You can reconnect a device that has lost its synchronization for any reason to its CVD. After the Force Upload operation, you can then continue backing up incremental changes as before.

About this task

You can connect an Assignment Pending device to an existing CVD and upload the current device data to the CVD through a Force Upload process.

Procedure

  1. In the Mirage Web Management click the Pending Devices tab and select the CVD for which you want to force an upload.
  2. Click Force Upload.
  3. In the Mirage Management console, expand the Inventory node and select Pending Devices.
  4. Select the device, right-click and select Force Upload.

Results

The device then synchronizes all its data to the CVD. Local client changes take precedence (“win”) over CVD changes.
