Node level configuration
The Database Instance installation creates a directory /usr/sap/<SID> containing links to the installation directory.
So the path /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbbackint is the same on each HANA installation, independent of the hardware vendor.
Manually create a node_names.txt file under /usr/openv/netbackup/ext/db_ext/sap.
This file should contain all probable client names (appliance node), one name per line.
The SAP HANA admin should update this file whenever a new node is added or removed from the appliance.
Using the root user, give +r permissions to the newly created file node_names.txt on every client (appliance node).
Create a link from SAP HANA's hdbbackint to hdbbackint_script script instead of NetBackup's
ln -s /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/hdbbackint_script /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdb/opt/hdbbackint
If the opt directory is not present, at /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/hdblocation, you must create it and then create a hdbbackint link as mentioned above.
The HANA DB Master node triggers the backups on all the nodes.
