Maintenance Pack Installation/Uninstallation Instructions for Solaris
=============================================================
* To install this maintenance pack on Solaris, follow these steps:

 CAUTION: If applying the maintenance pack to the Server, both the
          Server and the Agent (if installed) will be stopped during
          the update.
 
 CAUTION: If applying the maintenance pack to the Agent, it will be
          stopped during the update.

 CAUTION: There is no way to reverse updates to the database once
          made.  A database backup is recommended.

 NOTE: Any files being updated will be backed up into a zip file
       in the component's installation directory.  The file name
       will include the time of the update.  For example, if
       updating a server installed to the default location at
       3:10 PM on March 20, 2007, the following backup file be created.

       /opt/VRTSccsvs/pre_hotfix_6.0.1639.1_20070320_1510.zip

 NOTE: There will be a prompt before any action is taken.

 NOTE: If a component is not detected correctly, its directory
       can be manually entered into locations.conf.  See that
       file for details.

 1. Run ./vbr-mp

 2. Follow the prompts, and choose 'y' when prompted to update
    each component.

* To uninstall this maintenance pack on Solaris, follow these steps:

 CAUTION: Once the database has been updated, the server maintenance
          pack should not be uninstalled.  If a database backup was
          made, stop the server and restore it before
          uninstalling the maintenance pack.
 
 NOTE: The server should be stopped before uninstalling.

 NOTE: The agent should be stopped before uninstalling.

 1. Stop the main service for any component being uninstalled.

 2. Replace files in the installation directory with those
    backed up in the zip file.

The following issues are fixed in this maintenance pack:

820734 NBU Agent Module: Storage Unit name is returned as UNKNOWN.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
856730 Missing Dollar Sign on Tabular Reports in MP1
972326

Workaround:
In Veritas Backup Reporter cost reports, the default currency shown
is only in dollars ($). This technical issue has been mitigated in
the 6.0 MP1 version. You can now change the default settings to
specify your own currency.
To manually change the default currency settings, do the following:

1. In the application.properties file, change the default values
of locale.country and locale.language parameters as required.
For Windows 2003, the default location for the
application.properties file is as follows:
C:\Program Files\Symantec\Veritas Backup Reporter\Server\web
\vbr\WEB-INF\classes\resourceBundle
2. Save the new settings.
You can specify a currency either as ISO 4217 code or symbol.
For example:
Scenario 1:
If you want to set your currency to € (symbol for Euro), do the
following:
1. In the application.properties file, set the value of
locale.country parameter to FR (locale.country = FR).
2. Set the value of locale.language parameter to fr
(locale.language = fr).

Scenario 2:
If you want to set your currency to EUR (ISO 4217 code for Euro),
do the following:
1. In the application.properties file, set the value of
locale.country parameter to FR (locale.country = FR).
2. Set the value of locale.language parameter to en
(locale.language = en).

New Configuration:
By using the Tape Library Capacity functionality, you can know the
total capacity of a tape library, in a NetBackup (NBU) environment.

The NBU Agent Module collects the slot count information from all
Media Servers connected to a Master Server. If the number of Media
Servers is high, there can be a significant drop in the performance
of Veritas Backup Reporter. You can correct this situation by
disabling the collection of the slot count information. However, if
you have not collected the slot count at any point of time, reports
do not show the correct Tape Library Capacity data, as the Tape
Library Capacity depends on the slot count.

Total Library Capacity = Slot Count x Maximum Used Media Size

To be able to get the exact Total Library Capacity without dropping
the performance, you can collect the slot count information for once
and then disable it as follows:
1. In the VBR console, click Settings -> Global Settings ->
Agents -> Agent Module configuration page.
2. While creating or modifying a NetBackup Agent Module, in the
Module Variables section, from the Library Capacity
drop-down list, select Disable.
3. Click Save.
