Introduction
About the NetWorker product
The EMC® NetWorker product is a storage management software suite that provides
backup, recovery, and other services to machines with a wide variety of operating systems
and data types. NetWorker products for different operating systems are interoperable. This
provides the flexibility to design a storage management system that works best with the
current computing environment.
The NetWorker software is distributed in these formats:
◆
In a media kit that contains the software and electronic documentation for several
related NetWorker products.
◆
As a downloadable archive file from the EMC Online Support Site web site.
The NetWorker product has these components:
◆
NetWorker client
◆
NetWorker storage node
◆
NetWorker server
◆
NetWorker management console server
◆
NetWorker language packs
◆
NetWorker license manager
NetWorker client
The NetWorker client software communicates with the NetWorker server and provides
client initiated backup and recover functionality. The NetWorker client software is installed
on all machines that are backed up to the NetWorker server.
NetWorker storage node
Data is backed up directly to devices local to a NetWorker server or remotely to a
NetWorker storage node. A storage node controls storage devices such as tape drives, disk
devices, autochangers, and silos. The NetWorker server is a local storage node.
A remote NetWorker storage node:
12
◆
Off-loads most of the data movement involved in a backup or recovery operation from
the NetWorker server
◆
Improves performance.
◆
Requires high I/O bandwidth to manage the transfer of data transfer from local clients,
or network clients to target devices.
◆
Can be a different operating system from the NetWorker server.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Introduction
NetWorker server
The NetWorker server provides services to back up and recover data for the NetWorker
client machines in a datazone. The NetWorker server can also act as a storage node and
control multiple remote storage nodes.
Index and media management operations are some of the primary processes of the
NetWorker server:
◆
The client file index tracks the files that belong to a save set. There is one client file
index for each client.
◆
The media database tracks:
• The volume name.
• The location of each save set fragment on the physical media (file number/file
record).
• The backup dates of the save sets on the volume.
• The file systems in each save set.
◆
Unlike the client file indexes, there is only one media database per server.
◆
The client file indexes and media database can grow to become prohibitively large
over time and will negatively impact backup performance.
◆
The NetWorker server schedules and queues all backup operations, tracks real-time
backup and restore related activities, and all Console server communication.
This information is stored for a limited amount of time in the jobsdb database which
for real-time operations, has the most critical backup server performance impact. The
data stored in the jobsdb database is not required for restore operations.
NetWorker Management Console server
The NetWorker Management Console (NMC) server or Console server, is a Java based web
application server that provides centralized:
◆
Management of multiple NetWorker servers across multiple datazones.
◆
Monitoring of multiple NetWorker servers across multiple datazones.
◆
Backup reporting of multiple NetWorker servers across multiple datazones.
The Console server:
◆
Is installed on an AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Microsoft Windows host.
◆
Is accessed through a graphical user interface on a host with a web-enabled browser
that has the specified version of Java Runtime configured.
Multiple users can access the Console server concurrently from different browser
sessions. A machine that hosts the web-enabled browser can also be a NetWorker
client, server, or storage node.

Introduction
◆
Embeds the Apache server 2.2.21 software.
The apache software is used to:
• Download of the Console jar files.
• Startup of the Console server daemon or service.
◆
Embeds the Sybase SQL Anywhere software.
The Console server database is a Sybase SQL Anywhere database.
NetWorker datazone
A NetWorker datazone is a single NetWorker server and its client and storage node
machines.
NetWorker daemons
The NetWorker software requires processes on Windows or daemons on UNIX to run on the
system and facilitate NetWorker operations in the datazone.
Table 1 on page 14 lists the NetWorker daemons for each of the software components.

enabled.
◆
The nsrlcpd process or daemon is present on a NetWorker server and storage nodes
with an attached library.
◆
The nsrcpd process or daemon is present on the NetWorker server during a client push
software upgrade.
◆
The Console server daemon, gstd starts these additional processes:
• dbsrv12 — the SQL Anywhere database process.
• httpd — there will be 2 or more httpd processes.
• gstsnmptrapd — an optional process that is present on the Console server when
SNMP Trap monitoring is configured for a Data Domain system.

Multi-locale datazone considerations
This section provides information to consider, when using the NetWorker software in a
multi-locale datazone.
In a multi-locale datazone, machines are configured to run in different locales. The
NetWorker software supports a multi-locale datazone.
The NetWorker command line interface (CLI), the Console server graphical user interface
(NMC GUI) and the NetWorker client GUIs, including the NetWorker User program and the
nwrecover program are I18N compliant.
22
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Software Requirements
In a multi-locale datazone, users can display data and remotely manage their NetWorker
environment in the locale that is defined on their local machine. Different locales on the
local machine, the NetWorker server, and the Console server are supported.
The NetWorker software includes language pack support for the French, the Japanese, the
Simplified Chinese, the Korean and the English locales.
The NetWorker software supports:
◆
The languages and character sets that are supported on the underlying OS.
◆
UTF-8 encoded input and output files.
◆
Non-English scheduled backup and archive requests.
◆
Non-English mounts on UNIX machines.
These mounts are detected and backed up during a “All” save set backup.
◆
A directed recover to a non-English relocation directory.
◆
A save set recover of a non-English save set independent of the locale of the source
machine.
◆
The NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide describes how to perform NetWorker tasks in
a multi-locale datazone.
Before configuring the NetWorker software in a multi-locale datazone, review the following
considerations,:
◆
“General multi-locale considerations” on page 23
◆
“Windows considerations” on page 24
◆
“UNIX considerations” on page 24
General multi-locale considerations
This section describes general considerations to review before installing the NetWorker
software in a multi-locale datazone.
Consider the following:
◆
To view localized textual elements such as radio buttons and menu options, the dates,
the times, and the numbers in the CLI, the NMC GUI, and the NetWorker client GUIs,
ensure that:
• The required language font is installed on the operating system of the machine
that is accessing the application interface.
• The corresponding language locale is enabled on the operating system of the
machine that is accessing the application interface.
• The corresponding language locale is enabled on the Console server.
• The corresponding language pack included with the NetWorker software package
is installed on the NetWorker client, server, storage node and Console server.
◆
The NetWorker software does not support locales defined by the operating system or
code sets that remap characters that have a special meaning for file systems, such as
De_DE.646. Depending on the file system, these special characters might include the
forward slash (/), the backward slash (\), the colon (:), or the period(.).
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
23
Software Requirements
◆
If the appropriate non-English font is not available on the Console client, the localized
textual elements might be rendered in english or appears as illegible.
◆
The CLI displays the data correctly when the character and encoding is supported by
the current locale. However, if the user and system locales do not match on a
Windows host, characters might display incorrectly.
◆
The NetWorker software provides a command line log viewer, the nsr_render_log
program to render English log file messages into the locale of the user running the
program.
◆
Message files that support localization include the:
• daemon.raw file
• nsrcpd.raw file — the client push log
• gstd.raw file — the Console server log file
• networkr.raw file — the Windows recover y log file
The NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide on EMC Online Support Site provides
detailed information to view raw log files.
The NetWorker 8.0 Command Reference Guide or the UNIX man pages provides
detailed information to use the nsr_render_log program.
Windows considerations
This section provides general locale considerations, when using a Windows Console client
or the NetWorker User program in a multi-locale NetWorker datazone.
When non-UTF8 data from a UNIX machine uses encoding that is not supported natively by
Windows, for example euc-jp, the UNIX machine data will not appear correctly on the
Windows machine.
The textual elements, the dates, the times, and the numbers that appear in the NMC GUI
and the NetWorker User program are based on the language and the time values defined
in the Regional and Language Options settings in control panel.
UNIX considerations
This section provides general locale considerations when using a UNIX Console client or
the nwrecover program in a multi-locale NetWorker datazone.
Consider the following:
◆
A non-ASCII installation directory for the NetWorker software is not supported. Create
a symbolic link of the /nsr folder to a non-ASCII directory.
◆
How the data appears in the nwrecover program depends on:
• The locale setting of the UNIX machine.
• Correct X Windows configuration.
24
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Software Requirements
◆
To display non-English textual elements, the dates, the times, and the numbers in the
NMC GUI and nwrecover program ensure that:
• The appropriate NetWorker language package is installed on the client.
• The locale values defined by the LC_ALL and LANG environment variables match
the NetWorker language pack installed.
For example, on Solaris:
– To use the French NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG fr
setenv LC_ALL fr
– To use the Japanese NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG ja
setenv LC_ALL ja
– To use the Simplified Chinese NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG zh
setenv LC_ALL zh
– To use the Korean NetWorker language pack, type:
setenv LANG ko
setenv LC_ALL ko
TCP/IP requirements
This section describes the TCP/IP network communication requirements for the NetWorker
software.
Consider the following:
◆
All NetWorker server, storage nodes, and client host machines must have TCP/IP
installed, configured, and networked.
◆
Ensure that the clients in the datazone:
• Can resolve the longname, the shortname, and the IP address of the NetWorker
server and storage nodes that the client is configured to send the data to.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can resolve its own longname, shortname and IP address.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can successfully ping the NetWorker server by longname, shortname and IP
address.
• Have a route to the NetWorker server and storage node that the client is configured
to send the data to.
Use the tracert command on Windows and the traceroute command on UNIX to
confirm route paths.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
25
Software Requirements
◆
Ensure that the NetWorker server:
• Can resolve the longname, shortname, and IP address of each NetWorker client
and storage node machine in the datazone.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can resolve its own longname, shortname, and IP address.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can successfully ping all of the NetWorker clients and storage nodes in the
datazone by longname, shortname, and IP address.
• Has a route to the all of the NetWorker clients and storage nodes in the datazone.
Use the tracert command on Windows and the traceroute command on UNIX to
confirm the route paths.
◆
Ensure that the NetWorker storage nodes in the datazone:
• Can resolve the longname, shortname, and IP address of the NetWorker server.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can resolve the longname, shortname and IP address of the clients that configured
to send backup data to the storage node.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can resolve its own longname, shortname, and IP address.
Use the nslookup command to confirm name resolution is correct.
• Can successfully ping all of the NetWorker clients and storage nodes in the
datazone by longname, shortname, and IP address.
• Has a route to the NetWorker server and the NetWorker clients that it receives data
from.
Use the tracert command on Windows and the traceroute command on UNIX to
confirm route paths.
◆
The /etc/hosts file on each Solaris and Linux NetWorker client, server and storage
node must contain an entry for the IPv4 loopback address:
127.0.0.1
26
localhost.localdomain localhost
◆
If the NetWorker server is a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client, the
NetWorker server must have a reserved address that is synchronized with DNS.
◆
The TCP/IP hostname must be identical to the machine name.
◆
The NetWorker software does not support machines with an underscore character (_)
in the machine name.

