=========================
Note: This will ONLY uninstall the Maintenance Pack from your local machine.

As root:

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 Oracle,
ensure that the database services are stopped.

2) Change directory to the patch save directory.
Substitute the pack name for ${PACK.EN_US} in the following command:

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

3) Run the un-install script:

./Vrts_pack.uninstall

4) Verify that the pack uninstalled successfully by checking
/usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

5) If update_clients was run after the pack was originally INSTALLED,
and pack is successfully UNINSTALLED, run:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients

6) If necessary, restart the NetBackup and Media Manager daemons:

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

The pack install logs can be found in /usr/openv/pack/pack.history once the
installation is complete.

Maintenance Pack History
------------------------

This section contains an accumulative list of all Maintenance Pack information
contained in previous releases.

=============
NB_JAV_60_6_M
=============
Etrack Incident = ET1096255

Description:
When a drive from a back-level media server is deleted from the
NetBackup-Java Administration Console on UNIX and Windows, the wrong
drive can be deleted.

Workaround:
If the drive indices do not match between the NetBackup 5.x media server
and the NetBackup 6.x master server, the best way to reliably and safely
delete the drive is to use the following variation of tpconfig command
on the 5.x media server:

tpconfig -delete �drive -asciiname <asciidrvname>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1113358

Description:
Dissimilar Disk Restore (DDR) on Linux would fail under some rare
circumstances.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1066322

Description:
The "About Storage Administrator" version was incorrectly displayed as still
being "6.0". This pack updates it to "6.0 MP6".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1066330

Description:
The left pane of the Storage Migrator Reports GUI incorrectly displayed some
truncated choices (for example, "By File ..." instead of "By Filesystem").
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1067652

Description:
On the NetBackup-Java Administration Console, while configuring a
catalog backup policy on the Disaster Recovery tab, the password would
not be saved in change mode.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1039772
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1015931
Titan cases: 230-328-570

Description:
There was an issue when attempting to restore Shadow Copy Components
to a different location when using the NetBackup-Java Administration

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1026840

Description:
If a user opened the New storage unit dialog or the Change storage
unit dialog from the NetBackup-Java Administration Console in Windows
and UNIX, the device configuration information would not be cached.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1115060
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1101477
Titan cases: 240-570-206

Description:
The user interface is unable to retain changes to the UI layout when
running multiple versions of the NetBackup-Java Administration Console.

This occurs because all versions of the user interface store preferences
data at a common location ('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs'
on Windows and '~/.java/.userPrefs' on UNIX).

The user interface will now store preferences data at
%USERPROFILE%/Application Data/Veritas/java/{NB_RELEASE.EN_US} on Windows and
~/.veritas/java/{NB_RELEASE.EN_US} on UNIX.

Additional Notes:
Symantec recommends that you use "migrate.bat" to migrate existing
preferences from the registry to the file system. For UNIX, please copy
~/.java/.userPrefs/* to ~/.veritas/java/{NB_RELEASE.EN_US}/*.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1135357
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1018561
Titan cases: 290-695-012

Description:
The NetBackup-Java Administration Console had connectivity problems
with the NetBackup server in certain types of network environments.
To resolve this, the following configuration parameters have been
exposed in /usr/openv/java/nbj.conf (UNIX) or VERITAS\Java\nbj.conf
(Windows).

FIREWALL_IN [configures NAT address replacement]
-----------------------------------------------
It now supports regular expressions (* and ?) that enable you to
define dynamic (many-to-one) NAT address mappings. Previously, you
could only define static (one-to-one) mappings.

REQUIRED_NETWORK [configures multi network hosts]
------------------------------------------------
If any address in the profile does not belong to the REQUIRED_NETWORK,
it is discarded.

REQUIRED_INTERFACE [configures multi-homed hosts]
------------------------------------------------
This parameter enables you to specify the interface to be used by the
NetBackup-Java Administration Console for making outbound connections.

Symantec recommends that you use IP addresses and not hostnames while
writing FIREWALL_IN, REQUIRED_NETWORK and REQUIRED_INTERFACE values.

