Two Media Servers - One Tape Library
Created: 12 Oct 2012 • Updated: 05 Jan 2013 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.
Server1: Master Server and Media Server
Server2: Media Server and Client
Server1 and Server2 both have fiber connectivity to Tape Library.
Both servers have RHEL 6.2 and NetBackup Enterprise 7.1.
I am not able to set up the Master Server to communicate with the clients with FT. This is because the closest driver in /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/driver is ql2300_stub.ko.2.6.18-194.el5 which will not work with my QLE2560 card and 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 kernel.
What I want to set up:
Server2 to use it's own Media Server's path to the Tape library when doing backups from it's own client.
All other clients to use Server1's Media Server path to that same Tape libary.
This way I can utilize the speed of the HBA I have set up on Server2 without the requirement the FT on the Master Server.
Would this type of setup be possible?
Right now I have both Media Servers seeing the Robot, but it is only enabled on Server1, cant enable it for the other Media Server.
