PACK DEPENDENCIES
=================

   -- NB_CLT_7.0.1 (this Release Update) can be installed on a standalone
      NetBackup client using a remote installation procedure or a local
      installation procedure.
   
   -- Only on a NetBackup server, NB_7.0.1_<6 digit number>.<server>.tar
      must be installed after this Release Update is installed.

   -- Installation of this Release Update requires version 1.39.2.3
      of the NB_update.install script.

 

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


Before installing this release update, please review the following items:
 - Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups before and after you
   apply this maintenance pack.

 - If upgrading a NetBackup client on which this Release Update has been
   installed to a NetBackup server, you must first uninstall this Release
   Update, perform the upgrade from client to server, then re-apply this
   Release Update to the new server.


To install this Release Update in a UNIX Cluster Environment:
1) Before you install this Release Update, make sure that NetBackup is at
  release level 7.0 and configured to run in a cluster.

2) Offline the cluster by following the procedures outlined in the
   "NetBackup High Availability Guide."

3) Freeze the cluster by following the procedures outlined in the
   "NetBackup High Availability Guide."

4) Install this Release Update on the inactive node(s) of the cluster first.
  (Perform the steps in the, "To install this Release Update as root on the
   NetBackup Server" procedure).

5) Install this Release Update on the active node of the cluster.
  (Again, perform the steps in the, "To install this Release Update as root
   on the NetBackup Server" procedure).

6) Unfreeze the cluster by following the procedure outlined in the "NetBackup
  High Availability Guide."

7) Online the cluster by following the procedures outlined in the
   "NetBackup High Availability Guide."


8) If the cluster is in a faulted state, clear the fault.

  NOTE: A directory "NB_CLT_7.0.1" is created in the cluster shared directory.
        This directory stores files that will be needed during an uninstall.
        Do not remove it.

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


There are two ways to install the client release update software.

1. Remote Client Installation:  Loads the software on a NetBackup server with
   the intent of pushing client software out to affected clients.

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

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

To install this Release Update remotely as root on the NetBackup Master/Media
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 NB_7.0.1 and NB_CLT_7.0.1 Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

  NOTE: Selecting the client Release Update on a Master/Media server will
  automatically install the server release update if the server (NB) .gz file
  and README exist in the installation directory. The client install will fail
  if the (NB) .gz file and README are not present and the server pack has not
  been previously installed. The server release update will NOT be installed
  automatically during a reinstall of the client release update.  

  NOTE: The installation of the client pack on a server copies the appropriate
  client binaries into place on the server.  Additionally, any other client
  binaries on the server will be updated so that they can then be pushed out
  using update_clients.  Therefore, Symantec recommends that you also apply
  the NB JAV release update before running update_clients.  If other client
  binaries are installed after applying this release update, this release
  update needs to re-run to patch those other client binaries.

  NOTE: It is important that Server and Client binaries are kept at the same
  release level on all NetBackup Servers.  This is enforced by the install
  process.


3) The NB_update.install script prompts you to restart the daemons.  Otherwise,
  after the pack installation has completed, run:

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

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

4) Update the remote NetBackup clients with the update_clients script.

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients <hardware> <os>

       where <hardware> <os> is one of the following:

HP-UX-IA64/HP-UX11.31
HP9000-800/HP-UX11.11
INTEL/FreeBSD6.0
Linux-IA64/RedHat2.6
Linux-IA64/SuSE2.6
Linux/IBMpSeriesRedHat2.6
Linux/IBMpSeriesSuSE2.6
Linux/IBMzSeriesRedHat2.6
Linux/IBMzSeriesSuSE2.6
Linux/RedHat2.6
Linux/SuSE2.6.16
MACINTOSH/MacOSX10.5
RS6000/AIX53
Solaris/Solaris10
Solaris/Solaris9
Solaris/Solaris_x86_10_64


      Note: The /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients command without
            any parameters updates all the UNIX clients.
           
  If the client (CLT) .gz file and README exist in the installation directory
  during the installation of the server release update, the NB_update.install
  script installs the client release update automatically. The client release
  update will NOT be installed automatically during a reinstall of the server
  release update.  


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

To perform a Local client install this Release Update:

NOTE: The install script determines if a local client install is appropriate
     and chooses the appropriate client type to install.

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


2) Install NB_CLT_7.0.1 Release Update binaries.

      cd /tmp
      /bin/sh NB_update.install

NOTE:  Again, Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups after you
have applied this maintenance pack.




==========================
II. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
==========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the release update from your machine if the
      client release update software was installed directly on the machine.
      This uninstall procedure will NOT work on clients that were installed
      by pushing the software from a server.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To uninstall this Release Update in a UNIX Cluster Environment:

1) Freeze the cluster to prevent failover during the uninstall.

2) Uninstall this Release Update on the inactive node(s) of the cluster first.

3) Uninstall this Release Update on the active node of the cluster.

4) If the cluster is in a faulted state, clear the fault.

5) Be sure to uninstall both client and server updates on each node before
  proceeding to the next step.

6) Unfreeze the cluster.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


As root on the NetBackup Master/Media Server in which the release update was
installed:

   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 pack name for ${PACK.EN_US} in the following command:

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

   3)Run the un-install script:

         ./NB_update.uninstall

   4)Verify that the pack uninstalled successfully by checking:

       /usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

   5)If update_clients was run after the pack was originally INSTALLED,
       run it again after that pack is successfully UNINSTALLED.

   6)If necessary, restart the NetBackup and Media Manager daemons:

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