Document : INSTALL.TXT Date : 2 May 2000 Title : Installation Notes ### PLEASE READ AND PRINT THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT BEFORE PROCEEDING ### The .EXE,.ZIP, or .tgz that you downloaded does NOT install TapeWare. It simply creates the directory structure needed for you to install TapeWare. The default install directory is C:\TWINS on Dos, NetWare, and Windows. On Linux the default install directory should be /usr/twins. This is what you need to know before installing TapeWare: --------------------------------------------------------- If you are using a SCSI adapter on either DOS or NetWare, TapeWare requires that your SCSI adapter's ASPI driver be loaded and that the adapter and all devices are functioning properly before TapeWare is installed. If your OS cannot see the device, TapeWare can't see it either. TapeWare must be installed on every server and workstation you want backed up. Language support: ----------------- If you have downloaded tw62all.exe you may install any of the supported languages. If you have selected a particular language to download, you may only install that language. Attempting to install any "missing" language will cause an error message to be generated and TapeWare will NOT be installed. Extracting TapeWare: -------------------- Windows - Run the self-extracting .zip to extract TapeWare to the default directories. Change to the default directory after extraction has completed. NetWare and Dos - You may extract TapeWare to the default directories, or, if you have downloaded twNet*, or twDos*, you use may WinZip to extract from the DOS prompt using the command line options -o -d. For example, first create a TWINS directory on the SYS volume of your server, copy twNetEng.zip into this directory and extract by typing twNetEng -o -d from the prompt. Linux - You may extract TapeWare to the default directories, or, if you have downloaded twLin*, you may copy the .tgz to the Linux box and extract using the tar utility. For example, extract by typing tar xvfz twLinAll.tgz from the command prompt. If you are ftping from any TapeWare download other than the .tgz, you should extract to /usr/twins making sure to create the correct directory structure. Also, you need to set permission executable for all files and directories in the /usr/twins directory. These steps need to be repeated on every server or workstation you want to backup. Steps to install: ----------------- Windows 95/98/NT - If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.00, run Setup from the C:\TWINS directory. If you need to copy the Windows version to another server or workstation, copy SETUP.EXE, the WIN directory, and the contents of the WIN directory to the target machine. NetWare - To start the installation process, enter LOAD SYS:TWINS/INSTALL at the server console. Linux - To start the installation process, enter ./install from a Linux installation directory. DOS - To start the installation process, enter INSTALL from the installation directory. The DOS version must be installed from the DOS prompt. The DOS version cannot be run from a Windows 95/98/NT DOS box. The DOS version can used to backup a Windows 3.1 workstation. You will be asked if this is an evaluation version of TapeWare. If it is, answer "Yes" and continue with the installation. If this is a live version, answer "No" and enter your keycode in the keycode box. If installing the Windows version, enter your name and Company name. Select the proper transport for your network: IPX, TCP/IP or No network. If you select "No network" you will not be able to communicate with other work stations or servers. Now select "Create a Storage Management Zone" and either give the Zone a name, or accept the default name. Don't skip this step. Don't say you want to "join a Zone." NO Zone exists at this point and TapeWare will NOT function properly. Complete the installation, and when through, start TapeWare: 1. Windows 95/98/NT click on the desktop icon. 2. NetWare enter TWADMIN at the server console. 3. Linux change to the TapeWare directory and enter ./twadmin at the prompt, or twxadmin from X-Window. 4. DOS change to the TapeWare directory and enter TWADMIN. Click, or press Enter, on the "Storage Management Zone" box to make sure a Zone exists. If the Zone exists continue to login; if not, reinstall TapeWare following the above instructions. The default login name is ADMIN. There is no password. Install the remaining platforms and select "Join an existing Storage Management Zone" when asked. Choose the Zone you created during the initial installation. Windows NT Users: ----------------- If you want to install an Evaluation copy of TapeWare's Disaster Recovery, Microsoft SQL Server Agent, or Microsoft Exchange Server Agent, Microsoft Cluster Server, etc., either continue, or restart, the installation. Select "Install Option" from the Setup menu. You may install any of the available options. You will be asked if this is an Evaluation copy. If you answer "Yes" the Keycode is automatically inserted. Windows 95/98 Users: -------------------- If you want to install an Evaluation copy of TapeWare's Disaster Recovery, either continue, or restart, the installation. Select "Install Option" from the Setup menu. You may install any of the available options. You will be asked if this is an Evaluation copy. If you answer "Yes" the Keycode is automatically inserted. NetWare Users: -------------- If you want to install TapeWare's Disaster Recovery, Btrieve Server Agent, etc., either continue, or restart, the installation. Select "Install Option" from the Install menu. You may install any of the available options. You will be asked if this is an Evaluation copy. If you answer "Yes" the Keycode is automatically inserted. Options: -------- After you have installed TapeWare, you may install a 30 day evaluation of any TapeWare Option that is available for your platform. Simply stay in, or restart, install or setup, select Options and install the option(s) you wish to evaluate. Register TapeWare: ------------------ If TapeWare was purchased electronically, you need to register the software in order to get a CD-ROM disk. If you do not have a CD-ROM disk, and your system crashes, you cannot reinstall TapeWare. Thus you cannot restore your system. PLEASE REGISTER FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION.Download Driver Pack
