unable to install Acronis Backup software

Asked by mona on 2009-10-28

Hi everybody, Hope someone kindly help me to install Acronis Backup on my Linux Ubuntu server 9.04(32bits).

I just registered for Acronis Backup and Disaster recovery. I downloaded the software on my linux machine, and try to run, and install it, it gives me error: " AcronisAgentLinux.i686" cannot be opened. No application suitable for automatic installation is available for handling this kind of file".

I just searched, and talked with Acronis'Support, and I found out, to this software run, and execute, "Snapapi" module has to be insatlled on my linux operating system.

Please help me before huge datalost

You have to make it executable by using the command:

chmod 777 AcronisAgentLinux.i686

and run it:

./AcronisAgentLinux.i686 (from its parent directory)


Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
