=========================
I. DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS
=========================
1) Download the NB_CLT_45_9S2_M_<6 digit number>.tar into the
/tmp directory,

where <6 digit number> is an internal tracking identifier

NOTE: NB_CLT_45_9S2_M_<6 digit number>.tar contains all client
binaries.

2) Extract the NB_CLT_45_9S2_M_<6 digit number>.tar file
tar xvf NB_CLT_45_9S2_M_<6 digit number>.tar

This will create the files:
VrtsNB_CLT_45_9S2_M.README
VrtsNB_CLT_45_9S2_M.tar.Z
VrtsNB_CLT_45_9S2_M.postuninstall
VrtsNB_CLT_45_9S2_M.postinstall

II. KNOWN ISSUES
=================
There are no known issues with this pack.



===============================
III. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
===============================
There are two ways to install the client pack software.

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

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

Remote client install:

As root on the NetBackup Master/Media Server:

1) Install NB_45_9S2_M and NB_CLT_45_9S2_M pack binaries.

cd /tmp
/bin/sh Vrts_pack.install

2) Restart daemons.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/initbprd
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/ltid -v

3) Update the NetBackup clients, including the NetBackup master and media
servers, with the update_clients script.

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

where <hardware> <os> is one of the following:
ALPHA OSF1_V4
ALPHA OSF1_V5
DataGeneral UNIX
HP9000-700 HP-UX11.00
HP9000-800 HP-UX11.00
INTEL FreeBSD
Linux RedHat2.2
Linux RedHat2.4
MACINTOSH MacOSXS1.2
MACINTOSH MacOSX
NCR UNIX
RS6000 AIX4.3.3
RS6000 AIX5
SCO UnixWare
Sequent DYNIX420
SGI IRIX65
Solaris Solaris2.6
Solaris Solaris7
Solaris Solaris8
Solaris Solaris9
Solaris Solaris_x86_2.6
Solaris Solaris_x86_7
Solaris Solaris_x86_8

Remember to include the master server's <hardware> <os> type.

Note: The /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients command without
any parameters will update all the UNIX clients.

Note: When updating an RS6000 client, there may be circumstances
where update_clients will fail with an error similar to
this:

Couldn't open /usr/openv/lib/libVmangle.so on client
Client open errno = 26

If this happens, execute /usr/sbin/slibclean on the client
to be updated and re-run update_clients.

If the client (CLT) .Z file and README exist in the installation directory
during the installation of the server pack, the Vrts_pack.install script will
install the client pack automatically. The client pack will NOT be installed
automatically during a reinstall of the server pack.


Additional Notes:

If non-root administrators use the GUI only, the nonroot_admin
script no longer needs to be run. If the non-root administrators
use the command line or bpadm, the group and file permissions
will have to be changed manually on the NetBackup binaries.
Users can writer their own script. The script is being phased
out because there is a slight security risk that non-root users
may be able to execute NetBackup commands only because those users
are part of a group that is allowed to execute NetBackup commands.

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

Local client install:

The install script will determine if a local client install is appropriate
and choose the appropriate client type to install.

As root on the NetBackup client:

1) Install NB_CLT_45_9S2_M pack binaries.

cd /tmp
/bin/sh Vrts_pack.install


===========================
IV. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
===========================
Note: This will ONLY uninstall the pack from your machine if the client pack
software was installed remotely (i.e. software was pushed from a
NetBackup Master Server), this uninstall procedure will NOT work with
local client installations.

As root on the NetBackup Master/Media Server in which the pack 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} in the following command:

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

3) Run the un-install script:

./Vrts_pack.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/goodies/netbackup start

ET542264 ET542270 ET542500 ET546394 ET542260

Description:
Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been identified in daemons
that run on Veritas NetBackup master, media, and client servers. An
attacker, if able to access a vulnerable Veritas NetBackup server and
successfully exploit these issues, could potentially execute arbitrary
code resulting in possible unauthorized and elevated privilege access to
the targeted system.

For more information relating to this vulnerability notification, refer to
TechNote 281521 on the Symantec Support web site.
