Configuration - 1-Touch for Solaris

Basic Configuration

Applies to: 1-Touch for Solaris 10, 1-Touch for Solaris 11

Enable 1-Touch

After you install the File System iDataAgent, follow the steps given below to enable 1-Touch for the default subclient:

  1. From the CommCell Console, navigate to <Client> | File System iDataAgent | defaultBackupSet.

    Right-click the default subclient and then click Properties.


    Do not modify the names of the default backup set and the default subclient later.


  2. In the Subclient Properties dialog box, click Advanced.

    The Advanced Subclient Properties dialog box appears.

  3. Click the 1-Touch Recovery tab.

    Select the 1-Touch Recovery check box.

    Select the 1-Touch Server from the 1-Touch Server list.

    Enter the 1-Touch server directory path in the 1-Touch server directory box.


    • For 1-Touch for Solaris 11, enter /rpool/CommVaultRecovery/Server.

    • 1-Touch recovery of Solaris 11.2 and 11.3 clients require Solaris 11.2 and 11.3 boot servers respectively.

    Click OK.



If the client host ID (MAC address) has changed since the most recent 1-Touch backup, be sure to update the client's Ethernet address in the /etc/ethers file on the 1-Touch server. Otherwise, you will not be able to boot the client.

Perform a Backup

After you enable 1-Touch, perform backups of the default subclient periodically to capture any changes in the client system configuration. Before recovering a client, ensure that you have run at least one full backup of the default subclient.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | File System | defaultBackupSet.

    Right-click the default subclient and click Backup.


  2. Click Full as backup type and then click Immediate.

    Click OK.


  3. You can track the progress of the backup job from the Job Controller window.
