Adding host ID to host name mappings
Hosts may have multiple host names or IP addresses associated with them. For successful communication between hosts, all relevant host names and IP addresses need to be mapped to the respective host IDs.
During communication, NetBackup may detect new host names or IP addresses with respect to a host ID. These host names or IP addresses can be automatically or manually mapped to the respective host ID for successful communication.
Host names or IP addresses that are detected by the system are automatically mapped to the respective host ID, if theoption on the tab is selected.
Review the following notes specific to host ID to host name mappings:
In the case of DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) hosts, dynamic IP addresses may be detected by the system during communication and added as host ID to host name mappings. You should delete such mappings.
In the case of a cluster setup, host name, and FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of virtual name are discovered during host communication.
If you redeploy a certificate on a host using a host name that is not mapped with the existing host ID, a new certificate is deployed and a new host ID is issued to the host. This is because, NetBackup considers it as a different host. To avoid this situation, you should map all available host names with the existing host ID.
To add host ID to host name mappings
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, expand Security Management > Host Management.
- On the Hosts tab, in the details pane, right-click the host that you want to modify.
- Click the Add or Remove Host Mappings option.
- On the Add or Remove Host Mappings screen, host ID of the selected client host is displayed along with the existing mappings.
- On the Add Mapping dialog box, provide the following details:
Specify host ID-to-host name mapping.
Host ID-to-host name mappings are not case-sensitive.
Specify the reason or additional information for adding this mapping for auditing purpose.
Click to save the mapping that you have added and to continue to add more mappings for the same host ID.
Click to close the dialog box without saving any changes.
To add host ID to host name mapping using the command-line interface
- Run the following command to authenticate your web services login:
bpnbat -login -loginType WEB
- Run the following command to add a host ID to host name mapping:
nbhostmgmt -add -hostid host_ID -mappingname mapping_name
