  • Hello,

    For the error:

    -- The required xinetd or inetd daemon is not installed on the client system...

    You need to install the "xinetd" on the Red Hat server, usually the command will be:

    yum install xinetd

    Once is installed, try the Cell Manager installation again.

    For the Windows Client Installation, you will need the Data Protector 9.0 Software for Windows, then, run the setup.exe and follow the wizard. If the Client can`t communicate with the Cell Manager, check the Linux Firewall status, sometimes is not correctly set, as a test you can disable it using the command:  service iptables stop

    To start it : service iptables start

    Please include the Qualstar Library model, to check in the support matrix if the library is supported.

    Regards,

     

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your response.

    yes, right now the Xinetd sucessfully installaed. and HPDP also installed in RHEL7.

    Please suggest me how to see HPDP software in GUI in RHEL7. after that only, we can add Tape library and Installation server to this cell manager. then we can able to do next step.

    QualStar tape library Model is:  RLS-8350

    Thanks

  • Hello Umma,

    I notice the tape Library as supported only in Windows 32/64 bits and IBM Aix, but is not supported in Linux. This means that the library needs to set attached and configured under a server using Windows. 

    You can search for the "Device Support Matrix for Data Protector 9.0x"or any other documentation in the Software Support website.

    For the Data Protector GUI, the recommendation will be to use a Windows machine with the Data Protector GUI installed on it, it`s the best option. You can install the Data Protector GUI component, and from this computer access the Cell Manager.

    Regards,
