ReadyDR: Recovering data from a ReadyDR share

Failback

Failback means recovering a ReadyDR share back to the original production unit. In order to restore data from a ReadyDR share to a ReadyNAS (likely the same ReadyNAS that originally sent the data), create a new ReadyDR job to send the ReadyDR share back to the original production unit (as a new ReadyDR share), then clone the necessary snapshot and reconfigure the share settings. Afterwards, you can delete the ReadyDR share on the original production unit for additional storage space.

Failover

Failover means cloning a snapshot of the ReadyDR share on the backup ReadyNAS and redirecting traffic from production to the backup ReadyNAS. This requires additional configuration changes since all traffic that was originally destined for the production ReadyNAS doesn't currently go to the the backup ReadyNAS. If the production unit is offline, you could change the IP address on the backup unit to match the production units' address. This method will also require reconfiguring the share's network level permissions.
