About AdvancedDisk storage servers
A storage server is a NetBackup media server that mounts the disk storage and writes data to and reads data from the disk storage.
For AdvancedDisk, NetBackup media servers function as both storage servers and data movers.
Multiple storage servers can exist. The storage servers share the storage equally.
If you configure more than one storage server, be aware of the following:
Each media server must mount the file systems of all the disk volumes within a disk pool.
The mount points must be the same on each media server.
NetBackup does not validate mount points, so you must ensure that the mount points are the same for each media server. You also must ensure that the mount points are valid.
To obtain a consolidated list of disk volumes, NetBackup queries every media server. For large sets of servers, queries may affect performance.
Disk volume status is monitored on a single media server. Which server monitors the status can change. Therefore, a change in disk volume availability on one media server may not be reflected in the disk volume status NetBackup reports.
An AdvancedDisk storage server can have the attributes that can help you manage your restore and your duplication traffic.
Storage servers are eithertype or type.
Whether or not you want to specify storage server attributes or use encryption determines how you configure the storage servers.
