Miscellaneous

The File System iDataAgent will be automatically installed during installation of this software, if it is not already installed. For System Requirements and install information specific to the File System iDataAgents, refer to:

The operating system must have been installed with at least the user level software option selected.

SELinux

If you have SELinux enabled on the client computer, create the SELinux policy module as a root user before performing a backup. The SELinux Development package must be installed on the client.

To create an SELinux policy module, perform the following steps as user "root":

  1. Create the following files in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory:
File Name Content of the File
<directory>/<file_name>.te

where:

<directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

<file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.te

 

The content of the file should be as follows:

policy_module(<name>,<version>)

##############################

where:

<name> is the name of the policy module. You can give any unique name to the policy module, such as a process or application name.

<version> is the version of the policy module. It can be any number, such as 1.0.0.

For Example: While creating a policy module for the backup_IDA application, you can use the following content.

policy_module(backup_IDA,1.0.0)

<directory>/<file_name>.fc

where:

<directory> is /usr/share/selinux/devel

<file_name> is the name of the UNIX file, created to save the policy module statement. It is a good idea to use the same name for policy module and the file.

For example: When you are creating a policy module for backup_IDA application, you can use the following file name: backup_IDA.fc

 

The content of the file should be as follows:

Note that the following list of files is not exhaustive. If the process fails to launch, check /var/log/messages. Also, if required, add it to the following list of files.

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCTreeWrapper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libCVMAGuiImplgso -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2locale.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2osse.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDb2Sbt.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libdb2trcapi.so.1 -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libDrDatabase.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libIndexing.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

/opt/<software installation directory>/Base/libSnooper.so -- gen_context(system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t,s0)

 

  1. Create the policy file from command line. Use the following command. Ensure that you give the following commands in the /usr/share/selinux/devel directory.

[root]# make backup_IDA.pp

Compiling targeted backup_IDA module

/usr/bin/checkmodule: loading policy configuration from tmp/backup_IDA.tmp

/usr/bin/checkmodule: policy configuration loaded

/usr/bin/checkmodule: writing binary representation (version 6) to tmp/backup_IDA.mod

Creating targeted backup_IDA.pp policy package

rm tmp/backup_IDA.mod tmp/backup_IDA.mod.fc

[root]# semodule -i backup_IDA.pp

[root]#

  1. Execute the policy module. Use the following command:

[root]# restorecon -R /opt/<software installation directory>

SELinux is now configured to work with this application.

.NET Framework

.NET Framework 4.0 is automatically installed. Note that .NET Framework 4.0 can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++

The following Redistributable Packages are installed automatically. Multiple versions of the package can be installed on the same computer.
