NetBackup Solaris Client

Note that this page is actually doing an upgrade, it should not, however, differ much from an actual installation.

Backup Settings

Backup the following files and configuration:

cat /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf
SERVER = nbmaster.local.domain
SERVER = nbmaster
SERVER = nbmedia01
SERVER = nbmedia02
CLIENT_NAME = solarixbox01
sjoerd@solarixbox:/appl/home/sjoerd/nbclupgrade$ svcs | grep nb
legacy_run     Sep_21   lrc:/etc/rc2_d/S95nbclient
root@solarixbox:/home/sjoerd/nbclupgrade# svcs | grep pbx
online         12:51:14 svc:/system/vxpbx:default

Prepare Installation Files

The downloaded client is really big since it holds the installation files for all unix/linux clients. Because of that it is chopped into three. After downloading you can combine and unpack the two files like this:
