Node Configuration Checklist for HyperScale X Reference Architecture

Updated

HyperScale nodes must adhere to the following network requirements:

  • Must be located in the same datacenter

  • Data protection and storage pool interfaces in different subnets

  • Storage pool interfaces within the same subnet and VLAN

Check the hardware to make sure that the hardware is functioning properly, including the following:

  • Power supply

  • Fans

  • No failed hard drives

Note: Firmware on all the HyperScale nodes are the same and match the latest firmware version provided by the vendor. Commvault does NOT test every firmware release and defers to the Original Equipment Manufacturer for recommended firmware levels.

Use the following worksheet to record the hostnames and IP addresses required for HyperScale X Reference Architecture node installation and configuration.
