Hi All,

Im installing Netbackup in a blade working with logical domains, so my question goes like this:

Will NBU work fine? or i will have some limitations with the software?

If the OS can see with no problems the tape library, will NBU see it as well??

Thanks for the help

See this older thread  Solaris LDOM Master

All NetBackup components supported with Solaris SPARC physical servers are supported in a Solaris LDoms Control Domain with the exception of Bare Metal Restore (server or client). Guest domain support is limited to standard client, database agents, master server and disk media server.

Solaris 10 or 11 master?

The fact of media servers supported only for disk storage units, makes me wonder how the master would behave as the Robotic Control Host.

Currently our master under Solaris 10 (physical) manages the robotic library, so is the only one server (cluster) in the environment which sees the robotic arm. Rest of media servers share the drives using SSO.

Because of HW replacement, new master will be hosted in logical domains, Would we need to configure one of the physical media servers with the role of robotic control host?

In that case, how will you proceed in case of disaster of this Media server? I suppose that we can move the role to another server, right?

Thanks in advance.

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
