NetVault Backup Plug-in for SnapVault Manager 11.4.5 - User Guide

Using SnapVault password utility

The SnapVault Password Utility svpassword allows you to set the NetVault Backup user account and password in the SnapVault Manager configuration file to enable communication between the Plug‑in for SnapVault Manager and NetVault Backup Server. This utility must be used if the password is changed for the “default” or “admin” user accounts.

The svpassword utility is located in the netvault/bin directory on the NetVault Backup Server on which the Plug‑in for SnapVault Manager is installed.

svpassword <account> <old password> <new password>

The <old password> parameter can be omitted if no password was set for the user account.

For example, if the password for the “default” account has been changed to “test” in NetVault Backup, type the following command to set the password in the SnapVault Manager configuration file.

Generating snapshots

Transferring backup data

The procedure for transferring backup data includes the steps outlined in the following sections:

Establishing service on SV Secondary

The first step involves creating the SnapVault Snapshot Schedule (referred to as “Service” within the Plug‑in for SnapVault Manager) on the SV Secondary. This schedule allows generation of snapshots for the SV Primary data at scheduled intervals. These snapshots are held on the SV Secondary system.

1
In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration, and then on the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Create Backup Jobs.
2
To open the NetVault Backup Selections page, click Create New next to the Selections list.
4
Open SV Secondaries, and select the volume that is to serve as storage space for SV Primary backups.
5
In the Actions list, click Add Service.
6
In the Add Secondary Service dialog box, configure the following options.

Name

Type a name for the Service. Valid characters include, A–Z, 0–9, “-” (hyphen), and “_” (underscore). This field is required. After the Service is successfully configured, this name is how it is displayed in NetVault Backup when creating a Relationship between it and an SV Primary.

This check box is selected by default. It indicates that this Service is enabled after it is created. To disable the service, clear this check box from the Edit Service window.
