Configuring the RP Store for VMware Live Sync I/O

Configure a Recovery Point Store (RP Store) on the destination site. The RP Store records application-consistent recovery points (ACRPs) and associated updates as point-in-time recovery points for each replication pair.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Storage Resources > RP Store.
  2. Right-click RP Store, and then click Add.

    The Add RP Store dialog box appears.

  3. Provide the following information:
    1. In the Name box, type the name of the RP Store.
    2. From the MediaAgent list, select a VSA proxy on the destination site as the MediaAgent.

      The MediaAgent writes data to the RP Store disk.

    3. Select one of the following options:
      • To use a local disk as the mount path, select Local path and then, for Disk Device, browse to select the path for the storage location.
      • To use a network drive as the mount path, select Network path, and then provide the credentials and folder for the network location.
    4. For Off-Peak Time, identify the time period when the RP Store can perform merge operations with the least impact on operations:
      1. Click Add.

        The Time Intervals wizard opens.

      2. To specify off-peak time, select the days of the week and specify the do not run time interval.
      3. Click OK.
    5. Click OK.
  4. To specify the maximum disk space for the RP Store at the provided path, perform the following steps:
    1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Storage Resources > RP Store.
    2. Right-click the RP Store, and then click Properties.

      The RP Store Library Properties dialog box appears.

    3. Under RP Store Space Thresholds, change the value of Maximum (GB).

      By default, the maximum value is set to 500 GB.

    4. Click OK.

      Note: After the value is changed, restart the Block Level Replication service on the VSA proxy at the destination site.
