NetWorker components
Several components make up the NetWorker environment and provide the ability to
protect against data loss.
The following figure illustrates the main components in a NetWorker environment.
20
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Introduction
Figure 1 NetWorker components
NetWorker Authentication Service
The NetWorker Authentication Service provides centralized token-based
authentication to components in a NetWorker 9.0.x environment. You can configure
the NetWorker Authentication Service to use a local user database or external identity
providers (LDAP and AD) for authentication.
NetWorker Server
The NetWorker Server provides services to back up and recover the data of any
NetWorker host in a datazone. The NetWorker Server also acts as a storage node and
can control multiple remote storage nodes.
NetWorker Server databases
The following table summarizes the different databases that a NetWorker Server uses
to manage a datazone.
Table 3 NetWorker server database functions
Database
Function
Client File Index (CFI)
Tracks the files that belong to a save set.
Each configured NetWorker client has one
client file index. The client file indexes can

Database
Function
grow to become prohibitively large over time
and can negatively impact backup
performance.
Media database (mm)
Tracks the following information:
l
The volume name.
l
The location of each save set fragment on
the physical media (file number/file
record).
l
The backup dates of the save sets on the
volume.
l
The file systems in each save set.
Note
There is only one media database per server.
The media database can grow to become
prohibitively large over time and negatively
impact backup performance.
Jobs (jobsdb)
Stores, for a limited time, information about
NetWorker job operations, for example:
l
Scheduled and queued backup and
recovery operations.
l
Realtime backup and restore related
activities.
l
All NMC server communication.
Recovery operations do not require the data
that is stored in the jobsdb database.
Resource (resdb)
22
Stores the configuration information for a
NetWorker Server, for example:
l
NetWorker client backup configurations.
l
Scheduled recover configurations.
l
Pool configurations.
l
Device configurations.
Client push (cpdb)
Stores configuration information for the
Client push application.
nsrla
Stores configuration information for the
NetWorker Remote Exec (nsrexecd)
service.
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Introduction
NetWorker Message Queue Adapter
The NetWorker Message Queue Adapter component on the NetWorker Server
enables programs to use the message bus to access the NetWorker Server.
The NetWorker Message Queue Adapter daemon (nsrmqd) translates the
communications that occur between a message protocol and NetWorker Remote
Procedure Call (RPC) functions.
The Backup and Recovery Manager software and the Hyper-V File Level Recovery
(FLR) feature in NetWorker Module for Microsoft (NMM) software use the message
queue adapter to communicate with the NetWorker Server and NetWorker Server
components.
NetWorker Block-Based Backups
Block-Based Backup (BBB) is a NetWorker software feature that enables you to back
up data on a Windows or Linux host by traversing a volume or disk at the block level.
When you install the NetWorker software on a Window host, the installation
automatically installs the files that the BBB feature requires. On supported 64-bit
Linux hosts, install a separate BBB software package to provide a NetWorker host
with BBB support.
The EMC NetWorker Online Software Compatibility Guide provides more information
about operating system support for BBB.
NetWorker Client
The NetWorker Client software communicates with the NetWorker Server to support
backup and recover functionality. The NetWorker 9.0.x software provides you with
two client packages: a base client package and an extended client package. Install the
NetWorker Client software on each host that requires backup and recovery support.
Before you install the NetWorker Client software, ensure that NetWorker supports the
specific client operating system and hardware configuration. The EMC NetWorker
Online Software Compatibility Guide provides the most up-to-date information about
compatibility.
NetWorker Extended Client package
The NetWorker software includes an NetWorker Extended Client package, which
provides NetWorker hosts with additional feature support.
Install the NetWorker Extended Client package if you require the following
functionality on the host:
l
NetWorker Snapshot Management (NSM)
l
Network Attached Storage (NAS) snapshot
l
CLI utilities for server reporting and administration, for example mminfo,
nsradmin, and nsrinfo
l
Firewall tunneling tools
l

On Windows hosts, the NetWorker Server or NetWorker Storage Node installation
automatically installs the NetWorker Extended Client package. The NetWorker Base
Client installation does not install the NetWorker Extended Client package.
On UNIX hosts, install a separate NetWorker Extended Client package to enable
additional feature support.
NetWorker Storage Node
NetWorker can back up data to local devices on a NetWorker Server or remote
devices on a storage node. A storage node controls storage devices such as tape
drives, disk devices, autochangers, and silos.
The NetWorker Server is a local storage node. Use a remote storage node to offload
most of the data movement in a backup or a recovery operation from the NetWorker
Server. A remote storage node improves performance, but it requires high I/O
bandwidth to manage data transfer from local clients or network clients to target
devices. The operating system of a remote storage node can differ from the
NetWorker Server.
NMC Server
The NetWorker Management Console (NMC) server or Console server is a Java-based
web application and database server. The NMC Server manages all NetWorker
Servers and Clients. The NMC Server also provides reporting and monitoring
capabilities for all NetWorker Servers and Clients in the environment. NMC Server
relies on the NetWorker Authentication Service for user account authentication.
Datazone
A NetWorker datazone is composed of a single NetWorker Server, its clients, and
storage nodes. You can add additional datazones as backup requirements increase.
NetWorker REST API
The NetWorker REST API is an interface that allows customer to access the
NetWorker data protection service and to build client applications that automate
NetWorker operations. The EMC NetWorker REST API Getting Started Guide describes
how to use NetWorker REST API, and the EMC NetWorker REST API Reference Guide
provides a full description of the API resources.

provides more information.
EMC Licensing Solution
NetWorker 9.0.x introduces the EMC Licensing Solution, a new EMC standard for
licensing in software products. The EMC Licensing Solution uses an EMC License
Server and reads a license file to determine which products are licensed and how
much storage space to request for each datazone in the environment.
All new installations of NetWorker 9.0.x use the EMC Licensing Solution. The chapter
"EMC Licensing Solution" in the EMC NetWorker Licensing Guide provides information
on how to implement the EMC Licensing Solution for new and upgraded installations
of NetWorker 9.0.x. The "EMC Licensing Solution" chapter also describes the new
EMC License Server and the use of the license file.

