Managing Your Gateway

Managing your gateway includes tasks such as configuring cache storage and upload buffer space, working with volumes or virtual tapes, and doing general maintenance. If you haven't created a gateway, see Getting Started.

Gateway software releases will periodically include OS updates and security patches that have been validated. These updates are applied as part of the regular gateway update process during a scheduled maintenance window, and are typically released every six months. Note: Users should treat the Storage Gateway appliance as a managed embedded device, and should not attempt to access or modify the Storage Gateway appliance instance. Attempting to install or update any software packages using other methods (ex: SSM or Hypervisor tools) than the normal gateway update mechanism may result in disruption to the proper functioning of the Gateway.
