CALLHOME_PROXY_SERVER option for NetBackup primary and media servers

This option lets you specify an unauthenticated proxy server that NetBackup uses to relay Usage Insights data to Veritas. With this option there is no way to verify that the value is set correctly. The Usage Insights interface displays a message indicating the number of days since the data was successfully uploaded to Veritas. This option only supports the http protocol.

Use the CALLHOME_PROXY_SERVER option only if you have NetBackup 8.3 to NetBackup 9.0.

If you upgrade to NetBackup 9.1 and later, use the nbcallhomeproxyconfig command and the CALLHOME_PROXY_NAME option or manually configure the proxy using the NetBackup Web UI.
