System Requirements
System Requirements
For more details, see Appendix A of the HP OpenView Storage Data Protector
Media Operations User’s Guide.
Media Operations Server
❑ CPU: minimum 500 MHz Pentium III (HP highly recommends a
dual-processor machine)
❑ RAM: minimum 256 MB
❑ Free disk capacity: 500 MB
❑ A local printer must be configured on the server. The printer does not
need to be physically attached, though you will need one for full product
functionality.
XML Gateway
The XML Gateway is a standalone package that integrates with the backup
manager. The gateway can be installed on one of the following:
❑ The same server as the backup manager
❑ Another Windows client system within the same firewall zone as the
backup manager*
❑ The Media Operations server system. In this case, a dual processor
system is highly recommended for performance reasons.*
*Not applicable for using Veritas NetBackup, when the XML Gateway must be
installed on the NetBackup Master Server.
The XML Gateway will run on Windows NT, Windows 2000, HP-UX, and
Solaris.
It integrates with the following supported backup managers:
■ HP OpenView Omniback 4.1
■ HP OpenView Storage Data Protector 5.x
■ Veritas NetBackup Data Center 4.5
■ Veritas NetBackup Business Server 4.5
Media Operations Manager
The Media Operations Manager, which forms the user interface, is
automatically installed on the Media Operations Server. You can also install it
on supported client systems.
