Introduction

The Orchestration subtab allows to configure bootable backups to be a push-button failover to the Infrascale cloud.

Orchestration scenario is built using the following three components:

Component name Component description
Group Allows to create a group of devices. All devices in the group are booted simultaneously
Wait Allows to set a time delay (in seconds) between the booted VMs or groups.
This can be useful to make sure your AD server starts before your Exchange server
Devices List of all available VMs that can be included in the scenario

To add a component to the scenario, drag and drop it to the configuration area on the right.

To rename a Group, click the pencil icon, enter the desired Group name, and then click Apply.

To edit a Wait value, click the pencil icon, enter the desired value in seconds, and then click Apply.

To remove a Group or a Wait from the scenario, click X.

To remove a client from the scenario, hover over the client, click the three dots, and then click Remove from Orchestration.

Special actions

All special actions on the Orchestration subtab are available via the toolbar.

Action name Action description
Save the current orchestration configuration
Start the current orchestration process
Configure DR LAN used by orchestration to set the subnet, in which the VMs will run

Configuring DR LAN

With DR LAN you are able to set whether or not your VMs are able to have access outside the Infrascale cloud. You are also able to specify the subnet mask and the default gateway.

Enable DHCP and IP Restore will attempt to boot the VM with the MAC address it was up with and restore a static IP. If the client was backed up with a DHCP address, it will assign the boot with an address inside the DHCP range.

info Changes to the DR LAN settings will cause the VPN connection to Infrascale cloud to not work properly. Please contact Infrascale Support to have the VPN settings updated in the cloud.

To test the orchestration configuration, click Run.

You can check the status of the booted VMs on the Active subtab.
