Procedures to DR Test different data sets independently

Home


Copy into 3 separate DR testing Access Zones with 3 separate policies

  1. Create a policy with the required policy prefix name and name for application test scenario (example add -name of app or -shares).
  2. NOTE: ensure the path includes shares and exports required for testing):
  3. The target path can be any path depth below the base Access Zone path and allows moving the data to a different path than exists in production (example /ifs/data/dr-testing/applications/shares/application1).

Note: Each policy target path must be a different Access Zone.

  1. Run policies to sync data, and set sync schedule as normal on SyncIQ policies to match your sync requirements, and to maintain a full copy .
  2. Enable the DR Test mode policies in the Eyeglass jobs window after they have been discovered.
  3. Run the job with bulk actions run now option.
  4. Verify the configuration data is created in the DR Test Access Zone.
  5. Open DR Assistant, DR Testing tab.
  6. Select one or more policies to enable for DR Test mode in a writeable file system.

Copy data set  into 1 DR Testing Access Zone From 3 separate policies

  1. Create 3 separate policies with the required policy prefix name and a name for application test scenario. For example: Eyeglass-DR-Testing-1, Eyeglass-DR-Testing-2 and Eyeglass-DR-Testing-3.
  2. Create each policy to select a source path that matches the target application within its own Access Zone base path. Each policy source path should be within an individual Access Zone. (Note: ensure the path includes shares and exports required for testing).
  3. Create target path inside the target test Access Zone created for DR Testing.
  4. The target path can be any path depth below the base Access Zone path and allows moving the data to a different path than exists in production (example /ifs/data/dr-testing/applications/shares/application1).
    1. Note: Each policy target path must be the same Access Zone.
  5. Run policies to sync data and set sync schedule as normal on SyncIQ policies to match your sync requirements and to maintain a full copy up to date.
  6. Enable the DR Test mode policies in the Eyeglass jobs window after they have been discovered.
  7. Run the job with bulk actions Run Now option.
  8. Verify the configuration data is created in the DR test Access Zone.
  9. Open DR Assistant, DR Testing tab.
  10. Select one or more policies to enable for DR Test mode in a writeable file system.
