About Veritas Access as a NetBackup client
Veritas Access is integrated with Veritas NetBackup so that a NetBackup administrator can back up your Veritas Access file systems to NetBackup master or media servers and retain the data as per your company policy. Once data is backed up, a storage administrator can delete unwanted data from Veritas Access. The NetBackup master and media servers that run on separate computers from Veritas Access are licensed separately from Veritas Access.
You configure NetBackup domain information using any one of the following interfaces:
Command-line interface (CLI)
The Veritas Access command-line interface has a dedicated Backup> menu. From the Backup> menu, register the NetBackup client with the NetBackup domain. Information is saved in the
Settings > NetBackup Configuration
See the Online Help for how to configure NetBackup using the GUI.
See the Veritas Access RESTful API Guide.
Consolidating storage reduces the administrative overhead of backing up and restoring many separate file systems. Critical file data can be backed up and restored through the NetBackup client on Veritas Access.
If Veritas Access is configured with IPv6 addresses, you have to configure IPv6 support for the NetBackup host as well.
Perform the following steps to configure IPv6 support for the NetBackup host :
Set the IP_ADDRESS_FAMILY option in the
NetBackup bp.conffile for the host to AF_UNSPEC.
# bpsetconfig IP_ADDRESS_FAMILY = AF_UNSPEC
You can view the current setting by executing the bpgetconfig command.
# bpgetconfig IP_ADDRESS_FAMILY = AF_UNSPEC
Restart the services after making this change.
