Catalog Protection guidelines

  • Catalog imports are supported only between the same versions of RMC.

  • After RMC locally mounts NAS shares, data is written to the remote shares. Be sure that the remote share or catalyst server is reachable.

  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that the network location on NAS or HPE StoreOnce Catalyst Store is reachable within 30 seconds.

  • You can mount remote CIFS shares in multiple mount security mode options, except for Kerberos base security modes.

  • On deletion of a configuration, the physical data on the remote shares or stores is not removed or deleted. Only the catalog configuration and associated schedule configuration from RMC are deleted.

  • Mounting and authenticating NAS shares:

    • User credentials do not affect the protocols. The primary requirement for mounting NAS or NFS shares is that they must be reachable/mountable. The NFS-based protection is primarily focused on NFS shares that do not need credentials. Hence, the login credentials field does not appear in NFS shares. NFSv2 and NFSv3 permissions are oriented towards client systems and not to users.

    • The NAS or CIFS shares may or may not have user credentials and users associated may or may not be part of a domain.

  • Configuring protection for an already protected RMC on the same target (Catalyst store or NAS) is not permitted.
