Re: NBAC

Yes - edit bp.conf and change USE_VXSS = PROHIBITED then re-start Netbackup.

On windows :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\NetBackup\CurrentVersion\Config and update USE_VXSS to PROHIBITED

Makre sure ALL processes are stopped - incuding bpcd and vnetd that usally run even with Netbackup stopped.

Upgrading Netbackup also require NBAC to be disabled.

Re: NBAC

Hello Nicolai,

is there a documentation or KB mentioning NBAC deactivation during upgrades? I always have issues with console logins after upgrading NetBackup with NBAC, and in the end NBAC resets are usually required .

Re: NBAC

Reconfigure is different from reinstall, as well as reset, these terms sometimes confuse me... Smiley Happy 

Anyway, Nicolai has got you the solution to disable/enable the NBAC function.

I used to have technote links of "how to uninstall NBAC from NBU environment" but they didn't seem to work anymore... Veritas must have removed them from being public. These days you have to call in and get the support to uninstall it if you want to, the steps were quite complicated as i recalled and could cause issue if not performed correctly.

Re: NBAC

This was a recommendation from 7.1 until (at least) 7.5 - see link below. In NBU 8.x it seems that recommendation is removed.
