Adding a Repository

A repository is a Web Server or network share that will host the files in the Download Center. You can add as many repositories as you require.

Before You Begin

You must have the appropriate permissions to perform the operation. For information on the permissions needed to add a repository, see Accessing the Download Center.

ObjectStore Repositories

  • You must configure an ObjectStore in your CommCell environment.
  • You must know the URL of the Web Server associated with the ObjectStore. You configured this Web Server when you configured the ObjectStore.
  • You must know the credentials of the user who is assigned permissions to manage data in the ObjectStore. You created this user account when you configured the ObjectStore.

Web Server Repositories

  • To browse the Web Server repository, you must have the Live Browse permission associated with the Web Server client.
  • The Network Services account must have full permissions for the specified folder.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Web Console.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click the Configure Download Center button ().

    Note: If this is the first time you are configuring the Download Center, on the Welcome to Download Center page, click Create A Download Repository.

    The Manage Repositories page appears.

  3. From the Type of Repository list, select a repository type as follows:
    • To store download packages on a Web Server client, click Web Servers.
    • To store download packages on a network location, click A Network Location.
    • To store download packages in an ObjectStore that is configured in your CommCell environment, click Commvault Object Store.
  4. Enter the repository information as follows:
    • For Web Server repositories, enter the following:
      • In the Repository Name box, enter the name of the repository as you want it to appear in the Download Center.
      • From the Web Server list, select the name of the Web Server.
    • For network location repositories, enter the following:
      • In the Repository Name box, enter the name of the repository as you want it to appear in the Download Center.
      • In the Network Location box, enter the path to the network location that you want to use. For example, enter \\fileServerA\shareDrive1.

        Note: This is the same URL that you access the ObjectStore with by using either the Edge interface or APIs.
