Is xinetd.d installed and running?
How did you install the client?
If xinetd is not installed, it may try /etc/inetd.conf, if neither are
installed or available, it probably will start it as standalone.
Here is the bpcd on a client:
$ cat bpcd
# Service bpcd for NetBackup
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcd
disable = no
Run: /sbin/chkconfig --list | grep bpcd
Make sure its on, if its not, enable it and restart xinetd, you will need
to kill off bpcd or cycle services too probably.
