MySQL database no longer necessary for Server Backup Manager 5.4.0 and later installations
Server Backup Manager 5.4.0 and later installations no longer require MySQL.

Hardware prerequisites

Install the Data Center Console on an independent server. It is NOT recommended that you install DCC on the same host with Server Backup Manager.

Software prerequisites

  • Server Backup Manager Upgrade. Before installing DCC, be sure to upgrade all Backup Managers that you intend to register with DCC. For more information about upgrading your Backup Managers, see Upgrade Server Backup Manager for Windows and [Upgrade Server Backup Manager for Linux].
  • MySQL Database Creation (Pre-SBM 5.4.0 installations only). DCC is a MySQL-based application and requires a customer-supplied MySQL database instance and schema in order to properly install and run. The DCC installation and upgrade handles all table creation and any upgrade data migration. However, customers are responsible for the general health, maintenance, and availability of the MySQL database. In advance, create a MySQL database instance and user account with permissions allowing you to create, read, update, and delete objects within the account. DCC requires InnoDB storage engine support for the MySQL database instance.

For more information about creating MySQL user accounts and setting permissions, see (external link). For more information about installing MySQL, see (external link).

Make sure that all necessary ports are opened. For more information about managing network ports, see Configure network ports.

Recommended system requirements

  • Operating System: 64-bit only, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Linux 2.6
  • Physical Memory: 4 GB
  • Free Disk Space: Not less than 10 GB

For more information about system requirements, see System Requirements (OLD).
