1.      Prerequisite

--For Solaris, SUNWcry64 package is required 
Usage: (1) tar xvf Sol8_sparc_SunWcry.tar
                        (2)pkgadd –d fullpathname (It is OK to only install SUNWcry64)
                --For Linux: N/A
2.        Installation (Replace the storage_server_name, media_server_name, user_name and user_password in the commands with the actual ones )
  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdevconfig -creatests -storage_server storage_server_name -stype PureDisk -st 9 -media_server media_server_name
  •  /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpconfig -add -storage_server storage_server_name -stype PureDisk -sts_user_id user_name  -password user_password
  •  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdevconfig -getconfig -storage_server storage_server_name -stype PureDisk -configlist file.txt 
  •  vi /file.txt . Then, fulfill in this file as follows:
V6.5 "storagepath" "/Storage" string
V6.5 "spalogin" "user_name" string
V6.5 "spapasswd" "user_password" string
V6.5 "spalogretention" "2" int
V6.5 "verboselevel" "5" int
  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdevconfig -setconfig -storage_server media_server_name -stype PureDisk -configlist file.txt
  •  launch NBU Admin Console, use “Disk Pool Configuration Wizard” to finish the rest configuration.
3.      Do a full backup and restore job, ensure it's successful. 
1.      Unlike Windows platform, the “file.txt” does not locate in /user/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd, but in the current directory by default. You can manually specify the path for the“file.txt” .
2.      using CLI to create a full schedule. It is like this: (suppose policy name is pdde_docs)
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplsched pdde_docs -v -M media_server_name -add sched_label
3.      The configuration command above also applies for Linux platform (tested on RedHat 4)
4.      According to PureDisk  documentation, a separately partition named “/Storage” is required to create for storage (The partiton name is case sensitive).
