No minimum disk space requirement for installing the software. All required components are installed automatically with the MediaAgent software. There is no separate software to install for NAS Clients. See System Requirements - MediaAgent for information on install information specific to the MediaAgent.

2% of the backup size in free disk space is required for the job results directory. For example, if the backup is 40 GB, then you must have 0.8 GB of free space for the job results directory.

256 MB of free disk space is required for log directory.

MediaAgent Operating System

Only MediaAgents with the following operating systems can be used when performing data protection operations with NDMP agent data:

  • AIX
  • HP-UX
  • Linux (except Itanium varieties)
  • Solaris
  • Windows

See System Requirements - MediaAgent for information on specific versions supported with these operating systems.

Miscellaneous

File Server

If media changers and/or tape drives are attached to the file server, all hardware (including the SAN networking hardware) must be of a type supported by the file server.

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 is Automatically Installed

Starting in Service Pack 18, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 (vcredist2017.exe) is automatically installed. If a computer does not have the latest Windows updates, the installation of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 will fail in installing Universal C Runtime.

The following Windows updates must be installed to prevent the installation failure:

KB2919355

KB2939087

KB2975061

KB2999226

Updates are not required on latest Windows operating system versions, such as Microsoft Windows 10 and Microsoft Windows Server 2016, as these versions come with the Universal C Runtime already installed.
