Adding Managed Server File Share

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

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

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

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

To add a managed Windows or Linux server as a file share:

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