Simple steps to add a node to netbackup cluster

On new node install VCS:

Configure the fowling files




Setup ssh keys between nodes

If the cluster has fencing you need to enable it

Copy /etc/vxfenmode

Run /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/ -clus -copy -from_sys … -to_sys …

Or copy /etc/vx/.uuids/clusuuid


Adding the new node to the cluster:

haconf -makerw

hasys -add fmg-bkm1

copy /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/

Adding to Netbackup service group:

On active node

Cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/cluster

./cluster_config -s nbu -o add_node –n …

Copy /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/cluster/NBU_RSP to the new node (if the script didn’t)

Failover to new node
