Performing local, remote, or clustered server installation on Windows systems

Use the following procedure to perform a local, a remote, or a clustered install of NetBackup on a Windows computer.

To install NetBackup 9.0 server software on a local, remote, or clustered Windows server

  1. Log on to the system. Be sure to log on with administrator privileges.
    • For local installations, log on to the system where you want to install NetBackup.

    • For remote installations, log on to a system with network access to all of the hosts where you want to install NetBackup.

    • For cluster installations, log on to the active node (the node with the shared disk).

  2. Navigate to the directory where the images reside and run Browser.exe to start the NetBackup Installation Wizard .
  3. On the initial browser screen (Home), click Installation.
  4. On the Installation screen, click NetBackup Server Software Installation.
  5. On the Welcome screen, review the content and click Next.
  6. (Conditional) If you previously installed NetBackup 9.0 on this host, you see the Program Maintenance dialog.
    • Select Modify to change installation settings for the local host, or to use the local host as a platform to perform push installation to remote hosts.

    • Select Repair to restore NetBackup 9.0 to its original state on the local host.

    • Select Remove to remove NetBackup 9.0 from the local host.

  7. On the License Agreement screen, do the following and click Next:

    I agree to and accept the terms of the license agreement.

    You must select this item to install the software.

  8. On the Veritas NetBackup Installation Type screen, provide the following information:

    Where to install

    • For a local installation, select Install to this computer only.

    • For a remote installation, select Install to multiple computers on your network.

    • For a cluster installation, select Install a clustered Master Server.

      This option is available only if the installation process determines that your system is configured for a Windows Server Failover Cluster (WSFC) or VCS clustered environment.

    Typical

    Select this option to install NetBackup with the default settings.

    Note:

    The Typical installation does not install the Java GUI or the JRE on Windows media servers. You must select Custom if you want the Java GUI and the JRE installed on Windows media servers.

    Custom

    Select this option to install NetBackup with the settings that you want.

    Click Next.

  9. On the NetBackup License Key and Server Type screen, provide the following information:

    License Key

    Enter the product license that you received with your product.

    The license that you provide determines which components you can select. For example, you can click the icon next to NetBackup Master Server only if you enter a master server license.

    For remote and cluster installations:

    Note:

    The license that you enter here gets pushed to the other nodes. Your license may enable add-on products. If you push NetBackup to nodes that have an add-on product already installed, your license works for the add-on product(s).

    During this installation process, the following occurs to verify that you have proper credentials to perform remote installations:

    • When you select a clustered system for installation, NetBackup determines if you have proper administrator credentials on all nodes in the cluster. If you do not have the proper credentials, the system is not added to the list.

    • If you have the proper credentials, NetBackup performs a second check to determine if a license is needed. If a license is needed and one was not entered, the system cannot be added to the list. You must enter a valid license to install on that node. If you enter an invalid license, this screen remains visible until a valid license is entered.

    NetBackup Master Server

    Click this icon to install master server software.

    NetBackup Media Server

    For local or remote installations, click this icon to install media server software.

    Disaster Recovery Master Server

    Select this option to perform a disaster recovery of your master server. The disaster recovery process requires additional steps and information that is not covered in this manual. More information is available.

    NetBackup Troubleshooting Guide

  10. On the Customer Registration Key screen, enter the location of the Customer Registration Key. You download this file from the Veritas Usage Insights site and place the file on the appropriate master server. More information about Veritas Usage Insights is available.

    See About Veritas Usage Insights.

    During install and upgrade to NetBackup 8.1.2, please allow the installer to copy the veritas_customer_registration_key.json file to its final destination. NetBackup can set the file permission and ownership correctly through this process. If you place the file onto your systems outside of the install or the upgrade process, the process may not work correctly.

  11. On the NetBackup Web Services screen, specify the account type and the account details.

    What types of acccounts should we use?

    Select either Local or Domain (Active Directory).

    Select Local if you want to associate the web server with a user and a group account that exist on the local host.

    Select Domain (Active Directory) if you want to associate the web server with a user and a group account that exist on a trusted Windows domain.

    What are the existing account details

    Specify the information as shown:

    • Domain - If you chose the Domain (Active Directory) account type, specify the name of the domain to which the user and the group accounts belong.

