Installing or upgrading the plug-in in a high-availability environment

Installation of the plug-in in a high-availability environment is completed through the creation of a Virtual Client on the NetVault Backup Server. A Virtual Client is a group of nodes within the cluster. NetVault Backup Server views this group as a single client that is created to back up a single clustered resource, for example, a SQL Server Virtual Server. During the Virtual Client creation process, the plug-in is transferred from the NetVault Backup Server to selected nodes within a cluster and installed there.
