3.Select the backup set location type from the drop-down menu below. You can back up content from your SharePoint farms to a network location that you specify with a UNC path. You can also back up content to a Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) client node, Azure and/or Amazon account. You must set up a TSM virtual server client node, Azure and/or Amazon account before you can back up to these options.

info

NOTE: If you remove a backup location that Metalogix Backup for SharePoint uses to store data in TSM, removing the location removes references to the data in Metalogix Backup for SharePoint. In addition, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint sets the data objects to Inactive in TSM but does not automatically delete the data itself. If you need to delete the data from TSM, you should use the TSM management tools to do so.

4.Provide the connection details for the chosen location type as required.

Example 1: Settings for Backup Set Location type = Network Location (UNC Path)

ConfigWizard_090_Add_Backup_Set_Location_UNC

Example 2: Settings for Backup Set Location type = Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM)
