Configuring a target for MSDP replication to a remote domain
Configuring the target storage server is only one step in the process of configuring MSDP replication.
About clustered master servers: If you add a trusted master server for replication operations, you must enable inter-node authentication on all of the nodes in the cluster. Enable the authentication before you begin the following procedure. This requirement applies regardless of whether the clustered mastered server is the source of the replication operation or the target.
Choose the target storage server or servers carefully. A target storage server must not also be a storage server for the source domain. Also, a disk volume must not be shared among multiple NetBackup domains.
To configure a Media Server Deduplication Pool as a replication target
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand Media and Device Management > Credentials > Storage Server.
- Select the MSDP storage server.
- On the Edit menu, select Change.
- In the Change Storage Server dialog box, select the Replication tab.
The following is an example of the Change Storage Server dialog box Replication tab:
- On the Replication tab, click Add. The Add a Replication Target Across a Different NetBackup Domain dialog box appears.
The following is an example of the dialog box.
- In the Add a Replication Target Across a Different NetBackup Domain dialog box, complete one or more of the following procedures depending on your requirements:
Add a trusted master server
Add a trusted master server if you want to replicate backup images to a subset of available targets.
To add a trusted master server
In the Target master server drop-down list, select Add a new trusted master server.
Complete the fields in the Add a New Trusted Master Server dialog box. Click OK after you complete the fields.
Repeat the first two steps until you have finished adding trusted master servers.
To add a replication target, continue with the next procedure.
Select a trusted master server and replication target
Select a trusted master server if you want to replicate backup images to a subset of available targets.
To select a trusted master server and replication target
In the Target master server drop-down list, select the master server of the domain to which you want to replicate data.
All trusted master servers are in the drop-down list.
In the Target storage server type drop-down list, select the type of target storage server.
All available target types are in the drop-down list.
In the Target storage server name drop-down list, select the storage server that hosts the target deduplication pool. All available storage servers in the target domain are in the drop-down list.
After you select the target storage server, NetBackup populates the User name field with the User name of the NetBackup Deduplication Engine of the target host.
Enter the Password for the deduplication service on the target storage server.
Enter a replication target
Enter a replication target, except the Cloud Catalyst storage server, if you did not configure trusted master servers.
To enter a replication target
In the Target storage server name field, enter the name of the target storage server.
Enter the User name and Password for the NetBackup Deduplication Engine on the target storage server.
- After all replication targets are added, click OK.
- For the deduplication pools in each domain, open the Change Disk Pool dialog box and click Refresh.
Configuring a replication target configures the replication properties of the disk volumes in both domains. However, you must refresh the deduplication pools so thatNetBackup reads the new volume properties.
