Backup of any Unix server via Linux/MAC DS-Client using Unix-SSH backup sets.
Backup of Solaris servers via Linux /MAC DS-Client using Unix-SSH backup sets. When the Unix-SSH backup set is created, provide username and password and "su" to root and root password.
SSH Backup Sets may experience backup failures if the perl/python binary cannot be located using the path environment variable. In previous versions of the software, the DS-Client searched by default for the Perl path in several standard locations. The search for Perl/Python binaries is not performed starting with v.6.2 SP1.
a) The sudo is not found on source computer.
b) the csh or tcsh is used on the source computer, shells that are not supported
Starting with v.6.2 Service Pack 1, this search is not performed (Perl/Python are executed directly) and if the path environment variable is not configured, the SSH backup activities will fail. If you experience such failures, the user has 2 options: - add Perl/Python in the default search path on the target computer (check that "ssh -l perl" works from the DS-Client machine) or - configure the Perl's/Python's full path on the target machine in the backup set's "Advanced Connection" dialog -> "Interpreter/Program path" option.
a) Identify the path to sudo: - Run the command which sudo - Create a soft link to the path returned by the command above( e.g. to /usr/local/bin): sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/sudo /usr/bin
b) use sh
