About the Security Management utilities
Use Security Events to view the login details about the current administrator and the user-initiated changes that are made to certificates, tokens, hosts, and security configurations. You can also view details about host connections.
Theutility contains the following tabs:
The Access History tab displays details about the login activities that the current user has performed. The details include successful and unsuccessful login attempts and information about the hosts that the user has tried to access.
See About login activity.
The Audit Events tab displays audit events according to the audit categories that you have selected, such as Certificate, Host, Security Configuration and so on.
Use the Host Management node to carry out NetBackup host operations, such as adding or approving host ID to host name mappings, resetting host, or adding comments for a host.
See Hosts tab.
The Host Management node contains the following tabs:
Thetab displays host information such as, host IDs and host ID to host name mappings.
Thetab displays host ID to host name mappings that need approval.
Use the Certificate Management node to carry out operations specific to certificates such as viewing, revoking, or reissuing.
Use the Global Security Settings node to configure security settings like enable insecure communication, disaster recovery package passphrase, certificate deployment level and so on.
The Global Security Settings node contains the following tabs:
Thetab provides NetBackup security settings that you can configure.
Thetab lets you configure the disaster recovery package passphrase that you need to get the master server host identity back after a disaster.
