Data protector 8 installation
Posted on 2014-02-03
Have installed Data protector 8 on a physical server 2012 box. Have an Overland Neo2000e library with two LTO 5 drives.
Have recently migrated all data environment to a new Netapp filer so want to start doing NDMP backups from the filer but I still need to do lan backups for a couple of Solaris and Red Hat Linux boxes. Also a few remote Windows servers still need to be done over the lan.
Both tape drives, backup server and filer are fibre attached through switches and all zoned in.
Is it possible to set up the tape library/drives in DP so one tape device is dedicated to NDMP and the other to normal lan based backups? Have noticed DP says only one media agent can be installed on one server.
Having inherited the old DP setup and never actually setting up DP before we did try to find a DP consultant in UK to review and install but they seem to be like gold dust.
