    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

NetWorker Resource Relationships

Posted by Preston on 2009-10-07

With NetWorker having many components that can link together in a variety of ways, it’s not always easy (particularly for new-comers) to have a mental map of how all those components interact. Having made repeated stabs over the years to come up with a coherent diagram showing those relationships, I have a frustrated understanding of the difficulty of drawing the relationships.

Lately I decided to take a slightly different approach – to reduce the level of the diagram to the bare basic components so as to try to give a big overview rather than every possible detail. It’s highly likely I’ve left stuff off, and my diagramming skills aren’t the best – but hopefully if you’re not sure of how everything fits together in NetWorker it may help to improve your mental map of it.

NetWorker Resource Relationships

For the most part, I’ve tried to stick to components that are defined resource types within NetWorker. A couple of notable exceptions are “Volume” and “Level” … neither of these are defined resources as per the NetWorker resource database, but knowing where they appear in usage helps to fill in a few gaps that would otherwise be confusing.
