Configure Nakivo Backup & Replication Transporter

In this post, we will talk about how to configure Nakivo Backup & Replication Transporter. The Transporter is the product component that does all of the heavy-lifting: it performs backup, replication, and recovery, as well as data compression, deduplication, and encryption. The transporter is also responsible for backup repository. Each backup repository must have an assigned transporter.After you have installed a Transporter, you need to add it the product so the Transporter can be used for backup, replication, and recovery tasks.

  1. Login to Nakivo Backup & Replication web console.  Click Configuration in the upper right corner of the product.

Go to the Transporters tab and click Add Transporter to add existing transporter. Fill out the fields as described below:

  • Transporter type: choose Local/Offsite from the drop-down list
  • Hostname or IP: Specify the IP or hostname of the machine where the Transporter is installed.

NOTE: If you are adding the Transporter by a DNS name, make sure this DNS name can be resolved on the machines where the Director and any other Transporters (which you plan to use in conjunction with the current one) are installed.

  • Transporter name: Specify a display name for the Transporter.
  • Port: Specify the port number that will be used to connect to the Transporter.
  • Data transfer ports: Specify a range of port numbers (from 1 to 65535) that will be used to transfer data. The range you specify should contain at least 100 ports. Make sure that the ports you specify are open in your firewall.
  • Maximum load: Specify the maximum number of tasks that the Transporter should process simultaneously. A task, for example, is a backup or replication of a single VM disk, or one granular recovery session.
  • Enable debug logging for this Transporter: Enables debug level logging for the current transporter. It is not recommended to use this option on a permanent basis.
