Hi,

We believe Adding Network drive option is specific designed only for VMBackup instance installed in windows servers. In case if a network drive needed to be added as additional storage repository in Linux environment (or) virtual appliance then we need to mount the drive in the Linux machine by adding the drive mount details in fstab. Once the drive is added in the fstab the drives will be automatically listed in the

Management -- > storage management page.


To add external drives/disks (NAS/SAN/Virtual Hard Drive) as your storage location on Vembu Repository, we request you to mount that drive to your Ubuntu backup server appliance(Physical/Virtual).Follow below steps to mount the drive,


Step 1:

     Get the list of HDD by running command “cat /proc/partitions”. Note the newly added volume. Example : /dev/sdb1

Step 2:

     Format the newly added volume. Example: mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1 (Choose the file system type as per your wish)

Step 3:

     Create mount point Example: mkdir /storage

Step 4:

    Mount the volume to that mount point. Example: mount /dev/sdb1 /storage

Follow below steps to add the mount point in “/etc/fstab” to avoid unmounting during system reboot,


Step 1:

      Open “/etc/fstab” in any editor. eg: > vi /etc/fstab

Step 2:

      Make the entry for the new volume in end of the file. defaults 1 2
Example: /dev/sdb1 /storage ext4 defaults 1 2

Once you have done that you are facing the problem while adding new volume as a Backup will be able to add the storage in the backup server console through Server Management — > Repository in your backup server. Please navigate to 'Management->Storage Management' page in Backup Server web console and you have to use 'Edit' button to add new volume as Backup Repository.
