HOW TO Install HP Data Protector 5.5 on Linux

Contents
This manual describes the install of HP Data Protector 5.5 Core component, Disk Agent and Media Agent on a Linux server. In this manual the backup server is backupserver.demo.local and the linux server is linuxserver.demo.local

Background
The HP Data Protector 5.5 suite does not contain a simple installation for Linux Agents, therefore this manual is necessary.
This manual uses:
-          hp OpenView Storage Data Protector 5.5 for HP-UX 11.23 IA-64 cdrom
-          Enterprise Linux / CentOS installation on server (linuxserver.demo.local)
-          ncompress-4.2.4-41.rhel4.x86_64.rpm
-          putty and winscp
Please check these components before continuing installation.

Install
  1. Use winscp in binary mode to copy DP_A0550_UXia64_IS.sd_depot from the cdrom to /var/tmp on the linux server
  2. Connect to the linux server with putty.
  3. Logon with root credentials
  4. type vi /etc/hosts
    • add 10.10.10.10 backupserver.demo.local to the hosts file
  5. type cd /var/tmp
    • go to dir where depot file remains
  6. type tar -xvf DP_A0550_UXia64_IS.sd_depot
    • extract the depot file
  7. type mkdir /tmp/omni_tmp
    • create a temporary installation location
  8. type cd /tmp/omni_tmp
    • go there
  9. type tar -xvf /var/tmp/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-CORE-IS/opt/omni/databases/utils/gpl/i386/linux-60/utils.tar omni_rinst.sh
·         extract the omni installer from utils to the temp install location
  1. type cp /var/tmp/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-CORE-IS/opt/omni/databases/vendor/omnicf/gpl/i386/linux-60/A.05.50/packet.Z /tmp/omni_tmp
    • copy the core component to the temp install location
  2. type ./omni_rinst.sh /tmp/omni_tmp/packet.Z co a.05.50 gpl/i386/linux-60 /usr/omni backupserver.demo.local
    • install the core component
    • the packet.Z file is removed after installation
    • you’ll get an error message like ‘Warning: Update of the omni_info file failed for co! Omniback II software package successfully installed !’ but that’s ok.
  3. type cp /var/tmp/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-OTHUX-P/opt/omni/databases/vendor/da/gpl/i386/linux-60/A.05.50/packet.Z /tmp/omni_tmp
    • copy the disk agent component to the temp installation location
  4. type ./omni_rinst.sh /tmp/omni_tmp/packet.Z da a.05.50 gpl/i386/linux-60 /usr/omni backupserver.demo.local
    • install the disk agent component
  5. type cp /var/tmp/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-OTHUX-P/opt/omni/databases/vendor/ma/gpl/i386/linux-60/A.05.50/packet.Z /tmp/omni_tmp
    • copy the media agent component to the temp install location
  6. type ./omni_rinst.sh /tmp/omni_tmp/packet.Z ma a.05.50 gpl/i386/linux-60 /usr/omni backupserver.demo.local
    • install the media agent component
  7. type vi /etc/services
    • go to the bottom of the file add the portnumber 5555 to the omni service like omni  5555/tcp     # DATA-PROTECTOR
  8. type service xinetd restart
    • restart xinetd so that omni will start
  9. Add client to the HP Data Protector Storage Manager by doing a import client…
