OSB installation on Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) for filesystem backup

There does not appear to be any special documentation for installing the OSB client on an ODA.  However, the following errors occur on all of our ODAs when attempting to install the OSB client:

[root@oda000 backup]# pwd
/usr/local/oracle/backup
[root@oda000 backup]# which uncompress
/usr/bin/uncompress
[root@oda000 backup]# /opt/osb/osb-10.4.0.2.0_linux.x64_cdrom120606/setup
Welcome to Oracle's setup program for Oracle Secure Backup. This
program loads Oracle Secure Backup software from the CD-ROM to a
filesystem directory of your choosing.

This CD-ROM contains Oracle Secure Backup version 10.4.0.2.0_LINUX64.

Please wait a moment while I learn about this host... done.

ERROR: can't uncompress /usr/tmp/OB531
(made from /opt/osb/osb-10.4.0.2.0_linux.x64_cdrom120606/linux86_64/gserver.tz)

This is probably due to the uncompress utility being unavailable.
Make sure uncompress is available and then re-run setup.
[root@oda000 backup]# which uncompress
/usr/bin/uncompress
[root@oda000 backup]# ls -lah /usr/bin/uncompress
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Feb 22 17:33 /usr/bin/uncompress -> /usr/bin/unzip


Note that the symlink of uncompress to unzip is directly from the OSB installation documentation. None of those files exist in /usr/tmp, but there is a similarly named .Z file there.  However the file name changes, so it cannot just be renamed or manually uncompressed.  I also tried extracting from the mentioned "gserver.tz" file, to no avail.

Please advise as to how to complete OSB client installation on an ODA.
