Restore from Unix Master Server to Windows Master Server

Created: 25 Juin 2012 | 4 comments


We are also moving out a small setup of Solaris Master Server with 50 windows clients to Windows 2008 Server.

But here we are doing a Fresh setup on Windows Server and not migrating the Catalog from Unix Server.

During restore the Old archived backups from Solaris Master Server, we will do the Import Phase I and Phase II during the restore.

I am new on Windows Server setup. Please guide me, related to backup / restore / system performance / trouble shooting etc.

With Regards.

Here you are, everything you need to know about NetBackup 6/7.x

I know that you are no stranger to NBU on Unix - it's the Windows part that is new...

Day-to-day management on Windows is exactly the same as on Unix. Even NBU commands are the same.

Good performance considerations article can be found here:

One 'irritating' 'feature' of W2008 is that almost everything needs to be done with right-click, Run As Administrator. This includes installation of NBU, opening the GUI. opening cmd, etc.. etc...
I have had the experience where all configuration worked fine, but when I tried to run a 'simple' report, I received 'no entity found' error.

If you can, ask that UAC (User Access Control) gets disabled before you start...

follow below steps about your activity ....

*****Make sure new master server is communicating with all existing NBU clients.

1. Install fresh NBU master server with recent release & patch level

2. Create all NBU policies as it was in old master server

2. Configure robot & drives with Master / Media server

3. import all existing media in New master server

In addition to Marianne's suggestion, there is this performance tuning technote for NB7.x on Windows 2008 R2:

Few more points would be:

- Try not to setup MSDP on the master server, if you need MSDP use a separate media server for that.

- It's generally common to have Anti-virus software on Windows box, but sometimes it may affect Netbackup operation you may want to exclude the application from virus scan:

- Always use "Run as administrator" as Marianne emphasizes. :P
