NetBackup Installation Steps

Hi Experts,

I want to install the veritas Netbackup software in the Linux Systems.
The veritas netbackup has already installed on Windows which are the Master/Slave and media servers.
I need to configure one Linux System just to take the backup.
Can you help me how to install the software and what are the recommended patches to install after the installation of software.
I have already gone through the manuals for the installation steps but i need to know should i need to install the client software steps? Kindly recommend me and also provide me the shortcut steps.

The media servers and the baremetal servers are using 6.5.3 version of netbackup.

Hi all,
We have defined the policy in Veritas Netbackup console and now we are able to see the client in the administration console.
