Creating a Network Share Client for NFS Exports

After you install the Linux 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 and click Add New Client.

    The Add New Client dialog box appears.

  2. From the File System ribbon, click the NAS/Network Share icon.

    The Add NAS/Network Share Client dialog box appears.

  3. Select the Network Share check box.
  4. Select the UNIX check box.
  5. In the Client Name box, type a name for the NAS/Network Share client.
  6. In the Host Name box, type the host name for the NAS/Network Share client.
  7. Click OK.


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