Editing the MSDP pd.conf file
If you change the
pd.conf file on a host, it changes the settings for that host only. If you want the same settings for all of the hosts that deduplicate data, you must change the
pd.conf file on all of the hosts.
Veritas recommends that you make a backup copy of the file before you edit it.
To edit the pd.conf file
- Use a text editor to open the pd.conf file.
The pd.conf file resides in the following directories:
- To activate a setting, remove the pound character (#) in column 1 from each line that you want to edit.
- To change a setting, specify a new value.
The spaces to the left and right of the equal sign (=) in the file are significant. Ensure that the space characters appear in the file after you edit the file.
- Save and close the file.
- Restart the NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service (nbrmms) on the host.