NetWorker Authentication Service
NetWorker 9.0.x uses the NetWorker Authentication Service to authenticate
NetWorker Management Console (NMC) and command line interface (CLI) users.
To use a Linux NetWorker Server, install and configure the NetWorker Authentication
Service package on the NetWorker Server host before you install NMC Server
software. When you use a Windows NetWorker Server host, the NetWorker Server
installation process automatically installs the NetWorker Authentication Service
software on the NetWorker Server host.
The NetWorker Authentication Service requires 64-bit Java 8. Before you start the
NetWorker Server installation, install the latest version of the 64-bit Java 8 on the
host. Before you install the Java software, stop NMC and any NetWorker Server
daemons and set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
Before you install the NetWorker Server software, ensure that an application does not
exist on the NetWorker Server that uses an Apache Tomcat instance on port 8080.
The NetWorker Authentication Servicelistens on port 8080 by default. The section
"Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server connection issues" provides more
information.
Note
If the installation does not detect 64-bit Java 8 on the host, the installation will not
continue.
Java requirements for a NetWorker server
The installation for the NetWorker server software and the Linux configuration script
for the NetWorker Authentication Service software check for the required Java
version on a host. When the process or script does not detect the minimum required
Java version (64-bit Java 8u60) on the host, the installation cannot continue. Before
you start the NetWorker Server installation, install the latest version of the 64-bit
Java 8 on the host. Before you install the Java software, stop NMC and any
NetWorker Server daemons and set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
The following sections describe how to ensure that you are using the correct version
of the Java software on a Windows or Linux NetWorker server.
Determining the Java version on Windows
On Windows, the NetWorker server installation checks to ensure that 64-bit Java 8 is
installed on the host. If the 64-bit Java 8 is not installed on the host, the NetWorker
server installation cannot continue.
To determine which version of Java is installed on the host, perform the following
steps.
Procedure
1. In Control Panel, select Programs and Features.
2. In the list of installed programs, find the Java program. When the host has the
64-bit version of Java installed, (64-bit) appears beside the Java version
number. The following image provides an example of a host that has the 64-bit
version of Java 8.
28
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Software Requirements
Figure 2 Java version
3. If required, download the 64-bit version of Java from the Java website, and
then install the Java software.
Determining the Java version on Linux
On Linux, the NetWorker server software installation does not check to ensure that
64-bit Java 8 is installed on the host. After the installation completes, NetWorker
daemons will not start correctly if Java is not installed on the host.
Use the java command to determine what Java version is on the Linux host.
Procedure
1. From a command prompt, type:
java -version
For example, when 64-bit JRE 8u45 is installed on the host, output similar to
the following appears:
java version "1.8.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed
mode)
2. If required, download the 64-bit version of Java from the Java website, and
then install the Java software.
Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to JRE 1.8
Before you install the NetWorker software, set the JAVA_HOME environment variable
to the directory for the 64-bit JRE software.
Procedure
1. Log in to the target host with a user that has administrator privileges.
2. Browse to Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings.
3. On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables...
4. In the System Variables section, click New.
5. In the Variable name field, type JAVA_HOME.
6. In the Variable value field, type the path to the Java directory.
For example, C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_xx
7. Click OK.
8. Click OK to close the Environment Variables window, and then click OK to
close the System Properties window.

