Upgrades to NetBackup 7.6 are supported from any release since NetBackup 6.0. However, some of the functionality that was introduced in NetBackup 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 is not present in the NetBackup 7.6 GA release. The difference in functionality is limited to bug fixes and a small set of features.
The following list describes the various upgrade paths that Symantec recommends:
- If you are currently running NetBackup 188.8.131.52 or earlier, your upgrade path is to NetBackup 7.6 GA.
- If you are currently running NetBackup 184.108.40.206 and you do not use Amazon S3 cloud storage buckets in regions other than US Standard, your upgrade path is to 7.6 GA.
- If you upgrade to NetBackup 220.127.116.11 or you are currently running version 18.104.22.168 with Amazon S3 cloud storage buckets in regions other than US Standard, your upgrade path is to NetBackup 22.214.171.124.
