Description

This cookbook is created with the aim of automating the deployment of BackupExec agents.

Requirements

  • RALUS currently only tested on Ubuntu. Ubuntu versions prior to 11.10 are also recommended (likely required) due to incompatibility with the agent itself.
  • RAWS should work properly with Windows 7+ systems (and Windows 2003/xp if the AOFO isn't needed)

Attributes

For RAWS, the node["backupexec"]["rawsx64url"] attribute & node["backupexec"]["raws32url"] attributes should be set to the URL hosting the zipped up RAWS install files

Usage

Recipes:

[backupexec::ralus]

  • Add necessary firewall exceptions (i.e. incoming TCP port 10000)
  • Apply the recipe to the node