communicate across a packet filtering or statefull inspection firewall.
• How to troubleshoot communication issues between the NetWorker hosts.
• How to configure TCPKeepAlive parameters for the supported operating systems.
IPv6 protocol considerations
This section describes the information to consider when using the IPv6 protocol in a
NetWorker datazone.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a next generation internet protocol that is used
concurrently with IPv4 or in a pure IPv6 environment.
IPv6 increases the number of available IP addresses and adds improvements the areas of
routing and network autoconfiguration.
IPv6 addresses are represented by 8 groups of 16-bit hexadecimal values separated by
colons (:).
For example:
2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334
When using IPv6, consider the following:
◆
Most newer operating systems configure the IPv6 loopback interface, by default.
To determine if the IPv6 loopback interface is configured on the host, use operating
system tools such as ifconfig on UNIX and ipconfig on Windows.
On UNIX systems, the device name of the loopback interface is usually lo or lo0.
◆
When the IPv6 loopback interface is configured, the /etc/hosts file on all Linux and
UNIX operating must have an entry that associates the IPv6 loopback interface (::1)
with the localhost.
The IPv6 loopback interface entry is in addition to, and must be added before, the IPv4
loopback entry (127.0.0.1 localhost)
For example:
::1 localhost
127.0.0.1
◆
localhost.localdomain localhost
When the IPv6 loopback interface is configured, the IPv6 loopback entry must remain
in the /etc/hosts file. This is required when the machine is operating in a pure IPv4,
pure IPv6, or dual stack configuration.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
27
Software Requirements
◆
The NetWorker software does not support temporary or link-local IPv6 addresses.
The client backup fails when the IPv6 address for a client:
• Is not stored in DNS or in the hosts file.
• Is not added to the client resource.
Client software requirements
Before installing NetWorker software on your client system, ensure that the specific client
operating system and hardware configuration is supported.
The EMC Information Protection Software Compatibility Guide provides the most
up-to-date information about compatibility.
When configuring Avamar deduplication backups, consider the following cache file size
requirements:
◆
Additional disk space is required for the caches. The number of caches varies
depending on the number of backup paths that are included in the Save set attribute
of the Client resource.
◆
Each backup path in the Save set attribute requires two caches:
• a file cache
• a cache for hash tables
The file cache can be up to 1/8 of the RAM on the machine, and the hash cache can be
up to 1/16 of the RAM. Both caches have a maximum size of 2 GB.
The maximum disk space required for caching is the sum of the maximum size of the
file and hash caches, multiplied by the number of backup paths.
Storage node and device requirements
Before installing the NetWorker software on a storage node, ensure that the operating
system recognizes the devices.
To avoid potential data loss when using tape devices:
◆
Ensure that the block-size mode for the tape devices is variable. Otherwise, the data
recover might fail. The procedure to setup the device block size varies depending on
the operating system.
◆
Use a nonrewinding tape device for NetWorker backups. The NetWorker software
writes a filemark on the volume at the end of each backup. When the next backup
occurs, the NetWorker software appends the data to the volume based on the position
of the filemark. If a device automatically rewinds the tape, the filemark position is lost
and the next backup overwrites existing data. The data is unrecoverable.
Configuring Tape Devices for EMC NetWorker Technical Note on EMC Online Support Site
provides best practices on how to configure tape devices for use by NetWorker server and
storage nodes.

information about compatibility.
Console server considerations
Before installing the Console server software:
◆
Install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6.x or 1.7 on the Console server to:
• Enable the command line reporting feature.
• Download and display the console client GUI on the Console server machine.
◆
JRE is not packaged with NetWorker 8.0. If JRE is not installed on the machine,
downloaded the software from http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.
◆
The Console server software requires the NetWorker client software to be installed on
the system.
◆
The Console server software can be installed on the NetWorker server but it is not
recommended when:
• The NetWorker server manages 50 or more clients.
• The Console server will monitor multiple datazones.
◆
The minimum system requirements for a Console server machine is 1 GHz with 512
MB of RAM.
To monitor:
• 50 servers: Use an Console server with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less
than 2 GB of RAM.
• 100 servers: Use an NMC with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less than 4
GB of RAM.
• 200 servers: Use an NMC with at least Dual 1 GHz processors and no less than 8
GB of RAM.
◆
Configure the Console server as a client of the NetWorker server. This is required to
backup the Console server database.
The NetWorker 8.0 Administrators Guide describes how to configure an Console server
database backup.

Updating from a previous release
Introduction
When updating to the NetWorker server or Console server to version 8.0 or later, there are
changes made to the NetWorker server and Console server that prevent a direct
downgrade. This means that after the NetWorker server or the Console server is updated,
you cannot revert to a previous version of the NetWorker software without additional
steps.
A direct downgrade is not supported as a result of the following changes:
◆
On the NetWorker server:
• A database conversion of the jobsdb database is performed.
• The resource database, nsrdb is modified.
Modifications include:
– All read-only devices are removed. For example, the read-only device for an
AFTD and Data Domain devices.
– A new backup level, synthetic full replaces the consolidate backup level. Group
resources that are configured with the consolidate backup level prior to an
update, will not have a backup level defined after the NetWorker server
software is updated to version 8.0.
The NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide describes how to perform a synthetic
full backup.
– For an AFTD only, the name of a NetWorker device is automatically added to the
Device Access Information attribute for the device.
◆
32
On the Console server, the SQL Anywhere 9.0 database is converted to a SQL
Anywhere 12 format.

