VMware ESXi backup with RHEL VM using NBU 7.x
Following were the infra details:-
1. VMware ESXi 5.0(2 no.)
2. VCenter 5.5.
3. VMotion is enabled.
4. four no. of VM for SAP and database is DB2 which is running on RHEL6.5 (details are - SAP ERP ECC6 EhP 7 and DB2 10.1)
5. one VM for Zimbra.
I am considering for NBU.
a. Will NBU work in this VMware infra. I mean to say will NBU can able to take backup of the RHEL VM.
b. Is GRT can be possible of the RHEL VM.
c. IF GRT is not possible..will I able to do file/folder restore using the standerd agent after taking a seperatate backup of RHEL server.
d. Will NBU works through vCenter as vmotion is enabled.
e. Is RHEL 6.5 is supported as the compatibility docs only says RHEL6 (no update is mentioned).
There is a small statement in the compatibility docs as below.
" NetBackup is supported on all editions (Advanced, Base, DC, etc.) and on all vendor GA updates (n.1, n.2, etc.) or service packs (SP1, SP2, etc.) unless stated otherwise in the tables below."
What does this statement mean?
f. There is DB2 database, is that supported. As we are using NBU 7.6 I guess there should not be any concern.
g. How will I take SAP backup and is that compatibility for the same. ( SAP ERP ECC6 EhP 7 and DB2 10.1)
