How to install CA ArcServe Backup r15 Linux Agent on Ubuntu

That was quite a trick! It appeared that CA support do not support Ubuntu Linux! This is amazing – one of the most popular Linux flavours and one of the best supported Linux flavours on VMWare and they do not support it!

Ok, here is how to make it working:

Run setup as advised by their manual  -> mount DVD and run ./install from Linux folder (or tar the whole folder and move it across to your Linux host and run it from there – this is what I had to; be careful, it is quite bulky – about 600Mb). Ignore all warnings (it does not work properly but it’s ok – at least the script copies all files for you).

Then replace “!/bin/sh” in all scripts under /opt/CA with “!/bin/bash”. Then install getlibs package from here http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/ (dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb)

Comment out with “#” string “ENV       LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.18” in the agent.cfg.

Then run ./opt/CA/ABuagent/uagentsetup and that’s it – you are done! It should be up and running after this.

    Hy tobyg,

    Thanks, happy to read a few about arcserve and modern deb linux…

    Follow the tuto. but il did not change nothing

    uagent status only reports :
    “CA ARCserve Backup Client Agent is enabled but stopped”

    with another stange info :
    /opt/CA/ABcmagt/caagent: line 271: /opt/CA/ABcmagt/caagentd: no file or folder …

    but /opt/CA/ABcmagt/caagentd does exist

    Did you manage with this ?

      Yes. On Debian 6 (amd64). I resolved problem via:

      apt-get install libc6-i386

      – adding file /etc/ld.so.conf.d/CA.conf with definition to installed client libraries (one line):

      /opt/CA/ABuagent

      – and restart backup client:

      /etc/init.d/bab_agent stop|start
