Creating an Oracle PaaS Pseudo-Client

You can create a pseudo-client in the CommCell Console so that you can manage your Oracle PaaS account.

Before You Begin

Verify that you have the following information about the Oracle cloud account. For more information, go to the Oracle article "Required Keys and OCIDs", https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/iaas/Content/API/Concepts/apisigningkey.htm.

  • The tenancy OCID
  • A user ID that has permission to connect to the Oracle web console
  • The fingerprint
  • The private key file name and the password
  • The region name


  1. In the CommCell Browser, right click Client Computers, point to New Client > Virtualization, and then click Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

    The Create Oracle Cloud Infrastructure dialog box appears.

  2. Specify the client information.
    • In the Client Name box, type a unique name for the client.
    • In the Tenancy OCId box, type the Tenancy OCID.
    • In the User OCId box, type the user's OCID.
    • In the Finger Print box, type the private key's fingerprint.
    • In the Private Key box, type the private key file name.
    • In the Private Key Password box, type the password that is associated with the private key.
    • From the Region Name list, select the region that is associated with the account.
  3. Add a proxy server.
    1. Under Proxies, click Add.

      The Select Clients dialog box appears.

    2. Under Exclude, select the proxy server that the software uses for dat a protection operations, and then click Include.
    3. Click OK.
  4. Click OK.


The software creates a Virtualization client and a Cloud Apps pseudo-client. Use the Cloud Apps pseudo-client for Oracle PaaS.

The software creates a database instance that is named Database to represent your account and a default subclient that contains all the databases that the account contains.

What to Do Next

Associate the index server cloud computer with the Oracle PaaS database instance. For more information, see Configuring the Oracle PaaS Database Instance.
