I’m trying to figure out the steps to follow to install just the URBackup client on the CentOS 7 of the minimal version if that matter.
I found two resources but it’s not real clear of the specific procedure to follow or if anything needs updated for the process instructions.
- Do I just need to dowload the https://hndl.urbackup.org/Client/2.1.16/urbackup-client-2.1.16.tar.gz file, get it copied or accessible from my CentOS machine, and then follow the instructions on the post here: Simple way to get CENTOS client working or is there anything more up to date than these instuctions?
I think for CentOS you have th build the package or whatever, but I’m only interesting in using the client only since it’ll backup to the URBackup server that already exists but everything else is Windows.
The URBackup compressed images are much smaller than the Hyper-V WSAdmin backup files on Windows but I’m not sure how to get the client only installed onto the CentOS 7 client machine.
Even if I can get a good starting point I can test and get it figured out, and then I can document and put clear instruction on the site for others that I used if something like this does not already install.
Any help, guidance, or advice is appreciated since I’m a Windows Admin and still learning Linux, installing with YUM or an installer like such confuses me but I can figure it out with a little help so I thought I’d ask in case someone and steer me in the right direction.
