================================================================================
This Maintenance Pack provides fixes for Veritas NetBackup (tm) UNIX servers.
NetBackup UNIX Add-on products, Database Agents, and the Java Interface have
separate Maintenance Packs.

The UNIX CLT pack, which is required to be installed with this server pack,
contains a full replacement of all client binaries for all platforms.  The local
CLT binaries for this server may require as much as 50MB of free space in the
/usr partition to install, depending on platform.  If client binaries are being
loaded on a server to be pushed to clients, as much as 400MB of free space may
be required in the /usr partition.

On AIX, installing this UNIX server pack requires more than 1.2GB of free space
in the /usr partition. For more information, please refer to the following

PACK DEPENDENCIES
=================

    -- NB_CLT_60_5_M_<6 digit number>.tar must be installed before this
       Maintenance Pack is installed.

    -- Only if Bare Metal Restore is installed,
       NB_BMR_60_5_<6 digit number>.<platform>.tar must be installed after
       this Maintenance Pack is installed.

    -- Installation of this Maintenance Pack requires version 1.33.10.14
       of Vrts_pack.install script.

    -- This Maintenance Pack contains runtime updates to Veritas Private
       Branch Exchange (PBX). If you did not install PBX from a NetBackup
       6.0 media kit (GA or 6.0MP4), you may have an older version of PBX
       from another Veritas Product.  This Maintenance Pack requires that
       you have a minimum PBX level of 1.2.2.41.  If you have an older version,
       you must install 1.2.2.41 from a NetBackup 6.0 media kit.  You can
       determine your PBX version from the /opt/VRTSpbx/build_version
       file.  Newer versions are compatible with this Maintenance Pack.

    -- Deliverables for the agents or options such as DB2, Oracle, Veritas
       Storage Migrator (tm) (VSM) do not always change between patches and
       could result in a patch not being delivered.  When upgrading or patching
       client software, any agent software must be upgraded or patched to the
       latest or matching level at the same time as the client software.

    -- Added support for multiple ACSLS servers to Windows.  This requires
       all Windows ACS customers upgrade to SUN/STK Libattach version 1.4.1.

The following information describes the upgrade and downgrade rules or scenarios
that apply to this maintenance pack.

- Upgrade scenarios:
   The NetBackup 6.0 MP5 maintenance pack install:
     - Can be applied on top of NetBackup 6.0 GA or any 6.0 MPx (prior to MP5).
     - Cannot be applied directly to a NetBackup 5.x system. You must install
       NetBackup 6.0 GA first.
     - Cannot be applied directly to a NetBackup 6.0 MP5 Beta system. (The
       Beta version of NetBackup must be uninstalled first.)

- Downgrade scenarios:
   If the NetBackup 6.0 MP5 maintenance pack is uninstalled, you will roll
      back to the version you had previously installed prior to installing
      this maintenance pack, (such as 6.0 GA or 6.0 MPx).


====================================
I.  PRIMARY MAINTENANCE PACK UPDATES
====================================
This section identifies the primary changes, maintenance updates, and
enhancements that are contained in this maintenance pack.  

- This maintenance pack contains the following software upgrades:
 - JRE 1.4.0.2v, which adds many security fixes for JAVA
 - Sun Libattach version 1.4.2 for ACS robotics
 - Veritas Unified Logging (VxUL) to 1.3.7.2

- All SIG components have been added and/or upgraded in this release:
 - VxUL
 - VxPBX
 - VxPSP
 - VxAT and VxAZ
 - VxSched

- The following database proliferations and enhancements have been added
 to this pack:
 - Added NetBackup for DB2 support (DB2 v9) on 64-bit x86 Windows
   operating systems.
 - Added Oracle support for Windows 2003 x64. (Oracle 10gR2 for Windows x64)
 - Providing x64 (AMD64/EM64T) support for SAP on the x64 Windows client.
 - Added support for the HP-UX IA-64 platform to the Sybase package
   (HP-UX 11.23 IA-64 - Sybase 12.5).
 - With this maintenance pack, you can now compress Oracle and MSSQL
   dataBases for backup.
 - Provide the ability to restart a single failed MSSQL DB backup without
   having to restart a full backup.

- Added new device and library support for the following:
 - ACSLS - Titanium T1A, T9840C/D, DLT-S4
 - New device supported for WORM
 - New media and drive type for LTO4
 - New library support - Panasonic/Matsushita AJ-CM100 Library

- There are many customers today who have multiple data centers and move
 backup data between the centers by shipping backup images and copying or
 replicating the image database. This feature removes one of their most
 problematic steps for retreiving the data, changing copy number. They use
 this data for both Data Recovery (DR) and production.  

 As more of users employ DR plans and now practice DR drills, the number
 of users requiring the ability to restore from a non-primary copy at
 their DR site is rapidly increasing.

 DESCRIPTION:
 Add a new option to bprestore:
    bprestore -copy X
 The copy number will need to be passed to bprd, so a new protocol will
 need to be defined.

- The following enhancements have been made to Flashbackup:
 - Support of up to 16 Terabytes.
 - Support for Instant Recovery

- NetApp has a ShadowTape capability in their NearStore VTL. When virtual
 media is ejected, NetApp makes a copy to a physical tape drive. However,
 instead of deleting the image from their VTL, the copy is "hidden" from
 NetBackup. A script has been added that will notify the appliance that
 there is a request to restore from the ejected (hidden)media and will
 mount the media on the VTL instead of the physical media.

- Support has been added to allow fail over to NearStore storage units to
 a different NetApp filer that had been mirrored using NetApp's Volume Snap
 Mirror technology.

- The new Single Instance Store (SIS) feature in Windows 2003 R2 Storage
 Server extends SIS functionality to non-Remote Installation Service (RIS)
 systems and multiple volumes.  Changes contained in the pack ensures that
 NetBackup protects RIS systems as well as the "first" SIS volume encountered
 during backup.

- Changes have been added that allow Instant Recovery of Windows FlashBackup
 using "Retain snapshots for Instant Recovery" on a policy.

- If a backup has terminated and if you do not want to repeat a complete
 backup again, you can use the new command, BRBACKUP option -f / -fill. The
 BRBACKUP command automatically determines the files that are still to be
 backed up. If BRBACKUP is run with the -f/-fill option and the log name of
 the failed job, it automatically checks which files were backed up
 successfully and which failed and then starts a new job only for files for
 which last backup failed.

- A new touch file has been added that enables you keep a TIR information
 files longer than 10 days (<install path>/netbackup/TIR_INFO_KEEP_DAYS)

- An enhanced MFC VxLogView application enables you to create views of both
 legacy and VxUL logs for Windows x86 systems. This application is located
 in the goodies directory as, -lv.exe.

- In the PureDisk web user interface, a policy can now be created or a run
 once job can now be executed to export the backup data in chosen data
 selections to NetBackup storage.  Once the data is exported into NetBackup
 it will be treated like a "normal" NetBackup image and will be restored
 like a regular file.

NOTE: Symantec recommends that you refer to the NetBackup 6.0 Operating System
     Compatibility Matrix for the latest information regarding supported
     features:
        http://entsupport.symantec.com/menu_ddProduct_NBUESVR_view_CL.htm

       VrtsNB_CLT_60_5_M.postuninstall
       Vrts_pack.install



==================
III.  KNOWN ISSUES
==================  

-  The Veritas Private Branch Exchange (PBX) software is installed along with
  Veritas NetBackup (tm) 6.x.  By default, PBX logs messages to the system log
  /var/adm/messages or /var/adm/syslog.  This can cause additional system
  logging that the system administrator may not desire.  The messages written
  to the system logs contain the same informational and warning messages that
  are written to the PBX logs.  For more information about this issue or
  informaiton on how to disable the option, refer to the following TechNote on
  the Symantec Support Web site.

  http://support.veritas.com/docs/280746

- Changes were made to the Vault Operator Permissions.  The Vault Operator
 permissions are as follows:

 - Host Properties permissions:
      Browse and Read
 - Job permissions:
      Browse, Read, Suspend, Resume, Cancel, Delete, Restart, and New
 - VolumeGroup permissions:
      Browse, Read, New, and Delete
 - VolumePool permissions:
      Browse and Read
 - DevHost permissions:
      Browse and Read
 - Media permissions:
      Browse, Read, New, Delete, Eject, Move, UpdateBars, Assign, Deassign,
      UpdateDatabase, and Expire
 - Report permissions:
      Browse and Read
 - Robot permissions:
      Browse, Read, Inventory, New, and Delete

-  On all platforms, if the server pack install fails for any reason after the
  Client pack has completed, be sure not to restart daemons before
  retrying the pack installation.

-  Reminder: Synthetics is not supported on Tru64 platforms.

-  The NetBackup 6.0 Commands document contains some incorrect information for
  the bplist command.  The following accurately explains this command.  

   The bplist command shows a list of previously archived or backed up files
   according to the options that you specify. You can choose the file or
   directory and the time period that you want the listing to cover.
   Directories can be recursively displayed to a specified depth.

   The bplist command shows only the files that you have read access to.  It
   lists the files only if a user backup is performed by the user owning the
   files (that is, an administrator account). A non-administrator or backup
   operator cannot bplist the files. You also must own or have read access to
   all directories in the file paths. You can list files that were backed up
   or archived by another client only if you are validated to do so by the
   NetBackup administrator.

   If you create the following directory /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/bplist/
   with public-write access, bplist creates an debug log file in this
   directory that you can use for troubleshooting. The output of bplist goes
   to standard output.


Issues that are associated with an ETrack number:
-------------------------------------------------
ET1018914 Discrepancy in Windows and UNIX Activity Monitor for an NetBackup
         Access Control (NBAC) Vault Operator (vltop) user group.

         Changes have been to the NBAC Vault_operator user group to ensure
         proper functionality of the Activity Monitor for the Windows and
         UNIX platforms.

IV. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
=============================
** The content of this online Readme supersedes the information in the Readme
contained in the download. **

NOTE: Click on the "Download Now" link, near the bottom of this document
prior to running the following installation procedure for this pack.

Before installing this maintenance pack, please review the following items:
 - Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups before and after you
   apply this maintenance pack.

 - If you are planning to install this Maintenance Pack as a part of an
   upgrade from a 5.x release then it is important that you understand that the
   existing NetBackup databases must be in a consistent state prior to beginning
   the upgrade. Information and tools to assist you in determining the current
   state of your database, as well as instructions to help you address any
   inconsistencies that you might discover can be viewed on the NetBackup Upgrade
   Portal, a part of the Symantec NetBackup Support Web site.

     http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/support/overview.jsp?pid=15143

 - If you are upgrading from 5.x to 6.0, you must install this Maintenance Pack
   before you run nbpushdata.  Failure to install this Maintenance Pack first
   will result in a failed upgrade.

 - On AIX, do not use a NetBackup GUI running on any other host to monitor the
   NetBackup jobs/processes/daemons/devices on the host being patched during the
   installation.  On AIX this may cause text busy errors to occur during the
   installation.  The safest approach is to not have any GUIs running on remote
   systems which are accessing an AIX host during pack application.


For Maintenance Pack installation on a UNIX Cluster Environment:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) Before you install this Maintenance Pack, make sure that NetBackup is at
  release level 6.0 and configured to run in a cluster.

2) Freeze the NetBackup group. (By freezing the group, you will prevent a
  'failover' from occurring during a patch installation).

3) Install this Maintenance Pack on the inactive node(s) of the cluster
  (perform steps 1 through 3 below).

  IMPORTANT: If you are using HP Service Guard and upgrading from a
  pre-NetBackup 6.0 MP4 version, you must complete the installation of
  this pack to the inactive node(s), and then copy the following file from
  an inactive node to the active node before beginning the pack install on
  the active node:

  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/cluster/util/monitor

4) Install this Maintenance Pack on the active node of the cluster (perform
  steps listed below).

5) If the cluster is in a faulted state, clear the fault.

6) Unfreeze the NetBackup group.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


As root on the NetBackup Master Server:

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) Install NB_60_5_M and NB_CLT_60_5_M Maintenance Pack binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh Vrts_pack.install

  NOTE: Selecting the server Maintenance Pack will automatically install the
  client maintenance pack if the client (CLT) .Z file and the README exist in
  the installation directory. The server install will fail if the (CLT)
  .Z file and the README are not present and the CLT pack has not been
  previously installed. The client maintenance pack will NOT be installed
  automatically during a reinstall of the server maintenance pack.  

3) The Vrts_pack.install script will prompt you to restart daemons.
  Otherwise, after the pack installation has completed, run:

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

4) The pack install logs can be found in /usr/openv/pack/pack.history once the
  installation is complete.

NOTE:  Again, Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups after you
have applied this maintenance pack.



=========================
V. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
=========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the Maintenance Pack from your local machine.

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 the 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 necessary, restart the NetBackup and Media Manager daemons:

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup start

=============
Current pack
=============

================================================================================
Etrack Incident = ET644656

Description:
   Backups to FSE-enabled Nearstore storage units require TIR to be enabled on
   the policy. A change was made to enforce this requirement at run time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET809090

Description:
   If you were using vxlogview along with options –d and –t, vxlogview should
   have accepted these options in any order, but it did not.  The –d option
   displays debug messages, and the –t option displays the most recent
   messages.  These are not related options, however, vxlogview did not honor
   the –t option if it was listed after the –d option. A change was made to
   correct this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET828552

Description:
   Changes were made to this maintenance pack to update the PBX and ICSCO pbx
   merge modules.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET605200

Description:
   UNIX domain socket files with path names of the form /tmp/vnet*
   were periodically created on UNIX/Linux NetBackup systems.  Most
   of these files were only needed for a few minutes and were quickly
   deleted.  If NetBackup processes terminate abnormally before the
   /tmp/vnet* file can be deleted, then these files could accumulate
   on the user's system.
   
   This patch periodically deletes old (more than one hour) /tmp/vnet* UNIX
   domain socket files.
   
   Previously the Java server (bpjava) would also use UNIX domain socket file
   paths of the form /tmp/vnet*.  Since these files often need to exist for
   several hours, the automated cleanup could cause problems.  In this patch,
   the form of the bpjava UNIX domain socket file path names has changed to
   /tmp/jbp*.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861571

Description:
   Under certain circumstances, bpcd and vnetd services would be
   put into maintenance mode on solaris10 systems.  Changes were
   made to disable/enable these services to make sure they respond.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861550

Description:
   If the NBDB database is not created properly during installation, the
   install continues, however the user may not understand that there was
   an issue creating the database.  As a result, the user may encounter
   errors in the command line and the user interfaces.  
   
   In addition, if during a patch installation that nbnd_upgrade fails,
   the database winds up with the incorrect version.  Again, nbemm will
   not start because of the version mismatch.
   
   Changes have been made so that the install will fail if the database
   cannot be created or upgraded and installation warnings will be logged
   in a new logging directory for nbnd commands.  The new directories are:
   
   UNIX:  /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/nbdb
   Windows:  InstallPath\NetBackup\logs\nbdb
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862411

Description:
   Made a change to unload tapes in a more timely manner on back-level media
   Servers (for example, NetBackup 5.x).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862341

Description:
   Added support for 64-bit Linux on Power client.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862518

Description:
   Changes were made to fix potential memory leaks, while fetching pending
   requests from the NetBackup Resource Broker.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862534

Description:
   Calls to emmlib_GetStorageUnitHosts no longer result in segmentation
   violations.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862464
Associated Primary Etrack = ET791864

Description:
   Changes were added that prevent bpsynth from hanging on patched, Solaris 10
   systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862606

Description:
   Changes have been made to ensure that all Chinese messages that are suppose
   to appear in the Bare Metal Restore (BMR) command line interface (CLI)
   output appear, no matter what locale is used.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863136
Associated Primary Etrack = ET863127

Description:
   On a busy UNIX NetBackup server, you may encounter defunct
   bpcompatd processes that may appear at any time.  These defunct
   processes will eventually be cleaned up, but it might some time.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, periodically, stop and restart bpcompatd:
   
   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcompatd -terminate
   /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpcompatd
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863123
Associated Primary Etrack = ET863120

Description:
   A condition existed when the bprd service on the master server connected to
   the hosts in its SERVER list and started a process on those servers to
   remove old debug log files.  If a host was in the MEDIA_SERVER list but not
   in the SERVER list on the master server, bprd would not contact that host.
   A change was made to ensure that bprd connects to hosts in both the SERVER
   list and the MEDIA_SERVER list on the master server to remove old debug
   log files.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863150

Description:
   NetBackup’s Release Broker's logging has been improved in the following
   manner:
   
   - The total amount of logging content has been reduced.
   - The messages that are displayed have been enhanced to be more meaningful.
   - Different debug levels are used for different purposes.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863199

Description:
   The SRCMEDIAID & DSTMEDIAID fields of the jobs database were not being
   written to.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861965

Description:
   In some cases, when a request for a volume pended, the NetBackup-Java user
   interface and vmoprcmd -xdpa would display an error when asked to show the
   pending action.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863314

Description:
   The patch level of the (remote) client was wrong when Windows was configured
   in the environment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861709
Associated Primary Etrack = ET701050

Description:
   Network issues would cause tldd connect timeout issues that would result in
   downed drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861712 ET861714

Description:
   Changes were made to ltid that corrected the following issues:
   -  ltid would stop and report the following message if it received a message
      that were larger than 208 bytes.
         Arg list too long
   -  Occasionally, ltid would not continue to run at startup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET803746

Description:
   Using the -i option for vmchange command resulted in an incorrect error
   message that would indicate to users that this function is not implemented
   in NetBackup Enterprise Media Manager (EMM).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863393
Associated Primary Etrack = ET863378

Description:
   Backup duplication errors would occur because of a timeout issue that caused
   bptm to exit with 54 and 25 errors.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   bpduplicate finishing (on Tru64 systems only).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862491

Description:
   The nbpushdata log files are now written to the following locations:
   
   /usr/openv/var/nbpushdata (UNIX)
   VERITAS\NetBackup\var\nbpushdata (Windows)
   
   Log files are not pruned from these directories, so the files are available
   for later review.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863106

Description:
   The MEDIA_UNMOUNT_DELAY is not honored consistently for standalone drives.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, ensure an eligible tape is loaded in the drive before
   You start a job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864928

Description:
   A backup job would hang in the bpbrm process after the client read timeout
   expired.  The job would not finish and a 41 status (network connection
   timed out) error would occur.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865189 ET842864
Associated Primary Etrack = ET833467

Description:
   Changes were made to enhance the performance and speed in which the list of
   media servers would appear after a user selects Host Properties > Media
   Servers from the NetBackup-Java Administration Console.  The slow response
   was caused by the following command, which would return the external
   attribute settings for each media server.
   
   vmoprcmd -h <server_name> -extall
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET852905 ET850830
Associated Primary Etrack = ET832181

Description:
   Changes were added to solve various issues in the Device Configuration
   Wizard with respect to back-level media servers.  In addition, a change
   was made that solves a device configuration wizard defect that prevented
   users from reconfiguring standalone drives as robotic.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861980

Description:
   Corrected a tape drive cleaning issue where the end user running the
   NetBackup Administration Console on a UNIX server could not successfully
   clean a tape drive using a path on a Windows server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865211 ET645838
Associated Primary Etrack = ET645838

Description:
   A status 50 error would be shown in the Activity Monitor if a user tried to
   perform a large duplication that was greater than 20 minutes.  Similar
   issues were reported in earlier versions of NetBackup.  Smaller duplications
   were not a problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865184

Description:
   Some languages use a comma, instead of a period, to delimit the fractional
   portion of a floating point number.  If the default language is set to one
   of these language, some operations might fail.  Specifically, any time a
   floating point parameter is passed to the EMM server database it will
   reject a floating point number delimited by a comma, instead of a period.
   
   One example of this is attempting to change or set the cleaning frequency
   of a drive.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, change the decimal point character from a comma
   to a period ('.').  This can be done by modifying the locale or switching
   to a different locale, such as US English.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865706

Description:
   This maintenance pack contains multiple NB_SECURITY infrastructure changes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862283

Description:
   Changes were made to correct the following issues with the nbemmcmd command.
   - The nbemmcmd -getemmserver command would not always get the NetBackup
         version.
   - The nbemmcmd -setemmserver command would try to set the EMM server on
         machines that were not in its domain.
   - The nbemmcmd -setemmserver command would not set the EMM server of a master
         server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865792

Description:
   nbVersionNumber() would not return a zero (0) when there was an error
   attempting to get the version number from the client.  However, in certain
   cases this does not happen.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET783403

Description:
   The status collector daemon that NetBackup uses to monitor device and host
   status for back-level media servers has been logging /vm/debug/reqlib.
   This has made debugging for traditional media manager command lines
   difficult.  This change introduces a new media manager debug directory
   /vm/debug/vmscd.  This makes it much easier to obtain debugging information
   for both vmscd and the media manager command lines.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863402

Description:
   A change was made to ensure the nbemmcmd -listmedia command prints out the
   number of mounts, as well as the maximum mounts.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863433

Description:
   The message a user would receive when adding a host that already existed in
   database was invalid hostname. A change has been made to correct this
   message.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET847915
Associated Primary Etrack = ET820303

Description:
   A change was made so that a READY standalone drive was not marked as
   NOT-READY during a cold catalog backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863427

Description:
   bpmedialist now uses EMM to build the host list instead of using the storage
   unit list.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET866829

Description:
   Queuing jobs could not be canceled from bpdbjobs command.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863413

Description:
   A change was made to the nbemmcmd -help command.  It now
   returns an exit status of 0 instead of an error status.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET866997

Description:
   If the NetBackup Request Daemon (bprd) terminated a backup before the
   NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (nbpem) was invoked, the terminated
   backup job may be reported with a "queued" status forever.  This could
   occur if a backup was initiated by the bpbackup command line and it
   referenced an unwritable progress log file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET569130

Description:
   If the NetBackup Request Daemon (bprd) terminates a backup before the
   NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (nbpem) is invoked, the terminated
   backup job may be reported with a "queued" status forever.  This can
   occur if a backup is initiated by the bpbackup command line and it
   references an unwritable progress log file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865243

Description:
   If the NBDB database is not created properly during installation, the
   install continues, however the user may not understand that there was an
   issue creating the database.  As a result, the user may encounter errors
   in the command line and the user interfaces.  
   
