I am attempting to install Netbackup 6.5 and then 6.5.5 on a Windows 2008 R2 server for the first time. I've done this with Windows 2003 many times before.
This time, during the install of Netbackup client, I get the error message "cannot communicate with the master server.... Do you wish to proceed"
I have the master server listed in the windows server's host file because it is not in the windows domain. I can ping the master server from the windows server. (My master server is a Solairs 9 server.
The firewall on the windows server is the only firewall between the two servers. I've added the 2 required ports for Netbackup for both inbound and out bound traffic.
This was my first install and use of Windows 2008.
