How to upload a backup to an iSCSI resource?
GitProtect allows you to save a backup of your repositories on an iSCSI resource. To do this, install the client application on the device to which the iSCSI resource has been mounted. Then, in the GitProtect system, create a local storage and assign it to backup plans. Below is a detailed step-by-step instruction on how to do this.
Mounting the iSCSI resource on the example of Windows 10
Find and run the iSCSI Initiator.
Enter the IP address of the device where the iSCSI resource resides in the Targets tab > the Target field, then click Quick Connect.
The iSCSI Initiator searches for available iSCSI targets and adds them to the Discovered Targets list.
The target's status changes to Connected.
Go to the Computer Management window.
Go to the Disk Management section.
Look for a new disk in the list and then initialize it.
Downloading the client application
Log in to your GitProtect account, and then in the Devices tab, click the Add device button.
In the displayed aside select the installation file corresponding to the operating system of the device to which the iSCSI resource has been mounted. For instructions on installing the client application, see the article: Agent Installation.
Create a local storage
Go to the Storages tab, and then select the Add storage button. In the form that appears, enter the local path for the iSCSI resource.
Defining a backup plan with the selected worker
Go to the Plans tab, then open the plan editing form. In the 'Data to be secured' section, select the Edit button.
Scroll to the bottom of the list and then click the Change button for the Worker.
Select the device to which the iSCSI storage has been attached, and then save the changes.
Defining a backup plan with the selected storage
Go to the Plans tab, then open the plan editing form. In the Backup storage section, click the Edit button.
