This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi to everybody.

I would very appreciate if someone answer the following question to me. It's written in admin guide that


Do not install the FSA Agent on Enterprise Vault servers.

I wonder is it not necessary when EV is already installed or it’s unsupported configuration and won’t work.

The aim is archive Windows File server.

Thanks again.

You install the agent on your target file servers.

Your target file server will be the one hosting users files, and data.

It won't be your EV server.

So, my advice, don't do it.. it's not necessary, and can lead to all sorts of problems.

"If you want to use placeholder shortcuts, File Blocking, or FSA Reporting with a Windows file server, you must install the FSA Agent on the file server.


Do not install the FSA Agent on Enterprise Vault servers, NetApp filers, or EMC Celerra/VNX devices."
