OceanStor ReplicationDirector installation process


The OceanStor ReplicationDirector (mainstream version: V100R003C10) has the following installation components:
1. OceanStor ReplicationDirector server
The OceanStor ReplicationDirector server can be installed on a VM or physical server using an ISO image, template, or software package.
2. OceanStor ReplicationDirector agent
An OceanStor ReplicationDirector agent needs to be installed on the disaster recovery host if the protected object is an Oracle database, IBM DB2 database, Microsoft SQL Server database, Microsoft Exchange Server email database, or local NTFS file system. The agent can be installed on a VM or physical server using a software package.
3. VRG
The host replication software VRG needs to be installed if the protected object is a FusionSphere VM and host replication-based disaster recovery is used.

OceanStor ReplicationDirector positioning
The OceanStor ReplicationDirector (mainstream version: V100R003C10) is designed to manage the disaster recovery services of enterprise data centers. With the high application-aware capabilities and integrated value-added features of Huawei storage products, the OceanStor ReplicationDirector ensures service consistency during disaster recovery. The OceanStor ReplicationDirector helps users efficiently configure and monitor disaster recovery services and also conveniently perform data recovery and tests.

OceanStor ReplicationDirector features
The OceanStor ReplicationDirector (mainstream version: V100R003C10) has the following features: 1. Simplicity and high efficiency The OceanStor ReplicationDirector uses an application-based method to manage disaster recovery services and guides you through the disaster recovery service configurations step by step. It supports one-click disaster recovery test, planned migration, failover, and reprotection. 2. Visualization By graphically displaying the physical topologies of global disaster recovery and the logical topologies of service protection, the OceanStor ReplicationDirector enables you to easily manage the entire disaster recovery process. The execution status of protected groups and recovery plans is clear. 3. Integration The OceanStor ReplicationDirector integrates storage resource management. It meets the O&M requirements of various application scenarios, such as active-passive data centers, three data centers in two cities, and active-active data centers, reducing O&M costs and improving O&M efficiency. The OceanStor ReplicationDirector supports REST and SNMP v3 northbound interfaces, which can be connected to third-party systems. 4. Robust reliability The OceanStor ReplicationDirector ensures that the applications and data at the disaster recovery site are consistent with those at the production site. After the production site fails, the disaster recovery site immediately takes over services from the production site, ensuring service continuity. The multi-site deployment improves the reliability of the disaster recovery management system. The OceanStor ReplicationDirector backs up management data automatically so that the management system can be recovered rapidly in the event of a disaster.

Why OceanStor ReplicationDirector Fails to Start After Installed On Virtual Machines?
Set the memory and CPU resources allocated to the OceanStor ReplicationDirector virtual machine to fixed sizes instead of dynamic allocation. For details about how to set sizes of memory and CPU resources, see the OceanStor ReplicationDirector standard configuration. Restart the virtual machine and shut down all virtual machines that are not in use.
