Checking access to a virtual client

For a backup or restore job to complete successfully for a virtual client, at least one member client must be online and active. You can use the Check Access option to find out the accessibility status of the member clients.

On the Virtual Client page, click Check Access.
Click OK to close the dialog box.

Determining the current real client

You can use the Current Real Client option to find out which machine is in control of the cluster application.

On the Virtual Client page, click Current Real Client.
Click OK to close the dialog box.

Removing a virtual client

You can remove a virtual client if you no longer want to use the associated plug-in in a cluster setup. When you remove a virtual client, the cluster nodes added as NetVault Backup Clients are not removed from the server. However, it removes the ability of the plug-in to back up the cluster data.

On the Virtual Client page, click Remove.
In the Confirm dialog box, click Remove.

Backups using cluster-aware plug-ins

The procedure for performing backups using the Plug-in for FileSystem is similar for both standard and virtual clients. The cluster-aware version of the plug-in can be used in the same manner as the standard version to select the data items. However, when you open the virtual client node on the NetVault Backup Selections page, only the cluster-aware plug-in is listed under the node. The plug-in displays both shared and local drives and mount points in the selection tree. You must make a note of the drive letter or mount point for the shared resource and select the data accordingly. The backup options that can be set for the standard version are also available with the cluster-aware version.

For information about backing up data in the Exchange Server Clustered environment, Oracle RAC setup, SQL Server Failover Cluster, and MySQL Server Failover Cluster, see the relevant plug-in user’s guide.

Note the following:

NOTE: For cluster backups and restores, the virtual client name is displayed on the Job Status page and the actual client name is displayed on the View Logs page.

If a failover occurs during a backup, the job is aborted and the status “Job Failed” is returned. You can use the Job Retry scheduling option to run the job again after the failover completes.

With the Plug-in for FileSystem, when a failover occurs on Windows, the reason for the failover has a direct bearing upon the status of the failed job. Depending on the reason, the job returns the following exit status:
