Installation prerequisites for NetBackup on HP Service Guard cluster
Verify Service Guard and the current NetBackup Enterprise Server support your hardware. For a list of supported storage devices, visit the following Web site. Also consult the Service Guard documentation.
Verify that the supported version of Service Guard is correctly installed and configured.
Verify that you have an IP address and host name (virtual name) to be assigned exclusively to the NetBackup resource. With this release IPv6 is supported with NetBackup.
The shared disk must be configured and accessible to all cluster nodes where you want to install NetBackup. See the Service Guard and the appropriate Volume Manager (Veritas or HP) documentation for more information on how to create and configure a shared disk. Make sure that the shared disk has enough space for the NetBackup database files and directories. Make sure that the disk is not mounted on any system and that all volume groups are offline and volumes are stopped before installing NetBackup.
You can have the database spread across multiple shared disks for performance reasons. This configuration can be performed after the initial cluster configuration.
Physically connect the robotic devices and tape devices to each node where you want to install NetBackup. Connect devices by SCSI or Fibre Channel. Use OS commands to verify that all the devices are connected properly. Refer to the NetBackup Device Configuration Guide.
Make sure that each node in the cluster, where you want to install NetBackup, is SSH equivalent. As the root user you need to be able to perform a remote logon to each node in the cluster without entering a password. This configuration is only necessary for installation, upgrades, and configuration of the NetBackup server and NetBackup options.
Verify that you have the current NetBackup Enterprise Server version installation program and a valid license key.
