Running NetWorker 8.1. NetWorker Server is on Linux. NMC is on Windows. Trying to setup ability to push WIN update packages. Places WIN_x86 and WIN_x64 in /nsr/NW on NetWorker Server.
Using Software Administration Wizard:
- Add software products to the repository
- Media Kit Location /nsr/NW
- Select Products - shows 2 windows media kits, select win_x86
- Host Name networkercos (Windows Server 2008 R2 where NMC is running)
- Media Kit Location C:\NW (has administration read/write permissions) (C:\Windows/Temp also has administration read/write permissions)
Get Message box:
Repository Operation Failed
Failure adding product from:
Error creating savestream on remote host
nsrcpd.raw log shows:
BTW, updating the Linux repository with a Linux distribution works fine.
The old story...
NW adds the software to the repository via a 'save' process. This implies that the Windows software packages must be transfered from a Windows client. The repository can be on any host.
Thanks for the quick reply.
If I understand what you are saying, I need to have a NetWorker Server installed on Windows, with a repository cdpb in order to update the repository on another Windows box? I guess the same is true in reverse, I would need a Linux NetWorker server in order to update the repository on a Linux server?
So, in a mixed environment (Linux/Windows) I need 2 NetWorker Servers?
No - of course one repository can keep all software packages. No matter of which OS type.
But to add SW to the repository, it must be added from a client of the same OS type family.
Came across a similar error, solution was to provide complete set of binaries instead of just client binaries from the setup extract. Though the error was deceptive.
