Cluster Recovery Points

From the menu bar, go to Protection > Recovery Points in the Clusters section. In the Recovery Points page for clusters, you can see a paginated list of all valid recovery points to restore your cluster objects.

Typically, you will see many recovery points if you have regularly back up your cluster objects for a long period. In the Recovery Points page for clusters, you can search recovery points for a job name. Or, you can filter the backup type within “Snapshot” or “Copy”, and you can filter the recovery points with the start time or a number of persistent volumes (PVs).

In the paginated list of recovery points for clusters, you can sort the items by job names, cluster names, start times of the backup job, the number of PVs, the expiration period or date and time, the backup sizes, and backup types.

Available operations in the Recovery Points page for clusters

For each recovery point item for clusters, you can make some operations:

Extending the retention period of a recovery point with SafeLock

Click SafeLock to add days to retain the recovery point with SafeLock. For example, assume that you create a recovery point with SafeLock on January 1, 2023, and the retention period is set to 10 days. On January 9, you extend the retention period by 10 days so that the recovery point will be purged on January 20 instead of January 10. Because SafeLock is enabled with this recovery point, you cannot delete it until the expiration day nor can you shorten the retention period. For more information about SafeLock, see SafeLock.

Running a restore job manually

Click Restore and you can restore you cluster from the recovery point by running a restore job with it. For more information about restore jobs for clusters, see Cluster Restores

Removing a recovery point manually

Click Remove and you can manually remove the recovery point without SafeLock even before the expiration date and time. You cannot remove restore points with SafeLock until they expire.