Interoperability and backward compatibility considerations
This section provides important information about the interoperability and backwards
compatibility of the NetWorker 8.0 software.
Before updating any machine in the datazone to NetWorker 8.0, review these
interoperability considerations:
◆
A NetWorker 8.0 server is not compatible with a NetWorker 7.6.x or earlier storage
node.
Update all of the NetWorker storage nodes to version 8.0 before updating the
NetWorker server.
NetWorker 7.6.x and earlier storage nodes are disabled by a NetWorker 8.0 server.
◆
A NetWorker 7.5.x server cannot be directly updated to NetWorker 8.0.
Update the NetWorker 7.5.x datazone to version 8.0 in the following order:
• Update the NetWorker 7.5.x server to version 7.6.x.
• Update each NetWorker storage node to version 8.0.
• Update the NetWorker 7.6.x server software to version 8.0.
• Update the NetWorker clients to version 8.0.
34
◆
A NetWorker 7.5.x Console server that is not also the NetWorker server can be directly
updated to the NetWorker 8.0 software.
◆
When the Console server is not the NetWorker server, update the Console server to
version 8.0 before updating the NetWorker server.
◆
A NetWorker 8.0 storage node is compatible with a NetWorker 7.6.x server.
◆
A NetWorker 8.0 client is compatible with a NetWorker 7.5.x and 7.6.x server.
◆
NetWorker 7.5.x and 7.6.x clients are compatible with a NetWorker 8.0 server.
◆
If the host operating system of a NetWorker server, a storage node, or a client will also
be updated, update the operating system first, then update the NetWorker software.
◆
NetWorker Module for Microsoft Applications (NMM) 2.3 is not supported with
NetWorker 8.0. Update the NMM software to NMM 2.4 before updating the NetWorker
server and storage nodes to NetWorker 8.0.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Updating from a previous release
Determine the NetWorker version on the storage nodes
This section describes how to determine the NetWorker software version that is running on
storage nodes in the datazone.
Before updating the NetWorker server software, update each NetWorker storage node to
the NetWorker 8.0 software version.
NetWorker 7.6.x and earlier storage nodes are disabled by a NetWorker 8.0 server.
Use the nsradmin program to determine the NetWorker version installed on the storage
nodes in a datazone:
1. Log in to the NetWorker server as root on UNIX or as administrator on Windows.
2. From a command prompt, type:
nsradmin
3. Set the attribute type to nsr storage node:
nsradmin> . type: nsr storage node
4. Display the hostname of the storage node and the NetWorker software version:
nsradmin> show name;version
5. Display a list of every storage node in the datazone and the corresponding version of
the NetWorker software:
nsradmin> print
6. Close the nsradmin program:
nsradmin> quit
For example:
nsradmin> . type: nsr storage node
Current query set
nsradmin> show name;version
nsradmin> print
name: mystoragenode.domain.com;
version: 7.6.3;
nsradmin> quit

Prepare the NetWorker server
This section describes how to prepare the NetWorker server for a software update.
Before updating the NetWorker server, ensure that:
◆
The media database and client file indexes are in a consistent state.
◆
You record the database locations.
◆
You perform a back up of the NetWorker server databases.
To prepare the NetWorker server:
1. Log in to the NetWorker server as root on UNIX or administrator on Windows.
2. Put the NetWorker databases in a consistent state:
nsrim -X
nsrck -m
nsrck -L6
3. Record the current location of the NetWorker media database:
nsrls -m
4. Record the current location of the NetWorker client file indexes:
nsrls
5. Record the range of ports the NetWorker software uses:
nsrports
6. Perform a back up of the bootstrap, the client file indexes, and the resource database
on the NetWorker server.
For example:
savegrp -O group
The specified group must contain all of the NetWorker clients in the datazone. This
ensures that all client file indexes are backed up.
If a group that contains all of the clients does not exist, run the savegrp command
more than once, specifying a different group each time, until all clients indexes are
backed up.
Ensure the media pool associated with the group has appendable media available.
36

7. Record the latest bootstrap save set ID (ssid) including the file number, the record
number, and the associated volume label.
For example:
mminfo -B
date
time
level ssid
10/11/11 16:29:40 full
4254377781
file
record volume
0
0
bootstrap_vol.001
In this example:
• The save set ID (ssid) is 4254377781.
• The file number is 0.
• The record number is 0.
• The label of the volume which contains the bootstrap save set is
bootstrap_vol.001.
Prepare the Console server
Before updating the Console server to NetWorker version 8.0, perform a level Full backup
of the Console server database.
“Backing up NetWorker Console Management data” in the NetWorker 8.0 Administrators
Guide provides more information.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
37
Updating from a previous release
Task 2: Review Console server considerations
When the Console server is updated to the NetWorker 8.0 software, the SQLAnywhere
database is automatically converted to a newer version. This conversion is performed by a
special migration utility, gstdbupgrade.sh on UNIX and gstdbupgrade.exe on Windows.
During the database conversion process, the migration utility:
◆
Automatically records the progress of the conversion in the gstdbupgrade.log.
◆
Displays the progress of the database conversion process to the console.
“Task 11: Review the status of the Console server database conversion” on page 45
provides more information about the migration process.
Before updating the Console server to version 8.0, consider the following:
◆
The Console server software is not supported on the following previously supported
operating systems:
• HP-UX 11i ver2, HP-UX 11iver3
• Windows 2003, 2003 SP1, 2003 R2
• AIX 5.2, AIX 5.3
• Solaris 9
If the Console server in the datazone is installed on one of these operating systems,
the Console server software cannot be updated to version 8.0.
Consider one of the following resolutions:
• Install a new Console server in the datazone on a supported operating system. To
provide historical reports, keep the old Console server at the previous NetWorker
version.
• Install a new Console server in the datazone on a supported operating system and
move the Console server database and configuration files to the new Console
server. “Task 9: Optional, move the Console server files to a new Console server”
on page 43 provides more information.
• Update the operating system to a supported version before updating the Console
servers software to version 8.0. The EMC Information Protection Software
Compatibility Guide on EMC Online Support Site provides more information on
supported Console server operating systems.
◆
The conversion of a large Console server database:
• Might take several hours.
For example, it takes approximately 3 hours to migrate a 4.5 GB database on a dual
core system with 16 GB RAM.
• Might be I/O and CPU intensive.
Avoid performing other resource intensive processes during a Console server
database conversion.
◆
38
The filesystem that contains the Console server database directory must have
available space that is equal to double the size of the current database.

Task 3: UNIX only, back up the configuration files
The NetWorker software installation process overwrites the existing NetWorker startup
script files. Back up the configuration files prior to installing the NetWorker software.
To back up the NetWorker configuration files:
1. Log in to the target machine as root.
2. Create a backup copy of the original files.
For example:
cp original_file backup_file

Task 4: Uninstall the previous version of the NetWorker software
Uninstall the previous version of the NetWorker software. Remove the NetWorker module
software including the NetWorker Module for Microsoft Applications and the NetWorker
Module for Databases and Applications before removing of the NetWorker software. The
appropriate module installation guide describes how to uninstall the module software.
Optionally on UNIX only, back up the syslog.conf file before removing the previous version
of the NetWorker software. The NetWorker entries created during the NetWorker 7.6.x and

Task 6: Install the NetWorker software
After the previous version of the NetWorker software is uninstalled, install the NetWorker
8.0 software.
Install the NetWorker 8.0 software on all NetWorker storage nodes before installing the
NetWorker 8.0 software on the NetWorker server.
The following sections describe how to install the NetWorker 8.0 software:
◆
“NetWorker software installation on AIX” on page 62
◆
“NetWorker software installation on HP-UX” on page 76
◆
“NetWorker software installation on Linux” on page 84
◆
“NetWorker software installation on Mac-OSX” on page 106
◆
“NetWorker software package installation on Solaris” on page 110
◆
“NetWorker and Console software installation on Windows” on page 124
When updating a NetWorker server, it is important to restart the NetWorker services after
the software update completes.
Task 7: UNIX only, retain startup script customizations
This section describes how to add startup script customizations that were made on
previous versions of the NetWorker software, to the new nsrrc file.
The NetWorker 8.0 software introduces support for a new environment variable file. This
file, nsrrc, is sourced prior to starting the nsrexecd and nsrd processes. This new file will
not be overwritten by subsequent software updates.
Add environment variables previously defined in the NetWorker startup files to this new
file:
1. Review the configuration files that were copied in “Task 3: UNIX only, back up the
configuration files” on page 39 for defined environment variable.
Do not overwrite the new startup files with the contents of the .orig files. The old
customizations must be added to the new environment variable file.
2. Create a Bourne shell script file called nsrrc in the /nsr directory.
3. Add the required environment variables and the export command to the nsrrc file.
For example:
ENV_VAR_NAME=value
export ENV_VAR_NAME
4. Save the file.

