Multiple OpsCenter for one master

At this time I only need a simple yes or no answer.  I'll worry about the details later if we go down this road.  We provide backup services to a wide array of external companies.  We have a site with one of our owned NBU masters, and the customer wants to know if they can pull data from it into their own OpsCenter server.  I can see we have OPS_CENTER_SERVER_NAME = opscenter already in the bp.conf file.  So we're pulling data from our OpcCenter server.  Can you have two of these entries?  for example:

OPS_CENTER_SERVER_NAME = opscenter_one

OPS_CENTER_SERVER_NAME = opscenter_two

 

Thanks in Advance.

John

You can do it, but it wont

You can do it, but it wont behave like you would expect. For example jobs that get collected by one opsCenter server will be missing from the other and the other way around.

 

Source: I did this on Netbackup 7.0.1 while testing a new version of OpsCenter we were going to deploy. Didn't realize it was not supported, quickly found out why :cathappy:

Why not mail out to customers

Why not mail out to customers with "their" backup info, ie a bunch of specfic custom reports and mail targets? Work for you I guess, potentially a lot of work. Jim

Re: Why not mail out to customers

Similar John's question, could we have NetBackup masterA reports to its main OpsCenter1.

Would it be possible to have a top-level OpsCenter2 collect NetMasterA from OpsCenter1?

NetBackup MasterA would only report to one OpsCenter as a result
