Netbackup 7.0 failing on W2K8 Exchange 2007 (x64) Clusters W/ Multiple NICs and a Private Backup network
I'm having a serious issue trying to get Netbackup 7.0 configured to run properly on a Windows 2008 / Exchange 2007 CCR Cluster environment. BTW, every Server has Eight (8) Network Cards, just to add alittle complexity to an already complex product. When I try to perform a VSS Exchange snapshot backup, the job fails multiple times, but will randomly complete successfully. It appears that Network may have something to do with this, but I have Host files deployed on each Media Server, and the Master Server. The Master Server Host File contains entries for all Media Servers (Server Name is entered identical as it appears in Production and DNS, but with the Backup Network Interface). The rest of the Media Servers contain a Host File with only the Master Server, against actual name, and IP for the Backup network. When I PING the Master Server from any Media Server, it answers with the correct Backup IP, and the same applies for the Master PINGing the Media Servers. Does anyone have any ideas?
and I am getting constant Errors in the Logs;
Here's a basic summary of my environment:
1 AD Domain
1 Exchange Organization
18 media Servers
18 Windows 2008 (x64) Clusters running Exchange 2007 (SP2, Rollup 4) CCR (Each Cluster node is configured with Eight (8) Network Cards. Here's the breakdown - 2 Node Clusters), Every Server is configued identically; I have Two (2) NICs teamed for Production, Two (2) Teamed for CCR Traffic, One (1) Backup Network, One (1) Management Network, and One (1) Security Network, and of course One (1) Heartbeat for the Clusters. Each Cluster Node is a Media Server
1 Master Server, which is configued with Two NICs, One (1) Backup, and One (1) Management. Note that they Backup Master Server is prohibited from talking over the production network for security reasons, and a requirement of my customer.
