Are you sure you are in the dir the files are downloaded to ?

Can you run :

ls NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.1of2

ls NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.2of2

first check that you have rights to read the files and check the size of the files.

ls -l NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar*

second check if the md5 that is given at the download site match the md5 of the files you have

you can create the file from a windows system with the command
copy /b "NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.1of2" + "NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.2of2"  "NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS.tar.gz"

HI Stefanos .


Below is the access rights .


$ ls -l NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz*
-rw-r-----    1 root     system   3312989265 Jun 13 15:07 NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.1of2
-rw-r-----    1 root     system   1446523985 Jun 13 15:09 NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.2of2
For AIX I need to check how can we match the Md5 check sum 
I did run the Copy command from windows and than put the combined binatries into the UNIX server but getting the below error while installing the NBU client .

Please wait while installation is in progress...

Firstly, your prompt "$" looks like a user logon.
You need to be root to install software. This an OS requirement, not NBU.

Secondly - you need to use gtar to extract the tar file.
