How would I use Networker 7.4.3 as a Manged Node (Restore Station)
Posted on 2009-02-19
Currently I'm using Networker version 7.4.3 Build.569 on Sunfire V440 running Solaris 10 to backup data to a tape library (SL500.) to LTO3 media. Once the write jobs are complete the media is removed and the data is deleted from storage to free TB's of space. On occasion the the data needs to be restored. So here is what is in the works.
Built a LINUX box and have an 8 slot Hp Storage Works G2 Tape Auto Loader attached to the LINUX box. This setup will be used as a 'RESTORE STATION' to restore the data back to it's original location. Does anyone have any insight as to how this manged node should be setup? I.E. license, AutoChanger Module Enabler install, best practice for a Networker Managed Node.
Any information would be great.