5. Stop the NetWorker daemons:
nsr_shutdown
6. Start the NetWorker daemons:
• On Solaris and Linux, type:
/etc/init.d/networker start
• On AIX, type:
/etc/rc.nsr
• On HP-UX, type:
/sbin/init.d/networker start
Task 8: NetWorker server only, update the Clone Storage Node attribute
When you update the NetWorker server software to NetWorker 8.0 and later, a new Clone
Storage Node attribute is automatically created for each existing Storage Node resource.
This attribute is used to determine which storage node is used when writing clone data.
In the NetWorker 7.6.x and earlier software, the Clone Storage Node attribute was present
in each NetWorker client resource. After a NetWorker server software update, the Clone
Storage Node attribute is still present in each client resource but the attribute is read-only
and the attribute is not used by the NetWorker 8.0 server to determine which storage node
to use when the writing clone data for the client.
By default, the Clone Storage Node attribute for each storage node resource does not
contain any values. If required, after updating the NetWorker server software, modify the
Clone Storage Node attribute for each storage node. The section Directing clones to a
special storage node in the NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide provides more
information.
Task 9: Optional, move the Console server files to a new Console server
If a new Console server is used in the datazone to replace an Console server that is on an
unsupported operating system, move the NMC database and configuration files to the
new Console server before installing the Console server software.
To move the Console server database and configuration files:
1. On the original Console server, stop the gstd process or service:
• On AIX, type: /etc/rc.gst stop
• On Linux & Solaris, type: /etc/init.d/gst stop
• On HP-UX, type: /sbin/init.d/gst stop
• On Windows: Stop the EMC GST service.
2. Ensure the httpd, gstd and dbsrv9 processes are not running. Use the kill -TERM to
stop the processes. Do not use the kill -9 command to stop the dbsrv9 process.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
43
Updating from a previous release
3. Copy the contents of the Console server database directory from the original Console
server to a new directory on the new Console server.
The Console server database directory is in the following default locations:
• AIX, HP-UX, and Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/lgto_gstb
• Solaris: /opt/LGTOnmc/lgto_gstb
• Windows: installation_dir\Management\lgto_gstb
The lgto_gstdb and lgto_gst.log files are binary files and gstd_db.conf is an ascii file.
Ensure these files are copied accordingly.
Task 10: Install the Console server software
This section describes how to install the Console server software.
On UNIX, if the Console server is also the NetWorker server:
◆
Ensure that the httpd, gstd, and dbsrv9 processes are not running.
• If gstd is running ensure the Console server software is uninstalled.
• If the Console server software is uninstalled and the httpd and dbsrv9 processes
are running, use the kill -TERM to stop the processes. Do not use the kill -9
command to stop the dbsrv9 process.
◆
Install the NetWorker 8.0 Console server software after the NetWorker software is
successfully installed.
On Windows, the Console server software is automatically installed during the NetWorker
software update, extra installation steps are not required. “NetWorker and Console
software installation on Windows” on page 124 provides more information.
The following sections describe how to install the Console server software on the
supported UNIX operating systems:

Task 11: Review the status of the Console server database conversion
This section describes how to determine if the Console server database conversion is
successful and how to attempt another database conversion when errors are encountered.
To confirm that the conversion is successful:
◆
Review the gstd_db.conf file. The gstd_db.conf file is located in the following directory
by default:
• On Windows: NMC_installation_directory\Management\lgto_gstdb
• On Aix and Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/lgto_gstdb
• On Solaris: /opt/LGTOnmc/lgto_gstdb
◆
Search for the following line that denotes a successful database conversion:
db_format_12=yes
If the Console server database conversion fails, a message similar to the following
appears during the conversion:
Install failed to upgrade the database <full path>. Check the install
log <full path> for details. Please fix any environment related errors
mentioned in the log and then run the script <full path to script>
manually to upgrade the database after the install is complete.
If this message is reported during the console database conversion:
1. Review the gstdbupgrade.log file and correct the errors.
The gstdbupgrade.log is located in the following directories by default:
• Solaris: /opt/LGTOnmc/logs
• AIX and Linux: /opt/lgtonmc/logs
• Windows: NMC_installation_directory\Management\GST\logs
2. Start the database conversion manually:
a. On UNIX:
gstdbupgrade.sh –p NMC_Database_dir -o log_file_directory –b
Backup_NMC_database_dir
where:
– gstdbupgrade.sh is located in the /opt/lgtonmc/sybasa/bin directory on AIX
and Linux by default
– gstdbupgrade.sh is located in the /opt/LGTOnmc/sybasa/bin directory on
Solaris by default.
– NMC_database_dir is the location of the Console server database. On Aix and
Linux the directory is /opt/lgtonmc/lgto_gstdb. On Solaris the directory is
/opt/LGTOnmc/lgto_gstdb.
– -o log_file_directory is optional. Use this option to direct the database
conversion log file to an alternate location.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
45
Updating from a previous release
– –b Backup_NMC_database_dir is optional. Use this option to specify an
alternate location or path for the backup copy of the original NMC database
that is being converted to the new format. By default the backup copy is stored
in the same location as the original database.
On UNIX, the Console server 8.0 software is installed successfully when a database
conversion fails.
b. On Windows, you were prompted to continue with the installation or cancel the
installation. After the errors in the gstdbupgrade.log file are corrected:
– If you cancelled the installation of the NetWorker and Console server software,
install the software again to convert the Console server database.
– If you completed the installation of the NetWorker and Console server software,
run gstdbupgrade.exe located in
NMC_installation_directory\Management\GST\sybasa\bin to manually convert
the database.
Task 12: For NetWorker 7.5.x Console server updates only, reconfigure LDAP
If Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) authentication was configured for a
NetWorker 7.5.x Console server, attempts to log in to the Console server after an update
fails with the error: Problem contacting server Servername: Connection refused:connect
and the EMC GST daemon will stop.
To determine if you have run into this issue, determine if the gstd process is running on
the Console server.
If the gstd process is not running:
1. From a command prompt change to the
NMC_installation_directory\management\logs directory on Windows or
NMC_installation_directory/management/logs directory on UNIX.
2. Render the gstd.raw log file and save the output to a text file.
For example:
nsr_render_log -pathmey gstd.raw 1>output.txt 2>&1
3. Review the output.txt file. If the error: acm: External directory library initialization
failed is present, reconfigure LDAP authentication to correct the issue.
To reconfigure LDAP authentication:
a. Move the following files from the NMC_installation_directory\gst\cst directory on
Windows or the NMC_installation_directory/cst on UNIX to a temporary location:
– Config.xml
– csp.clb
– csp.clb.bak
– csp.cred
– upgrade_cst.tag (if present)
46
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Updating from a previous release
b. Rename the Config.xml.template file to Config.xml. The Console server starts in
native authentication mode. Log in with the Administrator user and the password
that was defined before LDAP was configured.
If you do not remember this password:
a. Set the Environment Variable GST_RESET_PW to a value of 1.
b. Start the EMC GST service.
c. Connect to the Console server by using a browser.
d. Log in to the Console server with the administrator user name and the
password administrator. If prompted, create a new password for the
administrator user.
c. Reconfigure the Console server to use LDAP authentication. “An external
authentication authority” in the NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide describes
how to reconfigure LDAP authentication.
d. If set, delete the GST_RESET_PW environment variable. This step prevents the
password from being reset at each Console server login attempt.
Task 13: Clear the Java Cache
After a Console server software update, the gconsole.jnlp file in the Java Web Start cache
is different from the previous gconsole.jnlp file. As a result, the Console client fails to
launch the NMC GUI with the following error message:
Unable to launch NetWorker Management Console
To resolve this issue, clear the java cache on all machines that are used as a Console
client.
The procedure is different for UNIX and Windows:
Unix Console client
To clear the java cache on a UNIX Console client:
1. Run the Java Web Start program.
2. Run setenv or export HOME if it is not set.
3. Move or delete the $HOME/.java directory:
cd $HOME
mv .java .java_orig
4. Run the javaws -viewer command. This will:
• Create a new $HOME/.java directory
• Start the Java Cache Viewer.
5. Reconfigure Java Web Start preferences if necessary and exit the Java Cache Viewer.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide

