Issue



A hotfix for this issue for NetBackup 7.0.1 can be found attached to this document.

Licensed features (such as Vault and BMR Management) are not available in the Windows Admin console after upgrade to 7.0.1.  This includes OpenStorage disk pools and storage server credentials for PureDisk and MSDP disk pools.

This issue occurs because the first time the license keys are validated as active, and the second validation fails and sets the keys to invalid which prevents the console from displaying the feature that is licensed. 

Additionally, options that are *not* licensed may appear unnecessarily.
