Licensing prerequisites for a Windows system

When preparing to license NetBackup Vault on a Windows system, the NetBackup master server must be installed and running on the Windows machine. Vault cannot be installed on a NetBackup media server or on a NetBackup client. In addition, you must have a valid NetBackup Vault license key.


If the license key for NetBackup Vault was included in the license key for the base NetBackup product, you do not have to perform this procedure.

To add the Vault license key

  1. From the NetBackup Administration Console , choose Help > License Keys.

  2. In the NetBackup License Keys dialog box, click New.

  3. In the License Key dialog box, enter the NetBackup Vault license key.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Click Close to close the NetBackup License Keys dialog box.

    To complete a new installation, you must configure the NetBackup attributes that Vault uses. You must also identify which NetBackup policies you want to use with Vault (or create new ones to use with Vault). Be sure to configure an email address for notification of sessions status and enter alternate media server names, if appropriate.
