Netbackup RHEL Client 7.6 kickstart install

HI,

I'm wanting to install the NB 7.6 client via a kickstart script for when I roll out servers. I can install these manually but the client install asks questions that need to be answered. Is it possible ti include like an "answer" file with the install. Not sure im going the correct direction here for a silent install.

Thanks

  • Please review the Install Guide, here is a quote:

    "To install or upgrade the Linux client binaries using standard RPM tools:
    1 Please create the NetBackup installation answer file (NBInstallAnswer.conf)
    in the client /tmp directory.
    2 Populate NBInstallAnswer.conf with the following information:
    SERVER=master_server_name
    CLIENT_NAME=client_name
    Example:
    SERVER=master_01
    CLIENT_NAME=client_101
    Additionally, you can add either of the following options to the
    NBInstallAnswer.conf file:(...)"
