In the following example, NetBackup 9.1 Primary, Media and CloudPoint servers are deployed with the result being able to log into the NetBackup Primary webui and viewing the Media and CloudPoint servers attached.
To begin, log into your Azure portal and navigate to the Marketplace.
Search for “veritas” in the Marketplace search bar. When the Veritas products appear, select “Veritas NetBackup”.
A similar screen should appear to the image above. Here we choose Veritas NetBackup 9.1 and click on the Create button.
The first screen to appear asks for some basic information regarding the NetBackup environment you’d like to create.
Click next when the following information has been entered.
Primary Server Details
In this screen, put in the information regarding the primary server.
When all of the information has been entered, clicked Next.
CloudPoint Server Details
If you’ve chosen to create a CloudPoint server, the image above will appear. Enter in the following information as it pertains to your deployment.
Media Server Details
If you’ve chosen to create a Media server, the image above will appear. Enter in the following information as it pertains to your deployment.
Review + Create
After the validation has passed, review your choices and select Create.
Once the deployment has been started, you will see a similar image to the one above. At this point, no more manual intervention is needed until the deployment is complete.
Azure will automatically bring up the above page when the deployment is complete. Go to the resource group where the new machines have been created to log into the new NetBackup 9.1 environment.
Note – If the user that was created is not root, that user must be given security administrator and backup administrator permissions to log into the webui.
sudo /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpnbaz -AddRBACPrincipal -user typeofpassword:FullyQualifiedDomainName:username
sudo /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpnbaz -AddRBACPrincipal -user unixpwd:ng-nbu-primary1.eastus2.cloudapp.azure.com:bkadmin
Enter the username and password created in Basics – Step 5 and 7 and click Sign in.
On successful login you will be greeted with the following banner. For this blog, we’ll jump into the GUI to see the other created NetBackup components.
Located under Security > Hosts in the NetBackup webui we can see the three newly created resources ready to be used.