    • Group - Specify the name of the group account to associate with the web server.

    • User - Specify the name of the user account to associate with the web server. For security reasons, do not specify a user account that has administrative privileges on the host.

    • Password - Specify the password of the user account in the User field.

    Note:

    After installation, you cannot change the user account for the NetBackup web server. Do not delete this account, as you cannot reconfigure the account for the web server after installation.

    More information is available.

    See Installation and upgrade requirements for Windows and Windows clusters.

  12. (Conditional) This step applies only to the local installations that are Custom. For Typical installations, skip to the next step.

    This step describes how to select and configure the NetBackup Installation Folder, NetBackup Port Numbers, and the NetBackup Services.

    • NetBackup Installation Folder

      On this screen, you can select where the NetBackup files are installed.

      Destination Folder

      By default, NetBackup files are installed to the following location:

      C:\Program Files\VERITAS

      To change the folder destination where NetBackup is installed:

      • Click Change.

      • Browse to the preferred location and designate a new or an existing folder.

      • Click Next.

      Additional information about installation folder restrictions is available.

      See Restrictions on the NetBackup installation directory.

      Click Next.

    • Java GUI and JRE Options

      The options that are provided are:

      • Include Java GUI and JRE: Install the Java GUI and the JRE to the specified computer.

      • Exclude Java GUI and JRE: Exclude the Java GUI and the JRE from the specified computer.

      • Match Existing Configuration (remote installs only): Preserve the current state of the Java GUI and JRE components. If the Java GUI and JRE are present, they are upgraded. If they are not present, they are not upgraded. If you specify this option on an initial installation, the packages are not installed.

    • NetBackup Port Numbers

      On this screen, you can change port numbers, if it is necessary in your configuration.

      You may need to change a port number if you encounter conflicts when NetBackup and another industry product try to share the same port. Another example is if a port conflict occurs with a firewall, which may cause security issues.

      To change a port number, select the port number that you want to replace and type the new number.

      Click Next.

    • NetBackup Services

      On this screen, provide the following startup account and startup type information for NetBackup services:

      Log On

      Specify either Local System account or This account.

      By default, the Local System account is selected, so that NetBackup uses the built-in system account. When this option is selected, the fields below it are disabled.

      To specify a different account:

      • Select This account.

      • Enter the account information in the following fields:

        Domain

        Username

        Password

      Startup Type

      This option determines whether NetBackup services start automatically if you need to restart the NetBackup host. The default is Automatic.

      To start NetBackup services manually after a restart, select Manual.

      Start job-related NetBackup services following installation

      By default, job-related services are set to start automatically after the installation has completed.

      To prevent job-related services from starting automatically, click on the box to clear the check mark.

      Safe Abort Option

      This option determines how the installation proceeds if a restart is required as part of the installation.

      If you select this option and the installation process determines that a restart is required, the installation stops. The system is then rolled back to its original state.

      If you do not select this option, the installation proceeds even if the installation process determines that a restart is required.

      Click Next.

  13. On the NetBackup System Names screen, provide the following information:

    Master Server Name

    (Conditional) For local master server installations, enter the name of the local computer. For a cluster installation, enter the cluster virtual server name.

    For media server installations, you must change the name to the master server name to which the media server is configured.

    Additional Servers

    Enter the names of any additional NetBackup master servers and media servers that you want to communicate with this server. Include the names of computers where you plan to install NetBackup later.

    To enter more than one name, separate each name with a comma or press Enter after each name.

    Media Server Name

    This field appears only for local NetBackup Enterprise media server installations.

    When you install media server software, this field defaults to the local server name.

    OpsCenter Server Name (Optional)

    OpsCenter is a web-based administration and management tool for NetBackup.

    If you have an OpsCenter server or plan to install one, enter the server name or the IP address for that server here.

    For a clustered server, do not use the virtual name. Instead, use the actual host name of the cluster node.

    Click Next.

  14. After you provide the required computer names, the installer determines your security configuration.
    • If the installer finds your environment uses an external certificate authority, you are presented with the External Certificate screen. Proceed to step 15.

    • If the installer finds your environment uses NetBackup Certificate Authority, you are presented with the NetBackup Certificate screen. Proceed to step16 .

