Netbackup Services

Level 3


We are using Netbackup 773 Windows Master and Media server. When am stopping netbackup services i used to stop services on media servers first then finally i will bring down on Master server.

After the maintenance activity, should start the netbackup services on Master server first or Media server. What is the impact if i start the services on media server first then Master server.

Please explain the impact.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter.

technically, I'd start the media server first, that way the master isn't going to wonder where the media server is when it starts up.

Its good practice if 

1) you stop the services on media or robot conrtrol host ( if robot is zone to media server)  and then Master server.

2) you start the services on media or robot control host and then master server ( as EMM and catalog resides on master)
