============================
I. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
============================


There are two ways to install database agent Release Update software.

1.  Remote Installation:  Loads the software on a master server with
   the intent of pushing database software out to affected clients.

2.  Local Installation:   Loads and installs the software only to this
   local machine.

---------

Remote Installation:

NOTE: NB_CLT_6.5.6 must be installed on affected clients prior to installing
     this Release Update.

As root on the NetBackup Master/Media server:

1. Install the Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

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

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

3. Run update_dbclients to push the software to the affected database agent
  clients. For more information on how to run update_dbclients, refer to the
  NetBackup for Informix System Administrator's Guide.


-------------

Local Installation:

Warning:  Before installation - If production Informix scripts are found in
the /usr/openv/netbackup/ext/db_ext/informix/scripts, please save them
in another location to prevent them from being overwritten.


As root on the NetBackup for Informix client:

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 Informix, ensure that the database
    services are stopped.

2) Install the Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

  Pick option 2, Local Installation, when prompted.

  You can find the Release Update install logs in /usr/openv/pack/pack.history
  after the installation is complete.

3) Make sure links and permissions are set up properly by running:

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/informix_config




==========================
II. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
==========================
1)  Close the NetBackup user interfaces.

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

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

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

3)  Run the un-install script:

         ./NB_update.uninstall

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

5)  Only if the Release Update was originally pushed to remote clients using
   update_dbclients, re-run update_dbclients after the Release Update was
   successfully uninstalled on the server to "push" the uninstall.
