Running the NetBackup Administration Console

If the Administration Console is installed on a Microsoft Windows system, you can run the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface directly from the console. This interface lets you log into a NetBackup Windows or UNIX client to perform user-directed operations on that client. You can also start back-level clients from the NetBackup menu.

To start the Administration Console

  1. Click Start > Programs > Veritas NetBackup > NetBackup Administration Console.

    You can also start back-level Administration Consoles by opening the Back-Level Administration Console folder.

  2. Enter the client name where you want to perform the backup, archive, or restore.

    You must have a valid user account on that client and have access to that client.

  3. Enter your user name and your password.
  4. Click Login.
