Does Networker has Installation automation function ?

Hi, All

I have a question about networker

 

Client has 3,000 Physical Servers(Linux) to Backup

So, Client Request Installation automation Function

Can Networker do that by Scripts?

 

If you have any experience, please share it.

 

Thanks & Best Regards

Isn't really a Networker related question but more a question about how to actually do automatic deployment of any package?

As it is Linux, then using yum or rpm would be the way forward, wouldn't it? I prefer yum as it allows also to install other required packages as well. But also depends on the Linux distro's being used?

https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/en-us/networker/nw_p_installation_guide_19.9/installing-the-networker-client-software?guid=guid-62aad394-a4b4-49f3-bcc6-2ea8e817856b&lang=en-us

So any automation tool would need to run the required packages. Once a NW client software is installed and it is defined as a client in a backup server environment, one can use nsrpush (via NW NMC or via nsrpush cli) to upgrade the clients. Depending on the NW version involved, nowadays also more is possible when NW modules are involved as well.

@SSJEON , fresh installation of NetWorker client cannot be dont via NetWorker you can use software distribution tools like SSMS, Ansible work great as well. This might help - https://crazyrov.com/prod/articles/articles_networker_client_install_ansible.php
