About disaster recovery settings
For increased security, a disaster recovery package is created during each catalog backup.
See Disaster recovery packages.
During each catalog backup, a disaster recovery package is created and encrypted with the passphrase that you set. You need to provide this encryption passphrase while you install NetBackup on the master server in a disaster recovery mode after a disaster.
The following options are displayed on the Disaster Recovery tab:
Table: Disaster recovery settings
Enter the passphrase to encrypt disaster recovery packages.
Re-enter the passphrase for confirmation.
Ensure that the passphrase contains only the supported characters. If you enter a character that is not supported, you may face problems during disaster recovery package restore. The passphrase may not be validated and you may not be able to restore the disaster recovery package.
Subsequent disaster recovery packages are encrypted with the new passphrase that you set.
If you change the passphrase anytime, it is not changed for the previous disaster recovery packages. Only new disaster recovery packages are associated with the new passphrase.
Passphrase that you provide while you install NetBackup on the master server in a disaster recovery mode after a disaster must correspond to the disaster recovery package from which you want to recover the master server host identity.
