Media Server Installation

Dear All,

Can you share the Media Server Installation Step-by-step. And how to configure media server in Master Server?

I have Installed Master Server on Windows 2008 R2 (NBU 7.5).

I have gone through some documents, which say media server needs only NBU Client installation? is it true.

 

Regards,

Mitesh

No - a media server needs a

No - a media server needs a server installation - the same as you did for the Master but this time select Media Server when you get to the screen where you put the license key in

When you get to the last screen make sure you set the master servers name correctly and also the EMM servers name (which will be your master server too)

It helps to add the new media server to the Master Servers host properties - Servers - Media Servers section and re-start its services before you start the Media Server installation

Hope this helps

You wil find the installation guides in the DOCS folder of the software you downloaded

Maybe this is what was confusing you:

The media server needs to have its client binaries also installed in addition to the media server binaries.

The Media Server has the same software installed as a Master Server.

I have gone through some documents, which say media server needs only NBU Client installation? 

Which ducumentation is saying that? Never seen that in any documentation in the 14 years that I've worked with NBU. 

Server software includes client binaries - not the other way round.

See NetBackup Installation Guide for Windows: http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5155

Thanks Guys for your

Thanks Guys for your sharing.

I got confuse between client binari & media server binari as stumpr2 said.

As per your instruction i have done the step, and successful done the media server installation & configuration in master server.

 

I have one more query.

Master Server and Media Server needs same OS. For example if the master is installed on Windows, then Media Server also needs to be on Windows or it can be windows or linux and viceversa.

No need for same OS. ANY

No need for same OS.

ANY combination of supported OS's can be used.

See NBU SCL: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76648

Only requirement is forward and reverse name lookup (DNS or hosts files) and port connectivity in both directions (port 1556).