  15. On the External Certificate screen, select one of the three radio buttons based on how you want to configure the external certificate authority (ECA). Depending on which one you select, you must complete different information:
    • Use Windows certificate store

      You must enter the certificate location as Certificate Store Name\Issuer Distinguished Name\Subject Distinguished Name.

      Note:

      You can use the $hostname variable for any of the names in the certificate store specification. The $hostname variable evaluates at run time to the name of the local host. This option provides flexibility when you push NetBackup software to a large number of clients.

      Alternatively, you can specify a comma-separated list of Windows certificate locations. For example, you can specify: MyCertStore\IssuerName1\SubjectName, MyCertStore\IssuerName2\SubjectName2, MyCertStore4\IssuerName1\SubjectName5

      Then select the Certificate Revocation List (CRL) option from the radio buttons shown:

      • Use the CRL defined in the certificate. No additional information is required.

      • Use the CRL at the following path: You are prompted to provide a path to the CRL.

      • Do not use a CRL.

    • Use certificate from a file

      After you select this option, specify the following:

      • Certificate file: This field requires you to provide the path to the certificate file and the certificate file name.

      • Trust store location: This field requires you to provide the path to the trust store and the trust store file name.

      • Private key path: This field requires you to provide the path to the private key file and the private key file name.

      • Passphrase file: This field requires you to provide the path of the passphrase file and the passphrase file name. This field is optional.

      • CRL option: Specify the correct CRL option for your environment:

        • Use the CRL defined in the certificate. No additional information is required.

        • Use the CRL at the following path: You are prompted to provide a path to the CRL.

        • Do not use a CRL.

    • Proceed without security

      You receive a warning message listing potential issues. Depending on the state of the current security configuration, NetBackup may be unable to perform backups or restores until an external CA certificate has been configured.

    Click Next to continue. Go to step 20 in this procedure.

  16. After you confirm you want to continue, the installer fetches the certificate authority certificate details. You have the option to click Cancel to halt this action. Be aware if you click Cancel, this action requires you to rerun the installation or continue with the installation without the required security components. If these security components are absent, backups and restores fail.
  17. Enter the Certificate Authority Fingerprint as prompted.

    After you confirm the fingerprint information, the installer stores the certificate authority certificate details. You have the option to click Cancel to halt this action. Be aware if you click Cancel, this action requires you to rerun the installation or continue with the installation without the required security components. If these security components are absent, backups and restores fail.

  18. After the Certificate Authority certificate is stored, the installer fetches the host certificate. You have the option to click Cancel to halt this action. Be aware if you click Cancel, this action requires you to rerun the installation or continue with the installation without the required security components. If these security components are absent, backups and restores fail.
  19. (Conditional) If prompted by the Security Token screen, enter the security token.

    If you were issued a security token, enter it below.

    The token format is 16 upper case letters. Alternatively, you can also select the Proceed without providing a security token option. When the option is selected, this warning is shown:

    In some environments, failure to provide a security token can result in failed backups. Contact your backup administrator if you have questions.

    After you enter a security token, you have the option to click Cancel to halt the deployment of the host certificate. Be aware if you click Cancel, this action requires you to rerun the installation or continue with the installation without the required security components. If these security components are absent, backups and restores fail.

  20. After you enter all the security information, you are prompted with the certificate status screen. If the screen indicates there are no issues, click Next to continue. If the screen Security Certificate Status indicates there are issues, click Back to reenter the required security information.

    If this install is a push install or if you selected Proceed without security, this dialog is skipped.

  21. (Conditional) For remote installations only:

    On the Veritas NetBackup Remote Hosts screen, specify the hosts where you want NetBackup installed.

    • Windows Destination Systems

      Right-click Windows Destination Computers and select from the drop-down menu, or use the following methods:

      Browse

      Click here to search the network for the hosts where you want to install NetBackup.

      • On the Available Systems dialog box, select the computer to add and click Next.

      • On the Remote Computer Login Credentials dialog box, enter the User Name and the Password of the account to be used to perform the installation on the remote computers.

      • If you plan to install to multiple remote computers, click the box next to Remember User Name and Password. Selecting this option prevents the need to enter this information for each remote computer.

      • Click OK.

