Symantec recommends that the backing up of active file systems be avoided,
or the use of snapshot technologies be implemented. The directory structure
reported back from the file system (to NetBackup) may not contain all of the
files available during the time of backup. NetBackup will not report errors
in many cases where the file's existence is not known to NetBackup as reported
by the file system.

II. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
==============================
NOTE: For Feature Pack installation on Microsoft Cluster Environment:

- Install this Feature Pack on the inactive node(s) of the cluster,
performing Steps 1-4 below.

- Use the MSCS move group command to 'failover' the server to another node.
This should be done when the NetBackup system is quiet, that is, no
backups or restores are running.

- Install this Feature Pack on the newly inactive node of the cluster.

- (Optional) Use the MSCS move group command to 'failover' the server back
to the original node.

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

Installation steps:

NOTE: If upgrading a NetBackup Windows 4.5 FP8 client to server or
Administration Console, the 4.5 Feature Pack must be uninstalled
prior to upgrading to 4.5 server or Administration Console.

1) Close all NetBackup Windows.
Make sure the NetBackup server system is quiet and has no active backups,
restores, duplications, etc., running. If there are NetBackup activities in
process, the Feature Pack will not install if the file to update is busy.

If a database client is being used, such as Oracle, ensure that the
database services are stopped. Database services can be stopped by
using the Control Panel -> Services tool. Repeat this process until
all databases have been stopped. These services must be restarted
once the patch is successfully installed.

2) Run Setup.exe. (Double-click on the icon from File Manager or Explorer
or run it from the command prompt.)

Setup.exe begins by stopping the appropriate NetBackup Services required
for the Feature Pack installation. Next, it will install the necessary
files into their correct locations. Finally, Setup.exe will restart the
appropriate NetBackup services.

3) Examine the <install_path>\patch\History.Log file to ensure that no
errors took place during the installation, for example, an error during
Feature Pack installation because of a busy file.

4) Remove the temporary directory created in the download instructions.

restores, duplications, etc., running.) If there are NetBackup activities

database services are stopped. Database services can be stopped by
using the Control Panel -> Services tool. Repeat this process until
