This configuration guide provides an example of backup procedures that uses Arcserve installed on Windows Server 2012 R2.
Relevant drivers and tools are recognized at the timing of restore media creation and restoring. Therefore, please make sure to install and save those in advance on your preferred place of the backup target server (where the server creates this restore media) so that you can backup them entirely.
1.4.1. Drivers after Restore¶
When restoring to a virtual server on ECL2.0, a VirtIO’s NIC driver will become uninstalled after the restore.
Therefore, it is essential to install necessary drivers (all files stored in the NetKVM folder, viostor folder and Ballon folder respectively.) Before starting a backup, please save the drivers to the backup source server.
Note: File to be downloaded:
Stable virtio-win iso: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso
From the downloaded file above, obtain the NetKVM folder, viostor folder and Ballon folder.
As the example screen below shows, there is no NIC recognized when opening the Device Manager screen on the restored OS. If the driver has been saved in the backup destination, you can install it immediately after restoring so that it can be recognized. Please refer to the Arcserve Configuration Guide: Restore for actual procedures.
To display the Arcserve setting screen on the Arcserve-installed server, select the Arcserve icon pictured below from the task bar located at the lower part of the OS desktop screen.
Select “Open Arcserve UDP Agent”.
When the login screen appears, enter your login name and password. Then, click [ Log In ].
After login, the administration screen will be displayed. Click [ Navigation ] - [ Tasks ] - [ Settings ] in the right pane of the administration screen.
The [ Settings ] screen will be displayed. Click [ Backup Settings ] - [ Protection Settings ] on the [ Settings ] screen.
Specify an arbitrary backup destination.
When you specify a backup destination, you may be asked to enter the user name and password.
After filling in all required items, click [ OK ].
Then, click [ Browse ] in order to select a backup destination.
After selecting the backup location, click [ OK ].
Confirm that the correct file backup destination has been selected, and click [ Save Settings ].
If you want to execute the schedule function, please create the necessary settings required for it separately. In this example, the settings created above are to execute the backup function immediately.
After saving the settings, click [ Backup Now ] to execute.
Choose a backup pattern from three options, and click [ OK ]. In this example, select “Full Backup”.
Backup will proceed. When clicking [ Details ], the backup status monitor will be displayed.
When the backup has been performed properly, the message “Last Backup - Full Backup” like the picture below will appear.
In addition, the number of full backups in protected summary has been increased.
You can see that the backup relating files are saved in the backup destination folder which you specified optionally.
Now, backup has been completed.
