Mounting an NFS share on a NetBackup master server instance
You can configure the NetBackup catalog backup policy to send disaster recovery files to a Network File System (NFS) share. Use the following procedure to mount an NFS share on a master server application instance for disaster recovery.
To mount the NFS share and configure the catalog backup policy:
- On the NFS server, navigate to
/etc/exportsand add the following directive:
<NFS directory> <master IP address>(rw,noroot_squash)
Where <NFS directory> is the directory for the NFS share, and <master IP address> is the IP address of the master server instance.
- Run the following command to change the permission of the NFS directory to 775:
# *chmod 775 <NFS directory>
# *chmod 775 /nfsdir
- Restart the NFS service.
- Log in to the master server instance as the appadmin user and run the following commands:
$ sudo bash
bash-4.2# cat > /mnt/nbdata/vxos/etc/fstab
<NFS IP address>:<NFS directory> /mnt/nbcatdr nfs v<NFS version>,rw,x-mount.mkdir
Where <NFS IP address> is the IP address of the NFS server, <NFS directory> is the directory for the NFS share, and <NFS version> is either 3 or 4.
22.214.171.124:/nfsdir /mnt/nbcatdr nfs v3,rw,x-mount.mkdir
- From the NetBackup Administration Console, use the Backup Policy Configuration Wizard to configure a backup policy with the type NBU-Catalog. Specify the following information for the catalog disaster recovery file:
Password: Your appadmin user password
