Adding an Additional OpenVMS Server

You can add an additional OpenVMS server to your Commvault solution to replace an existing server or to help reduce the load on existing servers.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > File Servers.

    The File Servers page appears.

  2. In the upper-right of the page, click Add server.

    The Add server dialog box appears.

  3. Click OpenVMS.

    The Add OpenVMS server dialog box appears.

  4. In the Server name box, type the server name.

  5. In the Host name box, type the host name.

  6. In the Base install folder box, type the location for software installation.

    All Commvault programs, configuration files, and logs are stored under the software installation directory by default.


    Provide UNIX-style path to the location. For example, /SYS$SYSDEVICE/SOFTWARE/ is the UNIX-style path equivalent to SYS$SYSDEVICE:[DEVICE].

  7. In the CVD port box, type or select the CVD port number.

  8. In the OpenVMS user credentials area, complete the following steps:

    1. In the User name and Password boxes, type the credentials for the server.


      The software pre-populates these parameters with the credentials that you used to access the Command Center.

      The SYSTEM user account with full privileges is created by default when you install the OpenVMS operating system. You can use any other user account with similar privileges.

      Only the files for which the user account or its group has read access are backed up.

    2. From the Access node client list, select the proxy client name or client group name on which the File System Agent was installed, and then click Add.

  9. Click Save.


The software creates the additional OpenVMS server.
