Any problems with deleting an IP address alias in NetBackup 7.5 EMM
I've found out that one of the three aliases in our NetBackup 7.5 EMM for our master server is the IP address of the master server. The other two entries are the shortname and FQDN for the master server. We have a need to change the IP address of the master server, and I'm concerned that if I delete the IP address alias from EMM, that I'll break something. What, if anything, could be tied to the IP address alias of the master server in EMM? Best practice, and common sense, dictate that you shouldn't have an IP address listed as an alias for a master server in EMM, and only have the hostname (shortname and FQDN). This makes an IP address change of the master server a "no-issue" since DNS should always be used to resolve hostnames. Would the IP address have been added during an upgrade process and just not cleaned up, or would someone have to manually enter the IP address alias into EMM? Any help you can provide will be appreciated.
