Backups: Adding Unix Machines to Backups
Adding Unix and Linux Machines to Backups
1. The /.rhosts file must include back and backtwo :
Pier# cat /.rhosts harbor.ecn.purdue.edu root back.ecn.purdue.edu root backtwo.ecn.purdue.edu root
This allows OmniBack to login and install the DiskAgent and make a sym link:
Pier# ls -lsd /usr/omni 2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 9 Aug 17 2001 /usr/omni -> /opt/omni Pier# ls -lsd /opt/omni 2 drwxr-xr-x 8 root sys 512 Jun 14 2000 /opt/omni
2. OMNI_SERVER has to be set by the software staff in Igor.

I've updated igor to include all 195 ECN supported hosts that are currently on backups. If a UNIX host doesn't operate the OmniBack service in inetd, then the variable OMNI_SERVER isn't set, and will need adding to the host's definition.
