This topic describes how to access the NAS devices page and view the information available there. The All Devices page under the Protect > NAS page displays all the NAS devices configured in your organization. In a new Druva configuration, the first step is to add a NAS proxy followed by a NAS device.

Access Path

  1. Log in to the Management Console.

  2. Select the workload from the Protect menu. Note that if the All Organizations menu is enabled, you have to first select an organization that has your NAS device and then select the workload.

  3. In the navigation pane on the left, click All Devices.

  4. The right pane displays a list of all the configured NAS devices.

Information on the All Devices page

The NAS devices page displays the following information:

Field Description
Device Name The display name assigned to the NAS device during its addition. You can click the device name to view the list of all the NAS shares on that device.
IP/FQDN The fully qualified domain name or hostname of the NAS device.
# Shares The number of NAS shares on the NAS device.
Credentials The credentials assigned to the NAS share.  The NAS proxy uses these credentials to protect SMB shares. NFS shares do not need credentials.
