Trying to install Veritas volume manager on Centos


Installed Centos 4.3

Downloaded from Symantec Veritas Fondation manager. When I try to install it complains the O/S is not Redhat Enterprise AS.

Complains it can't find "redhat-release" rpm

I have modified /etc/redhat-release to emulate RH AS with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant)

Does anybody know if this can be installed on Centos ?

Nothing personal, I just do not provide help where legal issues may arise.

If you think about the issue the answer is in your grasp, please re-read your first posting in this thread.

OK. I understand.

I am fairly new to Linux. Know a lot about FBSD.

Need to learn Veritas. Comming from small installations to large data centers including Veritas volume managers and clustering. Including HP, Sun and guess what Linux.

I have downloaded RH4-3 AS and could install Symantec's product on that, but like what Centos is doing. Bearly know yum/exyum/rpm or up2date.

I have attemped to download the rpm package that appears to be needed. Tried to install it but it complained about conflicts with the other rpm. Forced the install(--force). It installed and talked about three files -

/etc/redhat-release
/etc/issue
/etc/issue.net

The installation still complains and aborts.

Do you think the foundation suite install script needs to be tweaked ?

Maybe I didn't install the correct redhat-release rpm ?

I think your right, but I need some hints...
