Changing the NetBackup Legacy Network Service logon (vnetd.exe) to the domain user account
You can configure a NetBackup Hyper-V Intelligent Policy to search for VMs in all the nodes of a Hyper-V failover cluster.
Important! To allow the policy to discover all cluster nodes, you must set the NetBackup Legacy Network Service (vnetd.exe) logon to the domain user account. The logon must not be left at its default (the local system account). If the logon is not changed, the policy does not search the VMs on other nodes of the cluster.
Because VMs can automatically migrate from one cluster node to another, it is important to allow the policy to search the entire cluster. The node where the VM currently resides may have changed since the VM was last backed up.
To verify the privileges that are needed to discover the failover cluster
- Run the Failover Cluster Manager as the Failover Cluster Manager user.
On the Failover Cluster Manager host, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then right-click Failover Cluster Manager.
Click Run as different user, and provide the user name and password for the Failover Cluster Manager.
To change the NetBackup Legacy Network Service (vnetd.exe) logon to the domain user account
- Make sure that your logon account is in the domain's Administrator group or in the Administrator group on the Hyper-V nodes. This procedure requires Administrator privileges.
- On a Hyper-V server node that you want the policy to search, open Services (run services.msc).
- Double-click the NetBackup Legacy Network Service. This service is vnetd.exe.
- Click the Log On tab, and click This account.
- Enter the user name and password for the domain user account.
For This account, enter the user name in the form domain\username.
- Click OK.
- Restart the NetBackup Legacy Network Service.
- Repeat these steps for each cluster node that you want the policy to search.