   In addition, if during a patch installation that nbnd_upgrade fails, the
   database ends up with the incorrect version.  Again, nbemm will not start
   because of the version mismatch.
   
   Changes have been made so that the install will fail if the database
   cannot be created or upgraded and installation warnings will be logged in
   a new logging directory for nbnd commands.  The new directories are:
   
   UNIX:  /usr/openv/netbackup/logs/nbdb
   Windows:  InstallPath\NetBackup\logs\nbdb
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865850

Description:
   Erase job failures would occur because NDMP drives were being selected for
   erase jobs.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, down NDMP drives to prevent NetBackup from selecting
   them for erase jobs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865186

Description:
   If you use the "Configure Multiple Copies" option before any storage units
   are defined the following error message appears.
   
        "Not all storage units are on the same media server"
   
   A change was made to the message to correctly indicate that no storage units
   exist.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET893223

Description:
   When a server is configured to e-mail from the client after
   a successful backup, the bpbrm process would hang and would
   not exit because of an e-mail problem on the client.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET846230

Description:
   A change was made to resolve an issue that caused NetBackup Release Broker
   (NBRB) to crash randomly while performing a cold catalog backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET895177

Description:
   A change was made to resolve an issue that caused NetBackup Policy
   Execution Manager (NBPEM) to crash because of a shutdown during
   clean_media_db operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET895170 ET895172

Description:
   Changes were made to address scalability issues with NBPEM because
   unnecessary computations were being performed of the "jobs due" time.
   In addition, the internal queue management was a single thread to
   handle multiple queues.  This caused long waits to process requests on
   some queues.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET834075

Description:
   Improvements were added to the CPU utilization by bprd during restore
   operations of a large numbers of files.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862350

Description:
   Jobs may queue instead of fail when all drives are down or not available
   because of an onDemandOnly setting.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, cancel the queued jobs if there is no possibility of
   them getting drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET858772

Description:
   Installer will verify that PBX service is running before attempting a server
   patch install, and it will start the service if necessary.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862424

Description:
   Messages were added to the NetBackup log whenever media is
   frozen/unfrozen/suspended/unsuspended.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862425

Description:
   A message has been added to the client log when the operator is about to
   request a media that may be standalone.  This message warns the operator
   that they may need to manually load the requested media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862427

Description:
   If a multiplexed job stopped during a tape span (on a standalone drive) the
   Media Database for the next tape used would be incorrect, enabling this
   tape to be used again and cause data to be overwritten.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862428

Description:
   Added a change to address the latest SCSI standard that changed a device
   response to a Test Unit Ready command when the device is SCSI Reserved to
   another initiator.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862430

Description:
   Added support for Quantum/Certance Ultrium 3 drive with WORM media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862431

Description:
   Some tape drives on HP_UX would not perform an erase operation
   from NetBackup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862441

Description:
   Canceled jobs no longer cause a future job to hang during a media mount.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET413285

Description:
   A change was made to endure that timestamps were included in
   the cluster agent debug.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET841107

Description:
   During a synthetic backup job, one of the source images for the synthetic
   may expire.  If this happens, when the bptm or bpdm reader attempts to
   read the image, it will experience a "no entity found" error from the
   catalog.  The bptm reader fails.  For this particular case, the reader will
   enter a code that causes it to hang up indefinitely.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET847324

Description:
   Duplicate forms of the .ds file may be created as part of the NetBackup 5.x
   to NetBackup 6.x upgrade process that cause bptm or bpbrmds to crash.
   For example,
   
   beany_1162489194_C1_F1.ds.info
   beany_1162489194_C1_F1.ds.1162489194.img
   beany_1162489194_C1_F1.ds.1162489194.info
   beany_1162489194_C1_F1.ds

Workaround:
   Normally, NetBackup perceives a .img and .info file as one "file" to its
   I/O layer.  There is a special compatibility mode that enables it to see
   the extra .ds and its .info file as the same file in the previous pair.
   
   To avoid this issue, remove one of the pairs, preferably the .img file and
   its .info file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896802
Associated Primary Etrack = ET798913

Description:
   An issue would occur when children jobs were retired due to exceeding the
   time allowed in an incomplete state.  The parent job, being resumed either
   manually or automatically, resulted in an Frequent status code 805 error
   because the invalid jobid was -1.
   
   A change was added that prevents the child from starting since it is not
   resumable.  The new result will correctly be a 200 error if no children
   can be started.  An indication of this will be written to the policy
   execution manager (pem) log.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET862590
Associated Primary Etrack = ET862589

Description:
   Added the capability to open UNIX progress logs that are non-blocking.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860837
Associated Primary Etrack = ET834130

Description:
   Jobs would not be retried until all jobs associated with the parent job were
   complete.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860882
Associated Primary Etrack = ET845081

Description:
   Restarting a job that was originally an immediate backup, may cause streams
   of a different schedule type to be run.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET894249

Description:
   NBJM was not forwarding the connect options to bpbrm.  On a NetBackup 6.0
   media server, bpbrm is able to obtain the connect options.  Whereas on a
   NetBackup 5.x media server, the connect options must be specified using the
   command line.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET847976

Description:
   If a synthetic backup job failed to get the requested resources, no
   messages were displayed in the job details to explain the cause of a
   job that appeared to be hung.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860264
Associated Primary Etrack = ET860276

Description:
   There was insufficient logging information provided when a
   catastrophic failure occurred while accessing the UNIX
   configuration (bp.conf).  In addition, no re-try would be
   attempted for such a failure.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860844
Associated Primary Etrack = ET860273

Description:
   Changes were made to resolve status 200 errors that occurred when a parent
   job started when children were left active because PEM terminated or a
   crash of a generic job occurred.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860853
Associated Primary Etrack = ET858810

Description:
   A change was made so that jobs no longer wait for resources after the window
   is closed .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860856
Associated Primary Etrack = ET860266

Description:
   A change was made to address an issue that caused backups to fail with an
   800 status.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET854621

Description:
   Resolved an issue that caused scheduled, cold-catalog backups to not start.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860879

Description:
   Resolved an issue that caused PEM to run an incremental schedule instead of
   a full schedule.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET899176

Description:
   Near the completion of a Synthetic backup, the following error message would
   intermittently be issued to the Activity Monitor:
   
   Error ACEMsgTran::handleOutput_u (pid=28968) write failed
   from OUTPUT socket, errno=9(Bad file descriptor)
   
   This error did not affect the successful completion of the backup, but it
   did indicate a problem.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET592677
Associated Primary Etrack = ET808108

Description:
   A change was added that resolves a segmentation fault that could occur while
   performing Teradata backups on Linux platforms.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431952

Description:
   This maintenance pack contains an enhancement that enables encryption for
   Teradata backups.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET866750

Description:
   The nbpushdata -modify_5x_hosts command now sets the standalone volume
   database host to the EMM server on NetBackup 5.x hosts without standalone
   drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET899837
Associated Primary Etrack = ET865853

Description:
   There was a memory leak in the NetBackup Release Broker (nbrb) that caused
   the memory utilization of nbrb to go very high after duplication/synthetic
   jobs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860860
Associated Primary Etrack = ET856242

Description:
   The message queue between bprd and pem would fill up if the request to pem
   was invalid.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET849248
Associated Primary Etrack = ET846190

Description:
   Changes were made to resolve memory issues on immediate and user-backup
   requests.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Deleting a cluster node no longer leaves invalid references.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET856478

Description:
   The bptm -updatedb command would swap the number of images and the number of
   valid images when inserting the data into the EMM database.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET855644

Description:
   A change was made to resolve a possible stack overflow issue that would
   cause a system crash.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET850303

Description:
   There is a timing issue with bringing the cluster online and running
   runtpext. Bringing the cluster online (which can be slow), has an
   adverse affect on the runtpext custom action that requests ltid.exe and
   vmd.exe to be bounced.  On some clustered NetBackup systems that have a
   large number of devices (tape drives and robots) this can hang the
   cluster install.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, go into the Windows Task Manager and kill both the
   "ltid.exe" and "vmd.exe" processes.  The install will then continue and
   complete successfully.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET895259

Description:
   Added support for PureDisk export to NetBackup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET850034

Description:
   Changes were made to ensure that the device configuration analyzer utility,
   mmcrawl, is working.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863440

Description:
   A change was made to ensure the nbemmcmd -errorsdb command no longer causes
   a core dump on 64-bit machines.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861373
Associated Primary Etrack = ET901494

Description:
   Switches have been added to nbemmcmd to allow the use of a different
   emmserver than those listed in the configuration.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863437

Description:
   Formatting is now correct for strings on Windows x64 systems.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET794493
Associated Primary Etrack = ET777908

Description:
   A restore would fail following a tape span due to attempting to position
   to file number "0".  The bptm logs show that a "STOP RESTORE" was received
   for a restore that was already complete during the tape mount.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET792615
Associated Primary Etrack = ET781425

Description:
   bpjobd script would hang sporadically causing the user to manually restart
   to view the job monitor.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864935
Associated Primary Etrack = ET821288

Description:
   If the client for a multiplexed backup could not be contacted, the job would
   take nearly twice as long as to timeout.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET419594

Description:
   Added a new touch-file (/usr/openv/netbackup/IGNORE_ACL) on UNIX client
   machines to not back up ACLs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET594838

Description:
   On HP-UX clients, NetBackup now treats cifs file system mount points
   as NFS rather than local.  Therefore, policies with ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES
   specified will no longer back them up.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET614569

Description:
   True Image Restore Plus (TIR+) backups currently delete any
   TIR information files that are 10 days old or more.  Symantec
   added a new touch file for UNIX clients to set the number of
   days to keep the TIR information files.  The default will
   remain 10 days, but that can now be set to a value higher
   than 10 if desired.  In addition, setting this value to 0 (zero)
   makes NetBackup never delete old TIR information files.
   
   The touch file is called /usr/openv/netbackup/TIR_INFO_KEEP_DAYS.
   Simply put an integer value in this file that represents the
   number of days to keep the TIR information files.  Numbers that
   are less than 10 will set the value to 10 (other than 0).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET406353

Description:
   Multi-streaming with wild-cards and NEW_STREAM directives would not
   process correctly.    
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864177

Description:
   The deletion of an application cluster would fail if there were storage
   units (STU's) associated with it.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, delete storage unit first.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET853592

Description:
   An archive job may complete with the following error:
   
      "EXIT STATUS 3: valid archive image produced, but no files
       deleted due to non-fatal problems"
   
   This is an issue in the underlying operating system and not
   NetBackup. This patch detects the condition and takes the
   additional steps necessary to handle it.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, the user may manually remove the backed up
   files after the archive completes. Note that care must be taken
   not to remove files that are created or modified after the start
   of the archive job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET917548
Associated Primary Etrack = ET901564

Description:
   If a window closes while a multiple data streams backup has children queued,
   the resume of the parent may produce a 200 error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET803831

Description:
   Executing a bpps -a command on a RedHat 5.0 system would produce
   the following NetBackup processes:
   
     tail: cannot open `+2' for reading: No such file or directory
     tail: cannot open `+2' for reading: No such file or directory
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET918511
Associated Primary Etrack = ET860790

Description:
   Changed Policy Execution Manager to log failure history message as an
   informational message to avoid adding it to the error log report.  Also log
   failure history message based on failure history threshold (default
   12 hours) instead of using the policy update interval (default 10 minutes)
   thus reducing the number of entries logged.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, increase the policy update interval threshold from
   the default of 10 minutes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860802
Associated Primary Etrack = ET850162

** Description:
   The disk storage unit (DSU) staging did not maintain a retention level on

   If nbemm is down and NOM connects to NBSL, then NBSL would
   crash.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET764809
Associated Primary Etrack = ET764804

Description:
   On Linux clients, raw partition backups of raw devices would
   fail with a status 6 error when compression was enabled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET860288
Associated Primary Etrack = ET857531

Description:
   Policy Execution Manager would stop processing manual backup jobs when
   house keeping was performed (bptm delete_expired). The worst case
   scenario was when the media server could not be reached.  The Policy
   Execution Manager would then wait for the time out
   (CLIENT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT)to be exceeded before moving on.
   
   Changed the Policy Execution Manager to start a third nbproxy which
   processes only clean media database (db) commands to avoid a delay of
   manual backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET914057

Description:
   A problem existed that caused an error status on user backups to sometimes
   return a 236 error when a 199 error was expected.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET867927

Description:
   When using the bpsetconfig command to implement bp.conf entries for a
   client, if stdin was used, the list could not exceed 1023 bytes.  If
   the list did exceed 1023 bytes, the entire list was ignored and the
   update failed.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use the command with the filename as a parameter
   and everything will work properly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET919129
Associated Primary Etrack = ET848190

Description:
   When Multiple Data Streams, DHCP and Windows Open File Backups (WOFB’s) are
   enabled, jobs end with 48 status.  To resolve this issue, the generic job
   (nbgenjob) was changed to only pass a -hostname option if DHCP is enabled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET853612

Description:
   The parent job would exit with a status 50 before starting any children.  To
   Resolve this issue, the parent job (nbgenjob) was changed to ping the job
   manager as soon as possible after startup instead of waiting three minutes.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET832007

Description:
   Logs were unclear on what the problem was when database operations were
   performed on un-assigned media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET845150

Description:
   The machine update code has been updated so it no longer allows machines to
   have invalid parent keys.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET591318

Description:
   NetBackup now checks the file list to validate that UNIX
   file paths begin with a "/" character.  This will also
   catch cases where extra characters are added to directives
   (for example, "ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES;").
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Added support for failing over NearStore storage units to a different NetApp
   filer that had been mirrored using NetApp's Volume Snap Mirror technology.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET919043

Description:
   A job that was configured to use a storage unit group, failed with a
   status 129. The job details for a retry gives the appearance that it
   retried the job with the STU from the previous try. In reality, all of
   the STUs in the group were queried for the best possible candidate.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET838968

Description:
   This maintenance pack contains new versions of ACE and TAO libraries. These
   libraries contain fixes for race conditions and other problems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864163

Description:
   A change was made so that nbrb no longer sends "bptm -rptdrv" to an
   inactive node in a cluster.  In addition, the output of the
   nbemmcmd -listhost command has been changed.  The description of
   machine type for emmserver has been changed from "server" to
   "emmserver".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896185

Description:
   When you log in on a node of master in cluster environment, the "Add STU"
   operation did not show all of the available media servers.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, log in using a virtual (cluster) name.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET901549
Associated Primary Etrack = ET857094

Description:
   During testing, an active duplicate job was noticed in the Activity
   Monitor. The job had a status 150 message in detailed status and it was
   still at attempt 1. Its children appeared dead. (No activity in since
   12:47 and they were being displayed as active).  
   
   The parent seemed active. It was not only displayed active but it was
   doing a tape mount around 18:30. It had received a status 150 around
   12:47 pm.

Workaround:
   To avoid this situation, you can wait until the job state is active and
   then cancel it.  This will cause it to die correctly.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET849073

Description:
   Canceled mount/unmount requests would cause future unmount requests to hang
   in BPTM.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET901476

Description:
   Changes were made to keyword handling of user backups from
   NetBackup 5.0 to 6.0.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET814657

Description:
   A backup job would potentially hang if bpbrm received a 174 error (media
   manager - system error occurred) prior to receiving a "media ready"
   indication from bptm.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519708

Description:
   The Perform Snapshot Backup option in Policy dialog should be disabled if
   the Block level increment (BLI) is selected.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET922508
Associated Primary Etrack = ET854626

Description:
   During multiplexed backups, multiple retention levels could be added to a
   media, even if it was not configured to be allowed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515830

Description:
   The SSO_SCAN_ABILITY option was not being used and has been removed to avoid
   confusion.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET819221
Associated Primary Etrack = ET797322

Description:
   Pegasus Software Drives on Windows did not work in NetBackup 6.0 as Disk
   Storage Units.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET855357

Description:
   NetBackup Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) was using the wrong directory when
   checking for a disk full condition that affected the NetBackup Relational
   Database (NBDB).  If a mirrored transaction log was created, EMM was
   checking the location of the main transaction log only.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET922513
Associated Primary Etrack = ET896030

Description:
   FlashBackup restores would sometimes produce 252 errors when done with a
   short file list.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865177
Associated Primary Etrack = ET864919

Description:
   Freeze scratch media that was found to have a Recorded Volume Serial Number
   (RVSN) was not expected.  Users must use bplabel to correct this problem
   and make the media useable again.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET850088

Description:
   Policy Execution Manager no longer passes unlocalized status descriptions
   in the error database.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET848632
Associated Primary Etrack = ET841558

Description:
   A fix was added so that nbgenjob no longer fails with status 25
   and nbpem no longer receives a status 50 after a multi-streaming
   job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET858227

Description:
   NetBackup-Java Administration Console Device Configuration wizard now
   correctly updates the Robot Type of drives that are detected as stand
   alone but drag-dropped by user to a robot.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865805

Description:
   On Windows systems, the Vault reports were not being localized.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896510

Description:
   A change was made to correct an issue that was causing code to appear in a
   progress log.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896531

Description:
   A change was made to correct a core dump issue that occurred from vmdareq
   when it was run from a command line with no switches.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896568

Description:
   The words "handling path" were not being recorded in the \db\error\ logs
   file.  The All Logs Entry and the bperror command both mine their results
   from the \db\error\ logs and the words "handling path" could be used to
   determine if the correct data is being backed up.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET916389
Associated Primary Etrack = ET863109

Description:
   Changes were added to resolve an nbpem core dump that would occur after a
   successful backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863396

Description:
   NDMP backup fails when TIR data spans tapes.  This failure occurs only for
   NDMP local or NDMP 3-way (backup to an NDMP drive).  

Workaround:
   Rerunning the backup to a different media will likely work since it is
   unlikely that tape spanning will occur during TIR data. (This is because
   the TIR data is usually a fraction of the size of the backup image itself.)
   
   Another approach is add the following line to the file
   <installdir>/netbackup/db/config/ndmp.cfg
   
      NDMP_MOVER_CLIENT_DISABLE
   
   Adding this line will have a minimal impact on backups. However it will
   cause a significant performance impact to dup/verify/import when using
   NDMP drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777981

Description:
   nbpemreq would fail if a large time value was passed to the nbpemreq
   predict option.  If you specified a number that exceeded a long value
   for the command, nbpemreq -predict -dateu <timevalue>, the results
   would be undefined.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET821317

Description:
   A misleading error status 48 (client hostname could not be found) may be
   applied to a job if a communication problem occurred between the media and
   the master server.  A typical cause of the problem was an expired license
   on the media server.  In this case, the error status should have been 161
   (Evaluation software has expired.)  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET828730

Description:
   In a rare situation, a FlashBackup job could not be cancelled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET852018

Description:
   Changes have been made to reduce the performance overhead when sending mail
   to a client after a backup job completes.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET896769
Associated Primary Etrack = ET923399

Description:
   The pem logs report a scheduled backup (SB) job type as an immediate (IB)
   backup job type after a failed immediate backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864933

Description:
   On Windows media servers, restores from disk in some cases would potentially
   read unneeded data instead of skipping it, which could affect performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET805992

Description:
   In some cases, hot catalog backup would report success even though the
   ASA backup was either not successful or conditionally successful.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET924798
Associated Primary Etrack = ET860296

Description:
   Callers to bpdbm make unnecessary licensing checks that could lead to
   misleading error messages.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET923799

Description:
   With NetBackup running under NetBackup Access Control (NBAC), authorization
   checks were skipped for some operation of corba daemons.  This could have
   enabled an unauthorized user to perform some privileged operations.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET924345
Associated Primary Etrack = ET856266

Description:
   Jobs that were due to start, would not start if JobDefinition::checkDueness
   took more than one second.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET901028

Description:
   Changes were made that enable you to now use "./bpnbat -login -info" on
   Linux systems.

