Creating a Network Share Client for CIFS Shares

After you install the Windows File System Agent on the data access nodes, create a network share client in the CommCell Console.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, point to New Client > File System > NAS/Network Share.

    The Add NAS/Network Share Client dialog box appears.

  2. Select the Network Share check box.
  3. Select the Windows check box.
  4. In the Client Name box, type a name for the new Network Share client.
  5. In the Host Name box, type the host name for the Network Share client.
  6. Click OK.


The Commvault software creates a client that has Windows File System Agent with a default backup set and a default subclient.