Software Requirements
NMC Server features and system requirements
The NMC Server enables you to manage, monitor, and generate reports for multiple
NetWorker Servers across multiple datazones and from a single host.
The NMC Server embeds the following software:
l
Apache server, which downloads NMC jar files and starts the NMC Server
daemons or services.
l
PostgreSQL database, which stores reports and the NMC Server configuration
information.
The NMC Server software package is supported on a Linux or Microsoft Windows
host. The NMC Server software requires the NetWorker Client software.
You can install the NMC Server software on the NetWorker Server. The minimum
system requirement for a NMC Server host is 1 GHz and 512 MB of RAM. However,
EMC does not recommend that you install the NMC Server software on a NetWorker
Server in the following scenarios:
l
When the NetWorker Server manages 50 or more clients.
l
When the NMC Server monitors multiple datazones.
Size the NMC Server by using the following calculations, which are based on the
number of monitored NetWorker Servers:
l
50 servers—Use an NMC Server with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less
than 2 GB of RAM.
l
100 servers—Use an NMC Server with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less
than 4 GB of RAM.
l
200 servers—Use an NMC Server with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less
than 8 GB of RAM.
Multi-locale datazone requirements
This section provides guidance for your multi-locale datazone NetWorker installation.
The NetWorker software enables you to confiugre hosts to run in different locales and
supports a multi-locale datazone. The NetWorker software includes language pack
support for French, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and English locales.
The NetWorker command line interface (CLI), the NMC server graphical user
interface (NMC GUI), and the NetWorker User program are I18N compliant.
In a multi-locale datazone, you can display data and remotely manage the NetWorker
environment in the locale that is defined on the local host. NetWorker supports
different locales on the local host, the NetWorker server, and the NMC server.
The NetWorker software supports:
30
l
Languages and character sets that the underlying OS supports.
l
UTF-8 encoded input and output files.
l
Non-English scheduled backup and archive requests.
l
Non-English mounts on UNIX hosts. The NetWorker software detects these
mounts during an All save set backup.
l
Directed recovery to a non-English relocation directory.
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Software Requirements
l
Save set recovery of a non-English save set, independent of the locale of the
source host.
The EMC NetWorker Administration Guide describes how to perform NetWorker tasks
in a multi-locale datazone.
General multi-locale considerations
Before you install the NetWorker software in a multi-locale datazone, consider how
textual elements might display or what message files support localization."
To view localized textual elements in the CLI, the NMC server GUI, and the NetWorker
User application:
l
Install the required language font on the operating system of the host that is
accessing the application interface.
l
Enable the corresponding language locale on the operating system of the host that
accesses the application interface.
l
Enable the corresponding language locale on the NMC server.
l
Install the corresponding language pack, which is included with the NetWorker
software package, on the NetWorker Client, NetWorker Server, NetWorker
Storage Node, and NMC Server.
Note
Textual elements include radio buttons, menu options, dates, times, and numbers.
The NetWorker software does not support locales that the operating system defines
or code sets that remap characters that have a special meaning for file systems, for
example De_DE.646. Depending on the file system, these special characters might
include the forward slash (/), the backward slash (\), the colon (:), or the period(.).
When the non-English font is unavailable on the NMC client, the NMC GUI renders the
localized textual elements in English or the elements might appear as illegible.
The CLI displays the data correctly when the current locale supports the characters
and the encoding. However, when the user and system locales do not match on a
Windows host, characters might display incorrectly.
The nsr_render_log command enables you to render English log file messages to
the locale of the user that runs the command. The EMC NetWorker Command Reference
Guide or the UNIX man pages describe how to use the nsr_render_log command.
Message files that support localization include:
l
daemon.raw file—The main NetWorker log file.
l
nsrcpd.raw file—The client push log.
l
gstd.raw file—The NMC server log file.
l
networkr.raw file—The Windows recovery log file.
The EMC NetWorker Administration Guide describes how to view raw log files.
General multi-locale considerations
31
Software Requirements
Windows requirements for multiple locales
Before you install the NetWorker software on a Windows host in a multi-locale
NetWorker datazone, review the following general locale requirements.
l
When non-UTF8 data from a UNIX host uses encoding that Windows does not
support natively, for example, euc-jp, the data from the UNIX host does not
appear correctly in the NMC GUI on the Windows host.
l
The NetWorker User program displays textual elements, dates, times, and
numbers that are based on the Regional and Language Options settings in the
Control Panel.
l
For the French locale and other Latin 1 languages, the NetWorker application uses
code page 1252. If the code page for a Windows terminal session is not 1252, CLI
commands might not work correctly. For example, when a code page mismatch
occurs between the terminal console and the recover command, NetWorker
cannot mark or add some files when using recover command. An error message
similar to the following appears: <filename> not in index. To resolve this
issue, type chcp=1252 at the Windows command prompt, then type the recover
command.
UNIX requirements for multiple locales
Before you use a UNIX host to connect to the NMC server in a multi-locale NetWorker
datazone, review the following information, which describes how to use non-ASCII
installation directories and how to display non-textual elements.
l
NetWorker does not support a non-ASCII installation directory. Create a symbolic
link between the /nsr folder to a non-ASCII directory.
l
To display non-English textual elements, the dates, the times, and the numbers in
the NMC GUI, ensure that you:
n
n
Install the NetWorker language package on the client.
Define the LC_ALL and LANG environment variables from a console window, to
match the installed NetWorker language pack.
For example, on a Solaris host:
– To use the French NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG fr
setenv LC_ALL fr
– To use the Japanese NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG ja
setenv LC_ALL ja
– To use the Simplified Chinese NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG zh
setenv LC_ALL zh
– To use the Korean NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG ko
setenv LC_ALL ko
32
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Software Requirements
TCP/IP requirements
The NetWorker software requires that you install and configure TCP/IP on each host.
Before you install the NetWorker software, ensure that the configuration meets the
following requirements:
l
The /etc/hosts file on each Solaris and Linux NetWorker host must contain an
entry for the IPv4 loopback address. For example, on Linux, the /etc/hosts file
contains the following entries by default:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4
localhost4.localdomain4
Note
NetWorker does not require changes to the hosts file on Windows hosts. It is
recommended that you use the default hosts file settings for the IPv4 loopback
address on Windows hosts.
l
The NetWorker server, when configured as a DHCP client, must use a reserved
address that is synchronized with DNS.
l
The name of the host that the hostname command returns on the system must
matche the name that the IP address resolves to when using the nslookup
command.
l
OS tools, for example, the nslookup command, must resolve the IP address of
the host to the same hostname that you defined for the NIC that NetWorker uses.
l
The hostname must not contain an underscore character (_).
Note
On a Linux NetWorker Server, the NetWorker daemons cannot start when the IP
address 127.0.0.1 is inaccessible on the loopback interface. This requirement is true
even in an IPv6-only environment.
IPv6 protocol
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a next generation Internet protocol that is used
concurrently with IPv4 or in a pure IPv6 environment. IPv6 increases the number of
available IP addresses and adds improvements to routing and network
autoconfiguration.
Consider the following information about IPv6 that is relevant to a NetWorker
datazone:
l
The OS displays IPv6 addresses as eight groups of 16-bit hexadecimal values that
are separated by colons (:).
For example: 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
l
Most newer operating systems configure the IPv6 loopback interface by default.
To determine if the IPv6 loopback interface is configured on the host, use the
ifconfig command on UNIX and the ipconfig command on Windows.
TCP/IP requirements
33
Software Requirements
Note
On UNIX systems, the device name of the loopback interface is usually lo or lo0.
l
NetWorker does not support temporary or link-local IPv6 addresses.
l
The client backup fails when the client IPv6 address is not stored in DNS or in the
hosts file, or when the address is not added to the client resource.
When the operating system configures the IPv6 loopback interface, ensure that
the following requirements are met:
n
The hosts file on each NetWorker host must have an entry that associates the
IPv6 loopback interface (::1) with the localhost. Add the IPv6 loopback
interface entry before the IPv4 loopback entry (127.0.0.1 localhost)
For example:
::1 localhost
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
n
The IPv6 loopback entry must remain in the hosts file when the host is
operating in a pure IPv4, pure IPv6, or dual stack configuration.
NMC client requirements
An NMC client is any host in the datazone in which you use a web browser to connect
to the NMC GUI to manage the NMC server and NetWorker servers.
The following table summarizes the supported Java (JRE) versions and browsers for
each supported NMC client operating system.

client, storage node, and server software.
l
Installing the NMC server describes how to install the NMC server software.
4. The Verify the Installation chapter describes how to test the NetWorker software
functionality.
5. Enable and register the NetWorker products. The EMC NetWorker Licensing Guide
provides information.
Preparing the Linux target host
Before you install the NetWorker software, create a backup of the operating system
configuration file and configure the target host to support NetWorker.
Procedure
1. To create a backup copy of the operating system configuration files, type the
following command:
cp /etc/rpc /etc/rpc.orig
cp /etc/ld.so.conf /etc/ld.so.conf.orig
2. Ensure that the PATH variable for the root and user accounts contains
the /usr/sbin directory.
Linux x64 installation package requirements
The NetWorker installation for all supported x64 Linux operating systems and versions
requires two packages that the default OS installation might not include.
Manually download and install the following Linux OS packages before you install the
NetWorker software. The NetWorker installation fails when these two packages do
not exist on the host:
l
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-68.1.x86_64.rpm or later
l
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-68.1.x86.rpm or later
RHEL 7 and CentOS package requirements
The NetWorker installation requires some packages that the default OS installation
might not include.
Manually download and install the following Linux OS packages. The NetWorker
installation fails when these packages do not exist on the host:
40
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide

l
glibc.i686 0:2.17-55.el7 or later
l
nss-softokn-freebl.i686 0:3.15.4-2.el7 or later
Note
For PowerPC (PPC) hosts, install the 32-bit Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM)
library, pam-1.1.8-12.el7_1.1.ppc or later, on the host. NetWorker requires the
32-bit package, even when the 64-bit PAM package exists on the host.
SuSE package requirements
The NetWorker software has OS package dependencies. The default SuSE installation
does not contain all the operating system packages that the NetWorker software
requires.
When you use the rpm command to install the NetWorker software, the installation
displays a list of missing required OS packages. You must install the required packages
before you install the NetWorker software.
For example, when you run the rpm command to install the NetWorker software on a
default installation, output similar to the following might appear:
rpm -ivh lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libcap.so.1()(64bit) is needed by lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5()(64bit) is needed by lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2)(64bit) is needed by
lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2)(64bit) is needed by
lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.2)(64bit) is needed by
lgtoclnt-9.0-1.x86_64
To resolve this issue, install the following OS packages, and then run the rpm
command again:
l
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-68.1.x86_64.rpm
l
libcap1-1.10-47.1.x86_64.rpm
Default directory locations
Before you install the NetWorker software, you should become aware of the default
directory locations and space requirements for the binary files, the databases, and the
log files on the target host.
Review the following table to ensure that you have sufficient disk space to install the
NetWorker and NetWorker Authentication Service software.
Note
You can change these directory locations on all supported Linux operating systems
except Debian and Ubuntu.

