Hi,

I need to configure many Netbackup servers by script, i.e. by using a command line. Active

DOCUMENTATION: How to rebuild the globDB (global device database file) on the master
serve
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/243792.htm

Details:
Manual: NetBackup (tm) Shared Storage Option System Administrator's Guide for UNIX and
Windows
Page:
Modification Type: Addition

Modification:
Note: The globDB came about because of device discovery, specifically to coordinate and
compare discovery of NetBackup DataCenter (tm) devices that involve multiple media
servers. The globDB still has some value without device discovery. For one, it ensures that
robot numbers are not re-used across device hosts. Also, it can prevent configuration
problems like duplicated drive names for multi-hosted drives, even when manual-based
device configuration changes are made.

The globDB is valid on non-device discovery platforms. It can exist on any kind of media
server.

The first step is to verify if the globDB needs rebuild.

Open a command prompt.


In Windows NT/2000:
Click Start | Run. Type cmd and click OK.

Run install_path\veritas\volmgr\bin\vmglob -listall.

This will produce an output to screen indicating:


device type:
device name:
serial number:
hostname:
volume database hostname:
robot number:

robot drive number:

worldwide name:

If the list contains errors or inconsistencies, rebuilding the globalDB is an option to


synchronize device discovery.

Note: The procedure listed below will work on most installations, but due to the complexity of
NetBackup, may not be suitable for all configurations and environments. This procedure also
takes into account that the current device configuration is up to date and all devices have
been set up and added in the Media and Device Manager. Please contact VERITAS
Technical Services for any technical matter related to NetBackup device configuration
changes not related to this TechNote.

On the master server:


From a command prompt:

1. Run \install_path\veritas\volmgr\bin\vmglob -delete


This will delete all the global database entries.

2. Run \install_path\veritas\volmgr\bin\vmglob -set_gdbhost -h volume_database_host


This will ensure that the master server is set as the global and volume database host.
Note: The global DB host name and the volume_database_host under most circumstances
will be the host name of the master server.

3. Run \install_path\veritas\volmgr\bin\tpautoconf -upgrade


This will auto detect all previously configured devices on the master server and populate the
globalDB.

4. Run \install_path\veritas\volmgr\bin\vmglob -listall


The list should reflect all the devices configured on the master server and list the master as
host name and volume database host name for each device.

On each media server, from a command prompt:


Repeat Steps 2 through 4.

Note: After each update, the vmglob -listall command should reflect the additional devices
configured on the media servers. The volume database host name will be the master server
host name. The host name will be the media server where the device is configured.
