An existing MediaAgent can be setup as a storage proxy.
Before You Begin
Verify that the MediaAgent meets the space, network and other requirements described in Prerequisites For Distributed Storages.
Ensure that the MediaAgent has access to the to RHEL repositories. If necessary, enable RHEL subscription to download software and updates using the following command:
subscription-manager register --username=<USER_NAME> --password=<PASSWORD> --auto-attach
Login to the Deployment Server as an admin user.
Export the HV_ROOTPASS environment variable as follows:
export HV_ROOTPASS=<root password>
If the root passwords are different between the storage nodes and the proxy, then export the password as follows:
Where: ^^^ is the separator, and the deployment process will try all passwords.
Run the following command to deploy the new proxy:
hv_deploy --add_nonhacvms <FQDN of the proxy> --cluster_name <name of the cluster> --commvault
What To Do Next
If the virtual disks are not exported, export the virtual disks so that it can be shared with the proxy. For more information about exporting virtual disks, see Exporting the Virtual Disks.
Add access to the proxy in the virtual disk, For more information adding access to the proxy, see Adding Access to the Proxy(s) in the Virtual Disks.
Mount the virtual disks on the MediaAgent/ proxy. For more information about mounting the virtual disks, see Mounting the Virtual Disk on the MediaAgent/Proxy(s).
