CA ARCserve Backup Server Admin or the Central Agent Admin can be used to change the assigned priority classifications of your CA ARCserve Backup nodes. These tiers are used to filter the information displayed on the CA ARCserve Backup Dashboard by the priority level of the monitored nodes.
The Node Tier Configuration dialog contains three priority categories (High Priority, Medium Priority, and Low Priority), and is automatically populated when a node is added to your system and browsed. By default, a High Priority tier is configured to include all CA ARCserve Backup servers (Primary and Member) and any nodes with CA ARCserve Backup application agents installed (such as Oracle, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Sharepoint Server, and so on), and a Low Priority tier is configured to include all other nodes (having file system agents installed). The Medium Priority tier is not configured to include any nodes, and is available for customized use.
The node assignments for each tier can be reconfigured and customized to meet your individual needs by using the Node Tier Configuration dialog, which is accessed from the CA ARCserve Backup Server Admin or from the Backup Manager (right-click Windows Systems in Source tab) or from the Central Agent Admin (right-click Windows Systems).
To configure node tiers
1. Right-click the Windows Systems object, and select Node Tier Configuration.
The Node Tier Configuration dialog opens, displaying the nodes assigned to each Tier category (High Priority, Medium Priority, Low Priority).
2. Select one or more nodes that you want to reassign to a different tier category and click on the corresponding arrow icon to move the selected nodes from one tier to another.
Note: Multiple nodes can be selected for tier assignment by using the 'CTRL' or 'SHIFT' key combinations.
■ Click the single arrow icon to move only the selected nodes.
■ Click the double arrow icon to move all the node in the tier.
3. Click OK when done.
The node tier assignments have been changed to meet your individual needs.
