Configuring Access to the CommServe Computer Using TPPM

You can configure third-party port mappings (TPPM) to connect to the CommServe computer through one or multiple Commvault proxies.

Before You Begin

The Commvault network gateway, or network gateways, must be configured. For more information, see Setting Up the Commvault Network Gateway.

Procedure

Single Proxy

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the CommServe computer and click Properties.

    The CommCell Properties dialog box appears.

  2. On the Network Route Configuration tab, click the Options subtab.
  3. Select the Access GUI Server (EvMgrS) via following proxy check box. This option automatically enables port 8401 for third-party connections.
  4. From the Remote Proxy list, select the client computer that is hosting the proxy function.
  5. In the Port Number box, specify a port to be used by the proxy to access the CommServe computer. This is a local port in the proxy that will be mapped to port 8401.
  6. Click OK.
  7. In the CommCell Browser, right-click the name of each computer that uses TPPM, then click All Tasks > Push Network Configuration.

    Verify that your network configuration was pushed successfully by looking for a network push event in the Event Viewer.

  8. If the CommCell Console is not yet installed, install the CommCell Console on the computer hosting the IIS. For more information, see Configuring an Alternate Computer for Web Administration.

Multiple Proxies

Configure multiple proxies to set up high availability among your proxies. When proxies are not available, the request is sent to the other available proxies.

Tip: If you want to configure load balancing, you can set up a third-party load balancer to forward requests to other available proxies. You can also choose to configure a global proxy host name to forward the requests.

  • Run the ConfigureThirdPartyConnections workflow on each proxy that you want to configure. For instructions, see Configuring Third-Party Connections Between Client Computers.

    When you run the workflow, provide the following information:

    • Source client: The client that acts as the network proxy.
    • Source port: Local port in the proxy computer. You can specify port 8401 or any other port of your choice.
    • Destination client: The CommServe computer.
    • Destination port: 8401

Optional Configurations

  • To configure the CommCell Console log on screen to automatically populate the proxy name and port number, see Populating Proxy Information During Log On.
  • To configure the proxy to listen to a port other than 8401, edit the Galaxy.jnlp file, and change the port number in <argument>8401</argument> to the source port that you specified in the proxy computer.

What to Do Next

Connect to the CommServe Computer through a firewall:

  • Open the CommCell Console, select the Connect through firewall check box, click Configure, and enter the following information:
    • The Proxy host name or IP address of the remote proxy
    • The Proxy port number

    For information on opening the CommCell Console, see Opening the CommCell Console.
