Configuring NAS Shares for the Cloud Appliance

IMPORTANT

Q-Cloud Protect is designed to be used as a replication target for on-site DXi appliances, on-site DXi appliances using OpenStorage (OST) optimized duplication, or Veritas NetBackup or BackupExec OST servers with DXi Accent enabled.

Q-Cloud Protect does not support use-cases for directly accessing data stored in NAS shares or VTL partitions from the cloud appliance. To access data stored in a share or partition from the cloud appliance, you must failback and recover the data at the source.

The NAS wizard provides guided assistance for configuring the Q-Cloud Protect appliance to present its storage as a Network Attached Storage (NAS) share. Although you cannot mount a NAS share from the cloud appliance, it is important to configure the cloud appliance to present its storage as a NAS share to then replicate data to it from source NAS shares.

Note: You cannot use the NAS wizard to edit existing shares. For more information about working with NAS shares, see Configure NAS.
