Enabling automatic media server failover to an alternate server

Normally, automatic media server failover is configured before the original media server fails.

On UNIX and Linux systems, when you configure this option, it sets the FAILOVER_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVERS parameter in the bp.conf file.

To enable automatic failover to an alternate server

  1. In the NetBackup Administration Console, open the Restore Failover host properties for the master server.

  2. Add an entry in the Alternate Restore Failover Machines list; name the media server and failover restore server(s).

  3. Stop and restart the NetBackup Request Manager daemon or service on the master server.