Windows Console client
To clear the java cache on a Windows Console client:
1. Run the command javaws.exe -viewer to open the Java Cache Viewer.
2. In the Show menu, ensure that Applications is selected.
3. Delete the NetWorker Management Console entry.
4. Close the Java Cache Viewer window.
Task 14: Optional, convert VCB client back ups to VADP
A backup and recovery of VMware virtual clients that uses the vStorage APIs for Data
Protection (VADP) program is supported with the NetWorker 7.6 SP2 software and later.
Prior to NetWorker 7.6 SP2, virtual NetWorker clients were protected with VMware
Consolidated Backups (VCB) program.
After installing the NetWorker software on the NetWorker server and the VM Proxy server,
run the nsrvadpserv_tool command on the NetWorker server to convert virtual clients from
VCB to VADP backups. The NetWorker Release 8.0 VMware Integration Guide provides
more information.
Task 15: Install NetWorker Module software packages
If the NetWorker module software packages were removed prior to updating the NetWorker
software, re-install the NetWorker Module software packages. The appropriate module
install guide describes how to install the module software packages.
Task 16: Confirm all of the storage nodes are updated
The NetWorker 8.0 server does not support a NetWorker 7.6.x and earlier storage node.
Ensure that all NetWorker storage nodes are updated to the NetWorker 8.0 software.
“Determine the NetWorker version on the storage nodes” on page 35 describes how to
determine the NetWorker version running on all storage nodes in the datazone.
Task 17: Authorize the NetWorker server
The NetWorker software adds a required update enabler code to the NetWorker server
configuration database. This enabler code cannot be deleted. The update enabler code
expires 45 days after the NetWorker server update, unless capacity-based licensing is
used.
Contact EMC Licensing within 45 days of upgrading the NetWorker server to permanently
authorize the update enabler. The NetWorker 8.0 Licensing Guide describes how to
authorize an update enabler and how to use the capacity-based license model.
If the update enabler expires or the authorization code is not applied, the NetWorker
software will not function at the new release level.

Updating from a previous release
Prepare the Media Kit Location
During a client push operation, the NetWorker server obtains the source NetWorker
software packages from the software repository, located on the NetWorker server and
pushes the software installation to the target machine.
The software repository or Media Kit Location contains all of the source NetWorker 8.0
software packages that will be pushed to the NetWorker clients. The Media Kit Location
can be the NetWorker software DVD or a directory containing the software packages.
There are two different scenarios to consider when preparing the software repository to
update the NetWorker software using client push:
◆
“The NetWorker server is the same platform as the NetWorker clients and storage
nodes” on page 52
◆
“The NetWorker server is a different platform from the NetWorker clients and storage
nodes” on page 52
The NetWorker server is the same platform as the NetWorker clients and storage nodes
When the NetWorker clients are the same platform as the server, extract all of the software
packages to the Media Kit Location.
The NetWorker server is a different platform from the NetWorker clients and storage nodes
If the NetWorker clients are not the same platform as the NetWorker server, for example,
when a UNIX client is updated by a Windows NetWorker server, you must configure a proxy
host to store the cross platform packages. The directory on the proxy host that contains
the cross platform software packages is called the Proxy Media Kit Location. The directory
name cannot contain spaces.
Before choosing a proxy host, consider the following:
◆
The proxy host must run on the same platform as the cross platform packages.
For example, if the NetWorker server is a Linux machine and Windows x86, Windows
x64 and Windows ia64 clients are updated, use a Windows proxy host.
52
◆
The proxy host must have the NetWorker 7.6 or later client software installed.
◆
The proxy host must be a client of the NetWorker server.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Updating from a previous release
To prepare the proxy media kit location:
1. On the NetWorker server, extract all of the compressed software packages to the
Media Kit Location.
2. On the proxy host:
a. Create a directory for the Proxy Media Kit Location.
b. Extract a copy of the cross platform software packages to the Proxy Media Kit
Location.
For example:
If the NetWorker server is a Linux machine and Windows x86, Windows x64, and
Windows ia64 NetWorker clients require a software update, extract the Windows
x86, Windows x64, and Windows ia64 packages to the Proxy Media Kit Location.
c. Ensure that the Proxy Media Kit Location is accessible by the NetWorker server. For
example, if the proxy host is a Windows NetWorker client, ensure that the Proxy
Media Kit Location directory is a network accessible share.
Prepare the software repository and update the NetWorker software
There are two methods to access the client push feature:
◆
“Use the Software Administration Wizard” on page 53 describes how to use the GUI
interface to update the NetWorker software.

Task 1: Review products currently in the source package location
Review the list of products currently extracted to the source packages location. The
command to view the Windows and UNIX products differ:
◆
For UNIX software packages, run:
nsrpush -L -U -m media_kit_location
◆
For Windows software packages, run:
nsrpush -L -W -m media_kit_location
Task 2: Add products to the repository
Use the nsrpush command to add packages, one at time to the repository. The nsrpush
command differs when cross platform products are added to the repository.
a. To add same platform products to the repository:
– On UNIX, type:
nsrpush -a -p Product_Name -v version -P platform -U -m
media_kit_location
– On Windows, type:
nsrpush -a -p Product Name -v version -P platform -W -m
media_kit_location
b. To add cross-platform products to the repository:
– On UNIX, type:
nsrpush -a -p Product_Name -v versions -P platform -U -m
media_kit_location -c cross-platform client -C cross_platform_
_media_kit_location
For example, to add a 64-bit Solaris product to a UNIX server with the media kit
located in /tmp/prod, and at D:\temp\downloads on the cross-platform client
named unixhost, type:
nsrpush -a -p NetWorker -v 8.0 -P solaris_64 -U -m /tmp/prod -c
"unixhost" -C "D:\\temp\\downloads"
– On Windows, type:
nsrpush -a -p Product_Name -v versions -P platform -W -m
media_kit_location -c cross-platform_client -C
cross_platform_media_kit_location
For example, to add a 64-bit Solaris product to a Windows server with the
media kit located at D:\temp\downloads on the server, and at /tmp/prod on
the cross-platform client named solaris_host, type:
nsrpush -a -p NetWorker -v 8.0 -P solaris_64 -W -m
"D:\temp\downloads" -c "solaris_host" -C /tmp/prod
The nsrpush man page or running the nsrpush without specifying any options provides
more information.

Task 3: Inventory currently installed products
Use the nsrpush command to generate an inventory of the NetWorker software installed
on the target machines.
◆
To inventory specific clients configured on the NetWorker server, type:
nsrpush -i client_list
where client_list is a list of the clients to inventory, separated by spaces.
◆
To inventory all clients configured on the NetWorker server, type:
nsrpush -i -all
If the required software package for the client(s) selected have not been added to the
repository, the following message will appear:
No available products were found for the selected client(s) in the
software repository
“Task 1: Add the software to the repository” on page 53 provides information on how
to prepare the source product directory and add the required software packages to the
repository on the NetWorker server.
Task 4: Update client software packages
Use the nsrpush command to update all clients or selected clients of the NetWorker
server.
◆
To update all clients:
nsrpush -u -p product -v version -all
◆
To update selected clients:
nsrpush -u -p product -v version client_list
where:
• product is the name of the product to update.
• version is the version of the product to update.
• client_list is a list of the clients to inventory, separated by spaces.
For example:
To update two client machines, client1.emc.com and client2.emc.com to NetWorker
8.0, type:
nsrpush –u –p NetWorker –v 8.0 client1.emc.com client2.emc.com

