Hello All,

 

We are configuring a new cloud based storage, and concerning that, we wanted to know if the CommServe has to have access to the cloud library ? Since the storage and the MA will have a private network in which the storage will present its buckets to the MA. and the CommServe with the MA will communicate through our backup network.

In the configuration steps, we came through :

 

So we wondered if that means that the CS has to have some sort of access to the storage (Which is not the case in our platform, since the storage is only seen by the MA through their private network), or it's just the information related to the MA accessing the storage ?

 

Regards.

Hi @Commvault Engineer 

CS doesn’t need access to the storage library. It is for accessing from the MA.

 

However, if you are using Storage Accelerator on your clients, clients directly try to contact the library and require connectivity to the storage. If you don’t want that you will need to disable Storage accelerator on the client.

 

Thanks,

Hi @Sunil,

 

Thanks for your feedback, so, to sum up, the CS only needs to register the information related to storage without having to access it ? Since in our case, the storage has a private network with MA, so even if we enter this information the CS will only save them in the CSDB ?

That’s correct. This info is saved in the DB and used by MA when needed.
