: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpminlicense: error while loading shared libraries: libnsl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (127)
During Netbackup Master/Media installation on RHEL 8, NetBackup tries to execute bpminlicense tool which have dependency on OS library “libnsl.so.1”. RHEL 8 has upgraded this library to “libnsl.so.2”. Hence Netbackup is not able to execute bpminlicense as it didn’t find required library “libnsl.so.1”.
Veritas Technologies LLC has acknowledged that the above-mentioned issue (ETrack 3968351) is present in the NetBackup 8.2.
This workaround involves installing “libnsl.so.1” by executing below steps.
- Login with root credentials.
- Install library: libnsl.so.1
- Please install NetBackup again.
In order to install the package libnsl , you may also have to install dependencies libXtst and ncurses-compat-libs.
jnbSA has dependency of libXtst and it is not installed on the system by default.
Install the library libXtst from RedHat installation media.
NetBackup 8.1.1 and 8.1.2 requires additional library - ncurses-compat-libs
NetBackup 8.2, 8.1.2, 8.1.1, RHEL 8
