Adding backup media servers to your cloud environment
You can add additional media servers to your cloud environment. Additional media servers can help improve backup performance. Such servers are known as data movers. The media servers that you add are assigned the credentials for the storage server. The credentials allow the data movers to communicate with the storage server.
A NetBackup media server must conform to the requirements for cloud storage.
To add backup media servers to your cloud environment
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand Media and Device Management > Credentials > Storage Servers.
- Select the cloud storage server.
- From the Edit menu, select Change.
- In the Change Storage Server dialog box, select the Media Servers tab.
- Select the media server or servers that you want to enable for cloud backup. The media servers that you select are configured as cloud servers.
- Click OK.
- For AT&T and Rackspace cloud providers only, do the following:
Copy the appropriate configuration file from the media server that you specified when you configured the storage server. The file name depends on your storage vendor. The following is the format:
The file resides in the following directory, depending on operating system:
UNIX and Linux:
Save the file to the appropriate directory on the media server or servers that you added, as follows:
UNIX and Linux:
If you do not copy the
libstspiVendorName.confto the new media server, any backups that attempt to use the media server fail. The backups fail with a NetBackup Status Code 83 (media open error).
- Modify disk pools, storage units, and policies as desired.
