Is Teradata extension for Netbackup installed on Teradata nodes

Hey Guys,

I am a backup admin. Normally for backups we use to install netbackup client on all the DB nodes. Is this the case with teradata also or is the installation of Teradata extension for Netbackup limited to the BAR servers alone. If it is limited to BAR servers only How data is sent from Teradata to TARA server/Netbackup server.Awaiting your reply.

Regards,

Giri

Hi Giri,

The Teradata Extension for NetBackup is not designed to be installed on Teradata Database nodes ie. it is for backup servers.

Included with TARA is a Teradata Client stack which under the control of TARA will connect via IP/Ethernet and run backup or restore jobs which will then encapsulate and pass it through to NetBackup.
