Adding Netbackup appliance to existing netbackup plateform

Riadh_R17

Hi All,

Is it possible to add a netbackup appliance working as master server to an existing plateform which has a netbackup master server installed on a physical server and 4 media servers ? 

or it is better to have only one master per plateform and in this case the appliance will work as media only ?

Thank you in advance for your explication :)

There is only one Master per domain by architectural design.  If you are adding an appliance to an existing domain, it would be a Media server.  If you are looking to migrate your Master to the appliance and retain the current hostname, catalog, etc., that would require assistance from a partner or Consulting to migrate the Master to the new appliance.

It's one Master per environment. If you want to hook it up underneath the other Master, you're going to need to reimage the appliance first.
