CloudCatalyst requirements and limitations
The CloudCatalyst storage server is a dedicated media server for MSDP deduplicated cloud storage. The media server must be either a NetBackup appliance or a Linux media server, as described in Table: The types of media servers that can be used as CloudCatalyst storage servers.
Table: The types of media servers that can be used as CloudCatalyst storage servers
Veritas NetBackup CloudCatalyst Appliance
NetBackup media server
Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 7.3 or later
NetBackup 8.1 or later
The CloudCatalyst storage server can work with a proxy server when the NTLM authentication method is used. The proxy server must follow certain requirements to function inside of the NetBackup system. The following items are required only when the NTLM authentication method is used. When the BASIC authentication method or NONE is selected, there is no such requirement.
Requirements for a proxy server:
The proxy server must support both NTLMv1 and NTLMv2.
CloudCatalyst is dependent on Classic Cloud Connector to get the list of buckets.
The Classic Cloud Connector only supports NTLMv1, and not NTLMv2.
CloudCatalyst only supports NTLMv2.
A CloudCatalyst storage server is supported for Auto Image Replication (A.I.R.) and Target A.I.R. as the source and the target from NetBackup 8.1.2 Draft or later.
See the NetBackup compatibility lists for updated information on supported cloud vendors and feature support:
The following are current exclusions or limitations:
Support limitations as listed in the NetBackup Cloud Administrator's Guide:
A single media server cannot be both an MSDP storage server and a CloudCatalyst storage server.
NetBackup Client Direct deduplication is supported in a CloudCatalyst duplication to cloud scenario. However, Client Direct deduplication is not supported in a scenario where the backup is uploaded directly to the cloud and no duplication is configured.
Direct backup to CloudCatalyst using the accelerator option is not supported when Amazon S3 Glacier or Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive storage classes are used. Backup to an MSDP with accelerator and then optimized duplication to CloudCatalyst is supported.
