Last Update: 2016-04-25 14:12:08 UTC


This document provides an overview of the CA ARCserve RHA r16.5 ARCserve Integration Feature to Backup Replicated Data.


  1. This document provides an overview of the CA ARCserve RHA r16.5 ARCserve Integration Feature to Backup Replicated Data.
  2. Select the Create New Scenario option and click 'Next' to create a new scenario.
  • The Select Server and Product Type screen appears.
  • In this screen a File Server DR scenario is 'Defined'.
  • Under the Tasks on Replica Section the ARCserve Backup radial button is selected and the ARCserve Server Name is 'Defined'.
  • The'with Integrity Testing' checkbox is also selected. (This is an optional feature).

      3.   The Master and Replica Hosts screen appears.

  • Enter the Scenario name for the scenario being created and the hostname or IP address for both the Master server and Replica server.
  • You can also use the browse buttons next to each hostname field to select the corresponding locations.

     4.  Select the data which you would like to be protected using ARCserve RHA.

     5.  Choose replica root directory or leave it default.

     6.  Change any applicable properties within the General Scenario Properties pane.

     7.  Change any applicable properties for either the Master or Replica CA RHA nodes.

  • The Replica node has a CA ARCserve Tasks section.
  • Here you can specify the number of snapshots to be retained on your replica node.
  • Each CA ARCserve Backup that runs will create a snapshot of the data being protected and store it on the Replica server.

      8.  The Scenario Validation Pane will display the state of the scenario.

     9.  The Scenario Run pane will give an overview of important scenario settings and the option to 'Run Now' or 'Finish'.

     10.  Upon scenario run for the first time you will be challenged to provide your CA ARCserve 'caroot' username and password.

     11.  Once the credentials are submitted CA RHA will communicate with the CA ARCserve Backup server and pass the scenario information into the CA ARCserve Backup Manager.

     12.  Confirmation that the CA RHA Scenario has been successfully passed to the CA ARCserve Manager will be displayed within the RHA Manager Event console.


     13.  Once the CA ARCserve RHA scenario has been created and updated into the CA ARCserve Manager, the backup job can be created within ARCserve.

  • Under the ARCserve Backup Manager select the correct scenario listed under the CA RHA Scenarios grouping of objects.


     14.   The rest of the ARCserve job is configured as normal.

  • When the backup job goes Active it sends a command to the RHA Control Service to suspend Replication.
  • At this time all changes are cached in spool on the Active Master RHA server.
  • A VSS Snapshot is created for the data on the replica and backed up.
  • Once the backup job is completed the RHA Control Service is notified and replication resumes from where it left off.
  • The RHA Manager Event console provides a real time account of these events as they occur.
