We use a Windows based Netbackup Master and most of the machines we bck up are Windows based. However, we do have a few Linux based machines that we need to back up. These are all SuSE 11 SP2 machines, and are running on Intel based x86 hardware using the 64bit version of SuSE.
I don't have enough machines to merit any sort of remote install solution as we do have local access to them all.
I have attempted two things:
1) I downloaded the three part set of the Server/Client of Unix/Linux installation disks. Combined them using copy /b method, uncompressed them to a folder and copied them to the linux server. Run the ./install command from the second level directory creted, and .... nothing ....
2) So, I downloaded just the LinuxS client disk for Suse and followed the same routing after deleting the data from attempt 1 completely. I ran /.install on it and it came up and asked me if I wantted to install, I gave it a Y, and then I get the following:
0 No padv object defined for padv SLES12x8664 for system dmc-splunkidx1
The NetBackup and Media Manager software is built for use on LINUX_SUSE_X86 hardware.
Do you want to install NetBackup and Media Manager files? [y,n] (y)
If I choose "N" (simply because I am not sure what it is asking, I get the following note:
File /tmp/install_trace.14511 contains a trace of this install.
That file can be deleted after you are sure the install was successful
So now what????
If I answer "Y" to the second question, it states:
NetBackup and Media Manager are normally installed in /usr/openv.
There are 3724244 kbytes of space left in /usr/openv.
You will need about 4758862 kbytes of space to install NetBackup and Media Manager.
You must install in /BASEDIR/openv.
Specify BASEDIR in /BASEDIR/openv or q to quit:
This machine has oodles of space on it so I not sure about the warning here.
And..... as you guessed it, I am a totlal Linux Novice, but trying to learn.
Can someone help me get ths client installed?
I appreciate your help!
