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:

As root on the NetBackup Media/Master server:

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 Lotus Notes, 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.

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

----

Local Installation:

As root on the NetBackup for Lotus Notes 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 Lotus Notes, 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.




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

       If a database agent is being used, such as Lotus Notes,
       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 perform this step if the Release Update was originally pushed to
   remote clients using update_dbclients.  Please run update_dbclients
   after the Release Update was successfully uninstalled on the master server.
