  • How to Backup your data residing on Open-E DSS V6 to iSCSI Target Volume over a LANSoftware Version: DSS ver. 6.00 up12Presentation updated: October 2010
  • Backup to an iSCSI Target Volume over a LAN SAMPLE CONFIGURATIONThis document will explain how to Backup to an iSCSI Target Volume over the LAN, 2DSS V6 systems are required with RAID Arrays.Backing up to an iSCSI Target Volume over the LAN uses two of the features built intothe Open-E DSS V6:• Local Backup,• Restore.An example of the configuration:• First Array RAID on the DSS1 is for live data on volume group DATA (vg00),• Second RAID Array on DSS2 is for backup as volume group BACKUP (vg01) configure on the iSCSI Target Volume.Setup Backup :  Backup schedule is set every day with a 8 weeks retention time for “DATA” share. www.open-e.com 2
  • Backup to iSCSI Target Volume over a LAN  Recommended Resources • Hardware (two systems requires):  x86 compatible  RAID Controller  HDD‘s  Network Interface Cards • Software  Two Open-E DSS V6  Backup functions are built in the Open-E DSS V6 (without additional requirements of hardware)  Benefits • Data Redundancy over a LAN • Local data availability  Disadvantages • Natural disasters can destroy both machines www.open-e.com 3
  • Backup to iSCSI Target Volume over a LANTO SET UP BACKUP TO ISCSI TARGET VOLUME OVER A LAN,PERFORM THE FOLLOWING STEPS:1. Hardware configuration2. Configure Destination Node: • Create a Volume Group, iSCSI volume and target on the DSS2,3. Connecting iSCSI target Volume using iSCSI Initiator • On DSS 1, connect iSCSI target Volume from DSS2 using iSCSI Initiator on DSS14. Configure the Local Backup (on Source Node) • Create a Volume Groups (vg00 and vg01), on DSS1 • Create NAS volume and snapshot, • Enable Local backup function • Create Backup Task with Shedule5. Create the Restore from Backup www.open-e.com 4
