Redundant Netbackup System -- Help..
Created: 22 Jan 2013 | Updated: 25 Apr 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.
I have a set of systems that I know support the Netbackup client and I need to set up a geo-redundant backup system to collect the backups.
What I am hoping is someone can tell me if the following will work:
I have a couple of HP RX2800s (HPUX) each with 8x600GB disks that I want to set up in an geographically separate Active/Standby(DR)configuration.
From what I have read so far, I guess they would act both as Master/Media/Storage Servers. The standby would need to Replicate the backups from the Active Server so that it would be ready to take over if the Active one failed.
Reading the various High Availability docs it seems that replication can be achieved with AIR and I see references to OpenStorage
or Media Server Deduplication Pool. Are these extra to the standard Netbackup installation/compatible with HPUX? - I really have no clue here...
As you can probably tell I am a new to the whole Backup area let alone Symantec Netbackup so any assistance would be gratefully received.