NBJAVA_CORBA_DEFAULT_TIMEOUT
----------------------------
This parameter can be used to change corba timeouts. Users should
specify a value in seconds. The default value is 60 seconds.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1137877
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1119852
Titan cases: 220-097-727

Description:
Changes were made to address performance issues with the following
areas of the NetBackup-Java Administration Console.

- Client Attributes listing in the "Host Properties" module for a
master server
- Client Attribute update in the "Host Properties" module for a
master server
- Storage Unit listing
- Rendering of the Create/Change/Copy Storage Unit dialog
- Robot listing
- Rendering of the Robot Properties dialog
- Rendering of the Robot Inventory dialog
- The Start Robot Inventory operation
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1173731

Description:
The NetBackup Administration Console for Windows would display an
error on the Processes tab in the Activity Monitor, when there were
multiple child processes for a daemon.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1179942
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1131280
Titan cases: 220-107-289

Description:
The NetBackup-Java Administration Console by default requests data
from the EMM server every 30 seconds. This would overload the EMM node
in some environments with multiple user interfaces running.

Changes have been made to decrease the load on the EMM server by
resetting the default refresh rates for the device monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




=============
NB_JAV_60_5_M
=============
Etrack Incident = ET591435

Description:
The Nearstore storage unit only allows backups to volumes where the
image mode of the backup that is being written matches other images
currently on that volume. The user interface would populate volumes
based on the type of selection. The selection of checkboxes would decide
which mode the backups to that storage unit would be backed up as. The
two checkboxes are "enable block sharing" and "enable file system export".
The possible combinations of checkboxes and what mode that combination
enables are :

- If neither box is checked - display volumes associated to "image mode".
- If the "enable block sharing" button is checked but the "enable file
system sharing" box is NOT checked - display the volumes associated
to the "SOI( Space Optimized Image )mode"
- If both the "enable block sharing" and the "enable file system export"
box are checked - display the volumes associated to the "file system
export" mode
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862198

Description:
Support was added to allow usernames with spaces in the "Authorization"
node of Host Properties.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862206

Description:
In the licensing user interface, the icons to indicate an Active or
Inactive state would appear intermittently.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862212

Description:
The jnbSA frame header would erroneously report Evaluation, even when
it is not an Evaluation license.

Additional Notes:
A false condition checking was being performed to determine if the
license is an Evaluation. This conditions has been corrected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862676

Description:
Dissimilar Disk Restore (DDR) mapping operations did not give the user
a disk selection of the desired disk if the original configuration
contained a slice that was more than half the disk in size and that
slice contained multiple SVM devices (database replicas and SVM volume).
The mapping operation works correctly for the database replicas because
of their small size, however it fails for the metadevice volume that
consumes the rest of the slice. This is on Solaris 9 client
configurations using SVM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862999
Associated Primary Etrack = ET808570

Description:
The Java user interface currently accepts passwords that contain only
UTF-7 characters. A change has bee added to allow usage of UTF-16
characters.

Workaround:
To avoid this issue, use a password policy that allows only UTF-7

from the master server had an internal host address that was not accessible
from outside systems.

This is the same when clients and other services are in question.

Additional Notes:
To activate NAT address replacement, systems outside of the firewall should
have the FIREWALL_IN parameter specified in their bp.conf/registry.

Format: FIREWALL_IN=hostname1,nat_address1|hostname2,nat_address2|...

Where: <hostname> is the name of the host system that needs to be accessed
and <nat_address> is the actual NAT address for the firewall to do
forwarding.

Etrack Incident = ET613049

Description:
The Nearstore storage unit will only allow backups to volumes where the
image mode of the backup that is being written matches other images
currently on that volume. The user interface would populate volumes based
on the type of selection.

The selection of checkboxes determines the mode that is used to backup to
a specific storage unit. The two checkboxes are "enable block sharing" and
"enable file system export". The following list describes the possible
combinations of checkboxes and what "mode" that combination enables:
- If neither box is checked:
Display volumes associated to "image mode".

- If the "enable block sharing" button is checked but the "enable file
system sharing" box is NOT checked:
Display volumes associated to "SOI( Space Optimized Image )mode"

- If both the "enable block sharing" and the "enable file system export"
box are checked:
Display volumes associated to "file system export" mode
