The REQUIRED_INTERFACE entry specifies the network interface for NetBackup to use when it initiates new connections. These connections can be to another NetBackup client or server for user backups, database agent backups, and user restores.
By default, the operating system determines which interface to use if a client or server can use more than one interface. The REQUIRED_INTERFACE entry forces NetBackup to make connections through the specified network interface.
REQUIRED_INTERFACE is not used when NetBackup responds to a request that was not initiated over the required interface. In those cases, the operating system determines the network interface to use by default.
