If you want to use NetBackup client as a backup host, you need towhitelist the NetBackup client on the master server.See“Whitelisting a NetBackup client on NetBackup master server”on page 18.Adding backuphostsSee“Adding OpenStack credentials in NetBackup”on page 18.Adding OpenStackcredentials inNetBackup3Chapter

A backup host performs the following functions:■Hosts all the backup and restore operations for OpenStack.■(Optional) Operates as a finger printing media server for deduplication. To usebackup host as a finger printing media server, deploy the NetBackup mediaserver.The backup host is only supported on RHEL Linux systems. See.Backup host must not be used as a shared client, wherein the media server or clientyou are using cannot associate with multiple master servers.Consider the following before adding a backup host:■For backup operations, you can add one or more backup hosts.One backup host can manage up to 40 instances, thus add the number of backuphosts accordingly.■For restore operations, you can add only one backup host.■Make sure that the backup hosts are communicating with the NetBackup mediaand master server.You can add a backup host while configuring BigData policy using either theNetBackup Administration Console or Command Line Interface.For more information on how to create a policy, see See“Configuring NetBackupBigData policy for OpenStack”on page 21.16Configuring NetBackup for OpenStackManaging backup hosts
To add a backup host1In theBackup Selectionstab, clickNewand add the backup host in thefollowing format:Backup_Host=<hostname>For more information on how to create a policy, See“Configuring NetBackupBigData policy for OpenStack”on page 21.Alternatively, you can also add a backup host using the following command:For Windows:bpplinclude PolicyName -add "Backup_Host=hostname"For UNIX:bpplinclude PolicyName -add 'Backup_Host=hostname'For more information, See“Using NetBackup Command Line Interface (CLI)to create a BigData policy for OpenStack ”on page 22.2As a best practice, add the entries of all the controller node and compute nodeto the/etc/hostsfile on all the backup hosts. You must add the host namein FQDN format.ORAdd the appropriate DNS entries in the/etc/resolve.conffile.
