Downloading the AMS and agent updates for earlier versions

The Appliance Management Server (AMS) and agent updates are included with NetBackup appliance software release 3.1.2. Additionally, these AMS and agent updates (AMS/agent version 1.2) can now be downloaded separately as a management update package. If you are using NetBackup appliance version 3.1.1 as an AMS, you can download this management package to get the latest updates. The management update package must be installed on the 3.1.1 AMS. This can help you update the AMS and agent versions without a need to upgrade the appliance software version on the AMS or agents.

After you update the AMS, the agents that are added to the AMS can be updated automatically or manually. The procedures for updating the AMS and agents are listed in the following sections:

See Managing AMS updates.

See Performing automatic or manual agent updates.

You can view the AMS and agent version from the Home page of the Appliance Management Console. These are listed in the AMS/Agent version column. The AMS/agent version that is included with appliance software 3.1.2 is version 1.2.


Agents with version 3.1.1 that use a version 1.2 AMS can be updated by using the management update package. Agents with earlier appliance versions like 2.7.3, 3.0, or 3.1 are not supported.

The following table lists the AMS/agent version that is included with the corresponding appliance software version.
