About the NetBackup 8.3 release
The NetBackup Release Notes document is meant to act as a snapshot of information about a version of NetBackup at the time of its release. Old information and any information that no longer applies to a release is either removed from the release notes or migrated elsewhere in the NetBackup documentation set.
NetBackup 8.3 incorporates fixes to many of the known issues that affected customers in previous versions of NetBackup. Some of these fixes are associated with the customer-specific issues. Several of the customer-related fixes that were incorporated into this release were also made available as emergency engineering binaries (EEBs).
Listings of the EEBs and Etracks that document the known issues that have been fixed in NetBackup 8.3 can be found on the Veritas Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) website and in the .
The NetBackup appliances run a software package that includes a preconfigured version of NetBackup. When a new appliance software release is developed, the latest version of NetBackup is used as a basis on which the appliance code is built. For example, NetBackup Appliance 3.1 is based on NetBackup 8.1 This development model ensures that all applicable features, enhancements, and fixes that were released within NetBackup are included in the latest release of the appliance.
The NetBackup appliance software is released at the same time as the NetBackup release upon which it is based, or soon thereafter. If you are a NetBackup appliance customer, make sure to review the NetBackup Release Notes that correspond to the NetBackup appliance version that you plan to run.
