Netbackup 6.5.6 BMR Solaris 9 Sun SAN packages

I am running NB 6.5.6 on all servers (master, media, bmr boot server, clients).

I am trying to add the SUN SAN packages to the Solaris 9 SRT. This is needed for SAN attached Solaris 9 servers. The packages are not built in like in Solaris 10.

The software comes in a tar file and when installing it on Solaris 9 - you untar it and then run a ./install_it script that comes with it. That scripts installs all of the packages and patches.

So the directory is:

/bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it

with below in it:

-rwxr-xr-x   1 stevensk sysadmin    3137 Jul 23  2007 install_it
drwxr-xr-x   4 stevensk sysadmin     512 Jul 23  2007 misc

Tried to specify to see if it would run the install_it script - no go :

Enter the package/fileset/patch to be added in SRT or blank to return : install_it
Enter a [hostname:]/pathname containing the install_it package image [/export/home/stevensk/SFS5mp3/dvd1-sol_sparc] : /bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it
[Error] V-125-696 Cannot find valid package at /bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it/install_it.
[Error] V-125-93 Error during installation - package not added.

 

So I thought I had to add them manually - still wont work - the packages are under

mmed02:/bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it/misc/packages/5.9]$ ls -l
total 2172

I tried the following:

Enter the package/fileset/patch to be added in SRT or blank to return : SUNWsan
Enter a [hostname:]/pathname containing the SUNWsan package image [/export/home/stevensk/SFS5mp3/dvd1-sol_sparc] : /bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it/misc/packages/5.9

[Error] V-125-93 Error during installation - package not added.

 

 

Can't find anything about it on the Symantec site or anywhere else - except the following link: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH66461&key=51550&actp=LIST

 

It only says   :

------------------------------------------

The Solaris 9 operating system does not contain pre-installed SAN drivers. SAN packages and patches needs to be installed explicitly in the BMR SRT (Shared Resource Tree) using the /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrsrtadm command.

After installation of required SAN packages and patches in SRT, while installing 119914-12 patch for Emulex (emlxs), bmrsrtadm produces a failure similar to the following

 ------------------------------------------------

Well - I can't even get it to install the required SAN packages and patches into the SRT as it states above that you should be able to do.

 

Anyone know how to add the SAN packages into an existing Solaris 9 SRT?

 

Regards

Ohhh ok. Looks good

Ohhh ok. Looks good then.

Thats fine if you can manage adding the packages manually.

In  case you still want bmrsrtadm to handle this, then please open a SR ticket with Symantec on this case.

Thanks.

Hi Kelly, BMRSRTADM should

Hi Kelly,

BMRSRTADM should have installed the SUN SAN package into SRT.

Looking at below error, I think it failed to find SUNWSan package in your given package folder.

[Error] V-125-696 Cannot find valid package at /bmr-srt/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it/misc/packages/5.9/SUNWsan.
[Error] V-125-93 Error during installation - package not added.

You can give other try where instead of bmrsrtadm, use chroot <srt_dir_path> pkgadd command to try installing the same package.

Still I suspect you will get the same error that bmrsrtadm has thrown. Let me know.

It would be great if you can attach bmrsrtadm debug log 6 for reference.

Thanks.

Hi Mandar   I think bmrsrtadm

Hi Mandar

 

I think bmrsrtadm is using the wrong pkgadd format to add the SUNWsan and other packages for this. It needs the "pkgadd -d $pdir/$pname $pname" format.

When I do it manually, as you suggested, it looks like it will work.

pkgadd -R /nfs-bmr/Sol9_9_05_sun4v_SFS5_0/Solaris_9/Tools/Boot -d /baseadm/SAN_install/SAN_4.4.13_install_it/misc/packages/5.9/SUNWsan SUNWsan

Do you want to install these conflicting files [y,n,?,q]"

 

 

Thanks - I will continue adding all of the SUN SAN foundation packages manually.

 

Thanks Again.
