Adding Managed Server File Share

In this article

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

    • This server must meet requirements listed in 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.
