Getting Started with PostgreSQL

Review each of the topics to get started with PostgreSQL

Step 1: Install the Commvault Package

If your backup administrator has not already installed the Commvault package, then you must install it.

For more information, see Installing the Commvault Package.

Step 2: Obtain Your User Credentials and Database Protection Information

Obtain the following information from your backup administrator:

  • The Command Center URL

  • Your Command Center user credentials

Step 3: 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 > Databases > DB Instances.

Step 4: Register the Command Center

If you have not done so, register your Command Center.

Step 5: Complete the Core Setup Wizard

Configure core information by completing the Core Setup Wizard.

Step 6: Complete the Database Application Setup Wizard

Configure the Database application by completing the DB Instances Setup Wizard.

For information on the supported PostgreSQL versions, see PostgreSQL Agent: System Requirements.

Step 7: Prepare for Your First Backup and Restore

  1. Create a server plan.

    The plan defines how often the software backs up the database and the log files and where it stores the backups.

  2. If you have not already done so, add a PostgreSQL instance.

  3. Configure a database subclient.

  4. Determine the alerts that you want the software to trigger.

    For information on how to configure alerts, see Creating an Alert Definition.

Step 8: Perform Your First Backup and Restore

  1. Perform a full backup.

  2. Perform an entire database restore.

Step 9: What to Do Next

Create additional subclients for content that you need to protect on a separate schedule.
