Hi

It would be really useful to have a cut down Linux client install for NetBackup 7.x rather than downloading, joining and using the full NetBackup media server installation for the sake of an agent.

This has been easily achieved with the Windows client where you can break out the client install files and offer them on a share for the company to use to install but the same is not available for Linux.

Please can this be introduced to NBU?

Thanks, Mike

It's part of the "Unix" client kit.  Download that; unzip/untar  and ./install

"full NetBackup media server installation"?

Similar to Windows installation where you have to download and join 2 files, unzip, then copy out relevant sub-folder, do the same for the 2 Unix client files - join, unzip, copy out relevant Client OS folder.

CLIENT download files: NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.1of2 and NetBackup_7.1_CLIENTS_tar-gz.2of2.

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

Hi

I am trying to avoid downloading, joining and using the entire NetBackup media server installation.  My original post is for a small Linux client install package be available rather than the full 3GB media server installation package.

Thanks, Mike

You can remove some parts of the dowloaded files, as there is one directory per client type in the 3 GB cleint tar package !

Note : Tools like 7zip allows you to remove files and / or directories inside a "tar" without expending it.

I have not yet tested the resulting "tar" (I built a "client" packages with only Linux), by it seems valid.

EXACTLY GDD!

 

Let us extract the CLIENTS and then browse the sub directories and copy on the OS specific one we need.

 

This is kind of the same as this "idea"
