Copilot configuration overview

The following is a high level overview of what is needed to configure Copilot from start to finish. The configuration covered in this guide uses two NetBackup Appliances. Your configuration may vary if using a different number of appliances in your configuration.

If you intend to preserve data during the reconfiguration process, you must use the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu. Reconfiguration using the NetBackup Appliance Web Console is not supported.

This issue occurs only when you reconfigure from the NetBackup Appliance Web Console.
