Ops Center Installation

I have installed Netbackup 7.6.0.3 on Master server (on windows 2012 which comes as a full installer) ,  now I want to install ops center on master server.

I am not sure I should first install 7.6.0.1 and then upgrade or directly I can Install 7.6.0.3 ?

Please suggest.

If that's your Master then

If that's your Master then you have (both for supportability and for system loading) to install OpsCenter on another box.

The OpsCenter Agent is just the little shim that OpsCenter uses to talk to the Master.  It does need to be installed on the Master.

But the rest of OpsCenter (OpsCenter Server) will have to be installed on another box.  It doesn't need to be a NetBackup related box (a Media Server for instance) but does need to have its own home.  If you have a VM farm then OpsCenter would live nicely on a VM since it only needs network connections to your Master(s).

 

Box1:

NetBackup Master

OpsCenter Agent

Box2:

Opscenter Server (which you can turn into OpsCenter Analytics with the right license key)

Are you trying to install the

Are you trying to install the OpsCenter Agent or full OpsCenter?

Symantec doesn't recomend putting both Master and full OpsCenter on the same box.  If you have a small backup ecosystem (say less than 15 boxes) and/or a really hefty Master (say 30 cores and at least 120G RAM) then you might get away with it...for awile...

OpsCenter will monitor the

OpsCenter will monitor the Media Server through the Master.  So nothing needs to be done with it.

And yes, OpsCenter is a reporting, alert, and analysis system.  It can help you find out how things are going, alert you when certain things happen, and send those alerts out via email or SNMP.

On your Master you'll need to

On your Master you'll need to install OpsCenter Agent 7.6.0.1 and then the 7.6.0.3 OpsCenter Agent patch.

On your OpsCenter box you'll need to install OpsCenter Server 7.6.0.1 and then the 7.6.0.3 OpsCenter Server patch also.
