I am getting error when I try to install netbackup solaris client from GUI.

connection refused.

I have added the client entry in /etc/hosts file of master server and added master server entry in .rhosts file of client.

I am attaching bptestbpcd command output from master server which failed with 25 error

.rhost is deprecated. You should use scp/sftp instead.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/install_client_files ssh client_name server_name

To install a client from the GUI you need rsh access to the client for root on the master server.

Unix client push install is covered in NetBackup Installation Guide  (as well as other installation methods).

bptestbpcd will fail if the client does not already have NetBackup installed, if that's the case, ignore that and check the scp/sftp worls as per Nicolai's advice.

yes, I added the master server entry in .rhosts foile which enables rsh login

.rhost is normally disabled because it considered insecure. Adding to .rhosts file alone will not enable the underlying service if disabled.

Reading between the lines ... you dont want to allow root access direct, I'm thus assuming this is blocked by your sysads. Start with scp method with a valid account and then see where it takes you, or install direct from iso/install media.

As per my previous post:

Unix client push install is covered in NetBackup Installation Guide  (as well as other installation methods).

Other options covered in the manual are ssh, ftp and sftp.
Solaris online documentation will tell you how to enable rsh.

The GUI will try rsh.
'Other installation methods' need command line.
See '
About remote installation methods for UNIX/Linux clients' in Installation Guide.
