Creating a 3DFS Share

Updated

On this page

You can create a 3DFS share from a CIFS, NFS, or SMB file system backup.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > File servers.

    The File servers page appears.

  2. Click the file server.

    The file server page appears.

  3. In the row for the share, click the action button , and then click Add 3DFS share.

    The Add network share page appears.

    Note: You can also add a 3DFS network share from the 3DFS network shares tab. The 3DFS network shares tab appears if shares are already configured for the file server.

  4. Complete the following steps:

    1. Share name: Enter a name for the 3DFS share.

    2. Network storage server: Select the MediaAgent to use as the indexing server.

    3. Backup set: Select the backup set to add the 3DFS share to.

    4. Optional: Subclient: Select the subclient to add the 3DFS share to.

  5. Click Restore time, and then select the backup to use:

    • Latest backup: Creates a read-only 3DFS share with the most recent backup data.

      For more information about read-only 3DFS shares, see 3DFS Refresh on Backup.

    • Point in time: Creates a 3DFS share that reflects the data before the specified time.

  6. Click Network client selection, and then enter the following information:

    • All clients: Allows all network clients to access the share.

    • Custom clients: Allows specific network clients to access the share. Enter the host name or the IP address of the network client.

      You can also specify a subnet mask in CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation. For example, to give network share access to all network clients that have IP addresses in 192.168.0.0 subnet, enter 192.16.0.0/16.

  7. Click Additional options, and then enter the following information:

    1. Copy name: Select the copy from which the data must be accessed.

      If you select Default copy, the restore operation searches for the requested data in the primary copy, and automatically selects a different copy if the primary copy is not found.

    2. Include deleted items: Includes the deleted files in the network share.

    3. Enable ACL: Enables ACLs on 3DFS network share.

  8. Click Add.
