Step 1:

Install rsh-Server (rexec)

Step 2:

Install Telnet Server

Step 3:

On the Linux client machine, insert the Omniback CD (HP OpenView Storage Data Protector 5.5 for HP-UX 11.23 IA-64 installation server) and mount it.

Open a Root Console:

Then create the following directories:

# mkdir /usr/omni
# mkdir /tmp/omni_tmp

Step 4:

Get omni_rinst.sh from the utils.tar file and place it in /tmp/omni_tmp

Path: media/cdrom/DP_DEPOT/DP_A0550_UXia64_IS.sd_depot/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-CORE-IS/opt/omni/databases/utils/gpl/i386/linux-60/utils.tar





Step 5:

Copy the CORE packet.Z file to the /tmp/omni_tmp directory

PATH: /media/cdrom/DP_DEPOT/DP_A0550_UXia64_IS.sd_depot/ DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-CORE-IS/opt/omni/databases/vendor/omnicf/gpl/i386 /linux-60/A.05.50/packet.Z



Step 6:

In the /tmp/omni_tmp directory run the following command. (This will install the CorePackage)

./omni_rinst.sh /tmp/omni_tmp/packet.Z co a.05.50 gpl/i386/linux-60 /usr/omni backup.domain.org


(NOTE: Substitute backup.domain.org with the DNS name of your DP backup server.)
NOTE: If the exact name of the cell manager is not known, go to the cell manager machine and run the following command:
C:\>Program Files\OmniBack\bin\omnidbutil -show_cell_name

You will receive the following message:
Warning: Update of the omni_info file failed for co!
Omniback II software package successfully installed !


This install will delete the packet.Z file when finished.
You should now have a /usr/omni directory

Step 7:

Copy packet.z file for the Disk Agent install.

PATH: /media/cdrom/DP_DEPOT/DP_A0550_UXia64_IS.sd_depot/DATA-PROTECTOR/OMNI-OTHUX-P/opt/omni/databases/vendor/da/gpl/i386/linux-60/A.05.50/packet.Z

Step 8:

In the /tmp/omni_tmp directory run the following command. (This will install the DiskAgent Package)

./omni_rinst.sh /tmp/omni_tmp/packet.Z da a.05.50 gpl/i386/linux-60 /usr/omni backup.domain.org

(Note Substitute backup.domain.org with the DNS name of your DP backup server.)

Again, this erases the packet.Z file and puts files into the /usr/omni directory.

Step 9:

Check that an omni Service file has been created in /etc/xinetd.d/omni

Launch midnight commander (with the command 'mc').



Step 10:

Check that you have an /etc/pam.d/rexec (This should be installed as part of the installation of the rsh-server earlier.

Step 11:

omni_info:
  • Create a file /usr/omni/bin/install/omni_info
  • Put the following information into it:
    CORE_VERSION A.05.50
    DISK_AGENT_VERSION A.05.50
  • (F10) Save it and quit.
  • In Midnight Commander I like to copy (F5) an existing file and then edit it.

Step 12:

Edit /etc/services and add the following entry:
omni   5555/tcp            # Omniback II inet server

You should also comment out any existing services for this port. See Below.

Step 13:

Create an .rhosts file in the /root directory with the following information:

Backup.domain.org      root 


Step 14:

Make sure you can resolve the server by DNS.
Ping backup.domain.org.

If DNS is not configured you may need to add it to the host file.   /etc/hosts

Step 15:

Restart the xinetd service by going to:

YAST —> System —> Run Level Editor —> Expert mode —> Choose xinetd service —> Stop Now:

Then choose "Start Now", to restart the Service.

You should now be able to telnet to the OES server on port 5555.
