Once an environment has been added to the Tranzman Appliance follow the steps provided to download and install the client agent on the targets.

The client is a tool create to collect configuration, usage and sizing information about the backup environments. It currently supports the following platforms.

  • Windows 32 bit (2003 or higher)
  • Windows 64 bit (2003 or higher)
  • Linux 32 bit (kernel 2.6 or higher)
  • Linux 64 bit (kernel 2.6 or higher)
  • AIX 5.X or higher
  • HPUX 10.* or higher
  • Solaris 9 or higher


Prerequisites

  • For Linux/Unix, you must install NFS Utils on target machine so that Tranzman can transfer data to/from it.
  • For Windows, SMB Signing needs to be Disabled so that Tranzman can transfer data to/from it. This can be achieved by editing the following RegEdit field;
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters\RequiresSecuritySignature=0
  • Anti-virus products that perform on-demand scanning will significantly slow down the Tranzman agents. You should white-list the processes and folders used by Tranzman.
Note.png Note: Remember to start the agent as the required user. For Windows system either as an Administrator/ System account, and for Linux as a root level account.

The following steps are applicable to all backup products. Some products have additional steps that must be run.
