Creating OpenStack Swift Virtual Client

After installing the File System Core, File System, and Cloud Apps packages on the proxy client computer, you must create a virtual client to perform backup and restore operations.

Procedure

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, and then click New Client > Cloud Storage > OpenStack Swift.

    The New OpenStack Swift Client dialog box appears.

  2. On the General tab, provide the following details:
    1. In the Client Name box, type a name for the new virtual client.
    2. In the Instance Name box, type a name for the instance.
    3. In the Access Node box, select the proxy client computer where the Cloud Apps package is installed.
    4. In the Storage Policy box, select a storage policy for the backup and restore operations.
    5. In the Number of Data Backup Streams box, type the number of data streams to use for backups. The maximum value is 99.

      Note: The number of streams must not exceed the maximum number configured in the subclient storage policy. The CommServe allocates streams depending on the availability of resources.

  3. On the Connection Details tab, provide the following details:
    1. In the Host URL box, type the OpenStack Authentication service URL.
    2. In the User Name box, type the name of the OpenStack Swift service account.

      User name format: Domain Name : User Name : Project Name

    3. In the API Key box, type the API key of the OpenStack Swift service account.
  4. Click OK.

Result

The Commvault software creates an OpenStack Swift virtual client that contains a default instance.
