Creating an S3 bucket on Veritas Access for storing deduplicated backup data from NetBackup
To create an S3 bucket on Veritas Access for storing deduplicated backup data from NetBackup
- Log on to the Veritas Access GUI as the master user using the following URL:
https://Veritas Access Management console IP:14161/.
You can obtain the Veritas Access Management console IP by logging on to the Veritas Access command-line interface using the su - master command on the Veritas Access cluster.
- Create a storage pool for the S3 buckets.
Click NAS Infrastructure in the GUI navigation on the left.
Select the disks that you want to use for the S3 bucket, and click the Add to Storage Pool button to invoke the wizard for storage pool creation.
Follow the steps in the wizard for creating a new storage pool or adding the disks to an existing pool.
- Click Settings > User Management > Configure Active Directory to configure AD.
Enter the required information, such as the DNS Domain, DNS Name Servers, AD Domain, AD Domain Controller, and the AD Admin and Password.
- Click Settings > S3 Management to configure and enable the S3 server.
Edit the default parameters that are required for the S3 server, such as the storage pool name, underlying S3 bucket layout, and the default size of the bucket.
If you want to enable SSL, See Enabling SSL on Veritas Access.
- Click the button in front of S3 Server Status to start the S3 server.
- Log out from the GUI, and log in again as an AD user.
Click on the Create keys button to generate the access key and the secret key for the Veritas Access S3 bucket.
Save the access key and secret key in a safe location, as Veritas Access does not allow retrieval of keys after initial creation.
Log in using the domainname\\username format.
- Log out from the GUI, and log in again as the master user.
- Registration of supported public cloud service is optional, and is only required in case you need to add an AWS cloud as a storage tier. Without this, backups are stored locally in Veritas Access S3 buckets.
Click Settings > Cloud Storage Registration > Add Cloud Subscription to register the supported public cloud service.
Enter information for the cloud service provider, name of subscription, access key, and secret key.
- Activate the long-term data retention (LTR) policies.
Click Policies > LTR Policy.
Click Activate for either the LTR On-Premises + Cloud policy or the LTR On-Premises policy and provide the storage pool when prompted.
- Provision the NetBackup bucket using the policy.
Under Quick Actions, click Provision Storage. Select S3 Storage for NetBackup and click Next.
Provide the bucket size, underlying layout of the bucket, the access key, and the secret key of the Veritas Access S3 server generated as the AD user in step 6.
If you selected the LTR On-Premises + Cloud policy, add information such as which data should be moved to the AWS cloud tier, AWS region, cloud tier type (S3/Glacier), and when the data movement to the cloud should occur.
- Monitor the progress of the task under Recent Activity.
Make a note of the scale-out file system name that was used for the bucket creation.
- Click File Systems.
For the scale-out file system that is created, ensure that the S3 Bucket column displays Yes to indicate that the S3 bucket is enabled.
You may need to wait for some time for this change to be reflected in the GUI.
