System Requirements
Supported platforms
Before You Install Data Protector Express
Installing Data Protector Express
Upgrading Data Protector Express
System Requirements
Most operating systems list both minimum and recommended system requirements. As a general rule,
if your system meets the minimum requirements for the operating system, it will also meet the minimum
system requirements for Data Protector Express.
Depending on your specific requirements, your system should also meet the following:
• The Data Protector Express Catalog requires additional space. When you install Data Protector
Express on the machine that will serve as the Backup Server, HP recommends that you select a hard
drive other than the default drive. A disk drive with at least an additional 20 GB is recommended.
• VGA display with 1024x768 resolution, for use with Windows or an X Window System
• CD drive for Data Protector Express installation (recommended)
• CD or DVD writer for use with the Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster Recovery
(recommended)
• Bootable tape backup device for use with Data Protector Express Bare Metal Disaster Recovery
(optional)
Supported platforms
Data Protector Express is supported and has been tested with many different versions
of Windows and Linux operating systems. For a current list of supported platforms, visit
http://www.hp.com/go/dataprotectorexpress.
NOTE:
We always recommend that you install the latest service packs and updates for your operating system.
Before You Install Data Protector Express
Even though Data Protector Express is easy to install, you must first make some important decisions
about how to implement Data Protector Express. Before you install Data Protector Express, you should
consider the following subjects.
Data Protector Express Backup Domain
When you install Data Protector Express, you will define a Data Protector Express Backup Domain. Each
Backup Domain includes one Backup Server — a computer that contains the Data Protector Express
catalog. Each Data Protector Express Backup Server may also include other computers, including Media
Servers and clients.
Installation Guide
7
On a very small Backup Domain, all three components (Backup Server, Media Server, and client) can be
on the same machine.
Since Data Protector Express is scalable, you can easily upgrade your license whenever you need to
expand the Data Protector Express Backup Domain.
To define the Backup Domain, identify:
• The computer that will be the Backup Server.
• The Media Servers that will belong to the Backup Server.
• The clients that will belong to the Backup Domain.
Data Protector Express Service
The Data Protector Express service lets you run scheduled jobs automatically, whether or not an operator
is present. The Data Protector Express service is called a service on Windows and a daemon on Linux
systems.
When installed, the Data Protector Express service automatically loads at system startup. It runs in the
background without a user interface. At any time, you can start the Data Protector Express user interface.
Later, when you close the Data Protector Express user interface, the Data Protector Express service
continues to run in the background.
If the system loses power, the Data Protector Express service automatically restarts following system restart.
Therefore, your backup jobs still run as scheduled.
You must install Data Protector Express on each computer that will be included in an automatic backup
schedule.
For information on configuring and using the Data Protector Express service, refer to the Data Protector
Express User Guide.pdf.
Installing Data Protector Express
1.
Install all of your backup devices according to the manufacturer’s directions
2. Install Data Protector Express on the Backup Server machine.
3. Install Data Protector Express on the remaining Media Servers and clients in the Backup Domain.
Supply the hostname or IP address of the Backup Server when installing the clients.
Upgrading Data Protector Express
1.
Upgrade Data Protector Express on the Backup Server.
2. Each client in the Backup Domain will upgrade itself automatically.
NOTE:
There is a Backup Domain configuration setting to disable automatic updates that is on by default. If you
turn this option off you will need to manually update each client. Clients running older versions of Data
Protector Express will not operate with a Backup Server running a newer version.

Post Installation Settings
4 Installation Notes
Linux Installation Notes
SCSI generic module required for device support
If you are running Data Protector Express under Linux, you must install the sg (SCSI generic) module for
device support in Data Protector Express.
To verify that this module is loaded and running, issue the following command at a terminal prompt:
lsmod
sg should be listed in the list of running modules. If it is not listed, you must manually load this module
so that Data Protector Express can communicate with tape devices. Consult your operating system
documentation for instructions on manually loading the sg module.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux EXT3 hardware issue
If you are running Data Protector Express on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) v3 or v4, a known hardware
issue exists when you use the EXT3 journal or file system on certain hardware configurations. Update
your Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3 or v4 installation to the latest kernel and jbd patches listed below to
resolve this issue:
• jbd-1.1-multiarch-1
• kernel-2.6.9-11.EL (RHEL 4)
• kernel-2.4.21-37.EL (RHEL 3)
IDE/ATAPI Support
Data Protector Express supports the use of IDE/ATAPI tape devices. If your Linux distribution compiled
the ide-tape.o module into the kernel, update the configuration file and verify the configuration to
access these devices.
NOTE:
When Data Protector Express runs, it loads the ide-scsi module. This may cause the ide-cdrom module
to fail to load, which may affect CD operation. To work around this problem, mount the CD as a SCSI
device, even though it is an IDE device.
To update the configuration file and verify the configuration (LILO)
1.
Add the following line to the end of each boot selection section in the /etc/lilo.conf file:
Installation Guide
13
Master on primary IDE
append="hda=ide-scsi"
Slave on primary IDE
append="hdb=ide-scsi"
Master on secondary IDE
append="hdc=ide-scsi"
Slave on secondary IDE
append="hdd=ide-scsi"
2. Update your system configuration, using the following command:
lilo
3. Save the file and reboot your system.
4. Verify that the change has been implemented, using the following command:
cat /proc/cmdline
5.
If hda=ide-scsi (or similar) does not appear, you did not update the configuration file correctly.
Start over with Step 1 above.
6. Verify that your system detects the tape device, using the following command:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
To update the configuration file and verify the configuration (GRUB)
1.
Locate the grub.conf file. This file may also be called menu.lst. Possible locations include
/boot/grub and /etc.
2. Add the appropriate text from the following to the end of each kernel image line in the grub.conf
file:
Master on primary IDE
hda=ide-scsi
Slave on primary IDE
hdb=ide-scsi
Master on secondary IDE
hdc=ide-scsi
Slave on secondary IDE
hdd=ide-scsi
Each kernel image line will read similar to the following:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.2.6-2 ro root=/dev/hda3 hda=ide-scsi
3. Save the file and reboot your system.
4. Verify that the change has been implemented, using the following command:
14
Installation Notes
cat /proc/cmdline
5.
If hda=ide-scsi (or similar) does not appear, you did not update the configuration file correctly.
Start over with step 1 above.
6. Verify that your system detects the tape device, using the following command:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Libraries missing from Linux distribution
Problem:
I cannot launch the X Window System version of Data Protector Express. It gives me the following
message:
error while loading shared libraries libstdc++.so.5
Cause: Either the libstdc++ library is missing from your version of Linux distribution or the wrong version
of the library is installed.
Solution: Install the missing library.
1.
Identify the required version of the library:
a. Navigate to the Data Protector Express directory in a terminal window. The default directory
is /usr/local/hp/dpx.
b. Type lld dpadmin.bin from the command prompt and press Enter. A list of libraries
required for Data Protector Express appears.
The name of the missing libstdc++ library will be similar to libstdc++.so.5.
2. Contact your Linux distributor for the missing library.
NOTE:
If you are using RedHat Linux EL 4, you can use an RPM package called "compat-libstdc++.rpm"
to install the necessary library.
3. Install the library according to the documentation provided by your distributor.
4. Try to launch the X Window System version of Data Protector Express. It should work properly.
