Creating an HP-UX SRT

When you create an HP-UX SRT, you are guided through the installation process, as follows:

  • Ignite software

    If the SRT is to be used to restore PA-RISC2-based clients, use Ignite-UX 5.3x or later to create the SRT.

  • Operating system software

  • NetBackup client software

To create an HP-UX SRT

  1. On the boot server where you want to create the SRT, change to the following directory:

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin
  2. Enter the following command:

    ./bmrsrtadm
  3. When you are prompted, select the option to create a new SRT.

    Caution:

    The bmrsrtadm command on AIX and HP-UX prompts you to enter the desired architecture (32/64) while you create BMR SRT.

    If you want to install NetBackup client of the versions older than 7.0 into SRT, this OS architecture type should to be selected as 32-bit. For NetBackup 7.0, select 64-bit as OS architecture type.

    While you install NetBackup client into SRT, bmrsrtadm gives the appropriate error message if there is any incompatibility between SRT OS architecture type and NetBackup client version.

  4. Complete the command prompts as indicated in following table.

    Enter the name of the SRT to create

    The name of the SRT also is used for the directory that contains it.

    Only alphanumeric characters and the underscore (_) character are allowed.

    Enter the description of the new SRT

    A description of the SRT.

    SRT OS level

    The levels you can create based on the operating system version of the boot server.

    Enter desired Architecture(32/64)

    Enter whether 32-bit or 64-bit AIX operating system needs to be installed into SRT.

    Note:

    This SRT operating system architecture type is not related to the client operating system architecture type. Instead, it is related to NetBackup client software going to be installed into SRT.

    In case you want to install NetBackup client of the versions older than 7.0 into SRT, this OS architecture type should to be selected as 32 bit. For NetBackup 7.0, select 64-bit as OS architecture type.

    During the NetBackup client installation into SRT step, bmrsrtadm gives the appropriate error message if there is any incompatibility between SRT OS architecture type and NetBackup client version.

    Enter the directory in which to place the new SRT

    The path to the directory in which to create the SRT. The root of the SRT (called the SRT path) is the path name to the SRT location, which includes the SRT name.

    The default is either /export/srt or the directory where an SRT was last created successfully.

    The directory must exist.

    Location (device or directory path) of the Ignite install media.

    BMR searches for the following directory (x.x is either 11.00 or 11.11):

    • Ignite-UX/FILE-SRV-x.x/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.x.x/ (BOSdatapath)

    If the BOSdatapath directory is found, BMR expects the Ignite installation image to be in one of the following directories. (Note that -PA indicates Ignite version B41.)

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL/opt/ignite/data

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL/opt/ignite/boot

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL-PA/opt/ignite/data

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL-PA/opt/ignite/boot

    If the BOSdatapath directory is not found, BMR looks for a file named INSTCMDS from the tar file supplied in one the following directories: (Note that -PA indicates Ignite version B41.)

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL/opt/ignite/data

    • Ignite-UX/BOOT-KERNEL-PA/opt/ignite/data

    If the file is not found, BMR cannot install Ignite.

    Enter the location (device or directory path) of the HP-UX x.x install media

    The variable x.x is the SRT operating system version.

    The following patches are required for this SRT: patch_list

    They can be found on an HP support plus media, or they can be downloaded from HP Web site.

    Location (device or path) of the media that contains patch_list:

    If your version of Ignite requires a patch, you are prompted to provide the path to the specific patch that the version requires.

    Location (device or path) of the Symantec NetBackup install media

    Enter the name of the device where the NetBackup client software installation media is inserted or enter the path to the installation image.

    After you enter the device name or path, the NetBackup client installation procedure installs the client software into the SRT.

    The following appears when the NetBackup client software installation process begins:

    Installing NetBackup Client Software

    Note:

    To install NetBackup server software, insert the appropriate NetBackup server CD.

    Do you want to continue? [y,n] (y) y

    Enter y.

    Do you want to install the NetBackup client software for this client? [y,n] (y)

    Enter y.

    Enter the name of the NetBackup server:

    Enter any non-blank value. The server name is replaced at restore time with the correct values for the BMR client being restored.

    Would you like to use servername as the configured name of the NetBackup client? [y,n] (y)

    Accept the default or enter any nonblank value. The client name is replaced at restore time with the correct values for the BMR client being restored.

After you install the HP-UX and NetBackup software, the bmrsrtadm command provides options to install other software in the SRT. You can either add other software now or quit (you can add software later).

More information is available about how to add other software.
