Configuring the Floating Host Name on a New MediaAgent Host

You can configure a floating host name for a new MediaAgent host. In this procedure, the floating host name is configured by using the Windows DNS server.


  1. Define the floating host name and map it to the IP address of the CommServe or MediaAgent host.

    For example, to define the floating host name create a DNS record with a virtual host name and IP address of the MediaAgent host. For more information on creating a DNS record, refer to the documentation associated with DNS software implemented in your environment.

  2. Install the MediaAgent software. Make sure to enter the floating host name when prompted for the MediaAgent host name.

    For instructions on installing the MediaAgent software, see MediaAgent Installation.
