How to setup NetBackup for Lotus Notes partitioned server
This document provides the basics for getting successful backups of a Lotus notes partitioned server using Veritas NetBackup ... This example is based on two Lotus Notes partitions on the same physical host.
Firstly, make sure the client file list contains following:
NEW_STREAM NOTES_INI_PATH = /data1/notes.ini /data1 BACKUP_TRANSACTION_LOGS NEW_STREAM NOTES_INI_PATH = /data2/notes.ini /data2 BACKUP_TRANSACTION_LOGS
NOTE: We need to specify NEW_STREAM prior to each ln partition entry in the file list.
/usr/openb/netbackup/bp.conf on the NBU client, add:
LOTUS_NOTES_PATH = /data1:/opt/lotus/notes/latest/sunspa:/opt/lotus/notes/latest/sunspa/res/C
We only need to specify the first lotus notes partition. One entry is sufficient. It does not need to be replicated, or need to be different for each partition.
NOTE: There are three separate components of this path statement each separated by a colon (:). There are no "spaces" in the path.
Component 1: Domino data directory (first installed partition) Component 2: Location of the libraries for Domino Component 3: Resource library for localization (c = english)
