About NetBackup and CloudPoint integration for snapshot management
Using the NetBackupSnapshot management framework, you can use CloudPoint for taking snapshots of your images. You can protect all the on-premises storage arrays that are supported by CloudPoint.
The following table describes the underlying tasks.
Table: Tasks for snapshot management using Snapshot management framework
Configure the CloudPoint server in NetBackup.
You can configure the CloudPoint server as a snapshot management server. To configure the CloudPoint server in NetBackup you need to add the credentials of the CloudPoint server.
Configure the CloudPoint plug-ins in NetBackup.
The CloudPoint plug-ins for snapshot management that you have installed on the CloudPoint server must be registered and configured in NetBackup with the associated CloudPoint server.
Configure a Standard policy to use VSO snapshot method.
Backup and restore procedures
Consider the following when integrating NetBackup with CloudPoint:
Deletion of CloudPoint host entry and its associated plugins is not supported in NetBackup.
Using CloudPoint, if you delete plugins that are configured in NetBackup, the images of snapshots taken using CloudPoint will be unusable.
Post integration, all the related operations must be performed from NetBackup. Results of operations performed outside NetBackup, wouldn't be visible in NetBackup. CloudPoint has its own RBAC, where NetBackup is one of the users and operations performed only through NetBackup will be visible in NetBackup. For example, even though you can add CloudPoint plug-in from CloudPoint, you must add the plug-in from NetBackup, or the plug-in may not be visible in NetBackup.
HP-UX Native Volume Group Version 2.0 and later is not supported.
Raw device and raw partitions are not supported.
File system verification is not supported. You must skip the verification step and perform a force roll back. In the Restore Marked Files dialog box, select the checkbox.
Live browse is not supported. You will not able to see the contents of the backup selection.
Consider all the CloudPoint limitations. See, Veritas CloudPoint Administartor's Guide.
NetBackup integration is not supported with the CloudPoint freemium version.
It is recommended not to reinstall the CloudPoint server but to upgrade it. However, if you reinstall the CloudPoint server you need to reconfigure the CloudPoint server and the associated CloudPoint plug-ins.