Deploying a VMware template for the host
When the NetWorker daemons start on the host, NetWorker creates resources in the
NSRLA database. NetWorker operations require that the database contain unique
Deploying a VMware template for the host
51
CentOS, OEL, SuSE, RedFlag Asianux, and RHEL Installation
information for each host in a datazone. Before you create a VMware template for
NetWorker hosts, perform the following steps to delete the NSRLA database on the
host that you will use to create the VM template.
Procedure
1. To stop the NetWorker processes, type the following command from a prompt:
/etc/init.d/networker stop
2. To confirm that the NetWorker processes are not running, type the following
command from a prompt:
ps -ef | grep /usr/sbin/nsr
3. Delete the /nsr/res/nsrladb directory.
4. Create the VMware template.
Results
After you deploy the VMware template and start the virtual machine, NetWorker will
generate unique values in the NSRLA resource for the virtual machine.
Post-installation consideration for st tape devices
By default, the Linux kernel configures up to a maximum of 128 st tape devices. As a
result, the inquire command and the Scan for Devices option in the NMC GUI
display a maximum of 128 st devices.
To resolve this issue and increase the maximum number of allowable st devices that
the OS can create:
1. Modify the st module of the Linux kernel.
2. Recompile the kernel.
The EMC NetWorker Administration Guide provides additional information.
The Linux documentation describes how to change the ST_MAX_TAPES definition
and how to perform a kernel reconfiguration, kernel rebuild, and kernel installation.
Installing the NMC server
To manage the NetWorker server, install the NMC server software on one host in the
datazone and complete the following tasks.

Procedure
1. Connect to the NetWorker host as root.
2. If the NetWorker client software exists on the host, from a command prompt,
use the ps command to confirm that the NetWorker Remote Exec daemon,
nsrexecd, appears as a started process. For example:
ps -ef | grep nsr
Output similar to the following appears when the nsrexecd daemon is started
on a NetWorker client:
root 15882 13794 0 16:53 pts/2 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/nsrexecd
If you do not see the nsrexecd daemon, type:
/etc/init.d/networker start
3. Download the NetWorker software package from the EMC Online Support
website to a temporary location.
4. Change to the temporary location that contains the software package, and then

CentOS, OEL, SuSE, RedFlag Asianux, and RHEL Installation
l
To use yum, type the following command:
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck [lgtoclnt*.rpm] lgtonmc*.rpm
where you specify lgtoclnt*.rpm only if you did not previously install the
NetWorker client software.
Note
If yum cannot install missing package dependencies, yum fails and provides a
list of missing packages. Manually install the package dependencies and then
run the yum command again.
l
To use rpm, type the following command:
rpm -ivh [lgtoclnt*.rpm] lgtonmc*.rpm
where you specify lgtoclnt*.rpm only if you did not previously install the
NetWorker client software.
Note
When the OS packages that NetWorker requires are missing, the rpm
command provides a list of missing packages and does not install the
NetWorker software. Manually install missing package dependencies, and
then run the rpm command again.
Configuring the NMC server software
Use the nmc_config command to configure the NMC server software program.
Before you begin
Before you start the NMC configuration script, ensure that the nsrexecd daemon is
running on the NMC host and the NetWorker daemons are running on the NetWorker
Server. Use the /etc/init.d/networker status command to confirm that the
daemons are started. If required, use the /etc/init.d/networker start
command to start the NetWorker daemons. The configuration requires communication
with processes on the NetWorker Server. When the NMC Server is not the
NetWorker Server, ensure that the NMC Server can communicate with the
NetWorker Server.
Procedure
1. Start the configuration script, by typing the following command:
/opt/lgtonmc/bin/nmc_config
2. If the NetWorker services are not started on the NMC Server, the NetWorker
services are not running on this host. Do you want to
start them now? prompt appears. To start the NetWorker services, press
Enter.
3. From the Specify the user for the database server prompt, type
the name of a non-root user that will start the embedded PostgreSQL database
on the NMC Server. To use the default username postgres, press Enter .
4. If the user does not exist, the User username is not a local user,
Do you want to create this user? prompt appears. To create a new
user account, type Y.
The installation creates a new OS user, in disabled mode. NMC uses this user
account to start the Postgres database.

5. To confirm that the nsrexecd process starts, type the following command:
ps -ef | grep nsrexecd
If the nsrexecd daemon does not appear in the output, start the nsrexecd
process by typing the following command : sudo nsrexecd
Deploying a VMware template for the host
When the NetWorker daemons start on the host, NetWorker creates resources in the
NSRLA database. NetWorker operations require that the database contain unique
information for each host in a datazone. Before you create a VMware template for
NetWorker hosts, perform the following steps to delete the NSRLA database on the
host that you will use to create the VM template.
Procedure
1. To stop the NetWorker processes, type the following command from a prompt:
/etc/init.d/networker stop
2. To confirm that the NetWorker processes are not running, type the following
command from a prompt:
ps -ef | grep /usr/sbin/nsr
3. Delete the /nsr/res/nsrladb directory.
4. Create the VMware template.
Results
After you deploy the VMware template and start the virtual machine, NetWorker will
generate unique values in the NSRLA resource for the virtual machine.
Post-installation consideration for st tape devices
By default, the Linux kernel configures up to a maximum of 128 st tape devices. As a
result, the inquire command and the Scan for Devices option in the NMC GUI
display a maximum of 128 st devices.
To resolve this issue and increase the maximum number of allowable st devices that
the OS can create:
1. Modify the st module of the Linux kernel.
2. Recompile the kernel.
The EMC NetWorker Administration Guide provides additional information.
The Linux documentation describes how to change the ST_MAX_TAPES definition
and how to perform a kernel reconfiguration, kernel rebuild, and kernel installation.

