Netbackup 7.5 client install on Redhat 5.8

Netbackup 7.5 client install on Redhat 5.8

I'm trying to install netbackup client 7.5 on a redhat 5.8 server which already has nb client 7.0 installed on it.

I have the the 3 client s/w zip files which I've combined and unzipped/untarred - NetBackup_7.5_CLIENTS.

When I run the install script it comes up with a menu with a selection of operating systems where I choose Linux and then it appears to be saving a bunch of binaries and then it gives this output -

Checking LiveUpdate registration for the following products: NB
This may take a few minutes.

Nothing to update in registration.

It then exits, the upgrade does not seem to have worked as /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/version still shows 7.0.

The install works on redhat 6.8 where the menu prompting for os type never appears.

Any ideas ?

RE: Netbackup 7.5 client install on Redhat 5.8

Found the answer by googling. Had to delete /usr/openv and reinstall, apparently the problem was caused by an earlier attempt by someone to install netbackup server on this host.

RE: Netbackup 7.5 client install on Redhat 5.8

Didn't you just try to upgrade the client from the master? Is your master server Windows based or Unix based?

RE: Netbackup 7.5 client install on Redhat 5.8

The master is Windows and the netbackup admin is not very knowledgeable so I took the easy way out.
