Can someone help me on how to install netbackup client in solaris 10. I was able to push netbackup clients in solaris 8 and 9 but for 10 it keeps on giving error. I already have .rhosts file and rhosts is uncommented already in pam.conf

Haven't done one for a while, but I'm sure I had an issue with this too, unfortunately can't find the docs I wrote up for it.
Sure I ended up having to install the client & patches directly on the Solaris 10 machines.

If you push the netbackup client from the master server to a solaris 10 box it thinks it is solaris 8, so it writes entries to /etc/inetd.conf
Solaris 10 does not have inetd but SMF, so the bpcd port is not activated, you can test by doing a telnet localhost bpcd... it does not answer.
So you have to convert your /etc/inetd.conf file to SMF descriptors, you do so by running
You make sure it is imported by doing
# inetadm | grep -i bpcd
# telnet localhost bpcd
if you get a connection to the bpcd port you're all set and you're ready for backup/restore
