NetBackup 7.6Beta is currently being tested by a wealth number of customers. So far the feedback has been very positive especially with regards to one of its new features: NetBackup Accelerator for VMware.

NetBackup Accelerator reduces the backup time for VMware backups. NetBackup uses VMware Changed Block Tracking (CBT) to identify changes made within a virtual machine. Only the changed data blocks are sent to the NetBackup media server, to significantly reduce the I/O and backup time. The media server combines the new data with previous backup data and produces a traditional full NetBackup image that includes the complete virtual machine files

Accelerator has the following benefits:

  • Performs full backups faster than traditional backup.
  • Creates a compact backup stream that uses less network bandwidth between the backup host and the server.
  • Accelerator sends only changed data blocks for the backup. NetBackup then creates a full...

When selecting a backup solution for an enterprise environment performance and scalability are between the most important requirements.
 
I'd like to recall the two Kyle Blog entries about NetBackup scalability and why the NetBackup three-tiered approach is the winning one.
 
A backup software with its configuration catalog distributed on different hosts may have scalability issues due to the problem of keeping all this pieces of information up-to-date.
 
The other things to consider are:

Don’t customers hate being misled?

I know I do.  Sometimes it can be innocent…you know, like maybe the sales person wasn’t as knowledgeable as he/she could’ve been.  Or perhaps they were new.  In any case, it behooves the customer to do some homework to make sure that they are not being misled, innocently or otherwise.

 

Your homework is done.

I came across a situation recently where a customer said that a vendor told them their solution could do global deduplication the same as Symantec, but cheaper.  My first thought was wow that’s a big deal.  As you may know, Symantec deduplication capabilities built into NetBackup and Backup Exec offer customers the flexibility of leveraging dedupe at the client, server, or target, and can efficiently dedupe across workloads like physical and...

When I began learning AIX, I relied heavily on the AIX system administration tool called SMIT (GUI) or SMITTY (menu based). One of the great things about SMIT is when you "point and clicked" to create a user account, configure NFS, etc., SMIT displays the actual Unix commands being executed on the bottom of the SMIT window. This is how I learned the basics of the Unix command line. Over time I was able to do all of my administration from the command line interface (CLI) and not have to rely on SMIT. Understanding what commands were actually being run opened the door for me to write scripts that automated routine tasks, tweaked system performance, etc. etc.

Fortunately, there is a similar feature in NetBackup 7.x.

In order to see the command line operations being run by the Java Admin GUI, perform the following actions:

1. On the system where you are running the Java Admin GUI (likely the master server) go to the java directory.
# cd /usr/...

to automatically allow overwritting Backup Exec tapes - which are protected by default - when using Netbackup 7.5 configure the media server like this:

Go to "Host properties" -> "Media Servers" and right click on the appropriate media server and choose "Properties".

Click on "Media" which can be found on the side pane. Activate the checkbox "BE-MTF1" and click on "Ok".

Backup Exec tapes will now be automatically overwritten and used liked new tapes.

Hello Guys,

This post guides us through How to create a VMware Application Protection policy to back up the SharePoint Application in a Virtual Machine.

On the NetBackup Master Server

NetBackup Management > Right Click on Policies > Select New. Provide a name to the policy.

This would open up an “Add New Policy Window” dialog.

Choose Policy Type as VMware.

Select a Storage unit

NOTE – Enable Granular Recovery is disabled, as this type of policy is by default granular.

Add a new schedule as per your requirement.

IMPORTANT- Clients Tab

For VMware application aware backups, the name of the client cannot be entered manually or chosen from list of clients. It must be chosen using a VMware Intelligent Policy (VIP) query.
