Client Attributes properties on Windows

In the NetBackup Administration Console, the Client Attributes properties apply to the clients of currently selected master servers.

The Global client attributes property applies to all clients, unless overridden as described in the following table.

Table: Global client attributes group box

Attribute

Description

Allow client browse

Allows all clients to browse files for restoring. This attribute is overridden if the Browse and restore ability option on the General tab is set to Deny both for a particular client(s).

Allow client restore

Allows all clients to restore files. This attribute is overridden if the Browse and restore ability option on the General tab is set to Allow browse only or Deny both.

Clients

Specifies the list of clients in the client database on the currently selected master server(s). A client must be in the client database before you can change the client properties in the Client Attributes dialog box.

The client database consists of directories and files in the following directory:

If a client is not listed in the Clients list, click Add to add clients. To remove a client from the Clients list, select the client, then click Remove.

If a client is not listed in the Clients list, click Add to display the Add Client dialog box and add a client to the client database. Type a client name in the text box or click the browse button (...) and select a client.

See Add Client dialog box on Windows.

The name that is entered here must match the Client Name property for the specific client. If it does not, the client cannot browse its own backups.

See Client Name properties on Windows.

Use the bpclient command to add clients to the client database if dynamic addressing (DHCP) is in use.

Additional information about dynamic host names and IP addressing is available in the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume II.

General tab

Specifies how to configure the selected Windows master servers (clients).

See General tab of the Client Attributes properties on Windows.

Connect Options tab

Specifies how to configure the connection between a NetBackup server and a NetBackup client.

See Connect Options tab of the Client Attributes properties on Windows.

Windows Open File Backup tab

Specifies whether a client uses Windows Open File Backup. Also, specifies whether Volume Snapshot Provider or Volume Shadow Copy Service is used as the snapshot provider.
