Purpose

This article documents how to start an individual VM that has failed SureBackup validation in "Troubleshooting mode."

Solution

Troubleshooting Mode causes the selected VM in the SureBackup job to be powered on and remains on, despite possible test failures. This can be very useful for diagnosing internal connectivity issues in the lab and inspecting the appropriate values for Maximum allowed boot time and Application initialization timeout.

Note:

  • Troubleshooting mode will force the selected VM and Application Group to remain Powered ON until the user clicks "Stop Session."
  •  If the application group has already been powered off when troubleshooting mode is initiated, it will be started again.
  • Troubleshooting mode can be initiated while the routine job is running or after it has been completed.
  • If Troubleshooting mode is initiated while the job is running, the Warning message "Session switched to troubleshooting mode" will be shown. After the job processes all other VMs, the job will then enter troubleshooting mode for the selected VM.

Initiating Troubleshooting Mode

  2. Right-click on the VM with a Failed status that you wish to troubleshoot, and click Start.
