SERVER entry in vm.conf in NetBackup versions 8.0 and earlier
This entry is not applicable for NetBackup 8.1 or later versions.
This entry determines the name other NetBackup servers should use when they refer to this server.
SERVER entries in the vm.conf file are used for NetBackup media server security.
SERVER = host_name
SERVER entries work with the AUTHORIZATION_REQUIRED entry to control which hosts can monitor and control devices on this host.
If the AUTHORIZATION_REQUIRED entry exists, the vm.conf file must include a SERVER entry for every media server that controls devices on this host. If the vm.conf file contains any SERVER entries, it also must include a SERVER entry for itself or it cannot manage its own devices.
If no AUTHORIZATION_REQUIRED entry exists and no SERVER entries exist, any NetBackup server can monitor and control devices on this host.
For security, the entries that allow only specific hosts to access the devices must be added remotely.
This entry is read and interpreted on media servers on which the NetBackup vmd service runs.
