NBU 7.1 and VCS

Don't do it or don't do it without right EBB if you plan to use 7.1 + VCS. It's kinda unusable right now - crashing like every 4-8 hours.

Nick, your questions are

Nick, your questions are VCS-related. You should ideally book yourself on a VCS training course or read VCS admin guide...

VCS commands are the same no matter which application you are clustering.

■ If you entered a virtual name for the server in the previous step, the
installation script presents the following question:
 

Is this server part of a cluster installation?
If the answer is yes, press y and answer the series of cluster configuration

PLEASE UPGRADE !!!

SF/HA is reaching EOL end of THIS month.

Please also check the NetBackup 7 Cluster (CL):   http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH126902

seems 4.1 is (still) supported for certain OS versions.

You have never mentioned your OS?

If it is Unix/Linix, PLEASE go through ALL the requirements carefully before attempting to install.

e.g. : you MUST have rsh enabled between the two nodes.

Thanks for your reply.

In our system there are many clusters all vcs4.3.

 

I read the NetBackup 7.x Cluster Compatibility List. But there is no suse10 OS only suse 11.  This means suse10 not support nbu cluster? Are you sure ?

 

VCS 5.1 SUSE Enterprise Linux Server 11 x86-64 Master 7.0

 

I follow the "NetBackup_AdminGuide_ClusteredMasterServer.pdf " document every requirement is  ok.

Hi Nick

Kindly navigate below URL for recent compatibility for VCS version from 5.0 to 5.1 SP1.

You may need VCS 5.0MP3 & 5.0MP4 for  SUSE Enterprise Linux Server 10.
