replication Options screen, administrators can configure the remote and outbound options and designate target servers.
To enable Site-to-Site replication, select the Enable check box in the Remote Replication Listener Options section. When this check box is selected, the designated server will listen for remote replication requests from other servers, and will allow other servers to connect to this one on the host and port specified in the fields below. This check box is not selected by default, and incoming replication requests from other servers are ignored.
In the Remote Replication Listener Options section, the following fields can be used to allow the SBM protected machine to receive replication data:
- Remote Replication Listener Options are settings related to allowing the SBM server receive replication data.
- Outbound Remote Replication Options control authentication and network settings for sending replication data.
- Target Servers is used to specify the receiving servers of replication data sent from the SBM server.
