netbackup SAN FT client for Solaris LDOMs
Trying to implement SAN FT Client. I had it set up on physical environments and it seems to work. So far the environment is 1 Solaris 10 Master, 4 Solaris Media Servers and a normal client (filesystem backup) and DB client. DB backup took 2 hours for 1 TB.
Much of our environment is on Solaris LDOM's and VMware. I would like to begin with Solaris LDOMs and havent found any document from Symantec that states that SAN FT client works for Sun Virtualization. So i tried configuring it.
Since the Control Domain of the LDOM (or Hypervisor) controls the resources, the guest LDOM's cannot see the target LUN's on the FT Media server (cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported)
I installed Netbackup on the parent LDOM and configured it as a SAN client, which shows up in the console. The guest LDOM has a standalone installation of netbackup client (so it is independent of parent server installation) and has SANCLIENT=1. It shows up as an FT client but has no FT devices configured?
I read the below technote and wonder if a Global Zone isntallation (SAN Client) can be linked to guest LDOM? But would DB backup work with Agent?
Any expert advise?
