data protector 6.11 and redhat 6

Hi!

Anyone tried on installing the hp data protector client on redhat 6 (in my case the x64_86 version) sucessfully? What was the procedure to successfully install, because the standard ./omnisetup.sh -install da does not work (at least for me).

Thank you.

Hi Andrej,

Did you try with HPUX DVD?

Check if this OS is supported, looks like it is, but has a note, check it.

Hi!

Yes I am using the HPUX dvd. Is it possible that my dvd is old and RHEL 6.x is still not supported? Any way to download a new version of the dvd?

Thank you.

-First of all please check that the xinetd package is installed and running on the linux box (if xinetd is not running the installation could fails):

# rpm -qa | grep -i xinet

Also check:
-From cell manager #telnet linux_machine 5555
-Check if firewall is stop:

Re: data protector 6.11 and redhat 6

Problem solved. Looks like on redhat the install procedure does not create all the files.

I had to manualy create the /var/opt/omni and /etc/opt/omni files and directories.

Then I restarted xinetd and everything started to work. Client imported and backup working.

Thank you for the help.

Re: data protector 6.11 and redhat 6

Hi,
The main problem comes from /etc/services file. There is already an entry for port 5555 in Red Hat 6. For this reason OB2-CORE rpm installation script fails with this message:
"ERROR: Data Protector socket number 5555 is already occupied". You couldn't see this error mesage because omnisetup.sh suppresses RPM installation output.

REAL SOLUTION:
Open /ect/services file and place "#" before these lines:
personal-agent 5555/tcp # Personal Agent
personal-agent 5555/udp # Personal Agent

After that re-install Data Protector as usual.

Re: data protector 6.11 and redhat 6

Data protector agent doesn't send ext4 partitions list to Cell Manager. You can solve this with editing /opt/omni/lbin/.util file.

You have to add "-t ext" attribute to /bin/df command (in my config it is line 351), which lists your mount points.

If you don't want to do this manually you can use this command.
sed 's/-t\ psfs\ -t\ ext2/-t\ psfs\ -t ext4\ -t\ ext2/' -i /opt/omni/lbin/.util

NOT: Whenever you upgrade your agent this file may be overridden. So you should do this action again or HP will solve ;)

Re: data protector 6.11 and redhat 6

Sorry there is a mistype in my answer.

You should add "-t ext4" attribute to /bin/df line. I forgot to write letter 4.
