Seagate Backup Exec & MP-RAS

Seagate Backup Exec & MP-RAS

Post by Glenn A. Kraec » Tue, 05 Aug 1997 04:00:00


I have a need to run Seagate's Backup Exec agent on an NCR 3455 running
MP-RAS SVR4 version 3.0.

I am using the unixware executable as provided by Seagate.  The daemon

The Seagate Backup Exec software is running on an NT 4.0 (SVCPK3) server
on the same IP subnet.  Backup Exec "sees" the 3455 AND the shared
resource, but when it attempts to connect, it replies "insufficient
number of connections available".

I have several other AT&T and NCR (older) versions of SYSV runnning on a
variety of hardware platforms on this subnet.  Backup Exec is able to
"see", connect to and backup everything but this 3455.  The 3455 is the
ONLY SYSV 4.0 3.0 machine that I have.  Since STREAMware TCP/IP was
first implemented in this release, I have been suspecting some elusive
listener option as the culprit.  No luck yet.

Seagate's BE seems to do an rfs (remote file sharing) type of thing and
I have been looking in that area.  On the older versions of SYSV, sysadm
allowed you to set the total number of remote file connections that you
expected to support through sysadm.  Since STREAMware is not
configurable through sysadm, I am lost.

Seagate does not explicitly support SYSV, so I am sure I will get far
with their tech. support.  I will try as a last resort.

Any ideas?  Sorry for the Long post.

When I try to compile SATAN on my AT&T 3450 running MP-RAS 2.02, I
get the following error messages.  Does anyone know what _abi_innetgr
is?  I can't find it in any of my libraries.  How can I get around

Any help would be appreciated.
