Configuring clients

About NetVault Clients

The NetVault Clients are machines that you want to protect using the NetVault solution.

These machines require at least the client version of NetVault and TCP/IP connectivity to the server. You can attach physical and virtual storage devices locally to a client after installing the NetVault SmartClient license on it.

To use a client in a backup or restore operation, you must first add the client to the NetVault Server. A single server and its associated clients form a NetVault Domain. A NetVault Server acts as a client to itself, and you can also add it as a client to other NetVault Servers.

Installing software from WebUI (push installation)

This section includes the following topics:

About push installation

The push installation method lets you install one or more software packages on remote machines. You can use this method to install or upgrade the NetVault Client software and NetVault plug-ins on multiple machines, including Windows-based and Linux-based machines. Push installation is available for Windows-to-Windows, Windows-to-Linux, Linux-to-Linux, and Linux-to-Windows scenarios.

You can run push installation tasks from the NetVault WebUI. When the task starts, a deployment agent is installed on the remote machines. The agent copies the installation packages from a shared location and performs silent installations on the machines. The agent also sends status messages to the server. By default, the client logs are preserved on the target machine. For more information about how to modify this setting, see Configuring default settings for Deployment Manager. You can view the task status from the WebUI. After the packages are successfully installed on the machines, the WebUI automatically adds the new clients to the NetVault Server.

By default, NetVault runs a maximum of 50 concurrent push-installation processes. You can modify the default settings to increase the number of concurrent processes. For more information, see Configuring default settings for Deployment Manager.
