Netbackup 8.1 Support AHV


Netbackup 8.1 Support AHV

Netbackup 8.1 was released yesterday. One of the features is "NetBackup for Nutanix – Parallel, scale-out backups of Nutanix clusters".


Seems to only support full backups. There also is a requirement of a Linux backup host of client:

  • Backup_Host=<IP address or the hostname of the backup host>

    The backup host must be a Linux machine. The backup host can be a NetBackup client or a media server.

  • Application_Server=<IP address or the hostname of the Nutanix cluster>


Re: Netbackup 8.1 Support AHV


Netbackup has Plugin to interface to Nutanix cluster which is available as for Linux, as far as I know, it was supported on RHEL and SUSE, I will try on CentOS and let you know how it goes.





Re: Netbackup 8.1 Support AHV

I have upgraded our Solaris Master to 8.1. I'm wondering where to get the plugin.


From what I understand the plugin can be used on a Linux Netbackup Client.


Master <- Linux VM Netbackup Client <- Plugin
