EVA3000 SAN Appliance question

Group,
hey - we have a SAN appliance (proliant running windows 2000) that I'm thinking of trying to install a netbackup client on. Has anyone done something like this?

thanks,

Charlie

Hello,

All SMA-II and SMA-III are supported for re-imaging with Windows 2000/2003, and it's supported to install any backup client you like.

Re: EVA3000 SAN Appliance question

There was a document used to describe which backup products where qualified with the stripped Windows 2000 version.

As support for the box has ended and no patches are produced I, too, suggest to check if you can put a plain Windows 2003 on the box.

Before you do that it is necessary to find out which functions of the SMA are really used/needed, e.g. the old "HSG element manager", a very old version of the "HSV element manager"/"Command View EVA" which cannot be installed on a plain Windows, the old BC framework, or products like Network View or "Storage Allocation Reporter".
