The following table describes the media server verification procedures for a mixed UNIX master server.
Table: Verification procedures for a mixed UNIX master server
Verify the UNIX media server
See UNIX media server verification. for the verification procedure for a UNIX media server.
Verify the Windows media server
Check that the computer certificate comes from the root authentication broker, which is found on the UNIX master server (unix_master).
If there is a missing certificate, run the following commands to correct the problem:
bpnbat -whoami -cf "C:\Program Files\Veritas\Netbackup\var\vxss\credentials\ win_media.company.com" Name: win_media.company.com Domain: NBU_Machines@unix_master.company.com Issued by: /CN=broker/OU=root@ unix_master.company.com/O=vx Expiry Date: Oct 31 20:11:04 2007 GMT Authentication method: Veritas Private Security Operation completed successfully.
Verify that a media server is permitted to perform authorization lookups
Ensure that the media server is allowed to perform authorization checks by running bpnbaz -listgroups -CredFile.
bpnbaz -listgroups -CredFile "C:\Program Files\Veritas\Netbackup\var\vxss\credentials\ win_media.company.com" NBU_User NBU_Operator NBU_Admin NBU_Security Admin Vault_Operator Operation completed successfully.
If the media server is not allowed to perform authorization checks, run bpnbaz -allowauthorization on the master server for the media server name in question.
Unable to load library message
Verify the Windows media server and that it can perform authorization checks indirectly. This verification informs us that the NetBackup Authentication and Authorization client libraries for both authentication and authorization are properly installed. If either of these procedures fail with a message "unable to load libraries," make certain the authentication client libraries and authorization client libraries are installed.
Verify authentication domains
Verify that the authentication domains are correct by viewing the access control host properties for this media server.
You can also use regedit (or regedit32) directly on the media server in the following location:
Cross platform authentication domains
Take extra care in mixed environments to ensure that the appropriate domain types point to the correct authentication brokers.
The example Authentication domain tab shows available authentication Windows domains that can be added to the Windows broker. In this case, it is not a mixed environment as both systems are Windows based. If there were a combination of Windows and UNIX domains it is important to match the brokers to the most useful authentication domains.
See Figure: Cross platform authentication domains. for a display on how to match the platform to the most useful authentication domains.
