TroubleShooting

If you get this error:

cp: preserving permissions for `/usr/openv/pack/NB_CLT_7.5.0.4/save/NB_update.uninstall': Operation not supported
cp: preserving ACL for `/usr/openv/pack/NB_CLT_7.5.0.4/save/NB_update.uninstall': Operation not supported

You're probably running the installation from a NFS mount which supports more permissions than the Red Hat server does. See also this discussion on the subject.

This can be recognized by the + signs at the end of the permission column:

root@redhatbox:/home/sjoerd/nbclupgrade# ll
total 1955717
-rwxr-xr-x+ 1 root bin     106132 Sep 17 18:38 NB_update.install

-rw-r--r--+ 1 root bin       9298 Sep 17 18:39 VrtsNB_CLT_7.5.0.4.README
-rw-r--r--+ 1 root bin  587182521 Sep 17 18:35 VrtsNB_CLT_7.5.0.4.Solaris.tar.gz

Your solution is to copy the installation source to a local filesystem or if you can't do that, to disable the advanced permissions on the NFS share.

Disk Space Shortage

The install takes up a lot of temporary space, so you could run out of disk space. You can mount a NFS datastore in the client and pack directory to save space:

root@redhatbox:/usr/openv/netbackup# mount -t nfs nfsbox:/home/sjoerd/temp /usr/openv/netbackup/client/ -o rw
root@redhatbox:/usr/openv/netbackup# mount -t nfs nfsbox:/home/sjoerd/temp /usr/openv/pack/ -o rw
