    8. Console Server Windows 2000/2003 32-bit Solaris 7, 8, 9 & 10 Linux RedHat Advanced Svr 2.1, Enterprise Svr 3 and 4 SuSE Enterprise Svr 8 and 9 NetWorker 7.3 client must be installed on Console server JRE 1.4.2 (w/ WebStart) Optional: LLM 7.0 or later NetWorker versions supported by Console NetWorker 7.0 (and above) on Linux, UNIX and Windows Console Client AIX Mozilla 1.8 Netscape 4.7.2 HP/UX Mozilla 1.6 Linux Mozilla 1.4 Solaris 8 & 9 Netscape 6.2.3 Solaris 10 Mozilla 1.7 Windows2003 Enterprise or Datacenter Edition IE 6.x Windows XP, 2000, or 2003 (32-bit) IE 5.5 or 6.x Netscape 4.7.6 or 7.x System Requirements

    9. Console Client • Is a Web-deployed Java Application • Delivered to the Client by Java Web Start • Ensures latest version is downloaded from Console server • Then behaves as a regular desktop application • Can be Launched from: • The desktop • Java Web Start Application Manager • Web browser, but not needed to run

    10. Installation Information • Package locations • /usr/src/ARCHIVE/nw/7.3 (Unix path) • \\archive\archive\nw\7.3 (Windows path) • Package Names (the standard NW pkgs) • nw_win_x86.exe • nw_solaris_64.tar.gz • nw_linux_x86_64.tar.gz • Default Install locations • C:\Program Files\Legato\Management\GST (Windows) • /opt/LGTOnmc (Solaris) • /opt/lgtonmc (Linux) • Note on Size • The Windows package is a combination of core NetWorker & NetWorker Management Console and requires severalhundred MB of free disk space

    11. Select to have NMC installed LLM is optional Windows Installation of NMC

    12. Windows Installation of NMC Once the install of NetWorker is complete, the NetWorker Management Console install will begin (as shown in the next slide)

    13. Windows Installation of NMC Begin installation of NetWorker Management Console

    14. Windows Installation of NMC Note space requirements for NMC installation

    15. Windows Installation of NMC • The database can be installed in a different location from the server binaries • 9000 and 9001 are the default port numbers for clients to connect to the Console server

    16. Windows Installation of NMC • Like NetWorker, you can keep or overwrite an existing “database” • Upgrade steps involve “uninstalling” (and keeping the database), then reinstalling the new version of software

    17. Remember Console server location. You must list the server name and the port number (i.e . 9000) You can launch directly after install completes Windows Installation of NMC

    18. NMC Product Directories

    19. Setup of NMC Client on Unix The browser runs a javascript routine to detect the required version of Java Web Start. If not available, the following info is displayed. There is some variation among the different platforms. • Download the JRE from the Console server • CD to dir and Run the self-extracting binary Sometimes the JRE is detected, but there is a problem with the way the browser associates the jnlp app with its handler -- the following instructions are then available. • Add this line to the .mime.types file type=application/x-java-jnlp-file desc="Java Web Start" exts="jnlp“ • Add this line to the .mailcap file application/x-java-jnlp-file; /usr/local/j2re1.4.2/javaws/javaws %s

    20. Additional Install Considerations • Linux • Use rpm to install the lgtonmc package • Users must run the “” script once installation is complete. The script is found in the /opt/lgtonmc/etc dir (by default). This is required because the Linux install is not interactive. • Solaris • Use pkgadd is used to install the LGTOnmc package • nsraddadmin • This must be run on any NetWorker server that does not have a local Console server • The syntax is: nsraddadmin –u <user>@<host>

    21. Console Migration • Migrating from 2.0.1 to Keystone is not supported. (If customers have this environment, they are to upgrade to 3.0, then install the Keystone version of Console) • Workflow is to “uninstall” Console and leave the database. Install the new version and select the “keep the database” option • No upgrade enabler is required for Console from 3.1 to the Keystone version • Customers who have a licensed version of Console 3.1 do not need to enter the new “advanced” report license

    22. Intermission

    23. Current Product Features • Centralized Enterprise Hierarchy • Logical map of NetWorker servers • Centralized Managed Events • View & sort NetWorker error messages - by priority, server, … • Annotations & Notes can be added to events • Centralized Reporting • Consolidated status for all NetWorker savegrps • Centralized Administration • Provides cross-platform consistency

    24. Current Product Features (cont) • Logging NetWorker user activities (aka auditing) • Console client respects locale settings for date and time • International character set support • Interface for managing Legato License Manager and bulk licenses • Console access control: restricting user “views” to NetWorker servers

    25. Expand console platforms Console Server Linux Console Client Linux, AIX, HP-UX I18N Conversion New Drive Utilization Report OEM Re-branding New “look” (icons & layout) User preferences Improved “column” management Integrate with NetWorker Install Monitor Retrospect servers Initial configuration wizard for NMC Launch NetWorker saveset configuration wizard Incremental backups (new “module” for ASA) Reduce (eliminate) LLM Dependency Support concurrent tape library operations* Device Configuration GUI* Manual Cloning* Save set Query of Media DB* Improved monitoring* Launch NetWorker client applications* New Keystone Features/Enhancements in NMC *new admin feature

    26. Console Client – Splash Screen & Login Dialog

    27. EULA Prompt • New for Keystone • First time a user connects to Console, the EULA is displayed • The acknowledgement is stored in the Console database. It can be reset in a future version of Console to have it displayed again • Legal has stated that as long as someone, somewhere in an enterprise has accepted the EULA, it is binding

    28. Administrator can “hide” this help in future Getting Started Page

    29. Task Bar Menu Bar Tool Bar Elements of Console Windows Details Pane NavigationPane

    30. Elements of Console Windows • Task Bar • Separate tasks user performs. Drives how the rest of screen drawn. • Menu Bar • Changes depending upon task. A “task specific” menu item will appear. This menu item can be accessed via a right-mouse click. • Tool Bar • Task specific. Some actions will behave differently depending upon the object selected in the navigation or details pane. • Navigation Pane • Classic “tree view” organization. Not all task areas have a navigation pane. • Details Pane • Where details, results or messages are displayed. Generally, the details pane consists of a table.

    31. Groups Arch Reqs Devices Alerts Sessions Log Server, group & client resources Library and Device Config/Ops Navigation between Console and Admin ConsoleWindow NW AdminWindow Label TapesPoolsVolumesIndexesSaveset Query

    32. Standard Console features

    33. Standard Console features (cont) • “Default” table columns are the ones predefined by Console (however, there is, currently, no way to “reset” back to the default set of columns) • All table columns can be sorted, reordered and resized • User preferences are saved in the Console database (therefore, they “follow” the user, not the machine) • Preferences are different for Console and Admin sessions • Online Help is screen “context” sensitive (new for Keystone) • All help content is single-sourced, i.e. printed docs and online help are the same (new for Keystone)

    34. Setup Task • Task renamed for Keystone. Use to be “Software Administration” in Console 3.1 • Allows administrator to manage user accounts • Provides access to the EMC Legato License Manager • System Options • Configuration Wizard

    35. Setup Task: User Management

    44. Libraries Task

    45. Libraries Task

    46. Reports Task • Creates and displays reports based on data collected from managed hosts • Basic and advanced reports (New for Keystone) • Users who upgrade from 3.1 do not need to enter the advanced report enabler • Reports can be saved for scheduling outside Console, shared with other users, printed, exported into various formats, or displayed as charts (most reports).
