Preinstallation Information
Installation requirements
The EMC® NetWorker® Module for Microsoft Applications (NMM) software solution
provides snapshot backup and recovery services for file systems, Microsoft applications,
and Windows system data. You can use NMM to backup and recover the following
software:
◆
Microsoft Active Directory
◆
Microsoft SharePoint Server
◆
Microsoft Exchange Server
◆
Microsoft SQL Server
◆
Microsoft Hyper-V Server
◆
Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM)
IMPORTANT
The NMM software installation includes EMC PowerSnap™, EMC Replication Manager for
PowerSnap, and Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) software. After an NMM installation,
do not use a different VSS solution other than the one installed with NMM. Data loss can
occur if a different VSS solution is used to delete shadow copies created by NMM.
Restoring an application with a different VSS solution might prevent the application from
being restored with NMM.
After installing the NMM client software, if you perform a save or rollover save operation
and then downgrade to a non-NMM client, you cannot browse the save sets created by the
NMM client with the downgraded client software. This is because NetWorker clients
cannot recognize the different format of client file index entries that are created with an
NMM client.
The following subsections describe the version, license, access, and connectivity
requirements for the installation of NMM 2.4:
◆
“Supported Microsoft Windows systems and features” on page 16

In addition to the specific Microsoft Windows versions mentioned in this guide:
◆
Install current Microsoft Windows operating system updates on NMM client hosts.
◆
Install current updates and hotfixes for each Microsoft application protected by the
NMM software.
Appendix A, “Microsoft Hotfixes Required for NMM 2.4,” provides the list of specific
hotfixes required for application backup and recovery. Download the updates and hotfixes
from the Microsoft website.
Supported network configurations
The following sections describe the basic network environments supported by an NMM
client:
◆
“Simple LAN-based environment” on page 21
◆
“LAN-based environment with a proxy client” on page 22
◆
“LAN-free environment” on page 23
◆
“LAN-free dedicated storage node environment” on page 24
Simple LAN-based environment
In a LAN-based environment, the production data is stored on a storage area network
(SAN) or direct-attached storage (DAS). The data path to the NetWorker storage node is
over a LAN. The NMM software is installed on the application server host.
Figure 1 on page 22 shows a simple LAN-based storage area network with a supported
NetWorker server, storage node, and clients.
The data moves as follows:
1. The NetWorker server contacts the application server to start the process.
2. The application server uses NMM to create a snapshot of the data on the primary
storage volume.
Figure 1 on page 22 shows example snapshots, S1 through S5.
3. The application server transfers the data from the snapshot over the LAN and onto a
backup medium such as a file type disk, advanced file type disk, tape, Data Domain
device, or Avamar deduplication node.

Figure 1 Simple LAN-based environment
LAN-based environment with a proxy client
A proxy client is a remote host that acts as a data mover (DM) to “roll over” the snapshot to
a conventional backup medium. Because the data moves from the DM host, this frees
resources on the application server. This configuration is also known as a serverless
backup.
Figure 2 on page 23 shows a LAN-based environment with a SAN and a proxy client with a
NetWorker server plus storage node and clients.
Note: The application server and the proxy client must use the same version of operating
system, NMM software, NetWorker software, and VSS Provider.
The data moves as follows:
1. The NetWorker server contacts the application server to start the process.
2. The NMM software on the application server works with other software to create a
snapshot of the data on the primary storage volume and mount the snapshot on the
proxy client.
Figure 2 on page 23, shows example snapshots S1 through S5.

Figure 2 LAN-based environment with a proxy client
LAN-free environment
The LAN-free configuration avoids the network traffic that would be generated when a
snapshot is rolled over to a conventional backup medium. The NetWorker server and the
application server communicate through the LAN. However, the data itself is not
transferred across the LAN.
Figure 3 on page 24 shows a LAN-free environment that uses a SAN with a NetWorker
server, storage node, and clients. The NMM client software is installed on the application
server. The proxy client is installed on the NetWorker storage node. Both the snapshot and
the conventional backup device are directly attached to the NetWorker storage node.
The data moves as follows:
1. The NetWorker server contacts the application server to start the process.
2. The NMM software on application server works with other software to create a
snapshot of the data on the storage volume and make it available to the proxy client.
Figure 3 on page 24 shows example snapshots S1 through S5.
3. NetWorker mounts the snapshot on the NMM proxy client, which is also a NetWorker
storage node.
4. NetWorker moves the snapshot data from the proxy client to the attached backup
medium such as a file type disk, advanced file type disk, tape, Data Domain device, or

LAN-free dedicated storage node environment
A dedicated storage node (DSN) is a storage node installed on the application host that
allows only the data from that host to be backed up to its devices. An NMM 2.4 host with
DSN support enables the following operations:
◆
LAN-free backups without a separate NMM proxy node.
◆
Backups to the SAN devices attached directly to an NMM client host.
◆
Backups to the SAN devices attached to an NMM proxy node.
DSN support is available for all applications, however for Exchange Server 2010 DAG a
RSN license is required.
DSN support for NMM 2.4 requires the following:
◆
A NetWorker storage node device that is hosted on the NMM 2.4 client by using NMC.
◆
A valid snapshot policy, for example:
Number of Snapshot = 1, Retain Snapshot = 0, Backup = All
24
◆
A NetWorker Group resource that uses the selected snapshot policy.
◆
A storage node device on the NetWorker Client resource that uses NetWorker media
pool selection criteria.
EMC NetWorker Module for Microsoft Application Release 2.4 Installation Guide
Preinstallation Information
◆
Backup device configured on the DSN.
◆
A backup device on the NetWorker server host, as required for bootstrap data, client
file indexes, and Cover Save set entries.
Note: When not using a DSN device, ensure that you manually create a default device.
Figure 4 on page 25 illustrates the data movement in a LAN-free environment with a DSN:
1. The NetWorker server starts the process by contacting the application server, which is
installed with the NMM software and a NetWorker DSN.
2. The NMM software on the application server, with other software, creates a snapshot
of the data on the primary storage volume and makes the snapshot available to the
DSN, which also resides on the application server.
Figure 4 on page 25 shows example snapshots S1 through S5 created on the storage
volume.
The NetWorker server and the application server communicate over the LAN. However,
the data itself is not transferred across the LAN because the backup medium is
attached directly to the NMM/DSN host.
3. The DSN stores the snapshot data on a conventional backup medium, such as a file
type disk, advanced file type disk, or tape.

Troubleshooting the installation
This section provides tips on troubleshoot errors that could appear if NMM is not running
correctly after a fresh installation or if moving from a previous release of NMM or
NetWorker VSS client to NMM 2.4.
The NetWorker Module for Microsoft Applications Release 2.4 Application Guide provides
more details on troubleshooting.
Errors in installation of Replication Manager
Most often, NMM installation problems are due to errors in the installation of Replication
Manager services. To troubleshoot, verify that the NMM, Replication Manager (RMagent),
and PowerSnap software are installed. For Windows Server SP2 and 2008 R2 x64 SP2, run
Programs and Features.
If the installation is not properly performed, NMM installation rolls back completely.
