How to share robotic libraries without using the Shared Storage Option You can share robotic tape libraries among multiple NetBackup media servers by using any of the following methods: Shared library support NetBackup allows different drives within the same robotic library to be configured on different media servers. This capability is termed shared library support. Robot types that support shared library are ACS, TL8, TLD, TLH, TLM. Partitioned libraries Some robot vendors also let you partition libraries. One partitioned view of the robotic library includes one set of drives, while the other view has a different set of drives in the library. Partitions let two robotic control daemons on different control hosts manage the robotic library — possibly each for a different NetBackup master and media server environment. These capabilities are not related to the Shared Storage Option and should not be confused with the Shared Storage Option. 61 Additional configuration About the Shared Storage Option
Shared Storage Option terms and concepts Table 2-7 describes the terms and the concepts relevant to understanding the Shared Storage Option. Table 2-7 Shared Storage Option terms and concepts Definition Term The NetBackup Shared Storage Option is not the same as the Veritas Backup Exec Shared Storage Option. The Backup Exec SSO does not include support for UNIX servers and uses a different method for drive arbitration. Backup Exec Shared Storage Option A NetBackup SAN media server backs up its own data to shared drives. It cannot back up data on other NetBackup hosts or clients. Veritas licenses NetBackup SAN media servers. SAN media servers When the Shared Storage Option is installed, a tape drive that is shared among hosts is termed a shared drive. For the drives that are attached to NDMP hosts, each NDMP attach host is considered an additional host. Shared drive About the Shared Storage Option license The Shared Storage Option is a feature that is licensed separately from base NetBackup. The NetBackup Shared Storage Option license is based on the number of physical tape drives to share. The license activates NetBackup to share the specific number of physical drives for which you are licensed. About Shared Storage Option prerequisites To configure your hardware for use with Shared Storage Option, you must ensure that the following prerequisites are satisfied: Configure your SAN environment. Attach robots and drives. Ensure that all of the servers recognize the shared devices. Device recognition may depend on operating system configuration, as follows: On UNIX or Linux servers, you may have to modify configuration files, such as the sg driver on Solaris systems.
