Install Links:


Using the NetBackup Emergency Engineering Binary (EEB) installer


Installing EEBs on a NetBackup 52x0 / 5330 Appliance


Installation Instructions:


1. Download the vxupdate SJA client installation packages for all client platforms that need to be upgraded. After downloaded, add each one to the repository. For example, if there are windows and red hat clients to be upgraded, add these to the master/primary server's repository.


          nbrepo -a vxupdate_nb_8.3.0.1_windows_x64.sja
          nbrepo -a vxupdate_nb_8.3.0.1_redhat_x64.sja

          nbrepo -l 



                 ID    Type                         Version           OS                            File Name
                  --     -------------                    -------               -----------                      -----------------------------------
                  1     server+client            windows_x64          vxupdate_nb_8.3.0.1_windows_x64.sja
                  7      server+client            redhat_x64              vxupdate_nb_8.3.0.1_redhat_x64.sja


VERY IMPORTANT - The vxupdate packages for ALL the clients platforms in the environment have to be downloaded and added before applying the EEB. The EEB will not work as expected if this step is not performed correctly.


2. On the master/primary server, download the eeb installer zip file or appliance RPM.
3. Run eeb installer on master/primary. For example, if windows, execute eebinstaller_4047816_1_AMD64.exe
4. Then from the master/primary host - select the client/s to be upgraded (via host properties or deployment policies) and then run the upgrade by selecting the vxupdate package
