The following procedure describes how to configure NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) on media servers in a NetBackup configuration. These steps are needed for media servers that are not co-located with the master server.
Configuring access control on media servers
It is recommended to do a dry run of the configuration first, with the -dryrun option. It can be used with both -all and a single server configuration. By default, the discovered host list is written to the file
SetupMedia.nbac. You can also provide your own output file name using the -out <output file> option. If you use your own output file, then it should be passed for the subsequent runs with the -file option. The dry-run command would look something like the following:
Note that the -all option updates all of the media servers seen each time it runs. If you want to run it for a selected set of media servers, can you do it. Keep only the media server host names that you wanted to configure in a file, and pass that file using the -file option. This input file would either be SetupMedia.nbac or the custom file name you provided with the -out option in the previous dry run. For example, you may have used: - bpnbaz -SetupMedia -file SetupMedia.nbac.
