Option

Description

Snapshots kept

The number of CVD snapshots the system must keep available for restoration, at hour, day, week, and month intervals. For more information about how these values are used in snapshot retention.

Volumes

This section configures the threshold percentages of data stored on a volume, which when reached, trigger a warning

This section configures the threshold percentages of data stored on a volume, which when reached, trigger a warning or critical events in the Events log.

  • Volume capacity - warning threshold (%): Type the threshold percentage of data stored on a volume, which triggers a warning event when reached.

  • Volume capacity - critical threshold (%): Type the threshold percentage of data stored on a volume, which triggers a critical event when reached.

  • Volume capacity check interval (seconds): Type the elapsed time interval (in seconds) at which the system rechecks the level of data stored on the volume against the thresholds.

  • Driver Library and USMT files volume: To select the volume to be addressed by the threshold checks, click Change and select the required volume.

CVDs

  • CVD size warning threshold (MB): Type the maximum CVD size. An event is generated in the Event Log when that size is reached.

  • Default Upload Policy: To choose the default upload policy used when an end user adds their CVD to the Mirage system, click Change and select the required policy.

Join Domain Account

User and Password: Account that authorizes joining the domain. The join domain account is used during migration operations. Note: The join domain account must have the following permissions - Reset Password, Write all properties, Delete, Create computer objects, and Delete computer objects. Permissions are set using the Advanced Security Settings for Computers dialog box for this object and all descendant objects.

Bandwidth Limiting

You can set an upper limit on Mirage traffic so that Mirage does not consume all of the bandwidth of a site or subnet. When you use bandwidth limitation, you allocate your network resources more efficiently. A bandwidth limitation rule contains parameters to set the limitations.

You can import rules, export rules, and view sample rules, and create new rules by specifying several parameters. See Managing Bandwidth Limitation Rules.

License

You can specify a license key or a license file, and view license information.
