    See About post-installation validation.

  4. Confirm that the license is correct.
Check license and check request type codes for changes

Request types are used to perform actions within NetBackup Self Service. The NetBackup Self Service license specifies that you can use a maximum of 22 active request types. By default, after upgrade the system has 17 request types. You can view the request types in Self Service on the website in Admin > Request & Approval > Request Type.

Request types are split into two broad categories which relate to the main dashboards' solution. The categories are: request types that cannot be deactivated and default request types.

Confirm that all of the request types in Table: Request types which cannot be deactivated and Table: Default request types associated with the dashboard end-user actions are active.

As part of the upgrade, the current versions of these five request types are installed. The existing request types are exported to disk and stored in the install_location\MsBuild\DataExport directory. The Integration Settings and Action Request Types section is reset to the default request types. Review any locally customized request types and update or replace the new request type as appropriate.

These are the only request types currently used in NetBackup Self Service by default. Any other shipped request types are deactivated on upgrade. Confirm their status in Admin > Request & Approval > Request Type.
