NetBackup 7.5 upgraded to NetBackup 7.6
The Job Manager job parameter file format has been changed in order to support new job-related product functionality.
Backup From Snapshot jobs or Index From Snapshot jobs that you run after an upgrade to 7.6 require that the initial SLP-managed snapshot Job Manager parameter files have been converted successfully. If the parameter files have not yet been converted, Backup From Snapshot jobs or Index From Snapshot jobs may fail.

Note: Please send these renamed files to NetBackup support for analysis.
If you are not upgrading from NetBackup 7.5, you can ignore any reported conversion failures. For any NetBackup upgrade to version 7.6 or later, the Job Manager job parameter files will be read in order to detect if conversion is needed. Conversion is only needed for the specified SLP-managed snapshot job types, so any reported conversion errors on upgrades can be ignored if the source version is not NetBackup 7.5.
