5.5. Extract the downloaded file.
default, the NetWorker software is installed in the /usr directory; however,
the Software can be installed in a different directory. If you have
insufficient disk space On the /usr partition, choose another location to
install the software.
Networker installation on Linux OS:
Note: The NetWorker software uses the rpm utility for installation. To
install the NetWorker software on the computer designated as the NetWorker
To install the client
1.Log in to the NetWorker Linux client.
2.Change to the directory containing the NetWorker software.
3.Type the appropriate command:
•For Intel x86:
rpm -ivh lgtoclnt-7.4-1.x86.rpm
Storage node installation:
computers designated as storage nodes, install the NetWorker client and storage
node software. The storage node package must be installed on the NetWorker server,
regardless of whether separate systems are used as designated storage nodes.
To install the storage node software:
1.Change to the directory containing the NetWorker software.
2.Type this command to install the client and storage node
2.If the NetWorker software has been downloaded from the web:
•Type the following command to verify that execute permissions
are applied to the JRE
•File. For example: chmod +x
•Change to the directory where the JRE is to be installed.
•Run this executable: j2re-1_5_0_09-linux-i586.bin
•Accept the Java
3.Change to the directory containing the NetWorker software.
4.Type this command to install the NetWorker client software, if
not already installed:
5.Start the NetWorker daemons, if not already started.
6.To install the NetWorker Console software,
type: rpm -ivh lgtonmc-7.4-1.x86.rpm
default, the software is installed in /opt.
7.Run this configuration script: /opt/lgtonmc/bin/nmc_config
8.Follow the prompts to install the software. For example:
•For the web server port number, use the default IP port number
(9000) or use a custom
•IP port number. Valid IP port numbers are between 1024
•For the NetWorker Console server, use the default IP port
number (9001) or use a
custom IP port number. Valid IP port numbers are between 1024
Do not use IP port numbers that are already in use. Port 2638
is reserved by the NetWorker Console software by using the
Tabular Data Stream (TDS) protocol to communicate with the database. Port 9002
is the preferred port for EMC Backup Advisor product.
9.Start the NetWorker Console daemons if not already started:
•The NetWorker Console daemons include the following:
10.For Red Hat Enterprise Server 4 only, from the client machine
with more than one JRE installed, you may want to reconfigure the usage of the
JRE as follows:
·Run the Java Web Start application
named javaws. This application is located in the
same directory where the JRE 1.5.0_06 software was installed.
·From the Java Application Runtime Settings window:
·Check the JRE 1.4.2_11 version software. This forces the Java
Web Start application to use JRE version 1.4.2_11 to run applications.
·Uncheck the other versions of the JRE software, for example JRE
·Start the NetWorker Console
server. The Console launch page appears.
·Specify that you want to run the Console using the Java Web
Start version 1.5 software. You must type the path to the Java Web Start
There are two libraries, libXp.so.6 and
libXm.so.3 (open motiff lib), that are required on
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 to launch the nwrecover program. By default,
these libraries are not part of the operating system.
11.If the Console server and the NetWorker server are installed on
separate host, you must add the Console administrator to the administrator
lists of the monitored NetWorker server. This enables the Console administrator
to administer and monitor the target NetWorker server.
On the NetWorker server:
·Specify the process owner of the Console daemon process
depending on which host contains the Console server:
– If on a
Microsoft Windows host, type:
-u "user=SYSTEM, host=console_host"
– If on a
AIX, HP-UX, Linux or Solaris only host, type:
