This is a draft document for the SEP sesam upcoming Beefalo V2 release. Note that the article is in the initial stage and may be updated, replaced or deleted at any time. It is inappropriate to use this document as reference material as it is a work in progress and should be treated as such.

Overview

This article describes SEP sesam configuration of StoreOnce Catalyst storage system. Note that before you start with SEP sesam configuration, your HPE StoreOnce backup appliance must be set up correctly as described in HPE StoreOnce Configuration.

As of SEP sesam v. 4.4.3 Beefalo, you can use Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) StoreOnce Catalyst stores as a backup storage. HPE StoreOnce enables bandwidth efficient backup and restore over LAN, WAN and Fibre Channel. SEP sesam treats the StoreOnce Catalyst stores like any other devices. Note that before you configure a SEP sesam backup to StoreOnce Catalyst stores, your HPE StoreOnce backup appliance must be set up properly, as described in HPE StoreOnce Configuration. Ensure that all the requirements are met and check the minimum supported version of the HPE StoreOnce system.

Once your HPE StoreOnce appliance is set up and the Catalyst stores are created on the StoreOnce system, you can configure the HPE StoreOnce data store(s) in the SEP sesam GUI. As of v. 4.4.3 Beefalo V2, you can use Cloud Bank store(s) in order to replicate to the HPE Cloud Bank Storage; for details, see Creating HPE StoreOnce Cloud Bank store.

Configuring HPE StoreOnce data store

SEP sesam HPE StoreOnce data store is a special device type used for writing savesets directly to HPE StoreOnce Catalyst stores.

  1. In the Main selection -> Components, click Data Stores to display the data store contents frame.
  2. From the Data Stores menu, select New Data Store. A New Data Store dialog appears.
  3. In the Name field, enter the name for the HPE StoreOnce Catalyst store equal to the name you have specified during HPE StoreOnce Catalyst store creation, for example, Catalyst_Store_1.
  4. From the Store type drop-down list, select HPE StoreOnce.
  5. Make sure that the option Create Drive is checked under the Drive parameter properties. The predefined value for the drive is automatically added to the Drive number field.
  6. Under the Drive group properties, select Create new drive group if you want to create a new drive group, for example, StoreOnce-store, or select Use existing drive group to add a drive to one of the configured groups, available in the drop-down list.
  7. The predefined number of channels is already displayed in the Max. channels drop-down list. The number of available channels depends on your SEP sesam Server package. The standard license supports 10 concurrent streams, enabling 10 backup processes to run simultaneously. For details on SEP sesam licenses, see Licensing.

  9. Switch to the HPE Credentials tab, click New and create a new credential set. Note that for each Catalyst store a separate credential set must be created.
  10. Depending on your connection (Fibre Channel or Ethernet), you have to specify the following settings:

    • Catalyst over Ethernet
      • Data adress: Resolvable host name of HPE StoreOnce system.
    • Catalyst over Fibre Channel
      • Data adress: Fibre Channel Identifier. It is in the format COFC-<device-id>, e.g., COFC-1JB6Q36FMNR4JG0X.
      • Identifier: Use the Catalyst Client Name as user name (can be found in the StoreOnce GUI -> Permissions tab of the configured Calayst store).
      • Catalyst password/Verify Catalyst password

  11. You can create media pool(s) for the HPE StoreOnce data store immediately by clicking Create Media Pool button or later in the HPE StoreOnce data store properties. If you have decided to create media pool(s) later, click OK to configure your StoreOnce data store

Configuring HPE Cloud Bank store

The HPE Cloud Bank storage is supported exclusively as a Catalyst copy target (not as a backup target) and should be used for long-term retention and archive of backups and offsite backup copies intended for disaster recovery.

Configuring a Cloud Bank store as a replication target is pretty straightforward and does not differ much from the configuration of a regular Catalyst store, described above.

  1. In the Main selection -> Components, click Data Stores to display the data store contents frame.
  2. From the Data Stores menu, select New Data Store. A New Data Store dialog appears.
  3. In the Name field, enter the name for the HPE StoreOnce Cloud Bank store equal to the name you have specified during HPE StoreOnce Cloud Bank store creation, for example, Cloud_Bank_Store_1.
  4. From the Store type drop-down list, select HPE Cloud Bank Store.
  5. Make sure that the option Create Drive is checked under the Drive parameter properties. The predefined value for the drive is automatically added to the Drive number field.
  6. Under Create new drive group, specify a new Cloud Bank drive group, for example, Cloud_Bank-store.
  7. The predefined number of channels is already displayed in the Max. channels drop-down list. The number of available channels depends on your SEP sesam Server package. The standard license supports 10 concurrent streams, enabling 10 backup processes to run simultaneously. For details on SEP sesam licenses, see Licensing.

  9. Switch to the HPE Credentials tab, click New and specify your credentials, as described in the above procedure (step 8).
  10. You can create media pool(s) for the HPE Cloud store immediately by clicking Create Media Pool button or later in the HPE Cloud Bank store properties. If you have decided to create media pool(s) later, click OK to configure your HPE Cloud Bank store.

After you have configured your HPE data stores, you have to create media pools for the backup and replication, respectively, as described in HPE StoreOnce Backup and HPE StoreOnce Replication.
