The following prerequisites apply to NetBackup for AHV.
For the required NetBackup licenses, see the following page:
For information on supported versions and support for Nutanix AHV, see Support for NetBackup in a Virtual Environment list from the NetBackup Master Compatibility List page.
If you want to restore a VM to the Nutanix Acropolis cluster or container that you have deleted, you must first recreate the cluster or container. After this recreation is complete, then start the recovery process. Alternatively, you can recover a VM to a different cluster or container.
If you want to restore a VM to another Nutanix AHV cluster, ensure that the AHV cluster has the same configuration as the original AHV cluster.
Verify that the following requirements are met for the NetBackup server:
The NetBackup server software is installed and operational on the NetBackup server.
Ensure that you configure any backup media that the storage unit uses.
The required number of media volumes depend on the following:
The devices that are used and storage capacity of the media
The sizes of the virtual machines that you want to back up
The amount of data that you want to archive
The size of your backups
The length of retention of the backup images
Verify that the NetBackup client software is installed on the backup host.
