Implement Netbackup 6.5 using vnetd over public & private LANs
I'm trying to implement Veritas Netbackup 6.5 with one master server, 3 media server and a dozen of clients.
On the production LAN, I want to install the master server, a media server and a few clients.
In the DMZ, I want to install another media server and a few clients.
Another media server and a handful of clients will need to be installed on our reference (engineering/development) LAN.
The production LAN, reference LAN and DMZ are separated by firewalls which
will allow communication between all servers and clients over the vnetd port.
Netbackup control communication is allowed to pass through the firewalls.
User data (backups) should not be allowed to pass through the firewall but
should go to the media server in it's own LAN (in prod LAN, ref LAN or DMZ).
To limit the impact of backups/restores on the bandwidth/saturation of the public LAN (e.g. 20.30.x.x),
I'd like to send user data (backups) between the clients and the media servers over a private LAN (e.g. 192.168.x.x).
Would it be possible to implement this?
- Send all Netbackup control communication over the public network through the firewalls using vnetd.
- Send all Netbackup data (backups) between clients and media server over a private LAN.
Any hints, tips, user experience would be highly appreciated.
