Creating Report

Follow the instructions below to create a new Report.

1. Open the Web browser connected to the CDP Server 3.0 Web Interface and log in.

2. Click on "Recovery Points" in the Main Menu to open the "Recovery Points" screen.

3. Then click "Create New Report" in the Reporting menu located in the top left area.
4. The "Create New Report" window opens.
5. Familiarize yourself with the introductory information and click "Next."
7. On the next page, define a name and subject for the report and choose whether or not to enable it. A report's name must be unique and the report will only run on its schedule if it is enabled.
Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.
8. On the next screen, define how frequently the report will be run. You can choose from the following options:

  • On-demand report - run when you manually execute it.
  • Minutely report - defines the period in minutes of report execution.
  • Hourly report - defines the starting minute of the report.
  • Daily report - defines the starting minute and day hours of report execution.
  • Weekly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes and days of week of report execution.
  • Monthly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes and days of month of report execution.
  • Yearly report - defines the start time in hours and minutes, days of month, and months of year of report execution.
    Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.
    9. On the next screen, define the receipients for the report. You can choose from users and groups on the CDP server, or specify e-mail addresses to deliver the report to.

"Add Users" button allows to assign Users to the report.
Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

If you select the "Select Partition Tables to Restore" option, then three (3) additional steps arise:

  • Select Partition Tables
  • Map Partition Tables
  • Restore Partition Tables
9.1 Selecting Partition Tables

Select the partition table layout(s) for the filesystems you want to restore.

To display the partition table properties, click on the "Plus" icon in front of the partition table's name.
  • Content Type - Either MBR (Master Boot Record) or other special type of the partition.
  • Size - Size of the partition table in gigabytes.
  • Number Of Sectors - Shows the total number of partition table sectors.
  • Sector Size - The value in bytes of the sector.
  • Serial Number - Full serial number of the partition table.
  • Partitions - The list of partitions allocated with the partition table.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

9.2 Mapping Partition Tables

After choosing partition tables to restore, map the selected Partition Table(s) Recovery Points to physical Disks in the Target Agent. From the drop-down menu named "Click to Edit," select the physical Disks you are going to Restore to.

You are provided a table that allows you to map the chosen Partition Tables to physical Disks on the Target Agent. You can see as many lines in the table as the Partition Tables selected for Restore. Each Partition Table must be mapped to a physical Disk on the Target Agent before proceeding.

After selecting the Disks, click on "Next" to proceed to the next page.

9.3 Restoring Partition Tables

Perform the partition table restore by clicking on the "Restore Partition Tables" button. Once confirmed, the Partition Table Restore will be initiated. A busy indicator will be displayed while the Restore is in progress.

Restored partition tables will overwrite the existing partition table layout on the target devices.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

10. The following step requires you to map the chosen filesystems to the devices on the target machine.

From the drop-down menu called "Click to Edit," select destination devices for each source filesystem.

The target device must be large enough to hold the filesystem.
Each target device can only be selected once.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

11. Then you need to define the following options:

  • Reboot After Restore - Reboots the target host after the restore is performed. Select this checkbox to reboot your Agent after the Bare-Metal Restore is complete.
  • Check Filesystems After Restore - Checks the filesystems after the restore is performed.

Click "Next" to proceed to the following step.

12. On the "Summary" page, you will need to confirm the selected Bare-Metal Restore options. Each selected filesystem is listed, along with the name of the target device it is being mapped to.

Click "Restore" to start the Bare-Metal Restore task.

16. The data Restore is initiated. Click "OK" in the notification pop-up.

17. The Restore process starts and can take a while. You can go to the "Task History" screen to observe the task progress. See Accessing Task History.

The Task History page displays the State, Host, Type, Progress percentage, and the Started time stamp of the Bare-Metal Restore process.

You can find more information about the Restore process by reading the Log Messages. The Log Messages for the selected Task are displayed at the bottom of the page.

17. When the process is complete, you can reboot the server you just Restored by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del or by executing the reboot command in the root shell.

Make sure you eject the Disk from the CD-ROM drive so the server will boot from the hard Disk.
If the Disk you used for your Bare-Metal Restore is larger than the Disk you backed up previously, the free space on the new Disk will remain free. You can create a new Partition in this space.
