To get started with the MediaAgent, review the following features and configuration information.

On a Solaris MediaAgent, the ACSLS Client Service must be configured before configuring the STK library attached to an ACSLS Server.

To configure a STK library that is controlled by an ACSLS server, you can use the Config ACSLS Services package to add the required services, as follows:

  1. Log on to the MediaAgent computer as root.

  2. Start the following program:

     Your selection: [2]
  3. Type 1, and then press Enter.

    The following message appears:

    Please enter the name of the host running the ACSLS daemon. ACSLS Server host name:
  4. Enter the name of the host where the ACSLS server is installed, and then press Enter.

    The system copies the necessary files and creates the required configuration. The following message appears:

    A menu appears.

  5. Enter the number that corresponds with Exit.

Use the commvault list command to check if the SSI service is running on the Solaris computer. See Controlling Services on UNIX Clients.
