Whitelisting a NetBackup client on NetBackup master server

To use the NetBackup client as a backup host, you must whitelist it. Perform the Whitelisting procedure on the NetBackup master server .

Whitelisting is a security practice used for restricting systems from running software or applications unless these have been approved for safe execution.

Note:

Whitelisting is not required for media servers that will be used as backup hosts.

To Whitelist a NetBackup client on NetBackup master server

  • Run the following command on the NetBackup master server:
    • For UNIX

      bpsetconfig -h masterserver

      bpsetconfig> APP_PROXY_SERVER = clientname.domain.org

      bpsetconfig>

      UNIX systems: <ctl-D>

    • For Windows

      bpsetconfig -h masterserver

      bpsetconfig> APP_PROXY_SERVER = clientname1.domain.org

      bpsetconfig> APP_PROXY_SERVER = clientname2.domain.org

      bpsetconfig>

      Windows systems: <ctl-Z>

This command sets the APP_PROXY_SERVER = clientname entry in the backup configuration (bp.conf) file.

For more information about the APP_PROXY_SERVER = clientname, refer to the Configuration options for NetBackup clients section in NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I
