NetBackup for PostgreSQL configuration

Hello,

I am trying to understand how to configure backups for PostgreSQL in NetBackup (reading the Veritas NetBackup™ for PostgreSQL Administrator's Guide).

Do I need to install the NetBackup for PostgreSQL agent as well as the regular NetBackup client software on the PostgreSQL server?

Thanks!

Re: NetBackup for PostgreSQL configuration

You need the NetBackup Client software as well on the database client. 

This is implied in the requirements before the agent is installed: 

Before you install, ensure that you meet the following prerequisites:
■ NetBackup 8.2 or later is installed and operational on the master server, media
server, and the client.

Yes, there is a separate plugin for postgres you need to download from the portal.

Hi Riaan,

Thanks for your reply. But it seems I didn't express myself correctly...

What I meant was do I still need to install the regular NBU client software on the PostgreSQL server? Or is the seperate NBU plugin for PostgreSQL enough for backups/restores?

Thanks!
