Building NetBackup Global Cluster with VVR Option... need main.cf

Hello,

 

 

I am trying to build a global cluster with VVR option. Where i have one NetBackup cluster in Site A with two nodes and one Netbackup Cluster in Site B with single node. I know how to do replication manually for the catalog but would like to add it to global cluster configuration to automate everything. I would appreciate if anyone can share the details what services need to be modified or new service group need to be created to accomodate replication part. If i can have a working main.cf for the above solution it will be really helpfull.

 

Best Regards

Hi Mujtaba,

On page 59 of NetBAckup 7.7 High availability Admin Guide https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.DOC8603.html describes "Installing and configuring a globally clustered NetBackup Master Server"

Thanks Adonis for replying,

Thanks Adonis for replying, unfortunatly i am not looking for that. I already know the concepts and have setup the clusters accordingly on both sides. I can even create RDS and replicate Catalog manually using command line.

 

 

What i am interested is in automating the whole process where the admin can just open Veritas Cluster Manager GUI right click and failover the VVR Service group along with NetBackup service group to the other side.

 

I already have the NetBackup Service group setup on both sides meeting all the pre-requisites required. Now i only need to add entries to the main.cf file to setup automated replication...i will need to add dependencies i need to know what resources are required, what will be changed in NetBackup service group and what needs to be added to the VVR Service group which will be linked to the NetBackup Service group etc. 

I just need the main.cf file if anyone has which will help me understand all that is required.

 

 

Thanks

Re: Thanks Adonis for replying,

You will need to implement both the RVG and RVGPrimary VCS agents.

The following is an example from a GCO clustered ViOM installation.

group SFM_SStore (
        SystemList = { server101 = 0, server102 = 1 }
        AutoStartList = { server101 }
        )

        DiskGroup SFM_SStore_DG (
                DiskGroup = vomdg
                )

        IP SFM_SStore_IP (
                NetMask = "255.255.255.0"
                Device = ens33
                Address = "192.168.10.131"
                )

        NIC SFM_SStore_NIC (
                Device = ens33
                )

        RVG SFM_SStore_RVG (
                DiskGroup = vomdg
                RVG = vomdg_rvg
                )

        SFM_SStore_IP requires SFM_SStore_NIC
        SFM_SStore_RVG requires SFM_SStore_DG
        SFM_SStore_RVG requires SFM_SStore_IP

 

group SFM_Services (
        SystemList = { server101 = 0, server102 = 1 }
        ClusterList = { RHEL7 = 0, DR_RHEL7 = 1 }
        Authority = 1
        AutoStartList = { server101, server102 }
        )

...cut to save space..

        IP SFM_Services_IP (
                NetMask = "255.255.255.0"
                Device = ens33
                Address = "192.168.10.17"
                )

        Mount SFM_Services_Mount (
                FSType = vxfs
                MountPoint = "/vomdb"
                BlockDevice = "/dev/vx/dsk/vomdg/vomdb"
                FsckOpt = "-y"
                )

        NIC SFM_Services_NIC (
                Device = ens33
                )

        RVGPrimary SFM_Services_RVGPrimary (
                RvgResourceName = SFM_SStore_RVG
                )

        requires group SFM_SStore online local firm
        SFM_Services_IP requires SFM_Services_NIC
        SFM_Services_Mount requires SFM_Services_RVGPrimary
        SFM_Services_RVGPrimary requires SFM_Services_IP
        SFM_Services_XTRAPD requires SFM_Services_Mount

 

Refer to page 265 of the VCS Bundled Agents guide for more details.
