Installing the PDDO plug-in on a clustered NetBackup media server

The following procedure explains how to install the PDDO plug-in on a clustered media server in general terms.

Note:
Remember to use the media server’s local host name instead of it cluster virtual name for the installation and configuration.

  2. On the active media server, install the PDDO plug-in and establish a connection between the active media server and the storage pool.

    Use the procedures in one of the following platform-specific topic:

    About installing the PDDO plug-in on a NetBackup Linux media server or a NetBackup Solaris SPARC media server

    or

    Performing an attended installation of the PDDO plug-in on a Windows media server

  3. On the active media server node, configure the PDDO plug-in in NetBackup.

    Use the procedures in the following topic:

    About configuring the PDDO plug-in in NetBackup

  4. Failover the NetBackup service group to another node.

  5. Install the PDDO plug-in on the node to which you failed over.

    Use the procedure in one of the following platform-specific sections:

  6. Establish a connection between the failover media server node and the storage pool.

    Use the procedure in one of the following platform-specific sections:

    When you complete these procedures, examine the configuration messages in step 6.

    These messages are different for the failover media server node. You can expect the output to be similar to the following:

    /opt/pdag/bin/pddocfg.sh: INFO: "pdregister --action register"  completed successfully
    
    Mon Apr  7 2008 17:30:32.334909 INFO  (4153009856): Dataselection has been created.
    
    /opt/pdag/bin/pddocfg.sh: INFO: "pdregister --action createds" completed successfully
    
    Failed to create storage server storageserver.acme.com, cannot connect on socket
    
    /opt/pdag/bin/pddocfg.sh: ERROR: "nbdevconfig -creatests" failed

    You can disregard the Failed to create storage server message because you already created the storage server on the other node when it was active.

    You do not need to complete the remainder of this procedure. It directs you to logon to the Web UI and verify the presence of the PDDO client and data selection.