Procedure
1. Download the NetWorker software package from the EMC Online Support
website to a temporary location.
2. Change to the temporary location that contains the software package, and then
unzip and extract the files by using the tar command:
tar -xzf file_name.tar.gz
3. Install the missing package dependencies, with the exception of libcap.so.1.
a. To identify missing dependencies, type the yum command with the
localinstall option.
For example:
yum localinstall lgtoclnt*.rpm
Packages skipped because of dependency problems:
compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-68.1.x86_64 from fedora
glibc-2.14.90-24.fc16.9.i686 from updates
ksh-20120801-1.fc16.x86_64 from updates
libXp-1.0.0-16.fc15.x86_64 from fedora
nss-softokn-freebl-3.13.5-1.fc16.i686 from updates
Note
The yum command does not successfully install the NetWorker software.
b. To install the missing package dependencies, type the yum command with
the install option.
For example:
yum install compat-libstdc++-33 ksh libXp glibc-2.14.90-24.fc16.9.i686
When you specify the glib package, use the full package name to ensure the
correct glib package installs and not the glibc-2.14.90-24.fc16.9.x86_64
package.
4. To confirm that you resolved all missing package dependencies, with the
exception of libcap.so.1, type the rpm command.
For example, to determine what pacckages are missing for the NetWorker
Client software, type the following command:
rpm -ivh lgtoclnt*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libcap.so.1 is needed by lgtoclnt-8.1-1.i686
5. To install the NetWorker software and ignore the libcap.so.1 dependency,
type the rpm command with the --nodeps option.
For example,
rpm -ivh --nodeps package [package]...
where package [package]...is a list of the software package that is required for
the installation type.
For example, to install the man pages during a NetWorker client install, type:
Installing the NetWorker client packages

Fedora Client Installation
rpm -ivh --nodeps lgtoclnt*.rpm lgtoman*.rpm
Deploying a VMware template for the host
When the NetWorker daemons start on the host, NetWorker creates resources in the
NSRLA database. NetWorker operations require that the database contain unique
information for each host in a datazone. Before you create a VMware template for
NetWorker hosts, perform the following steps to delete the NSRLA database on the
host that you will use to create the VM template.
Procedure
1. To stop the NetWorker processes, type the following command from a prompt:
/etc/init.d/networker stop
2. To confirm that the NetWorker processes are not running, type the following
command from a prompt:
ps -ef | grep /usr/sbin/nsr
3. Delete the /nsr/res/nsrladb directory.
4. Create the VMware template.
Results
After you deploy the VMware template and start the virtual machine, NetWorker will
generate unique values in the NSRLA resource for the virtual machine.
Post-installation consideration for st tape devices
By default, the Linux kernel configures up to a maximum of 128 st tape devices. As a
result, the inquire command and the Scan for Devices option in the NMC GUI
display a maximum of 128 st devices.
To resolve this issue and increase the maximum number of allowable st devices that
the OS can create:
1. Modify the st module of the Linux kernel.
2. Recompile the kernel.
The EMC NetWorker Administration Guide provides additional information.
The Linux documentation describes how to change the ST_MAX_TAPES definition
and how to perform a kernel reconfiguration, kernel rebuild, and kernel installation.
Uninstalling the NetWorker software
Use the rpm -e package_name command to remove individual NetWorker software
packages or all NetWorker software packages simultaneously. For information about
using rpm, refer to the rpm man page.
Procedure
1. Connect to the NetWorker host with the root account.
2. To view a list of the installed NetWorker packages, type the following
command:
rpm -qa | grep lgto

Uninstalling the NetWorker software by using a silent
uninstall
To perform a silent or unattended uninstall of the NetWorker software, use the same
program that you used to silently install the software.
Procedure
1. From a command prompt, browse to the folder that contains the program file.
For example the NetWorker-9.0.1.0.exe file.
NOTICE
The program files are in networkr, which is a subfolder of the folder where
you extracted the NetWorker installation software.
2. Use the program file command to uninstall the software. For example:
NetWorker-9.0.1.0.exe /uninstall /s /v /q /l filename
where installation_switches include:
l
/s /q suppresses all UI output.
l
/v enables verbose mode.
l
/l filename enables you to specify a location for the main log file. When
you do not include the /l filename option, the installation and
uninstallation processes creates the main log file and all other installation log
files in the C:\users\username\AppData\Local\temp directory.
Monitoring and troubleshooting silent installations and
uninstallations
When you start the NetWorker-9.0.1.0.exe command, one or two
NetWorker-9.0.1.0.exe processes appear in the Windows Task Manager. The

Road map for installing the NetWorker software on AIX
Use this road map to install the NetWorker software on a host that does not have a
previous version of the NetWorker software installed.
1. Software Requirements lists the general requirements and considerations relevant
to each supported Windows and UNIX operating systems.
2. Reviewing the operating system requirements for AIX outlines the software
requirements to consider when installing NetWorker on the AIX operating system.
3. Changing the default directory locations lists the default directory locations.
4. Installing the NetWorker software describes how to install the NetWorker storage
node and client software.
5. Verify the Installation describes how to test the NetWorker software functionality.
Reviewing the operating system requirements for AIX
Before you install the NetWorker software on AIX, review the operating system and
IPv4 considerations.
Packages disk space requirements for AIX
Download the NetWorker software package from the EMC Online Support website to
a temporary location.
Ensure that there is sufficient disk space on the host to contain both the compressed
NetWorker software package and the fully uncompressed files.
The compressed package is 212 MB and the uncompressed size is 642 MB.
AIX 6.1 requirements
On AIX 6.1, system limits or memory management issues can cause core dumps and
performance degradation during NetWorker operations.
To prevent these issues on AIX 6.1 TL04, install the hotfix for AIX APAR IZ65501.
IPv4 requirements
By default the AIX name resolver performs a host look up by both the IPv4 and the
IPv6 addresses.
Review the following information about IP addressing requirements on AIX.
126
l
If either IP address fails to resolve locally, the operating system requests the
address from the DNS Server.
l
If you did not configure IPv6 addressing, then the DNS Server request times out
and return a failure message.
l
If the time out wait time is too long, some NetWorker commands can have a
delayed response and then time out.
To prevent the time out of NetWorker commands, change the default name
resolution lookup behavior to prevent IPv6 look ups. AIX uses three methods to
configure the name resolution mechanism. Ensure that each method does not try
to perform IPv6 look ups:
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
AIX Installation
n
NSORDER environment variable.
From the command prompt, type:
env
If the NSORDER variable is not NSORDER=local,bind4, type:
export NSORDER=local,bind4
n
/etc/irs.conf file.
Ensure that the hosts entries are:
hosts local
hosts dns4
n
/etc/netsvc.conf file.
Ensure that the hosts entry is:
hosts=local, bind4
Changing the default directory locations
You cannot change the installation location of the NetWorker software, but you can
change the location of the configuration, logs, and database files. The AIX installp
utility installs the NetWorker software. This utility does not enable you to change the
installation location of the NetWorker binaries.
The NetWorker software installs the binaries in the /usr/bin directory. If there is
insufficient disk space to install the NetWorker software, the AIX installp utility
allocates more disk space, to complete the software installation. The /nsr directory
contains the NetWorker configuration, logs, and database files.
This table lists the default location and space requirements for the NetWorker
software.

information about supported HP-UX operating systems for each NetWorker
installation type.
l
Ensure that the kernel parameter maxfiles_lim has a minimum value of 8192.
l
Ensure that the /etc/nsswitch.conf file contains an ipnodes policy:
ipnodes=files
Note
If you do not specify an ipnodes policy, the NetWorker daemons fail to start with a
message similar to the following:
lgtolmd: Failed to resolve the IPv6 localhost address ::1. Please
verify an entry for the IPv6 localhost address exists in your /etc/
hosts file and an "ipnodes" policy has been added to your /etc/
nsswitch.conf file.

