NetBackup appliance user interface notes
The following list contains the notes and the known issues that relate to the NetBackup Appliance Web Console and the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu:
When expanding the screen resolution to above the size of 1280*1024, and setting the font size to larger than 11, the command line interface may not display properly. To avoid this situation, do not change the default font size of the command line interface if you have adapted a large screen resolution.
If you see a hardware error on the home page of the NetBackup Appliance Web Console, but the Monitor > Hardware page does not show the error, check the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu to see the current status. The Monitor > Hardware page may not have some information that is available in the shell menu.
When you install a NetBackup client add-on package on the appliance, the Version after upgrade that displays on the NetBackup Appliance Web Console is incorrect. A client package installation does not affect the appliance software version. However, the web console displays the NetBackup version for the Version after upgrade.
The Monitor > SCSP Events page on the NetBackup Appliance Web Console does not correctly record user sessions. The logins for the user sessions are logged on the page, but the logout information is not.
The functionality of Active Directory (AD) user names is inconsistent, as described in the following scenarios:
NetBackup Appliance Web Console and NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu
These interfaces do not recognize Active Directory (AD) user names as case sensitive.
NetBackup Java Console
This interface does recognize Active Directory (AD) user names as case sensitive. When you enter these user names with all lowercase letters, access to the NetBackup Administrator's Console is granted. If you enter these user names with any or all uppercase letters, access to the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface is granted.
The command Main > Settings > Security > Authentication > LDAP > Certificate set path name in the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu does not allow path names with dashes. Path names with dashes are allowed in the NetBackup Appliance Web Console.
If your appliance is not provisioned, the following notification should appear on the NetBackup Appliance Web Console landing page:
Call Home service is not functional. Please contact Veritas Technical Support to verify if the system has been provisioned on Call Home server.
However, in certain cases, the notification does not appear. If the appliance date and time are not set per Network Time Protocol (NTP), the landing page only shows a notification to update the date and time. If you set the date and time per NTP, the Call Home notification appears.
Alert configuration is not supported from the Veritas Remote Manager. Alert configuration is supported from either the Settings > Alerts command view in the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu. For details, see the section in the NetBackup Appliance Administrator's Guide or the view commands section in the NetBackup Appliance Commands Reference Guide .menu in the NetBackup Appliance Web Console or the
