Using NetBackup CLI to add DR Series system name (Windows)

This topic describes how to use the NetBackup CLI to add the DR Series system name to each Windows-based media server you plan to use with the DR Series system.

$INSTALL_PATH\VERITAS\Volmgr\bin\tpconfig -add -storage_server servername -stype QUEST -sts_user_id backup_user -password password

Configuring NetBackup for the DR Series system

Use the NetBackup graphical user interface (GUI) to configure it to work with the DR Series system via RDA with OST. This process is essentially the same type of operation for either the Linux or Windows platforms.

Log in to NetBackup, and complete the following:

1.
In the main window of the NetBackup Administrator console, click Configure Disk Storage Servers to launch the Storage Server Configuration Wizard.
The Storage Server Configuration Wizard page is displayed, which is where you can add a storage server.
2.
Select OpenStorage to choose the type of disk storage that you want to configure in this window, and click Next.
The Add Storage Server page is displayed.
In Storage server type, enter DELL or QUEST as appropriate.
In Storage server name, enter the name of the DR Series system.
In the Select media server drop-down list, select the desired media server (the server on which you are configuring RDA with OST).

The credentials should be the same as the credentials that are required for the DR Series system. For more information, see Configuring an LSU.

4.
Click Next.
The Storage Server Configuration Summary page is displayed, which lists the values you configured.
5.
Click Next.
6.
Click Next and click Finish to close the Storage Server Configuration Wizard.
The Storage server servername successfully created page is displayed. NetBackup is now configured for use with the DR Series system.

Configuring NetBackup for optimized synthetic backups

This procedure describes how to configure NetBackup so that it supports optimized synthetic backups. Optimized synthetic backups use RDA with OST to share data between images and synthesize the backup directly on the DR Series system without data being read to and written from the backup server. This saves time, expense, and space.

To configure NetBackup to use optimized synthetic backups:

For ss_name, make sure to type the name of the storage server as you configured it in NetBackup.
For dp_name, make sure to type the name of the disk pool as you configured it in NetBackup. Make sure to add the OptimizedImage flag to the storage server first, and then to the disk pool.

Creating disk pools from LSUs

Use the NetBackup graphical user interface (GUI) to configure disk pools from logical storage units (LSUs) on the DR Series system.

Log in to NetBackup, and complete the following steps:

1.
In the main window of the NetBackup Administrator console, click Configure Disk Pools to launch the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard.
The Disk Pool Configuration Wizard page is displayed, which is where you define media servers for use in a disk pool.
2.
In the Welcome to the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard page, click Next.
The Disk Pool page is displayed.
3.
In Type, select OpenStorage, and click Next.
The Select Storage Server page is displayed, and contains a list of available storage servers.
4.
In the Storage server list, select a server, and click Next.
The Disk Pool Properties page is displayed.
The Disk Pool Properties page is displayed.
6.
Enter a Disk pool name, and click Next.
The Summary page for the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard is displayed.
7.
Verify the disk pool configuration in the Summary page, and click Next to configure the disk pool you created.
The Performing required task page is displayed, with the status being: Configuration completed successfully. You have several options available at this point:
Clear the Create a storage unit for the disk pool.
Click Finish and close the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard.
Click Next to create the storage unit with this disk pool.
NOTE: If you create the storage unit using the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard, you can skip the step where you create storage units using a disk pool.
8.
Click Next to continue with creating a storage unit using this wizard.
9.
Enter a Storage unit name, and click Next.
The Successfully Completed Disk Pool Configuration page is displayed.
10.
Click Finish.

To display the disk pool you created, click Devices → Disk Pools in the left navigation pane in the NetBackup Administrator console.
