Page 12

Storage administration installs Vault on a NetBackup master server.

See the NetBackup Vault Administrator�s Guide.

Install Vault

Storage administrationprovides configuration information inprofiles,
that contain the rules Vault uses to select images to duplicate or eject
from the robot. Storage administration accesses Vault through the
NetBackup Administration Console or through the Vault
Administration menu user interface (vltadm).

See the NetBackup Vault Administrator�s Guide.

Configure Vault

StorageadministrationmonitorsVault activity byusing theNetBackup
Administration Console and by reading the session log files for
information about vault sessions. If email notification is enabled in
the profile, session information is sent to the appropriate personnel.

Monitor Vault

Storage administration determines which volume pools and volume
groups hold themedia andmust allocate sufficientmedia for vaulting
needs.

See the NetBackup Vault Administrator�s Guide.

Administer media

Storage administration must report any change in daily run status to
operations. In most situations, Vault jobs are scheduled to run each
day. If duplications are ever postponed, storage administrationnotifies
operations of the job status.

See “Rerunning reports” on page 20.

About running the audit report
To create an audit report, use the All Media Inventory report. This report prints
an inventory of all media that is used for duplication of backups. First, it prints
all the media in the robot that is used for duplicates. Next, it prints all the media
that is in the off-site vault. This information is printed in order by media ID.

See “Rerunning reports” on page 20.

About resending eject commands (manually eject tapes)
SelectEjectMediaforThisSession to resend the eject commands fromaparticular
session.

Normally, this option is only used if the eject process was interrupted and some
media were not ejected from the library. This option is also used if the number of
tapes youneed to eject exceeded the size of theMAP. If there are still discrepancies
between ejected media and the Vault reports after using this command, contact
storage administration.

See “Rerunning reports” on page 20.

About injecting tapes into a robot
When you choose Inject Media into Robot, Vault moves tapes from the media
access port (MAP) to the library slots and updates the volume database.

If any problems occur during this process, contact storage administration.

See “About Vault operational procedures” on page 15.
