Creating a container

By default, the DR Series system provides a container named backup, which is part of the storage group, DefaultGroup, for your use after you complete the basic system configuration and initialization process. You can create additional storage groups and containers to store your data as needed. For more information about storage groups, see the topic, “Managing Storage Groups.”

Containers can be accessed using the following connection types:

NDMP (for VTL type containers)
iSCSI (for VTL type containers)

(for VTL type containers on the DR4300 and DR6300 platforms)

RDA (Rapid Data Access)
OST (OpenStorage Technology)
RDS (Rapid Data Storage)
No Access (an unassigned connection type). Choosing the No Access or unassigned connection type lets you create containers that can be configured later as needed.

Adding an NFS or CIFS connection type container

To add an NFS or a CIFS connection type container, complete the following steps:

1.
On the left navigation menu, select Containers, and then select or the storage group for which you want to create a container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
The Add Container pane is displayed.
3.
For Storage Group, select the storage group to which you want to add this container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
4.
For Access Protocol, select NAS (NFS, CIFS).
5.
For Container Name, type the name of the container, and then click Next.
6.
For Access Protocols, select NFS and CIFS as appropriate.
7.
For Marker Type, select the appropriate marker that supports your Data Management Application (DMA).
None — Disables marker detection for the container.
Auto — Automatically detects CommVault, Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), ARCserve, and HP Data Protector marker types. In addition, select this option if you need to support EMC Networker 2.0.
ARCserve—Supports the ARCserve marker.
BridgeHead — Supports the BridgeHead HDM marker.
CommVault—Supports the CommVault marker.
HP DataProtector—Supports the HP Data Protector marker.
Networker — Supports EMC Networker 3.0. If you need to support EMC Networker 2.0, select Auto.
Time Navigator—Supports the Time Navigator marker.
TSM—Supports the TSM marker.
Unix Dump — Supports the Amanda marker, among others.
Improper marker selection can result in non-optimal savings. As a best practice, if you have only one type of DMA with traffic directed to a container, it is best to select the marker type that supports your DMA (for example, BridgeHead, Auto, or another). Conversely, as a best practice, if you have traffic from a DMA that is not one of the supported marker types, it is best to disable marker detection for the container by selecting the None marker type.

Click Next.
NFS Options — Defines the type of access to the container. Select one of the following options.
Read Write Access — To allow read-write access to the container.
Read Only Access — To allow read-only access.
Map Root To — Select one of the following options from the drop-down list to define the user level you want mapped to this container.
Nobody — to specify a user on the system without root access permissions.
Root — to specify a remote user with root access to read, write, and access files on the system.
Administrator — to specify the system administrator.
Client Access — Define the NFS client(s) that can access the NFS container or manage the clients that can access this container by selecting one of the following options.
Open (allow all clients) — To allow open access for all clients to the NFS container you create. (Select this option only if you want to enable access for all clients to this NFS container.)
Create Client Access List — To define specific clients that can access the NFS container. In the Client FQDN or IP text box, type the IP address (or FQDN hostname) and click the Add icon. The “added” client appears in the Allow Clients list box. (To delete an existing client from this list box, select the IP address (or FQDN hostname) of the client you want to delete, and click the Delete icon. The “deleted” client disappears from the list box.)
Client Access — Define the CIFS client(s) that can access the container or manage the clients that can access this container by selecting one of the following options.
Open (allow all clients) — To allow open access for all clients to the container you create. (Select this option only if you want to enable access for all clients to this container.)
Create Client Access List — To define specific clients that can access the container. In the Client FQDN or IP text box, type the IP address (or FQDN hostname) and click the Add icon. The “added” client appears in the Allow Clients list box. (To delete an existing client from this list box, select the IP address (or FQDN hostname) of the client you want to delete, and click the Delete icon. The “deleted” client disappears from the list box.)

Moving data into a CIFS type container

To move data into an existing CIFS type container, complete the following steps.

1.
Click Start > Windows Explorer > Network.
The Network page is displayed, which lists all current computers.
2.
In the browser Address bar, click Network to select your DR Series hostname or IP address.
The Network page is displayed, which lists all current storage and replication containers.
NOTE: However, if your DR Series system is not listed, you can enter its hostname or IP Address preceded by "https://" and followed by the container name in the Address bar to access it (for example in this format, https://10.10.20.20/container-1). The DR Series system only supports the Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) form of IP addressing.

Creating an OST or RDS connection type container

To create an OST or RDS connection type container, follow these steps:

1.
On the left navigation menu, click Containers, and then select the storage group for which you want to create a container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
The Add Container pane is displayed.
3.
For Storage Group, select the storage group to which you want to add this container. (If you are only using the DefaultGroup storage group in your DR Series system, you do not need to select a group.)
4.
For Access Protocol, select Rapid Data Storage (RDS) or OpenStorage (OST) as appropriate.
5.
For Container Name, type the name of the container, and then click Next.
6.
If you selected Symantec OpenStorage (OST), for LSU Capacity, select one of the following options allowed per container:
Unlimited — To define the allowed amount of incoming raw data per container (based on the physical capacity of the container). If you selected RDS, by default, Unlimited is selected.
Quota: To define a set limit in Gibibytes (GiB) for incoming raw data allowed per container.
