Uninstalling the Rapid NFS plug-in

Use the following procedure to remove the Rapid NFS plug-in from a Linux-based media server. After you uninstall the plug-in, Rapid NFS will be disabled and “inactive” will be shown next to NFS Write Accelerator on the NFS Connection Configuration pane on the Container Statisticspage.

NOTE: You should retain the Rapid NFS plug-in installer on the media server in case you need to use it to reinstall the plug-in. It is usually located in /opt/quest/QoreStor/RDNFS/scripts.

To uninstall the Rapid NFS plug-in on Linux:

  1. Stop the Data Management Application (DMA) backup service before using the -uninstall option.

    The Rapid NFS plug-in installer returns an error if the DMA service is running when attempting to uninstall the plug-in.

  2. Run the Rapid NFS plug-in installer (usually located in /opt/Quest/QoreStor/RDNFS/scripts) with the -uninstall option, which uninstalls the plug-in, using the following command:
    $> ./QuestRapidNFS-xxxxx-x86_64.bin -uninstall

    NOTE: You must stop the DMA service before uninstalling the Rapid NFS plug-in (you are also required to use the Rapid NFS plug-in installer to uninstall the plug-in).

  3. Check that the plug-in is uninstalled by viewing the usage graph in the GUI; it should not indicate any XWriteactivity.

Uninstalling the Rapid CIFS plug-in

Use the following standard Microsoft Windows uninstall process to remove the Rapid CIFS plug-in from a Windows-based media server. After you uninstall the plug-in, Rapid CIFS will be disabled and “inactive” will be shown next to CIFS Write Accelerator on the CIFS Connection Configuration pane on the Container Statisticspage.

Alternatively, if you want to disable (but not uninstall) the plug-in, you can run the following Rapid CIFS utility command. The utility is located in C:\Program Files\Quest\Rapid CIFS.
rdcifsctl.exe driver -d

Configuring and using VTL

This topic introduces Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs) and related concepts and tasks. Refer to the subsequent topics and procedures in this section for more information.

Understanding VTL

A Virtual Tape Library (VTL) is an emulation of a physical tape library on a disk-based deduplication and compression system such as QoreStor. The tape library is exposed to a Data Management Application (DMA) as if it is a physical library with tape drives and cartridges, which the application uses for backup. Because a VTL completely emulates a standard library, the introduction of virtual tape is seamless and transparent to existing tape backup/recovery applications. The management of the library, including the drives and tapes, is done by the DMA using SCSI commands. For details on the applications supported, see the QoreStor Interoperability Guide.
