     this Release Update.

1) Close the NetBackup user interfaces.
  - Make sure the NetBackup server has no active jobs running (for example,
    backups, restores, or duplications).

  - If a database agent is being used, such as Sybase, ensure that the database
    services are stopped.

2) Install the Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

  Pick option 1 (Remote Installation) when prompted for the installation
  method.

      cd /usr/openv/pack/${PACK.EN_US}/save

3)  Run the un-install script:

      ./NB_update.uninstall

4)  Verify that the Release Update uninstalled successfully by checking
