Netbackup 7.5 for RHEL 5 and MY SQL backup.

Created: 18 Feb 2013 • Updated: 03 May 2013 | 7 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

We  have the following servers and application:-

1. PostFix Mail on RHEL 5

2. Web server on RHEL (apache).

3. MY SQL on RHEL 5

4. SQUED Proxy on RHEL.

We are planning to install NETBACKUP 7.5 to take backup.

Postfix and other server will be taken as "Standered" backup.

Is there any solution for MY SQL database.

I got some link that MY SQL can be backed up using "ZAMANDA" agent.

Correct about MySql.
We have in the past referred you to NBU compatibility guides. If you don't have a recent copy of Application and Database matrix, please find links in 'Handy NBU Links' in my signature.

Hi,

Can we be able to test this setup before live deploy.

Zmanda says that thay have two interface to take MYSQL backup:-

1. ZMANDA agent for MYSQL.

2. ZMANDA Recovery Manager.

Any ideas how to configure each of this setup to take the backup.

Thanks

I have never experienced both, but looking on ZMANDA's site, ZMANDA Recovery Manager(ZRM) is individual backup product that does not work in conjunction with NetBackup.

If you want to get benefit from existing strong NetBackup infrastructure, you should choice agent for MYSQL.

Have you contacted ZMANDA yet? As they supply the agent, you should also be able to obtain HOWTO documentation from them.

Hi,

You can take online mysql backup with Nbu 7,5. We applied this configuration and could take backup.

You can find link below about test scenario. firstly you install Meb on mysql server and link to nbu.
