Logging In to an Archive Server

Before creating a new vault, you may need to log in. If the account has create rights on the archive server, login is not required.

To log in to an archive server:

  1. In the Login dialog box, enter the Windows user name and password of a user with access to vaults on the archive server.
    • To add the archive server and list its vaults, log in as a user who is a member of the attach access list in the Archive Server Configuration tool.
    • To perform administrative tasks such as creating, upgrading, or removing a vault, log in as a user with administrative access.
  2. If the Login dialog box includes a Domain list, do one:
    • If you are using a local user account on the archive server, select the system name that is followed by (local account).
    • If you are using a domain account, select or type the correct domain.
  3. Click Log In.
