This issue has been solved. See solution.

 

Hi,

i have configured appliance 5230 as a media server,

I have check BMR admin guide that the BMR option can be enabled from GUI if the appliance configured as master server,

what about if the appliance is configured as a media server?

 

Thanks

Thamer

have you a seprate Netbackup master server machine? if no then your media server is also a master server just edit bp.conf file and add the host name as a master server also.

You have a master server in your environment, right?

Only the master server can be BMR master.  Just follow steps in the BMR Admin Guide.

Hi ,

 

thanks for both of you,

yes i have sperate master server my appliance configured only as Media server ,

i got confised becouse i have seen in the admin guide that BMR cane be enable from the appliance if it is only configured as a master server , which is not my case,

All 'normal' rules apply to Appliances.

So, an appliances configure as master can be configured as BMR master, same as any other master.

Appliance configured as media server cannot be BMR master, same as any other media server. 

Use the BMR Admin Guide http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5163 to config BMR.

The topic Enabling BMR from the appliance GUI in the Appliance Admin Guide is therefore not applicable in your environment.
