    The CORE itself is fine, the client installs successfully and gets imported into the cell. However, I'm not able to browse the filesystems and if I start a backup, I get the well-known error
    Code:
    "All mountpoints on host "x.y.z" are excluded."
    The culprit seems to be either the DA, or the connection between Agents and the inet in general. Any ideas where to check...?

    HP forum support is a big fail.
    It seems that the problem is the Disk Agent. I have been trying to get it to work for hours. I have tried with 6.0 and 6.11 clients. I've got no hair left

    Re: How-to install HP Data Protector on Ubuntu 6.06 and 7.04

    Question: on 9.10 when trying to do the push install I am having a problem with the rpm. The --force-debian option. Why we would do something to break an installation tool is beyond me but how did you accomplish the push installation on your 9.10 servers without rpm.

    Or have I missed something else..


    I appreciate your help in this. On all previous version never had a problem just install rpm and xinetd and all worked fine. I use the ssh install options for linux host and never had a problem untill they broke rpm.

    Thank you...

    I solved that rpm problem with a shell wrapper that adds the command before. That was a requirement to get the remote push working.

    However, the DA doesn't work here. I'm not deep enough into the topic yet to know how to debug that.

    Through the inet.log specified in the inetd.conf I get this line, if I try to browse with the DA:
    Code:
    Mon Feb 22 09:34:39 2010 [MY_NTUSERID.DOMAIN@cellmanager.com] : BDF
    BDF?

    Re: How-to install HP Data Protector on Ubuntu 6.06 and 7.04

    I'm a step further. BDF is a command that the cell manager issues to INET. It basically means "Browse Disk Filesystems" and looks for Mountpoints on the client.

    This command fails for us.

    You can invoke it on the cell manager:
    Code:
    Omniback/bin/omnirsh <hostname> BDF
    On other clients, that should return the list of filesystems (as paths).

    I found that on our linux system, the inet calls a hidden script to give the answer to that call. For me it is in /opt/omni/lbin and is called .util

    In the header, you can remove 2 #'s to activate debugging, it creates a /tmp/
    UTIL_<hostname>_<pid>_OB2DEBUG which, at the end, executes the following command to give results:
    Code:
    /bin/df -P -t psfs -t ext2 -t SFS -t ext -t minix -t xiafs -t vmfs -t reiserfs -t ext3 -t vfat -t vxfs -t+ fs -t hsmfs -t gfs -t lustre_lite -t 1ds -t ocfs2 | awk {print $6}
    As you can see, the script fails to recognize ext4 as a filesystem.

    If you now change the following
    line in .util:

    Code:
        gpl/i386/linux)
           /bin/df -P -t psfs -t ext2 -t SFS -t ext -t minix -t xiafs -t vmfs -t reiserfs -t ext4 -t ext3 -t vfat -t vxfs -t xfs -t hsmfs -t gfs -t lustre_lite -t ocfs   -t ocfs2 2>/dev/null | sed '1d' | awk '{print $6}'
           ;;
    (see the added -t ext4 there)

    .. the browsing of the filesystem works. I need to make sure that the backup of ext4 filesystems work in general, but it looks fine so far.

    Have fun.

    Re: How-to install HP Data Protector on Ubuntu 6.06 and 7.04

    Dear Team ,

    while installing HP Data protector 6 on ubuntu 9.10 facing below problem ...

    root@delft:/tmp/hp/rahul/LOCAL_INSTALL# sh omnisetup.sh

    The omnisetup.sh script didn't finish last time
    Client still has to be installed. (omnicf da)

    The omnisetup.sh script can now continue the unfinished installation
    or it can ignore the saved state and start a new one.
    If you choose to ignore, the script will erase the saved state
    and will process only the command line options
    Do you want to continue the unfinished installation? (Y/n)
    n
    Ignoring saved state...

    No Data Protector/OmniBack software detected on the target system.

    Install (cc) User Interface (yes/NO/Quit)?
    NO
    Install (da) Disk Agent (YES/no/Quit)?
    YES
    Install (ma) Media Agent (YES/no/Quit)?
    YES
    Install (sap) SAP R/3 Integration (yes/NO/Quit)?
    NO
    Install (sapdb) SAP DB Integration (yes/NO/Quit)?
    NO
    Install (oracle8) Oracle Integration (yes/NO/Quit)?
    NO
    Install (db2) IBM DB2 Integration (yes/NO/Quit)?
    NO
    Setup cannot continue, please insert the HP-UX installation CD (CD2)
    and run the installation script again, without options, it will continue.



    Help in this regards will be highly appreciated.

    I already follow your step for installing the DP agent and all ok.
    But the server not responding on port 5555.
    I suppose that the agent don't start .
    Why ?

    Thank you
