Adding the VMware backup host to NetBackup

Use this procedure to enable a NetBackup client as the backup host.


This procedure is not needed for media servers that operate as backup hosts with the policy Backup Media Server option. With that option, NetBackup automatically enables media servers as backup hosts.

In the NetBackup Administration Console, do the following.

To add the VMware backup host

  1. Click Host Properties > Master Servers, double click the NetBackup master server, and click VMware Access Hosts.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Enter the fully qualified domain name of the VMware backup host, and click Add.

  4. When you are finished adding hosts, click Close.

  5. Click Apply and then OK.

  6. If the NetBackup master server is clustered in a failover environment: repeat this procedure to add the backup host to each master server node in the cluster.
