Need to backup Debian 6 physical server from DP 10.10 Cell

We need to establish backup of a Linux Debian 6 physical server. Cell is DP 10.10. How do we install the software on the Debian box?

The message from the Linux installation server is: "RPM Package Manager is not installed or configured properly", which probably is correct - as far as I have been able to tell RPM is not supported on Debian 6.

What can I do to work around this problem?

 

Thank you in advance,

Erik

Hello @ErikK,

You need to install xinetd and rpm to the Debian box first. Then try remote push. If it fails you can perform a local installation. If you need the steps, let me know.

Thank you.
I did try to install RPM, but was not allowed to do so. Is RPM at all possible to install in Debian 6?

Hello @ErikK,

You could also convert the rpm to deb, but this would not give you remote upgrade capabilities. So you should do the following on the Debian box first.

apt-get install rpm xinetd

Not sure what you mean, but most likely there are no repositories for Debian 6 anymore (where you can download the packages) because it is pretty old and even long term support ended on February 29, 2016.

Hello @ErikK

Not sure if this will work. Debian 6 is not supported in DP 10.10, only Debian 7.x and Debian 9. 

https://docs.microfocus.com/DP/SupportMatrix/10.10/Platform_Integrtn_SptMtx_DP10.x.pdf

But anyway, as mentioned for @Sebastian.Koehler, you need the xinetd and rpm to install DP on that server.
