Setting up SSO overview

This overview includes an outline of the steps for setting up access to a drive that is shared between NDMP and NetBackup servers.

For a more complete discussion of SSO, refer to the NetBackup Shared Storage Guide.

This procedure assumes the following:

  • That the prerequisites for SSO have been met, as described in the NetBackup Shared Storage Guide.

  • That all physical devices, including the NDMP host, are correctly connected to the network.

  • That NetBackup for NDMP supports the NDMP host.

    A document that lists supported NAS systems is available.

    See NDMP information on the Web

    The NetBackup NDMP Compatibility List indicates which versions of vendor software support SSO for NDMP. The NAS systems (hardware) do not provide the support; the proper software version provides it.

To set up an SSO

  1. Configure NetBackup access to the NDMP host.

    See Authorizing NetBackup access to the NDMP host

  2. Verify that the NDMP host can access the required robots and drives.

    To verify NDMP host access to the required devices, run the following commands on a NetBackup media server that is authorized to access the host:

    tpautoconf -verify ndmp_host_name
    tpautoconf -probe ndmp_host_name

    The -verify option verifies that the NetBackup server can access the NDMP host. The -probe option lists the devices that are visible to the NDMP host.

  3. From the NetBackup Administration Console, use the Device Configuration Wizard to configure the devices and storage units.

    See Using the NetBackup Device Configuration Wizard

    An NDMP storage unit must be defined for each NDMP host that shares a drive. If all hosts have access to the shared drive(s), the Device Configuration Wizard can create these storage units automatically.
