Install NetBackup 8.x/9.x on CentOS 8 | RHEL 8 Single Node

Introduction

NetBackup provides high-performance backups and restores for a variety of platforms, including Microsoft Windows, UNIX, and Linux systems. So, in this post you will learn how to install Netbackup.

The collection of clients and media servers managed by a single master is called a NetBackup domain. NetBackup domains can be segregated based on geographic, organizational, performance, or administrative reasons. Sometimes you want to segregate clients into distinct collections for administrative or performance reasons. With NetBackup, you can put each of these separate client groups in its own NetBackup domain. Each domain has its own master and collection of media servers.
