Enabling 32-Bit Installations on 64-Bit Linux Computers
By default, 64-bit agents are installed on Linux computers.
If you have a 64-bit Linux computer and you need to protect 32-bit applications, you can configure the installation program to install 32-bit agents.
At a minimum, the following 32-bit libraries must be installed on the 64-bit Linux computer:
- C and C++ runtime libraries, such as libc6-i386 and lib32stdc++6, or equivalents
- Compression libraries, such as lib32z1 or equivalent
- Access control lists libraries, such as libacl.i386 or equivalent
Use one of the following methods to enable 32-bit installations:
Preferred Method: Using the CommCell Console (Remote Installation)
During a remote installation, on the UNIX Advanced Options page of the installation wizard, select the Install 32-bit instead of default 64-bit packages (Linux_x86_64 only) - This will protect 32-bit applications only check box.
For instructions on remote installations, see Installing SnapProtect Remotely Using the CommCell Console.
Alternative Method: Using the Installation Package (Local Installation)
Before you run the installation package, create a lock file on the 64-bit computer by running the following command:
After the file is created, you can install 32-bit agents by running the installation package. For instructions, see Installing SnapProtect Locally on UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh Computers Using the Installation Package.
