Netbackup Java gui console running with user level permissions

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello ,

I have a Master server running 7.5.0.6 is DMZ . I am trying to  run the Java gui console on my HP laptop via xwindows. I  tried using xming and cygwin-X to access the Java gui. THe Xwindows is working fine.

The way I use is I login thru putty session to a linux box and than run ssh -X to the Master server running on SOlaris to DMZ and from DMZ master server I run jbpSA th ejaav gui console gets displayed when I login it  opens with user level permissions , although I  have admin level permissions defined in auth.conf file.

I tried Cygwin -X as well to login to the DMZ master server via Xterm but same result the Java gui console opens with user level permissions.

Whaat login are you using in the Java WIndow? Can you put the contents of /usr/openv/java/auth.conf from the master server here?

Try running jnbSA instead

jbpSa is the Backup and restore console. jnbSa is the full administrator's console

I would recommend installing the Java console on your laptop.

jnbSA via x-windows is unlikely to work correctly.  You will find that some mouse actions are not properly replicated with drop downs for example.

This is in fact due to how x-windows works, or to be fair, how individual x-windows products work.  xming is, in my experience not great, but other products, for example Xceed) my work better.

This 'issue' has been via NBU Engineering in the past, it cannot be fixed, as the issue is with x-windows, not NBU.

I agree with Andrew and Martin:

jbpSA – start BAR client interface on Java-capable UNIX machines
jnbSA – start NetBackup Administration Console on Java-capable UNIX machines
(taken from NBU Commands manual)

Best to install the Windows Java Console on your desktop.
You will find it in the NBU 7.5 Windows Installation Media under Addons.
