Installation prerequisites for NetBackup on VCS on UNIX/Linux
The following requirements must be met before you install and configure a NetBackup failover server:
Verify that the supported version of VCS is correctly installed and configured on Solaris or Linux. Follow the steps in the Veritas Cluster Server Installation Guide
Verify that no VCS resource group and resource exist with the same name as the one you intend to use for NetBackup.
Verify that you have an IP address (virtual IP) and a host name (virtual name) to assign to the NetBackup resource in VCS. Use these only for the NetBackup resource.
For VCS-UNIX, IP address of the Nodes and Virtual Name must be of same type (IPv6 or IPv4).
With this release IPv6 is supported with NetBackup.
Node IP type must be same as virtual IP type.
Make sure that each node in the cluster, where you want to install NetBackup, is SSH equivalent. As the root user you must 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 any NetBackup options. After installation and configuration are complete SSH can be disabled.
For a clustered NetBackup master server, if the master server is the robotic control host, 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.
Verify that you have the current NetBackup Enterprise Server version installation program and a valid license key.
