Adding Ubuntu 16.04 LTS client ton DP 9.08

Jump to solution

Hi There,

I am having difficulty to add a Ubuntu client either manually or via a DP installation server. When trying to add the client manually using the omnisetup.sh script , here is what I have done and the output results:-

The problem I found is the when using omnisetup.sh -install da Ubuntu does not recognise the rpm files under /DP_DEPOT, so one question what is the workaround? I have done the following so far:-

1. apg-get install rpm netkit-inetd
2. add line to inetd.conf " omni stream tcp nowait root /opt/omni/lbin/inet inet-log /var/opt/omni/log/inet.log
3. chmod +x omnisetup.sh
4. omnisetup.sh -install da

And I get the following output
root@nscf:/tmp/DP9/LOCAL_INSTALL# ./omnisetup.sh -server prdpcell.nhls.ac.za -install da

The omnisetup.sh script did not complete the last time it was run.
Client still has to be installed. (omnicf ts_core da)

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

No Data Protector software detected on the target system.



Packets going to be (re)installed: omnicf ts_core da


Installing Core (omnicf)...


RPM Package Manager is not installed or configured properly.
Setup cannot continue. Installation of the Data Protector CORE component failed.

I have also disabled the firewall on the Ubuntu side, and generated ssh keys for the Linux Redhat 7.1 DP installation server and Ubuntu 16.04 client.

Has anyone had this problem and managed a work around?

Kind Regards,

Jose

Thanks to HPE Software Support Team for their support and recommendations the installation went well after several action items had to be adhered to, here is the outcome:-

Please note that Data Protector doesn’t support installing locally on Ubuntu, you have to use a HP-UX/Redhat Linux 7.0 DP installation server or similar to install DP 9.08  into a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and import it to the DP Windows Cell Manager.

DP Windows 2012 Cell Manager and Linux Redhat 7.2 installation server had to be upgraded to DP9.08
The ssh keys between the Ubuntu and Redhat Linux 7.2 server had to be configured. Also I had to for the rpm files to work I had to do the following on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Client:-
root# which rpm
"will tell you that the following rpm is used:"
/usr/bin/rpm
root# echo $PATH
The Ouput will tell you that
/usr/local/bin
is before /usr/bin
So I created a file
/usr/local/bin/rpm
containing the following line
/usr/bin/rpm --force-debian $@
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/rpm

Also had to edit the .omnirc file on the Linus Redhat 7.2 installation server to include the following:-
In the IS (installation server) set in omnirc the parameter :
OB2_SSH_ENABLED=1
(this will make the installation to use SSH ).

After all the above done I could install DP to the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server successfully using the Linux Redhat installation.

hope the above information will be of great value to anyone who encounters the same problem.

Kind Regards,

Jose
