NOTES

Note: You can check how many resources your appliance has by clicking on the (?) button and then "About"

Note: Replicas will begin in the "new" mode, will move to "restore" mode, during which time you can check the progress of the restore under Jobs > Active Jobs, and then remain in idle mode until new backups need to be restored into the replica or you click Go Live, Audit, or Tear Down.
