How to find which version of Ralus is installed

Many problems are caused because of version mismatch between server and client backup exec software. Here is the simple steps how to check the version.

###############Linux
  1. From root user run:

    strings  /opt/VRTSralus/bin/beremote | grep -i version

You may already know these commands, but I prefer to explain:

Strings main uses are to determine the contents of and to extract text from binary files. The strings command returns each string of printable characters in files Printable characters are those which actually display on a monitor screen.

Grep prints lines that contain a match for a pattern.
-i option means ignore case. So tells grep to do case insensitive search of “version” keyword.

###############Windows
  1. go to:  ?\Program  Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\beremote.exe
  2. right click and select Properties
  3. view the Details tab
