Support Tip: Install client on Linux Ubuntu host


First things first, open up a console on the Client Server and let's get into "root" mode.

The installation programs that come on the installation DVD or package software are in rpm format. So we need to install the rpm manager with: aptitude install rpm

  • We then need to create a directory for rpm :
    • mkdir -p /var/lib/rpm


  • Then initialize a database for it:
    • rpm --initdb

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
  • mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
  • cd /media/cdrom/LOCAL_INSTALL

./ -install da,ma

Here are some check points to validate your installation:

    • tail /etc/services
    • the last two lines should read:


  • Local services
    • omni 5555/tcp # DATA-PROTECTOR
    • grep omni /etc/inetd.conf


  • You should have:
    • omni stream tcp nowait root /opt/omni/lbin/inet inet -log /var/opt/omni//log/inet.log
