In this lab, you perform tasks to become familiar with the NetBackup 7.7 Administration console used within this lab environment. The slide lists the tasks to be performed. Continue to Exercise 1. Lab 1-1 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION Exercise 1: Lab environment introduction The Windows-based lab environment If you use a Linux-based lab environment to perform the labs, go to the next page. Copyright @ 2015 Veritas Technologies LLC. All rights reserved. Figure 1 illustrates systems in the Windows-based lab environment for this course. Figure 1: Windows-based lab environment for the 7.7 Administration course NetBackup 7.7 software has been pre-installed on lab systems as follows: • • • winmaster – NetBackup 7.7 server and client software winmedia - NetBackup 7.7 server and client software console - NetBackup 7.7 Administration Console, NetBackup 7.7 client software, and OpsCenter 7.7 server and agent software No NetBackup software is installed on the vtl or on the VMware systems, vcenter1, esx1, winvm1, and lnxvm2.

NetBackup 7.7 software has been pre-installed on lab systems as follows: • • • lnxmaster – NetBackup 7.7 server and client software lnxmedia - NetBackup 7.7 server and client software console - NetBackup 7.7 Administration Console, NetBackup 7.7 client software, and OpsCenter 7.7 server and agent software No NetBackup software is installed on the vtl or on the VMware systems, vcenter1, esx1, winvm1, and lnxvm2. Continue to the next page. Lab 1-3 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION Power on the virtual machines in your lab environment (local VMware Workstation lab environments only) If you are attending this course in the Virtual Academy, proceed to Exercise 2. If you are performing the lab steps in a local lab environment, using VMware Workstation, you may need to power on the virtual machines before you can perform the lab steps. If the virtual machines are already powered on, proceed to Exercise 2. The virtual machines must be started in the sequence indicated in Table 1. Startup order 1 2 3 4 Copyright @ 2015 Veritas Technologies LLC. All rights reserved. 5 6 n/a n/a Virtual Machine Name Description console.example.com Domain controller, DNS, NetBackup console system Virtual tape library with tape drives NetBackup 7.7 master/EMM/media server vtl.example.com winmaster.example.com or lnxmaster.example.com winmedia.example.com or lnxmedia.example.com vcenter1.example.com esx1.example.com NetBackup 7.7 media server VMware vCenter server VMware ESX server winvm1.example.com VMware virtual machine on esx1 (Do not power on.) lnxvm2.example.com VMware virtual machine on esx1 (Do not power on.) Table 1: Virtual machine startup sequence Perform the following steps if your lab VMs are not powered on: 1. Access the VMware Workstation console. 2. Locate and select the tab for the first VM listed in the “startup order” column of Table 1. Lab 1-4 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION 3. Start/Power on the VM. Ensure that the virtual machine is completely powered on before starting the next machine. Verify that a logon prompt is displayed on the console of the VM. 4. In VMware Workstation, access the tab for the next VM listed in the “startup order” column of Table 1. 5. Start/Power on the VM, and verify that the logon prompt is displayed before proceeding to the next step. 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all VMs are powered on – in the order listed in Table 1 and the logon prompt is displayed on the console of each VM. 7. Verify that all virtual machines are powered on before continuing. It is not necessary to log on to any of the VM’s at this time. Some of the VM’s, such as the vtl, should never need to be logged into; they will just provide services in the background. Copyright @ 2015 Veritas Technologies LLC. All rights reserved. 8. Proceed to Exercise 2. Lab 1-5 CONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION Exercise 2: Launching the NetBackup Administration Console In this exercise, you perform the steps to launch the NetBackup 7.7 Administration Console and login to your master server system. 1. Access the desktop of the console.example.com system. console.example.com 2. Log on to the console system as Administrator (password = train). 3. Locate and double-click the NBU 7.7 Admin Console icon, located on the desktop of the console system. Copyright @ 2015 Veritas Technologies LLC. All rights reserved. Figure 3 illustrates the Administration Console login screen. Figure 3: NetBackup Administration Console login screen 4. Enter the Host name, User name, and Password of your master server system, and click Login. Use the values provided in Table 2. (You can use the drop-down arrows to select the Host name and User name.)