Workaround:
   You can also use bpnbat in interactive mode by using just the -login option.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778927

Description:
   A master could be renamed to a pre-existing media server.  However, the
   logs were recording the wrong name if a machine was renamed to a
   pre-existing machine.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET417907

Description:
   When vmquery was used with a prefix containing '_', the char '_' was used
   as a wild card character and an out of order media id could be given.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831182

Description:
   The message, "database backup is currently disabled," appeared in the
   Problems report even when a scheduled hot catalog backup was configured.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET924482

Description:
   The parent key could be incorrectly set when adding a node of a cluster.
   The parent key of a media server could be incorrectly set if node of master
   cluster was given instead of cluster name.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET534073 ET534196 ET569931 ET592599

Description:
   The following Windows updates have been added to this maintenance pack:
   -  Updated the support utility nbsupport to version 2.1.2
   -  Updated the Windows support utility nbsupport.exe to version 2.1.2
   -  Updated the Windows support utility nbsu_win_cmds.exe to version 2.0
   -  Added the Windows support script fs
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET864934

Description:
   A duplication may have been reported as successful if a defective tape
   drive incorrectly reported a tape mark on the read operation, followed
   by an I/O error.  This maintenance pack detects this error condition.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET803724

Description:
   Catalog recovery from a hot catalog backup failed if Bare Metal Restore
   (BMR) was installed but not configured and/or running at the time of the
   hot catalog backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET648727

Description:
   Added a new Automated Cartridge System (ACS) vendor for media and drive
   types.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET616381

Description:
   In NetBackup-Java Administration Console, inventory of a robot attached to
   a cluster node resulted in volumes being added with the cluster node as the
   robot control host and not the virtual host name.  This behavior has been
   changed to make the virtual host name as the control host. Doing this
   avoids potential problems in inventory if a cluster fails over to a
   different cluster node.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET916378
Associated Primary Etrack = ET915043

Description:
   The bpdbjobs timestamp output is no longer truncated for STARTED and ENDED
   fields.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET830327

Description:
   Access failures to the Activity Monitor were occurring for the
   Domino-partitioned, server backup reports file (exec.nbf).
   However, the bpbrm log would exit with a Status 0.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET895584
Associated Primary Etrack = ET786448

Description:
   NetBackup for Lotus Notes parses all the paths in the
   LOTUS_NOTES_PATH variable to determine the Lotus program
   directory.  The first path in the LOTUS_NOTES_PATH variable
   in which "bin/server" is present is treated as a Lotus Program
   directory.  If any other path (for example, the Lotus data
   directory) which is present in the beginning and "bin/server",
   exists in that path then it is misinterpreted as Lotus program
   directory. This causes the backup to fail with a status 9 error.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, enter the path of the Lotus program
   directory in the beginning of LOTUS_NOTES_PATH variable.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET842011

Description:
   bpmedialist could not be killed from the Activity Monitor successfully.
   A change was made to ensure the correct program name is being passed from
   bpmedialist to the job manager (JM).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET639038

Description:
   A correction was made to ensure the vulnerability test for
   bprd (Vuln_bprd.tst) no longer generates a core dump issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET925564

Description:
   The "bpdbm –consistency 2" command was removed from the
   list of commands that nbsupport runs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET926712

Description:
   A small memory leak in Policy Execution Manager when processing change
   events has been corrected.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET926721

Description:
   Changed the Policy Execution Manager to pass the locale attributes correctly
   to the job manager instead of setting them all to lctype.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET852018

Description:
   Changes were made to address some small performance issue due to unnecessary
   string duplications in the Policy Execution Manager when mailing client
   status upon job completion.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498723

Description:
   In the event that a shared standalone drive is updated to be robotic, other
   hosts that share this drive will also be updated to robotic.  If the robot
   is not configured on any of those hosts, however, this results in an
   illegal configuration.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, manually create robotic entries or only use the Device
   Configuration wizard.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET926699
Associated Primary Etrack = ET925811

Description:
   When drives are selected for NDMP restores, NetBackup media servers are
   preferred over NDMP tape servers that are not local to the NDMP host being
   restored to.  

Workaround:
   If a media server has drives with paths to both NetBackup and NDMP servers,
   you should down the NetBackup paths before initiating the restore.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET852171

Description:
   The EMM server does not reject a client-provided media_id such as, '------'.
   This is not a regression. The NetBackup 5.x behavior was exactly the same.

Workaround:
   This issue is a client application error when such a name comes is used.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET851125
Associated Primary Etrack = ET793484

Description:
   In some instances a job would receive an incorrect 24 status (socket write
   failed) instead of the correct 84 status (media write error).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET846076

Description:
   An incremental hot catalog backup would fail with a 190 error if the master
   server name configured in the hot catalog backup policy differed from the
   currently active master server name where each name is a valid name for the
   host.  This would occur if the long name was used in the policy, but the
   short name was being used in the bp.conf file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863389

Description:
   Duplication of NDMP image fails when using non-NDMP drives.
   
   This problem only occurs when the duplication is using the shared memory
   method (SHM) method.  In NetBackup 6.0, this happens for any NDMP backup
   that used MM (non-NDMP) drives (also known as, "Remote NDMP"). In addition,
   this happens if an NDMP image is duplicated to a non-NDMP drive and then
   the duplicated image is duplicated.
   
   The progress log shows the following error:
       ERR - Unable to create data socket to receive TIR data.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, disable the shared memory method by adding the
   following touch file:
       <installdir>/netbackup/NOSHMDUP  

Additional Notes:
   This problem has been fixed in this maintenance pack, such that all
   duplications of NDMP backup images using non-NDMP drives will now use
   the shared memory method.
   
   (This problem was solved by disabling shared memory method for all
   NDMP images in the NetBackup 5.1 maintenance packs.)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET828441

Description:
   NetBackup relational databases would not be restarted when a cold catalog
   backup was canceled.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET930028

Description:
   A hot catalog backup parent job no longer fails with a status 818 error
   (retention level mismatch).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET893639 ET417284

Description:
   When NetBackup is clustered, NOM would show the wrong information about
   services and media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET583036

Description:
   Restoring a Lotus database link no longer results in a loss of data.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET922076

Description:
   When a database link is restored on UNIX platform, it is restored with the
   size of the original database it was pointing to when the backup was taken.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET865713

Description:
   Under NBAC, 'bpnbaz -setupsecurity' could fail silently, potentially
   compromising the desired access control hierarchy.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET854649

Description:
   The shutdown and startup of the NetBackup relational databases, NBDB and
   BMRDB, will be logged to the NetBackup error log.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET928712
Associated Primary Etrack = ET897092

Description:
   NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) could take a long time to unload drives,
   or fail to unload drives because the media servers all had multiple
   endpoints, many that were on unreachable networks.
   
   For example, an unreachable network would take about 225 seconds to
   fail on Solaris, and some callbacks would take about 10 to 15 minutes
   to iterate all failed endpoints.
   
   A change was added to the endpoint selection algorithm so that if
   there is at least one endpoint that matches the server list, it will
   only attempt those endpoints that match the server list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET927755
Associated Primary Etrack = ET926665

Description:
   On some Windows machines, any Firewall_in bpconf configuration would report
   as "Malformed Firewall_in line" in the VxUL log files, and rendered the
   NAT translation feature as not operational.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET926704
Associated Primary Etrack = ET926503

Description:
   If a user backup submits a very large number of files, PEM may cause a
   memory fragmentation and possibly a crash.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, reduce the file list size by specifying directories
   instead of individual files.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET857478
Associated Primary Etrack = ET838788

Description:
   NetBackup currently treats all read-only HFS file systems
   on Mac OS X as CD-ROMs and disallows the backup.  This
   change allows the backup of mounted read-only file systems
   that are not CD-ROMs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515549 ET933307

Description:
   The CIsActive function that is loaded from the NBClusterConfig.dll failed on
   64-bit systems.

Additional Notes:
   The use of VCS API calls, which did not support 64-bit platforms in the
   past, have been removed.  IsActive simply tests if the shared disk resource
   is on the current system to determine if it is the active node.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET932016 ET988979 ET1002606

Description:
   Buffer overflow areas have been identified and corrected in daemons that
   run on Veritas NetBackup master, media, and client servers. Successful
   access to a vulnerable Veritas NetBackup server and the ability to
   successfully execute arbitrary code could potentially result in
   unauthorized access with elevated privilege on a system.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET932003

Description:
   A change was added to resolve a possible memory corruption issue in the
   legacy DA process (vmd on EMM server).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET927553
Associated Primary Etrack = ET924626

Description:
   Fixed an issue that caused bpbkar to hang on Linux systems if it encounters
   an NFS mount point when the NFS server is down.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, add the NFS mount point to the exclude list for the
   client.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET854810

Description:
   By using the bprestore command (/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bprestore) it is
   now possible to restore an image using a non-primary copy.  

Workaround:
   In addition, you can use the bpchangeprimary command
   (/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpchangeprimary) to change the primary
   copy of the image.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533389

Description:
   For a True Image Restore (TIR) that is larger than 2GB, the following error
   would occur when reading the TIR information.
   
      Error occurred reading TIR information, expected -2103963310 bytes, read
      2191003986
   
   The bpdm log would show the following:
   
      11:03:32.958 [20388] <16> read_data_tir: ERR - Error occurred reading TIR
      information, expected -2103963310 bytes, read 2191003986
   
      2191003986 is the size of the TIR file -

      devnfs2-bkup_1135889406_C1_TIR.1135889406.img
   
   The problem only occurred, when the TIR file was larger than 2GB.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET863133

Description:
   A fix was added so that a hot catalog recovery from a hot catalog backup to
   a new master server name no longer fails.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET925227
Associated Primary Etrack = ET922389

Description:
   When the client name is in upper case, a Windows backup uses WOFB even
   though the clientDB entry disables the WOFB.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, use the same case for client name in client
   database and policy database.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET895746

Description:
   The renewal of a machine credential issued by a non-root authentication
   broker no longer fails.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET932264
Associated Primary Etrack = ET893298

Description:
   An issue existed that would sometimes cause a job to run on the exclude day
   even if a frequency scheduling of 24 hours was used.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET829853

Description:
   FlashSnap Instant Recovery rotation would fail on Linux
   because of a bprd request popen failure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET855922

Description:
   Catalog archiving would fail intermittently with the following message:
   
   bpcatarc: failure running catalog archiving backup policy: the specified
   policy is not active (247)

Workaround:
   This problem was observed with a mis-configured /etc/hosts file, which
   caused excessively long DSN lookups.  To avoid this situation, configure
   the /etc/hosts file to avoid long DSN lookups.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET796521
Associated Primary Etrack = ET704676

Description:
   A backup job would fail with a status 130 when a client path
   exceeded 1023 characters.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, add the long directory path to an exclude
   list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET893368 ET893377 ET893379

Description:
   If a Catalog Cleanup operation is kicked off in the middle
   of a Hot Catalog Backup, the operation may clean up expired
   image catalog entries that were given to the Hot Catalog Backup
   in its file list, causing the Hot Catalog Backup to finish
   with a partial success.
   
   Changes have been made so that a Hot Catalog Backup now completes with
   success status of 0. In addition, it internally detects the cleaned up
   image catalog entries, and quietly ignores them.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET930124

Description:
   A change has been made to ensure that NBPEM finds all user-initiated jobs,
   all of the time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET933326
Associated Primary Etrack = ET917312

Description:
   nbnos would core dump on an HP-UX master server with max_thread_proc set at
   the default value of 64.  Every nbpem restart would cause nbnos to create
   more threads.  Corrections were made to nbpem that prevent nbnos from
   creating new threads every time nbpem is restarted.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET649458

Description:
   The VRTS VxFS file system does not support named data streams
   that contain directory structures.  A check was added to warn
   users if a named data stream that contains a directory structure
   is found during file processing.  Such structures will not be
   backed up.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET933586
Associated Primary Etrack = ET932325

Description:
   During a multi-streamed database backup (MS-SQL backup in this case), the
   media gets unmounted/mounted again intermittently. Ideally, the NetBackup
   resource broker (nbrb) should try to use the loaded media (preferably same
   media) for all streams.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET915850
Associated Primary Etrack = ET915879

Description:
   Changes were made to ensure that multi-threaded processes no longer crash.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET861506

Description:
   The Job Manager must forward a snap ID from a non-streamed Windows open
   file backup (WOFB) to the Policy Execution Manager for VSP cache files
   to be cleaned. In addition, changed the Policy Execution Manager to add
   SNAP_ID directives to include the file list.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET918477
Associated Primary Etrack = ET917028

Description:
   This is limited to the Nearstore storage unit.
   If an incremental backup was done after a synthetic full backup, and no
   other full backups existed on that volume, then the incremental would fail.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET899124
Associated Primary Etrack = ET899121

Description:
   This issue only affected restores from Nearstore storage units.
   Non-full backups (a subset of the entire backup ) where files were pulled
   from fragments other than fragment 1 would fail.  The issue was that the
   image relative offset was not being tracked and NetBackup was seeking to
   the incorrect offset within the image.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, use the Nearstore File System Export functionality
   or duplicate the entire backup to basic disk or some other media.

Etrack Incident = ET831189

Description:
   NetBackup shutdown would not terminate parent jobs (nbgenjob).  A change
   was made to the Policy Execution Manager to terminate all parent jobs
   with a 50 status (EC_client_aborted).  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, manually terminate all nbgenjob processes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Changes have been added to ensure that send_mail() validates
   all parameters it receives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET866302 ET893368

Description:
   The catalog cleanup process will not run to completion because it yields to
   a catalog backup. If the cleanup process is long or if catalog backups are
   frequent, the cleanup will not be able to delete expired images.
   
   This maintenance pack contains a fix that enables catalog cleanup and
   catalog backup to run in parallel. If a cleanup operation runs when a hot
   catalog backup is in progress, it might delete images that were sent to
   bpbkar earlier (in its image directive list), and cause the hot catalog
   backup to finish with a partial success. This fix detects this situation
   and returns the right error code to bpbkar.
   
   The cleanup and catalog backup running in parallel is now the default
   behavior.  However, this can be disabled by creating a file called
   "CLEANUP_WAIT_FOR_CATBKUP" in netbackup/db/config (for UNIX) and
   \NetBackup\db\config (for Windows).
   
   This fix also enables images to be expired and deleted using bpexpdate
   even when a hot catalog backup is in progress.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, disable hot catalog backups to allow cleanup to
   run to completion.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET808281

Description:
   bpdbm incorrectly sets the PFI_TYPE to 0. It must check if the copy being

Associated Primary Etrack = ET964501

Description:
   Duplication (with multiplexing preserved) hangs for multiplexed TIR
   images when using NetBackup 6.0 MP4.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, do not preserve multiplexing when duplicating,
   or do not use multiplexing. In addition, this may slow down performance.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET962923

Description:
   NetBackup Service Layer (nbsl) no longer core dumps during install,
   sched_bkup, and uninstall tests.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET965512

Description:
   The VSS authorization tables were updated to include the new EMM interfaces.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET983962

Description:
   An earlier change was made to keep track of open file
   descriptors.  Descriptors are pushed onto a stack as files
   are opened and popped from the stack when they are closed.
   For file pointers the fileno of the pointer is used.  On
   Linux, when a file pointer is closed, the pointer value is
   reset by the operating system.  This caused problems with
   fileno and it is possible to cause segmentation violations.
   
   The fix is to replace existing "close then pop" sequences
   with a macro that does a "pop then close" sequence on Linux
   and a "close then pop" on other platforms.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET973985

Description:
   In certain cases, PBX logs were not being pruned according to settings in
   /etc/vx/VxICS/icsul.conf.  

Additional Notes:
   UNIX PBX runtime components are being updated in this maintenance pack along
   with the NetBackup Server.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET990874
Associated Primary Etrack = ET974535

Description:
   A timing problem was introduced in the last patch that could
   cause multiplexed TIR backups to fail.  This was due to a
   backup ending as another was recording the TIR information.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831965

Description:
   NetBackup 6.0 disk staging storage unit’s high water mark (HWM) and low
   water mark (LMW) are not changeable for an application cluster
   (AppCluster) configuration.  Currently, the AppCluster Configuration does
   not have a NetBackup version so it is treated as a pre-NetBackup 6.0
   storage unit, where the HWM is set to the previous behavior of 100 percent
   and a LWM did not exist, therefore it is set to a default value of
   80 percent.  Both of these settings were new in NetBackup 6.0 and are not
   configurable in pre-NetBackup 6.0 versions.

Workaround:
   The AppCluster version number must be at the same version level as
   the servers that make up the AppCluster.  To resolve this issue, the
   user should manually enter the NetBackup version number for the
   AppCluster using the nbbemmcmd command. In addition, all of the
   NetBackup servers in the AppCluster should be at the same, specified
   version.
   
   As an example, you would use the following command on the master
   server to update the NetBackup version number for an AppCluster.
   
   nbemmcmd -updatehost -machinename virtual_name -machinetype app_cluster
   -netbackupversion 6.0
   
   where virtual_name is the virtual name of the application (AppCluster).

Description:
   Changes were made to ensure that a Vault operator could operate properly in
   an NBAC environment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET991647
Associated Primary Etrack = ET990896

Description:
   After installing the BMR boot server to a Windows system with a
   NetBackup 6.0 MP maintenance pack installed, and then performing a repair
   on the pack to apply the BMR boot server binaries, the user should copy
   the binaries to the correct directory location.  If a NetBackup
   installation was installed to a alternate location, the repair will not
   correctly apply the patch binaries to the alternate location.  

Workaround:
   Again, to resolve this issue, copy the binaries, after performing the
   "repair" option to the correct directory.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET992949

Description:
   V_snprintf uses vsnprintf to implement a fix for uncommon strcat usage.  On
   the Windows platforms, vsnprintf did not guarantee a null terminated buffer.  
   Specifically, this was true if the data in the buffer exactly filled the
   destination without leaving room for the null termination.  In this case,
   the buffer would not be null terminated and the function would crash when
   V_strlcpy is called.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   A condition existed that caused failed jobs to exceed a configured number of
   tries.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET992223

Description:
   When checkpoint restart was enabled, and the "continue" flag was set in
   the schedule, bptm terminated the copy when an error on that copy
   occurred.  When the copy terminates, for multiplexing, no more jobs were
   scheduled for the multiplexed group. However, in rare cases there is a
   timing window where jobs may have already been started but not yet
   processed by bptm.  In this case, incomplete fragment cleanup occurred
   for the failed copy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Symantec Code Repository Revision Tags was added to some files, to enable
   better tracking.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET999754

Description:
   If there were multiple copies of a backup, and a duplication was requested
   for disk source copy 1 (or any disk copy other than the last), the
   duplication might be started as a non-shared memory duplication.  A shared
   memory duplication is preferable for performance reasons.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   status code 0 (success) if another eject operation was in progress.
   vmchange now returns a status code 223 (STATUS_ROBOT_BUSY) when another
   eject operation is in progress.  This problem primarily affected vault
   eject operations.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET997925

Description:
   Stream discovery would ignore the preprocess interval and use the default of
   four hours.  A change was made so that the preprocess interval is now passed
   from Policy Execution Manager to the Job Manager and then to the parent job
   (nbgenjob) on the command line using the -preprocessInterval option.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Associated Primary Etrack = ET988955

Description:
   TIR files that were than 2GB were not able to be read because the size was
   stored in a 32-bit integer and the math used to turn that into a 64-bit
   integer caused a large negative value to be stored on some platforms. This
   maintenance pack contains a fix that contains explicit casts at appropriate
   junctures.  This issue was found on a Nearstore storage unit but would have
   affected any disk storage unit if TIR was being used.

   Status was being sent to the client after the stsdeletefiles
   process was run. If that process took too long, the client
   timed out. The backup was successful however the archive bits
   on the client were not cleared, so the same files were backed
   up in the next incremental, even though that was not necessary.
   
   The result was that incremental backups were essentially running
   as full backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET518074
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1009431

Description:
   Upgraded the Sig Scheduler to 2.60.030 in this maintenance pack.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1020081

Description:
   A change was added so that when printDueJobs accesses the work list it will
   lock the list to avoid potential issues with other threads trying to access
   the work list.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET995592

Description:
   Conversion of the policy include file-list entries failed resulting in
   blank entries.  A change was made to the nbproxy conversion code to use
   language codeset setting of "utf8" for HP platforms, otherwise "UTF-8" for
   all other platforms to prevent the conversion from returning an error saying
   the input was invalid.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1024066

Description:
   Corrected a bpdm core dump that occurred with V_strverify on a Linux IA-64
   System.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1023729
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1027068

Description:
   A storage unit update operation (from the NetBackup-Jave Administration
   Console) will fail if the user is logged into the system using the node name
   (not the virtual name).  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, use the virtual name.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1027605
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1024835

Description:
   ShadowImage snapshots failed on an AMS500 because the product
   ID was set to DF6 and yet it was interpreted as a 9500.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, set the Product ID to DF7 as the code
   currently expects.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1026332
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1018020

Description:
   A restore attempt, using a duplicated copy of a standard backup image
   that was duplicated using NDMP attached tape drive, would fail with exit
   status 25 (cannot connect on socket). The failure occurred because bpdm
   was started instead of bptm.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1028083

Description:
   The ltid reports that the user had configured more drives than they were
   licensed for, when they were using multiple drive paths.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1028405

Description:
   A change was made to ensure that the Windows FlashBackup Policy Type is
   disabled when the Advanced Client license key is not installed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1029379
Associated Primary Etrack = ET971543

Description:
   For FlashBackup Windows incremental backups, the extents for named streams
   associated with directories were not being examined and put in the bitmap.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET858201
Associated Primary Etrack = ET850921

Description:
   A hot catalog backup with a large number of image catalog entries
   can run out of memory.  

Workaround:
   For a temporary fix to the memory issue, contact Symantec Support and inquire
   about Emergency Engineering Binaries (EEBs) that are available for this issue,
   or perform an offline backup, or a cold catalog backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1028058

Description:
   An incorrect group and ownership on a libdbjodbc9.so symbolic link file has
   been corrected.  

Additional Notes:
   This change only affects HP-UX on RISC hardware.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1026006

Description:
   Under nb/idl/NBPolicyTypes.idl, many new fields were added for
   NetBackup 6.5.  This created problems for NOM 6.5 to support 6.0 MP5
   masters. To avoid this issue, Symantec added the new fields in 6.0 MP5
   as reserved fields which will resolve this issue.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1028169

Description:
   NetBackup will now be shutdown in runlevel 1 on Solaris systems.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1032876
Associated Primary Etrack = ET963719

Description:
   Changes were made to correct a Dr Watson error caused by bpbkar.
   
   Bpbkar would cause a Dr Watson error on the client while backing up
   encrypted files.  The job consistently failed with an exit status 13
   while backing up the following directory: E:\QuickBase\server\dbs\.
   
