Introduction

The Advanced subtab lets you reset to factory defaults, create a client for backing up the NAS share space on the CFA, and change some global settings if required.

notification_importantThis subtab is hidden by default unless in the advanced view mode. It is not recommended to open without prior consultation with the support representative.

Administration Settings

The first setting in the Administration group is Create NAS Backup Client.

Create NAS Backup Client

To create an NAS backup client, click Create. A results window will appear; click OK to close the window.

Then click Activate Configuration in the upper-right corner of the screen to complete the creation.

Global Settings

The Global Settings group provides an interface to some of the advanced settings used by the backup system’s backup program. In most cases, the settings on this page should not require any changes.

After you make any changes, click Apply to save your changes.

File Daemon

Setting Description
Listening TCP Port 1 The TCP port that the backup system Director binds to. The default is 9102. This port has been registered, so conflicts with another application are unlikely. If you encounter a conflict in the network environment, you can change the port specification.
Heartbeat interval This setting defines an interval of time. For each heartbeat that the client agent receives from the Storage daemon, it will forward it to the Director. In addition, if no heartbeat has been received from the Storage daemon and thus forwarded the File daemon will send a heartbeat signal to the Director and to the Storage daemon to keep the channels active. The default interval is 0, which disables the heartbeat. This setting affects only the client agent running on the CFA itself.
It is particularly useful, if you have a router that does not follow Internet standards and times out an inactive connection after a short duration.

Storage Daemon

Setting Description
Listening TCP Port 2 The TCP port that the backup system Storage Daemon binds to. The default is 9103. This port has been registered, so conflicts with another application are unlikely. If you encounter a port conflict in your network environment, you can change the port specification.
Listening (bind to) Address The IP Address that the backup system Storage Daemon will bind to. Normally the backup system Storage Daemon will bind to all addresses present on the CFA. To limit the daemon to one of the two network interfaces, select the IP address of the appropriate network interface.
Maximum Concurrent Jobs The maximum number of backup jobs that the backup storage system will accept simultaneously. This number should be equal to or greater than the Maximum Concurrent Jobs for the Director.
  1. If you change this parameter, you will need to add each client back in, and download each client’s configuration file again. You can also edit each client’s configuration file by changing the line that reads FD Port = 9102 to indicate the new port number. If you change a port to one already in use, errors will occur. 

  2. If you change a port to one that is already in use, errors will occur.
