Description

Configuring a storage array by using the Storage Array Configuration Wizard

Use the Storage Array Configuration Wizard to configure a storage array for use with the Backup Exec Storage Provisioning Option.

Backup Exec then submits a Configure Storage Array job to create the virtual disks.

Note:

In a Central Admin Server Option (CASO) environment, run the Storage Array Configuration Wizard from the central administration server. You can run the Storage Array Configuration Wizard for any managed media server that has the Storage Provisioning Option installed. Managed media servers can share a single storage array but cannot share a virtual disk on a storage array.