   Files that were backed up were continuously changing. A third party
   application would capture changes made from the end user (web user)
   to a .delta file, the delta file was then written to the files in the
   directory, "E:\QuickBase\server\dbs\", only after the user had closed
   the web application. The .delta files were continuously changing, and
   the changes made to the directory were approximately 10 gigabytes
   an hour.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1026986
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1005324

Description:
   Cleaning jobs that were initiated because of a TapeAlert or frequency would
   fail if they did not complete in six minutes.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1036385
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1006915

Description:
   A disk staging job that runs from one media server to another,
   where the media server that is performing the write operation
   is a UNIX system, will fail some of the jobs and/or hang.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, create the following touch file on the
   master server:
   
   For UNIX:
      /usr/openv/netbackup/NODTTSDUP
   
   For Windows:
      VERITAS\NetBackup\NODTTSDUP  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1035288

Description:
   NetBackup 6.0 does not provide a way to perform device monitor queries for a
   single media server.  Users must sift through all servers' output for the
   data needed.  This maintenance pack adds the option -hostdevmon to the
   vmoprcmd command line to provide a single server's device state.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1040339
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1027138

Description:
   Increased the drive ready timeout for TLD drives to 14 minutes to
   incorporate a worst case scenario of 14 minutes for LTO drives in
   an effort to remove bad media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1039797

Description:
   When a full data directory is restored, the recovery was failing due to a
   truncation of the database name.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1038347
Associated Primary Etrack = ET996144

Description:
   After a WOFB backup, bpbkar32 would clean up an active
   FlashBackup- Windows snapshot - because PEM did not send the
   SET SNAP_ID for snapshots that should be retained on the client.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, reschedule the backups of the C: and D: drives so
   that they start -and- complete at non-overlapping time periods
   However, for some customers this is not practical because they may have
   volumes that are in the range of 800GB ~ 1TB. In addition, some of their
   servers may have more than one volume that needs to be protected using
   Flashbackup
   
   In this circumstance, Symantec suggests the customer sets the priority
   of the C: drive backup to a higher value than the Flashbackup policy;
   and then for the affected clients that are part of their Flashbackup
   policies, using the Master Server Host Properties > Client Attributes >
   Set Max jobs/client option and setting it to 1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1039117
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1038317

Description:
   "bpmedia -movedb" starts bptm on the old server to move the media
   database. If the old server and the new server are at NetBackup 6.0
   (or post 6.0), then there is no need to start bptm. All the
   operations can be done in bpmedia.  This also helps the scenario
   where one of the media server is offline or de-commissioned (and
   all the steps for de-commissioning the media server are not followed).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET992572
Associated Primary Etrack = ET892420

Description:
   The bppllist -allpolicies -U command would not return all policies.
   In addition, when recreating the issue, an application fault
   against bppllist was also found.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1050190

Description:

Description:
   Sybase 11.9.x backups no longer fail on HP-UX 11.00 after upgrading to
   NetBackup 6.0.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1046813

Description:
   Online catalog backup was failing with a status 50 when writing to a
   password-protected DR path in an environment with NBAC installed.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, store the DR file in a path which the running NetBackup
   bpbdm process has write access to without changing credentials.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1047911

Description:
   A description of the new '-copy' option is missing from the bprestore
   command line usage.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1051657
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1045602

Description:
   The NetBackup service layer (nbsl) would not start on a
   master server using PA_RISC 1.1 architecture if nbsl was
   compiled with PA_RISC 2.0.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Corrected an issue that caused ltid to fault after it was started.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1050393
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1036542

Description:
   ACS robot pre-eject operations sometimes show volumes that are
   NOT_IN_LIBRARY when they actually are.  This is due to a buffer
   length problem in the acsd robotic daemon.  This primarily affects
   Vault ejects to ACS robots.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1052551

Description:
   Intermittent issues were found when ejecting multiple CAP-fulls of
   media with the latest ACSLS patch, PUT0701S.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Some ACS_SDLT* media will not be mapped correctly to NetBackup media types
   when specifying the mapping in vm.conf.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1054463
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1039776

Description:
   After changing the bp.conf SERVER entry from short name to FQDN
   (or vice versa) and when performing a hot catalog backup with Vault,
   the Vault job will fail with a status 294, even though the catalog
   backup was successful.
   
   Now, instead of using gethostname() results when vault performs a
   validation, the client name (as configured in the policy) will be
   used.  

Workaround:
   UNIX ONLY: In the imageDB directory, create a symbolic link between
   FQDN and short names.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1053444

Description:
   A change was made that corrects a crash using bpplschedrep.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1032378

Description:
   Added a fix to correct an nbjm crash in TAO_Transport::handle_input.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1018993

Description:
   On some SuSE 10 servers, when NetBackup asks the system if
   it is the name listed as the EMM Server in the bp.conf file
   at boot time, it incorrectly answers no.  This correction asks
   several times and usually the second attempt gives the correct
   answer.
   
   This causes a 55 second delay, with starting NetBackup daemons,
   on SuSE 10 servers that are not MM Servers.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, run the following start command after a
   system has rebooted.
   
      /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/netbackup
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1060972
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1038232

Description:
   When Enterprise Vault performs backups to NetBackup using the
   VxBSA file APIs, the backups can fail.  Enterprise Vault posts
   an event error entry saying Failed to send file (error 00000003:
   System detected error, operation aborted.).  Check the NetBackup
   Activity Monitor.
   
   Examination of the exten_client debug log shows that following
   type of error being logged.

Etrack Incident = ET1063773
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1063750

Description:
   A crash in nbemm would occur if an inventory was attempted
   while the database server was down.  This would easily happen
   if a site was performing a cold catalog backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1064798

Description:
   A DB2 restore now has the ability to redirect a DB2 database
   to a different owner from the original owner (both owners
   being from the same group). A new backup of the source DB2
   database is required so the correct group permission is on the
   image to allow the alternate user to perform a restore to the
   new instance, or database.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1066935
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1062088

Description:
   bpdbm crash can occur, during a recovery, if a damaged image
   file exists prior to the recovery.

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) will not stay running and the
   following error is produced.
   
   Windows error 1063 - Windows SCM unable to start it as a service.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, increase the service-registration timeout
   from the Windows-registry.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1078584

Description:
   Running backups that have streaming enabled (and perform
   incremental backups whose file list changes) may encountered
   the following problem.
   
   When stream discovery is done and some existing streams are shuffled
   because new files are being added or existing streams being deleted,
   the streams files are shuffled but the "lastbackup" time is saved for
   the streams that remain.  Therefore, when a new stream maps to a
   preexisting stream with a date of zero (since there was no prior
   backup) you want to avoid doing a query for "lastbackup" with that
   stream number because it will return the "lastbackup" time for the
   stream that was shuffled or deleted.  If you avoid doing a query
   for "lastbackup" when the date is zero you also keep the streams
   from shuffling and the query returning a "lastbackup" time from a
   different stream.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1079359
Associated Primary Etrack = ET899380

Description:
   A change was added that corrects a Status 805 error condition on

Description:
   Policy Execution Manager would core dump when reading a policy because
   of a configuration change event.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1092076

Description:
   NOM receives data from NBSL regarding changes in policy, storage units,
   processes and services information, and so forth through events. When
   the nbnos process is terminated, NBSL cannot deliver these events to NOM.
   
   After restarting the nbnos process, the event delivery mechanism should
   resume and NOM should continue to get data from NBSL, but it fails.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   if it was shutting down at the same time a progress log was being updated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET617254 ET617889 ET640121

Description:
   Hot Catalog Backup would not backup images when IDIRSTRUCT equaled 1
   because the code expected the master server had a second or later version
   of the catalog image directory structure, for example, IDIRSTRUCT = 2.
   
   In a UNIX cluster environment, the VAR_GLOBAL_PATH is linked to the shared
   drive. The backup client (such as, bpbkar) does not follow symbolic links
   currently and therefore the files inside the linked directory would not be
   backed up in an online catalog backup.
   
   Excessive bpdbm debug log entries were produced from a Hot Catalog Backup.
   This fix ties the logging of libcatbackup debug messages to the following
   setting.
   
   BPDBM_VERBOSE setting.
   Example of affected log message:
   00:00:02.032 [8398] < 2> db_ImgUnlock: db_ImgUnlock(833d698) error(0)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET636334 ET636411 ET636414

Description:
   The hot catalog backups would fail if the CRYPT_OPTION was set to REQUIRED
   in bp.conf, where it could also be set through the GUI->Host Properties->
   Clients->Encryption tab.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, set CRYPT_OPTION to ALLOWED, which is the default.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET617892

Description:
   For an imported catalog backup image, the command line instruction
   "bprecover -r -nbdb" would not work because the parent image ID was
   missing in imported ASA image header.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, open the imported catalog image header file and
   remove the PARENT_IMAGE_ID line so that the ASA and the catalog backup
   image header files do not contain the field.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET642003
Associated Primary Etracks = ET841985

   JobParams file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET638318

Description:
   The NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (NBPEM) submitted a child job with
   the option to inherit resources from the parent job after it released
   resources from the parent job. The NBJM then crashed while trying to get
   the resource from the parent job.

   -  The master server is running NetBackup 6.0MP3.
   -  The media server is running NetBackup 5.x.
   -  The client is added to the NetBackup client database with the default
      connect options.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, explicitly set the connect_options value in the
   client database to a value that is acceptable for a NetBackup 5.x version.
   Do not use the default values:
   
   admincmd/bpclient -update -client <client_name> -connect_options 0 0 2

Associated Primary Etracks = ET630772

Description:
   A change was made to the Policy Execution Manager to auto retry Vault jobs
   on Status codes EC_vc_EjectFailed (287), EC_vc_EjectPartialSuccess (288),
   and EC_vc_PartialSuccess (306).  If one image failed to duplicate, Vault
   would return a status 306.  Also changed the parent job (nbgenjob) to
   validate the image for a Vault job that returned an error status 306, 287,
   or 288.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET618696

Description:
   The following error would occur when trying to apply a patch when running
   nbdb_upgrade:
   
   Verifying the running version of NBDB ...
   ***** SQL error: Database server not found
   Failed system call, '/usr/openv/db/bin//nbdb_unload -dbn NBDB -s /tmp'
   Verification Failed.
   
   When connecting to Sybase ASA using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC),
   shared memory connections used space in /tmp by default.  If there were
   issues creating files in /tmp, the connection would fail.  To resolve this
   issue, the environment variable, ASTMP, is now set to /usr/openv/tmp.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET636795

Description:
   Added the capability to do a step-wise downgrade of the NetBackup
   Relational Database schema. This enables you to uninstall one or more
   maintenance patches in the order in which they were applied.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET621857

Description:
   Unable to create or modify disk staging storage units using the
   NetBackup-Java Administration Console if a NetBackup 5.x system was
   upgraded to NetBackup 6.0 or if a NetBackup 5.x license key was used
   during a NetBackup 6.0 server installation.  
   
   This pack corrects this issue and enables you to create or modify disk
   staging storage units using the NetBackup-Java Administration Console
   if a NetBackup 5.x system is upgraded to NetBackup 6.0 using the 5.x
   license or you could update to a NetBackup 6.0 license key.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET644627

Description:
   On the active node, if the user has installed this pack on a secure
   VCS Windows cluster environment that has a NetBackup server with EMM,
   and are observing that NetBackup does not come online, the Enterprise
   Media Manager (EMM) database schema did not update properly.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, perform the following steps:
   1. Take the NetBackup Server resource offline.
   2. Freeze the NetBackup Service group.
   3. Make sure that the Adaptive Server Anywhere – VERITAS_NB service is
      started.
   4. Execute the following command.
         <install dir>/NetBackup/bin/nbdb_upgrade.exe –dbn NBDB
   5. Execute the following command.
         <install dir>/NetBackup/bin/admincmd/bpsyncinfo.exe
         -add_paths NETBACKUP_RELATIONAL_DATABASE_FILES
   6. Unfreeze the NetBackup Service group.
   7. Bring NetBackup Server resource back online.
   
   If you have experienced this issue on the install then you will also
   experience it on the uninstall from the active node.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET636799

Description:
   An error would occur when mixing FULL, Differential Incremental, and Vault
   schedules in the "Hot_Catalog" backup policy.  For example, if a Vault
   schedule ran, followed by a Differential schedule (without any other jobs
   running in between the two), the result would be the following:
   
   JobID X = Catalog "Control" Job - Ends with Status 2
   JobID X+1 = Differential Incremental Catalog Job - Ends with Status 227
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET644077

Description:
   In NetBackup 4.5, netbackup.dll was installed in the

   installer did not remove the old version of the file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET618372

Description:
   A change was made so that bpstsinfo correctly passes the
   -filteronimagemodetype flag when used with the -remote flag.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET645645
Associated Primary Etracks = ET645697

Description:
   A condition existed that caused the NetBackup resource Broker (nbrb) to
   core dump under heavily loaded conditions. This problem had occurred
   on AIX and HP-UX. There was lot of locking and unlocking involved in the
   area where the resource broker (RB) sends the resources to the job manager.
   RB was using reverse lock provided by ACE. Either RB was not using the
   lock correctly or there was some issue in the ACE's implementation of
   reverse lock which caused this core dump. To address the issue, the
   lock/unlock logic was simplified.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET617893

Description:
   TIR-enabled backups (including FlashBackup and NDMP) could fail in the
   validation phase of the backup because of a miscalculated file size.  This
   patch provides earlier detection of the error and improved reporting on the
   cause of the error.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET641172

Description:
   Online catalog backups in configurations with cluster 5.x media servers
   were creating a bpbackupdb process that looped infinitely.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET628709

Description:
   A change was made so that EMM now verifies that all nodes in a cluster are
   configured either as masters or media servers.  EMM should not allow
   media-master configurations among the cluster nodes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET646623
Associated Primary Etracks = ET849324

Description:
   The default method for NetBackup ODBC connections to the NetBackup database
   (NBDB)/EMM database is to use shared memory followed by tcpip if shared
   memory fails.  This is controlled by the LINKS=shmem,tcpip{PORT=13785}
   parameter in the database connection string.
   
   On some platforms, there have been intermittent issues with shared memory
   connections to the Sybase ASA database.
   
   To work-around this issue, a new parameter has been aded to the vxdbms.conf
   dfile to set the LINKS parameter in the connection string.  To change this
   parameter to only use tcpip connections, the following line
   was added to vxdbms.conf:
   
       VXDBMS_LINKS = tcpip{PORT=13785}
   
   The vxdbms.conf file is located in /usr/openv/db/data (UNIX) and
   InstallPath\VERITAS\NetBackupDB\data (Windows).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET641145

Description:
   A problem existed that caused, in a few rare cases, f-list files in the
   catstore subdirectories to have a mixed set of UNIX-style and Windows-style
   path separators or even incorrect path entries.  The code currently assumes
   only one style of path separator was being used which caused problems for
   hot catalog backup.
   
   On Windows master servers this results in a partially successful
   (status 1) hot catalog backup job.
   
   On UNIX or Linux master servers this results in a failed (status 67)
   hot catalog backup job on patch levels prior to MP4 and in a partially
   successful (status 1) hot catalog backup job on patch levels MP4 and
   later.  (UNIX or Linux master servers are now consistent with Windows
   master servers in the status for this condition.)
   
   A message similar to the following should be seen in the bpbkar debug log
   if this bug is encountered:
   
   ERR - Unable to expand hot catalog backup directive: CATALOG_BACKUP  

Workaround:
   It is reasonably straightforward to manually identify, edit, and correct
   the offending f-list files to avoid this problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET593700

Description:
   Added a check so that any backups going to a file system export-enabled
   Nearstore storage unit must have TIR enabled. This is because the
   sts_delete_files process, which is part of the file system export backup,
   requires the TIR data.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET632204

Description:
   Media locations in ACS robotics were not updated properly after dismount
   or during inventory when moving from standalone to robotic.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET644756 ET702144

Description:
   In cases where a user authenticated against a non-root broker a failure to
   load a credential from disk could occur. This would result in false
   negative access checks for users leading to a Backup, Archive, and Restore
   user interface rather than the NetBackup Administration console.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, authenticate against the root broker on the master
   server rather than another broker.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack Incident = ET646981

Description:
   The NDMP agent caused a Dr. Watson error and a DUMP file when backing up
   one volume.
   
   This happens only on Windows and only when NDMP logging is enabled.
   The problem is caused by "invalid" mtime/atime/ctime values sent by the
   filer in the file history. This is not a normal situation.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, turn NDMP logging off. This problem only occurs if
   NDMP logging is enabled.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET635017

Etrack Incident = ET646985

Description:
   NDMP backups failed with a status 84 when writing a TIR fragment.
   
   The bptm log showed an error where the expected block position is one off.
   This error occurred in the function write_data_tir().

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, add the following line to the file
   <installdir>/netbackup/db/config/ndmp.cfg
   
       NDMP_MOVER_CLIENT_DISABLE
   
   This will have a minimal impact on backups. However it will cause a
   significant performance impact to dup/verify/import when using
   NDMP drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET640207

Description:
   Allow the end user to specify pool numbers when creating a new volume pool.
   A new option (-pnum) was added to the vmpool command to facilitate this.  
   
   The new usage is:
   
   vmpool [-pnum <pool number>] -add <pool_name> "<description>" <host> <uid>
   <gid>
   
   The -pnum option must be specified before the -add option.  The -pnum has
   no effect when the -change option is specified.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET627870

Description:
   The image will not be closed correctly and a data loss will occur during
   duplication or staging where the following is true:
   
   - The destination storage unit (STU) is a volume on a Nearstore with
     version 7.2 of ONTAP.
   - The disk storage unit option for 'enable block sharing' is set.
   
   The first duplication or DSSU_POLICY backup to the Nearstore will complete
   successfully, but subsequent operations using that image (such as, restore
   and incremental backups) will not succeed.

Description:
   The nbpem showed scalability problems because of a recomputation of a
   job’s due-time when not necessary.  In addition, the internal queue
   management was a single thread trying to handle multiple queues, which
   caused long waits to process requests on some of the queues.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET641156

Description:
   Hot catalog backup jobs fail with status 29 on Linux platforms.
   
   In reality the backup did succeed, but the status is not being recorded
   correctly resulting in the failed backup job.
   
   Messages similar to the following will be seen in the admin debug log,
   which show that the internal CLI used for the hot catalog backup job
   did complete successfully:
   
   <2> bpbackupdb: INITIATING: NetBackup 6.0
   <2> logparams: -vxss -pjobid 672 -nodbpaths ...
   <2> bpbackupdb: EXIT status = 0
   
   But as message similar to these in the bpdbm debug log will indicate,
   bpdbm thinks that the CLI operation failed:
   
   <16> exec_vxss_backup: OVsystem(bpbackupdb -vxss -pjobid 672 -nodbpaths ...)
   <16> exec_catalog_backup: exec_vxss_backup() failed (29)

   Changes were made to fix an NBSL core dump.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET641162 ET649541

Description:
   Some new image data fields added in NetBackup 6.0 were missing in the
   image index file and therefore an online catalog backup job could fail
   if the image index feature was enabled for the master server. (The image
   index feature was enabled by the "bpimage -create_image_list -client
   <master-server-name>" command line utility.)
   
   Running bpexpdate to change the expiration of a phase I imported image
   could cause it to be deleted if the backup spans tapes AND the first
   tape has not yet completed phase II of the import process.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not enable the image index feature for the master
   server (for example, do not run bpimage -create_image_list -client
   <master-server-name>"). If the image index feature has already been
   enabled for the master server, apply this patch or contact technical
   support for assistance in disabling the image index feature for the
   master server by removing the IMAGE_* files from the
   /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images/<master-server-name> directory to disable
   the image index feature for the master server.

Additional Notes:
   To configure and run NetBackup as a VCS clustered application on
   HPIA64 and Linux64 platforms, the base NetBackup must be installed along
   with this patch.  Without this patch, cluster configuration cannot be
   performed on these platforms.

Associated Primary Etracks = ET647573

Description:
   If NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) was enabled prior to an upgrade
   from 6.0GA (or 6.0MP1) to 6.0MP2, any non-Administrator, non-root
   users in the NBU_Security Admin Group would lose their Access Control
   privileges after the upgrade.

Workaround:
   There are three workaround options available to you, that you can use
   to avoid this issue:
   
   First workaround option:
   ------------------------
   Add the Non-admin user to the “Security Administrators” group in
   VxAZ.  To do this, perform the following steps:
   
   1.  Open the VxSS user interface (/opt/VRTSat/bin/runvssatgui.sh
   2.  Open the appropriate Authorization Server (top right button).
          Connect to it using root.
   3.  Select the “Authorization Groups” button on the left panel.
   4.  Select the “Security Administrators” group in the tree.
   5.  Select the menu option Authorization > Authorization Groups >
          Add Member.
   6.  Add the non-Admin user using the dialog that appears.
   7.  The non-Admin user should now have the necessary permission.  
          This should not circumvent any other security because this
          user now has security privileges on VxAZ.  If this is not
          appropriate, contact Symantec Support for help in taking other
          other measures, such as read-only access to Security
          information.  
   
          Note:  The non-Admin user SHOULD have permission without
          taking this step.
   
   Second workaround option:
   ------------------------
   Uninstall the VxAZ installation and reinstall.  Re-configure NBAC by
   Running “bpnbaz –SetupSecurity <server>” and the appropriate
   “bpnbaz –AllowAuthorization” commands.
   
   Note:  This option will cause any customization to be lost.
   
   Third workaround option:
   ------------------------
   Only use Admin users for Security Operations.

Description:
   Log Recycling enables NetBackup users to control the amount of disk space
   that is used for logs.  Prior to this change, the disk could fill with
   log files.  
   
   Previous options available for controlling disk use was available via
   either 1) user intervention with the vxlogmgr –d command, 2) a cron job
   that called vxlogmgr -d, or 3) the ‘Keep Logs’ setting in the
   NetBackup-Java Administration Console.  These options were often inadequate
   because they are time-based pruning, while VxUL log recycling is
   continuous.  Often, time-based pruning has been inadequate because the log
   files filled the disk before the time-based pruning has chance to execute.
   
   For more detailed information about Log Recycling, refer to the following
   TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

Etrack Incident = ET768448

Description:
   Could not manually create NDMP or Media Manager storage units using the
   NetBackup-Java Administration console.  Using the bpstuadd –nodevhost
   command would return the message, “Remote Media Servers not allowed for
   NetBackup Server”.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET768441

Description:
   vmphyinv no longer fails while changing media residence.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET769421

Description:
   When selecting the preferred machine name for a cluster node, which will
   be stored in the EMM database, ignore any REQUIRED_INTERFACE entries in
   vm.conf or bp.conf (Registry on Windows).

