Generally, the implementation of Sybase SQL Anywhere in the NetBackup catalog is transparent. NetBackup installs Sybase SQL Anywhere during the master server installation as a private, non-shared server for the NetBackup database (NBDB). NBDB contains the NetBackup Authorization database, the Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) data, as well as other NetBackup data that NetBackup services use.
The same installation of Sybase SQL Anywhere is used for the optionally-licensed product, Bare Metal Restore (BMR) and its associated database (BMRDB). The BMR database is created during the BMR installation process.
By default, the NetBackup relational database (NBDB) is installed on the master server. The master server is also the default location for the Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) server. Since EMM is the primary user of NBDB, the NetBackup database always resides on the same computer as the Enterprise Media Manager.
