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


As root on the NetBackup for Vault 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 Oracle, ensure that the database
    services are stopped.

2) Install the Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

3) The NB_update.install script will prompt you to restart daemons.
  Otherwise, after the Release Update installation has completed, run:

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.start_all

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




==========================
II. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
==========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the Release Update from your local machine.

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 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.

   INSTALLED, run it again after that Release Update is successfully
   UNINSTALLED.

   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.start_all
