How to Install an Agent Manually

First, we need to sort the R1Soft repo out:

nano -w /etc/yum.repos.d/r1soft.repo


With the following:

[r1soft]
name=R1Soft Repository Server
baseurl=http://repo.r1soft.com/yum/stable/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0


Time to install the R1Soft Agent software:

yum install serverbackup-agent -y


If you get the following message:

No binary module was found for your kernel. The kernel headers will be required to build a module.


Do the following:

rpm -i http://patches.kernelcare.com/kernelcare-latest.el6.x86_64.rpm


Then grab the module:

serverbackup-setup --get-module


If you still get an error about the kernel, run:

yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r) -y


Then grab the module:

serverbackup-setup --get-module


After you've got the module installed, you need to restart the new driver:

/etc/init.d/cdp-agent restart
