Netbackup access via Java Windows Admin Console

Created: 25 Mar 2014 • Updated: 26 Apr 2014 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


We have a number of DBAs who will need access to Netbackup console to manage Oracle restores. Currently only a few Windows engineers administer Netbackup by Remote desktop directly to the master server (Win 2008 R2 NB7.5.0.5). 

We have a Windows 2003 box in general use by support teams via Citrix and I'm hoping I can install the Java Windows Admin Console onto it for these DBAs to use. That server is not a Netbackup media server or client (it will eventually be a client as Netbackup is rolled out). 

Will this work? What level of access will these users have to Netbackup - full control? 

I have looked at the pdf for setting up NBAC and it looks dauntingly complex. Is NBAC required to provide this sort of access?

you can install the netbackup Java console on the windows server and provide only access to the Backup archive & restore window for specific uses...

refer the below tech note

All  of the Oracle dba's at our customers are using rman from cmd to do restores.

Oracle restores need to be initiated from the client itself. Not sure why they would need access to the master server console?

Hi Marianne,

Actually just checked, it's not for Oracle DBAs but for our 24 hour operators team to monitor backups. 

Oracle DBAs do occasionally need to access the console because the customer has two sites connected by WAN and sometimes backups from one site need to be restored to the other. We have a Data Domain box on each site and in that scenario they would need to restore from the secondary rather than the primary backup to stop the restore travelling over the WAN. So they need to access the console to identify the secondary media id.
