does anybody know if it is possible to connect a client to my masterserver and restore a backup to it if this client is NOT in the domain?
So we could just restore a whole server without first to put the client into the domain.
Master: Windows 2016 NB 8.1.2
Your client will require the master server CA vertificate and client certificate to enable any NetBackup communications to occur. So the client needs to be added to the domain - it does not require a backup policy but does need to be added. If you don't create a policy, you will also probably need to create a token to enable the certificate to be created and added for the client.
If I've misunderstood and you mean Windows domain, then no there is no requirement for a client to be part of the Windows domain.
Futher to my previous reply - if you installed NetBackup 8.0 client software (or lower), then you could avoid the requirement for certificates - thus keeping the client off the NetBackup domain.
I kind of depends on what you are restoring whether this would work (but for a standard backup MS-Windows you should be okay).
Hi and thanks for the answers / questions.
No BMR, we install Windows on a client and the NB Client to restore a Server.
So its a restore from All local Drives.
Windows Domain, active directory.
Bckup Policy and client added to this is not a problem. We only have one masterserver so only one NB-Domain.
My question is targeting towards the ability to restore a "fresh" Windows Server only by installing the OS and a NB-Client and not adding this server to a windows-domain.
Please have a look at this article:
Although it was updated earlier this year, the doc is quite old and does NOT cover information about security certificates.
Note that this method is intended for disaster recovery - same hostname, same (or near identical) hardware.
To perform a successful restore to a machine with dissimilar hardware Veritas recommends the use of Netbackup Bare Metal Restore or Veritas System Recovery.
