Installing DataProtector Agent on Solaris 8

Good morning,

 

I'm trying to install the DataProtector Agent on a Solaris 8 server.

 

We have a Cell Manager 7 / Installation Server on a Windows server host.

 

The agent provide with this version won't install on Solaris 8.

 

Which version of DPA should I install and where can I find it ?

 

Thank you for your help.

We've got a couple of Solaris 8 servers.  They are on DP 5.5 DiskAgent.

Hi jruffer,

 

But I do not have access to this version of the agent, I only have agent v 7.00...

 

Where can I download it ?

Solaris 8 Disk agent was last available with DP 6.21

 

Although not officially supported, there are some that, because of Application restrictions, are using different version of DP within the same cell

 

You would need to download the installation bits for DP 6 from the URL

 

https://h20575.www2.hp.com/evalportal/displayProductsList.do?prdcenter=HPSS_DM&lang=en&cc=US&hpappid=PDAPI_EVAL_PRO2

 

and install the disk agent for Solaris, and import it into your cell

 

You would also need to make this Solaris a Installation server, so that you could download the patch bundle DPSOLBDL_00621  for DP 6.21, available at

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/patches

 

 install it , and distribute it to your Solaris server

Hi,

 

I've download this file > Software_HP_DP_6.11_for_Media_Operations_B7129_15005.iso.

 

I've install the client, "HPMedOps.pk" from the folder "xmlgw\solaris".

 

The services are correctyl running: "hpdmcomms successfully started" and "hpdpxmlgw successfully started".

 

But I'm not sur if I have installed the correct agent, because the services are running on ports "25555" and "25556".

 

Can you tell me if I'm wrong for now ?

 

Thank you.
