Third-party plug-ins for RHEL

Since all NetBackup appliances with version and earlier use SLES version third-party plug-ins, upgrades to version 2.7.1 and later require that these plug-ins be replaced with the appropriate RHEL versions. If the preflight upgrade script identifies any required RHEL third-party plug-ins that are not found, the upgrade is not allowed to proceed.


The preflight upgrade script only identifies those plug-ins that are required for the upgrade. When version 2.7.1 was released, some third-party vendors had not yet completed development of their RHEL equivalent plug-ins. Make sure to check those vendor websites periodically for any additional plug-ins that you may need.
