NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers reliable, fast, and affordable VM data protection for VMware environments.To protect the VM’s on the VMware vSphere environment using NAKIVO, You need to attach the vCenter server to NAKIVO Director.There are two type of components involved in NAKIVO Backup & Replication.1. Transporter 2. Director . Multiple transporters can be controlled by single director. There are two type of transporters. 1.Target Transporters(Close to Director) 2.Source Transporter (Close to VM). If both Source VM Host and Backup Repository / Target Host are close to each other and have a good connection (e.g. Gigabyte Links), you do not need two Transporters and can simply use the one that comes in the default product installation. The Director can be installed everywhere you want, but for better reliability, it is recommended to install it on the target site.
In our setup, we are not using the multiple transporters. The appliance which we have configured will act as Director/Transporters. Here we will see how we can attach the vCenter Server to NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
1. Login to NAKIVO web interface.
2.Click on Add New Server.Enter the VMware vCenter Server and credentials