NetWorker software installation on AIX
Before installing the NetWorker software, review the following sections:
◆
“Installation roadmap” on page 18
◆
“Software Requirements” on page 21
Complete these tasks to install the NetWorker software:
◆
“Task 1: Review the NetWorker software considerations for AIX” on page 62
◆
“Task 2: Consider the installation directory” on page 64
◆
“Task 3: Install the NetWorker software” on page 65
◆
“Task 4: Change the NetWorker servers with access to the machine” on page 67
◆
“Task 5: Start the NetWorker daemons” on page 68
Task 1: Review the NetWorker software considerations for AIX
This section describes the NetWorker software considerations for the AIX operating
system.
Before installing the NetWorker software, review the operating system and IPv4
considerations:
◆
“AIX 5.x considerations” on page 62
◆
“AIX 6.1 considerations” on page 63
◆
“IPV4 considerations” on page 63
AIX 5.x considerations
This section describes the NetWorker software considerations for AIX 5.x.
Starting in NetWorker 8.0 and later:
◆
The NetWorker server software is not supported on AIX 5.3. The NetWorker client and
storage node software is supported on an AIX 5.3 machine.
◆
The NetWorker software is not supported on AIX 5.2.
Before installing the NetWorker client or storage node software on AIX 5.3, review the
following considerations:
◆
A memory leak in an AIX operating system function used by NetWorker might cause
the memory footprint of the NetWorker daemons to grow indefinitely.
To prevent this issue, install service pack 5300-09 or later.
62
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
AIX Installation
◆
System limits and memory management issues might cause core dumps and
performance degradations during NetWorker operations.
To prevent these issues, install the recommended hot fix for your AIX Technology Level
(TL) package:
• AIX 5.3 TL08 — AIX APAR IZ69616
•
AIX 5.3 TL09 — AIX APAR IZ66710
•
AIX 5.3 TL10 — AIX APAR IZ66709
•
AIX 5.3 TL11 — AIX APAR IZ65427
AIX 6.1 considerations
This section describes the NetWorker software considerations for AIX 6.1.
System limits or memory management issues might cause core dumps and performance
degradation during NetWorker operations.
To prevent these issues on AIX 6.1 TL04, install the hot fix for AIX APAR IZ65501.
IPV4 considerations
The default behavior of the AIX name resolver is to lookup both the IPv4 and the IPv6
addresses for a host machine. If either address fails to resolve locally, the operating
system requests the address from the DNS server. If IPv6 addressing is not configured on
the AIX machine, the DNS server request will time out and return a failure message. If the
timeout wait time is long, some NetWorker commands might have a delayed response and
time out.
To prevent the time out of NetWorker commands, change the default name resolution
lookup behavior on the AIX machine. This ensures that IPv6 lookups are not attempted.
Three methods are used to configure the name resolution mechanism on AIX. Ensure all
three methods do not attempt IPv6 lookups:
◆
The NSORDER environment variable.
From a command prompt on the AIX machine, type:
env
If the NSORDER variable is not defined as NSORDER=local,bind4, type:
export NSORDER=local,bind4
◆
The /etc/irs.conf file.
Ensure the hosts entries are:
hosts local
hosts dns4
◆
The /etc/netsvc.conf file.
Ensure the hosts entry is:
hosts=local, bind4
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
63
AIX Installation
Task 2: Consider the installation directory
This section describes where the NetWorker software is installed on the target machine
and the disk space requirements.
The AIX installp utility is used to install the NetWorker software. This utility does not allow
you to change installation location of NetWorker binaries.
The NetWorker binaries are installed in the /usr/bin directory. If there is insufficient disk
space to install the NetWorker software, the AIX installp utility allocates more disk space,
to successfully complete the software installation.
The NetWorker configuration, log, and database files are located in the /nsr directory. To
change this location create a symbolic link from the new directory to the /nsr directory.
For example:
1. Create another nsr directory on a disk with sufficient space:
mkdir /disk2/nsr
2. Link the new directory to the /nsr directory:
ln -s /disk2/nsr /nsr
Before installing the NetWorker software, ensure that:
◆
The PATH variable for the root and user accounts contains the /usr/bin directory.
◆
There is sufficient disk space to install the NetWorker software. Table 4 on page 64
specifies the default location and space requirements for the NetWorker software.

General considerations
Before installing of the NetWorker software on HP-UX, review the following considerations:
1. Ensure that the kernel parameter maxfiles_lim is set to a minimum value of 8192.
2. Ensure that the nfile value is set appropriately, according to the following formula:
The nfile setting + (number of expected concurrent save times)
The minimum value for the number of expected concurrent save times is 50.
For example:
nfile = 1 X 50
76
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
HP-UX Installation
3. Ensure that the /etc/nsswitch.conf file contains an ipnodes policy:
ipnodes=files
If an ipnodes policy is not specified, the NetWorker daemons fail to start with the
following error message:
lgtolmd: Failed to resolve the IPv6 localhost address ::1. Please
verify an entry for the IPv6 localhost address exists in your
/etc/hosts file and an "ipnodes" policy has been added to your
/etc/nsswitch.conf file.
HP-UX 11iv3 considerations
Before installing the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11iv3, review the following
considerations:
◆
If stape is used on an HP-UX11iv3 NetWorker server or storage node, install patch
PHKL_36312 or later.
This will enhance tape device compatibility.
◆
For HP-UX NetWorker servers and storage nodes that are configured to use tape
devices, install PHKL_41474 or higher.
This is required for CDI support.
◆
If the /dev directory is backed up to a local HP-UX 11iv3 storage node, the backup
might fail, and the system might fail to respond.
To avoid this issue, implement one of these options:
• Do not back up the /dev directory.
• Do not specify ALL in the client Save Set attribute or use a directive to exclude the
/dev directory from the backup.
• Do not specify save sets that include the /dev directory in the backup.
• Use a remote storage node.
HP-UX 11iv2 requirements
Before installing the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11iv2, ensure that the PHSS_37500
and PHSS_39101 patches are installed on the machine.
HP-UX 11iv1 requirements
Before installing the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11iv1, ensure that the IPv6NCF11i
packages are installed on the machine.
If the IPv6NCF11i packages are not installed:
◆
NetWorker daemons might core dump.
◆
The error message: Unable to find library libipv6.sl might appear on the terminal
console.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide

are installed on the machine:
◆
QPK1123(B.11.23.0712.070a) 1185010 Quality Pack Depot
◆
PHSS_37492
Task 2: Consider the installation directory
The NetWorker binaries are installed in the /opt/networker/bin directory. The NetWorker
configuration, logs, and database files are located in the /nsr directory.
The location of the NetWorker binaries, configuration, log files and databases cannot be
changed.
Before installing the NetWorker software, ensure that the PATH variable for the root and
user account contains the /opt/networker/bin directory.
Task 3: Install the NetWorker software
Use the swinstall utility to install the NetWorker software on HP-UX 11.x or HP-UX 11i

Add the Scope:Link address to hosts file on SuSE 9.x when IPv6 is
configured
If the scope link address is not referenced in the /etc/hosts file on a SuSE 9 server with
IPv6 configured in either a single stack, or dual stack (IPv4/IPv6) environment, the
NetWorker processes might experience startup delays.
To avoid startup delays, add the Scope:Link address for the NIC in the /etc/hosts file:
1. Run ipconfig to discover the Scope:Link address for the NIC.
In this example, the host named geo1 has a network interface named eth0, which has
a Scope:Link address of fe80::2c0:4ff:fe68:c24/64:
geo1> ipconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:4F:68:C2:4F
inet addr:192.168.0.1 Bcast:10.5.163.255
Mask:255.255.254.0
inet6 addr: 3ffe:80c0:22c:74:2c0:4ff:fe68:c24/64
Scope:Global
inet6 addr: fe80::2c0:4ff:fe68:c24/64 Scope:Link
inet6 addr: 2001:abcd:0:1001:2c0:4ff:fe68:c24/64
.
.
2. Edit the /etc/hosts file, and add an entry for the Scope:Link address followed by
resolvable names for the NIC.
In this example, the FQDN name for geo1 is geo1.emc.com
# Scope:Link address
fe80::2c0:4ff:fe68:c24 geo1.emc.com geo1

To install the Networker software on Fedora:
1. Before installing the NetWorker software, manually install missing package
dependencies with the exception of libcap.so.1.
a. Attempt to install the NetWorker client package and identify the failed
dependencies.
For example:
# rpm -ivh lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/ksh is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libcap.so.1 is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2) is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2.2) is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
libXp.so.6 is needed by lgtoclnt-8.0-1.i686
The NetWorker software is not successfully installed.
b. Use the yum program to manually install the missing package dependencies.

