Removing a client group

If a client group is no longer required, you can remove it from the server. When you delete a group, the machines that are in the group are not removed.

In the Navigation pane, click Manage Clients, and then on the Manage Clients page, click Manage Client Groups.
On the Client Group Management page, select the applicable client group, and click Remove.


Managing catalog search

About catalog search

The NetVault Server version 12.0 and later running on Windows and Linux operating system supports catalog searching on NetVault Server, and the NetVault Server version 12.2 and later running on Windows supports catalog searching on NetVault Server and NetVault Windows client of the same version. The NetVault catalog search service provides fast-search capabilities for the metadata (name, mod date, type etc) of items backed up by NetVault. Catalog search provides search capabilities for the tags (Filename) based on string data-type.

Catalog search results provides the following information:

The following plug-ins support catalog searching:

NetVault Plug-in for FileSystem
NetVault Plug-in for SnapMirror to Tape
NetVault Plug-in for NDMP (plug-in version 12.2 or later)
NetVault Plug-in for SQL Server
NetVault Plug-in for O365 (plug-in version 12.4 or later)


Before you start configuring the NetVault, verify that the following requirements are met:

Allow NetVault to create catalog search Linux user: The default option to allow NetVault to create Catalog search Linux user account automatically (default value: netvault-catalog on Linux).
Linux user name: Create a new Linux user account by referring to the corresponding operating system guide. Ensure that the specified catalog search Linux user belongs to the group <user name>. Create the group with the same name as of the Linux user name and add the user into the same group.
