You can only push install clients from a master of the same OS type.  For example, Windows master can only push to windows clients.

You could share a folder to copy the software, that would be a good solution.

Unix Linux client software cannot be pushed from Windows master.

You can NFS share installation software and install each client locally.

Unix client installation options are listed in chapter 7 of NetBackup Installation Guide for UNIX and Linux http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5154

To install client on unix
1 create a policy with client added to it. disable it.
 
Push binaries from master to client system-
cd /usr/openv/netbackup/bin
2 sudo ./install_client_files sftp master server root1
it will ask root1 password
u will get output [similar to it] ->...   sh /tmp/nb_13452856...  [copy it]  
 
3 login to NBU client system
paste the output u copied press enter 
 
ur all set nbu installation wil start.

Agree with the others - it cannot be pushed from Windows

You are better off doing the installation locally for each of your clients

If you use a shared source directory then always access it via a UNC path, never a mapped drive

My preference is to copy the source files locall and install from there - you can always clean then up once it has completed

Also check all readme notes and late breaking news, especially with some of the unix patches as they need to be un-tar'd correctly to actually work

Hope this helps

I have always had good experience with NFS share for Unix clients with base installation package as well as patches. Just create separate folders for the different components and versions.

Just remember to share with 'root' permissions.

We can do push install but with limitations, limitation as follows 

 

UNIX -> UNIX 

WINDOWS -> WINDOWS 

 

Well if you want to install all the all falvours of UNIX (AIX,HP UX, LINUXR, LINUXS, SOLARIS)

You can install the client package Netbackup version on master server 

Refer :  http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC3647

Unix: 

1. rsh

See “Installing client software with the rsh method” on page 120.

 2. ftp
