Adding an Additional Server for File System

You can add an additional server to your Commvault solution to replace an existing server or to help reduce the load on existing servers.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > File Servers.

    The File Servers page appears.

  2. In the Servers area, click Add server >Add Windows/UNIX File Server.

    The Add server dialog box appears.

  3. In the Host Name box, type the host name of the server.
  4. In the Username and Password boxes, type the credentials for the server.

    Note: The software pre-populates these parameters with the credentials that you used to access the Command Center.

  5. Optional: In the Plan box, select a server plan.
  6. To specify the operating system, click Windows or Unix and Linux.
  7. Click OK.


The software is installed on the server. If you chose the interactive option, you are taken to Web Console to complete the installation.
