  • Backup_Host= The backup host must be a Linux machine. The backup host can be a NetBackup client or a media server.
  • Application_Server=

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.

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.


The backup host it is mandatory to be physical machine or I can use a VMware VM?
