Amazon FSx for Windows File Server (Command Center)

Updated

You can use the Commvault Windows File System agent to back up and restore the AWS FSx SMB shares that are configured with the AWS managed active directory.

Key Features

  • You can perform full, differential, incremental, and synthetic full backups of files hosted on AWS FSx SMB shares.

  • You can back up and restore AWS FSx SMB shares data with ACLs.

  • You can back up Amazon FSx file storage that is mounted on Linux by using a Linux proxy. The content to be backed up by the subclient must be on a mounted path that has been mounted on an access node using the CIFS protocol. You cannot use the automount format.

Limitations

  • When you restore AWS FSx SMB shares data to on-premise computers, ACL restores might only display the user ID because the on-premise domain might not map the AWS FSx SMB share domain.

  • When you restore data from an on-premise computer to AWS FSx SMB shares, the data is restored. However hard links, soft links, and some special attributes such as compression are lost.

  • You cannot restore data and ACLs from an on-premise computer to AWS FSx.

  • When you back up Amazon FSx file storage that is mounted on Linux, ACLs which have been created on the SMB share are not backed up.
