client install error - red hat release 9

Trying to install to a Red Hat client (red hat release 9 shrike)

The first time I tried to decompress the 7.4 client files, it completed but with errors and generated an install file with 0 bytes. Figured I would try to decompress again and make some sense of any error, and this is what I got:

32-bit OS on Linux Client?

Not supported. Only 64-bit Linux clients are supported. Red hat release 9 shrike is also VERY old. I cannot even tell you when last did any NBU version support this OS.

Please ask system owners to upgrade to supported 64-bit platform and OS.

Please see NBU OS SCL: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76648 

 

PS:
Seems NBU 5.0 was the last version to support this OS.

check if sufficient space is availble on the location where you trying to un-zip and un-tar the binaries.

Or

Seems to be an issue with your binaries, try to get a fresh copy and then try once again.

Marianne,

 

Hello there. I am in a situation where we have some obviously old operating systems with....delicate scripts in production. Updating the OS could very well kill the dependencies and is not encouraged at this stage (although its coming fast)..

My question is, if I have a 7.5 master and a 7.0 master available to me, is there any way to get red hat 9 or fedora core 1 backing up to these masters? 

If not NB, would you point me to an alternative? I know its not the best approach, but just want to put a band-aid over a large, puss filled scar, if that makes sense.

You should be able to NFS mount the filesystems of these unsupported machines on a Unix/Linux client or server that is supported.

Backup these NFS mountpoints with a separate policy with 'Follow NFS' selected. 

The other option is to use OS commands on unsupported machine such as tar or cpio to write backups to a network share on a supported server/client that can be backed up with normal Standard policy.
