Stuck creating BMR SRT

Hi All,

I'm stuck creating a shared resource tree for bare metal recovery in NetBackup 7.5(.0.4).

I only have one bundle of files available for installation, but it is asking specifically for the Client install. I didn't see any other files available on the site. The client installation files should be included in this bundle. Is there a certain trick to this that I am not seeing, or did I miss something else?

Thanks!

 

 

The following media is required:
 
    NetBackup Client
 
Please load the media now.
 
Load media from (? for help) [/dev/cdrom] : /root/netbackup/7.5/NetBackup_7.5_LinuxR_x86_64
Mounting media ... mount: warning: /export/srt/Cluster_Headnode/mnt seems to be mounted read-write.
ok.
Incorrect volume has been loaded, please try again.
Unmounting media ... ok.
Load media from (? for help) [/root/netbackup/7.5/NetBackup_7.5_LinuxR_x86_64] :

You have to download (or provide dvd) containing the client files from fileshare.

Currently, these are 3 fairly big files that you download, and then follow the read me for 'merging' into one file.

You then upzip/ untar these into a directory, and point the SRT create script at this.

Note.  If this is a Solaris SRT, you also need to add in the SUNWgzip package.

Hi Martin,

The only file we see is NetBackup_7.5_LinuxR_x86_64.tar.gz on the fileconnect site. I did download one with three files for 7.5.0.4, but pointing to that directory did not work (guessing that's because its just the upgrade).

Thanks

Nick

We found the CLIENTS_tar-gz file and it worked. Thanks!

Pleased I could help.  SRTs can be a bit troublesome to create, but usually the solutioin is fairly simple once you get the hang of it.

Perhaps you would be generous enough to mark a solution.
