About multiple masters that share one Enterprise Media Manager host

Multiple master servers can share one EMM database that is located on a single host. The host that contains the EMM database can be either a master server or a media server.

The Servers host properties must be set up to allow multiple master servers to access the EMM host.

In the following example, three master servers share one EMM database that is located on one of the servers (meadow).

Table: Server entries example describes the bp.conf server entries on each master server in the example:

Table: Server entries example

Meadow

Havarti

Study

SERVER = meadow

SERVER = havarti

SERVER = study

SERVER = havarti

SERVER = meadow

SERVER = meadow

SERVER = study

CLIENT_NAME = havarti

CLIENT_NAME = study

CLIENT_NAME = meadow

EMMSERVER = meadow

EMMSERVER = meadow

EMMSERVER = meadow


SERVER entries are as follows:

  • The first SERVER entry must be the name of the master server.

  • In order for the NetBackup Administration Console to administer other servers, the servers must be listed. (File > Change Server.)

  • If the EMM database is on another master server, that server needs to be listed. The table shows how meadow is listed on havarti and study.

The EMMSERVER entry must be present on all master servers that share the EMM host. The table shows how meadow is listed as the EMMSERVER on havarti, study, as well as on meadow.
