Adding File Server

Before you add a Windows- or Linux-managed server as a file server to the inventory of the virtual infrastructure, consider the following:

  • This server must meet requirements listed in the Platform Support section.
  • You must have this server added in Backup Infrastructure.

For more information on how to add servers, see the Adding Microsoft Windows Servers and Adding Linux Servers section.

  • If you plan to use a dedicated cache repository, make sure it is added in Backup Infrastructure.
  • Data from managed servers is transferred directly to the repository without a proxy server.

To add a managed Windows or Linux server as a source of unstructured data, do the following:

  1. Launch the New File Server wizard.
  2. Add the managed server as a file server.
  3. Specify file server processing settings.
  4. Review the components to be installed.
  5. Apply file server settings.
  6. Finish working with the wizard.
