Question Solaris 11 Global and Local Zones and Netbackup
New install of a Master Server and 2 media servers using Solaris 11 Zones Netbackup 188.8.131.52
Media Server ( Media_1 ) installed on a Global Zone
Master Server ( Master_1 ) installed on the local zone which is the same physical server as Media_1
New Physical server has ( Media_2) on a Global Zone
This all works fine until you shut down the Netbackup daemons on the Media_1 server ,
Part of the ( netbackup ) shutdown script will run a ps -ea and grep for nbemm and shutdown the master servers nbemm.,
The reason is the script does not defined if the process_id is running on the local or global zone,.
In the above example the netbackup ( ps -ea | grep nbemm ) finds only process_id of nbemm and kills it
This proccess_id is actually in the local zone so it kills the masters nbemm.
1) Do we support this example. We do state we Symantec Supports a master server is a local zone., How about a master and media server on a physical server using the global and local zones.
2) IUf this is support is there a way to change the ( netbackup ) start/stop switch so the ps -eaZ command will be used to select the correct zone when killing process ids .
