About the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container
This is applicable to media server versions 7.7.x to 8.1.2 only.
The NetBackup CloudStore Service Container (nbcssc) is a web-based service container that runs on older media servers that are configured for cloud storage.
You can configure the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container behavior by using the Scalable Storage host properties in the NetBackup Administration Console.
The port number for the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container service is 5637. Older media servers that are configured for cloud storage must use this port. Communication with the master server fails if the older media servers use a different port. Refer to the Veritas NetBackup Network Ports Reference Guide for more information on ports used by NetBackup.
NetBackup uses several methods of security for the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container, as follows:
The NetBackup hosts on which the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container runs must be provisioned with a security certificate or certificates.
You do not need to generate a security certificate, if you have already generated it before configuring the cloud storage.
The NetBackup CloudStore Service Container can run in different security modes.
For NetBackup releases beyond 8.1.2, the
nbcssc service is no longer deployed. The NetBackup Web Management Console (
nbwmc) service handles the cloud storage configuration operations and the NetBackup Service Layer (
nbsl) service handles the throttling service and the metering data collector service functions. For media server versions beyond 8.1.2, authentication is done using host ID-based certificate.
Refer to the Veritas NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I for more information about these services.
