Hello, we would like to create a VM template with netbackup 7.7.3 client installed, so that Windows (2008R2/2012R2 and Linux (Redhat) servers are created with this client in the future.
It is possible? If so, will it only be necessary to change the client's name or any other information?
Thank you !!!
Hello Eduncan! Thank you for your help! Is the Client Name value referenced in the registry? If so, what is the path within Regedit?
If I understood correctly your questiom, the answer is : yes.
Take a look
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Veritas > NetBackup > CurrentVersion > Config > Client_Name ( register -type REG_SZ)
Hope it can help you.
You don't have to logon to the new client to:
i) Windows: change client_name in registry or change client name via GUI
ii) Unix/Linux: use a text editor to change client_name in bp.conf
...instead what you can do after your VM has been created from template, is you can use your master server (or another SERVER) of the client, and tell the client what its new name is:
(echo client_name = your.new.name) | nbsetconfig -h your.new.name
