Installing Data Protector cell manager on a minimal-install Redhat 7 / Centos 7
This is more of a note to myself, but if you do a "minimal" install of RedHat or Centos, you will be missing a number of important packages.
Here's what I do to fix this, before running omnisetup.sh
echo 'PATH=$PATH:/opt/omni/bin:/opt/omni/sbin:/opt/omni/lbin' \
chmod +x /etc/profile.d/omni.sh
useradd -m hpdp
yum install net-tools bc xinetd glibc.i686
yum install bind-utils psmisc mlocate telnet
;# not really necessary, but so useful...
mkdir -p /etc/opt/omni/server
chmod a+rx /etc/opt/omni/server
Then edit /etc/man_db.conf and add the following two lines in the appropriate stanzas.
MANPATH_MAP /opt/omni/bin /opt/omni/lib/man
MANDB_MAP /opt/omni/lib/man /var/cache/man/omni
You probably won't need a firewall on your Data Protector cell manager. In any case, the installer doesn't add exceptions to the firewalling rules like it does on Windows, so the cell manager can't import itself or start properly.
systemctl stop firewalld
systemctl disable firewalld
Now you can run
omnisetup.sh -CM -IS -install da,ma,cc,StoreOnceSoftware,autodr
