2. Unpack the install file to /usr/local/obm

mkdir /usr/local/obm

cd /usr/local/obm

2. Unpack the install file to /usr/local/obm

 

mkdir /usr/local/obm

cd /usr/local/obm

gunzip obm-nix.tar.gz

tar -xf obm-nix.tar

 

3. Remove bundled jvm

 

rm -rf /usr/local/obm/jvm

 

4. Install J2SE Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.x or later to /usr/java

 

5. Create a symbolic link for JRE

ln -s /usr/java /usr/local/obm/jvm

 

6. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable

 

JAVA_HOME=/usr/java; export JAVA_HOME

 

7. Install AhsayOBM

 

./bin/install.sh >install.log

 

All installation information can be found in the file "install.log"

 

The backup scheduler and autoupgrade services are automatically installed. Backup sets can now run at their scheduled times automatically. *

 

8. Please go to X Window or command line mode to continue installation.

Get started - BSD:

1. Download the setup file above.

2. Unpack the install file to /usr/local/obm

mkdir /usr/local/obm

cd /usr/local/obm

gunzip obm-nix.tar.gz

tar -xf obm-nix.tar

 

3. Remove bundled jvm

rm -rf /usr/local/obm/jvm

 

4. Download J2SE Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.x or later

 

Depending on your platform and BSD release, download the corresponding JRE and dependant packages.

For example, we are using FreeBSD 6.1 i386 for installation:

 

Download javavmwrapper-2.3.tbz and diablo-jre-freebsd5.i386.1.5.0.07.01.tbz in the following links.

 

http://www.freebsd-fr.org/ports/java.html#javavmwrapper-2.3

http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml

http://www.freebsd.org/ports/java.html#diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01_3  (See package dependancy of your machine)

 

5. Install J2SE Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.x or later to /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0

Use following command to install package

pkg_add javavmwrapper-2.3.tbz

pkg_add diablo-jre-freebsd5.i386.1.5.0.07.01.tbz

 

6. Create a symbolic link for JRE

 

ln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0 /usr/local/obm/jvm

 

If you are using csh as your shell, you need to type "rehash" and hit enter to make the symbolic link take effect. For other shell types it should work.

 

setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/obm/jvm

 

7. Verify the installed JRE

$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version

 

See if the output does not contain warning

 

With warning

 

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM warning: Can't detect initial thread stack location java version "1.4.2_12"

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_12-b03)

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build diablo-1.5.0-b01)

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build diablo-1.5.0_07-b01, mixed mode)

 

8. Install OurOBM

 

./bin/install.sh >install.log

 

All installation information can be found in the file "install.log" *

 

9. Install the backup scheduler and autoupgrade services
