About the NetBackup web user interface
In version 8.1.2, Veritas introduces a new web user interface for use with NetBackup. The new interface is designed to improve the ease of use and functionality. At this time, not all functionality of the NetBackup Administration Console is present in the new interface.
NetBackup uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to encrypt the communication for the new interface. You need a TLS certificate that identifies the NetBackup host to enable TLS on the NetBackup web server. NetBackup uses self-signed certificates for client and host validation. A self-signed certificate is automatically generated during install for enabling TLS communications between the web browser and the NetBackup web server. You can create and implement third-party certificates to use in place of the self-signed certificates to support the NetBackup Web Service. The certificates are used for TLS encryption and authentication. See the NetBackup Web UI Security Administrator's Guide for more information.
After the installation of NetBackup, a root user or an administrator must sign into the NetBackup web UI from a web browser and create RBAC access rules for users. An access rule gives a user permissions and access to the NetBackup environment through the web UI, based on the user's role in your organization. Some users have access to the web UI by default.
See the NetBackup Web UI Security Administrator's Guide for details on authorized users, creating access rules, and signing in and out of the web UI.
