CA ARCSERVE BACKUP FOR WINDOWS COMMON: 16.0
CA ARCSERVE CLIENT FOR WINDOWS COMMON: 16.0
This document aims in assisting users in installing CA ARCserve Backup R.16.0 on a Windows 2008 Server Core.
Pre-requisites for setup:
- Make sure that the following ports are open before installing CA ARCserve backup on a Windows 2008 Core server.
Port Number Protocol Usage 445 TCP Microsoft RPC Services 6050 TCP and UDP NTAgent - Backup Server Communication
You can achieve this by executing the following commands on the Windows 2008 Core Server
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name='MS_RPC' protocol=tcp localport=445 dir=in action=allow
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name='NTAgent_UDP' protocol=udp localport=6050 dir=in action=allow
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name='NTAgent_TCP' protocol=tcp localport=6050 dir=in action=allow
- By default Windows 2008 Sever Core disables the incoming ICMP packets, so you would not be able to ping the Core Server from any remote machine. You can enable ping replies by executing the following command
netsh firewall set icmpsetting 8
Installation can be executed by 3 different methods
- Local Install
- Remote Install
- Silent Install
Insert the DVD and run the setup by executing setup.exe from the command prompt and follow the instructions.
- Can be triggered from any remote machine which is connected to the Windows 2008 Core Server.
- Insert the DVD on the remote machine and run the installation wizard, select Remote Install and add the 2008 core server and continue with the installation
- The ICF (response) file can't be created on the 2008 core server, so run the silent install on any other machine to generate setup.icf.
- The ICF file should reside in a location accessible by the 2008 core server.
- On the core server, start the silent installation by executing the mastersetup.exe with the following switches. Mastersetup.exe is located in the Install folder on the DVD drive.
In the above given example,
