What Stephen is suggesting is that he actually installed the server
software onto his XP machine so that the XP machine became a server.

I was a tad un-clear when I said that I "set my XP machine up as a
server". What I meant was that I added, within the Server field on the
Master Server, the entry for my XP box. I did not setup the actual
Netbackup Server services on my XP machine. Since I did that I have not
had any problems accessing the activity monitor or the policies.

Hi guys,


Thanks for getting back to me.


Anthony, I'll try the entries in the bp.conf anf vm.conf file as


The problem I'm been having is referenced in the following link:


The only difference here is that I have a Solaris server acting as the
master server.


I have restarted the daemons on the Netbackup server after I have
the XP client to the server list.


As David Chapa says in the email perhaps it's an XP supportability
but I couldn't seem to find anything.


Any ideas??


We did actually get a response from Stephen who had the original
problem. This is what he had to say:



> There are two options that you can use for accessing the

I will attempt the entries in the bp.conf, vm.conf and will let you
how that goes. I'll also try what Stephen suggests if editing those
files fails.


Thanks for your help.

try adding the ip and netbiosname of the xp box to the solaris hosts
/etc/hosts file, and make sure the bp.conf has the netbiosname in it
server = <name>. and the vm.conf too, but only if there are other
= entries in that file already.  Even if dns entries exist, try this.

Hi there,


I'm looking after a site running NetBackup Business server 4.5 on


The issue that I am having is that I am trying to run the remote
administration console on a Windows XP system.


I have added the XP host to the servers list. I can view everything
except the Activity Monitor, and the Policies.


When I try to connect to the activity monitor I get: "Not connected,
check if services are up" 


There is a post from David Chapa in the archives about 6 months ago as
to the stability of the support of XP and the administrative console
I have checked the site and I come up with


Is XP not a supported option for the remote administration console??


Has anyone come across this??


Is there a patch or fix for this problems??
