Welcome to the NetBackup Support Screencast Demo Video series.
These videos deliver how to demonstrations in a variety of NetBackup functions.
They assume fundamental NetBackup knowledge.
If you need basic netbackup training, please go to where you will be able to find a listing of instructor-led classroom training as well as self-paced computer-based courses for NetBackup.
This video is Installing the NetBackup 7.0 Client on Windows.
For this demonstration, we will be installing a NetBackup 7.0 client, running on Windows 2008 R2. The information in this demo can also be applied to all supported versions of Windows under NetBackup 7.0.
This video does not apply to:
Non-Windows Platforms
NetBackup versions other than 7.0
It does not cover how to apply patches.
Please check the NetBackup compatibility lists to confirm support for the specifics of your system.
The NetBackup client install media could either be a downloaded package, or DVD-ROM. For this demonstration, we will be using the DVD-ROM. If we were using a downloaded package, we would want to ensure the install files were made available to the client machine we are installing the NetBackup client on. 
The NetBackup 7.0 download can be obtained via Fileconnect at
First, we make sure that the NetBackup install media is loaded in the DVD-ROM drive of the machine. If the NetBackup Home menu does not come up automatically, we can open Computer and double click on the DVD-ROM drive icon. Either the NetBackup Home menu will launch, or Windows Explorer will open for the DVD-ROM contents. If a Windows Explorer window has opened for the DVD-ROM contents, then we would double-click on Browser.exe to launch the NetBackup Home menu.
In the Home menu, we click on Installation on the left-hand side. In the Installation menu, we click on Client Software Installation. This will launch the client install process, which starts with the Welcome screen. We click Next to continue to the License Agreement screen. Please review the contents of the license agreement. If you agree with the contents, please click the radio button to accept the terms of the license agreement and then click Next.
On the Install Type screen, we can choose to either install to the local computer or install to other computers on the network; as well as choose a Typical or Custom install. We will leave the defaults and click Next. On the System Names screen, we can set the Master Server and Additional ServersAdditional Servers are usually other stand alone NetBackup media servers in the NetBackup environment. We can configure them here, to make sure those media servers have permission to back up the client. Additional NetBackup media servers can be added later, however. We will configure the master server, and one additional media server, and then click Next to continue. On the Install screen, we see an Installation Summary. We click Install to begin the NetBackup client installation. The NetBackup client installation can take several minutes to complete, depending on your environment. 
On the Installation Complete screen, you can view the installation log file if you click the button. We won’t do that here but will instead click Finish to exit the installation dialog. We then click Exit to exit the NetBackup Installation menu.
We click on the Windows Start menu, then All Programs, to see the Symantec NetBackup program group created from the NetBackup client installation. This demonstrates that the installation has been successful.
