Sharing the devices on an NDMP server between multiple media servers

If you use the Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option or the SAN Shared Storage Option, you can select which media servers can share the devices that are attached to an NDMP server. When you add an NDMP server, the media server that you used to add the server is automatically selected for sharing.

Note:

If you upgraded from an earlier version of Backup Exec, your existing configuration is preserved, so you do not have to set up sharing for existing configurations.

See About sharing storage.

To share the devices on an NDMP server between multiple media servers

  1. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

  2. In the Devices view, right-click the NDMP server that has the devices you want media servers to access.

  3. Select Manage sharing.

    The Manage sharing option appears only if you have the Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option or the SAN Shared Storage Option installed. You must also have more than one media server.

  4. Select the NDMP server that has the devices you want to share.

  5. Under Media Servers, select the media servers that you want to use with the devices that are attached to the selected NDMP server.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Restart the services on the media servers that you selected in step 5.
