Monitor > Appliance Hardware > Media Server

This view lets you monitor the hardware summary of appliance media servers that are monitored from the Symantec OpsCenter Analytics console. The view provides a quick visual cue to the hardware status.

Only appliance 1.2 and 2.0 media servers that are attached to appliance 2.0 master server or to a regular NetBackup 7.5 master server can be monitored from OpsCenter. Data collection from the appliance media servers takes place after every 15 minutes via NBSL. You can monitor any hardware failures in the appliance media servers that are monitored from the OpsCenter console.

Note that you cannot add an appliance media server directly to the OpsCenter console. You can add an appliance master server or a regular master server to which it is connected.

See Adding a master server or appliance in OpsCenter.

This view provides the information that is monitored for each piece of hardware in your NetBackup media appliance. The table displays the following details:
