Installing a failover NetBackup server on VCS on UNIX/Linux
This topic describes how to install and configure a new NetBackup Enterprise Server as a failover application on a VCS on UNIX or Linux. To upgrade NetBackup, you must follow a different procedure.
The following procedure describes how to install and configure a NetBackup failover server in a VCS cluster.
NetBackup automatically detects supported clustering technology and prompts questions based on it. If you are not prompted for these questions on a clustered setup, please exit from the script and verify that cluster is configured correctly.
To install a NetBackup failover server
- Fill out the checklist for all configurations and the checklist for your specific environment.
- Make sure that the shared disk is not mounted on any node in the cluster.
If applicable, unmount the NetBackup shared mount point. Stop the volume the mount point is on and deport the disk group for that volume on all nodes of the cluster.
- Follow the instructions for how to install NetBackup in the NetBackup Installation Guide.
Be sure that you:
Install NetBackup on each node to which it can failover.
Use the virtual name for the NetBackup server name.
When you are prompted, you must provide the same virtual cluster name that you provided during the installation. This name must be in the same format (FQDN/short) on all the nodes.
- When NetBackup is installed on the clustered setup a confirmation prompt is displayed.
When you install NetBackup on the first node, you are prompted to confirm creation of a NetBackup cluster. Type Yes to set up NetBackup in HA mode.
When you install NetBackup on the subsequent nodes, information about already created NetBackup cluster group is displayed. You are prompted to join the group.
- When you are prompted for cluster-specific configuration details, refer to the checklist and provide details accordingly.
- Allow NetBackup to be installed in a cluster. When a NetBackup failover server is installed:
On the first node, a single node cluster resource group for NetBackup is created and brought online.
On the other nodes, the installed node is added to the cluster resource group.
- Post installation, get security certificates on all the nodes within the cluster.
For more information on getting a certificate in a clustered NetBackup setup, see the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide.
- Install any NetBackup options.
- Continue with configuration of NetBackup.
