we have updated our Test server to 8.1.2 (Linux) and i try to do some tests.
As described in the Installation Docu we don't install the JAVA part if we install a client. (We have renamed the file)
How is this working with the VXupdate? I think it will not use the standard client software location (/usr/openv/netbackup/client or?
is there a possibility to NOT install JAVA on a client with VXupdate?
Unfortunately, as far as I know, what you are asking for (not install java during client upgrade thru vxupdate) is currently not supported.
you should also note that vxupdate does not use the client package located in /usr/openv/netbackup/client. Vxupdate client upgrade package are stored in /usr/openv/netbackup/var/idonotrememebertherestofthepath
I suggest that you open a case and ask for an enhancement request thru your veritas local rep.
