Symantec BackupExec 12.5 RALUS on Ubuntu


Although backup exec 12.5 does not officially support Remote Agent installation on Ubuntu I have had success installing it on my Ubuntu Hardy servers. Just download the agents from Symantec File Connect and extract the contents. Then go to this folder: BEWS_12.5.2213_LINUX-UNIX-MAC-SAP_AGENTS/pkgs/Linux/VRTSralus/ Inside is a file called VRTSralus.tar.gz. Extract the contents of that and you will see a .DEB file that you can install on a debian based system (VRTSralus-12.5.2213-0.i386.deb).

Install that as root like so...

dpkg -i VRTSralus-12.5.2213-0.i386.deb

Deploy Adobe Flash 10.1x with ARD


 For some reason unbeknownst to myself Adobe decided to stop releasing flash player for Macintosh as a package sometime this summer. This is very inconvenient when trying to deploy the player on multiple machines in order to push patches to security holes in their software. With a little poking around I found that the package is in the download you just need to extract it. To do so...
