  • Adding Disk Libraries on a network drive located on a Linux server

    I'm planning to have a secondary backup copy of my files to another offsite location. For this, I've located an unused Linux server located on another location. How can I add the linux folder as a disk library and use it as a path for my secondary backup copy.

    First you will need to add the Linux Server as a MediaAgent into the CommServe. 

    Then you will need to configure a Disk Library, selecting the Mount Location on the Linux MediaAgent. 

    Depending on whether it is Local Volume or NFS mounted on the Linux Server, follow the following Documentation - 

    Once the above is done, configure your Secondary Copy pointing to this Linux MA

    Hopefully that helps 

    Thank you
