Adding a backup host to the NetBackup master server
The backup host or appliance acts as a channel to establish an indirect communication between the NetBackup master server and the RHV manager. The backup host is a NetBackup client that performs backups or restores on behalf of the virtual machines.
A NetBackup master and media server can also be configured as the backup host. However, you do not need to add the master or media server acting as a backup host to thelist.
The secure communication happens by APIs and uses SSL.
SSL requires that all backup hosts have ECA certificates.
Communication between RHV and backup host requires an open port.
The following operating systems are supported for your backup host:
Red Hat Linux
When the backup host is not a NetBackup media server or an appliance, you need to add the backup host to the NetBackuplist.
To add a backup host to NetBackup master access list
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the left pane, click the Host Properties node.
- In the Host Properties dialog box, select Master Servers and right-click to view Properties, and then select RHV Access Hosts.
- To add the backup host to NetBackup master access list, click Add. In the New Server dialog box, enter the name of the backup host and click Add.
