Configuring the File Recovery Enabler for Linux on Amazon Web Services Hypervisors


You can configure the File Recovery Enabler for Linux (FREL) for an AWS hypervisor. A FREL acts as a MediaAgent to write Linux file system backup data to storage, or to read backup data from storage.

Before You Begin

To select a MediaAgent to recover UNIX file system data, a file recovery enabler for Linux must be deployed in your environment.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Virtualization.

    The Virtual machines page appears.

  2. On the Hypervisors tab, click the hypervisor.

    The hypervisor page appears.

  3. On the Configuration tab, in the Settings section, beside File recovery enabler for Linux, click Edit.

    The Edit file recovery dialog box appears.

  4. From the list, select a MediaAgent that is configured to recover UNIX file system data.

  5. Click Save.
