About the host properties for Backup Exec

The Backup Exec UNIX agent identifies itself to the Backup Exec server by using a GRFS-advertised name. The advertised name may not be the same as the real machine name and path.

NetBackup must know the advertised name, along with the actual client name and path to create accurate.f file paths. Set the GRFS Advertised Name, Actual Client, and Actual Path properties in the Backup Exec Tape Reader host properties. If no entries are indicated, NetBackup assumes that the advertised name is the real machine name and the advertised path is the real path.
