Authorizing the NetBackup vSphere Client (HTML5) plug-in to restore virtual machines
The NetBackup master server initiates and controls the backup of virtual machines. To use the plug-in to restore virtual machines, you must obtain an authentication token from the NetBackup administrator. You can then authorize the plug-in to restore the virtual machines that were backed up by that master server.
To authorize the plug-in to restore virtual machines
- Ask the NetBackup administrator to provide an authentication token file.
- Copy the authentication token file to the computer or laptop where the vSphere Client is launched.
Make a note of the location.
- In vSphere Client, click Veritas NetBackup.
- Click Register Master Server.
- Click ADD MASTER SERVER.
- Enter the following to specify a NetBackup master server and its authentication token.
NetBackup Master Server
Enter the fully qualified domain name of the master server.
NetBackup does not support adding the server by its IP address.
Port for NetBackup Web Services
If the NetBackup administrator has not changed the port, accept the default (8443). Otherwise, ask the administrator for the correct port number.
Upload Authentication Token
Click Browse to select the authentication token file that the NetBackup administrator provided.
Click to add the server to the list of master servers that the plug-in can communicate with.
- Add other master servers and their authentication tokens as needed.
- To be able to restore to an alternate vCenter server, log on to that vCenter server and register the master server.
- You can also remove a master server from the list of servers, or validate the connection from the plug-in to a master server.
In the Master Server list, select the server to validate or remove.
Validates the connection to the server.
Removes the server from the list. The plug-in is no longer able to monitor or restore the backups that the master server performed.
