iDataAgent/Agent Type

  • Backup from replica

    Specifies whether to back up the database from a CCR replica using VSS shadow copy. When selected, backups performed for all subclients on this agent will use VSS to back up the replica database.

  • Backup on active node if passive node is unavailable

    Specifies whether to back up the database from the active node of a CCR cluster using VSS shadow copy, in cases where the passive node is not available (for example, failover will cause the passive node to become the active node, after which the passive node is unavailable). When selected, backups performed for all subclients on this agent will use VSS to back up the database from the active node of a CCR cluster when the passive node is not available.
