Register your file server and configure the first backup.

Step 1: Log in to the Druva Management Console

To begin, log in to the Management Console with the credentials that you received in the invitation email.

Note: If this is your first login, the welcome screen appears. Click Get Started to set up Druva. 

Step 2: Prerequisites for file server

Read the prerequisites for installing Enterprise Workloads agent.

Step 3: Install the agent and register the file server

  1. Install Enterprise Workloads agent on the servers that you want to back up.
  2. Activate the agent to establish a connection between the Druva Cloud and the agent. This step also registers a new server on Management Console.  To complete this step:
    1. Generate the activation token from Management Console.
    2. Activate the Enterprise Workloads agent on the server using the activation token. This also registers the server on Management Console

Step 4: Configure file servers

  • After activating Enterprise Workloads agents, the activated servers appear as registered servers under Protect > File Servers > Registered Servers.
  • Configure file servers to ensure their readiness for backup.
