Backup & Recovery

In this article, I'll describe the method of how to setup backup LAN, hope helps.

 

NBU environment info:

NetBackup Role

Hostname

NetBackup Name

IP Address(NIC1)

 

Master

i108-eng161

i108-eng161

10.200.161.108

 

Client

i109-eng161

i109-eng161

10.200.161.109

 

 

Add a new network card(NIC2) on master and client to build backup LAN.

NBU environment info(after add NIC2):

NetBackup Role

Hostname

NetBackup Name

IP Address(NIC1)

IP Address(NIC2)

Master

i108-eng161

i108-eng161

10.200.161.108

192.168.1.108

Client

i109-eng161

i109-eng161

10.200.161.109

192.168.1.109

 

Master/Client hosts file:

192.168.1.108     masterbackup

192.168.1.109     clientbackup

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

<16>bptestbpcd main: Request from host masterbackup (192.168.1.108) to host clie

ntbackup (192.168.1.109) is not allowed access.

        Host masterbackup (192.168.1.108) is not an authorized server for host i109-eng161.cdimglab.net.

server not allowed access

 

Q: How to build backup LAN?

  1. On NetBackup Master side, add SERVER entry to include “masterbackup”. Host Properties->Master Servers->Servers->Additional Servers.
  2. On NetBackup Client side, add SERVER entry to include “masterbackup”.

 

c:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd>bptestbpcd -host clientbackup

1 1 1

192.168.1.108:50275 -> 192.168.1.109:1556

192.168.1.108:50276 -> 192.168.1.109:1556

 

c:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd>bptestbpcd -host i109-eng161

10.200.161.108:50293 -> 10.200.161.109:1556
