The Veritas Appliance Management Console is a centralized management interface for multiple appliances. It enables a single administrator to manage many appliances simultaneously. This functionality is available from NetBackup Appliance 3.1 onwards.
The Appliance Management Console is hosted on an Appliance Management Server (AMS). You can add or remove configured appliances from the Appliance Management Console.
From the Appliance Management Console, you can perform the following tasks:
Upgrade selected appliances at the same time
Install emergency engineering binary files (patches) on or uninstall them from selected appliances
Emergency engineering binary files are customer-related fixes that are incorporated into each release.
The Appliance Management Console supports NetBackup Appliances as well as NetBackup Virtual Appliances, but not Flex Appliances.
The Appliance Management Server RPM is available along with NetBackup Appliance packages from the Download Center page of the Veritas Support website at:
