Completing your system update after an upgrade
After you have upgraded servers and clients, you may need to perform additional tasks to complete the update of your NetBackup environment.
Perform any of the following that apply to your NetBackup environment:
Master server privileges
If you upgraded a master server that allowed nonroot users to administer NetBackup, you must reconfigure the permissions and the group. The default permissions and group on the newly installed files allow only a root user to perform NetBackup administration.
Update the trust relationship between remote master servers for targeted auto image replication (AIR)
After you upgrade both your source and your target master server from 8.0 or earlier to 8.1 or later, you must update the trust relationship. Upgrading from NetBackup 8.1 to a later version does not require you to reestablish the trust relationship. Run the command that is shown on both the source and the target master servers to reestablish the trust relationship:
nbseccmd -setuptrustedmaster -update
More information is available. See the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
Upgrade any add-on products (such as NetBackup language packages) on all upgraded clients. All add-on products should be at the same version as the NetBackup client.
If you made changes to NetBackup scripts before the upgrade, apply those changes to the new, upgraded versions of the scripts.
External certificate authority
Configure your external certificate authority. If you opted to skip the security configuration or if your environment uses ECA, you may need to configure an ECA. More information about configuring ECAs is available:
Update storage servers
NetBackup does not update objects such as storage servers and disk pools every time the storage changes. Storage changes can result from NetBackup MSDP changes and 3rd party OST vendor software upgrades. Additionally, changes to the storage-defined replication topologies that SLP replication uses as well as import operations require an update. The user must proactively confirm these changes through the use of the updatests and updatedp commands. A NetBackup upgrade may introduce new functionality you want to use in your environment. Veritas recommends that you run the updatests and updatedp commands on the storage servers and disk pools where you want to use this new functionality. For more information about the updatests and updatedp commands, see the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide
