arcserve-KB : How to pause or resume heart beat?

Last Update: 2016-11-23 16:19:35 UTC


Virtual Standby lets you pause and resume heartbeats detected by the monitoring server. The heartbeat is the process whereby the source server and monitoring server communicate about the health of the source server. If the monitoring server does not detect a heartbeat after a specified period of time, Virtual Standby can provision the virtual machine to function as the source node. If you want to pause or resume the heartbeat temporarily, you can do so from the Virtual Standby Summary screen on the CA ARCserve D2D node.

Example: Pause the heartbeat when you want to take a source server offline for maintenance.


To pause and resume heartbeats

  1. Open the Virtual Standby click Nodes in the Navigation Bar. 

    The Node screen displays. 
  2. From the Groups list, click All Nodes, or click the group that contains the CA ARCserve D2D node that you want to log in to.

    The nodes list displays all nodes associated with the specified group.
  3. Browse to and click the node that you want to log in to.

    Click the double-right arrows next to the node name and click Log in to D2D on the pop-up menu.

    Note: If a new browser window does not open, verify that the pop-up options for your browser allow all pop-ups or pop-ups only for this website. 

    The CA ARCserve D2D Login screen opens.

  4. Complete the following fields on the CA ARCserve D2D Login screen:
  5. Click the Virtual Standby tab.

  6. (Optional) If you logged in to a monitoring server, expand All or Server Running from the Servers list, and click the node whose heartbeat you want to pause or resume.

    If the heartbeat is running, Pause Heartbeat appears in the Virtual Conversion task list. If the heartbeat is not running, Resume Heartbeat appears in the Virtual Conversion task list. The following diagram illustrates this behavior:
