Getting Started with the MongoDB Agent

Step 1: Review the System Requirements

Review the requirements for the MongoDB Agent. For more information, see System Requirements.

Step 2: Install the MongoDB Agent

You must install the MongoDB agent on all the MongoDB servers.

The MongoDB package is dependent on the IntelliSnap package, which is, in turn, dependent on the MediaAgent package. Therefore, all the dependent packages are installed as part of the MongoDB agent installation. The MediaAgent package does not consume a license.

Step 3: Prepare the CommCell Environment

  1. Open the CommCell Console.

  2. Configure a storage device.

  3. Add a MongoDB client. For information, see Creating a MongoDB Client.

  4. Add a subclient. For more information, see Creating a MongoDB Subclient.

  5. Configure a snapshot backup copy.

Step 4: Run the First Backup Operation and Restore Operation
