At work, we have a storagetek tape backup library and the software we use is HP Data Protector 6.0.
The Data Protector server console is call the cell manager.
To backup a server with the library, I need to install the Disk Agent client on it.
- The Cell Manager need to be already installed and running
- You should be able to resolv the name of the Cell Manager from the Disk Agent client
- If you have a firewall, the port 5555 should be open
For clarity and ease of understanding, I will call ClientServer the server were I want to install the Data Protector Disk Agent client (this is the one that will be backup by the library).
The Data Protector server console server will be call CellManagerSrv.
I succeeded in installing the HP Data Protector Disk Agent client onto my 32 bits Ubuntu 6.06 server, with the following steps.
First things first, open up a console on the ClientServer and let's get into "root" mode:
Type in your password.
The installation programs that come on the installation DVD are in rpm format.
So we need to install the rpm manager with:
We then need to create a directory for rpm :
# aptitude install rpm
then initialize a database for it:
# mkdir -p /var/lib/rpm
Great ! Next, the Disk Agent client will use inetd to listen on port 5555 and start is client.
We have to install inetd with:
# aptitude install netkit-inetd
Insert the DVD named: "HP Data Protector Starter Pack for HP-UX, Solaris and Linux Version 6.0" and mount it:
Let's start that install, shall we ?
# mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
Here are some check points to validate your installation:
# cd /media/cdrom/LOCAL_INSTALL
# ./omnisetup.sh -server CellManagerSrv -install da
the last two lines should read:
# tail /etc/services
# Local services
omni 5555/tcp # DATA-PROTECTOR
You should have:
# grep omni /etc/inetd.conf
You'll need to test if the new program will respond on the 5555 port.
omni stream tcp nowait root /opt/omni/lbin/inet inet -log /var/opt/omni//log/inet.log
Let's try that from the CellManagerSrv with telnet:
If you have a responce, you now may import that new server into your cell manager from the Data Protector console and you're done !
telnet ClientServer 5555
