Adding a MediaAgent to an Existing Cloud Storage

You can add a new MediaAgent to control the cloud storage library. You can add more MediaAgents for GridStor settings or restore purposes. In a Cloud Storage setup, you can add a MediaAgent from a geographically different area than the one from which the backup is run, and restore the data to that MediaAgent.

  2. Right-click the mount path that you want to share with another MediaAgent, and click Share Mount Path.

  3. Select the mount path and click Share.

  4. From the Share Mount Path dialog box, perform the following:

    1. Select the MediaAgent you want to share and assign Access.

    2. Click OK.

  5. Click Ok to confirm your selection.
