and a media server to avoid unwanted client upgrades.For clustered environments, you can push client software only from the active node.During a client upgrade, the new client files are written to a directory in/tmpon theclient. This directory must have sufficient space to temporarily store the new clientfiles to ensure a successful upgrade. If sufficient space is not available, a statusmessage informs you that the upgrade script could not write to the location in the/tmpdirectory. To resolve this issue, allocate more space to the/tmpdirectory andperform the upgrade procedure again. The temporary directory is removed whenthe upgrade is complete.To upgrade clients after you have upgraded servers1Use one of the following methods to start the installation script:■Insert the NetBackup UNIX Clients DVD into thedrive.See“About the NetBackup media kit”on page 16.■If necessary, mount the DVD.See“Mounting NetBackup software media on UNIXor Linux systems”on page 37.■Enter the following command:cd_directory/installThecd_directoryis the path to the directory whereyou can access the DVD.DVD115Installing NetBackup client softwareAbout NetBackup client installation on UNIX/Linux
