Configuring credentials for CIFS and disk storage units
For Common Internet File System (CIFS) storage and AdvancedDisk and BasicDisk storage units, two NetBackup services on Windows computers require matching credentials. The following NetBackup services on Windows media servers to which the CIFS storage is attached must use the same credentials:
NetBackup Client Service
The NetBackup Client Service is either bpcd.exe or bpinetd.exe, depending on NetBackup release level. Regardless of the binary file name, the service requires the credentials.
CIFS storage is supported for AdvancedDisk on NetBackup 7.0.1 and later.
NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service
The NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service binary file name is nbrmms.exe.
The credentials must be valid Windows credentials that allow read and write access to the storage. Configure the credentials on the media server to which the CIFS storage is attached.
If credentials are not configured, NetBackup marks all CIFS AdvancedDisk and BasicDisk storage units that use the UNC naming convention as DOWN.
To configure credentials for CIFS with AdvancedDisk and BasicDisk
In Windows, in the Microsoft Management Console, open Services.
How you open Services depends on the Windows version.
Open the Properties dialog box for the service.
The General tab should be displayed.
Click to stop the service.
Select the Log On tab.
Select and then enter the credentials.
Select the General tab.
Click to start the service.
Repeats the steps 2 to 7 for each service.
