Hello, I have a basic default install of NBU on a single server. I have a backup job running successfully that writes to local disk. I am trying to add an S3 Object Store as an archive tier or secondary location to write backup files, but I can't seem to get the Clous Storage Server to complete successfully (I am using the wizard). I am trying to use RStor.io cloud storage (endpoint is: s3.demo.rstorcloud.io), which is not currently listed in the drop down list of vendors/providers. Anyone familiar with configuring and using this feature, I would very much appreciate your help... Thank you!
Your cloud vendor is not supported, which is why it isn't in the dropdown box. You will need to either switch to a supported cloud vendor, or ask your account team to see if rstor.io will be supported in upcoming patches/releases.
Ethan, so that means I cannot create/enter connection info (S3 endpoint, access keys, etc) for any other Object Storage than what is specifically listed in the drop-down vendor list? Even if the OBS fully supports S3 API...
Correct. Just because the OBS support S3 API, doesn't mean that NetBackup has a supported plug-in for that OBS. The list of vendors has grown dramatically in the last 2 years, so it's entirely possible that more vendors will be added soon. It would be worth a call or email to your account executive to see if your vendor is in the works.
Here is a list of S3 cloud vendors that are currently certified and supported with NetBackup.
