Add the PostgreSQL server instance that you want to back up to the pseudoclient.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Client Computers > client > PostgreSQL.

  3. On the General tab, specify the following information:
    1. From the Server Name list, select the instance that you want to back up.

      The Endpoint box displays the endpoint that the software uses to connect to the PostgreSQL instance in the Alibaba RDS cloud.

      The endpoint includes the DNS names and the port number (for example, rm-gs5c8f4l17878ta23.postgresqldb.singapore.rds.aliyuncs.com:3306).

    2. In the PostGres User Name box, type the name of a user who has credentials on the PostgreSQL server instance to perform backup and restore operations.
    3. In the PostGres User Password and PostGres Confirm Password boxes, type the password for the user.
    4. In the Maintenance DB box, type the name of a database in the PostgreSQL server instance that the software can use to establish connection with the instance.
    5. Click OK.
    6. From the Storage policy list, select the storage policy that you want to use for backup operations.
