NetBackup Appliance Compatibility Notes
The NetBackup appliances are Veritas-defined platforms of hardware, firmware and software. This includes driver revisions, OS levels and patches of all devices or software components. There are no modifications allowed without the express instructions of Veritas Technical Support. Modifications to the appliance in any fashion without express instructions from Veritas Technical Support will void warranty and result in an unsupported configuration.
Further information about our support policies can be found here:
Additionally, the only supported patches that may be applied to the NetBackup Appliances are the appliance-specific patches at the following link:
NetBackup Appliance, version 2.7.x, or later, is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Earlier versions of NetBackup, or PureDisk Appliances, are SUSE Linux-based. Unless otherwise noted, the appliance has the same compatibility with other agents, or products, as the underlying PureDisk or NetBackup products.
For example, a NetBackup 5200 v2.0.2 Master/Media Server appliance (based on 126.96.36.199) has the same compatibility with another NetBackup, PureDisk or Backup Exec host as a non-appliance 188.8.131.52 Master/Media Server unless otherwise noted.
Master/Media Server Compatibility
See the Release Notes of the applicable appliance software version for Master/Media compatbility information. Release Notes can be found on the NetBackup Appliance Documentation page.
