  • Backup a System by using the IP-Address
    Posted: 03-19-2020, 6:56 AM


    I have a quick question.
    If I want to backup a system that only provides me with one IP address, can Commvault handle this or do I need an FQDM?

    Hi Thomas

    As long as the Client is able to reach the CommServe you can configure the Client using only IP during the installation

    Hello Tomas

    You can perform the installation only by placing the IPs both when it asks for the hostname of the client to install and in the Commserve when it asks for the data for registration

    Something that may be useful to you is in the host file in the path C: \ Windows \ System32 \ drivers \ etc \ or / etc / (depending on the optional system) record in the hosts file the IP and the hostname of the server, this will will allow the commserve and the client to identify themselves correctly


    Commserver Windows
    You open a notebook as administrator
    Go to this path C: \ Windows \ System32 \ drivers \ etc \
    Allow viewing all file types
    Open the HOSTS file
    add the lines (XXX.XXXX.XXX.XXX "hostname Client server")
    This will allow you to install with IP and hostname.

    One way to check this is:

    In a CMD Execute: Ping "IP" ( must answer the ping
    Subsequently execute: ping -a "IP" ( in this way it should show you the host of the server

    I hope it helps you
    if you need some images, tell me
