 Appliance Platform

The NetBackup 5000 and 5200 series appliances are Symantec defined platforms of hardware, firmware and software.  This includes driver revisions, OS levels and patches of all devices or software components.  There are no modifications allowed without the express instructions of Symantec Technical Support.  Modifications to the appliance in any fashion without express instructions from Symantec Technical Support will void warranty and result in an unsupported configuration.

 


Patches

Additionally, the only supported patches that may be applied to the NetBackup Appliances are the appliance-specific patches at the following link
 
Applying PureDisk or NetBackup patches that are not specifically released for the appliance will result in a compromised and unsupported configuration.
 
 

Interoperability

Every NetBackup appliance software release is a SUSE Linux-based version of PureDisk or NetBackup.  Unless otherwise noted, the appliance has the same compatibility with other agents or products as the underlying PureDisk or NetBackup Product. 

For example, a NetBackup 5200 v2.0.2 Master/Media Server appliance (based on 7.1.0.3) has the same compatibility with another NetBackup, PureDisk or Backup Exec host as a non-appliance 7.1.0.3 Master/Media Server unless otherwise noted.




Master/Media Server Compatibility


Hardware Compatibility

See the "NetBackup Appliances" section in the NetBackup Hardware Compatibility Lists for additional compatibility information, such as supported Tape Drives for the 52xx series and supported agents for the 50xx series.
  
See the Related Article linked below for supported use of a specific alternate GBIC and copper cabling on 10Gb Ethernet ports.