HP-UX 11iv3 requirements
Before you install the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11iv3, review the following
considerations:
l
If you use stape on an HP-UX11iv3 NetWorker storage node, install patch
PHKL_36312 or later.
This enhances tape device compatibility.
l
For HP-UX NetWorker servers and storage nodes that use tape devices, install
PHKL_41474 or higher.
This is required for CDI support.
l
If you backup the /dev directory to a local HP-UX 11iv3 storage node, then the
backup may fail and the system may fail to respond.
To avoid this issue, implement one of these options:
n
Do not back up the /dev directory.
n
Do not specify ALL in the client Save Set attribute.
n
Do not use a directive to exclude the /dev directory from the backup.
n
Do not specify save sets that include the /dev directory in the backup.
n
Use a remote storage node.
HP-UX 11iv2 requirements
Before you install the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11iv2, perform the following
tasks.
1. install the following patches on the host.
l
PHSS_37500

This section describes how to connect the NMC server and configure the GUI to
manage NetWorker servers.
About the EMC Licensing Solution
The EMC Licensing Solution introduced in NetWorker 9.0.1 is an EMC licensing
standard that stores all the licensing information for the environment in one file (the
license file), which is stored on both the NetWorker server and an EMC License
Server. All new installations of NetWorker 9.0.1 use the EMC Licensing Solution.
The section provides an overview of the various components required for setting up
the EMC Licensing Solution, including:
l
EMC License Server
l
License file
l
Management of the License Server by using LMTOOLS (Windows) or lmgrd
(Linux).
The EMC NetWorker Licensing Guide provides more information about the EMC
License Solution.
EMC License Server
After installing NetWorker 9.0.1, install the Windows or Linux 64-bit License server
package if you do not already have the License Server installed. The License Server is
responsible for managing the EMC licenses and capacity allocation.
NetWorker supports installation of the License Server on the following 64-bit
platforms.
Table 43 Supported License Server platforms
Platform
Versions
Windows
Windows 2008, Windows 2012
Linux
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.x, 11.x
Once you install the License Server, you must obtain the license file from EMC
Licensing. This file contains the host and port information of the License Server. The
License Server is expected to use a default or specific TCP/IP port number. For
NetWorker, this default port is 27000. If a specific (non-default) port is used, it must
match the port number in the license file. You can set the License Server to listen to
an available TCP/IP port, typically in the range of 27000 to 27009.
You can start the License Server by using the LMTOOLS application (on Windows) or
the lmgrd command (on Linux).
Note
EMC does not recommend running the NetWorker Server and the License Server on
the same host. If you do run both on the same host, ensure that you start the
NetWorker server before you start the lmgrd process.
162
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Verify the Installation
License file
The EMC Licensing Solution relies on a license file to indicate the NetWorker features
and capacity you purchased, or options made available for the purposes of evaluating
NetWorker.
When you download the NetWorker software and the EMC License Server software,
you must also obtain a license file from EMC Licensing. This file must reside both on a
platform that runs the License Server, and is accessible to NetWorker. Therefore, you
must store a copy of the file in the License server folder, and in the /nsr/lic
directory on the NetWorker server. When you copy the license file to this directory on
the NetWorker server, you must change the file name to dpa.lic if this is not the file
name already. The license file is an ASCII text file for which the content is encrypted
to prevent tampering or changes.
The license file can contain two types of entitlements -- an update entitlement, if
updating from a previous NetWorker release, and a single capacity entitlement, which
you can share across two datazones if you do not exceed the capacity purchased. All
datazones can point to a single License Server to request capacity.
Management of the EMC License Server
After you install the License Server, a management application is placed on an
accessible server. Complete the setup and configuration of the EMC Licensing
Solution by using the License Server management application appropriate to your
platform.
On Windows, use the LMTOOLS application. On Linux, use the command line utility
lmgrd.
The application should be running constantly to serve licenses to NetWorker. To
accomplish this, the application requires the existence of a running vendor daemon,
EMCLM, which delivers license features to NetWorker and keeps track of counted
features. The application automatically manages EMCLM by starting, restarting, and
stopping the daemon as required. It will also write to the License Server's troubleshoot
log file lmgrd.log to report errors and license feature activity. The lmgrd, EMCLM,
license, and troubleshoot log files are located in the same directory.
Note
Use the EMC License Server Installation and Administration Guide for complete EMC
License Server management instructions.
Quick Start: Activating the EMC Licensing Solution
The following section provides an overview of the steps that are required to activate
the EMC Licensing Solution in a new installation of NetWorker 9.0, as outlined in more
detail in subsequent sections of the EMC NetWorker Licensing Guide and the EMC
License Server Installation and Administration Guide.

installer.msi.
License file
163
Verify the Installation
l
On Linux, the package is
emclicenseserver-3.4.1-2.x86_64_lsb.rpm
3. Obtain the license file from EMC Licensing. For a new installation of NetWorker
9.0, this file contains a capacity entitlement.
You can obtain the file once you provide EMC Licensing with the License Server
host/IP information, the required capacity, and the port to use for
communication between NetWorker and the License Server if you cannot use
the default port 27000. EMC requires this information to create the license file.
4. In the location you installed the License Server:
a. Create a directory.
b. Copy the license file to this directory.
c. Do not rename the license file.
For example, on the License Server, create the following directories:
l
On Windows: C:\Program Files\EMC License Server\elms
\licenses
l
On Linux: /opt/emc/licenses
Note
On Linux, you may be required to complete this step before installing the
License Server package.
5. On the NetWorker server:
a. Copy the license file to the following locations:
l
On Windows: C:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\nsr\lic
l
On Linux: /nsr/lic
b. Rename the file to dpa.lic if this is not already the file name.
6. Complete the configuration of the License Server and then start the License
Server:
l
On Windows, use LMTOOLS or the command line interface.
An icon for LMTOOLS appears on the desktop after the License Server
installation.
l
On Linux, use lmgrd.
7. In the NMC Administration window:
a. Right-click the server.
b. Select Properties.