      • On the Remote Destination Folder dialog box, verify or change the Destination Folder where NetBackup is installed.

        The default location is C:\Program Files\Veritas.

        If you plan to install to multiple remote computers and you want to use the same location, click the box next to Use this folder for subsequent systems. Selecting this option prevents the need to enter the location for each remote computer.

      Import

      Click here to import a text file that contains a list of host names. When you create the text file, the host names must be defined in the following format:

      Domain\ComputerName

      Add

      Click here to add a host manually.

      • On the Manual Remote Computer Selection dialog box appears, enter the Domain and the Computer Name, then click OK.

      • On the Remote Computer Login Credentials dialog box, enter the User Name and the Password of the account to be used to perform the installation on the remote computers.

        If you plan to add and install to multiple remote computers, click the box next to Remember User Name and Password. Selecting this option prevents the need to enter this information for each remote computer.

      • Click OK.

      • On the Remote Destination Folder dialog box, verify or change the Destination Folder where NetBackup is installed.

        The default location is C:\Program Files\Veritas\.

        If you plan to install to multiple remote computers and you want to use the same location, click the box next to Use this folder for subsequent systems. Selecting this option prevents the need to enter the location for each remote computer.

      • Click OK.

      Remove

      To remove a host from the Destination Systems list, select the host and click here.

      Change

      Click here to change the destination for NetBackup file installation on the selected remote host.

    • Click Next.

  22. (Conditional) For cluster installations only:

    On the NetBackup Remote Hosts screen, specify the remote system information for installation on those computers.

    • On the initial screen, right-click Browse.

    • On the Available Systems dialog box, select the computer that you want to add. Control-click to select multiple computers.

      Click Next.

    • On the Remote Computer Login Credentials dialog box, enter the user name, password, and domain that NetBackup is to use on the remote system(s).

      If you intend to add more remote computers, click the check box next to Remember user name and password.

      When you provide credentials, you select cluster nodes and add them to the Windows Destination Systems list. These are the nodes on which you remotely install NetBackup. Make sure that you select your local host when you select systems to install.

      Each time you choose a system, NetBackup performs system and license checks. For example, it verifies the system for a server installation that matches the type that you selected, as follows:

      • NetBackup not installed

      Considers the remote to be verified.

      • NetBackup already installed

      Compares the installation type on that system to the installation type that you request.

      • Invalid combination

      Notifies you of the problem and disallows the choice. One example of an invalid combination is to try to install a Remote Administration Console on a remote system that is already a master server.

      • Remote system not a supported platform or level

      Notifies you of the problem and disallows the choice.

      The installation procedure also verifies that you have proper administrator credentials on the remote system. If you do not have administrator credentials, the Enter Network Password screen appears, and prompts you to enter the administrator's user name and password.

      Click OK and continue selecting destination systems.

    This process repeats for each node that you select. You can elect to retain the user name and password. In that case, you are prompted only when the user name or password is not valid.

    Note the following about the push-install process in a clustered environment:

    • You can install NetBackup on any number of nodes. However, the clustering service sets the limit for the number of nodes in a cluster, not NetBackup.

    • Language packages and other NetBackup add-on products cannot be installed with the push method. Add-on products must be installed on each individual node in the cluster group. For instructions on how to install these products, refer to the NetBackup documentation that supports each product.

    • NetBackup pushes to the other nodes only the license keys you enter at the beginning of the installation. Your license keys may enable add-on products. If you push NetBackup to nodes that have an add-on product already installed, your key works for that product.

    Click Next.

  23. (Conditional) For cluster installations only:

    On the Cluster Settings screen, you provide the virtual and the physical network information.

    Note:

    You can add only one virtual IP address during installation. If your virtual name can resolve into more than one IP address, you can add multiple IP addresses after the installation using the bpclusterutil -addIP option. More information about the bpclusterutil command is available.

    NetBackup Commands Reference Guide

    For new installations, the following configuration settings that you enter apply to all nodes:

    Create a new Cluster Group

    For new cluster installations, select this option.

    IPv4 Clusters

    The default cluster setting is IPv4.

    Enter the following addresses:

    • Virtual IPv4 Address

      The IP address to which the virtual server name should resolve.

      For new cluster installations, you must enter the address manually.

