NetBackup for NDMP installation prerequisites
NetBackup for NDMP functionality installs when the NetBackup server software is installed. No separate installation procedure is required. However, you must enter a valid license to use NetBackup for NDMP.
If your NetBackup for NDMP server is not your master server, install your NDMP license on the master server.
In a clustered environment, perform the steps to add the license on each node in the cluster. First, freeze the active node so that migrations do not occur during installation. Unfreeze the active node after the installation completes. For information about freezing or unfreezing a service group, see the clustering section in the NetBackup High Availability Administrator's Guide for the cluster software you are running.
For more information about administering licenses, see the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I.
NetBackup for NDMP cannot be uninstalled separately from the full NetBackup product.
If you uninstall the full NetBackup product, make sure that no NetBackup for NDMP backups are active or running for the client. On the master server, check the Activity Monitor in the NetBackup Administration Console. If the for the backups indicates Done, you can then perform the uninstall procedure that is described in the NetBackup Installation Guide.
