The NetBackup base and update client software may be installed from a DVD, from an ISO image, from an EXE file, or from a ZIP file. This web page will cover only installation from an EXE or ZIP file provided by UMS-ITS.
Remember, please, there are four steps to installing the NetBackup client software. First, allow communication with the backup servers, then install the base software, and then install the required update, then make sure the software is configured and the NetBackup "vnetd" port ( port 13724) is open to the backup servers:
It is especially important that you verify your critical files are being backed up and can be restored. Beyond lowering your risk of being without a backup, this exercise not only gives you a chance to plan for disasters, but practice in recovering your server, should a disaster occur.
We recommend that you review your disaster recovery plans, evaluate your solutions, and practice recovery periodically (at least annually).
For more information on monitoring your backups and restores, please see the UMS NetBackup home page and especially the section on Notifications and Reporting. Also, attached to this page is the "NetBackup Installation Guide for Windows"; please note that the only thing of interest to you as a NetBackup client owner is "Chapter 5 -- Installing Clients"
