Admin Console won't "Change Server"

Created: 01 Oct 2013 • Updated: 01 Oct 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have two netbackup domains with appliances, both at (2.5.3 for appliances)

1) a 5200 with a Windows 2008R2 master server
2) a 5220 acting as both master and media servers

In the Admin Console on my desktop, I can select either master server, and look at policies/activity/etc. However, from the Admin Console on the Windows master in "Domain 1" , if I put the DNS name of the 5220 and try to switch to it with the "Change Server" option as I do on my desktop, I get the message "The server is not a NetBackup master server or a NetBackup media server"., which is, actually, a lie, cause it's BOTH !!

Am I missing a setting somewhere or something?

Thanks for any pointers.

Never Mind...   I found this technet article:

put corresponding entries in the 5220 /etc/hosts file and on the windows master server and VOILA!  It does work. 

Sorry about not reading docs first..  frown
