Barracuda Yosemite Server Backup

Step 2 - Configure the Yosemite Server Backup Domain

  • Last updated on

To configure the backup domain, select Domain Configuration from the File menu. This command displays the Properties of Yosemite Server Backup Domain window for the domain. Select the particular property page you want to configure.

Set the Admin Password

Here is a short video about setting the admin password:

Yosemite Server Backup launches immediately once installation is complete on the master server. While an admin password is not required, it can provide additional data protection by limiting access to the backup domain Administrator.

  1. Launch Yosemite Server Backup Administrator.
  2. Select File > Domain Configuration.
  3. In the navigation bar, click Domain Security.
  4. Select Enable advanced domain security and click OK,
  5. Expand the Advanced link in the navigation bar and click Security.
  6. Right-click the Admin icon and select Change Password.
  7. Leave the Old password field empty and enter a new password in the New password and Verify password fields.
  8. Click OK.

Configure E-mail Settings

Jobs can be configured to automatically email logs to the job owner upon completion. Before Yosemite Server Backup can email logs, the service must be configured to use an email server. To configure Yosemite Server Backup to email job logs

  1. Select File > Domain Configuration.
  2. In the navigation pane, click Email Settings.
  3. In the Server address text box, enter the host name or IP address of the mail server.
  4. In the Server port text box, enter the SMTP port number. The default number is 25. If you are using a proxy server, you may need to enter a different port number.
  5. In the From address text box, enter the email address of the job owner.
  6. Select the job types that you want to send email alerts and notifications.

    Backup jobs Restore jobsCopy jobsVerify jobsDevice commands
    Send logs Send logsSend logsSend logsSend logs
    Send alerts Send alertsSend alertsSend alertsSend alerts
  7. Select the number of minutes to wait before sending alerts.
  8. Select Send in HTML if you want email to be formatted in HTML.
  9. In the Default domain recipients text box, enter the email addresses of recipients to whom you want email alerts sent.

Configure Performance Settings

Performance settings can be configured to optimize resources consumed by Yosemite Server Backup.

OptionDescription
Max number of active hostsControls how many clients can be started for all active backup jobs in the Backup Domain. This option is used to prevent packet loss from occurring if data is transmitted over a network with limited available bandwidth.
Max number of active selection listsControls how many hosts can build their selection list for all active backup jobs in the Backup Domain. This is used to limit use of the database and keep it responsive for active jobs.

Configure Alert Settings

By default, all alerts are logged. You can control the types of alerts that are logged in the operating system's event log by selecting the boxes next to Error, Warning, Information, or License. Barracuda Networks strongly recommend that you log Error and Warning alerts. An Alert button in the lower right corner of the status bar flashes when an alert is generated that requires attention.

TypeDescription
ErrorAn event has prevented a job from completing. For example, if there is no media in a backup device, Yosemite Server Backup generates an alert.
WarningIndicates that a limitation is about to be reached,
InformationProvides non-critical information about system status.
LicenseIndicates that the terms of a license agreement have been exceeded or that a license is about to expire,

Configure Domain Security

Yosemite Server Backup supports rich user, group and permission-based security policies. Contact Technical Support for more information. When Yosemite Server Backup is first installed, these features are disabled. The Administrator will not require a password to log in.

Warning
When security is disabled, anyone using the Administrator can gain access to your data. To prevent unauthorized access, turn on security and set a password for the Admin user.

OptionsDescription
Enable advanced domain securityAllows creation of users, enhancement of passwords, and the ability to set permissions for various objects. When enabled, Administrator displays a login screen at startup. All object property pages include an additional page, Permissions, and the Logon Controls properties of Users and Groups are enabled.
Require password to log in from remote machinesAllows remote login without a password; may allow unauthorized access to data. Disabling this option allows login from Master Server without a password.

Setting a User Password

When security is enabled, a new view, Security, appears under the Advanced link in the Navigation pane. Clicking it displays a list of Users and Groups. The system comes preconfigured with one User, Admin, and one Group, Everyone. To set a password for a user, select the user and click the Change Password command in the command bar. For many users, simply setting a password on the Admin user is sufficient to meet their security needs.

For more details about logon control properties, contact Technical Support.
