Question Symantec Net Backup Server


I have been tasked to build a Net Backup server on the LAN for our production server backups. I just received our Dell PowerEdge 2950 hardware and began installing the OS (RHEL 5.2 x86_64) and was wondering what dependencies does Net Backup require? I was told to make sure this server does have X Windows and a Desktop Manager so we can run the GUI for the software but beyond that, does anyone know any items I should make sure are present on the system?

Thanks for any tips and or advice.

From my experience, it really doesn't require anything except the OS itself. A basic minimal install will usually provide all or if any dependencies it will need. The versions I used had a Java GUI so that is really the only requirement I can tell you, if the newer versions use it. It doesn't even really need X running either, you can use X11 forwarding to control from your own desktop or install the client version on your machine to connect to administer.

Oh - so you're saying I could just install a minimal OS on RHEL with Java and simply ssh -x/Y to my own machine?

No, if you don't install the GUI client for Netbackup on your own machine, you can launch from the actual server by ssh -X user@backupserver to enable X11 forwarding to launch the GUI. Kind of slower that way but then again, most of the time when you setup backups, you rarely need to go poking around, you can setup notifications to email you when a backup fails, etc.

Raid 5, generous amt of RAM, 4gb HBA card, 2xgigabit ports would be great to drive your tape library...
