I have 1 master & 3 media redhat linux servers, they are running on netbackup 7.7.2 . , 3 media servers connect to Data Domain Storage server. I have new media server (7.7.2), I installed DD plug in on that new media server. I am not able to add that media server to existence Data Domain Storage Server (dd890_1).
My question is
Do I need add credential on new media server with command below:
tpconfig -add -storage_server dd890_1 -stype DataDomain -sts_user_id ddbadmin -password xxxx
What step do I need to add new media server to existence Data Domain Storage server dd890_1 ?
Thank you very much for your help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I see the following in your post:
I have new media server (7.7.2), I installed DD plug in on that new media server.
Did you remember to stop/start nbrmms (NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service) on the media server?
Did you run 'bpstsinfo -pi -stype DataDomain' to confirm that the plugin is loaded?
I am not able to add that media server to existence Data Domain Storage Server (dd890_1).
What exactly is happening (or not happening) here?
You can run 'tpconfig -add -storage_server ...... ' on the media server or on the master server - just add -media_server <name> to the command.
Did you go through the steps to add the new media server as a 'regular' media server on the master server?
Have you added correct license keys on the media server?
[root@xxxx-media9 ~]# bpstsinfo -pi -stype DataDomain
Plugin Name: libstspiDataDomainMT.so
Label: Data Domain Plugin
Build Version: 11

Operating Version: 11
Vendor Version: 220.127.116.11-513706
Did you remember to stop/start nbrmms (NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service) on the media server? Do I need to stop/restart it before I run tpconfig -add -storage_server ...... ' on the media server ? Because I already stop/restart netbackup services.

What steps to add new media server to storage server existing ? I checked datadomain plugin, it exists but when I run tpconfig -add -storage_server pn media server, it failed
[root@xxxx-media9 ~]# tpconfig -add -storage_server xxx-dd890-1 -stype DataDomain -sts_user_id ostuser -password xxx
sts_get_server_prop_byname failed: error 2060046
Invalid server information for type DataDomain server xxxx-dd890-1.

Do I need to reinstall DD plugin ?
I found the issue , it is connection issue (not able to ping from new media server to DataDomain storage. I fixed it, it works well now. thank you for suggestion.
