Re: RP4VM Sample Re-IP scripts

Hi Rich,

Thanks for the video. I will try on RHEL VM like the video on my old RPA configuration.

However some video seems to be no so accurate when i try to install new set of RPA cluster :

Example for 4.3.1 deployment demo :

2016-04-19_15h28_10.png

In real world deployment :

2016-04-19_15h32_49.png

I have try different release :

4.3.SP1.P1_h.192

4.3.SP1_h.152

In all case same behaviour regarding IP settings and cannot perform the cluster installation because of this problem :

Failed to retrieve datastores:, Bad Request ,could not create proxy for rpa RPA(ip=10.10.70.203...

Have you any hint regarding this error (Pre-deployment Validation Results are OK) ?

Hi Julian,

As for the error you're getting, please make sure that vRPA1 and 2 are both accessible as this pre-validation checks connectivity between all vRPAs to vCenter and the shared datastores they are seeing in order to list candidate datastores for the repository.

As for Re-IP, soon we would publish an updated revision of the admin guide which would include clarifications and explanation on the Re-IP process.

Regards,

Hi,

If you have no warning during checkup process then :

First don't care of warning for Recoverpoint cluster IP.

Do not put your temporary RPA1 IP.

Then take care if you have clone your first RPA for 2nd RPA deployment in my case temporary IP was not set...

Hi Rich,

I have try different settings and still have some issue. I probably miss something regarding this point :

Applying a new network configuration in Windows

An example of how to manage your network configurations in Windows 2008 and 2012.

Procedure

1. Download the relevant glue script from the RecoverPoint for VMs page on the EMC ECN

network.

On the production VM, add the glue script to the registry by creating a key called IP in

the registry path and adding the full path of the script. For example:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\

3. Navigate to Protection > Consistency Groups, expand the desired consistency group,

and select the relevant copy.

4. Click the Edit Copy Network Configuration icon and click Save as… to export the

current network configuration to a CSV file.

I have set the following registry key :

Is there something misconfigured ??

After creating the registry entry and copying over the script - did you create a Windows scheduled task? That is needed in some cases and I had to do that for mine to work after I copied over the script, made the registry entry, and edited the CG variables.

In task scheduler you can do the following so that it does it on the first boot during a test/failover (screenshots are from a test a while back....but I haven't touched much so they should still work):
