Make sure that the RPM Package Manager (RPM) is installed in your system. Before installing the product on a Linux distribution that does not use RPM, such as Ubuntu, you need to install RPM manually; for example, by running the following command as the root user:

  apt-get install rpm  

Linux distributions where RPM is already installed include Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Before proceeding with installation, you need to extract the installation files and assign them necessary access permissions:

  1. On a machine running Windows, run the Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 setup file.
  2. Click Extract installation files.
  3. In the list of installation files, select the following check boxes:
    • Agent for Linux (AcronisAgentLinux.i686)
    • Bootable Media Builder (AcronisBootableComponentsMediaBuilderLinux.i686)
    • Management Console for Linux (AcronisManagementConsoleLinux.i686)
    • Deduplication (AcronisDeduplication.i686)
    • UpgradeTool (AcronisUpgradeToolLinux.i686)

      Note: You need Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Upgrade Tool only if you are upgrading from Acronis True Image Echo.

  4. Copy the installation files (.i686 files) to a directory on the machine where you want to install the components.
  5. Go to the directory where you copied the installation files, and then run the following command:

    chmod 777 Acronis*.i686
