Verify that NetBackup server configuration settings match DSA requirements.
  1. Verify NetBackup configured media servers, timeout, and file sharing.
    Verification Location
    Media servers Check that the media servers are defined in /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf.
    Example media server values:
    MEDIA_SERVER = pitmedia
    MEDIA_SERVER = pitdbar
    Server timeout Check that a timeout is defined for master and client media servers in /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf
    Example timeout value:
    File sharing
    1. Check that a No.Restrictions file exists in /usr/openv/netbackup/db/altnames.
    2. Check that shared memory is enabled in /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config.
    3. If file sharing is not set up, run the following:
      cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/altnames
      touch No.Restrictions
      chmod 644 No.Restrictions
      cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config
      chmod 777 shm
  2. If you installed NetBackup after you installed DSA, change the following values:
    1. Modify the export values in the /etc/profile file.
      export NBU_ADMIN_DIR=/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/
      export PATH=$NBU_ADMIN_DIR:$PATH
      export NBU_DIR=/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/
      export PATH=$NBU_DIR:$PATH
    2. Grant access privileges to dscuser in /usr/openv/netbackup/bin.
      chmod 755 /usr/openv/netbackup/bin
      chmod 755 /usr/openv/netbackup/logs
      chmod 755 /usr/openv/lib
    3. Change the permissions for the bplist and bpexpdate commands.
      chmod 4755 /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bplist                
      chmod 4755 /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpexpdate
      chmod 4555 /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bppllist
