Question regarding Netbackup Network Infrastructure
Hi all, this is my first time post after a lot of reading at this forum.
I´ve got a big question regarding Netbackup recommendations in terms of backup elements connections.
Our company is designing a future network environment, and our backup servers (medias and master) will be part of it obviously. This new architecture will consist basically on access switches and CORE switches.
We (backup team) were expecting that the master and media servers will be connected to the CORE switch as the storage items (tapes and disk) are.Our surprise is that NETWORKING TEAM idea is to connect Media and MASTER to the ACCESS switches.
We are sure that it will impact the performance of the backups and so we need any kind of documentation (I couldn´t find anything on symantec manuals, white papers, best practices but sure I´ve not read everything) or experiences to help us on convincing them as we won´t be able to make tests until the new network is deployed and it would be later.
Can anyone of you help me on this? Thanks in advance.
