So, I am reading that a Microsoft clustered Netbackup server can be 2 virtual machines, which is great.
1st Question: Anyone doing this today? How is the performance / support? How large is your environment? Any issues?
2nd Question: Is D/R recovery handled any different? Today, we need to bring up a clustered Windows server, then install NB and import the catalog. With this new VMware master, can you just turn on a backed up VMDK? What if we move to a non clustered environment - Single master? Can we just turn up a restored VMDK?
1st : I already installed a Master Server in a virtual machine. There were no issues with performances, but it depends of the activity of your server, and number of clients.
2nd : I am not a VMWare export but it is not easier to use VMWare HA instead of a complex cluster system ? You can use Symantec Application HA to monitor services of your master if you want.
