How to Install R1Soft

Update the Server:

yum update -y


Install KernelCare - This allows you to keep updated:

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


You can check if KernelCare is installed by:

kcarectl --info


Time to sort the R1Soft repo out:

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


Paste in the following:

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


Time to install R1Soft:

yum install serverbackup-enterprise -y


Next, we need to set-up R1oft:

serverbackup-setup --user admin --pass r1soft!


Restart R1Soft:

/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart


You can now go to your IP/Hostname if you have set one up e.g.: http://ip-address/login.zul


After you have logged in click on Accept to agree to the EUL.

You can then start the 14-day trial after you set up the Agents.
