This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

have read the Tech note mentioned in this post: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/solaris-11-netbackup-global-and-local-zones#comment-8416121.

Understand that Master Server in Solaris11 Zone in not supported yet.

Does anyone have a guess when it will be supported like with Solaris10 Zones.

It would help me with planning HW+SW.

Thanx,

hmmm, If I read it correctly :

 

Global Zone server support:
All NetBackup components supported with Solaris 11 physical media servers are supported in a Solaris 11 global zone. Backups can be performed in individual local zones, or by backing up the entire system from the global zone. 
 
Non-Global Zone server support:

NetBackup servers are not currently supported in either whole or sparse Solaris 11 non-global zones.

 

So if it is zoned it is supported.

I think the question here is - 'When will master be supported in non-global (local) Solaris 11 zone'?

Marianne is right. Thats exactly my question.

Maybe i couldnt express myself correctly (German guy).    ;-)

Does anyone have a clue ?

I'm planning for new HW and need to know if i put Solaris 10 or 11 on the boxes.

It will probably be best to get hold of your local Symantec SE, who will be able to get roadmap info from Product Managers.

Symantec will not publish roadmap info in a public forum.
