Lab Intro: Introducing the lab environment This lab activity provides you with an introduction to the lab delivery environment used for this course, enabling you to successfully navigate and use the lab systems provided for the course. Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. Symantec NetBackup courses may be delivered in a number of settings: • In a traditional classroom, with physical systems provided for performing lab activities. • In a virtual classroom, with online access provided to lab systems. 5 Regardless of the setting in which you attend this Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot course, the lab environment is provided using virtual lab systems. The lab systems are deployed using one of two delivery platforms: • VMware Workstation • The Hatsize delivery platform The user interfaces provided in these two lab delivery environments are different from one another. This lab introduction activity provides you with practice navigating and performing typical activities related to the use of the virtual machines provided for this course. CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION Lab Intro: Introducing the lab environment Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. A–5 Lab environment overview The labs for this course are performed within a virtual environment consisting of eight virtual machines (VMs), as illustrated on this slide. This virtual environment has been developed specifically for this course and is detailed in the next sections. In certain lab activities of the course it is important that you perform lab steps on both UNIX-based and Windows-based NetBackup systems. The details of the Linux-based and Windows-based NetBackup environments are described on the next pages of this lab guide. Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. Note: To prepare for the labs for the remainder of the course, please perform all exercises in this lab activity that are relevant to the lab environment used in this course - VMware Workstation or Hatsize - regardless of your operating system preference. 6 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION A–6 Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot: UNIX Labs Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation.

Virtual machine log on credentials Of the virtual machines provided in the lab environment, it is only necessary to log on to five VMs to perform the lab steps in this lab activity. The virtual machines and the user credentials to access these VMs are listed in Table 1. The lab steps identify the student user account as the account to us for most operations. In some cases on Linux VMs, the lab instructions direct you to become the superuser, root.

A–11 Non-default environment settings The systems have been modified to minimize the amount of operating systemrelated manipulation that is required, to enable you to focus on NetBackup operations. The slide list the most important changes. Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. It is important to note that the PATH setting makes typing commands easier, but can obscure the location of the commands themselves. See the Symantec NetBackup Commands Reference Guide, UNIX, Windows, and Linux Release 7.5 (NetBackup_75_RefGuide_Commands.pdf) for details. 12 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION A–12 Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot: UNIX Labs Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. Conventions used in this lab guide A number of conventions have been adopted to avoid unnecessary repetition and reduce clutter in the lab instructions. These are listed on the slide. In addition, whenever you are required to access a particular VM, the relevant instructions are preceded by a flag as illustrated below. This flag directs you to access the console of the winmaster.example.com system. winmaster Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. Virtual machines powered-on state 13 After completing this lab activity, all of the virtual machines in the lab environment remain powered on for the remainder of the course. Note: To prepare for the labs for the remainder of the course, please perform all exercises in this lab activity that are relevant to the lab environment used in this course - VMware Workstation or Hatsize - regardless of your operating system preference.

A–13 Accessing virtual machines Depending on how and where you attend the Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot: UNIX Labs class, access to the virtual machines in the lab environment may be provided in either of two ways. Your instructor will direct you to the appropriate set of lab procedures for the environment you are using in this class. Working with VMware Workstation If you are working with VMware Workstation, in either a physical or virtual classroom, continue to VMware Workstation lab introduction on page A-15. Working with Hatsize Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. If you are working with Hatsize, locate and complete the exercises beginning with Hatsize lab introduction on page A-33. 14 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION A–14 Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot: UNIX Labs Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. Lab Intro: VMware Workstation lab introduction In this lab activity, you become familiar with the VMWare Workstation user interface that is used when the Symantec NetBackup 7.5: Maintain and Troubleshoot: UNIX Labs course is attended at a Symantec training facility. Copyright © 2013 Symantec Corporation. All rights reserved. In this exercise you perform multiple tasks in VMware Workstation, including: • Starting (powering on) the virtual machines. • Logging on to specific virtual machines in the lab environment. • Adjusting the VMware view using quickswitch. • Verifying successful network communications between virtual machines. 15 The hands-on portion of this lab activity enables you to perform basic operations on virtual machines, as shown on the VMware Workstation introduction slide. Adopting the best practice guidelines provided in this lab enables you to perform the remaining lab activities of this course more efficiently. Note: The exercises in this section apply to VMware Workstation lab environments. The introduction for Hatsize lab environments is located in a separate lab activity, Hatsize lab introduction on page A-33. Two parallel versions of the lab activities included in this course enable you to choose the level of detail that suits your NetBackup experience level: • Appendix A provides step-by-step lab instructions. • Appendix B provides complete lab instructions and solutions.
