Displaying Status of Catalog Search

The status gives you a quick look of catalog search server for cataloged data stored and system usage during the process. You can view the storage used, CPU usage, number of files, and savesets cataloged, and the last cataloged date and time. The status is displayed only if catalog search is installed and enabled; otherwise, no information displayed.

Configuring storage devices

About storage devices

NetVault Backup supports a wide range of devices for storing backups. The supported devices include disk-based storage devices, deduplication appliances, physical tape libraries, autoloaders, tape drives, Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs), and Shared Virtual Tape Libraries (SVTLs).

You can attach the storage devices to the NetVault Backup Server, Clients, or NAS filers in a NetVault Backup Domain. The physical storage devices can be configured for single or shared use, and connected through SCSI, iSCSI, IP, SAS, or Fiber Channel SAN interfaces.

To use a storage device in a backup or restore operation, you must first add the device to the NetVault Backup Domain. A device attached to a NetVault Backup Client is only recognized after you add the client to the NetVault Backup Server. Similarly, a device attached to a filer is only recognized after you add the filer to the server using NetVault Backup Plug-in for NDMP (Plug-in for NDMP). The MSP administrators create tenant specific media groups on the storage devices. These media groups are then assigned to the respective tenant user groups, or multiple tenant user groups of the same organization. For more information on:

Tenants can access only those media groups which are assigned to them.
