FireStreamer with Netbackup 7.5

HI All,

Good day !!!

We are testing Netbackup 7.5 with FireStreamer VTL, is there any idea how to do it?

We have installed FireStreamer on a machine and Netbackup is able to see the Robot and drives but it gives an error “Robot with an Unknown Robot type cannot be enabled “

Can anyone guide?

Regards

Ajin

If I remember correctly, the

If I remember correctly, the inquiry string of the library and the drives are not emulating a known library and drive but it is proprietary FireStreamer strings

netbackup Device Mappings Files does not have any information for FireStreamer devices and cannot handle them.

You should ask Cristalink if the software can emulate a known library and drives. If not Cristalink must speak with Symantec to add the VTL to the Device Mappings Files.

Again, If I remember correctly as it was more than one year sins I tried FireStreamer.

Hello all,

I am Anup. I go by Shanerock(nick name from my rock band) on this community. First of all kudos to Symantec for creating a wonderful product like Netbackup. This is my first post on this community, so I have decided to make an exciting start. Here comes a concise original technical documentation of Netbackup on Virtual infrastructure with VTLs. I am sure you guys would love it. I would be adding more and more to it, which would be coming as separate ebooks. Hoping that you will make the best use of it. Please do share your feedback, which would be very helpful in creating other docs.

 

Thanks in advance!!!

 

 

Kind regards,
