How to add a VTL to Backup Server With Commvault Simpana 10

Publication Date:  2017-12-22 Views:  145 Downloads:  2
Issue Description

When following the Guide for Backup Solution for Simpana 10 software on the step to add a new Library the documentation only mentions how to add a library generated by a Volume on the server, there is no instructions on how to add and configure a Tape library like the VTL solution

 

Handling Process

When following the Guide for Backup Solution for Simpana 10 software on the step to add a new Library the documentation only mentions how to add a library generated by a Volume on the server, there is no instructions on how to add and configure a Tape library like the VTL solution

To configure and enable the Tape Library from a VTL solution follow the next steps:

Prerequisites:

  • Make sure the VTL Solution is properly configured and the FC client has been added
  • Make sure the VTL and the Backup server have their own FC Zone, if any other storage device is present on the same SAN, isolate them by a separate Zone, failing to do this can cause the Backup server not to detect the Tape Library properly

Procedure

  1. Open the Commvault Administration Console
  2. In the navigation tree, expand Storage Resources. Right-click Libraries and choose Add >Tape Library.
  3. Select Scan for hardware if the Tape Library is not present
  4. Select the Desired Tape Library and click Ok
  5. The library will be added
  6. Go to the Control Panel of the Commvault administration console and select Library and Drive Configuration
  7. Select the Media Agents that you want to configure and move it to the right
  8. Select the Tape Library you want to configure (the one that you previously added) and click start, once the Tape Library is properly Configured it will look like this
  9. Now you can use the Tape Library and Make a Backup Test once you finish the configuration of Simpana

 

 

Root Cause

The Documentation doesn't include how to add a Tape Library to Simpana 10

Solution

Follow the Process on the Handling process to add the Tape Library, I am attaching the Documentation for the Backup Solution as a reference.
