Veritas NetBackup™ Appliance Upgrade Guide

  • Modified Date: 2017-06-26

About upgrades to NetBackup Appliance software version 3.0 and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system

Starting with NetBackup Appliance software version 2.7.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) replaces the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) operating system. You can upgrade any existing 5220, 5230, 5240 or 5330 appliances that currently use earlier software versions to version 3.0. In some situations, you may need to upgrade twice to get to version 3.0.

Note:

The NetBackup 5200 Appliance does not support upgrade to versions 2.7.1 and later, due to Intel components that are not supported by RHEL version 6.6 or later.

This topic covers the following information that you should review before an upgrade to version 3.0:

Supported upgrade paths

Preflight check before the upgrade