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, remove the REQUIRED_INTERFACE entries from vm.conf and
   bp.conf (Registry on Windows) before installing NetBackup 6.0.  This only
   pertains to cluster environments.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET768457

Description:
   The nbemmcmd –deletehost command no longer fails if a storage unit is set
   to, "Any Available Host".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET767144
Associated Primary Etracks = ET767131

Description:
   No longer receive “Allocation Failed” errors when trying to connect to the
   Activity Monitor.  This occurred for all users using the Java Activity
   Monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET769437

Description:
   A previous change was made to bpduplicate which could in some instances
   result in creating a command string which bpdm could not parse.  This
   caused duplication to fail.  This problem only existed for NearStore
   storage units.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET649747
Associated Primary Etracks = ET648871

Description:
   User-directed archives no longer delete files if warnings are generated
   during the backup portion of the operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770672

Description:
   Storage unit changes could cause policy execution manager (PEM) to receive
   unnecessary event notifications which would impact PEM performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET413513

Description:
   For a policy that used wildcards (such as, *) in the file list and enabled
   multiple data streams, NetBackup would not include any dot files (such as,
   .rhosts) at that directory level in the backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET769378

Description:
   If the Hot Catalog Backup encountered an image catalog that was corrupted,
   it would stop the hot catalog backup at that point and finish immediately
   with an error code of 67 (file list read failed).
   
   Now it continues past the corrupted image catalog, and backs up the rest of
   the catalog, and finishes with a partial success status of 1.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, fix the corruption in the image catalog, or take a
   cold catalog backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET767294
Associated Primary Etracks = ET763625

Description:
   A new entry "MediaBlockSize" is provided in the nbsl.xml file to configure
   fetch size.  This option is useful for congested TCP/IP networks, where the
   default fetch size of 1000 could fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET593547

Description:
   The media_deassign_notify notification script, added to the
   <install_path>/netbackup/bin/goodies directory, will execute if it is
   moved into the <install_path>/netbackup/bin directory.  This script is
   executed every time a media is deassigned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET774846 ET805115 ET818780 ET831242
Associated Primary Etracks = ET621934

Description:
   On large file systems with a large number of images, disk staging would not
   free space fast enough to prevent concurrent backups from failing with 129
   errors.

Additional Notes:
   When a backup to a disk storage unit with staging completes, the percent
   used is compared with the high water mark. If the percent used is equal to
   or greater than the high water mark, a bpdm process will be invoked which
   will remove staged images until the low water mark is reached.
   
   To disable this behavior, create the "IGNORE_HIGH_WATER_MARK" touch file in
   the netbackup/bin directory.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET768910
Associated Primary Etracks = ET763868

Description:
   update_clients did not recognize the invalid parameter Install_java.  A
   change to the parameter check has been made to catch this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET645067
Associated Primary Etracks = ET645064

Description:
   Sun Cluster agent was reporting the following error when failing over the
   resource group.
      “Failed to retrieve the resource type handle: invalid resource type”
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770159

Description:
   To determine the NetBackup server version, bpexpdate, bpdbm, and some other
   components were using bpcd protocol. If one of the servers is down, it may
   take a long time. In addition, the error handling of the failure was not
   appropriate.
   
   A change has been made to fetch the NetBackup server version from the EMM
   database. This is a fast and more reliable way to determine NetBackup
   server versions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770650

Description:
   Changes have been made to correct various compile warnings.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET776562

Description:
   The Problem’s Report shows, "SO_REUSEADDR failed, errno = 0, No error".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772419

Description:
   During normal termination using the bpdown command (on Windows), PEM's
   JobScheduler::terminate was not called.  This casued PEM to hang while
   waiting for the Connection Factory to be closed and eventually lead to a
   crash.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777370
Associated Primary Etracks = ET649531

Description:
   "bpstsinfo -UPDATE" no longer hangs on an exit.

Description:
   Tapes that were not full were sometimes mistakenly ejected from standalone
   drives after jobs completed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET773419

Description:
   Changes were added to fix warning errors when compiling jobmgr on
   HP-UX systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772287

Description:
   Changes were made to fix issues where synth backups were failing when going
   to a File system, export-enabled, NearStore storage unit because they did
   not "admit" to being TIR enabled even if the policy they are run out of is
   TIR enabled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET768443

Description:
   The user was able to change the pool type of the default none, NetBackup,
   DataStore, and Catalog backup pools.  This fixes the problem from the
   server side.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET776697

Description:
   Duplication failed if VERBOSE=5 was set and the destination storage unit
   was a tape.
   
   This problem was introduced by a previous fix in this pack and does not
   exist in any released software.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not set VERBOSE equal to 5.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770273

Description:
   Wildcard matching in image keywords does not work.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777616

Description:
   Failing synthetic backups would unintentionally perform a catalog cleanup
   instead of deleting the single failed backup image.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET771311

Description:
   Changes were made to resolve several small memory leaks that were possible
   in infrequently encountered scenarios.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET773473

Description:
   Added support for Linux, Red Hat 4, and SuSE 9, on Power PC from IBM.
   Normal UNIX client support for these client types is also covered with
   this maintenance pack.
   
   File system support is limited to EXT2, EXT3, ReiserFS on SuSE SLES 9, and
   NFS.  Files that are greater than 2 Gigabytes are supported.  Local user
   interfaces are available through the command line or the menu interface
   (using the bp command). Remote access is the same as all other UNIX
   clients.
   
   For the client binaries to be installed from the UNIX patch you must first
   create the following directories:
   
   /usr/openv/netbackup/client/Linux/IBMpSeriesRedHat2.6
   /usr/openv/netbackup/client/Linux/IBMpSeriesSuSE2.6
   
   The binaries for the Encryption licensed feature are available through
   the Encryption patch.  For the Encryption binaries to be installed from
   the UNIX Encryption patch you must first create the following directories:
   
   /usr/openv/netbackup/crypt/Linux/IBMpSeriesRedHat2.6
   /usr/openv/netbackup/crypt/Linux/IBMpSeriesSuSE2.6
   
   For additional information about Encryption, refer to the NetBackup
   Encryption readme.

Description:
   Synthetic Backup no longer fails when a component image spans tape volumes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET774704
Associated Primary Etracks = ET774649

Description:
   Restores of backups for clients that had FlashBackup policies (either alone
   or in combination with other policy types) were slow to become active and
   mount tapes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770151

Description:
   The “bpexpdate –recalculate –backupid –ret” command correctly changed the
   expiry date of an image, but not the image retention level.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772390

Description:
   In some scenarios, the NetBackup Resource Broker (NBRB) was orphaning
   resources while waiting for tape span and then deallocating those
   resources. This caused an erroneous job termination.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775684

Description:
   Vaulting (bpduplicate) failed with the second image in a batch job with a
   “resource request failed” message.

Workaround:
   This problem may occur if images are on media with an ID of less than six
   characters.  To avoid this issue, use six-character media ID’s.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775681

Description:
   Increased the mount timeout for TLH drives to accommodate drive cleaning by
   the library between mounts.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775677

Description:
   Changes have been made to enable NetBackup to control TLH robotics with up
   to 512 drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775429

Description:
   Changes were made to correct error message for invalid media type mapping.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775427

Description:
   Changes were added to correct syslog messages to print appropriate
   information.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775428

Description:
   Resolved an issue with the TLD inventory with the empty_map option set by
   correcting the algorithm so that if only the last slot is open, it can
   still be used without failing.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET768449

Description:
   Resolved an issue that would not allow you to delete a machine of
   APP_CLUSTER type.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET776667

Description:
   Changes were made to correct various compiler warnings.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778780

Description:
   A bad configuration could lead to thousands of monitor-provider allocations
   in the database. The resource broker (RB), on startup, may consume a lot of
   memory reading these database entries and may even dump core. Now the RB
   removes all of the monitor-provider allocations at startup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775425

Description:
   When downing a drive using the vmoprcmd -downbyname or vmoprcmd –down
   comands, the drive's designated scan path was sometimes set back to "UP".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775435

Description:
   When a pre-NetBackup 6.0 media server was unassigned a drive that was
   Scanned by a NetBackup 6.0 media server, it was not clearing the
   RVSN/EVSN and Ready fields.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET780083
Associated Primary Etracks = ET780079

Description:
   When changing a drive from not shared to shared using the wizard, and
   the new host (the host that will now make it shared) was running
   NetBackup 5.x, the wizard would fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777630

Description:
   Back-level media servers are not able to DA-release the drives because
   re-registration timers block the request.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775426

Description:
   The robotic test utility (robtest) would core dump and could not perform
   an unload if multiple paths exist.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770182

Description:
   Long delays occurred when starting immediate backups because the Policy
   Execution Manager calls getNextJob() when processing immediate requests.
   Removed call to getNextJob() for immediate requests when searching for the
   backup.  It makes the time to find the job n squared instead of n, where n
   is the number of entries in the worklist.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770337

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager was using the wrong lock to extract entries
   from the job queue when processing user, archive, or manual backup
   requests.  This issue has been resolved and will no longer result in
   data corruption, a crash, or lost data.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772631

Description:
   The Job Manager CPU utilization was high while most of the user backup jobs
   were queued. The Job Manager was busy sending WAITING messages to the
   progress logs for the queued, user backup jobs. The WAITING message is sent
   every 30 seconds.  
   
   To resolve this issue, Job Manager was changed to increase the interval
   between these WAITING messages sent to the progress logs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770167

Description:
   Because of changes in the startup process with NetBackup 6.0 MP4, the
   Policy Execution Manager can not start jobs until the build worklist is
   complete.  This process can take a long time.  
   
   To compensate for this, the build worklist has been changed to not query
   the last backup or compute the due times so that the list can be built very
   quickly.  After the list has been built it will then synchronize with the
   NetBackup Job Manager so the jobs can be started, followed by the
   calculation of all of the jobs due times.
   
   By dividing the process of how the worklist is built into two steps, jobs
   can be started much sooner.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770655

Description:
   User backup requests to the Policy Execution Manager appeared to be waiting
   a long time for the worklist lock.  A change was made to the Policy
   Execution Manager to skip the due-time calculation for user, archive, or
   immediate requests.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET781527
Associated Primary Etracks = ET703273

Description:
   Changed the Policy Execution Manager to call the Job Manager restartJob
   Interface which looks at restartSelection setting instead of
   resourceSelection.  When a parent job is resumed, it frees the resource.
   Job Manager failed the job if it looked at the resourceSelection (that is
   set to inherit parent resource) but would work if it used restartSelection
   (that is, set to use standard resource).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777064

Description:
   The naming convention used by the Sun Solaris Leadville HBA driver has
   changed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET782623

Description:
   A change was made to correct an uninitialized local variable as well as
   remove an unused local variable within the code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778981

Description:
   Changes were made to resolve NBPEM memory leaks.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET779116

Description:
   NetBackup services NBPEM and NBJM would core dump if an attempt was made to
   Start them on a media server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET781175
Associated Primary Etracks = ET781185

Description:
   The user-configurable, MEDIA_UNMOUNT_DELAY timeout, was not being honored
   for database agents.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET773564

Description:
   A problem with the command -delete_server_from_app_cluster, made it
   impossible to unconfigure an application cluster and reconfigure it with
   the correct name.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778908

Description:
   Made multiple Coverity fixes for PEM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET784803 ET784808 ET784805 ET784804 ET784810 ET792742 ET784809 ET802855

Description:
   Buffer overflow areas have been identified and corrected in daemons running
   on Veritas NetBackup master, media, and client servers.   Successful access
   to a vulnerable Veritas NetBackup server and the ability to successfully
   execute arbitrary code could potentially result in unauthorized access with
   elevated privilege on a system.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775510

Description:
   A restore of a large backup image would potentially fail if a large number
   of data buffers (for example, 1024) was configured.  The number of data
   buffers is configured on UNIX systems in
   /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config/NUMBER_DATA_BUFFERS, and for Windows
   systems in <install_path>\NetBackup\db\config\NUMBER_DATA_BUFFERS.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this problem, do one of the following:
   
   - Set the number of data buffers to a smaller value (For example, 128).
   
   - Create the following file:
   
       UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config/MIN_RESTORE_SKIP
       Windows: <install_path>\NetBackup\db\config\MIN_RESTORE_SKIP
   
       Then enter a number greater than the following:
       (size_data_buffers) * (number_data_buffers) / 512
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775517

Description:
   Bpbrm would occasionally terminate abnormally without core on a very busy
   media server, which would cause the backup job to hang.  This could only
   happen on UNIX media servers, and not on Windows media servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775513

Description:
   Individual file restores would potentially fail in the following
   circumstance:
   
   - The original backup was done using Inline Copy, and at least one of the
        copies was disk, and the backup was multiplexed.
   - The backup had multiple fragments for the disk copy.
   - A duplicate from a disk copy to tape was performed, and the source and
        destination storage units are on the same machine.
   - The restore is from the duplicated disk copy.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, create the following file on the master server:
   
   For UNIX Systems:
   /usr/openv/netbackup/NOSHMDUP
   
   For Windows Systems:
   
   <installed_path>\NetBackup\NOSHMDUP
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET771553

Description:
   The NBPEM uses write locks instead of read/write locks to enhance
   performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770349

Description:
   bprd and nbpem now exchange user backup startup parameters through the
   use of a file named with a GUID instead of a process PID, eliminating the
   possibility that the same filename will be used twice.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET774791

Description:
   A missing log message was added for when FFREADtries are exceeded.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775512

Description:
   Verify, duplication, or import operations are not able to browse
   images from the Windows NetBackup Remote Administration Client.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, run the following command on the Remote Administration
   Client:
   
   <install_path>\volmgr\bin\vmglob -set_gdbhost <master server>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET781618
Associated Primary Etracks = ET771576

Description:
   Destination media may incorrectly get unmounted and a new media chosen when
   duplicating multiple images.  This can occur when duplicating a mixture of
   multiplexed and non-multiplexed backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET775591
Associated Primary Etracks = ET789993

Description:
   The image file created for the parent job, while multi-streaming, was not
   being validated. This would later cause status 200 failures.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET785921
Associated Primary Etracks = ET783614

Description:
   Duplication was failing after successfully duplicating the first image.
   This occurred because the server name in bp.conf file was different from
   what was in the EMM database.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778008

Description:
   When you run NBJM, built with a Windows debug build, it gets an assertion
   failure because of variables that were not initialized.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET770157
Associated Primary Etracks = ET794596

Description:
   The cleanup process intermittently failed to remove image header files on
   busy systems.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, ignore the reported error and let a subsequent cleanup
   process delete the file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET783401

Description:
   Restarting the device daemons on pre-NetBackup 6.0 media servers after a
   device configuration change would inadvertently unregister the host with
   the device allocator (DA).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Made multiple Coverity fixes for the NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET771614

Description:
   Improved the nbpem performance when reading the failure history database.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777662

Description:
   Trying to change a configured device to partially configured on a
   pre-6.0 media server in the device configuration wizard, may sometimes
   cause devices to become "DISABLED" for a NetBackup 5.x media server.
   For NetBackup 5.x media servers, there is no concept of "DISABLED".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET776871

Description:
   Duplications would fail with status codes of 114 or 800.  This occurred
   when media with mixed multiplexed and non-multiplexed backups were
   duplicated, and when using multiplexed duplication.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET778815

Description:
   The nbpem restarts it’s timer for the next housekeeping activity only after
   the previous housekeeping activity has completed
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772500

Description:
   Changes were added to this pack to eliminate crashes and core dumps during
   nbpem shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET781548

Description:
   When moving a host to new hardware using nbemmcmd, not all of the database
   entries were updated with the new hostname.  A change was added that
   verifies that all of the necessary database fields have been updated
   correctly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772510

Description:
   Changes were made that improve performance when writing error history by
   caching the Veritas Unified Logging (VxUL) configuration.

Etrack Incident = ET777633
Associated Primary Etracks = ET777631

Description:
   In the Java user interface, the Activity Monitor’s Detailed Status did not
   increment the percent complete.  It jumped from 0% to 100% at the end of
   the job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772618

Description:
   Generic jobs would not start when a large number of them were initiated in
   quick succession on Windows.
   
   NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) was changed to start an extra nbproxy on
   startup that is used by all nbgenjob's.  The only exception is that a
   catalog backup job will start its own nbproxy because a cancel is
   implemented by shutting down the nbproxy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET790041
Associated Primary Etracks = ET790038

Description:
   Generic job exited after a few retries when the Policy Execution Manager
   did not respond to pings. The parent job would exit with a status 50 and
   the children exits with a status 801.
   
   To resolve this issue, a change was made to genericjob that forces it to
   ping forever until the Policy Execution Manager responds or is restarted,
   or an OBJECT_NOT_EXIST exception is returned.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET786951
Associated Primary Etracks = ET781181

Etrack Incident = ET772403

Description:
   Formatting of jobid in log files has been normalized to "jobid=" in all
   reasonable cases.  This format agrees with the use of context as well.  
   In some places where stringstreams were used to format jobid, an
   .imbue(std::locale("C")) was added to prevent localized formatting of large
   integers.  For more information about this change, refer to the following
   TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

Description:
   The NetBackup Resource Broker (NBRB), under heavily loaded conditions with
   many media servers, would take about 30 seconds to give resources to the
   job.
   
   To fix the problem the following improvements have been made:
   
   -  Improved drive cache in RB (RB no longer links with emmlib).
   -  If the maxmpx in the request is 1, do not try to join it to any group.
   -  Delete all MonitorProvider allocations using a single SQL statement.
   -  Prioritize the requests based on the birth time too.
   -  Some miscellaneous improvements.

Etrack Incident = ET765029
Associated Primary Etracks = ET763562

Description:
   The hot catalog backup feature did not work with images that had been
   archived using the catalog archiving feature.  Prior to this fix, if the
   catalog archiving feature had been used to archive images, the backup job
   generated from a hot catalog backup policy would fail with a status 67
   on a UNIX or Linux master server and with a status 1 (partially
   successful) on a Windows master server.

Etrack Incident = ET789170
Associated Primary Etracks = ET702600

Description:
   Vault duplication jobs were forcing a dismount/re-mount of media in drives
   while processing a batch of images on a tape. This was happening because
   more than one duplication job was active at the same time in the system
   and the media and device selection (MDS) was asking the resource broker
   (RB) to unload drives so that the other job could use it.  Now the
   duplicate writer is not unloaded if told by MDS to do so.
   
   If you want pre 6.0MP4 behavior, you can create the following touch file:
      <install_path>/netbackup/db/config/RB_UNLOAD_DUP_WRITER_ON_DEMAND.

Etrack Incident = ET792327 ET792328 ET803918 ET808971 ET843451 ET847076

Description:
   A logic error has been identified and corrected in daemons that run on
   Veritas NetBackup master, media, and client servers.  Successful access to
   and manipulation of this logic error could potentially lead to arbitrary
   command execution with elevated privileges on a vulnerable system.
   
   For customers who need to back out this patch and want to automate the
   down-rev process on their clients using the Update_clients script can
   contact Support to obtain a revised bpinst file for their respective
   version.
   
   The following scenarios do NOT require a new bpinst from Support:
   
   - If you are downgrading to 50MP7 or higher, 51MP6 or higher,
       or 6.0MP4 or higher.
   
   - If you are running Windows on your server.
   
   - If you are only downgrading any of the following addons:
     - DB agents (DB2, Lotus Notes, Oracle, SAP, Sybase, or Informix)
     - Encryption (all key lengths)
     - Java
     - Advanced Client
     - BMR master or BMR boot server
     - NDMP
     - Vault
     - GDM (5.x only)

Description:
   If a hot catalog backup policy (policy type NBU_Catalog) was set up for
   a UNIX clustered NetBackup master server that included the Vault option
   and the /usr/openv/netbackup/vault/sessions directory was a link pointing
   to the shared drive in the cluster configuration, then the data in the
   sessions directory was not properly included in the catalog backup image.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET794270

Description:
   Script-based BLI backups were not cleaning up checkpoint files properly.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, you can manually delete the checkpoints using the

Etrack Incident = ET631436

Description:
   A problem existed that caused NOM to not show bprd and bpdbm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET777860

Description:
   Changes were made to clean up the following Policy Execution Manager tasks:
   -  Switched data types from int to bool if used as a boolean.  
   -  Added error checking to the job submission queue to fix a memory leak.
   -  Changed the Policy Execution Manager to return the status
         EC_backup_error or EC_malloc_failed if an error is encountered
         starting child jobs for a parent job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET796104

Description:
   A race condition occurred when two add_files queries were received
   simultaneously and both attempted to create the catstore folder.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET784650
Associated Primary Etracks = ET829340

Description:
   NetBackup communication between components that were separated by a
   firewall did not work.  For instance, when a master server was behind the
   firewall and a media server was outside the firewall, all communication
   from the master server had an internal host address that was not accessible
   from outside systems.
   
   This is the same when clients and other services are in question.  

Additional Notes:
   To activate NAT address replacement, systems outside of the firewall should
   have the FIREWALL_IN parameter specified in their bp.conf/registry.
   
   Format:  FIREWALL_IN=hostname1,nat_address1|hostname2,nat_address2|...
   
