Getting Started with the File Discovery Solution

This topic describes the high-level steps that first-time users must follow to set up the file discovery in the Command Center.

Step 1: Install the Commvault Software

  • The Index Server is automatically installed on your CommCell environment. Enable the Data Analytics role on your Index Server.
  • Install the File System Agent package and the MediaAgent package on your share access node. Share access node is a computer that has access to the network shares and is used for live scan and archive operations.

    For NFS share, you must have an UNIX MediaAgent that has the NFS share mounted on it.

Step 2: Log on to the Command Center

Access the Command Center by using the URL that was displayed on the installation completion page, or that you received from your backup administrator.

From the navigation panel, click Solutions > Archiving.

Step 3: Complete the Core Setup Wizard

Configure core information by completing the Core Setup Wizard.

Step 4: Complete the File Server Setup Wizard

Configure the file server setup application by completing the Setup Wizard for Adding File Servers.

Step 5: Review the Dashboard Report

Tune the archiving rules as per your requirement.

After you complete analyzing your content, you can choose to archive the data on the file server. For more information, see Getting Started with the Archiver Solution.
