What's in this guide

The Veritas NetBackup in Highly Available Environments Administrator's Guide discusses various methods for making NetBackup highly available and provides guidelines for protecting NetBackup against single point of failures.

This guide looks at the components of a data protection system based on NetBackup. It outlines different configurations and solutions for reducing the risk of failure within a particular site and recovering from the loss of the site.

You can use this guide as an aid to create a NetBackup site disaster recovery plan because it discusses catalog recovery and catalog replication process. However, this guide is not intended to provide a definitive disaster recovery plan for all NetBackup environments. Instead, you can use the information to develop site disaster recovery plans specific to your NetBackup environments.

This guide also provides guidelines for installing and upgrading NetBackup master servers. In addition, the guide details operating practices when catalogs are replicated between clustered or non-clustered NetBackup master servers.

The guide does not cover the details of clustering or replication technologies that are used. Please refer to your specific replication technology documentation for details on deploying and operating replication layers. For more information about NetBackup master server clustering, refer NetBackup Clustered Master Server Administrator's Guide.
