UNIX media server verification
Perform the following to verify the UNIX media server:
Verify the media server.
Verify that the server has access to the authorization database.
Understand the unable to load library message.
The following table describes the verification procedures for the UNIX media server.
Table: Verification process for the UNIX media server
Verify the media server
To determine which authentication broker the media server is authenticated against, run bpnbat -whoami with -cf for the media server's credential file. The server credentials are located in the
bpnbat -whoami -cf /usr/openv/var/vxss/credentials/unix_media.company.com Name: unix_media.company.com Domain: NBU_Machines@unix_master.company.com Issued by: /CN=broker/OU=root@unix_master.company.com/ O=vx Expiry Date: Oct 31 14:48:08 2007 GMT Authentication method: Veritas Private Security Operation completed successfully.
If the domain listed is not NBU_Machines@unix_master.company.com, consider running bpnbat -addmachine for the name in question (unix_media). This command is run on the computer with the authentication broker that serves the NBU_Machines domain (unix_master).
Then, on the computer where we want to place the certificate, run (unix_master): bpnbat -loginmachine
Verify that the server has access to the authorization database
To make sure that the media server is able to access the authorization database as it needs, run bpnbaz -ListGroups
bpnbaz -ListGroups -CredFile /usr/openv/var/vxss/credentials/unix_media.company.com NBU_User NBU_Operator NBU_Admin NBU_Security Admin Vault_Operator Operation completed successfully.
If this command fails, run bpnbaz -AllowAuthorization on the master server that is the authorization server (unix_master). Note that you need to run as root or administrator.
Unable to load library message
Verify the media server and that it has access to the proper database. This verification indirectly informs us that the NetBackup Authentication and Authorization client libraries for both authentication and authorization are properly installed. If either of these procedures fail with the message "unable to load libraries," check to make certain the Authentication and Authorization client libraries are installed.
You may also verify that the authentication domains are correct. Do this verification viewing the access control host properties for this media server, or by cat(1)ing the bp.conf file.
