Configure CloudPoint servers in NetBackup

You can now add a CloudPoint server using the NetBackup Web UI. Starting with 8.3, the CloudPoint can discover cloud assets on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure US Government cloud.

Consider the following important points:

  • You can associate multiple CloudPoint servers to a NetBackup master server. But you can associate only one CloudPoint server to one NetBackup master server.

  • You can associate multiple media servers to a CloudPoint server. Only the media servers that are linked to your NetBackup master server can be linked to a CloudPoint server.

  • You can now manage CloudPoint and control discovery of assets from the NetBackup WebUI, REST API, and CLI without interacting with the CloudPoint interfaces.

  • For backup from snapshot jobs, the NetBackup media storage associated servers are used instead of CloudPoint associated media servers. The NetBackup media storage associated servers must be connected to the CloudPoint server to facilitate all the CloudPoint related operations.

The following table describes the underlying tasks.
