DR-file in case of Appliance

HI All,

You can't send DR file to basic storage unit in case of appliance.If CIFS share is not working then what is best way to store DR file?

NBU appliance is not allowing to send DR file to basic storage unit.

Regards,

Do you have a local(-ish) Windows server in same subnet, or in a subnet that is reachable, for (edit) SMB NFS traffic?

If so, then you can create a (edit) share export on that Windows server, and then mount that from the appliance, and then have the appliance write the DR file directly there.

Look in CLIsh :  Manage > MountPoints

Do you need an example?

Re: I totally agree with

Hi,

Please share the example.

I would appreciate 

 

Re: I totally agree with

@Mallek - apologies, my poor memory goofed, my config doesn't use SMB, it uses NFS Services for Windows.  Do you still want the example process for config ?

Re: I totally agree with

Thanks for sharing this information.

I just want an example for CIFS.

NBU appliance (Master) is not able to send DR files on the windows share, but Catalog backup files are sending to windows /CIFS.

 

Re: I totally agree with

Well, my example is NFS based, which I can share with you - but I do not have an SMB based example to share with you, sorry.

I do not understand this:

"NBU appliance (Master) is not able to send DR files on the windows share, but Catalog backup files are sending to windows /CIFS."

...can you re-phrase?

Re: I totally agree with

My apologies - looking in the manual, the only type of export (not a share) that can be mounted from the CLIsh of a NetBackup Appliance is of type NFS.  i.e. there is no facility to mount SMB based shares from the CLIsh.

From the Appliance Commands manual:

SYNOPSIS