◆
Back up this machine.
◆
Perform a directed recover to this machine.
To specify the NetWorker servers that are allowed to perform backups and directed
recoveries on this machine:
1. Shut down the NetWorker daemons:
nsr_shutdown
2. Edit or create the /nsr/res/servers file.
Specify the NetWorker servers, one per line, that require access to the machine.
Consider the following:
• When no servers are specified, any NetWorker server can back up this machine.
• When no servers are specified, any NetWorker server can perform a directed
recovery to the client.
• When adding NetWorker servers, specify both the short name and FQDN for each
NetWorker server.
• The first entry in this file becomes the default NetWorker server.

Task 5: Post Installation consideration for st tape devices
By default, the Linux kernel configures up to a maximum of 128 st tape devices. As a
result, the inquire command and Scan for Devices option in the NMC GUI, displays a
maximum of 128 st devices.
To resolve this issue, modify the st module of the Linux kernel and then recompile the
kernel. This increases the maximum number of allowable st devices created by the OS.
The Linux documentation describes about how to change the ST_MAX_TAPES definition
and perform a kernel reconfiguration, a kernel rebuild, and a kernel install.
Appendix E in the NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide provides additional information.
Task 6: Start the NetWorker daemons
Start the NetWorker daemons and confirm that they start successfully.
◆
To start the NetWorker daemons, type:
/etc/init.d/networker start
◆
To confirm that the NetWorker daemons started successfully, type:
ps -ef | grep nsr
“NetWorker daemons” on page 14 provides a list of the daemons that start for each
installation type.
If you did not stop the NetWorker daemons in Task 4, you must stop the NetWorker
daemons on the NetWorker server after an update to the NetWorker 8.0 software. This is
required to complete the update process.

NetWorker software package installation on Solaris
Before installing the NetWorker software, review the following sections:
◆
“Installation roadmap” on page 18
◆
“Software Requirements” on page 21
Complete these tasks to install the NetWorker software:
◆
“Task 1: Review the NetWorker software requirements and considerations for Solaris”
on page 110
◆
“Task 2: Consider the installation directory” on page 112
◆
“Task 3: Install the NetWorker packages” on page 114
Task 1: Review the NetWorker software requirements and considerations for Solaris
Before installing the NetWorker software packages on Solaris, review the software
requirements for Solaris 10 and the considerations for Solaris zone support:
◆
“Solaris 10 requirements” on page 110
◆
“Solaris zone considerations” on page 111
Solaris 10 requirements
Review the requirements for the NetWorker software on Solaris 10:
◆
Disable TCP Fusion on each Solaris 10 NetWorker server and Solaris 10 storage nodes.
To disable TCP Fusion:
a. Add the following line, to the /etc/system file:
set ip:do_tcp_fusion = 0
b. Restart the machine.
◆
If a storage node is configured in a Solaris 10 whole root zone, ensure that:
• All devices are in a single NetWorker datazone.
• All storage nodes are running Solaris 10 update 5 or later.
This provides shared SCSI command support.
The Configuring Tape Devices for EMC NetWorker Technical Note, available on the EMC
Online Support Site describes how to configure devices in a whole root zone.
◆
Install the operating system patches required for each architecture.
Before installing the required operating system patches, consider the following:
• Some Sun patches might have dependencies on other Sun patches. Ensure that all
dependencies are met before applying the patch.
• The Sun patches detailed below specify the patch version that first contained the
fix. Over time, these Sun patches might become obsolete and replaced with a
newer patch revision. In these instances, the latest patch revision should be
installed. The SunSolve web site provides detailed information about patch
dependencies and download information.
110
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Solaris Installation
Table 23 on page 111 provides a summary of architecture specific patch requirements.
Table 23 Solaris 10 Sun patch requirements
Architecture
Required Patch
Reason
x86/Sparc
• Sun patch 142900-03 or
later on Sparc.
• Sun patch 142901-03 or
later on x86.
To avoid shared memory corruption which can
cause possible hangs or failures of the
NetWorker daemons on a NetWorker server.
V240/Sparc
• Sun patch 119280-10 or
later on Sparc.
• Sun patch 119281-10 or
later on x86.
Required for nwrecover.
Z86/Sparc
• Sun patch 102712-01 or
later on Sparc.
• Sun patch 102711-01 or
later on x86.
Backups of large save sets may fail on Solaris
10 systems if an Intel Gigabit Ethernet card,
e1000g driver is used.
AMD 64
• Solaris 10 Encryption kit for
i386 architecture package,
which includes the
SUNWcryman, SUNWcry,
and SUNWcryr packages.
The default OpenSSL library on Solaris for AMD
64 does not support AES key lengths greater
than 128-bits. The NetWorker server requires
256-bit key lengths. When the default
OpenSSL library is used, the nsrd daemon on
the NetWorker server might fail to start.
Solaris zone considerations
The NetWorker software is supported in a global, a whole root, and a sparse root zone
configuration.
Before installing the NetWorker software in a Solaris zone, review the considerations for
each Solaris zone configuration:
◆
“Sparse root zone considerations” on page 111
◆
“Global zone considerations” on page 112
◆
“Whole root zone considerations” on page 112
Sparse root zone considerations
The NetWorker software supports sparse root zones on Solaris 10.
Consider the following:
◆
Only the NetWorker client software is supported in a sparse root zone.
◆
Install the NetWorker software packages in the global zone, before installing the
NetWorker client software package in each sparse root zone.
◆
Create a client instance for the global zone and each sparse root zone. The NetWorker
8.0 Administration Guide describes how to create a NetWorker client.
◆
Install the same version of the NetWorker software in the global zone and each sparse
root zone.
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
111
Solaris Installation
Global zone considerations
The NetWorker server, the storage node and the client software is supported in a Solaris
global zone.
Consider the following:
◆
When the NetWorker software package is installed in the global zone, special ALL save
sets are available to back up a global zone client. “Using the save set all to back up
particular file systems” in the NetWorker 8.0 Administration Guide describes when to
use the special ALL save sets.
◆
A Dedicated storage node is supported in a global zone.
Whole root zone considerations
The NetWorker server, the storage node, and the client software is supported in a Solaris
whole root zone.
Consider the following:
◆
When the NetWorker software is installed in a whole root zone, the NetWorker
software is not required in the global zone.
◆
The NetWorker server software is not supported in a clustered Solaris whole root zone.
◆
A Dedicated storage node is supported in a whole root zone.
Task 2: Consider the installation directory
This section describes where the NetWorker software is installed on the target machine
and the disk space requirements.
The NetWorker binaries are installed in the /usr/sbin directory and cannot be relocated.
The NetWorker configuration, logs, and database files are located in the /nsr directory. To
change this location, create a symbolic link from the new directory to the /nsr directory.
For example:
1. Create another directory, on a disk with sufficient space:
mkdir /disk2/nsr
2. Link this directory to the /nsr directory:
ln -s /disk2/nsr /nsr
112
EMC NetWorker Release 8.0 Installation Guide
Solaris Installation
Before installing the NetWorker software, ensure that:
◆
The PATH variable for the root and user accounts contains the /usr/sbin directory.
◆
There is sufficient disk space to install the NetWorker files in the default location.
Table 24 on page 113 specifies the default location and space requirements for the
NetWorker software on a Solaris host machine.

