You must install the Backup Exec SAN Shared Storage Option on the server that you want to designate as the primary server. You can then install the Backup Exec Shared Storage Option on other servers. The server containing the shared ADAMM database must be running before other media servers can be installed properly.
If the SAN Shared Storage Option has already been installed to the primary server, and you are installing to a secondary server, select Secondary and enter the name for the Backup Exec database server.
If you installed Backup Exec on the primary database server, restart the database server. You must ensure that Backup Exec discovers all your devices before loading Backup Exec on other servers. The server containing the shared ADAMM database must be running before other media servers can be installed properly.
The first time you run Backup Exec, use the Getting Started item in the Home view to configure environment settings. The Getting Started item provides a series of steps that you can follow to configure logon accounts, devices, and media sets. You should complete the applicable sections of this wizard as it guides you in preparing Backup Exec for operations. Setting the overwrite protection level is important since the media is shared throughout the SAN.
