Solaris Client Installation Guide

Download the Solaris installer,

  • For Intel Solaris, Sun Solaris and Later: _4_4_0_SP_Solaris_Client_Only.zip

The Solaris builds are pre-compiled and all the required dependencies are included in the build itself. You don't have to install the dependencies separately.

The libstdc++.so.5 is a run time compilation library required for Application to run in the machine. The similar or higher version of library(libstdc++.so.5/libstdc++.so.6) might be already installed in the Solaris machine. If this is the case, then you have to create a link of the library by executing the following command

ln /usr/sfw/lib/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5

Note: Solaris installation should be run with the root user privileges.

To install client on Solaris machines, follow the steps given below:

  1. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file.

  2. Execute the bin file after going to the location where the files are zipped

    • ./_4_4_0_SP_Solaris_Client_Only.bin

    needs root user privileges. Hence if is installed as a user which does not have root privileges, the installation will abort with the message 'You need root user privileges'. This is applicable for upgrades as well.

  3. The first step in the installation is to choose the type of installation. You can select from one of the two options :

    • You can install in a newly created user account, where the user account will be automatically created with root privileges

    • You can install in the current user account.

    Choose option 1, if you want to backup user data, MySQL, System Files etc. Note that will be installed as a daemon process and will automatically start when the system boots up. You can START and STOP by running the command "/etc/init.d/ start/stop". You can check the status of application by running the command "/etc/init.d/ status".

    Choose option 2, if you want to be installed as an application to backup only the system files and folders. Note that will be installed in the current user directory and has to be manually started every time the machine is rebooted. You can START and STOP by running the script start.sh and stop.sh

  4. If is installed fresh and you chose option 1 in the above step, then you will be asked to provide a password for the user account which is created. Note that will be installed as a daemon process and will automatically start when the system boots up. You can START and STOP by running the command "/etc/init.d/ start/stop". You can check the status of application by running the command "/etc/init.d/ status".

    If you chose option 2, then you will be taken to the next step directly. Note that will be installed in the current user directory and has to be manually started every time the machine is rebooted. You can START and STOP by running the script start.sh and stop.sh

  5. License Agreement:

    Read through the License Agreement carefully. If you agree, enter Yes to continue with the installation. If you do not agree, enter No to abort the installation.

  6. Install Location:

    If you had chosen option 2 for the type of installation, will ask for a location to install . By default will be installed in the "Current Directory". setup will be installed under "" in the "Current Directory" directory. To install in a different directory, enter the absolute path (full path) for installation. Note that the setup will create the "" directory under the directory you entered.

  7. Note : If is already in the installed location, will try to upgrade. The installation will ask the user whether the previous setup can be migrated or not. Enter 'yes' to continue upgradation and 'no' to abort the installation.

    can be upgraded to v4.2 from version 4.0 and 4.1

  8. Assign A ID:

    ID is the unique name with which your installation is identified. By default, it takes your machine name as the ID. But we recommend giving a globally unique ID. Here you will be provided with these options:

    • "Do you want to identify your machine name by other than hostname"

    • If you enter "y/Y" then following text will displayed in terminal to enter ID.

    • "Enter ID"

    • Enter the ID for your installation. We recommend using your email id for this.

    Note : The ID value is case insensitive. Hence, the ' ID' you have entered will be automatically converted to lower case.

  9. Web Console Authentication:

    's Web Console user interface is browser based; you need to configure a username and password to login to Web Console. Note that you can add additional users, delete users, change password etc. from the Web Console UI after the installation.

  10. Configure Backup Server Port and UI Communication Port

    By default uses the ' Backup Server Port' 32004, for all the client-server communications and the 'UI Communication Port' 32005 for communication between the Web Console and the Application. If you wish to use ports other than the default, you are provided with the following options here :

    • "Do you want to change these ports from default value?"

    • If you enter "y/Y" then following text will displayed in terminal to enter 's Backup Server Port and the UI Communication Port.
