Overview

A browse operation allows you to view the Live Copy of replicated data on the destination computer, and to see the Recovery Points that have been created for the Replication Sets without actually recovering the data. The browse option can be invoked from the Client, CDR Agent, Replication Set, or application iDataAgent level; there are some differences in what you will see at each level, and this can be useful to narrow the search to a specific part of the data, or focus on what you want to do with the data you browse.

Replication Set

When you right-click a Replication Set, and select Browse Recovery Points from the All Tasks menu, the Recovery Points dialog is displayed. In this dialog, you can do the following:

  • View a list of Recovery Points, Consistent Recovery Points, snapshots, and the Live Copy (the destination path)
  • View the applications protected by each item in the list
  • View the source and destination paths for a Recovery Point
  • Mount (or for Windows, share) the snapshots that comprise each Recovery Point
  • Copy back the Live Copy or Recovery Points
  • Initiate an on-demand, full backup of a Recovery Point

CDR Agent

When you right-click a CDR Agent, and select Browse from the All Tasks menu, the Browse window is displayed. In this window, you can do the following:

  • View Recovery Points, Consistent Recovery Points, snapshots, and the creation time and associated Replication Set
  • View the source path, destination path, and protected applications for each snapshot
  • View the mount point or share name if a Recovery Point is mounted or shared
  • Mount the snapshots that comprise a Recovery Point
  • Copy back Recovery Points

Application iDataAgent

On a Client where the CDR Agent is replicating application data (Exchange, SQL, Oracle), when you right-click the application iDataAgent, and select Browse Backup Data from the All Tasks menu, the Browse Options dialog is displayed. After you select browse options, the Browse window is displayed. In this window, you can do the following:

  • View Recovery Points, Consistent Recovery Points, and snapshots
  • Mount the snapshots that comprise a Recovery Point
  • Copy back the Live Copy and/or Recovery Points

Client

When you right-click a Client with the CDR Agent installed, and select Browse & Recover from the All Tasks menu, the Browse Options dialog is displayed. After you select browse options, the Browse window is displayed. In this window, you can do the following:

  • View Recovery Points and Consistent Recovery Points, snapshots, and the creation time and associated Replication Set
  • View the source path, destination path, and protected applications for each snapshot
  • View the mount point or share name if a Recovery Point is mounted or shared
  • Mount the snapshots that comprise a Recovery Point
  • Copy back Recovery Points
