Adding a media server to its own Client object's server list?
We're running Netbackup 7.5, mixed Windows and Unix clients. I mainly use the Admin Console for config.
We have numerous servers installed as Netbackup media servers. Most have DD Boost installed and are only intended to back themselves up. To make this happen we have run the command nbemmcmd -changesetting -MUST_USE_LOCAL_DRIVE Y on each media server. And this works ok.
Each media server also appears in the Clients list. Couldn't I achieve the same effect (forcing a media server to only back itself up) by configuring the Client's Server list so that only itself appears in the "Servers than can access the currently selected host" list?
So if ServerA is a media server but also has a client object, I would only add ServerA in the client obejct's Server list. Then no other medai server would be able to back it up.
Is there a downside to this - would it mean that the Master server wouldn't be able to remotely manage that media server?
Probably a crazy idea....