In the NMC Administration window, when you click Server and then select
Registrations, the right pane displays an entry for CLP Capacity License that
indicates the Authorized -No expiration date.
Configuring the NMC server to manage additional
NetWorker servers
The NMC server can only use one NetWorker Authentication Service to provide
authentication services. When the NMC server manages more than one NetWorker
server, configure a trust between each NetWorker server that the NMC server will
manage and NetWorker server that will provide authentications services to the NMC
server. After you establish each trust, update the user groups on each NetWorker
server to include the users and groups that require access to the NetWorker server.
Procedure
1. To establish the trust, type the following command on each NetWorker server
that is not local to the NetWorker Authentication Service that NMC users for
authentication:
nsrauthtrust -H Authentication_service_host -P
Authentication_service_port_number
where:
l
l
l
The location of the nsrauthtrust command differs on Linux and
Windows:
n
Linux—/usr/sbin
n
Windows—C:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\nsr\bin
Authentication_service_host is the hostname of the NetWorker server that
authenticates the NMC server host.
Authentication_service_port_number is the port number used by the
NetWorker Authentication Service. The default port number is 9090.
2. Use the nsraddadmin command to grant the NetWorker Authentication
Service user groups access to the NetWorker server.
nsraddadmin -H Authentication_service_host -P
Authentication_service_port_number
The nsraddadmin command updates the following user groups:
l
Application Administrator—Adds the distinguished name (DN) of the
NetWorker Authentication Service Administrators group.

165
Verify the Installation
l
Security Administrator—Adds the DN of the NetWorker Authentication
Service Administrators group.
l
Users—Adds the DN of the NetWorker Authentication Service Users group.
3. Optionally, to add other users or groups from the NetWorker Authentication
Service to the Application Administrator and Security Administrator user groups
on the NetWorker server, you must determine the DN for the user or group, and
then use the nsraddadmin command with the -e option to add the user or
group.
For example, to add a user to the Application Administrator and Security
Administrator user groups on the NetWorker server, perform the following
steps:
a. Use the authc_mgmt command with the -e find-all-users option to display a
list of users and the associated user ID in the local user database:
authc_mgmt -u administrator -p password -e find-all-users
The query returns 2 records.
User Id User Name
1000 administrator
1001 Patd
Note
The location of theauthc_mgmt command differs on Linux and Windows:
l
Linux—/opt/emc/authc/bin
l
Windows—C:\Program Files\EMC\Authc\bin
b. Use the authc_mgmt command with the -e find-user option to display user
details for the administrator account, including the user DN:
authc_mgmt -u administrator -p password -e find-user -D userid=user_id
where user_id is the user ID value for the Patd account.
For example:
authc_mgmt -u administrator -p 1.Password -e find-user -D
user-id=1001
User Id : 1001
User Name : Patd
User Domain :
User First Name: Patrick
User Last Name : Dunn
User Email : Patd@local
User Details :
User DN : cn=Patd,cn=Users,dc=buiddnwserver2,dc=IddLab,dc=local
User Enabled : true
User Groups : [100, 101]
c. Use nsraddadmin command to add the user DN of the administrator
account to the Application Administrators and Security Administrators user
group on each remote NetWorker server, that the NMC server manages:

information about how to add additional local database users, LDAP and AD
users to the User Group resources on the NetWorker server.
After you finish
The EMC NetWorker Security Configuration Guide provides detailed information about
how to add additional local database users, LDAP and AD users to the User Group
resources on the NetWorker server.
Starting the NMC server GUI for the first time
The NMC server is a Java web-based application that manages NetWorker server
operations. An NMC client is a host that connects to the NMC server through a
supported web browser, to display the NMC server GUI.
The following sections outline how to prepare the NMC client and how to connect to
the NMC server GUI.
Optional, adding additional NetWorker servers to the NMC server
When you installed the NMC server software on a host that is not also a NetWorker
server, you provided the hostname of the NetWorker server. The NetWorker server
that you specified authenticates user access to the NMC server and the NetWorker
server. To manage additional NetWorker servers, establish a trust between the NMC
server and the additional NetWorker servers. This trust enables users that are
authenticated by the NetWorker Authentication Service on one NetWorker server to
access another NetWorker server. Also, add the required user or group accounts to
NetWorker User Groups to enable user authorization on the NetWorker server.
Procedure
1. Log in to the remote NetWorker server as an administrator on Windows or as
root on UNIX.
2. To establish the trust, type the following command on each NetWorker server
that is not local to the NetWorker Authentication Service that NMC users for
authentication:
nsrauthtrust -H Authentication_service_host -P

Troubleshooting authorization errors and NetWorker server
access issues
This section provides a list of possible causes and resolutions for error messages that
are related to NetWorker server authorization issues.
Insufficient permissions
This message appears when you try to perform NetWorker operations, and the
username that you used to log in to the NMC server is a member of many operating
system groups.
When a user belongs to many groups, the total number of characters in the group
names can exceed the buffer size that NetWorker uses to store the group names.
NetWorker excludes characters and group names that exceed the buffer size.
To resolve this issue, edit the Usergroup resource to which the user belongs, and then
specify the DN for the user in the External Roles field.
Token has expired
This message appears when the NMC GUI is open and the token expires for the
authenticated user.
To resolve this issue:
1. Click OK. The Enter Credentials window appears.
2. On the Enter Credentials window, specify the password of the user, and then
click OK. The NetWorker Authentication Service validates the user credentials and
if the validation succeeds, generates a new token for the session.
Unable to connect to server: Unable to set user privileges based on user token for
SYSTEM: security token has expired
This message appears when the NetWorker Administration window is open and the
token expires for the authenticated user.
To resolve this issue:
1. Click OK. The NetWorker Administration window closes.
2. In the Console GUI, select the NetWorker server, and then select Launch
NetWorker Administration. The Enter Credentials window appears.
3. In the Enter Credentials window, specify the password of the user, and then click
OK. The NetWorker Authentication Service validates the user credentials and if
the validation succeeds, generates a new token for the session.
Unable to query resource database: security token has expired

EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server Connection Issues
Troubleshooting NetWorker daemon or service startup
issues
This section provides a list of possible causes and resolutions for error messages that
are related to issues starting NetWorker processes.
Error spawning NetWorker_Installation_directory\rabbitmqserver-3.2.4\erts-5.10.4\bin\epmd -daemon (error 0)
This error message appears in the daemon.raw file on a Windows NetWorker server
when 8.3 filename support is disabled on the drive that contains the NetWorker
binaries or the 8.3 short name for the NetWorker_installation_directory is absent.
By default, the NetWorker_installation_directory structure contains the EMC
NetWorker directory, which Windows shortens to EMCNET~1. When 8.3 filename
support is disabled on the drive that contains the NetWorker binaries or the 8.3 short
name for the NetWorker_installation_directory is absent, Windows cannot find the
path to the NetWorker binaries, and NetWorker services fail to start.
Use the dir command in the directory that contains the
NetWorker_installation_directory, to determine if the 8.3 short name is absent for the
NetWorker_installation_directory.
For example:
l
The following dir output shows that the EMC NetWorker directory does not
have an 8.3 name:
C:\Program Files>dir /x EMC*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 5C7F-A00F
Directory of C:\Program Files
05/02/2016
NetWorker
l
10:10 AM
<DIR>
EMC
The following dir output shows that the EMC NetWorker directory has the 8.3
name EMCNET~1:
C:\Program Files>dir /x EMC*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 5C7F-A00F
Directory of C:\Program Files
05/02/2016
NetWorker
10:10 AM
<DIR>
EMCNET~1
EMC
To resolve this issue, enable 8.3 filename support, and then set the short name for the
NetWorker_installation_directory:
1. Ensure that all NetWorker services are stopped.
2. From a command prompt, change to the root directory of the drive that contains
the NetWorker installation files.
For example, cd C:\
3. Use the fsutil command to enable 8.3 filename support.
For example: fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 0
Troubleshooting NetWorker daemon or service startup issues
177
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server Connection Issues
4. Use the fsutil command to set the short name of the installation directory to
the actual name of the installation directory. For example to set the EMC
NetWorker directory to the short name EMCNET~1, type: fsutil file
setshortname "EMC NetWorker" EMCNET~1
5. Type the command "NetWorker_installation_dir\nsr\rabbitmqserver-3.2.4\bin\rabbitmq-server.bat" status, and then confirm that the
output does not display the Error spawning message.
6. Start the NetWorker services.
Note
Check each directory name in the path to the NetWorker_installation_directory. If a
directory name is not a valid 8.3 short name, you must set a short name for it.
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker server
connection issues
Review this section for information to help you troubleshoot issues that prevent you
from connecting to the NMC GUI.
An error occurred while validating user credentials. Verify that NetWorker
Authentication Service is running.
This error message appears when the NMC server cannot validate user credentials
with the NetWorker Authentication Service.
This message can occur for more than one reason:
l
The NetWorker Authentication Service daemon did not start on the NetWorker
server that authenticates the NMC server, because another application has
started an Apache Tomcat instance on the same service port.
The following error message also appears in the Catalina log file:
SEVERE: Failed to initialize end point associated with
ProtocolHandler ["ajp-bio-8009"] java.net.BindException:
Address already in use: JVM_Bind <null>:8009
The location of the Catalina log file differs on Windows and Linux:
n
Linux: /nsr/authc/tomcat/logs/catalina.out
n
Windows: C:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\nsr\authc-server
\tomcat\logs\catalina.date.log
To resolve this issue, perform the following steps:
1. Use the netstat command on the NetWorker server to determine which
application is using the same port as the NetWorker Authentication Service:
n
On Linux: netstat -anbo | findstr port_number
n
On Windows: netstat -anp | grep port_number
2. Remove the application that starts the other Apache Tomcat instance or
change the listening port that the application uses.
3. Restart the NetWorker processes on the NetWorker server.
178
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server Connection Issues
Note
The default port number for Apache Tomcat is 8080.
l
The firewall configuration prevents the NMC server from contacting the
NetWorker Authentication Service on the NetWorker server.
To resolve this issue, ensure that the firewall rules allow communication between
the NMC server and NetWorker server on the port that you configured for the
NetWorker Authentication Service. The default port is 9090.
Unable to detect Java Runtime Environment
This error message appears on the NMC landing page when you try to connect to the
NMC server from a web browser.
Also, the Start button does not appear on the landing page, and the following error
message appears:
Attention: 32-bit web browsers require a 32-bit JRE and 64-bit
web browser require a 64-bit JRE.
The following image provides an example of the landing page with the error message.
Figure 4 NMC Landing Page with JRE error message
This message appears when 32-bit JRE is not installed on the machine.

179
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server Connection Issues
To workaround this issue when you have the 64-bit JRE installed on the host, click the
here hyperlink to download the gconsole.jnlp file, and then use the JNLP file to
start the NMC GUI.
To resolve this issue, download the latest update of 32-bit JRE 1.8.
Unable to verify Authentication Server's hostname and/or port
This error message appears when you try to connect to the NMC GUI but the
Windows firewall on the NetWorker server is preventing inbound connections by the
java.exe file.
The following detailed message also appears:
If you were prompted, but did not install the certificate, try again
by
selecting view certificate and installing it under root certification
authority.
If no prompt was made for certificate validation, then verify that the
Networker Authentication service is running on the configured host
and port
Alternately, this error message might appear:
An error occurred while validating user credentials. Verify that
NetWoker Authentication Service is running.
[Failed to connect to NW_SERVER; No error Server Message: Make sure
that server is running.]
To resolve this issue, use the netsh command to create an inbound rule for the
java.exe process on the NetWorker server.
For example:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Java - Allow with
Networker 9" dir=in action=allow program="%PATH\java.exe"
enable=yes
where %PATH is the path to the java.exe file. For example, C:\Program Files
\Java\jre1.8.0_73\bin
Unable to display to Console server web page
If the NMC server web page, for example, http://houston:9000, does not display
on the NMC client, use the following procedure.
Procedure
1. Verify that the gstd, postgres, and httpd processes are started on the
NMC server.
2. Confirm that you specified the correct port number to connect to the NMC
server. The default port number that you use to connect to the NMC server is
9000, but the installation process allows you to specify a different port number.
To determine the service port:
a. Review the NMC configuration file on the NMC server. The location of the
file differs on Windows and Linux:
l
180
Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/etc/gstd.conf
EMC NetWorker 9.0.x Installation Guide
Troubleshooting NMC GUI and NetWorker Server Connection Issues
l
Windows: C:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\Management\GST
\etc\gstd.conf
b. Confirm the port numbers that are defined for the NMC server:
db_svc_port=port_number
http_svc_port=9000
c. Try to connect to the NMC server by using the defined port.
3. Review the gstd.raw file.
If the gstd.raw file reports the following error, then you must check that the
firewall configuration does not block the required ports:
Aborting due to: Connection timed out, then confirm that the
required ports are open on the firewall to enable the console
client to connect to the Console server.
By default, the required ports are:
l
