In this article, I'll describe the method of how to setup backup LAN, hope helps.
NBU environment info:
Add a new network card(NIC2) on master and client to build backup LAN.
NBU environment info(after add NIC2):
Master/Client hosts file:
NOTES: Assume that master and client can ping each with netbackup name or IP.
Just add new network card, and configure IP Address, and add hostname resolution for new IP.
No any changes to NetBackup side, then try to run the following command to see what happened.
c:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd>bptestbpcd -host clientbackup
<16>bptestbpcd main: Function ConnectToBPCD(clientbackup) failed: 46
