■For VCS Windows (SFW-HA 4.1 and SFW-HA 4.2) make sure the patch availableand is installed before you install or upgrade to the current NetBackup version.The patch is available at the following Web site:.Note:In few cases, after the NetBackup master cluster installation, the resourceis not installed into the service group. In case the resource of type"NetBackupVCS" is added manually, the attributes of NetBackupVCS are blankand this resource cannot probe on cluster servers. For work-around, contactTechnical Support Team.■Verify the cluster disk group(s) and dynamic volume(s) for NetBackup havebeen created on the shared storage. Refer to theVeritas Storage FoundationAdministrator’s Guidefor details on how to create these.■All disk resources that you want NetBackup to use must be configured in VeritasEnterprise Administrator (VEA) before you install NetBackup.■Verify that you have an IP address and host name (virtual name) to be assignedto the NetBackup resource in VCS. Only use these for the NetBackup clustergroup.The virtual name cannot be more than 15 characters.Also, verify that the disk resource is online on the node from which the NetBackupinstallation is about to be performed for the first time on the cluster.■For a clustered NetBackup master server, if the master server is the roboticcontrol host, physically connect the robotic devices and tape devices to each35NetBackup in a Veritas Cluster Server on WindowsInstallation prerequisites for NetBackup on VCS on Windows
node where you want to install NetBackup. Connect devices by SCSI or FibreChannel. Use OS commands to verify that all the devices are connected properly.Refer to theNetBackup Device Configuration Guide.■Verify that you have the current NetBackup Enterprise Server version or thecurrent NetBackup server version installation program and a valid license key.■On Windows, the public network names must be same on both nodes of thecluster for push-installs.■You should install NetBackup on the same path on all nodes.Installing a NetBackup failover server on VCS onWindowsThis section describes how to install and configure a new NetBackup EnterpriseServer as a failover application in a VCS for Windows cluster. If you want to upgradeNetBackup, rather than complete an initial installation, you must follow a differentprocedure.See“Upgrading a NetBackup failover server on VCS on Windows”on page 38.Review the following notes before you begin installation:■These instructions assume that this installation is a new installation of aNetBackup failover server.■You must install the same type of NetBackup server on each node to whichNetBackup may failover. You cannot have a separate failover master serverand a separate failover media server in your NetBackup configuration.
