About the DR_PKG_MARKER_FILE environment variable
In case, external CA was configured on the master server before the disaster and the DR installation is not successful, you can use this utility to reconfigure the external CA configuration settings. This hook enables DR installation to wait after recovering the DR package and before the services are restarted. This provides a window to correct or reconfigure the external CA configuration settings as required.
For more information on external CA-signed certificates, refer to the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide.
To let the NetBackup Installer hold the installation process until you have made the required changes to the external CA configuration settings, you should set an environment variable called DR_PKG_MARKER_FILE with a touch file. After this environment variable is set, you can start the DR installation. The DR installation waits towards the end of the installation, before starting the NetBackup services as long it finds the touch file present on the filesystem. You can change the external CA configuration settings during this time. Once done, you must delete the touch file that contains the DR_PKG_MARKER_FILE environment variable to let the Installer resume the installation process.
This marker file should be used only in case of DR installation failures.
