  1. Select <New Storage Account>

  2. Select Cloud-A as your cloud storage provider.

Testing / Debugging

Select “Test Connection” to ensure that the system has accepted your credentials.

If Test Connection fails, ensure that you have entered your credentials correctly. If you have entered your credentials correctly but are still receiving a “Connection Failed” error message, ensure that you have the correct ports open for Bulk Storage. Those ports are: 80, 443, 8443 and 8444.

If your credentials were entered correctly, the Bulk Storage container you created in the first step will appear in the file directory in the CloudBerry software.
