Post upgrade tasks for 3.1.1 upgrades

After the upgrade process has completed successfully, perform the following tasks as needed for your environment:

  • SDCS mode

    After an upgrade from 2.6.1 or 2.6.1.x, the Symantec Critical System Protection (SCSP) feature is renamed to Symantec Data Center Security (SDCS). This feature is set automatically to the unmanaged mode (default). After any upgrades from 2.7.x and later, the SDCS feature is set to the unmanaged mode. If the feature was set to the managed mode before these upgrades, make sure to change SDCS to the managed mode and apply the latest IDS and IPS policies after the upgrade has completed. For complete details, refer to one of the following documents:

    NetBackup Appliance Security Guide.

  • SDCS console and server

    Starting with software version 3.1, the SDCS console and the server are no longer included in NetBackup appliance software releases.

    For appliances that do not currently have an SDCS environment configured, you must obtain the console and the server binaries from the Veritas Support website before you can set it up.

    For appliances with an existing SDCS environment and console set up, you are only required to update the policy files and make sure that the SDCS agent points to the correct SDCS server. You do not need to obtain the binaries.

  • STIG feature

    If this feature was enabled before the upgrade, it must be re-enabled after the upgrade has been completed. For appliances (nodes) in an HA setup, you must re-enable the feature on each node after the upgrades have been completed.

  • Restart backups

    For appliance master server upgrades, restart all jobs and Storage Lifecycle Policies (SLPs) that were stopped or paused before the upgrade.

    For appliance media server upgrades, after all appliance media servers have been upgraded, restart all jobs that were stopped before the upgrade.
