Adding a Configuration Replication Plan

Use this type of plan to replicate the configuration settings of one appliance to compatible appliances.

Each Deep Discovery product supports the replication of a different combination of configuration settings. For details, see the following:

  1. Go to Appliances > Plans and click on Add.

    The Add Plan screen appears.

  2. Type a plan name with a maximum of 256 characters.
  3. Select Configuration replication as type.
  4. (Optional) Type a description.
  5. Select the replication source from the list.

    Select a product from the View drop-down list to only display the selected product's appliances.

  6. Select target appliances. Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode) only displays compatible appliances.
  7. Specify the schedule.
    • Custom: Deploys the plan, downloads the files, and executes the plan as specified.

      • Deployment start: Date at which this plan will be deployed.


        Plans are always deployed at 12:00 am (00:00) of the selected date.

      • Download period: Period during which appliances are allowed to download the files required to execute the plan.

        • If the download period is set from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am, appliances will start downloading files around 12:00 am immediately after the plan is deployed, not at 8:00 pm the following day.

        • Setting the download period from 8:00 pm to 11:59 pm (or increase the margin) prevents the appliances from downloading files around 12:00 am immediately after the plan is deployed.

      • Execution start: Date and time at which this plan will be executed.


        Select By schedule to prevent the plan from executing at an unexpected time.

    • Immediate: Starts immediately after the plan is saved.

  8. Click Save.
