Creating an Amazon S3 Virtual Client

After installing the File System Core, File System, and Cloud Apps packages on the proxy client computer, you must create a virtual client to perform backup and restore operations.

Procedure

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, and then click New Client > Cloud Storage > Amazon S3.

    The New Amazon S3 Client dialog box appears.

  2. On the General tab, provide the following details:
    1. In the Client Name box, type a name for the new virtual client.
    2. In the Instance Name box, type a name for the instance.
    3. In the Access Node box, select the proxy client computer where the Cloud Apps package is installed.
    4. In the Storage Policy box, select a storage policy for the backup and restore operations.
    5. In the Number of Data Backup Streams box, type the number of data streams to use for backups. The maximum value is 99.

      Note: The number of streams must not exceed the maximum number configured in the subclient storage policy. The CommServe allocates streams depending on the availability of resources.

  3. On the Connection Details tab, provide the following details:
    1.  In the Host URL box, type the Amazon S3 service account URL (s3.amazonaws.com).
    2. In the Amazon S3 Access Key ID box, type the access key ID of your Amazon S3 service account.
    3. In the Secret Access Key box, type the secret access key of your Amazon S3 service account.
    4. In the Verify Access Key box, re-type the secret access key of your Amazon S3 service account.
  4. Click OK.

Result

The Commvault software creates an Amazon S3 virtual client that contains a default instance.
