Updated

On this page

You can allow tenant administrators to use their own storage infrastructure or to use both rented storage and their own storage. By default, the company rents shared storage from the service provider.

For more information about storage settings for a company, see Managing Storage for a Company.

Procedure

  1. Create a custom installation package that includes a MediaAgent, a file system agent, and a virtualization agent.

    For more information about creating the custom installation package, see Creating a Custom Package.

  2. Upload the installation package to the Download Center on your Web Console.

    For more information about uploading the package to the Download Center, see Adding a Repository to Download Center.

    The tenant administrator must download and install this package on their client computer.
