  • 1. Step-by-Step Guide to Asynchronous Data (File) Replication (File Based) over a LAN Supported by Open-E ® DSS V6Software Version: DSS ver. 6.00 up85Presentation updated: September 2011
  • 2. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Replication Source/Destination Data Transfer Volume Type Mode Asynchronous Synchronous iSCSI Block based File based w/ System WAN NAS LAN Block-IO FC File-IOAsynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN  ASYNCHRONOUS DATA (FILE) REPLICATION over a LAN enables asynchronous file and folder copy from one storage system to another over Local Area Network: • With asynchronous replication a point-in-time – snapshot copy of data on the source is made and copied to the target storage system. www.open-e.com 2
  • 3. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LANREPLICATION BETWEEN TWO SYSTEMS WITHIN ONE LAN  Recommended Resources • Key Hardware (two systems)  x86 compatible,  RAID Controller,  HDD„s,  Network Interface Cards. • Software  Open-E DSS V6, 2 units.  Benefits • Data Redundancy over a LAN, • Enables continuous data access.  Disadvantages • High cost of solution, • Natural disasters can destroy local systems. www.open-e.com 3
  • 4. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN • Data is written and read to System 1 • Data is continiously replicated to System 2 Data (File) Replication RAID System 1 Primary RAID System 2 Secondary Write Data Read Data www.open-e.com 4
  • 5. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN • In case of raid array error or disk drive error on the System 1, the server will send an e-mail notification to the administrator, • In the case of a failure of system 1, users will be notified, • Administrator then switches users to the System 2.

  • 6. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN • After switching, replicated data is available on System 2 X RAID System 1 Primary RAID System 2 Secondary Write Data Read Data www.open-e.com 6
  • 7. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN TO SET UP DATA (FILE) REPLICATION, PERFORM THE FOLLOWING STEPS: 1. Configure Hardware 2. Configure the destination node 3. Configure the source node 4. Configure schedule replication 5. Check the status of Data (File) Replication www.open-e.com 7
  • 8. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN 1. Configure Hardware Hardware Requirements To run the Data (File) Replication on Open-E DSS V6 over LAN, a minimum of two systems are required. Logical volumes working on source node must have snapshots created and enabled. Both servers are working in the Local Area Network. An example configuration is shown below: Data Server (DSS1) Data Server (DSS2) Source node Destination node IP Address: 192.168.0.220 IP Address: 192.168.0.221 RAID System 1 RAID System 2 Primary Secondary Volume Groups (vg00) Volume Groups (vg00) Snapshot NAS volume (lv0000) NAS volume (lv0000) Shares: Copy of Data Shares: Data Data (File) Replication www.open-e.com 8
  • 9. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221Under the „CONFIGURATION”menu, select „volumemanager” and „Vol. groups.Volume Groups (vg00)Add the selected physical units(Unit S000) to create a newvolume group (in this case,vg00) and click apply button. www.open-e.com 9
  • 10. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221Volume Groups (vg00)NAS volume (lv0000)Select the appropriate volumegroup (vg00) from the list onthe left and create a new NASvolume of the required size.This logical volume will be thedestination of the replicationprocess.After assigning an appropriateamount of space for the NASvolume, click the apply button www.open-e.com 10
  • 11. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221Volume Groups (vg00)The destination NAS Volume isnow configured. NAS volume (lv0000) www.open-e.com 11
  • 12. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221Under the „CONFIGURATION”menu, select „NAS settings” Data (File) ReplicationIn the Data (file) replicationagent function, check theEnable data (file) replicationagent box, and click the applybutton. www.open-e.com 12
  • 13. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221Under the „CONFIGURATION”menu, select „NAS resources”and „Shares”.Shares: Copy of DataA tree listing of NAS sharedvolumes (Shares) will appearon the left side of the DSSconsole. In the example, ashared volume named Copy ofData on lv0000 has beencreated. www.open-e.com 13
  • 14. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication over a LAN Data Server (DSS2) Destination node 2. Configure the Destination Node IP Address: 192.168.0.221 After creating the new shared volume, click on the share name, check the box Use data (file) replication within Data (file) replication agent settings function and click on the apply button. Data (File) ReplicationNOTE:It is strongly recommended protecting thereplication protocol with a user name andpassword, along with a list of allowed IPaddress. This will prevent other Data (file)replication tasks from accessing this share. The configuration of theDestination Node (storage server) is now complete. www.open-e.com 14
