Creating a Pseudo-Client for an Amazon RDS Account
Create a pseudo-client with the Amazon RDS account information so that you can back up to and restore from an Amazon RDS SQL instance.
The pseudo-client provides an easy way for you to manage all the Amazon RDS instances that belong to the same account.
You can add multiple proxy servers to the pseudo-client. The Commvault software uses the first proxy server in the list for instance and database discovery.
Before You Begin
- Obtain an Amazon RDS account.
- Obtain a root user access key by using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), as described in Managing Access Keys for Users.
- On Amazon, create an Amazon RDS instance.
- In the CommCell Browser, right click Client Computers, and then click New Client > Cloud Apps > Amazon SQL.
The Create Amazon Client dialog box appears.
- Specify the client information.
- In the Client Name box, type the Amazon RDS instance name.
- In the Access Key box, type the access key for the Amazon user that has access to the Amazon RDS instance.
- In the Secret Key box, type the secret access key for the Amazon user that has access to the Amazon RDS instance.
- Add a proxy server.
- In the Proxies section, click Add.
- In the Select Clients/Client Groups dialog box, select the proxies the software uses for backups and restores.
- Click OK.
- You can add multiple proxy servers.
- Click OK.
What to Do Next
Configure SQL servers for the pseudo-client. The SQL servers represent the Amazon RDS instance that belongs to the account. For more information, see Adding Amazon RDS SQL instances to the Pseudo-client.
