Configuring the Pure Storage FlashArray Array Using Array Management

For IntelliSnap backups from Commvault software, add the Pure Storage FlashArray array and its configuration information to the CommServe database.

Before You Begin

If you haven't done so yet, create a Storage Admin Group access role by integrating the Active Directory with the Pure Storage FlashArray array.


  1. On the ribbon in the CommCell Console, click the Storage tab, and then click Array Management.

    The Array Management dialog box appears.

  2. Click Add.

    The Array Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, specify the following information:
    1. From the Snap Vendor list, select Pure Storage FlashArray.
    2. In the Name box, enter the Pure Storage FlashArray array management IP address.
    3. In the Credentials area, click Change.

      The User Account dialog box appears.

    4. In the User Name box, type the credentials of a user who has administrative privileges to access the array, or who has Storage Admin Group access role. 
    5. In the API Token and Confirm API Token boxes, type the API token of the user.

      Caution: You must enter the API token of the user, not the Active Directory password.

    6. Click OK.
  4. To configure additional MediaAgents to perform operations on the storage array, on the Array Access Nodes tab, select configuration options.

    For more information, see Configuring Array Access Nodes.

  5. On the Snap Configuration tab, configure the snapshot configuration properties for your environment or use the default values.

    For more information, see Snap Configuration.

  6. Click OK.
