Netbackup Ports

Note to self: After installing the Netbackup client, don't forget to open ports 1556 and 13724 in the firewall.

Simple Things

Having a Red Hat 6 install with no GUI, and little else, made installing Netbackup clients from CDROM rather problematic.  No definition for the CDROM drive was in /etc/fstab so "mount /dev/cdrom" wasn't going to work.  Running "fdisk -l" did not show a CDROM and scanning and grepping dmesg revealed no clues.  Then I found this command:

# wodim --devices

That worked (after running "yum install wodim").  Handy command!