   Where: <hostname> is the name of the host system that needs to be accessed
   and <nat_address> is the actual NAT address for the firewall to do
   forwarding.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET795448

Description:
   Changes were made to not send Storage Unit Events when only updating
   capacity information.  Too many of these events were being generated and
   impacting performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET793447

Description:
   Changes have been made to reduce the bpdbm CPU consumption by doing fewer

Etrack Incident = ET797992

Description:
   NetBackup 5.x media servers fail when running tpautoconf -sync, if the
   global database host is a 6.0 server.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, delete the device configuration on the 5.x media
   server and reconfigure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET781386

Description:
   There may be cases where configuring either shared libraries or shared
   drives does not perform the necessary device configuration updates on all
   hosts.  For example, if host A has drive D1 configured, and then the wizard
   is used to configure host B, host B will have the drive added as shared,
   but host A's configuration will not be updated.  This results in two hosts
   scanning the drive.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do the following:
   -  Always use the wizard to configured devices.
   -  Always scan all media servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797150

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797080

Description:
   When the parent job does stream discovery the
   getRealAndVirtualPolicyByName() gives an error and sometimes fails
   because the sig library was not initialized.  Currently the sig library
   is only initialized for catalog backups instead of for all backup types.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET802582
Associated Primary Etracks = ET793913

Description:
   The NetBackup Java user interface no longer displays “square box”
   characters in the Media “Side” column for the second AcsLsm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET796480

Description:
   Backup jobs would occasionally fail with error status 26 (client/server
   handshaking failed).  The bpbrm log would show the following:
   
   08:34:12.336 [2764.3504] <2> bpbrm multiplexed_backup: calling

Description:
   Synthetic backups no longer fail with the error message, "termination
   requested by bpcoord(665)".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797083

Description:
   The parent job no longer core dumps upon exiting an application when trying
   to log a VxUL message after an orb shutdown.  The parent job was modified
   to remove all VxUL messages that are being logged after an orb shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797388 ET798930

Description:
   Multiple backups for the same client and policy that were started at the
   same time created a situation where an image was being validated at
   the same time the previous backup for the client and policy was being
   validated.
   
   One of the final steps in image validation is to go back through previous
   backups for the client and policy and update the TIR meta data to allow TIR
   data to be pruned.  However, since the previous backup for the client and
   policy was still being validated, it could not be updated and the following
   log message (and error report entry) were generated:
   
   17:27:33.723 [11812] <16> get_last_backup_lock: Bad image header:
   many-non-multi-stream_1158100028_FULL, error: file read failed (13)
   
   bpdbm was exiting with a normal status, so the backup was successful.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, wait before starting backups for the same client and
   policy.

Additional Notes:
   With this change, any failures in updating tir meta data in image
   validation will result in a conditional success for the backup job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797999 ET797370

Description:
   Changes were made to clarify error message that may have been unclear.
   This involved no functional change.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack Incident = ET796332

Description:
   Changes were made to bpbrmds to eliminate core dumps when performing a
   manual or scheduled relocation of a DSSU on media servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET800221

Description:
   Parent images have no associated .f file, and as a result have a file count
   of zero.  When images with a zero file count are validated, a function to
   tally the number of files is called.  This function should not be called
   when there is no associated .f file.  The logic to determine whether there
   is an associated .f file has been corrected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET800184
Associated Primary Etracks = ET798913

Description:
   Resolved an issue that caused, "Frequent status code 805 - invalid jobid,"
   errors to occur.

Additional Notes:
   This condition occurred when children jobs were retired due to exceeding
   the time allowed in incomplete state.  The parent job being resumed either
   manually or automatically resulted in an 805 error due to the job having
   a jobid of -1.  This fix prevents the child from starting since it is not
   resumable.  The new result will correctly be a 200 error if no children
   can be started.  An indication of this will be written to the pem log.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET801046

Description:
   The job monitor would cancel the catalog backup job after 20 minutes.
   The nbgenjob ping interval to the job manager was changed to three minutes
   to keep the job from being cancelled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET799129

Description:
   The synthetic backups were not scheduling correctly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET802987

Description:
   A Hot Catalog Backup of a large catalog with a large number of files can
   sometimes end up in a deadlock between the NetBackup UNIX agent bpbkar and
   the NetBackup media server process bpbrm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET803630

Description:
   Changes were added to correct an issue that casued the resource broker (RB)
   to hang at startup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET799867

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager inefficiently processes policy change
   notifications when performing housekeeping tasks which may slow job
   submission.  This inefficiency can occur from the user interface if the
   user selects all policies and then activates or deactivates the list of
   policies.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not generate a large number of policy changes all
   at once before a window opens. Instead, amortize them over time to limit
   the impact on the Policy Execution Manager.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET800184
Associated Primary Etracks = ET798913

Description:
   The jobid of a child checkpoint restart job would be set to -1 when
   a 196 status occurred.  The result was an 805 error if the parent was
   resumed because the jobid -1 gets resumed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET804921

Description:
   The calendar schedule would not run when the available window spanned
   across the specified day.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   The policy monitor would show as being down in Initial Data Load status
   page.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET800841

Description:
   Sometimes manual jobs would not start through either the user interface
   or the command line. This would happen if PEM lost connection with NBJM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET804850

Description:
   An issue that caused catalog backups to hang on a retry have been fixed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET805807

Description:
   Cancelling an incomplete job that failed with a 196 error, then restarting
   nbpem would cause the job to show as done in the Activity Monitor.
   However, if the job is set to done in the Activity Monitor, a retry or
   resume of the active job will not show up in the Activity Monitor.

Workaround:
   If there are checkpoint restart jobs that show as complete but have a
   status of 196 and pem needs to be restarted, remove the pempersist file
   before pem is started again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET806779

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET806990

Description:
   Service credentials had expired and because of that, the NOM client was
   unable to log into the NOM server.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, you can renew the credential using the command line
   interface provided by vssat.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET803649

Description:
   Jobs would queue indefinitely, following a media server reset while

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET808037 ET807124

Description:
   The SharePoint Portal, when configured with a network name in a network,
   load-balanced, medium farm configuration, would not relink the portal
   databases after a restore.

Additional Notes:
   Please refrain from using a local IP address when configuring portals and
   team sites. SharePoint communicates to all the load-balanced, front-end
   servers to get information about the Portal/Team Site when they are backed
   up or restored. If there is a Portal/Team Site that is tied locally to one
   of the load-balanced servers, then other front-end servers will not be
   cognizant of the local names. It will result in backup and restore failures
   for the local portals and team sites.
   
   Please use fully qualified domain names or IP addresses (such as,
   http://10.80.138.80 instead of http://vitualportal) when configuring
   portals and team sites with a network name in a network, load-balanced
   environment. A SharePoint application generates exceptions when virtual
   servers that are specified that cannot be resolved by the application while
   committing and reconnecting the restored databases. These errors can be
   tracked with the help of tar logs in NetBackup\logs\tar on the database
   client and spswrapper log files in NetBackup\logs\spps folder in the
   sharepoint front end servers.
   
   The workaround for this scenario is to use the IP address while

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET774674

Description:
   When a bad drive or bad tape is mounted and the mount fails, the Media and
   Device Selection (MDS) will down the drive and retry using other
   drives/media.  If this happened to be the scan host for this drive, MDS
   would not clear the scanning assignment.  Subsequently the device allocator
   (DA) would bring the drive back up.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET771156 ET806039

Description:
   When drive or library paths are swapped, and devices are re-discovered
   using the wizard, users may see drives or libraries with an "empty" path.
   This makes the device unusable and it must be deleted and reconfigured.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET772110

Description:
   NetBackup would show the incorrect version number when it was installed as
   Media Server.  For example, bpgetconfig -s >host< (or the appropriate
   bpjava* protocol) would not return the patch level if initiated across
   UNIX <-> Windows boundaries, for instance,

Etrack Incident = ET828665

Description:
   A problem that occurred when the following conditions existed has been
   fixed:
   
   1) The schedule associated with the DSSU initiates relocation operations.
   2) All completed images on the DSSU have already been relocated.
   3) New, uncompleted images are in the process of being written to the
      DSSU because of new backup operations.
   
   There were no images that could be relocated and the job terminated with
   an error status of 190.  No errors had actually occurred but the resultant
   messages gave the user the impression that something was wrong.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET828100

Description:
   The cluster package and monitoring configuration was incorrect when
   installing with a fully qualified virtual name on HP serviceGuard
   and SunCluster clusters.

   Approximately 3 seconds after you have attempted to stop a NetBackup
   Service you will notice that progress bar zooms across the screen and
   disappears before the service has had a chance to do an orderly shutdown,
   causing the stop failure to be reported.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET819159

Description:
   An expire from the user interface of a snapshot-based backup image copy
   failed with the following message in the bpfis log.

   several Terabytes (TB).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET828735
Associated Primary Etracks = ET821288

Description:
   When using vnetd only for client connect, all backups in the multiplexing
   group would fail with a 41 status ("network connection timed out") if one
   client cannot be contacted.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, run the backups as non-multiplexed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET802903

Description:
   A problem existed where a catalog backup would run however it did not
   appear in the Activity Monitor.

   Pem no longer crashes if there is an attempt to restart a done job from
   the Activity Monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET829683
Associated Primary Etracks = ET814470

Description:
   Empty paths on file entries were causing backups to fail with a status 1
   and an entry in the bpdbm log similar to the following:
   
   11:29:18.781 [5216.3708] <32> add_files: File:
   v:\src\common\libcatalog\nbe_string.h Line: 434: null pointerFunction:
   utf8_strlen
   
   With this patch, the backup will still fail if a null or empty path is
   detected, but an entry similar to the following will appear in the
   NetBackup error report:
   
   A null or empty path was provided for policy1_1160000001_FULL at entry 2501

Additional Notes:
   A null or empty path string is usually caused by a failure in the client
   device.  Check for patches from the device manufacturer to address the
   root cause.
   
   There is a known issue with NetApp filers configured for Chinese locales
   that produces this problem.  NetApp has a file history patch that addresses
   the issue:
   
   NetApp Bug ID: 195779    
   Title: NDMP DMA shows no file names after a backup with 7.0.x    
   
   Description:
   
   Empty NFS pathnames will be returned in the file history for non-ASCII  
   filenames if the root volume's language is not set to C/POSIX or    
   the language setting of the volume being backed up differs from the  
   root volume's language setting.  
   
   Workaround:
   
   Make sure the language setting of the root volume matches that of  
   the volume being backed up.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET805843

Description:
   bpdbm uses the notification service to notify the PEM and JM components
   when policies are updated.  When the call to the notification service
   failed, the bpdbm child process would terminate with little information on
   the cause of the failure.  With this patch, the cause of the failed call to
   the notification service will be logged, and an entry will be made in the
   NetBackup error report for the termination of the child bpdbm process.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET797083

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831242

Description:
   On large file systems with a large number of images, disk staging would not
   free space fast enough to prevent concurrent backups from failing with 129
   errors.  (Refer also to ET774846.)

Additional Notes:
   When a backup to a disk storage unit with staging completes, the percent
   used is compared with the high water mark. If the percent used is equal to
   or greater than the high water mark, a bpdm process will be invoked which
   will remove staged images until the low water mark is reached.
   
   To disable this behavior, create the "IGNORE_HIGH_WATER_MARK" touch file in
   the netbackup/bin directory.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831331
Associated Primary Etracks = ET829395

Description:
   The bpduplicate command would fail, resulting in a core dump.  This would
   occur if bpduplicate, while running on a media server, tried to invoke
   bpduplicate on the master using a bidfile.  This would happen most
   frequently as part of disk staging.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831415

Description:
   When a request to the EMM server to change an expiration date for a media

Etrack Incident = ET819040

Description:
   A job that was added to a multiplexed group would show an incorrect

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET834952

Description:
   When a longer frequency backup (such as a full backup) for a client failed
   and could not be retried due to an exceeded failure history, nbpem would
   initiate a shorter frequency backup, if one was configured and due at the
   same time (such as an incremental). This job would also be retried if it
   failed.
   
   A change was made to the failure history to resolve this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET831460

Description:
   Changed the location of the pempersist file so it is shared in a

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET837657

Description:
   Some of the connections between the media server and client were not
   affected by the CLIENT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT configuration value for database
   agent backups.  A hard-coded value of one minute was used instead.
   
   This patch fixes the media server to use the CLIENT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT for

Etrack Incident = ET841643

Description:
   bpmedialist -mcontents command terminated abnormally without notifying NBJM.
   The job was declared abandoned after a while. As a result, NBJM failed on
   an assertion check while cancelling the job.
   
   After NBJM was restarted, NBPEM could not communicate with NBJM because all
   of its threads were hung on a corba call to ping NBJM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack Incident = ET839365
Associated Primary Etracks = ET829855

Description:
   The status backup report would report no data or it would report data only
   with the wrong hostname.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET844039

Description:
   In some instances, it is possible for a media server to have a robotic
   drive configured but no corresponding robot entry in the database.  In this
   case, the device monitor request to the database is "short-circuiting".  In
   other words, whatever has been retrieved up until the offending record is
   displayed, subsequent data is lost.
   
   The fix for this problem is to mark the drive as "AVR" control and continue
   normally.  Therefore, if such a configuration occurs, these drives will
   always have a status of robot DOWN.  If you see this, you need to make sure
   that the host for the "AVR" drive path has a robotic entry which matches
   the drive's residence.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET844043

Description:
   When device configuration changes are made, occasionally this will require
   that all hosts sharing a drive, be restarted.  Previous to this patch, the
   device monitor is showing "RESTART" for all the paths - even those paths on
   hosts that have had their Device Management Service or Daemon restarted.
   This patch changes the device monitor so that the RESTART status is
   displayed only for the paths on hosts whose Device Manager have not yet
   been restarted.  
   
   NOTE: NetBackup may still not use this drive until all hosts' Device
   Manager have been restarted.
   
   In addition, the unsupported option for vmoprcmd "-reset_ltid_restarted_bit"
   has been changed so that it works on back-rev media servers.  Also, a new
   option "-get_host_restart_list" has been added to provide a list of all
   the hosts for which NetBackup is waiting to have the Device Manager
   restarted.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET842109

Description:
   After executing bpdown or NetBackup stop, the bpdbm cleanup process was  
   continuing to run. It was attempting to notify other processes that were
   terminated.  With this fix, the bpdbm cleanup process checks the status of
   the parent bpdbm process and terminates the cleanup if the parent bpdbm
   process has been terminated.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, make sure cleanup is not running before you shut
   down NetBackup.  You can so this by running bpps and looking for a child
   bpdbm process, or by inspecting the bpdbm log for Q_IMAGE_DELETE queries
   that have not finished.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET843993
Associated Primary Etracks = ET795418

Description:
   It was possible to create a media server and cluster with the same name.
   However, depending on which one was used first could create problems at

   To avoid this issue, clean the database with the nbemmcmd command or
   direct SQL.

   "nbemmcmd -deletemedia -mediaid <> -originhost NONE"
   
   Changes have been added in this pack that accept "NONE" as a valid origin
   host and as a special name.

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET602232.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET614666 ET613688

Description:
   If catalog compression was used on a UNIX master server, the bpdbm
   process would not remove client images properly during catalog cleanup if
   those images were compressed.
   
   Over time, the disk space consumed by these images that were not removed
   properly during catalog cleanup can be significant, although the exact
   amount of extra disk space is highly dependant on retention level and
   catalog compression configurable settings.  (This problem does not affect
   Windows master servers.)

Additional Notes:
   Avoiding a "disk full" condition by having sufficient available disk space
   for the image catalog prevents any operational problems.
   
   If NetBackup 6.0 has been in use for some time and this problem has been
   encountered, it is possible that the disk space consumed by the image
   catalog (the /usr/openv/netbackup/db/images directory) will shrink
   noticeably the first time that catalog cleanup is run after this fix is
   applied.  Because this is an expected result of applying this fix, do not
   be concerned about this reduction in disk space consumption, no usable
   files have been deleted.
   
   Symantec recommends that a current catalog backup be completed and
   available for recovery before applying the fix in case something unexpected
   happens and there is a need to recover the catalog from the current catalog
   backup image be encountered.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET615534

Description:
   Jobs would fail with a status 25 because bptm could not communicate with
   nbjm on the master server when going through a firewall.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, configure the firewall so that it will wait a longer
   time before closing idle connections.

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET609217.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET615304

Description:
   Fixed a problem that caused the NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (nbpem)
   to crash with a "60patches/ENG/NB_60MP2_EEB_20060425" in place, when Vault
   started.  

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET615305 and ET200604.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET615531

Description:
   The MEDIA_UNMOUNT_DELAY function was not always honored for standalone

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET615646

Description:
   The Windows Backup, Archive and Restore user interface did not display all
   images for restore (the older backup images were not displayed).  Also,
   when browsing a client which has a large number of non-standard backups,
   bprd would core dump.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, use the Java user interface and manually select the
   start date to browse older images.

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET579399.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET589069

Description:

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET615568.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET614778

Description:
   Tracing messages that should appear at level 6 would appear at level 5 and
   make the logs less readable.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET614736

**Description:
   The Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) server uses a relational database to
   store media and device configurations.  When the file system runs out of
   disk space, the relational database files that the EMM database uses can
   become corrupt.  This can cause the EMM database to fail to start and
   cause backups to fail on the master server.  To correct this situation,
   the EMM server process monitors disk space and safely shuts down the
   EMM database in the event of a disk-full condition.  

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET392256.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET615287

**Description:
   Changes were made to the retention levels in Host Properties to resolve
   issues that affected the Retention mapping settings in VAULT.  This change
   corrects a potential data loss issue for Vault customers who use the Vault
   retention mappings feature via the user interface.  For additional
   information, refer to TechNote 282996, on the Symantec Support Web site.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, disable the use of the Vault retention mappings.  

Additional Notes:
   This is a data loss issue that could cause vaulted media to expire sooner
   than might be expected.  Again, refer to TechNote 282996 for additional
   details.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET616343

Description:
   Media will now be deallocated after a failed multiple copy backup and
   duplicated jobs.

Additional Notes:

   VSS Transportable backup of an Exchange server will fail eseutil
   validation for Exchange data that exists on a mountpoint volume.  

Additional Notes:
   Refer also to ET536641.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET618092

Description:
   NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (nbpem) crashed because of problems
   with the pem persist file read and write.  

Additional Notes:
   When reading the pem persist file, the first line that could be read was
   shifted off by 1 character.  This could cause inconsistencies in the first
   job in the file and occasionally even a crash.
   
   Refer also to ET543123.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET614250

Description:
   Jobs would sometimes not run when they were scheduled to run.  

Additional Notes:
   Policy Execution Manager (pem) would calculate the scheduled time of a
   job.  If the job did not run during the window, it may not run in the
   next.  This could happen with calendar or frequency scheduling.
   
   Refer also to ET622829.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET619764

Description:

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

Etrack Incident = ET613657

Description:
   All Windows BMR Boot Servers now contain a new wizard to assist in
   creating a CD image to be used for the Fast Restore feature.  

   This new feature is an exciting fast-windows-restore feature to the Bare
   Metal Restore (BMR) option.  This feature can perform a complete restore
   of a Windows system in as little as 15 minutes.  This feature means it is
   no longer necessary to create DOS-based floppies or CDs.   In addition,
   this new feature enables BMR to operate in a low-infrastructure mode,
   where the BMR Boot Server, Windows Shared Resource Tree, and the
   Prepare-To-Restore step are no longer mandatory to restore a Windows
   System.  

   For a description of how to use this new feature, along with feature
   requirements and limitations, please refer to the Symantec TechDoc #283726.
   This document can be accessed on the Symantec Support Web site using the
   following URL:

Etrack Incident = ET425117

Description:
   Potential access violations, due to a (possibly) incorrect printf argument
   list, are now averted.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET425322

Description:
   There were a few instances in the code where the image query protocol
   version was set to 0, which was a pre-NetBackup 5.0 image version ID.
   Some image queries would fail if the size of the total data being backed
   up was larger than 2 Terabytes in one job.
   
   This issue has been corrected, thus enabling image queries on backups
   greater than 2 Terabytes to work properly.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET427178

Description:
   When sharing tape drives between media servers running both NetBackup 6.0
   and NetBackup 5.x, a problem existed with the NetBackup 6.0 Scan Hosts.
   If the drive being scanned was assigned to a NetBackup 5.x media server,
   then the NetBackup 6.0 Scan Host might not stop scanning.  This resulted
   in SCSI reservation conflicts and DOWN'ed drives on the NetBackup 5.x
   assigned host.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not share drives between media servers running
   different versions of NetBackup.  Instead, pool your drives such that all
   of your NetBackup 5.x media servers share one pool of  drives and all of
   your NetBackup 6.0 media servers share a pool of different drives.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428597

Description:
   When running multi-streamed Windows Open File Backup backups to back up
   open or active files, some Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP) cachefiles in the
   format of, _vxfiVspCacheFile_1.VSP, may be left behind by backup jobs that
   have already completed. This does not occur with non-streamed backup jobs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET429921

Description:
   When upgrading from NetBackup 5.x to NetBackup 6.0, the
   NETBACKUP_RELATIONAL_DATABASE_FILES directive was not added to the list of
   files included in cold catalog backup.  The command, bpsyncinfo -add_paths
   "NETBACKUP_RELATIONAL_DATABASE_FILES," is run automatically during the
   patch installation to add this directive to the cold catalog backup
   configuration.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET430039

Description:
   NBDB (for Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) and BMR) database recovery failed
   if the master server had a newer catalog backup image than the one used in
   Disaster Recovery (DR).  On Windows platforms, it logged an error message
   in the progress log and displayed a error message dialog.  On UNIX
   platforms, because of a defect in the Java user interface, it would only
   report an error message in the log and all restore jobs appeared in job
   monitor as successful.

Additional Notes:
   With this fix, a user is able to recover from an older catalog backup even
   though the user has a newer catalog backup image on the master server.
   
