How To: Stop and start Oracle server on Linux/Unix

Legato Networker is a often-used and well known backup software solution from EMC. To also use this software on not officially supported operating systems (in this example Gentoo Linux), here is a little workaround how to install it on your Gentoo machine.


1. Copy the client-package of Networker on your system (via SFTP, mounted CD and so on). Save the file lgtoclnt-7.3.3-1.x86_64.rpm in /.

2. Because Gentoo doesn’t know how to handle installations of RPM-files, it must be converted into a tar.gz-file. It sounds complicated, in fact it is the easiest thing ever with the rpm2targz command.

3. Decompress the new tar.gz-file. The files within this package will be moved into /usr/bin, /usr/lib and /usr/sbin.

4. Add your Networker backup server in /etc/hosts.

5. Create a symbolic link /usr/bin/nsrexecd to /usr/sbin/nsrexecd

6. Install startup-script in /etc/init.d because the Networker client-package doesn’t include a startscript. After you’re finished with the script, give it the correct executable rights.

stop() {
(echo 'stopping NetWorker daemons:') > /dev/console
if [ -f /usr/sbin/nsr_shutdown ]; then
if [ -f /usr/sbin/NetWorker.clustersvr ]; then
(/usr/sbin/nsr_shutdown -c -a -q) > /dev/console 2>&1
(echo ' nsr_shutdown -c -a -q') > /dev/console
(/usr/sbin/nsr_shutdown) > /dev/console 2>&1
(echo ' nsr_shutdown') > /dev/console

7. For a correct run of Networker it is a must to have portmap running too. So that’s why we start networker and portmap now.

8. Finally we’re almost done. Now we want portmap and networker to start automatically after a boot of the machine.
