At the top of the Dashboard is a horizontal menu bar. Mouse-over 'Manage' then select 'Appliances.'

3. Select "browse/recover" under the Primary or Secondary Appliance you'd like to access

The left side of the screen will show all connected Primary Appliances.

The right side of the screen will show all connected Secondary or Cloud Replicated Appliances.

Select "Browse/Recover" under the appliance you'd like to access and you'll be logged into the respective management console.

Primary vs Secondary Appliances - What's the difference?

The dr2cloud Appliances can be setup to work as pairs for additional redundancy and recovery options.

Most of your setup and management will be performed on the Primary Appliance and the Secondary Appliance is used for Cloudboot or Recovery back to your Primary.

The Primary Appliance is what is setup to protect devices on a particular network.
