Adding consistency groups

A consistency group is a group of one or more replica sets that can be backed up together and recovered together as a unit or a set. Consistency groups can include both local and remote replica copies, and usually include as many replication sets as there are volumes in the production storage to replicate.

To add a consistency group:

  1. In the left pane of the ESI window, select a replication service.

  2. Click Consistency Groups.

  3. From the Actions pane, click Add Consistency Group.

The Add Consistency Group wizard appears.

    1. In the Consistency Group page, type a name for the new consistency group.

    2. In the Review Input Parameters page, review the settings, and then click Next to confirm them.

    3. In the Progress page, click Next.

Note: Click More Information for more progress details. If a problem occurs, an error message appears with options to resume or roll back the process. After the error is resolved, click Resume to resume the process. Click Rollback to revert to the previously executed step.

  1. In the Summary page, click Finish.

    You can click Consistency Groups in the center pane to view details for the new consistency group.
