Solved! Go to Solution.
Best is to just copy and paste from notepad.
Also ensure that before you open the Admin console, that you right click and select "As an administrator" like Amol Nair said.
Can you perhaps send us a screenshot of what you're trying to do? Maybe you're hitting some chacter limitation, have you tried setting a test message?
I get exactly the same on 220.127.116.11 - there should be a LoginBanner.conf in netbackup\var\ but i cannot find out what values should be set in there!
Sounds like a bug to me - worth raising a call if you need this feature
I will keep digging - sure there is a workaround!
Just tested this on a 7.6 install and it works..
The LoginBanner.conf file gets created and populated like this:
But even when i make this file on my 7.5 it doesn't work - i will take a look to see if there is a registry change to enable it too
I was just about to put this method to create the file, but Mark beat me.
Since he mentioned that it did not work on 18.104.22.168, I thought of testing it on a few versions.
I have tested this on both 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 as well as 188.8.131.52 and it works pretty fine. Tested on both windows as well as unix machines.
Here are the contents of the LoginBanner.conf file for your referrence.
C:\Users\Administrator>more "\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\var\LoginBanner.conf"
LOGIN_BANNER.HEADING=This is the Banner Heading...
this is the baner contents...
If you are running the Netbackup Console from any other server other than the master server, then just ensure that you create the file on the master server and not on the machine that you are running the console from.
Windows: - "<install_path>\NetBackup\var\LoginBanner.conf"
Unix: - "/usr/openv/var/LoginBanner.conf"
I have also attached the LoginBanner.conf file from my machine if you would like to try.
Hope this helps.
Yeah, thanks Mark/Amol,
I tried this earlier, but it doesn't work. The contents of conf file was given as below, but as you know no luck.
The first line value 1 I set because I need confirmation check box to appear as well.
I checked registry deeply, and not able to find any key for Login banner.
As you said, it Seems to be a Bug.
But it is working on Windows2003 server not on Windows2008. So most likely the issue is with window2k8 platform
My machine is a Win 7 Pro SP1 64 bit laptop - it is a Master / Media Server with advanced disk, VTL and MSDP - I know what you are thinking but it is for my reference, testing and demonstrations only and comes in pretty handy!!!
No UAC or firewalls or anything on it either.
That's the same content I tried ealrier for the Banner in Windows2k8 server under install_dir\netbackup\var. But that doestn't work.
NetBackup is 184.108.40.206.
Configuration of server is given below.
OS Name: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
OS Version: 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
OS Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration: Member Server
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
System Manufacturer: HP
System Type: x64-based PC
Processor(s): 2 Processor(s) Installed.
Windows Directory: C:\windows
System Directory: C:\windows\system32
Network Card(s): 5 NIC(s) Installed.
I downloaded the file, and put it there. Rename it and remove _.txt from the name. But still no luck.
I will go to install the JAVA console and will try it there.
But this is working with netbackup nbconsole on windows2003 and other server, not sure what is wrong with win2k8 server.
