Description

You will encounter issues during cloud storage server configuration, if the master server is installed with operating system that NetBackup Cloud does not support.

 

Action Required

If the master server is using an operating system that NetBackup Cloud does not support, you can promote one of the cloud media server (with operating system that NetBackup Cloud supports) as cloud master host.

Review the compatibility matrix.

To use media server as NetBackup cloud master host 

  1. Identify one of the NetBackup cloud media servers as a cloud master host. Choose a media server that has same NetBackup master server version. 
    Note: The media server does not hold the master copy of the CloudProvider.xml file.
  2. Run the following commands on all the NetBackup cloud media servers including the one that is selected as the cloud master host:
    nbcssc -t -a NetBackup 
    nbcssc -s -a NetBackup -m cloud_master_host -f 
    For information on the command, see Veritas NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
  3. Ensure that the values of CSSC_PORT and CSSC_IS_SECURE as mentioned in cloudstore.conf file from cloud master host are copied as CSSC_MASTER_PORT and CSSC_MASTER_IS_SECURE in cloudstore.conf file on all other NetBackup cloud media servers. 
After you select a cloud master host, do not change the name again to point to another media server. If you need to do so, contact Veritas Technical Support.

Note: Cloud storage server configuration on the promoted media server is supported only using the CLI. Do not use the original master server for cloud storage configuration.

To use a different cloud media servers for backup and restore operations

  1. Add credentials for the media servers you want to use for backup and restore operations. Run the following command from the promoted cloud media sever:
    tpconfig -add -storage_server <storage_server_name> -stype <storage_server_type> -sts_user_id <user_ID> -password <password> 
  2. Add all the media servers you want to use for backup and restore as additional servers in cloud master host
    1. Open the NetBackup Administration Console.
    2.  Go to Host Properties > Media Servers.
    3. Select the promoted cloud media server.
    4. Go to Properties > Servers  >  Additional Servers.
    5. Add the media servers you want to use for backup and restore as additional servers.
  3. (Optional) If the media server you want to use for backup and restore is on version 7.7.x, in cloudstore.conf file on the promoted cloud media server, set the value of CSSC_LEGACY_AUTH_ENABLED parameter to 1
