1. can i install both the master and media server on same or i do not need edia server as backup will be maintain in tape library

Vm sever does not support the tape library , so you need to have the Physical media server.

2. did i have to manage ports and which ports should be used f i go through manual instalation.

leave setting as default if you dont have mulitple networks

3 i provide the same name of master server to the server in which i am installing but still have the both issue. also it shows 2 names "nbumaster" and  "nbuserver (actual host server name)" through which i have to login

where it is showing the both names? and what is the name that you have given when you were installing the netbackup software?

are you able to ping the hostname that you have given?

are you able to ping the server NBUserver ?

does it have valid IP address?

see if you can ping the NBUserver  , if not you need to make sure it has valid IP address associated and connected to network.

This is not compatibility

This is not compatibility issue. Just straight forward hostname lookup. Test forward and reverse name lookup at OS level. Ensure connectivity on pbx port in both directions and that the master server has a Server entry for the Remote Admin Console hostname. Restart NBU on the master after adding Server entry. PS: You can find links to all compatibility lists in Handy NBU Links in my signature.

My apologies. Seems your master cannot resolve own hostname an IP. Have another look at Ram's post. Ensure UAC is disabled or else remember to always open the GUI with Run as Administrator. Test own hostname lookup with 'bpclntcmd -self' from cmd. Command is in ...netbackup\bin.

Netbackup servvies does not start, unless you have the active NIC card..

it will show you the same if you would have run the pre validation test.

you need to have the IP address assigned to it and interface should be up.

since you are using in Vmware, you can enable the teaming and get the interface working..

Thanks for your guidance now i have to vanished all teh settings and move it to physical machine.

 

and now issue has been resolved

further now i am providing maunual credentials with local domain.

you no need to provide any

you no need to provide any credentials if you leave it as default..it will run as local admin..

and does not matter what user ID you used to connect/login to the server.. but it will always run as local admin.
