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 root root 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.

It is no problem us doing this but FYI if you ever want to do it yourself
it takes about a minute or less:

harbor:/[1144]# cd /usr/share/adm/igor/hosts
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1147]# co -l adicone 
co error: RCS/adicone,v: No such file or directory
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1148]# grep adicone *
pier:@if HOSTNAME == "adicone"
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1149]# co -l pier 
RCS/pier,v  -->  pier
revision 1.295 (locked)
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1150]# vi pier 

I add the line:

@       define OMNI_SERVER

to the adicone host definition and exit the editor...

harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1151]# ci -u pier
RCS/pier,v  <--  pier
new revision: 1.296; previous revision: 1.295
enter log message, terminated with single '.' or end of file:
>> added OMNI_SERVER to adicone
>> .
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1152]# rdist -c $PWD/pier adicone
updating host adicone
updating: /usr/share/adm/igor/hosts/pier
harbor:/usr/share/adm/igor/hosts[1153]# rsh -x adicone /usr/local/etc/igor -a
