EMC Networker version 8 is a Tier 1 backup/recovery software product that can be configured to work for Clients of any size, however its breadth and scope (and various client packages) also can add some complexity. Take for instance the task of figuring out what client software to install. Depending on the OS and app version the matrix can get complicated. So much so that I put together the following flowchart for a client to help decipher the different installation scenarios. Oh, and this flowchart doesn’t include the software needed if you want to do online backups of Oracle (Networker Module for DB and Apps).
