Configuring the Network

Setup up a network by assigning static IP addresses to the interfaces in the nodes.

Procedure

  1. Login to a node using the following credentials:

    Login: root

    Password: cvadmin

    Note: This password can be changed during setup.

  2. Navigate to the following folder:

    /opt/commvault/MediaAgent

  3. Execute the following command to generate an input configuration file for the data protection network:

    ./cvconfignw.py --genconfig <output configuration file path for data protection network>

  4. Edit the configuration file to add the device name, IP address, gateway and name server details.

    [network]
    device =
    ipaddr =
    gateway =
    nameserver1 =
    nameserver2 =
    netmask =

    For example, the entries in this file should be similar to the following:

    [network]
    device =enpsf3
    ipaddr =101.102.103.104
    gateway =101.100.100.100
    nameserver1 =103.99.99.1
    nameserver2 =104.99.99.2
    netmask =255.255.255.0

  5. Execute the following command to generate an input configuration file for the Storage Pool network:

    ./cvconfignw.py --genconfig <output configuration file path for storage pool network>

  6. Edit the configuration file to add the device name and IP address.

    Note: The entries for the gateway and nameservers should be left blank for the Storage Pool network.

    For example, the entries in this file should be similar to the following:

    [network]
    device =enpsf4
    ipaddr =102.11.11.71
    gateway =
    nameserver1 =
    nameserver2 =
    netmask =255.255.255.0

  7. Execute the following command to apply the settings for the Data Protection network:

    ./cvconfignw.py --configure <config file path>

    Repeat the step to apply the settings for the Storage Pool Network.

  8. Repeat these steps in the other nodes.
