This is a description of how your script is going to be invoked - you need to specify:

  • Name - unique name of the application in the Storware Backup & Recovery system

  • Choose Node Config - select which node should perform the task

  • Backup policy - specify which backup policy should be used for this application

  • Command execution configuration - select a prepared template for oVirt/RHV/OLVM backup or create a new one yourself

On the SSH access subtab, complete the following fields:

  • Host - set the address of the host where the oVirt/RHV/OLVM engine exists

Next, select OS Credentials or create a new one and provide the following information:

  • Name - unique name of the OS Credentials

  • User - indicate a user for connecting to the ssh

  • Password - enter the connection password
