Agent Install Linux

I was able to successfully install the Linux 7.5 Agent on a Client with no issues.

I have downloaded the patch and attempting to untar the file and install it but not working.

I ran the MD5 utility and the values match onf the 3 files as well as the 1 file which was combined.

Using the following command: tar -xf NB_CLT_7.5.0.4.tar

Error: stdin:not in gzip format

tar: Child returned status 1

tar: Error delayed from previous errors

I understand it is not in gzip format but when combining the 1 split file is says to create a .tar file

     tar xf NB_CLT_7.5.0.4.tar


    Hi Tim,
    I would suggest you to try upgrade  the client upgrade from  master server.
    Using command listed below,
    1) /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpplclients | grep server_name > /tmp/client_list
    2) /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients -ForceInstall -ClientList  /tmp/client_list  (for netbackup client up-grade)
    Below are command to upgrade Netbackup DB Agent, 
    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_dbclients -ForceInstall Oracle -ClientList /tmp/client_list (for netbackup Oracle DB agent up-grade)
    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_dbclients -ForceInstall SAP -ClientList /tmp/client_list  (for netbackup SAP  DB agent up-grade)
    This may help you for up-grade.
    Note : Master server must be Linux/Unix to up-grade Linux client.

    Plz let us know if any query you have.

  • Which Linux is it, specifically?

    Which tar are you using?  (output from `which tar`)

    I like Yasuhisa's idea of including the explicit path to tar in your command, but you may find you need another one - we have a GNU tar distribution attached to this TechNote:

    If tar is used to unpack downloaded NetBackup 7.1 or 7.5 distribution files, installation or upgrade may fail.

    Good luck!
