Configuration Configuring for a multi-interface network connection
In the Clients list for the policy, add a new client.
Specify the Client name as the private interface name, for example, SQLHOST-NB.
Adding permissions that allow for browsing of backups across the private interface
The administrator can allow all clients or allow single clients to browse and restore backups performed over the multi-nic connection.
To allow all clients to browse for backups and perform restores

This option allows any NetBackup client to browse backups made by the SQL Server host machine.
To allow a single client to browse for backups and perform restores

This only allows the SQL Server host machine, SQLHOST, to access backups managed by the master server.
To configure backups of a client in a multi-NIC environment, the private and public interface names must be provided for NetBackup. The private interface name of the SQL Server host machine is specified in the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface on the client. This can be set either during the installation of the NetBackup client, or it can be changed in the NetBackup Client Properties dialog box in the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, as described below.
In the following examples, the NetBackup client machine that backs up SQL Server is referred to as SQLHOST and the private interface used for backing up SQLHOST is referred to as SQLHOST-NB.
