Windows file systems
After you successfully register the Microsoft Windows NTFS or ReFS file system with IBM Spectrum® Protect Plus, you can start to protect your data on the listed volumes and drives. You can also create an on-demand backup of your file systems data, or set up service level agreement (SLA) policies to run regular scheduled backup jobs.
Ensure that your environment in which the file system is located, meets the minimum system requirements. For more information about the system requirements, see File system requirements.
The IP address of the machine you register must be reachable from the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus server and from the vSnap server. Both must have a Windows Remote Management service that is listening on port 5985.
The fully qualified domain name must be resolvable and route-able from the IBM Spectrum Protect Plus appliance server and from the vSnap server.
