Alternatively, you can enter the Host Name or IP Address of the Alternate Host. The Host must be running the Netcetera CDP Agent and be configured to accept requests from the CDP Server.
    If the Alternate Host is specified using the text field, the Host's CDP Agent of the Host must be in Disaster Recovery Mode..
