Solution



Overview:
This Technote gives a step by step guide to running the NetBackup Device Configuration Wizard (GUI). This consists of a number of steps which are shown below.

Step 1:

On the NetBackup Administration Console GUI, go to  Master Server > Configure Storage Devices

See figure 1 and Figure 2.


Figure 1.  Starting the Device Configuration Wizard

Step 2:  Click Next


Step 3:  Select the server(s) you wish to configure the device on.  If the robot control host is on a separate server then you must select this also, otherwise the drives will be configured in AVR mode.

In this example, womble is the server we wish to configure the devices on and the robot control host.  Once this is complete, click Next

See figure 3.

Step 4:  

Wait while NetBackup scans the server(s) for devices.  Once this is complete click Next

See figure 4.

Step 5:  Click Next

See figure 5.

Step 6: Confirm NetBackup has found all the expected devices.  Click Next

See figure 6.

Step 7:


Occasionally, drives that should appear in the robot can be marked as stand alone.    If necessary, drag-and-drop any drives that are standalone into the robot.  Once completed, click Next.

See figure 7.

Step 8:  Confirm configuration changes by clicking Next.  Please note that this will restart Media Manager processes on the server(s) so should not be done if the media server is running backups.

See figure 8 and Figure 9.
