Pair Disaster Recovery backup agent for Windows with Cloud Failover Appliance

On this page

Initial pairing

After the backup agent is installed, it gets into the Waiting for pairing state, and waits 24 hours to receive the settings (password and TCP port) from the Cloud Failover Appliance (CFA) to establish connection.

To establish connection between the DR backup agent and the CFA, in the CFA Management Console:

  1. Create a configuration for the client you want to back up.

  2. In the newly created client configuration, click Push Client Settings in the General group.

The backup agent on the client will receive the settings from the CFA and get into the Paired state.

Change pairing

To pair the client with another CFA:

  1. On the client you want to pair, run the backup agent.

  2. Expand settings, and then click Disconnect from Appliance.

  3. In the open dialog box, click Disconnect.

    The backup agent will get into the Waiting for pairing state.

  4. In the Management Console of the CFA you want to pair with, add a new client, and then push client settings.
