To accomplish what you require you must make sure the user has a valid UNIX account on the master server. Once that is done then complete the following:
1. cd to /usr/openv/java 2. vi auth.conf. Add the user information to the file:
* Entire file should appear similar to the following: root ADMIN=ALL JBP=ALL ADMIN=ALL JBP=ALL * ADMIN=JBP JBP=ENDUSER+BU+ARC
NOTE THAT if you do not want the user to have full administration rights in the console you will need to modify the auth.conf file accordingly. There is information in the Sys Admin Guide for Unix verion 5.0 (vol 1) on pages 480-48.
3. IF this is prior to version 4.5 MP/FP6, the nonroot_admin script will need to be executed.
Once this is configured on the UNIX side, the user should be able to login from a remote PC using the java console (specifying the master server host name) or locally.
It worked. One another thing which i wanted to implement is :
(a) I want to restrict access to the non-root user who is my backup admin to administer netbackup using NB admin commands and bpadm utility. I saw in the documentatiaon that there willl be a nonroot_admin scripts which needs to be executed. I dont see a file htere. Can you help me out.
Satish, In NetBackup version 5.1 that script has been removed (in 5.0 it was moved to the goodies directory), mainly due to security concerns. Basically all the script did was modify the group ownership and permissions (setting them to 644) on the commands that the users can execute. You can accomplish the same thing manually.
