About backup job failover with Veritas Cluster Servers

A central administration server configuration installed in a Veritas Cluster Server environment is automatically enabled to failover a job. When you select cluster resources for backup, only a single clustered resource can be included in the backup job. This is necessary to ensure that the central administration server re-delegates the backup job to the designated failover node on the cluster.

If a failover of a clustered resource occurs during backup, the job on the managed media server stops and notification is sent to the central administration server. The central administration server then re-delegates the job to the managed media server that has become the new active node of the failed clustered resource.
