Upgrading Plug-in Server

Configuring Plug-in Server for use with Plug-in Offline Client

The second phase of setting up the Plug-in Server involves environment configuration, which is divided into two steps. The following topics illustrate the procedures that must be followed to complete these steps.

Creating a Plug-in Offline Client Boot System

Before using the Plug-in Server, create a Plug-in Offline Client Boot System. This minimal OS loads to a target machine’s memory, rather than to its hard drive. This process leaves the hard drives inactive (offline) and in a suitable state for backup or restore. The Plug-in Offline Client is created on a writable CD. You can also boot from a LiveCD with the Plug-in Offline Client binaries on a separate device, such as a Universal Serial Bus (USB) device that uses the 3.0 protocol or earlier. This process is described in Creating a rescue device for use with a LiveCD.

Creating a Linux-based Boot System

The following items are required for this procedure:

1
Download Plug-in Offline Client, VaultOS from the Quest website.
2
Note the name and location of this file, for example, “/home/vaultos_x86_vxxx.zip,” where xxx represents the software version number.
