“Cannot find VRTSperl to execute”

I got this error while installing Netbackup 6 on Solaris 10 Sparc:

“the following package(s) are mising and must be installed before Netbackup can be installed:”


It means that VRTSpbx must be installed before continue to install Netbackup 6.

Eject Netbackup CD, and mount ICS CD (Infrastructure Core Services v. then run installics script,

it give me another error:

“cannot find VRTSperl to execute”

Ok, this another dependencies, I need to install VRTSperl before install VRTSpbx. But it quite strange because I can’t find VRTSperl package on ICS or Netbackup CD.

So if u have same problem, you need to install VRTSperl package. can be found on Veritas Storage Foundation v.4.1 CD.

Install this package :

#gunzip VRTSperl.tar.gz

#tar -xvf VRTSperl.tar

#pkgadd -d .

The following packages are available:
1  VRTSperl     Perl 5.8.0 for VERITAS
(sparc) 4.0.2

Select package(s) you wish to process (or ‘all’ to process
all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]: all


Then continue with the ICS installation:


Note: Please avoid to run script like this:


you will get error like this:

Can’t locate VxIF/TrainInstaller.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/ VRTSperl/lib/5.8.0/sun4-solaris-thread-multi /opt/VRTSperl/lib/5. 8.0 /opt/VRTSperl/lib/site_perl/5.8.0/sun4-solaris-thread-multi / opt/VRTSperl/lib/site_perl/5.8.0 /opt/VRTSperl/lib/site_perl .) a t /cdrom/nb_60_ics_1.2.3.45_solaris/./installics line 3.

So, U have to change directory to “/cdrom/nb_60_ics_1.2.3.45_solaris/” then run the script “./installics” from there.

After install and configure ICS, move on with the Netbackup 6 Installation..

    • Hi Mark, I think you can’t download ICS cd. Right now, All NBU Media (NBU and ICS) bundled in one DVD. I have latest DVD, but sorry I can’t share it with you:-0)
