Adding File Servers

To archive data on a file server, you can add a new or existing file server.

File Servers

The following file server types are supported:

  • NAS file servers such as NetApp, Dell EMC VNX / Celerra, Hitachi NAS (BlueArc), EMC Unity, and Isilon.

  • Windows file servers

  • UNIX and Linux file servers

  • Big data file servers such as Hadoop (HDFS), IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS), and Lustre

Known Issues

  • File servers that were configured using indexing version 1 are not displayed.

  • Older file servers that you ran analytics operations on are not displayed on the File servers page. However, you can add these file servers as an existing file server.

  • You can predict the number of files that qualify for archiving only for older clients that you ran analytics operations on.
