It acts much like a normal media server and you just do that, you just have to get the license installed to allow it to be a SAN Media server.
As such it can only back itself up. If you have direct attached drives you issue. If you have a library - you can have some drives just used by that server (but if those drives fail it cannot use any of the other drives in the library) If you want your normal media server and your SAN media server to use any drives in the library you will need to get an SSO license so they can all share the same drives. Not that setting up a SAN media server does not make it backup over the san... if you want that you will have to set up the Fibre Transport - you will need to look more into that as it only works with specific hardware. -----Original Message----- From: veritas-bu-boun...@mailman.eng.auburn.edu [mailto:veritas-bu-boun...@mailman.eng.auburn.edu] On Behalf Of Thomas Hemmingby Espe Sent: Tuesday, January 12, 2010 6:28 AM To: VERITAS-BU@mailman.eng.auburn.edu Subject: [Veritas-bu] Netbackup SAN Media Server We are about to set up a system with a NBU SAN Media Server to give the system direct access to tape drives due to high throughput requirements. I have not been able to find any documentation on how to install and set up this. Is it so that we should perform an ordinary media server installation and configuration? Is it only the license that is different? Sincerely -- Thomas H.
