Note: To enable a StorageServer to mirror data to another server, you need to add a MirrorServer to it (see Article 1108).
Once a MirrorServer has been added, open the Storage Platform Management Console in the Storage Platform Configuration view. Right-click the name of the Storage Platform you wish to configure and click Configure StorageServer. The dialog box that appears contains the following tabs:
1. Mirror To
Mirror this StorageServer: Tick if applicable.
Target: Specify the MirrorServer IP address and port number (e.g. 192.168.20.147:8443) and supply the Mirror Account details.
Mirror Schedule: Specify the mirroring frequency.
Create Catch-up: See Article 1113.
2. Mirror From
Select the login credentials to be allowed (Master Password and/or Mirror Account[s]).
If you select the Mirror Accounts check box, you can use the Add, Edit and Delete buttons to create and manage a list of accounts that will be allowed to mirror to this StorageServer.
Receive Catch-up: This field is used in the mirror catch-up functionality (see Article 1113).
HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) enables you to move roll-ups before they are deleted. (For more information on roll-ups, see Article 1098.) Roll-ups saved in HSM format can be archived to an external drive or network share and moved back to the live Storage Platform if data has to be recovered from a backup set that is no longer available.
Choose the Directory HSM format if you wish to store the roll-up data in its original directory structure.
Alternatively, select Tar File to compress each roll-up into a single .tar file, speeding up the transfer to the destination directory.
HSM folders: Specify the import and export locations for the HSM data. Please ensure that the directories specified have enough space to accommodate the data. To learn how to make this data available for restore via the backup client, see Article 1114.
Select which IP address the AccountServer should bind to. (This option is only enabled if more than one IP address is available.)
