Re-Installing DP agents on to Sun Solaris

HI,. Using DP 6.21 from a Windows box to backup several windows + Sun boxes. One of the Solaris boxes was configured as the install server for all the unix boxes. Unfortunately the oracle dba accidentally deleted the runtime files and to cut a long story short he had to completelt re-build and re-install from backup. Part of the restore was the DP installation files installed on there, however since the rebuild it will not back up to Data protector. I can do a check on the installation and it says it is fine and up to date and I can telnet on 5555 and it comes back and says it is the correct version of DP etc but within DP Console it does not show that any agents are installed on the bo

 

I have tried to push the agents out to it using the DP backup box but no agents are displayed to select. I am a Windows admin so not too sure how I re-install the media/disk agents to the Sun box. The Oracle admin guy can do it but we do not know what to run. Can anyone help please?

 

Thanks in advance.

You need to have an installation of DP created as the installation server.  Your Windows box probably can't push because it's not created as an installation server (with the necessary Solaris files).  My suggestion is to either install from scratch on the Solaris system, making sure you set the "installation server" bit, or, promote the Windows system to an installation server by installing those bits.

Which you choose depends on the architecture of your environment (including connectivity between the various systems) and scalability of your backup server.

Cheers Self-Govern. Windows server is an installation server but only seems to be able to push to windows boxes. The damaged Sun server was the installation server for the unix boxes. Have managed to download Solaris 6.21 version and after re-installing on Sun box it now works ok and can be seen and selected from cell manager.
