path for disaster recovery when using the appliance as master server
Hi All ,
firstly :I was confused where to ask this question here or in appliance forum.if it should be there so may i will ask it again there!!!
when we creating catalog backup policy we adding the path of disaster recovery as example : d:\disaster recovery. but when using an appliance as master server what is the recommended path (i'm ruuning the admin console in linux machine) .I believe it shoulde be some where in side the appliance.please advice
OK - the DR file is best kept
OK - the DR file is best kept on a alternative server rather than on the Master Server - this is because you need the DR file in the event of a disater at which time your Master may no longer exist.
So select another server somewhere (preferably off site) and create a new share on it and then in the catalog policy just use a UNC path to that share for the location of the DR file, along with any required authentication.
Fir the DR e-mail add the smtp server and email address to be used via the CLISH on the appliance (or maybe the GUI but don't have one to hand this week to double check) and the e-mail for the catalog should then work.
The "Software" share is only used for the appliance itself for uploading its patches
For NetBackup client software the appliance should have a pre-enabled shares named "install" and "inst/client" that contains the clients.
So for Windows clients from the client just go to \\appliancename\install and run the quickinstall.exe that is located in that share.
For unix clients, on the client, map a drive (nfs share) to \\appliancename\inst\client and run the unix-client-install script from that location
Once installed open the clients bp.conf and add the appliance Master name etc. as this does not get automatically populated
There are also links on the home page of the appliance web gui to access the software
Hope this helps