6. The installation prompts you to specify the NetWorker server that can access the
machine.
If the list requires updating, type y.
Consider the following:
• When no servers are specified, any NetWorker server can backup this machine.
• When no servers are specified, any NetWorker server can perform a directed
recovery to this machine.
• Specify the shortname and FQDN for each NetWorker server.
• The first name that is specified becomes the default NetWorker server for the
machine.
To modify the NetWorker server access list:
– Specify the name of the NetWorker server at the Enter a NetWorker server
hostname prompt.
– Type one NetWorker server name for each prompt.
– When all of the NetWorker servers are specified, press Enter without specifying
a NetWorker server name, to complete the process.
For example:
Enter a NetWorker server hostname [no more]: mynwserver
Enter a NetWorker server hostname [no more]: mynwserver.emc.com
Enter a NetWorker server hostname [no more]:
7. After the client package installation completes, additional packages are installed
automatically. It is not necessary to start the daemons after each package install:
• If the installation type is a NetWorker server, start the daemons when prompted
during the LGTOserv package installation.
• If the installation type is a NetWorker storage, start the daemons when prompted
during the LGTOnode package installation.
8. During a NetWorker server upgrade only, stop the NetWorker daemons and start them
again.
For example:
nsr_shutdown
/etc/init.d/networker start
9. To confirm that the NetWorker daemons started successfully, type:

Console server installation on Solaris
To manage the NetWorker server, install the Console server software on one machine in
the datazone.
“Task 1: Review the Console server considerations” on page 116
“Task 2: Install the Console server software” on page 117
Task 1: Review the Console server considerations
This section describes the Console server considerations.
Before installing the Console server package consider the following:
◆
The Console server software is supported on:
• Solaris x86 & AMD64: Solaris 10 & 11
• Solaris SPARC (64-bit): Solaris 10 & 11
The EMC Information Protection Software Compatibility Guide on the EMC Online
Support Site provides the most up to date information on supported Console server
operating systems.
◆
If a Solaris 10 Console server is also the NetWorker server, the nsrexecd daemon
might fail to restart with a socket binding error.
To resolve this issue, install patch 147440-04 or later for SPARC, or 147441-04 or later
for x86.
To determine if the patch is applied:
• On Solaris SPARC servers, type:
showrev -p | grep 147440
• On Solaris x86 servers, type:
showrev -p | grep 147441
◆
If the NetWorker client software is not installed on the target machine, the NetWorker
client software must be installed when the Console server software is installed.
◆
Ensure that there is sufficient disk space to install the Console server software files.
Table 25 on page 116 specifies the default location and space requirements for the
Console server software on a Solaris host machine.

15. To proceed with the installation of the Console server package, type y.
16. Update the MANPATH variable for the Console server man pages.
For example:
MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/LGTOnmc/man
export MANPATH
Use the Console client to connect to an Console server
A Console client is a system that connects to the Console server through a web browser to
display the Console server GUI.
A Solaris Console client:
◆
Requires JRE 1.6 or JRE 1.7.
◆
Does not require the NetWorker software.
◆
Supports the Mozilla 1.7 web browser on:
• Solaris 10 and 11
• Solaris x86 & AMD64
• Solaris SPARC 64-bit
If Firefox is used to access the Console server GUI:
1. Remove the classic plug in file libjavaplugin_oji.so located in the Firefox plug
ins directory and any associated symbolic links.
2. Create a symbolic link to the Java Plug in libnpjp2.so file in the Firefox plug ins
directory:
cd Firefox/plugins
ln -s JRE/lib/arch/libnpjp2.so .
where:
• Firefox is the Firefox installation path.
• JRE is the Java installation path.
• arch is the directory appropriate to the computer architecture.

• Starting with the NetWorker 8.0 and later software, Windows 2003 is only
supported as a NetWorker client.
The EMC Information Protection Software Compatibility Guide on the EMC Online
Support Site provides the most up to date information on supported operating
systems.
• The minimum recommended service pack version on Windows 2003 is SP2.
• Install the VSS roll up package.
This package prevents some VSS snapshot issues. Microsoft kb article 940349
provides detailed information.
• During parallel backups of a client, VSS backups might fail. Microsoft kb article
975928 provides detailed information.
• When VSS tracing is enabled on Windows 2003 backups might fail in some
situations. Microsoft kb article 951568 provides detailed information.
• Windows 2003 x64 servers require a Microsoft hot fix to support the backup and
restore of MSDE VSS writers. Microsoft kb article 913100 provides detailed
information.

Verifying the Installation
Test the Installation
This section describes how to verify that the NetWorker software can perform
management and backup tasks.
To test the software:
◆
“Task 1: Connect to the Console server console GUI for the first time” on page 148
◆
“Task 2: Add a NetWorker server to the NMC Enterprise” on page 150
◆
“Task 3: Configure a stand-alone device” on page 151
◆
“Task 4: Test the NetWorker software installation” on page 152
◆
“Task 5: Start the console client after the first time” on page 153
Task 1: Connect to the Console server console GUI for the first time
NetWorker server operations are managed in the Console server console, a Java web
based application. The machine used to connect to the NMC console, called the Console
client.
To connect to the NMC console for the first time:
1. If the Console server and the NetWorker server are on separate hosts, add the owner
of the gstd process and the NMC administrator user to the administrators list on the
NetWorker server.
This allows the NMC administrator user to administer and monitor the NetWorker
server.
This is not required when the Console server and the NetWorker server are the same
host. The owner of the gstd process and the NMC administrator user are automatically
added to the administrators list of the NetWorker server during the install.
To update the administrators list:
a. Log in to the NetWorker server as an administrator on Windows or as root on UNIX.
b. From a command prompt, use the nsraddadmin command to add the gstd process
owner to the administrators list of the NetWorker server.
By default, the process owner is the SYSTEM user on Windows and is the root user
on UNIX.
For example:
– On a Windows NetWorker server, type:
nsraddadmin -u "user=SYSTEM, host=console_host"
– On a UNIX NetWorker server, type:
nsraddadmin -u "user=root, host=console_host
c. Add the NMC administrator user to the administrators list on the NetWorker server:
nsraddadmin -u "user=administrator, host=console_host"
where console_host is the Console server hostname.

2. Ensure that the Temporary internet file caching attribute is enabled in the Java Control
Panel of the console client. If this option is not enabled in JRE, Java WebStart fails to
start.
For Windows console clients:
a. Navigate to Control Panel > Java > General > Temporary Internet Files > Settings
b. Select Keep temporary files on my computer.
For UNIX console clients:
a. Start the Java Web Start Application Manager, javaws.
b. Select Enable temporary internet file caching.
3. Ensure that the console processes gstd, dbsrv12 and httpd are running on the Console
server.
• For UNIX Console servers:
a. Confirm the daemons are started:
ps -ef | grep gstd
ps -ef | grep dbsrv12
ps -ef | grep httpd
On UNIX, there are two or more httpd processes running, the parent httpd
process run as root and the child process(es) that are run as the user name
specified during the installation.
b. Start the gstd daemon, if it is not started. This will also start the dbsrv12 and
httpd processes:
On Solaris and Linux: /etc/init.d/gst start
On AIX: /etc/rc.gst start
If the /etc/init.d/gst file on Linux or /etc/rc.gst file on AIX does not exist, ensure
the /opt/lgtonmc/bin/nmc_config script was run after the software
installation.
• For Windows Console servers:
a. In Task Manager, confirm the gstd, httpd, and dbsrv12 processes are running.
On Windows, httpd is registered as the EMC GST Web Service, and there are
always two httpd processes running when the console server is active.
b. Start the EMC GST Service service if the gstd process is not started.
This will also start the dbsrv12 and httpd processes.
“Unable to start gstd process on Console server” on page 156 provides more
information is the gstd process does not start.

Task 3: Recover the previous version of the Console server database
Restore the Console server database to a point-in-time prior to the Console server update
in one of the following ways:
◆
“Restore the database conversion backup files” on page 167
◆
“Recover the Console server database from a backup” on page 167
Restore the database conversion backup files
Before the Console server database conversion, a backup copy of the pre-NetWorker 8.0
Console server database files was created.
Use the backup copy of the Console server database files to restore the Console server to
the point-in-time prior to the update:
1. Stop the EMC gstd daemon.
2. In the Console server database directory, rename the current Console server database
files.
For example, rename:
lgto_gst.db to lgto_gst.db.old
gstd_db.conf to gstd_db.conf.old
lgto_gst.log to lgto_gst.log.old
By default, the Console database directory is:
• C:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\Management\lgto_gstdb on Windows
• opt/lgtonmc/lgto_gstdb on AIX and Linux
• /opt/LGTOnmc/lgto_gstdb on Solaris.
3. Rename the Console server database backup files in the Console data base directory.
For example, rename:
• gstd_db_bk.conf to gstd_db.conf
• lgto_gst_bk.db - to lgto_gst.db
• lgto_gst_bk.log to lgto_gst.log
4. Start the EMC gstd daemon.
Recover the Console server database from a backup
To recover the Console server database from a backup:
1. From a command prompt on the Console server, type:
recoverpsm -s NetWorker_server -t date -f
where:
• NetWorker_server specifies the name of the NetWorker server that performed the
Console server database backup.
• date specifies a date when the Console server was backed up prior to the upgrade.
