Managing and Monitoring Data Collection > HP Data Protector Data Collector Policy
Version 9.1
HP Data Protector Data Collector Policy
Prerequisites: A Data Collector must exist in the Portal, to which you will add Data Collector Policies. Also, prior to setting up a Data Collector Policy for HP Data Protector, the HP Client Manager servers must be added using Host Administration in the Portal. Typically, these servers were added during the Data Collector installation process and therefore they will appear in the Data Collector Policy list.
For specific prerequisites and supported configurations, see the APTARE StorageConsole 9.1 Certified Configurations Guide.
1. Select Admin > Data Collection > Collectors.
The list of currently configured Portal Data Collectors is displayed.
2. Select a Data Collector from the list.
3. Click Add and select HP Data Protector.
4. Enter or select the parameters. Mandatory parameters are denoted by an asterisk (*):
Sample Value
Collector’s Domain
The domain of the collector to which the collector backup policy is being added. This is a read-only field. By default, the domain for a new policy should be the same as the domain for the collector. This field is set when you add a collector. See Adding/Editing Data Collectors for details.
The domain identifies the top level of your host group hierarchy. The name was supplied during the installation process. All newly discovered hosts are added to the root host group associated with this domain. If you are a Managed Services Provider, each of your customers will have a unique domain with its own host group hierarchy.
Backup Management Server*
Select the Cell Manager server. Verify that the IP address and OS information are correct.
Cell Manager*
The Cell Manager is the server that runs session managers and core software to manage the backup details in the HP Data Protector database. Enter the name or IP address of the HPDP Cell Manager Server.
In the majority of cases, this field should contain the same server that you selected from the above Backup Management Server list; however, for special-case situations, an alias may be entered.
Backup Software Location*
On the Data Collector server, this is the home directory of the HP Data Protector Admin Client software—that is, the location of the omni commands, such as omnicellinfo and omnireport—to be used by the Data Collector server.
Remote Access Configuration
The following parameters are required only when the Data Collector server is different from the Cell Manager server.
Remote Software Location
The home directory on the HP Data Protector server where Cell Manager is installed. Typically C:\Program Files\Omniback for Windows, or /opt/omni for Linux; only required for remote access to Cell Manager.
Operating System
The operating system on which the HP Data Collector is running; only required for remote access to Cell Manager.
Cell Manager User ID
An Admin User that the Cell Manager server recognizes—either a local user account or a Windows domain user account—that has execute rights to the omnidbutil command. This command is used to obtain drive status.
Required only when the Data Collector is on a server that is different from the Cell Manager server.
Password/Repeat Password
Password for the Cell Manager User ID on the remote system.
Access Control Command
For Linux hosts: If the user ID is not root, provide the full path to access control; Example: /usr/bin/sudo
WMI Proxy Server
The server where the WMI Proxy is installed; only required for remote access to Cell Manager.
Windows Domain
The Windows domain, if applicable.
