Configuring standalone AMS on a virtual appliance without any NetBackup configuration
In this configuration, you create a VM and set up AMS on it without having to set up the VM as a master or a media server. The advantages of this configuration are: the ability to set up a VM quickly and a low storage requirement because the VM is thinly provisioned.
Review the following considerations before you perform this configuration:
A 50-GB storage capacity is available for the AMS repository.
The NetBackup master server or NetBackup media server options are not available.
If you configure this virtual appliance as a master or a media server after you set it up as an AMS, the AMS configuration is erased. You can configure a fresh AMS after the appliance is configured as a master server or a media server. All the appliances that were previously registered with the AMS must be re-registered on this freshly configured AMS.
Tasks to create a standalone AMS
Deploy the OVA, which has its default resource requirements.
The storage is thin-provisioned.
Set up the network and the host name.
Configure AMS from the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu by using the commands sequence: Appliance > Management Server.
Set up users for signing in to AMS.
