Catalog Backup

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

I was reading the DR guide and found "If the EMM server is located on a remote computer, the NBDB database is

recovered on the remote computer"
 
Does it mean if we have a media server somewhere not with the master server and we restore full catalog backup on master server it will restore the media server as well? If not do we need to restore media server with catalog seperatly?
 
Could somebody tell me what in case Media server goes down that is separate to Master server?
 
Thanks,
Belse.

In theory EMM database can be installed on a separate server but nobody is doing it. Although it is still in the documentation, Symantec says that EMM database should be on the master.

So, ignore this piece in the manual. Your EMM server is also your master server. All your media servers 'belong' to the master and contain no databases/catalogs.

All databases are on the master server.

See NBU Admin Guide I for 'Parts of Netbackup Catalog'.

Hi Marianne,

Thanks for the useful information

So it means if media server goes down. Below should be the steps to rebuild it.

1:- OS prepare.

2:- Media server installation with patches

3:- Configure tape drives/ Library.

Pls let me know if i missed any steps.

Thanks,

Belse.

Correct.

Media server recovery has nothing to do with EMM and/or catalog recovery.
