Recovery Simulator suite installation

When you have chosen Recovery Simulator as a valuable add-on to your BMR solution, you can install it on to your machine. Run the set up wizard and you will see this welcome screen.

Quick start guide

From the installer you can access the quick start guide and also the Readme which will show you the latest product release notes. Recovery Simulator is intuitive to use but (for those who wish to refer to documentation for clarification and planning) such resources are readily available.

Configuration wizard

When Recovery Simulator is launched you will see the configuration wizard. From here first select the product that you want Recovery Simulator to assure, including TBMR, NBMR, ABMR, SBMR and TSM for VE.

Tokens

Enter the token code that you receive from Cristie.

Select hypervisor

Select your relevant hypervisor from the list, which includes virtual and public cloud platforms, to which you wish to create your assurance environment.

Create schedule

Select the time and frequency that you would like the recovery simulation to run. This enables you to automatically run the simulation at a time that is most convenient to you.

Add schedule details

Select the configuration details of the recovery source (which automatically adjust based on the products being assured). You can restore from the latest protect or from a point in time, for maximum flexibility. Advanced options enable you to configure target VM options such as RAM & CPU, disks & sizes, Hostname & IP and post restore scripts. These settings enable you to tailor the recovery environment, including placing the target machine in an isolated test area for further interrogation without impact on your live systems.

Recovery simulation status

The recovery status screen will give you up-to-date information on the recovery progress. You can halt the recovery simulation at any point. Once the simulation is complete you can view the post-recovery details including post-recovery check information. The post-recovery checks verify the integrity of your system by running check disk, searching the Windows event log for errors, and running xBMRcfg.

Email reporting

You can configure the recovery simulation to email you or multiple contacts, informing you if your recovery simulation was successful or unsuccessful. If unsuccessful it will tell you why and email you log files so you can take informed remedial action. When combined with the scheduling features, Recovery Simulator really is a “set and forget” facility that informs you when you when needed, in a timely manner.

Recover Now

Another powerful feature of Recovery Simulator is the ability to initiate an immediate recovery at no charge. As with scheduling, you simply select the source and target then run it on demand.

Recover Now status

The Recover Now status screen will give you more information on the recovery assurance progress – for example, ‘Creating VM’; like a scheduled recovery it can be halted at any point if you choose.
