Configuration - OpenVMS File System iDataAgent


Once you have installed the File System iDataAgent on the proxy client, create an OpenVMS client from the CommCell console using the following steps.

  1. From the CommCell Bowser, right-click Client Computers, point to New Client | File System, and then click Open VMS.

  2. In the Client Name box, type the OpenVMS client name.

    In the Host Name box, type the host name of the OpenVMS client.

    In the Base Install Folder box, type the location for software installation.

    All Commvault programs, configuration files, and logs are stored under the software installation directory by default.

    Note: Provide UNIX-style path to the location. For example, /SYS$SYSDEVICE/SOFTWARE/ is the UNIX-style path equivalent to SYS$SYSDEVICE:[DEVICE].

    In the User Name box, type the name of the user account with privileges to perform operations on the OpenVMS client.

    The SYSTEM user account with full privileges is created by default when you install the OpenVMS operating system. You can use any other user account with similar privileges.

    Note: Only the files for which the user account or its group has read access are backed up.

    In the Password box, type the password for the user account.

    In the Proxy Client box, select the proxy client name on which the File System iDataAgent was installed.

    Click Next.

  3. Click Finish.

    The OpenVMS client will be added as a client in the CommCell as soon as it is created.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Proxy Client File System | defaultBackupSet.

    Right-click the default subclient and click Properties.
