The following are the tasks for the NetBackup administrator:
Install the NetBackup 7.6 master server and media server. Add the NetBackup 7.6 Enterprise Client license on the master server.
See the NetBackup 7.6 Installation Guide.
Symantec recommends that the NetBackup media server and the Hyper-V server be installed on the same host. For alternate client off-host backup, install the media server on the alternate client host.
Install a NetBackup 7.6 or later client on the Hyper-V server. Only one NetBackup client is required on each Hyper-V server. As an option for restore, a client may be installed on a virtual machine.
Add the name of the NetBackup master server to the client's server list. In the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, click. Add the master server to the list.
