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

    -- NB_CLT_7.0.1_<6 digit number>.tar must be installed before 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 Release Update.

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_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.

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

To install this Release Update as root on the NetBackup 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 server Release Update automatically installs the
        client Release Update if the client (CLT) .gz file and the README exist
        in the installation directory. The server install fails if the (CLT)
        .gz file and the README are not present and the CLT update has not been
        previously installed. The client Release Update will NOT be installed
        automatically during a reinstall of the server Release Update.  

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

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

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

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



==========================
II. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
==========================

Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the Release Update from your local machine.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 the 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 update uninstalled successfully by checking:

    /usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

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

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