A NetBackup 126.96.36.199 Java console is unable to browse Backup History (Backup, Archive and Restore > Actions menu > Set Date Range > Backup History...) on master servers running earlier 7.5.0.x versions. When trying to do so, a status 144 error (invalid command usage) is reported.
bpclimagelist: unrecognized option
-first_fragment (Status 144)
The -first_fragment command line switch was added in NetBackup 188.8.131.52, but this switch should not be used with bpclimagelist and bplist commands called by Java console processes if the master server queried is at a version prior to 184.108.40.206 - if it happens, status 144 is returned.
The formal resolution for this issue (Etrack 3245359) is included in the following release:
- NetBackup 7.5 Maintenance Release 7 (220.127.116.11)
