This should be the fix.

A) Install as normal on Mac OS X 10.1 (or any other UNXClient).  

B) The install script will copy /usr/openv/netbackup client contents to
the Mac OS X 10.2 system, but it *MAY* hang at the end of the install.  

C) If it hangs, control break out.  

D) Verify contents of /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/  should contain atleast
bpcd, bpbkar, tar.  Optional binaries are vopied, bp, and some others.

Note: bp binary will not work on 10.2.  This is a known issue as well.
Therefore you are restricted to do master-side schedule backup and
restore.  User-initiated backup/restore is not available for 10.2.

E) The install script will make changes to xinetd.conf, however, it will
not work properly on 10.2.  You must use inetd, and make appropriate
changes to /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/services:


bpcd    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcd

vopied  stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/openv/bin/vopied vopied

bpjava-msvc     stream  tcp     nowait  root
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpjava-msvc bpjava-msvc -transient


bpcd    13782/tcp       bpcd

vopied  13783/tcp       vopied

bpjava-msvc     13722/tcp       bpjava-msvc

inetd services needs to he properly killed and restarted.  If there are
problems doing this, simply reboot the MacOS X 10.2 NBU Client.

F) Check to make sure inetd process is running.  Use "ps -aux| grep

G) Testing.  Telnet into the client by hostname and IP at port 13782:

telnet mymacclient 13782

Connected to mymaclient.
Escape character is '^]'.

When you see connected, bpcd is listening via inetd at 13782.  ^] to
break out of it.  You should be good to go from here.  Configure as any
other unix client, given the caveat I provided.
