Communication between NetBackup 8.1 master server and OpsCenter 8.1 server

Ensure that the following options are configured before you collect data from a NetBackup 8.1 master server using OpsCenter 8.1 server:

  • The OpsCenter server name must be added against the OPS_CENTER_SERVER_NAME configuration option in the NetBackup configuration file (bp.conf on UNIX or registry key for Windows).

  • Insecure communication is enabled in NetBackup. Check one of the following:

    • In the NetBackup Administration Console on the master server host, the Security Management > Global Security > Hosts > Enable insecure communication with NetBackup 8.0 and earlier hosts option is selected.

    • On the master server host, nbseccmd -setsecurityconfig -insecurecommunication command-line option is set to 'on'.
