Download the Linux installer,

  • For RedHat Linux 8.0, 9.0 and Later, RedHat EL 4 and Later, CentOS 4 and Later, Fedora Core 3 and Later, SuSE Linux 9.x and Later: GIGA-backup_4_0_0_RH_Client_Only.zip

  • For Mandrake Linux 10.0 and Later: GIGA-backup_4_0_0_MDK_Client_Only.zip

The Linux builds are pre-compiled and all the required dependencies are included in the build itself. You don't have to install the dependencies separately.

The libstdc++.so.5 is a run time compilation library required for Giga Backup StoreGrid Application to run in the machine. This library can be downloaded and installed from http://gcc.gnu.org/libstdc++/

Note: Linux installation should be run with the root user privileges.

To install Giga Backup StoreGrid client on Linux machines, follow the steps given below:

Note : If Giga Backup StoreGrid is already in the installed location, Giga Backup StoreGrid will try to upgrade. The installation will ask the user whether the previous setup can be migrated or not. Enter 'yes' to continue upgradation and 'no' to abort the installation.

  1. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file.

  2. Execute the bin file

    • For RedHat Linux 8.0, 9.0 and Later, RedHat EL 4 and Later, CentOS 4 and Later, Fedora Core 3 and Later, SuSE Linux 9.x and Later:./GIGA-backup_4_0_0_RH_Client_Only.bin

    • For Debian Linux 4.0 and Later, Gentoo, Ubuntu 7.10 and Later : ./GIGA-backup_4_0_0_DBN_Client_Only.bin

    • For Mandrake Linux 10.0 and Later: ./GIGA-backup_4_0_0_MDK_Client_Only.bin

    Giga Backup StoreGrid needs root user privileges. Hence if Giga Backup StoreGrid is installed as a user which does not have root privileges, the installation will abort with the message 'You need root user privileges'. This is applicable for upgrades as well.

  3. The first step in the installation is to choose the type of installation. You can select from one of the two options :

    • You can install Giga Backup StoreGrid in a newly created Giga Backup StoreGrid user account, where the Giga Backup StoreGrid user account will be automatically created with root privileges

    • You can install Giga Backup StoreGrid in the current user account.

    Choose option 1, if you want Giga Backup StoreGrid to backup user data, MySQL, System Files etc. Note that Giga Backup StoreGrid will be installed as a daemon process and will automatically start when the system boots up. You can START and STOP Giga Backup StoreGrid by running the command "/etc/init.d//etc/init.d/storegrid start/stop". You can check the status of Giga Backup StoreGrid application by running the command "/etc/init.d//etc/init.d/storegrid status".

    Choose option 2, if you want Giga Backup StoreGrid to be installed as an application to backup only the system files and folders. Note that Giga Backup StoreGrid will be installed in the current user directory and has to be manually started every time the machine is rebooted. You can START and STOP Giga Backup StoreGrid by running the script startVembuStoreGrid.sh and stopVembuStoreGrid.sh

  4. If Giga Backup StoreGrid is installed fresh and you chose option 1 in the above step, then you will be asked to provide a password for the Giga Backup StoreGrid user account which is created. Note that Giga Backup StoreGrid will be installed as a daemon process and will automatically start when the system boots up. You can START and STOP Giga Backup StoreGrid by running the command "/etc/init.d//etc/init.d/storegrid start/stop". You can check the status of Giga Backup StoreGrid application by running the command "/etc/init.d//etc/init.d/storegrid status".

    If you chose option 2, then you will be taken to the next step directly. Note that Giga Backup StoreGrid will be installed in the current user directory and has to be manually started every time the machine is rebooted. You can START and STOP Giga Backup StoreGrid by running the script startVembuStoreGrid.sh and stopVembuStoreGrid.sh

  5. Giga Backup StoreGrid License Agreement:

    Read through the License Agreement carefully. If you agree, enter Yes to continue with the installation. If you do not agree, enter No to abort the installation.

  6. Giga Backup StoreGrid Install Location:

    If you had chosen option 2 for the type of installation, Giga Backup StoreGrid will ask for a location to install Giga Backup StoreGrid. By default StoreGrid will be installed in the "Current Directory". Giga Backup StoreGrid setup will be installed under "Vembu/StoreGrid" in the "Current Directory" directory. To install in a different directory, enter the absolute path (full path) for Giga Backup StoreGrid installation. Note that the setup will create the "Vembu/StoreGrid" directory under the directory you entered.

  7. Assign A StoreGrid ID:

    StoreGrid ID is the unique name with which your Giga Backup StoreGrid installation is identified. By default, it takes your machine name as the StoreGrid ID. But we recommend giving a globally unique ID. Here you will be provided with these options:

    • "Do you want to identify your machine name by other than hostname"

    • If you enter "y/Y" then following text will displayed in terminal to enter StoreGrid ID.

    • "Enter StoreGrid ID"

    • Enter the StoreGrid ID for your installation. We recommend using your email id for this.

    Note : The StoreGrid ID value is case insensitive. Hence, the 'StoreGrid ID' you have entered will be automatically converted to lower case.

  8. Giga Backup StoreGrid Web Console Authentication:

    Giga Backup StoreGrid's Web Console user interface is browser based; you need to configure a username and password to login to Giga Backup StoreGrid Web Console. Note that you can add additional users, delete users, change password etc. from the Web Console UI after the installation.

  9. Configure Backup Server Port and UI Communication Port

    By default Giga Backup StoreGrid uses the ' Backup Server Port' 32004, for all the client-server communications and the 'UI Communication Port' 32005 for communication between the Giga Backup StoreGrid Web Console and the Giga Backup StoreGrid Application. If you wish Giga Backup StoreGrid to use ports other than the default, you are provided with the following options here :

    • "Do you want to change these ports from default value?"

    • If you enter "y/Y" then following text will displayed in terminal to enter Giga Backup StoreGrid's Backup Server Port and the UI Communication Port.

    • "Please enter a valid port value [numerical whole number] for Backup Server Port".

    • Enter the Backup Server Port value here.

    • "Please enter a valid port value [Numerical whole number] for UI Communication Port".

    • Enter the UI Communication Port value here.

  10. This installs the product and completes the installation process. After successful installation, you are provided with an option to start the Giga Backup StoreGrid. After the installation, you can start Giga Backup StoreGrid by executing the script "startVembuStoreGrid.sh" from the directory "<INSTALLATION_HOME>/Vembu/StoreGrid/".

Note:

After successful installation, you can open the Giga Backup StoreGrid Web Console from your browser by typing http://<Your Machine Name>:6060. You will have to login to the Web Console using the username and password you provided in the "Giga Backup StoreGrid Web Console Authentication" step during the installation.
