This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello All =)

Today im facing a new issue, the thing is, There is a client with NBU installed, however, it doesn't have xinetd/inetd, so, the ports arent opened in the client, this is not allowing communication between master and client.

Is there a way to open ports/run bcpd services without xinetd?

These are the ports im talking about:

tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN      0          13374      4302/xinetd         
tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN      0          1271357183 4302/xinetd        

I'd really appreciate any help. =D

start them maunally, in standalone mode

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/vnetd -standalone
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcd -standalone

Which NBU version?

Which Linux version?

NBU 7.x starts bpcd and vnetd in standalone mode. 

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows

Marianne, it's a very old version of NBU 6.5.X and OS is RHEL 5

then you would need to look for Vnetd in

/usr/openv/bin/vnetd -standalone

and for bpcd

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcd -standalone

6.5 is not supported any longer. Install 7.x :)