   Full catalog disaster recovering from an older catalog backup is a
   “roll-back” operation, that has potential of losing data. Users should
   understand the implications and use it with caution.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET414315

Description:
   When performing an Optical backup, the optical media will not use side B
   once side A becomes filled.  Instead a new platter is used.  Once all
   of the platters are filled on side A, side B of the platters is filled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431050

Description:
   This pack corrects the frequency mode scheduling algorithm to function the
   same as it did in the pre-NetBackup 6.0 product, when the frequency was a
   multiple of 24 hours.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET422114

Description:
   A problem was corrected that caused the NetBackup Policy Execution
   Manager (nbpem) to dump a core file on shutdown.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET425135

Description:
   Failed snapshots no longer cause "job retires" to become "new jobs".  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET421439

Description:
   Manual backups would not start immediately if the NetBackup Policy
   Execution Manager (PEM) was started first.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET432263

Description:
   For a Hot Catalog Backup, the relational database (NBDB/Sybase ASA) backup
   job treated a cumulative and differential incremental backup the same and
   only included the transaction log in the backup.  This could create
   problems when recovering the ASA database if the differential backup media
   created before the last cumulative had expired.  The differential backups
   contain the transaction logs that are necessary to roll forward from the
   last full backup.  To fix this problem, the cumulative incremental backup
   will be a full backup for the ASA files.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET430274

Description:
   Because of a logic error in the handling of "bptm -delete_all_expired",
   the expired media was not being deleted.  This prevented recycling of the
   media.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428121

Description:
   Upon de-allocating a drive, the Device Allocator (DA) was selecting a Scan
   Host as if there had been no previous or existing Scan Host.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET421579

Description:
   NetBackup tracks the media manufacturer and serial number in the
   EMM database.  Some drives do not support this data while some do.
   If drives that do not support this type of data are added into a library
   with drives that do support this type data, the database can end up with
   multiple media with the same manufacturer and serial number information.
   This condition would lead to problems loading the media at a future time.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET430429

Description:
   The transport of log messages from NBSL to the NOM Server was failing and
   causing the Host Session to go down.
   
   POSIX-based systems can set either EWOULDBLOCK or EAGAIN when send() fails.
   TAO (part of PSP) was testing just for EWOULDBLOCK.  All other errnos were
   considered harmful.  This prevented the rest of the data from being flushed
   out when send () raised EAGAIN.  The clients never received the whole data
   which caused the hang.  A fix for PSP was provided that prevents this
   issue from happening again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET411601

Description:
   An error occurred while creating a SUSE Shared Resource Tree (SRT).
   Cleanup of this SRT would fail and display the following incorrect message:

Description:
   Data tapes are no longer be treated as cleaning tapes and are FROZEN by
   NetBackup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495033

Description:
   The Device Monitor shows the same tape mounted in multiple drives.  This
   tape is assigned to a NetBackup 5.x media server.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not share drives between NetBackup 6.0 media
   servers and NetBackup 5.x media servers.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack Incident = ET496956

Description:
   A problem was causing the Windows open file backup to not show retries in
   the Activity Monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET420304

Description:
   Originally, vmscd, was a single process that serviced requests from the
   EMM server synchronously. Because of this, the EMM server was not
   receiving the request response in a timely manner. In some cases, the
   EMM server thinks that vmscd has exited, thus, triggering certain
   operations that were redundant and in some cases harmful.
   
   Now there are two vmscd processes. The parent vmscd process receives
   requests from the EMM server and services them as soon as possible. The
   child vmscd process collects the drive status from back level media
   servers.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496080

Description:
   For media with image expiration set to infinity, nbpushdata would pass an
   incorrect value for infinity to the EMM database; thus, the media could
   not be queried.
   
   nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid <media_id>
   NBEMMCMD, Version:6.0(20050906)
   
   The function returned the following failure status:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428319

Description:
   A problem existed that caused the nbpushdata -remove command to fail.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, the EMM data base was dropped and recreated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495345

Description:
   The default start date, 01/01/1970 will not work for 'bpchangeprimary' in
   any locale that does not display dates as mm/dd/yyyy.

Workaround:
   If the start date is entered in the correct format for the locale it will
   be accepted.
   
   For example:
   
   bpchangeprimary -copy 1 -sl sName -pn cjPName-st FULL -pt MS-Windows-NT
   -sd 1070-01-01
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495866 ET496960

   for a job exit status from pem unless the -w flag was used on the request.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428657

Description:
   When you perform a raw backup with the encryption option enabled, using
   the block device, and then you attempt a restore of the raw image to the
   block device, the restore job would finish with a zero (0), however, the
   data was not restored correctly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET497777

Description:
   Could not inventory legacy TS8 libraries as TL8.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET497271

Description:
   If any inetd entry is missing on a client and update_clients is used to
   push NetBackup client software to it, update_clients will show an error
   message in the log file.  Corrections were made to the temporary file names
   so that inet.conf on the client is updated properly and no error is
   generated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET497944

Description:
   Under extremely heavy load in the Device Allocator, the DA may crash EMM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496962

Description:
   Some vital logs were not displaying correctly.
   
   The form that Log:DbLogMsg is being called in emmserver source files was
   incorrect whenever it was multi-lined in the code. As a result, only part
   of the log message would survive and the important log information was
   lost.
   
   Currently many are in the wrong form of:
   
    Log::DbLogMsg( EMMLOG_DEBUG3, who,
      "<MANUALCONF> Control host name is NOT passed in, "
      "Assuming incoming host < %s > as the control host",
      machineName.c_str() ) ;
   
   The quotes were not being processed correctly so the line starting with
   "Assuming” would not appear.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498496

Description:
   Non-robotic tape drives that contain unlabelled media are no longer
   automatically assigned to non-robotic media specific mount requests.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498519

Description:
   In a rare condition, one or more backups would be corrupt when using
   Inline Tape Copy (ITC) with multiplexed backups.  This could happen under
   the following conditions:
   
   - ITC was enabled with two or more active copies.
   - Multiplexing was enabled with two or more active backups.
   - The schedule configuration had "continue if the copy fails" flag
     set for the copy that failed in the next step.
   - A copy other than the first active copy encountered "end of media", so
     a new media was needed for this copy.  Then, there was a problem getting
     or configuring media (for example, writing the media header) such that
     this copy failed before continuing the backup.
   - The last buffer written to the first active copy prior to the "end of
     media" on the other copy was not the first active backup.

Workaround:
   To avoid this problem, do one of the following:
   
   - Edit the schedule configuration to disable the "continue if copy fails"
     flag.
   - Disable multiplexing.
   - Disable ITC.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428317

Description:
   The back-level media server request, V_QUERY_CLEAN_BYROBNUM, would cause

Etrack Incident = ET420766

Description:
   The vmoprcmd -devmon ds command is failing with a Corba exception.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET499611

Description:
   Synthetic backup could have potential data loss in following cases:
   - Last full/synthetic, full expired/deleted backup, followed by one or
     more incremental backups, and a synthetic backup.
   - Last incremental/full backup catalog was compressed before the next
     incremental backup takes place.
   - TIR records in the last incremental backup are missing for various
     reasons  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506459

Description:
   Media Servers that share drives on versions of NetBackup older than
   NetBackup 6.0 receive host_not_registered errors when attempting to
   decree another media server is unavailable.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495457

Description:
   The base NetBackup UNIX Agent has now been integrated with VxFS
   Checkpoints.  It has been modified to detect VxFS checkpoints using the
   mount table's special options, and then use VxFS supplied APIs to detect
   sparseness in them, and handle it accordingly.
   
   Without these changes, a base NetBackup UNIX Agent could not tell if the
   zero or smaller physical size of VxFS checkpoints, as compared to the
   reported file size, is due to actual sparseness of the file or not. The
   result was the base NetBackup UNIX Agent had to look through the whole
   file and try to determine sparseness; thus, slowing down the backups
   considerably.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET293930

Description:
   This fix improves the performance of the NetBackup Error log collection
   logic because the NBLogCollector was not seeking to a known spot for
   performance reasons. To address this issue, logic was changed to get
   newly-added error log messages by using a stat() system call to learn the
   modified time of the error log file and keeping the opened file for the
   next collect() call to maintain the current read position of the file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496560

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) no longer causes a core dump.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507270 ET507266 ET507656

Description:
   The following three issues have been address:
   
   -  Under certain conditions backups may not schedule.  This would happen
      because of a problem in computing the next time a job is due.  Windows
      were not processed correctly if a backup should have run in a previous
      window and if the next window opened or closed at a different time.
   
   -  The Advanced Client VSS snapshot backup produced an 805 error.  A
      mistake in nbpem's logic would cause a child job to be resumed or
      restarted using an old job id.  It would use the jobid of the parent,
      resulting in and an invalid jobid.
   
   -  The scheduler would always execute full backups, even for incremental
      backups, if the BMR option was on.  nbpem would use the wrong criteria
      for a last backup query made for a parent job that did not have
      multiple data streams enabled.  The result was no last full backup
      being found, so a full backup would be run instead of an incremental.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506080 ET566045

Description:
   In a cluster under NetBackup Access Control the credential associated with
   the physical node name is no longer picked up rather than the virtual host
   name associated with NetBackup.  And in a cluster, an attempt will be made
   to use a credential created using bpnbat -loginmachine for the virtual
   host name.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, create credential files for both the physical host
   names and the virtual hostnames for each node in the cluster. For details
   on how to create credentials, refer to the NetBackup System Administrator's
   Guide Volume II, Chapter 1, "Access Management".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495479

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) no longer causes a core dump when NOM
   is configured.  The core dump would occur when NetBackup 5.x media servers
   were configured to a NetBackup 6.0 master server and NBSL would attempt to
   collect data from the 5.x media server.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507657

Description:
   An error would occur when nbpushdata used emmlib_DeleteHost to remove the
   NDMP host server.  An error similar to the following was written to the
   nbemm log.  
   
   11/11/05 15:54:41.185 [Debug] NB 51216 nbemm 111 PID:13393 TID:1196157872

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498714

Description:
   A change was made to address conflicts in the EMM_Media table
   after an upgrade. An EMM server change was made in the
   helperAssignUpgradeImageInfoToMergeTable to accept "NONE" as
   a valid assigned host name. This change was needed for the
   following command:
   
   # /bp/bin/admincmd/nbemmcmd -forcemerge -assignedhost NONE -mediaid A00000
   -originhost pjcbk001 -reversemerge
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498037

Description:
   User names and group names longer than 32 characters were not supported.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, you should use group names and user names that are
   smaller than 32 characters.  

Additional Notes:
   Even with this fix, max possible gname and uname allocated is 1024 chars
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507646

Description:
   In certain cases when NetBackup Access Control was enabled, long-lived
   processes, such as, nbemm, nbpem, nbjm, nbrb, nbproxy, nbsl, and vmd may
   have leaked memory.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509198

Description:
   The SQL SERVER backup would complete normally, however, the client user
   interface would display -1 status.  Improper progress log updates caused
   this issue.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506666

Description:
   A Linux client with an empty or non-existent /etc/resolv.conf file would
   halt at restore time even though the client's original configuration did
   not use the /etc/resolv.conf file.  

Additional Notes:
   Linux Shared Resource Trees (SRT) created after this pack is applied will
   correctly handle an empty or non-existent /etc/resolv.conf file.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509505

Description:
   Spanning media jobs occasionally appeared to be hung, the request would
   continually fail with the message, "ROBOTIC LIBRARY IS DOWN ON SERVER".
   This typically occurred after an earlier failure of,
   "MEDIA SERVER IS CURRENTLY NOT CONNECTED TO MASTER SERVER".  However, the
   media server would show the robot as being up and the host as ACTIVE or
   ACTIVE-TAPE.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET367776

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) no longer hangs in a "stopping" state
   in the Windows Service Manager.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506668

Description:
   For Linux clients, some S-ATA devices were not being handled correctly
   at restore time. Changes contained in this pack load the proper modules
   correctly in the restore environment so the restoration can be performed.

Additional Notes:
   The original problem presents itself when the restore environment boots.
   After loading the SRT, the restoration will stop, requesting for a reboot
   of the client, with a boot order string that contains the ata_piix module.
   
   Even if the client is rebooted and the order string is passed from the boot
   prompt, the message appears again and the restoration can never proceed.
   
   Once this patch is applied on the Boot Server, the SRT needs to be
   recreated for this fix to be available. SRTs created with bmrsrtadm
   versions prior to the one contained in this patch will have the problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509087

Description:
   A change was made that enables vmd to retry and make the connection to
   EMM indefinitely, instead of shutting down if it could not make the
   connection.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET500512

Description:
   There are end case situations especially when a master server cluster node
   goes inactive where the bprdreq -terminate and bpdbm -terminate commands
   in bp.kill_all might take several minutes to complete.  This can cause
   inconsistencies in a cluster enviroment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511942

Description:
   From the NOM user interface, it is not possible to start a service/deamon
   when NetBackup is on UNIX operating systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509733

Description:
   NBSL was occasionally sending negative values for the “free space” and
   “total capacity” of a storage unit (particularly if the values are
   greater than 2^32-1).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET499203

Description:
   bpdbjobs -all_columns takes a segmentation fault in either the FreeJobs()
   or PrintJobs() function with a stack overflow.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511981

Description:
   It is now possible for SAN media servers to be used as write hosts for
   duplicate jobs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET419837

Description:
   Some keys generated by bpkeyutil for standard encryption would cause
   backups to fail.  The failure status is 40 - network connection broken.
   About one out of 256 keys caused this failure.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET512393

Description:
   VxUL queries no longer fail on AIX platforms.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509994

Description:
   Changed the way NetBackup package versions are stored in SRT records so
   that the history of maintenance is preserved.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509547

Description:
   A problem existed that was limited to a DSSU duplication (not a vault or
   manual duplication issue) that would take more than 59 minutes to
   complete.  After 20 minutes, a status 50 occurred, but the underlying
   duplication still had 39 more minutes to finish.  After 59 minutes,
   EMM noticed the "problem" and shut down the job.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET513419

Description:
   NBNos no longer runs in single-threaded mode only.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511008

Description:
   If there is more that one user schedule in a policy, and a schedule is
   not specified in the backup request, the job may fail with a 199 error
   (no open windows).  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, either specify the schedule name in the backup
   request, or do not create more that one user schedule in a policy.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET510797

Description:
   A job that fails with a 196 error (EC_no_attemp_window_close) will be left
   in a “waiting for retry” state instead of being done.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET499144

Description:
   When running multi-streamed Windows Open File Backup backups, jobs would
   fail with a status 200 error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET513486

Description:
   The following back-level SSO interoperability issues have occurred:
   -  Numerous re-registrations were consuming all of vmd's bandwidth on the
      EMM server.
   -  Registration failures would occur because the no-scan-host setting,
      registration retry timer would block back-level servers from releasing
      drives.
   -  Back-level remote scanning of NetBackup 6.0 media servers was failing
      with ENOTSCANHOST and forcing even more registrations to occur.  

Workaround:
   DO NOT SHARE DRIVES BETWEEN 6.0 AND 5.X MEDIA SERVERS.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516562

Description:
   nbemm no longer core dumps with a clustered master server.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511445

Description:
   To improve performance of nbpem, all sorting has been removed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506661

Description:
   After installing NetBackup into a Solaris Shared Resource Tree (SRT), if
   the source of the installation is a CD-ROM, the device is left mounted and
   the CD-ROM cannot be ejected.  

Workaround:
   After installing NetBackup into the Shared Resource Tree, exit bmrsrtadm,
   start bmrsrtadm again, and this time choose the Share Resource Tree that
   was just created.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516645

Description:
   If nbpem received a request to terminate while a terminate request was
   being processed, the Policy Execution Manager (pem) would crash.

   Added support for the following libraries:
   EMC NDMP VTLU
   Falcon Stor
   IBM 3576 Library
   IBM TS7510 Virtualization Engine
   HP MSL-2024 G3 Series
   
   Added support for the following drives:
   IBM 3592E05
   Sony SDX 800v
   
   Updated support for the following libraries:
   ADIC Scalar i2000
   Quantum TZ Media Changer
   
   Updated support for the following drive:
   ADIC i500
   IBM 3592
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET421278

Description:
   Force the UNIX implementations of the BPCD_FORK_CMD_W_STAT_RQST,
   BPCD_FORK_OTHER_CMD_RQST, and BPCD_EXECUTE_CLIENT_CONFIG_RQST protocols
   to wait as long as necessary for the [child] command to complete.
   Previously, the command would have been killed if it did not complete
   within BPCD_TIMEOUT seconds (300). This behavior was unwarranted, and
   was inconsistent with the Windows implementation, which already waits an
   indefinite time.  In addition, supporting code that was not necessary
   was removed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515306

Description:
   At “fall-back time” for daylight savings time, the calendar scheduling
   may repeatedly run the same job.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET514752 ET563731

Description:
   A change made to bpexpdate such that, media IDs that are less than six
   characters, and returned from EMM, were not padded with spaces.  This
   caused bpexpdate -deassignempty to mistakenly deassign media that still
   had valid images on them.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, turn off the automatic start of
   bpexpdate -deassignempty by performing one of the following items:
   
     - On a UNIX master server, create the file,
       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpsched.d/CHECK_EXPIRED_MEDIA_INTERVAL,
       and enter a 0 (zero) on the first and only line of the file.
   
     - On a Windows master server, create the file,
       <install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bpsched.d\CHECK_EXPIRED_MEDIA_INTERVAL,
       and enter a 0 (zero) on the first and only line of the file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507316

Description:
   The bprd log message was off-by-one for process_command().  This lead to
   log messages like:
   
   15:23:10.035 [115624.76592] <2> process_request: command unlisted command
                (114) received  (where 114 is actually get_hostinfo)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519755

Description:
   The partial restore of a database backup fails.  For example, restoring
   a single Oracle tablespace from a backup set.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET518079

Description:
   The vmscd's time-out while communicating with back-level servers was too
   small. Because of this, vmscd would think that the back-level server was
   not running and it used to decree that the host was unavailable.
   
   As part of this fix, the time-out value was raised.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511741

Description:
   vlteject no longer fails with the following error when tapes are taken
   out of the map after long time.
   
   "vmchange eject verify not responding[300]"  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET512872

Description:
   Removed the change events for Error LogMonitoring.  For example, the error
   log collection functionality was removed.  In addition, the
   getLogMessages() idl method supports the error log source; thus, NOM call
   this method for getting error logs.  Finally, the getEventChannel()
   functionality has been removed, resulting in an AFException.

Additional Notes:
   Because of this fix, log monitoring of NOM 6.0 MP2 only works with

Description:
   Pagination on the report in myportal did not work if table was accessed
   after long duration of time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET413396

Description:
   The LANG environment variable was not being properly inherited from the
   master's invocation.  Because the locale was passed as an argument to the
   user server invocation, there was no harm in redundantly performing a
   putenv() from the user server.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET522065

Description:
   Restore to an alternate client (not a master or media server) by a
   media server fails with error status 159:
   
   The licensed features for this system do not permit the backup of a
   remote client (<client> ).  Make sure that the license key is entered
   properly.  In addition, SAN media server licensing should be enforced
   for backup but not for restore to allow maximum flexibility for DRM
   data restoration.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET522555

Description:
   Vault failed to run properly from the user interface in VxSS/NBAC
   configuration.  While in a start session from the user interface, the job
   failed to execute, and nothing appeared in the Activity Monitor.  This was
   observed for any valid user (Administrator) with all the required
   permissions.  This fix enables executions that originate from the user
   interface to be processed properly.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET432239 ET508863

Description:
   Corrected ACS timeouts when the ACSLS server had communication problems
   with the media server.
   
   To correct this problem, a 20 second wait was removed before checking for
   drive readiness on an ACS mount.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET520519

Description:
   A stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability existed in the volume manager
   daemon (vmd) running on NetBackup servers.   If an attacker was able to
   gain access to a vulnerable NetBackup server and successfully exploit this
   issue, it could have lead to arbitrary code execution and resulted in
   unauthorized access with elevated privileges on the targeted system.
   
   This vulnerability impacted only NetBackup server systems and did not
   impact NetBackup client systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET432236

Description:
   Corrected the use of access bits with the mailslot and with the storage
   slots in the robotic libraries.
   
   To correct this issue, add a wait before an eject for Vault-style ejects
   for libraries that take extra long for the mailslot to come ready after
   being accessed.

Additional Notes:
   Access bit checking may require a new device_mappings file, it depends on
   the robot.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET522971

Description:
   NBSL no longer sends deletion events for Jobs to NOM.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516605

Description:
   Under certain conditions, NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) runs out of
   threads. As a result no new jobs can be initiated and the existing
   jobs do not complete.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, kill and restart the NBJM service.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET493991 ET431087

Description:
   An Incremental NetBackup Catalog Backup ends up backing more data
   than necessary.
   
   NetBackup Catalog Backup was re-architected in NetBackup 6.0. The plan
   was to also support NetBackup Catalog Move Detection. While supporting
   that for UNIX by using ctime, in addition to mtime, for deciding on
   which files to backup, inadverently opened the door for more directories
   to be backed up, since the ctime gets changed for parent directories
   of directories under which new catalog is being created. This resulted
   in entire client catalog to be backed up again, if there was any other
   backup done for that client.
   
   The solution provided in this patch is to use NBU's existing TIR w/Move
   Detection logic for NetBackup Catalog Move Detection.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET523400

Description:
   In a cluster, Disk staging (duplication to tape) uses the local node name
   as the media server instead of the virtual name.  Because of this,
   bpduplicate may fail with the error, “host is unreachable (47)”.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496959

Description:
   NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) would deadlock or halt when the connection to
   bpbrm breaks in the middle of a backup job.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516377

Description:
   NBPEM would crash if a thread referenced a deleted object.  This is a
   timing problem and can happen when:
    - A thread decrements the ref count on an object
    - The thread is stalled
    - The object is destroyed (ref count = 0)
    - The stalled thread starts running and it references the destroyed object
   
   The above problem has been corrected by ensuring that the object is not
   referenced after the reference count has been decremented.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496074

Description:
   Restores failed with the following errors in the job log and tar debug log:
   
   job log:
   22:16:27 (4753.046) data buffers out of sequence, expected number 157884,
      received 157886
   23:32:46 (4753.053) data buffers out of sequence, expected number 404927,

   23:32:47 (4753.053) data buffers out of sequence, expected number 404927,
      received 404932
   
   This issue occurred because the HP-UX 11.23 compiler optimized-out
   references to the shared memory control variables.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET425567

Description:
   Fixed memory leak in Policy Execution Manager.  The leak occurred when
   processing any configuration change event sent by NBNos, which passes a
   sequence of name value pairs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516907

Description:
   An exception occurred in NetBackup Generic Job (nbgenjob), where getting
   a policy from nbproxy while performing a stream discovery forced a retry.
   The first retry resulted in a core dump because the internal file list was
   not cleared before rereading the STREAMS file.  To resolve this core
   problem, the stream discovery was changed to clear the internal file list
   before reading the STREAMS file, and to only read the STREAMS file once.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431505

Description:
   Changed nbproxy to catch exceptions when either of the IOR files listed
   below in the var directory are empty to prevent the Policy Execution
   Manager (nbpem) from exiting on startup.
   
