Specifying resilient connections

Use the following procedure to specify resilient connections for NetBackup clients.

See Resilient Network properties.

Alternatively, you can use the resilient_clients script to specify resilient connections for clients:

  • Windows: install_path\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\resilient_clients

  • UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/resilient_clients

To specify resilient connections

  1. In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand NetBackup Management > Host Properties > Master Servers in the left pane.
  2. In the right pane, select the master server on which to specify properties.
  3. On the Actions menu, click Properties.
  4. In the properties dialog box left pane, select Resilient Network.
  5. In the Resilient Network dialog box, use the following buttons to manage resiliency for clients:

    Add

    To add resilient settings

    1. Click Add.

      The Add Resilient Network Settings dialog box appears

    2. Enter a client host name, an IP address, or an address range.

      If you specify the client host by name, Veritas recommends that you use the fully qualified domain name.

      For address ranges, use Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation (for example, 192.168.100.0/24 or fd00::/8).

    3. Ensure that the Resiliency On option is selected.

    4. Click Add.

    5. Repeat until you have finished entering clients or address ranges.

    6. When you finish adding network settings, click Close.

    Add To All

    If you select multiple hosts in the NetBackup Administration Console, the entries in the Resilient Network list may appear in different colors, as follows:

    • The entries that appear in black type are configured on all of the hosts.

    • The entries that appear in gray type are configured on some of the hosts only.

    For the entries that are configured on some of the hosts only, you can add them to all of the hosts. To do so, select them and click Add To All.

    Change

    To change resilient settings

    1. Select the client host name, the IP address, or the address range.

    2. Click Change.

      The Change Resilient Network Settings dialog box appears

    3. Select the desired Resiliency setting.

    4. Click OK.

    Remove

    Remove the select host or address rang

    1. Select the client host name, the IP address, or the address range.

    2. Click Remove.

      The client is removed immediately; a confirmation dialog box does not appear.

    Up arrow
    Down arrow

    Move an item in the list of items

    1. Select the client host name, the IP address, or the address range.

    2. Click the appropriate button to move up the item or move down the item.

      The order of the items in the list is significant.

      See Resilient Network properties.

  6. After specifying resilient connections, click OK.

    The settings are propagated to the affected hosts through normal NetBackup inter-host communication, which can take up to 15 minutes.

  7. If you want to begin a backup immediately, restart the NetBackup services on the master server.
