Details of cloud providers and related enhancements that were available in 8.0.00 (deployed using the Cloud Configuration packages) are not available in 8.1.00 base version

  • Article ID:100039548
  • Modified Date:
  • Product(s):


This information applies to NetBackup 8.1 installations which use cloud storage units.  New cloud support and enhancements (for example, new region support) have been added since the packaging of NetBackup 8.1 GA.  It may be necessary to download the latest NetBackup cloud configuration file and update the master server immediately following NetBackup 8.1 GA installation.
New cloud providers and related enhancements are continuously being added to NetBackup with the NetBackup cloud configuration file.  The NetBackup 8.1 GA release contains an older cloud configuration file.  A NetBackup 7.7.x or 8.0 environment may be already using a newer cloud configuration file than is contained natively in the NetBackup 8.1 GA release.  The latest version of the NetBackup cloud configuration file, for use with NetBackup 8.0 and 8.1, is available for download from the Veritas Support Website
The following cloud providers and related enhancements have been recently added to the NetBackup cloud configuration file since NetBackup 8.0:
