Configuring a cluster-aware plug-in

The configuration procedure for a cluster-aware plug-in includes the steps outlined in the following sections:

Configuring preferred network address for cluster nodes

A cluster node has at least two network addresses:

Public IP Address: The address that is used by machines outside the cluster to communicate with cluster nodes.
Private IP Address: The address that is used by a cluster node to communicate with other machines within the cluster.

For each cluster node, you must configure the machine’s public IP address as the “Preferred Network Address” for the node.

You can use the ifconfig utility on Linux and UNIX and the ipconfig utility on Windows to complete this step.
On the Configuration page, click Client Settings. In the NetVault Backup Clients table, select the target client, and click Next.
On the Client Settings page, under Services, click Network Manager.
In the Network Manager dialog box, specify the preferred network address for the cluster node in the corresponding box.
Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.
Repeat Step 1 through Step 6 for each cluster node.

Configuring default settings for a cluster-aware plug-in

In the Navigation pane, click Create Backup Job, and then click the Create New button next to the Selections list.
On the NetVault Backup Selections page, double-click the virtual client node. In the list of plug-ins, select the cluster-aware plug-in, and in the Actions list, click Configure.
NOTE: The default settings for a cluster-aware plug-in can only be set from the NetVault Backup Selections page. For cluster-aware plug-ins, configuring these options from the Change Settings page is not supported.
In the Configure dialog box, set the required options. The configuration options for the cluster-aware version are the same as the standard version of the plug-in. For more information about these options, see the relevant plug-in user’s guide.
Click OK to save the settings.
