Complete the Hosts tab
The Hosts tab provides a listing of all media servers and client servers that are included in the report. The tab includes master servers if they are either a media server or a client server. Review five areas to complete the review of this tab.
To complete the Hosts tab
- Scan the Connectable column to see if the utility was unable to connect to any hosts for its calculations. Be aware the utility cannot connect to NDMP filers. If there is a large number of non-NDMP filer hosts the utility could not connect to, consider rerunning the utility with the --retry option. Use the following command to retry the connections:
nbdeployutil --retry path_to_the_gathered_data
When the command finishes, use the following command to recreate the report.
nbdeployutil --report all_previously_specified_options all_previously_specified_gather_directories
- Check the Tier column for any hosts that are listed as UNKNOWN. Replace these with the appropriate tier number between one and four. Work with your Veritas Sales Engineer to determine the correct tier information. The Platform and Processors values help determine the host's tier. These columns do not calculate the tier, but by knowing this information you can determine the appropriate value to enter in the Tier column.
- Review the MSEO Key Server column and verify that all the listed information is correct. Yes indicates that the host is an MSEO key server. No indicates that the host is not an MSEO key server. The N/A value indicates that the host is not a media server.
- Check the Enterprise Client column and verify that the information is correct. Yes indicates that the host is an enterprise client and was backed up. No indicates that the host is not an enterprise client. The N/A value indicates that no backups were performed on the host during the report period.
- Review the SAN Media Server column and correct any hosts where the value is UNKNOWN. Confirm that all other values are correct. A value of N/A for a host indicates that the host is either a client server or a master server.
Be aware that the only column which contributes to the final information on the Summary tab is the Tier column. Values of in other columns other than Tier indicate unknown information. All data aside from the Tier column is for informational purposes only
