Configuring NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) for NetBackup pre-7.0 media server and client computers

Note:

This procedure is applicable only for NetBackup pre-7.0 media server and client computers. NetBackup release 7.0 and forward uses embedded clients.

You can use the following procedure to configure the NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) for NetBackup pre-7.0 media and client computers.

Configuring the NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) for NetBackup pre-7.0 media server and client computers

  1. Install the Authentication and Authorization client packages on the target computer.

    If the target computer is a NetBackup client, then install the authentication client only. If the target computer is a NetBackup media server, install both the authentication clients and authorization clients.

    You can choose to install both the client binaries and server binaries on the target computer, but there is no need to configure the servers. You need to install the authentication packages and authorization packages that are available on the Infrastructure Common Services (ICS) DVDs shipped with the older NetBackup media. The authentication binaries and authorization binaries available with NetBackup 7.5 may not be compatible with the older NetBackup media servers or clients.

    On UNIX platforms, use the installics utility to install the authentication packages and authorization packages.

    On Windows, use VxSSVRTSatSetup.exe and VRTSazSetup.exe.

    Please refer to the older NetBackup documentation for more details on how to install authentication and authorization clients.

  2. Run bpnbaz -setupmedia from the master server and provide passwords for pre-7.0 media servers.

  3. Set up the proper access control host properties for the target media server or the client host.

    See Accessing the master server and media server host properties. for the media servers. See Accessing the client host properties. for the clients.

  4. Restart the NetBackup process on the target media server or the client computer.
