Abstract

Veritas NetBackup (tm) Server / Enterprise Server 8.3 and later Linux rules file for configuring persistent robotic paths

Description

This package contains a Linux rules file that enables configuration of persistent robotic paths for Linux media servers running NetBackup 8.3 and later.

 

When this rules file has been downloaded and installed in the specified directory, NetBackup uses /dev/tape/by-path type paths that persist across SAN interruptions. If this rules file is not present, NetBackup continues to use the /dev/sg type paths.

Veritas recommends downloading and installing this package if your configuration contains a Linux media server being used for robotic control.

 

This file is for the following NetBackup configuration only and will not work with earlier NetBackup releases:

  • NetBackup Media Server 8.3 or later

 

Installation Procedure

 

1. Download and extract the zip file package to a temporary folder: 

 

     60-persistent-storage-tape-vtas.zip

 

This will create one file in the temporary location:

 

  •    60-persistent-storage-tape-vtas.rules

 

2. Copy the rules file from the temporary location to /etc/udev/rules.d/:

 

     cp /temp_dir/60-persistent-storage-tape-vtas.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

 

3. Reload the udev daemon:

 

     udevadm control --reload && udevadm trigger
