NetBackup client software install for RedHat Linux 2.4
We are currently replacing & upgrading our backup infrastructure running Alexandria (CA) to NetBackup 220.127.116.11.
Our Master Servers are currently Solaris 10 (soon to be Linux 2.6) and most of our client population is HPUX 11i, NetBackup 18.104.22.168 seems to install and work just fine on the majority as we're only using basic NB flat file or raw file backup capability. ie. no fancy stuff like Advanced Client etc.. As we used to have the Master/Media Servers running 6.5.6 before we upgraded them to 22.214.171.124, then 126.96.36.199, we have also managed to install 6.5.6 onto a small number of our legacy Solaris 8 hosts and this also works satisfactorily.
We have however also a few Linux 2.4 hosts. Although I have the distribution files for 6.5.6 which includes the required Linux 2.4 s/w it does not appear to be enough to get these clients installed as it appears to be missing the "move_libs" and ".sizes" files. How can I get my hands on the 6.5 client distribution s/w so that I can build an image to install from... or is there another way around this? We have purchased (7.5) NetBackup client licenses for these hosts but in reality only require 6.5.6.
A "uname" on an example host in question yields the following...
$ uname -a
Linux ThisHost 2.4.9-34 #1 Sat Jun 1 06:32:14 EDT 2002 i686 unknown
NOTE : Due to the legacy critical appplications sitting on both the Solaris 8 and Linux RedHat 2.4 hosts we cannot upgrade them to a later version.
