Add CentOS or RHEL Agents for Unitrends Backup

Client Computer Tasks

First, download the agent for your OS from the Unitrends agent update pages:
Next, install the downloaded agent with the following command, replacing PATHTORPMFILE with the path to the file you just downloaded:

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck PATHTORPMFILE

Once the agent is installed, make sure the service starts at each boot with this command:

chkconfig xinetd on

If you’re using a firewall, add exceptions for TCP ports 1743 and 1745:

iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p tcp --dport 1743 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p tcp --dport 1745 -j ACCEPT
/sbin/service iptables save

Edit the ini file that was installed to set the firewall data port to use port 1745:

vi /usr/bp/bpinit/master.ini

Change the line for “data” from 1744 to 1745.
Restart the backup agent:

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

Unitrends Web Interface Configuration

Log in to the Unitrends backup web interface. Click on Settings > System Updates and Licensing > General (Advanced). Expand the Configuration Options section, and find the option marked “data.” Change the value to 1745.

 Add the client

To add a client, click on Settings > Clients, Networking, and Notifications > Clients.
Click “Add Client.”
In the Add Client Window, set the Computer Type to “All Other OS.”
