HPE StoreOnce


HPE StoreOnce is another product that allows you to store backups from our vProtect application. As with other providers, here we can also use NFS share.


To create NFS share from the StoreOnce dashboard, after login go to StoreOnce -> NAS -> Shares on the left side tree menu. Next, click on the "Create" button in the top right.
Only one change is required, the rest is optional and depends on your preferences. This is the "access protocol", you must select the NFS option.
After creating it, you'll see a summary window. (remember "Network Path")
Now connect to the vProtect node host:
  • Create an NFS directory mount point
    mkdir /directorypath
  • Mount NFS Share
    mount -t nfs Storeonce_IP:/nas/sharename /mountdirectory
  • Check if you are connected with NFS Share
    df -kh
To permanently add NFS share, you must edit the / etc / fstab file Storeonce_IP:/nas/sharename /mountdirectory nfs defaults 0 0
Now we can create a backup destination for our backups. Please log in to the vProtect dashboard and go to the "Backup Destination" tab on the left side menu. Then choose "File system" from the list of backup destinations you can create.
You only need to enter the unique name of the backup destination and mount point as the storage path.
