Reset a host's attributes
In some cases you need to reset a host's attributes to allow successful communication with the host. A reset is most common when a host is downgraded to a 8.0 or earlier version of NetBackup. After the downgrade, the master server cannot communicate with the client because the communication status for the client is still set to the secure mode. A reset updates the communication status to reflect the insecure mode.
When you reset a host's attributes:
NetBackup resets the host ID to host name mapping information, the host's communication status and so on. It does not reset the host ID, host name, or security certificates of the host.
The connection status is set to the insecure state. The next time the master server communicates with the host, the connection status is updated appropriately.
To reset the attributes for a host
- On the left, select Security > Hosts.
- Select the host and click Reset attributes > Reset.
- Choose if you want to communicate insecurely with 8.0 and earlier hosts.
NetBackup can communicate with a 8.0 or earlier host when the Allow communication with NetBackup 8.0 and earlier hosts option is enabled in the Global Security Settings. This option is enabled by default.
If you unintentionally use the bpcd service. Otherwise, the host attributes are automatically updated with the appropriate values after 24 hours.option, you can undo the changes by restarting the
