tpconfig - can I run it from anywhere?
I'm registering a server with DDBoost installed with two Data Domain bixes by running the following commands:
nbdevconfig -creatests -stype DataDomain -storage_server ddbox1.ourcorp.net -media_server server1.ourcorp.net
nbdevconfig -creatests -stype DataDomain -storage_server ddbox2.ourcorp.net -media_server server1.ourcorp.net
tpconfig -add -storage_server ddbox1.ourcorp.net -stype DataDomain -sts_user_id ostid -password [password]
tpconfig -add -storage_server ddbox2.ourcorp.net -stype DataDomain -sts_user_id ostid -password [password]
This works fine for us. But I'm wondering, do I have to run these commands on the server in question, or can they be run on any Netbackup media server or the Master server? Some of our servers are Unix/Linux and I don't have access to them so have to ask a guy who does to run them. But what elements of the environment are these commands actually talking to - the local media server or the master server or what?
