Reconfigure IP instructions for ReliableDR's Unitrends Backup Jobs

SUMMARY

Reconfigure IP for backep up VMs in ReliableDR 4.x versions

ISSUE

In Unitrends Backup jobs, the VMs are backed up, so it is not possible to retrieve the IP configuration from the original VM (network interfaces and IPs).

 

Instead, ReliableDR can retrieve the network configuration from a VM created from a backup for a Test/Failover to CRP operation.  To set up the reconfigure IP option, you must run the job as a Test/Failover to CRP, and pause the job just after the IR operation.  At that point, the VM is powered on, and ReliableDR can load the network configuration to make the desired changes.  Those changes will be applied on subsequent executions.
