Title:  Changing scenario properties without stopping the scenario


This document explains what scenario properties can be modified without stopping a scenario (modifying scenario properties on the fly).


CA ARCserve RHA has a new feature which allows you to modify scenario properties without having to stop the scenario.

The following properties can be modified without having to stop the RHA scenario:

  • Spool Settings
  • Scripts
  • Event Notifications
  • Bandwidth Throttling
  • Is-Alive Timeout

When a scenario is in a running state the properties such as spool, bandwidth throttling can be modified. If a property is grayed out in R16 when the scenario is running then this value can't be modified without stopping the scenario.

Follow the steps below to modify the Spool location of a host:

  1. Highlight the scenario and click on the Master host and then click on the 'Properties' tab. Click on 'Spool' and change the location to the new directory. Change the Spool location and select a new directory.

  2. Once you select a new directory for Spool an icon will appear next to the Scenario Name. See screenshot below.

    Figure 1

  3. Click on Scenario | Save and the following window will appear

    Figure 2

  4. Click on 'Apply' to save the changes or 'Discard' if you don't want to save the changes to the scenario.

Note: It is important to note that if you change the spool location when there is data in spool during synchronization then the data will remain in that location until synchronization finishes. Journal files will be written to the new spool location once you change the spool location. RHA will automatically commit all the journal in spool once synchronization finishes.

In the screenshot below the properties in white can be modified when the scenario is running. If the property is grayed out then you will need to stop the scenario in order to change the property.
