Adding Backup Repositories with Rotated Drives

To add a backup repository with rotated drives:

  1. Attach one of external drives from the set to a Microsoft Windows or Linux server. The server must be added to the backup infrastructure. For more information on how to add a server, see Virtualization Servers and Hosts.

You can also attach the external hard drive to the backup server itself. In this case, the VM traffic will path through the backup server, which will produce additional workload on it.

  1. Launch the Add New Backup Repository wizard.
  2. At the Server step of the wizard, select the server to which the drive is attached.
