NetBackup_7.5_LinuxR is for Redhat Master or media servers.

You need to download the 3 NetBackup Client installation files and join and extract them as per the README that can also be found on FileConnect.


# cat NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS_tar-gz.1of3 NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS_tar-gz.2of3 NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS_tar-gz.3of3 > NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS.tar.gz

# tar xzf NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS.tar.gz
