Install 6.5 Client on RedHat but not from Master

Level 3
Hi I have a Redhat 32bit. So i need NB 6.5.6 It is not allowed to push the Software from the master. So i have to send the Admin of the Redhat Server the install files. I download the NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS2.tar.gz and send it to the Admin. He unzip it und run the install. Now he has a lot of Direktories but no netbackup installed. How can he install the CLient? Is there a way to unzip it and only to zip the RedHat part? The Zip would then be smaller. Thanks for your help. Regarts Stivi

unzip it

remove all the zip files for eveything you don't need leaving only the Linux

zip it backup to a new zip file ( so you don't lose your old one)

send it to them

have them unzip

and run the install

they first need to instal the 6.5 then instal the 6.5.6

Hi stivi65 

Have you create a Push policy on Master Server to Installation.

If not create a push poliocy and befre running make sure RSH is enable on client for Installation.

I think it will be helpful.

  If you are on a unix machine and want to re-pack it as a .tar.gz file:

gtar xfz NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS2.tar.gz | NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/NBClients/anb/Clients/usr/openv/netbackup/client/Linux/RedHat2.6/ NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/LICENSE NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/VSM_README NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/install NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/NBClients/catalog/anb/client.inst  

(or, if you don't have gtar:)

gzcat NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS2.tar.gz | tar xf - NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/NBClients/anb/Clients/usr/openv/netbackup/client/Linux/RedHat2.6/ NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/LICENSE NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/VSM_README NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/install NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS/NBClients/catalog/anb/client.inst

then to repack:

gtar cfz NetBackup_6.5_RedHat2.6Client.tar.gz NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS


zip -9 -r NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS

And send that NetBackup_6.5_RedHat2.6Client.tar.gz (or .zip) file to the Admin.  It will take a while to parse through all the files to extract.  Also, the client directory may be different for your distribution (e.g.HP-UX-IA64  HP9000-800  INTEL       Linux       Linux-IA64  MACINTOSH   RS6000      Solaris).  The path I'm going off of is the 7.1, but I don't believe that's changed.  And if you don't see those files in your original tarball, you may need the NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS1.tar.gz or NetBackup_6.5_CLIENTS.tar.gz file.
