We have just added to our environment, a new NBU 220.127.116.11 Linux media server that sits behind a firewall.
The new media server is configured for SSO and has access to all SAN attached drives in-scope, emm server shows correctly, all drives show UP and robotic definition looks normal.
The NetBackup console shows the library connection for the new media server as NOT enabled and all associated tape drives are in AVR control.
We have popped some holes through the FW for port 1556 but I'm wondering if there are other ports required? Port 1556 is opened between the new media server, master server and the library control host which is also configured seperately.
The library is completely functional for everything except the new media server.
Any ideas what direction I should be looking in?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Remember the 1556 is the destination inbound port for pbx, the source port is usually in the non-reserved port range. Think the firewall/port guide does not describe this properly.
The problem can be that on dedicated firewalls you need to give both the source and destination ports.
I would talk with the firewall administrator and get him/her to see if there was any drops/blocked connections
