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.

The host name is not required when you create a network share client, but if you do provide the host name, the software uses it as follows:

  • For file servers such as NetApp, the host name is used to map the array information to the corresponding client.
  • For all file servers, the host name is automatically populated when you browse for content on a file server. (If a valid host name is not provided when you create the network share client, you can manually enter the host name during the browse operation.)??????

Procedure

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, and then go 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 Network Share client.
  5. In the Host Name box, type the host name for the Network Share client.
  6. Click OK.

Result

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