NetBackup 7.0 for VMWare Installation
We have a solaris cluster with NBU 6.5.6 installed. At the moment we backup all our VMs as standalone windows and linux machines. I'm currntly doing a POC setup whith NBU 7.0 to do snapshots backup for our VMs, which is much more efficient.
I downloaded 7.0, and didn't know where to get the licenses from, so I used the same licenses we used on 6.5.6 solaris machines. ran the installer and choose 'Master Server'. then next, next, next, etc. and everything is fine. and I can connect to the server using the java admin console just fine. I even was able to run a catalog backup job. but the thing that bothers me is going through Host Properties -> Master Servers -> MyServer -> properties, I don't see any option for vmware .
now to install the VMWaer Backup Host, my questions are:
- from the installer, what option should I choose? 'Server Software Installation' or 'Client Software Installation'? choosing client gives an error saying you cannot install this on the master server. and installting 'Client Software' on a seperate VM will only install the windows and MS SQL clients. so it has to be the 'Server Software Installation'
- What licnese should I use? the documentation states 'Enterprise Client License'. I don't have that written anyware at my work. Is there a way I can view this from Symentec website? or atleast is there a way I get list\get that license from my 6.5.6 solaris setup?
- and after I figure this, what option do I choose? 'Master Server' or 'Media Server'?
