Frequently Asked Questions

You need to update Migration Plans every time you change you original infrastructure to have the same environment on a target side.

Groups are necessary for logical combination of machines. Association principles can be different: general purpose of machines, geographical location, general rules for storing snapshots and replication schedule. Particularly important and convenient groups feature is the ability to manage common parameters of replication schedule and snapshot storage rules at a time, that significantly simplifies flexible configuration of business application replication.

On customer side just install and run replication agents on each ESXi host in VMware vSphere installation or agents of guest Windows and Linux operating systems. Each VMware agent will be responsible for replicating machines on its host, which will allow to optimize and make replication process more reliable. The agent is downloaded through replication wizard of Acura Control Panel, where the agent type, replication group and the settings to access VMware vSphere are specified.

Enable debug logs, start a new replication, check the logs with the detailed description of an issue. Try to fix the problem yourself if possible. Contact the support service if any additional help is required.

The system supports flexible roles management and accessible actions within them, contact solution administrator to create a role with necessary access parameters and add users to it. Detailed overview of the functionality can be found in the section ACP – Settings – Role Management.

Settings for schedules and snapshot storage policies can be carried out for all machines as well as for individual groups and individual machines. Detailed overview of the functionality can be found in the section ACP – Machine groups – Managing replication schedule and snapshot storage policies.

Retention policies give the ability to set the amount of time before restore points, stored in the target cloud, are automatically deleted. Retention job runs as soon as a new replication takes place and uses UTC time to clean up the data. It is possible to edit retention policies on the level of separate machines, group or general settings.


If you want to edit the settings of separate machines, then to edit settings click ‘Edit retention policies’ in the menu ‘Actions’.


If you want to edit the settings of machines group, then to edit settings click ‘Edit retention policies’ in the menu of separate groups.

During the initial configuration Acura checks an ability to work with the target cloud – creates Hystax Cloud Agent, with the help of which the data will be transferred to the cloud, and a test volume, so all the procedure takes some time.

Check events in Acura Control Panel with the detailed description of an issue. Try to fix the problem yourself if possible, if not, contact the support service.

Device overlays can be used to set custom volume type. The settings must be updated before the replication begins. Go to the Customer page, click on ‘…’ button (opposite the machine name), click ‘Edit Replication Settings’ and specify required volume type in the appropriate field.

During the creation of Migration Plan, it is possible to configure networks after adding a machine. Insert a static IP for the machine to the field ‘Port IP’

In the preparation of the Migration Plan, just add one parameter ‘availability_zone’:’name’ and enter the desired value there.
