The NetBackup 5240 Appliance add-in cards are available in multiple configurations. Several configurations include at least one Fibre Channel host bus adapter card for VMware, optimized deduplication over Fibre Channel, or tape library connectivity.

In some configurations the Fibre Channel host bus adapter cards are installed into some of the PCIe slots. If the cards are installed in slots 5 and 6, the configuration supports Fibre Transport Media Server (FTMS) mode. Port 1 of each card is configured by default as Target, while port 2 is configured by default as Initiator. If you want, you can configure port 2 on both cards as Target, and you can configure port 1 on both cards as Initiator.

Note:

Only configurations D and E support FTMS.

See NetBackup 5240 Appliance I/O configuration options.

Note:

You cannot bond copper 1 Gb/10 Gb Ethernet ports that are installed in the appliance chassis with PCIe-based 10 Gb Ethernet Fibre Channel ports.

NetBackup 5240 Appliances may include grounding studs in case your lab environment has such a requirement. The studs are located on the rear panel of the appliance. You can use standard grounding practices to connect grounding wires to the studs.

The serial number is located on a vertical bar on the rear panel of the appliance.

The ports on the rear panel are color-coded for easy identification.
