Storage Targets

A storage target can be one of the following:

  • A cloud library or a disk library that you associate with one or more mount paths. A mount path is a set of partitioned disks or arrays that is associated with a file system. A mount path can be a local disk or networked attached storage on the disk library MediaAgent. This is where data is stored when it is backed up.
  • A tape library attached to a MediaAgent.

The Storage Targets page lists the name, status, manufacturer, and model of the storage targets you add.

Available Operations

You can perform the following  operations on the Storage Targets page:

  • Add a storage target.
  • Delete or deconfigure a storage target.
  • View the storage target details.
  • Manage a Tape library, which includes the following operations:
    • Resetting the library
    • Deconfiguring the library
    • Validating a drive
    • Cleaning a drive
    • Unloading a drive
    • Resetting a drive

    Note: Other operations for Tape libraries are currently not supported in the Admin Console. Administrators/users must use the CommCell Console to perform these operations. Similarly, advanced configurations for Tape Libraries must be performed using the Expert Storage Configuration available in the CommCell Console.
