Prerequisites for File Server

The prerequisites for installing Hybrid Workloads agent.


  1. Install Hybrid 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 the new server on Management Console.  To complete this step:
    1. Generate the activation token from Management Console.
    2. Activate the Hybrid Workloads agent on the server using the activation token. This also registers the server on Management Console.


Configure file servers

After activating Hybrid Workloads agents, the activated servers appear as registered servers under Protect > File Servers > Registered Servers.

Configure these servers to ensure their readiness for backup.
