Configuring the NetBackup master server
Use the following procedure to configure the NetBackup master server.
To configure the NetBackup master server
- On the master server, create the NetBackup backup policies. For client name lists, use the NetBackup client names (for example, nbclient01) rather than the dynamic network host names (for example, dynamic01).
- Create the client database on the master server.
The client database consists of directories and files in the following directory:
- Create, update, list, and delete client entries with the bpclient command.
The bpclient command is in the following directory:
See bpclient commands that control client entries.
In the example, enter the following commands to create the 20 clients:
cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd bpclient -add -client nbclient01 -dynamic_address 1 bpclient -add -client nbclient02 -dynamic_address 1 bpclient -add -client nbclient03 -dynamic_address 1 bpclient -add -client nbclient04 -dynamic_address 1 . . . bpclient -add -client nbclient20 -dynamic_address 1
- To see what is currently in the client database, run bpclient as follows:
install_path\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\bpclient -L -All
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpclient -L -All
The output is similar to the following:
Client Name: nbclient01 Current Host: Hostname: *NULL* IP Address: 0.0.0.0 Connect on non-reserved port: no Dynamic Address: yes Client Name: nbclient02 Current Host: Hostname: *NULL* IP Address: 0.0.0.0 Connect on non-reserved port: no Dynamic Address: yes . . . Client Name: nbclient20 Current Host: Hostname: *NULL* IP Address: 0.0.0.0 Connect on non-reserved port: no Dynamic Address: yes
The NetBackup client notifies the NetBackup server of its NetBackup client name and network host name. Then the Current Host, Hostname, and IP address fields display the values for that NetBackup client.
