Adding the Nutanix Acropolis Cluster credentials for NetBackup
You must add the credentials for accessing the Acropolis cluster to the NetBackup master server. There are two options to accomplish this.
The backup host needs to access the Acropolis cluster. To access the Acropolis cluster, the backup host needs to obtain the cluster credentials. Therefore, the backup host communicates with the NetBackup master server to obtain these credentials.
To add credentials for the Acropolis cluster using the NetBackup Administration Console
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the left pane, click the Media and Device Management node.
- Click the Credentials node to see the Virtual Machine Server option.
- Right-click Virtual Machine Server and select New Virtual Machine Server....
- In the New Virtual Machine Server dialog box, enter a name for the server. Click OK.
- In the Credentials pane of the New Virtual Machine Server - <server_name> dialog box, do the following:
From the Virtual Machine Server Type drop-down list, select Nutanix Acropolis Cluster.
In the User name field, enter the user name to access the Nutanix Acropolis Cluster.
In the Password field, enter the password to access the Nutanix Acropolis Cluster.
If you provide an invalid or incorrect credential, you may see the following status code in the Activity Monitor:
Status code: 6629: Unable to complete the operation. Failed to authorize the user or the server.
The Validate using backup host and the Connect using Port number options are unavailable for the Nutanix Acropolis Cluster.
The default port number for a Nutanix Acropolis Cluster is 9440. However, the provision to change this port number is available only through the command line interface using the tpconfig command.
See To add credentials for the Acropolis cluster using the NetBackup Command Line Interface for information about using the tpconfig for Nutanix Acropolis cluster.
- To save your changes, click OK.
You may also add credentials for the Acropolis cluster using the command line interface.
To add credentials for the Acropolis cluster using the NetBackup Command Line Interface

- From the command line, run:
tpconfig -add | -update -virtual_machine virtual_machine_name -vm_user_id user_id -vm_type virtual_machine_type -requiredport IP_port_number [-password password [-key encryption_key]]
For example: /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpconfig -add -virtual_machine my.virualmachine.com -vm_user_id admin -vm_type 9 -password abc@123
