Configuring a Disk Library as a Storage Target

You can configure a disk library as a storage target. You must assign a mount path to a disk library. A mount path can be:

  • A local disk drive associated with the MediaAgent
  • A disk drive that is on networked-attached-storage (NAS) associated with the MediaAgent


  1. From the navigation pan, click Storage targets.

    The Storage targets page appears.

  2. Click Add storage in the upper right of the page, and then select Disk.
  3. In the Add disk storage dialog box, enter the disk library details:
    1. In the Name box, type the name of the library.
    2. From the MediaAgent list, select the MediaAgent that will write the data to the disk.
  4. To use a local disk as the mount path, click Local path and in the Path box, type the full path name to the storage location.
  5. To use a network drive as the mount path, provide the following information:
    1. Click Network path.
    2. In the User name and Password boxes, type the credentials for a user who has write access to the network device.
    3. In the Path box, type the full path name to the storage location.
  6. Click Create.


The disk library is available. You can associate the disk library with a plan.
