Preparing the OpenStack

Perform the following tasks to prepare OpenStack for NetBackup:

  • Update firewall settings so that the backup hosts can communicate with the OpenStack endpoints-Nova, Keystone, Glance, Cinder, Neutron.

  • Ensure that backup hosts can communicate with the NetBackup Master Server.

  • The backup host must be deployed in the compute node. See Managing backup hosts.

  • Add the entries of the controller node and the compute node to the /etc/hosts file on the associated backup hosts. You must add the hostname in FQDN format.


    Add the appropriate DNS entries in the /etc/resolve.conf file.

  • Use consistent conventions for hostnames of backup hosts, media servers, and master server. For example, if you are using the hostname as (FQDN format) use the same everywhere.

  • Display name and hostname of the backup hosts should be the same.
