Hyperscale nodes must be able to connect to a CommServe during the initial setup. If the CommServe and the HyperScale nodes are separated by a firewall, additional configuration is required to establish the connection during setup.
From the CommCell Browser, right-click Client Computers, and then click New Client.
The Add New Client dialog box appears.
Click the Unix button.
The New Client dialog box appears.
On the Client Name box, type the name of the HyperScale node used for setting up the nodes.
On the Host Name box, type the corresponding hostname of the HyperScale node used for setting up the nodes.
The Summary dialog box appears.
Review your settings, and then click Finish.
The Commvault software creates a UNIX pseudo-client with the client name that you entered.
Use this configuration on environments in which the client initiates connections to the CommServe computer.
Create a client group using the pseudo client created in step 1.
From the CommCell Browser, right-click Network Topologies > New Topology.
The Network Topology dialog box is displayed.
In the Topology Name box, enter a name for this instance of a one-way direct connection.
Optional: In the Description box, enter a description for this topology.
In the Client Type list, select Servers.
For Topology Type, select One-Way.
In the Server list, select the client group created in step 1.
In the DMZ Client Group list, select My CommServer computer.
From the Push Network Configuration dialog box, click OK.
From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers and navigate to the pseudo client.
Right-click the pseudo click and then click Properties.
Click the Network button.
The Network Properties for Client: <client_name> dialog box appears.
Click the Summary tab.
Copy / paste the contents of the Summary tab into a text file named FwConfig.txt.
Place the FwConfig.txt in the software_installation_path\Base folder in the HyperScale node used for setting up the nodes.
Navigate to the software_installation_path\Base folder in the HyperScale node used for setting up the nodes.
Register the Commvault Network Daemon service (Cvfwd.exe) using the following command:
./svc_ctrl -focus Instance001 -create cvfwd /opt/commvault/Base/cvfwd
Restart the services using the following command:
commvault -all restart
Wait until all the services restarted including
Login to a node, and using ping (or any other equivalent network command) verify that the CommServe is accessible from the HyperScale node.
If necessary, add the CommServe name and IP address to
/etc/hostsfile to make sure that the CommServe is reachable.
Step 6: Continue installing the nodes as described in Connecting the Nodes to an Existing CommServe Server.
