Property

Description

BPCD connect back

Specifies how daemons are to connect back to the NetBackup Client daemon (BPCD) and contains the following options:

  • Use default connect options

    Uses the value that is defined in the Firewall host properties of the client's NetBackup server.

    See Firewall properties on Windows.

  • Random port

    NetBackup randomly chooses a free port in the allowed range to perform the legacy connect-back method.

  • VNETD port

    NetBackup uses the vnetd port number for the connect-back method.

Ports

Specifies the method that the selected clients should use to connect to the server and contains the following options:

  • Use default connect options

    Uses the value that is defined in the Firewall host properties of the client's NetBackup server.

    See Firewall properties on Windows.

  • Reserved port

    Uses a reserved port number.

  • Non-reserved port

    Uses a non-reserved port number.

Daemon connection port

Specifies the method that the selected clients should use to connect to the server and contains the following options.

  • Use default connect options

    Uses the value that is defined in the Firewall host properties of the client's NetBackup server.

  • Automatic

    Connects to the daemons on the server using vnetd if possible. If the daemons cannot use vnetd, the connection is made by using the daemon's legacy port number.

  • VNETD only

    Connects to the daemons on the server by using only vnetd. If the firewall rules prevent a server connection using the legacy port number, check this option.

    When selected, the BPCD connect back setting is not applicable.

    In addition, the Ports setting uses Non-reserved port, regardless of the value selected.

  • Daemon port only

    Connects to the daemons on the server by using only the legacy port number.

    This option only affects connections to NetBackup 7.0 and earlier. For connections to NetBackup 7.0.1 and later, the veritas_pbx port is used.
