On NetBackup primary servers.

How to use

The nbcallhomeproxyconfig command lets you add, edit, and delete proxy configurations

The command also allows you to verify the proxy configuration.

Note:

You can only do proxy verification from the command line.

All configurations require a unique credential name. This name is assigned to the CALLHOME_PROXY_NAME key in the NetBackup configuration.

CALLHOME_PROXY_NAME is set automatically if you use the nbcallhomeproxyconfig command to manage proxy configuration.

More information about the nbcallhomeproxyconfig is available in the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.

Web UI configuration

You can use the NetBackup Web UI to manually add, edit and delete authenticated and unauthenticated proxy servers from Credential management tab.

You must set CALLHOME_PROXY_NAME = [CMS credential name] manually using the bpsetconfig command.

More information about the configuration from the Web UI is available in the NetBackup Web UI Administrator's Guide
