You can use HBR to back up SMB NAS files and restore them when necessary. This topic
describes the preparations that you need to make before backing up data.
When using Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) to back up files from ECS instances, you must
authorize two roles: AliyunHBRDefaultRole and AliyunECSAccessingHBRRole. After the
authorization, HBR and ECS are accessible by each other. Proceed as follows:
- Log on to the HBR console.
- Authorization pages appear one by one, which require you to confirm the authorization
of these roles.
Install Cloud Assistant
An ECS backup client must work with Cloud Assistant. By default, Cloud Assistant clients
are installed on ECS instances that are created after December 1, 2017. To back up
ECS instances that you bought before December 1, 2017, you must install the Cloud Assistant client.
Add a mount point
In the NAS console, add a VPC-type mount point for the created SMB NAS file system. For more information
about how to add a VPC-type mount point, see Create a mount point.
After adding the mount point, click Manage
next to the file system in the Action column. On the File System Details page that
appears, check the mount point path.
Create an ECS instance
Create an ECS instance in the VPC where the mount point for the NAS file system resides.
For more information, see Create an instance by using the wizard
Notice We recommend that you create an ECS instance in Windows 2012. In Windows 2016, you
must run Alibaba Cloud HBR as the administrator due to operating system permission
