Data Protector 8.1 Linux: How to start GUI?

Hi,

 

  I've just upgraded my DP 7 to 8.1, I can't find "xomni".

How can I start the GUI?

Jason,

 

There is no xomni anynmore.  You have to install a Windows client and use that.

 

Further to this, you may have some firewall issues - come back to me here if you do and I will point you in the right direction.

 

Are you on Redhat or SUSE?

 

Regards

Mark

If you are trying to run the Java GUI from your Linux cell manager, the 'xomni' command no longer exists, because support for the Java GUI has gone away.  You will need to use the Windows GUI

 

The system running the Windows GUI should be in the same domain as your cell manager, if not, you would need to create some firewall rules, and set a range of ports in the 'omnirc' file, but, lets jump off that bridge if we come to it

RHEL 5.5, no firewall problem, just don't expect HP dropped the xomni GUI

How will administrators create Linux ISO files for EADR if the Java GUI has been removed?

In the Disaster Recovery Guide for DP 8.1,

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM00702188?searchIdentifier=6deae444%3a1468fa140fa...=

 

on pp 117-119, the procedure for creating an ISO file seems to be identical to create one for the Windows system, and can be done from the Windows GUI

For Linux you can also use the omniiso command.