    • IPv4 Subnet Mask

      Identifies a subnetwork so that IP addresses can be shared on a local area network. This number correlates directly to the virtual IP address of the cluster.

    IPv6 Clusters

    To enable IPv6 clusters, select this option.

    Enter the following IP address:

    • Virtual IPv6 Address

      The IPv6 address must be entered in CIDR format.

    NB Cluster Group Name

    The name that is used to identify a NetBackup service group or resource group. The resources in any resource group are related and interdependent.

    Virtual Host Name

    The name by which NetBackup is known in the cluster.

    When you install the client software, this host name must be added to the Additional Servers field on the NetBackup System Names screen.

    The server uses this name when it communicates with the client nodes.

    Path to Shared Data

    A directory on one of the shared disks in the cluster where NetBackup stores configuration information. If the letter for the disk (or drive) does not appear in the pull-down list, enter only the letter.

    Public Network

    For NetBackup clustered environments, select a public network that is assigned to the node of the cluster.

    Warning:

    You must not select a private network that is assigned to this cluster.

    Cluster Configuration

    After you set all of the parameters, click this icon to configure the cluster for use with NetBackup. The Next icon is not available until after successful cluster configuration.

    The text box provides the following information about the configuration:

    • Identifies any existing clusters or NetBackup cluster groups.

    • Indicates a successful configuration.

    • Identifies any problems or errors that occurred during the configuration (configuration failure).

    Note:

    If you click Cancel after a successful cluster configuration for new installations, a pop-up message appears. The message asks if you are sure that you want to proceed with the cancelation. To cancel the installation and remove the new cluster group, click Yes. To continue with the installation and retain the new cluster group, click No and then click Next.

    If the cluster configuration fails, see the NetBackup Clustered Master Server Administrator's Guide for information about how to resolve the problem.

    When the successful cluster configuration message appears, click Next.

  24. On the Ready to Install the Program screen, review the Installation Summary that shows your selections from the previous steps.

    Note:

    Veritas recommends that you review the summary screen for any warning messages. You can prevent installation and upgrade issues if you resolve any problems before you continue the installation.

    Then select one of the following options:

    • Click Install to start the installation.

    • Click Back to view the previous screens and make any changes, then return to this screen and click Install.

    • Click Cancel to cancel the installation.

    After you click Install, the installation process begins and a screen appears that shows you the installation progress. This process may take several minutes.

    For remote and cluster installations, up to five installations occur simultaneously. When an installation is completed, another one begins so that a maximum of five installations are in progress.

  25. On the Installation Complete screen, select from the following options:

    View installation log file

    The installation log file provides detailed installation information and shows whether any errors occurred. This log includes information about the optional installation of the Java GUI and the JRE.

    Examine the installation log at the following location:

    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Veritas\NetBackup\InstallLogs\

    Note:

    When you perform a remote or a cluster installation to multiple computers, this option only lets you view the log for the local computer. Each computer that you selected for installation contains its own installation log file. To view the log file of a remote computer, open a Windows Explorer window and enter \\<COMPUTERNAME>.

    Search the installation log for the following error indications:

    • Strings that include Return Value 3.

    • Important log messages that are color coded as follows:

      Yellow = warning.

      Red = error.

    Finish

    Select one of the following to complete the installation:

    • If you are done installing software on all servers, click the box next to Launch NetBackup Administration Console now and click Finish.

      The NetBackup Administration Console starts a Configuration Wizard so that you can configure your NetBackup environment.

    • If you have more server software to install, click Finish.

      You can move on to the next computer and install the necessary server software.

  26. (Conditional) On a clustered NetBackup master server, you must copy the Certificate Authority certificate and the host certificate to the inactive node. More information is available:

    See Generate a certificate on the inactive nodes of a clustered master server.

    If you performed a disaster recovery of the master server, you must first generate the token and then copy it to each of the inactive nodes. More information about how to handle disaster recoveries is available.

  27. (Conditional) If you plan to configure customized settings for your Tomcat web server, determine if those settings can persist across upgrades. More information is available:

    See Persistent Java Virtual Machine options.

  28. Repeat the steps in this procedure for any other servers.
  29. After all server software is installed, you are ready to install client software.
