How to change host properties

The NetBackup properties can be changed to customize NetBackup to meet specific site preferences and requirements. In most instances, the NetBackup defaults provide satisfactory results. Host properties can be set for a single host or for multiple hosts all at one time.

One method to change the host properties is to use the NetBackup Administration Console. Another method is to first use the bpgetconfig command to obtain a list of configuration entries. Then use bpsetconfig to change the entries in the registry.

The commands are described in NetBackup Commands for Windows.

To change the properties of another client or server, the NetBackup server where you logged on using the NetBackup Administration Console must be in the Servers list on the other system.

For example, if you logged on to server_1 using the NetBackup Administration Console and want to change a setting on client_2, client_2 must include server_1 in its Servers List.

All updates to a destination host (unless it is the same as the host you logged on to using the NetBackup Administration Console) fail if the target host placed a check box in Allow server file writes on the Universal Settings properties.

See About the Universal Settings properties.
