Configure Object Storage

The Object Storage devices and media must be configured before they can be used by Storage Manager. There are two ways to configure Object Storage:

When configuring Object Storage for use, the typical order of events is:

  1. Add the appliance.
  2. Add the controller node.
  3. Add the I/O path.
  4. Add the namespace.

Note: Before you create an Object Storage device in Storage Manager, the namespaces/buckets/containers you plan to use must already exist in an Object Storage appliance or system.
