It sounds like perhaps the install didn't complete 100% succesfully. Have the backups ever worked/run from this server? There should not be any problem running 9.0 on this version of Linux. As a matter of fact, I just finished testing an install of version 9 on RH 5.8 the other day and it ran w/no problems at all.
One thing you can try is to set up your environment accordingly, and try running the cvd process manually to see if it starts...
From a root logon on the RH server do the following:
- cd /opt/simpana
- . ./Base/cvprofile
- . ./galaxy_vm
Run the commands from step 1 through 4 above remember to use a space between the dot command "." and the dot-slash "./" in the beginning of the file/directory.
What do you get when you try to run the "cvd" command?
