Netbackup Media Server and Clients behind firewall segregating Master Server
First Environment overview:
Main Netbackup Master server running Netbackup 188.8.131.52 (Windows)
5 Netbackup Media Servers running 184.108.40.206 (RHEL 6)
Small "remote" master server running 7.5 (RHEL 6)
Now the small "remote" master server is not that remote, but in the same DC behind a firewall on a separate private LAN segment to the main Master Server.
For this exercise lets call the main Master server Master A and the Small master server Master B.
Master B is also acting as a Media Server to serve the small amount of clients on that specific private range (10.56.x.x).
Master B is replicating all backup images and jobs to Master A via Netbackup AIR.
It seems overly complex, the reason for this is the firewalling and IP addressing.
Master A sits on (196.x.x.x) public range as well as the six media servers.
Master B sits on a private range.
The reason for this setup is that Master A cannot contact the clients sitting on a private range behind a single NAT, the customer does not have enough public IP's to do one to one Natting to their private IP clients.
So after all of that, is there anyway i can get Master A to use Master B as a "proxy" type of media server. Say convert Master B into a media server and then let all backups run via the Media server sitting on the private range. Master B also has two NIC's one with a private address (10.56.x.x) and a Public of (196.x.x.x).
