Bare Metal Restore

Created: 20 Nov 2012 | 1 comment

Hi friends

I have Master Server(Linux) with Symantec Netbackup 7.0.1 and client machine with netbackup 7.0 installed. I want to perform bare metal restore on my client machine.

Following steps were followed on client machine

Enable tftp

vi /etc/xinetd.d/tftp

Set disable=yes to disable=no

Start the service /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

Register Boot Server(on client) with BMR Master Server using /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsetupboot -register .

But after executing the command, I can't see the boot server of the client in Netbackup Console(Master Server), under Bare Metal Restore Management -> Hosts-> Boot Servers.

Kindly advice

Thank You

you need to run this command on the boot servers not on client(boot server and client both are different)

so make sure you have boot server in place. and then follow below commands

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsetupboot -register .

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/rc.bmrbd start
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/rc.bmrbd stop
for more details read the BMR admin guide
