About access through a Windows server's firewall for File System Archiving
This document describes the access that Enterprise Vault File System Archiving (FSA) requires through a Windows server's firewall. It applies to Enterprise Vault 12.1 and later. For earlier versions, see Enterprise Vault 8.0 to 12 original release: Configuring a Windows Server's Firewall for File System Archiving.
FSA requires access through the file server's firewall to do any of the following:
Install the FSA Agent from a remote Enterprise Vault Administration Console.
Archive files from the server.
Create placeholder shortcuts on the server.
Perform FSA Reporting on the server, or use the server as an FSA Reporting proxy server for non-Windows file servers.
If a target server's firewall is enabled and you do not configure the firewall to allow the required access, the following problems occur:
Installation of the FSA Agent from the Administration Console fails.
The File System Archiving task fails. You may receive error messages such as the following from DTrace, or in the File System Archiving task report:
The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)
Error making file a placeholder file. Catastrophic failure (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8000FFFF)
