Install Simplivity Arbiter on same server as Master server

Level 4

Hello experts,

I have a client that has 1 VMware cluster managing 2 HPE simplivity nodes. Currently the Arbiter is hosted withing the simplivity cluster but as per HPE recommendation, it is required to run the Arbiter outside the cluster. The client also has a physical server (out the cluster) hosting the NetBackup (8.2) master/media server.

My question is: Is it Okay to install the Arbiter on the same server as Master/Media server? Will it affect NetBackup in any way?

For more info on Arbiter, open the following link.

Thanking you in advance.
