We are on NB 188.8.131.52
We have a physical server that is a NB media server & is the i500 tape library controller/manager.
This physical server is running an unsupported windows OS version and needs to be replaced.
We have built a new physical server to replace it and that new server is in and working as a NB media server.
is there any documentation about replacing one physical NB media server with another one that has to
be the tape robot controller.
nbdecommission is the recommended way.
The documentation and post that I have referenced above explains that the robot should be physically connected to the new server (zoned or directly connected) and reconfigured in NBU.
When the media server can see the robot at OS-level, run the device config wizard and only select the robot control host and complete device config.
Run device config wizard again and select the rest of the media servers to correctly configure/update the robot control host.
I will delete my original reply to this post as I have totally misunderstood the requirement....
Many thanks for your input so far.
I get an error trying to assign a NB media server to a UNC path to a CIFS share on DD670.
Master Server = NetBackup 184.108.40.206 Windows 2008 R2 SP1
Media servers = NetBackup 220.127.116.11 Windows 2008 R2 SP1
I have read articles on the web regarding the NB services that need domain credentials & these were already applied.
The only media server that can access the storage units successfully, is due for decommission next week (that server is also the robotic control server).
Hoping you can help.