   IOR files in var directory are:
   -  nbproxy_pem.ior
   -  nbproxy_pem_email.ior  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, remove the empty IOR files nbproxy_pem.ior and
   nbproxy_pem_email.ior from the var directory.  On UNIX, the var directory
   resides in /usr/openv, and on Windows, it resides in VERITAS\NetBackup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET425565

Description:
   For user and manual backups, changes have been made that prevent Policy
   Execution Manager (nbpem) core dumps by fixing the message queue locking
   function.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET423142

Description:
   Fix CT_EXCHANGE backup job when streaming is not enabled.  Changed Policy
   Execution Manager (nbpem) to set stream number to zero for the child
   CT_EXCHANGE job.  Nbpem was setting it to -1, which made the delta time
   option (-dt) that was passed to Bpbrm, zero.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET427069

Description:
   Parent job (nbgenjob) did not detect that the Policy Execution Manager
   (nbpem) went down so it waited indefinitely for a response.  Changed
   nbgenjob to ping nbpem using the birth time that was returned to determine
   if Policy Execution Manager was running.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET518632

Description:
   Fixed NetBackup Resource Broker (nbrb) so that it disconnects from
   Sybase ASA when it receives a suspend before a cold catalog backup.
   If nbrb does not disconnect from ASA, when Sybase ASA is shutdown for
   the cold catalog backup, warnings similar to the following appear in
   the Sybase server.log file: Connection terminated abnormally.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498975

Description:
   Idle media servers no longer go offline (such as, "ACTIVE-DISK", "OFFLINE").
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET520924

Description:
   The function, decree_host_unavailable, from NetBackup 5.x media servers
   was causing the NetBackup 6.0 media servers to go offline.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET520279

Description:
   The scanability setting of media servers in the EMM database is being
   overwritten by the ltid processes of the media servers.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET518557

Description:
   Using the wizard to reconfigure NDMP-attached tape drives no longer fails.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519239

Description:
   "bpexpdate –recalculate" and "bpexpdate -backupid" both allow image
   expiration dates to be changed while an image duplication is in progress.
   If the image spans tapes, this can result in different expiration dates
   for the individual fragments.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not run "bpexpdate –recalculate" or
   "bpexpdate -backupid" while an image duplication is in progress.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET520937

Description:
   This fix eliminates a program fault that attempts to get the media server
   catalog path list from a NetBackup 5.x media server when the back-level
   server has become unresponsive.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, make certain all the back-level servers are
   functioning.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET508741

Description:
   Robot Name is now displayed correctly in NOM user interface.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET517878

Description:
   Over time, the NBJM process grew in size as jobs were run.  The system was
   configured to use security.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, disable security or restart NBJM periodically.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515457

Description:
   Eliminated a potential memory leak when retrieving a list of hosts that
   are sharing drives and list of shared drives in a master server domain.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET417455

Description:
   BPTM may report an incorrect error at the end of some restore and
   duplication jobs that is similar to the following error.
   
   "invalid job id (805)"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET424097

Description:
   Synthethic backups would fail or hang on Solaris systems with a low
   resource limit for the maximum file descriptor.  The bpsynth log would
   contain the following:
   
   ACEMsgTran::updateReactor_u: unable to register handle with the reactor
   
   On a few HP-UX systems, bpsynth may core dump if the maximum file
   descriptor resource limits are not configured properly.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, configure the system so that the maximum number of
   open files per process is at least 512.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431087 ET493991

Description:
   On UNIX platforms, the catalog moving detection that used ctime and mtime
   in an incremental catalog backup, was not always reliable.  This resulted
   in backing up catalog files that were modified since the last full backup.
   To resolve this issue, use the TIR moving detection capabilities in bpbkar
   and remove the catalog moving detection code from the catalog backup
   library.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET524813

Description:
   For Disk-to-Tape duplications, with disk images that were fragmented,
   several problems would occur, for example:
   
   - Duplication operations would get this error, "unable to read bpduplicate
   message, premature end of file encountered (errno = I/O error)", which was
   incorrect.
   
   - Duplication operations could inadvertently mix retention levels on the
   output media.  

Workaround:
   To avoid these duplication issues, touch the following file:
   /usr/openv/netbackup/NODTTSDUP.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431511

Description:
   After importing a certain type of NDMP backup, the restore would fail
   because the NUM_FILES in the catalog image header was set to zero (0).
   The cause was that bpdbm did not count the extra directory entries and
   NDMP environmental variables during importing process.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET522253

Description:
   Changes have been made the enables the use of FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER
   for Basic Disk storage units.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET525778

Description:
   Long delays, of as much as 20 minutes, can occur before the Policy
   Execution Manager starts a job.  The Policy Execution Manager submit
   function calls hosts_equal, which sets the maxJobsPerClient value that
   is sent to Job Manager, and this may cause a long delay if you have a
   lot of clients that are not accessible.  
   
   To avoid a long delay in the job submission, you must first determine
   if any client is timing out.  To do this, change the Policy Execution
   Manager debug level to 4 or higher so that the Policy Execution Manager
   debug messages are displayed when setting the maxJobPerClient field
   during job submission.  The debug statements enable you to determine
   which clients are timing out.  A timeout condition means a client no
   longer exists or it is not accessible.  After you have determined which
   client(s) is timing out, either remove the client from the policy or
   make sure it is accessible.

Etrack Incident = ET507870

Description:
   The Media IDs were not converted to upper case correctly and caused
   unexpected mismatches.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET524628 ET533634

Description:
   Exchange Transportable backups would fail with a status 69 and resulted
   in no parent jobs (nbgenjob) starting.  To correct this problem, a changed
   was made to the Policy Execution Manager to start a parent job (nbgenjob)
   if the policy fields "frozenImage" and "off host backup" are enabled and
   streaming is disabled.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET524690

Description:
   When executing update_clients to push NetBackup client software to a
   Linux x86 machine running a 2.4 kernel, it may fail with a message
   that libvxstlportST.so is busy.  That library is now being installed
   as libvxstlportST.so_new and has been added to move_libs similar
   to how some other key binaries are handled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET525328

Description:
   update_clients currently fails when using the <HW> <OS> method of
   execution.  The check that caused this error has been corrected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET527265

Description:
   If USE_VXSS is set to automatic, it was possible that a copy of the
   originator credential would be leaked when negotiating a secure
   connection.  In addition, an address buffer is no longer leaked if an
   insecure connection is received.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET523630

Description:
   On HP-UX IA64 platforms, the command bpclntcmd -ip <xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx> would

Description:
   A failed bmrsavecfg on the client will now correctly show a non-zero
   status in the job monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET429756

Description:
   A change has been made to resolve the problem of media remaining mounted
   after a synthetic backup. This would only happen if the following
   conditions applied:
   
   -  The incremental image is very small (assuming the image is on A00001)
   -  The mount of tape for writing fails the first time (for example, the
      tape A00002 was selected first and then the mount of this tape failed).
   -  The tape, given for the write (the second time after the mount failure)
      is the same as the one where the small incremental image exists
      (such as, A00001 in this case).  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET495489

Description:
   A non-multiplexed duplication of a TIR backup written to tape would fail

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507962

Description:
   bprd has a relatively large memory footprint at start up.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not save large number of VxUL logs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET521857

Description:
   The NOM server no longer consumes large amounts of memory during the
   Media Data Load.  Part of this problem was caused by NBSL returning all
   the media data to NOM when NOM reconnected instead of changing media data.
   To resolve this issue, a change was made to the media collector design so
   that NBSL sends only changed media instead of all media.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519432

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519253 ET530848

Description:
   Bpverify limits the amount of errors it logs to a maximum of 10 entries.
   In certain cases, it is useful to log all of the errors and to be able to
   manually adjust the catalog file to allow a successful restore.  A new
   option, -dml, was added to bpverify that disables the maximum amount of
   error logging.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET355520

Description:
   If a backup mounts a filesystem in bpstart_notify, starts a backup, and is
   interrupted, it will not be able to unmount the fileystem in a bpend_notify
   script.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET522347

Description:
   A 134 status code (unable to process request because the server resources
   are busy) was occasionally reported incorrectly as a 24 status code
   (socket write failed).  This issue could cause a job to fail instead of
   being  retried if resources were available.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET514845 ET530821 ET530802

Description:
   In environments where DNS is not available for fully resolving a host's
   name, NBAC would require additional configuration steps.  Therefore, in
   some cases, it is not possible to get NBAC to work.  

Workaround:
   In some cases it is possible to specify the correct fully-qualified host
   name with the bpnbat and bpnbaz command lines.  The user is prompted for
   the correct value when a problem is found in this regard.  

Additional Notes:
   A new command line has been added for bpnbat.  The bpnbat -ShowMachines
   command displays the exact names of the Machine principals that were
   added with bpnbat -AddMachine.  This indicates whether or not a Short Host
   name has been resolved.  It also enables the user to see which machines
   have thus far been added to the NBAC machine list.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET524767

Description:
   When bprestore is run with the option to wait for the completion of the
   restore job, a firewall between bprestore and bprd can shut down the
   socket.  This causes bprestore to wait for the completion status which
   never comes.  

Workaround:
   Increase the timeout on the firewall.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516108

Description:
   The VxFS named data-stream processing caused a debug log error when

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519732

Description:
   Image header files do not have the correct permissions and are world
   writeable in NetBackup 6.0.  

Workaround:
   Permission on the image files can be changed using operating system tools.
   A cron or at job could be used to automate this functionality. Other
   options could include automating this with a bpend script.  

Additional Notes:
   After installation of NetBackup 6.0 MP2, please change the permission of
   the appropriate header file to 644.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519795

Description:
   When running a backup with a large number of streams, the image header
   files may not be removed correctly from the tmp directory when the image
   is validated.  This will cause a bpverify request to read the image header
   twice - once from the parent directory and once from the tmp directory.
   It will see twice the number of expected files and fail to verify the
   image.

Additional Notes:
   This patch also addresses a similar issue with deleted image header files,
   where the image header file is not successfully deleted initially, and is
   retained until a subsequent clean-up operation is done.

Etrack Incident = ET526967

Description:
   A problem would occur when an Archive was run using NBWin.  There was a
   change in the behavior that caused data loss when only one file exists
   within the directory at the start of an archive job and new files were
   added to that directory before the archive completed.  BPCD showed that
   at the end of the job, the archive was called with 'rm -rf' that removed
   the directory and all files resulting in a data loss of the new files
   added.

Etrack Incident = ET517955

Description:
   NBSL no longer sends invalid fields in the Job and Job-attempt data.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET521892

Description:
   Running asyncronous I/O on large files can lead to delays in servicing
   requests.  The design should have handled this uncommon issue, however,
   if an error, such as a read error, was encountered with an errno of
   EAGAIN, it was treated as a generic error instead of a retry, so the
   backup failed.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, turn off asyncronous I/O.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET497175

Description:
   Added new PC-x64 client type.

Description:
   This maintenance pack contains error handling enhancements for license
   failures in vlteject, vltinject, and vltopmenu.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533242

Description:
   Changes were made to the notify scripts to only call “date” once for
   performance reasons.  In addition, changes were made to add the missing
   parent_start_notify and parent_end_notify scripts that the parent job
   (nbgenjob) uses.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET527834

Description:
   The NetBackup API that retrieves Catalog DB images was not returning
   records in the ascending order of date (backuptime).  This caused a
   problem because NOM requires the backuptime to be in the ascending order
   of date.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533333

Description:
   Hot Catalog Backups were taking too long. For a customer that has a very
   large catalog (about 44GB) that contains about 117000 file list entries
   (for image catalog directives), the backups were taking in excess of
   24 hours.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, run cold catalog backups, if the hot catalog backups
   take too long.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496741 ET537300 ET570640

Description:
   Backups with infinite retention use a specific expiration date value to
   mark them as infinite retention.  This value was changed in the
   NetBackup 6.0 release to deal with some limitations in third party
   components.  This new value created some reporting issues for backups
   that were done on or reported using media servers with the NetBackup 5.0
   or 5.1 versions.  The backups would be listed as expiring on a specific
   date, rather than showing "INFINITY" as their expiration date.  This pack
   addresses the third party date limitations and reverts the value used to
   designate infinite retention to the pre-NetBackup 6.0 value.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET520323

Description:
   Windows Hot Catalog Backups would periodically fail with a
   status 67: client backup failed to read the file list.  This only
   occurred if there were client names with multiple underscore ("_")
   characters in their NetBackup policy definitions.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, rename the clients defined in NetBackup backup
   policies to client names without underscore characters.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET414828

Description:
   This pack contains a fix to a memory leak in Policy Execution Manager when
   reading a policy or when sending mail upon job completion (for example,
   when the mailAdmin field is specified).

Workaround:
   A partial workaround for this issue is to not set the mailAdmin field in
   the policy so that no mail will be sent upon job completion.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET519705 ET519368

Description:
   After some amount of time, NetBackup EMM would become unresponsive;
   requests to EMM would timeout.  To corret this issue, the rollovermode is
   set to the filesize (which is the default NetBackup configuration).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533725

Description:
   Corrected a problem that caused NBJM to crash intermittently. The problem
   was caused by two threads working on the same object concurrently.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET422446

Description:
   Corrected the drive unload function in acstest.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533119

Description:
   A change has been made to bpdbjobs to ignore PROCESS lines that appear in
   trylogs before the Try line to insure that the correct data is interpreted.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET534333

Description:
   Multiple changes have been added to handle a number of sscanf() calls in an
   effort to gaurd against potential problems that are similar to buffer
   overflow issues.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET532668

Description:
   A TIR backup would create a corrupted tape image if the amount of TIR data
   received did not match the amount expected.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET407677 ET432231 ET493475 ET493479

Description:
   Vault components are now supported in an NBAC environment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533084

Description:
   If an inline tape copy backup job was suspended before the first
   checkpoint was taken and subsequently resumed, the job failed to start.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET530747

Description:
   BPTM would sometimes corrupt the on-disk image when recovering from a
   disk-full condition.  To encounter this problem, a backup policy that uses
   inline copy and multiplexing to a DSU/DSSU must be active.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET534512

Description:
   Exchange VSS restores were failing because of a regression that was
   introduced in an earlier release.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET535998

Description:
   "bpdbm -consistency 2", useful to check database consistency, no longer
   fails.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496660

Description:
   If a backup image was the same exact size as the defined max fragment size,
   a zero-length fragment would be listed in the image header and cause bpdm
   to hang while attempting to read the fragment.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431225

Description:
   When a disk full condition occurred while writing the fragment header, an
   error would also occur during the same period that did not get cleared and
   caused all eligible image candidates to be deleted beyond the disk storage
   unit’s low water mark.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET538466

Description:
   If a single job in a multiplexed group received a 41 status error
   (network connection timed out), then all of the jobs in the group would
   incorrectly error with this same status.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET539671

Description:
   A change has been made to set the debuglogday to currentlogday every time
   the debug log file is opened.  For robust logging, this fix creates the
   first log file for the current day.  For legacy logging, this fix prevents
   the current log file from getting reopened for every debug log entry.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, touch the next file in the sequence, then the
   robust logging starts to write to the newly created log file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET534453

Description:
   Shared standalone drives did not work if media servers were started while
   a tape was loading.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET535036

Description:
   A change has been made to resolved an nbproxy build break in addition to
   a race condition error in nbsl.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET539558

Description:
   A change was made to greatly reduce the startup time for multi-stream
   backup jobs with many streams.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET540913

Description:
   An immediate backup would cause the removal and rebuilding of jobs in the
   work list, even if the policy has not been changed, resulting in delays
   with starting the jobs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET540910

Description:
   The startup time of backup jobs would slow down when entries existed in
   the client database.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET514169

Description:
   The pack install provides customers with a new option to perform cleanup
   of previously saved patch images.  This will alleviate concerns because
   of an increased footprint and full replacement of all NetBackup client
   binaries in maintenance packs.  The pack installer will present an
   additional prompt on every install to enable or disable this feature.

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 about this vulnerability, refer to TechNote 281521 on
   the Symantec Support Web site (http://support.veritas.com/docs/281521).

Etrack Incident = ET540445

Description:
   Directory paths longer than 1024 characters can cause a core dump.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET539395

Description:
   A lock was inadvertently removed in DeviceManagerImpl::getEventChannel ()
   that caused a race condition when invoking the
   CollectorBase::getEventChannel () call.  This lock has been added back
   in to correct this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET542685

Description:
   The catalog cleanup process was not resetting the image header level
   expiration date on a multi-copy image when the first copy expired.  This
   caused the expiration date for the image to be incorrectly reported.
   This problem affects only image reporting, because the determination to
   retain data is based on the copy-level expiration date.  

Workaround:
   This pack will ensure that the catalog cleanup operation correctly sets
   the image header level expiration date.  Additionally, it will ensure that
   queries against images that were affected by the original problem will
   return the correct expiration date.  Images affected by the original
   problem may continue to show an incorrect expiration date and primary
   copy when viewed through a text editor, but will be handled correctly by
   the application.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET542894

Description:
   A change has been made that enables you to do a Media Freeze and
   Unfreeze in NOM user interface.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET413496

Description:
   Added an ACS toolkit port to the ACS toolkit 2.3.
   Added ACS support to Linux IA64 and HP-UX IA64.  

Additional Notes:
   HP-UX IA64 does not currently support ACS_TCP_SERVICE mode which also
   means there is no ACS firewall support for HP-UX IA64.  Symantec is
   working with Hewlitt Packard to acquire a new operating system library
   for this support.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET541879

Description:
   Added support for the new Quantum DLT-S drives.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET533487

Description:
   A change has been made to correct known NBSL core dump issues.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET545651

Description:
   A scan-host failover to the NDMP path caused the drive to be DOWNED.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET544406

Description:
   Backups of Windows clients using standard encryption would corrupt the
   backup image.  This caused some restores from this image and bpverify to
   fail.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET546171

Description:
   Added a configurable option to disable validation of the host name
   (chars used to form the name).

Etrack Incident = ET546839

Description:
   Back-level media servers remote scanning drives that are active on 6.0
   media servers, may cause the drive to be downed on the scan host.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET542650

Description:
   Added "-move" into the "bpdbm -consistency" check to explicitly move out
   the corrupted catalog images. "bpdbm -consistency" no longer moves
   corrupted images without the option being explicitly specified.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   Do not allow a down/disabled media server to block the entire Device
   Allocator (DA) thread pool.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET423713

Description:
   There were a few places in the code where the image query protocol version
   was set to 0, which is a pre-NetBackup 5.0 image version ID.  Some image
   queries would fail if the size of the total data being backed up was larger
   than 2TB in one job.
       
   This issue has been corrected enabling image queries on backups greater
   than 2TB work properly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET424051

Description:
   A change has been made to avert a potential vulnerability in a Java
   authentication service that runs on Veritas NetBackup servers and clients.
   This change prohibits remote attackers from executing arbitrary code on a
   targeted system.  In addition, Symantec recommends that users block the
   affected ports from external network access.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET423045

Description:
   When sharing tape drives between media servers that were running both
   NetBackup 6.0 and NetBackup 5.x, a problem existed with the NetBackup 6.0
   Scan Hosts.  If the drive being scanned was assigned to a 5.x media server,
   the 6.0 Scan Host might not stop scanning.  This resulted in SCSI
   reservation conflicts and DOWN'ed drives on the NetBackup 5.x assigned host.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not share drives between media servers running
   different versions of NetBackup.  Instead, pool your drives such that all
   of your NetBackup 5.x media servers are sharing one pool of drives and all
   of your NetBackup 6.0 media servers are sharing a pool of different drives.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET422837

Description:
   When running multi-streamed Windows Open File Backup backups to back up
   open and/or active files, some VSP cache files in the format of
   _vxfiVspCacheFile_1.VSP, for example, may have been left behind by the
   backup jobs that had already completed.  This did not occur with
   non-streamed backup jobs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET428719

Description:
   Because of a logic error in the handling of "bptm –delete_all_expired",
   the expired media was not getting deleted. This would prevent recycling
   of the media.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, the user can expire the media using bpexpdate.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET424660

Description:
   If a hot catalog backup fails and retries, an end of session function is
   executed when jobs are still active.  This could result in extra catalog
   backups to run, extra start and session scripts to run in addition to
   extra catalog cleanup operations.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET429008

Description:
   When upgrading from NetBackup 5.x to NetBackup 6.0, the
   NETBACKUP_RELATIONAL_DATABASE_FILES directive was not added to the list of
   files included in cold catalog backup.  The command, bpsyncinfo -add_paths,
   "NETBACKUP_RELATIONAL_DATABASE_FILES" is run automatically during patch
   installation to add this directive to the cold catalog backup configuration.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET421370

**Description:
   The NBDB database recovery (for Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) and Bare
   Metal Restore (BMR)) will fail if the master server has a newer catalog
   backup image than the one used in disaster recovery (DR).  On Windows
   platforms, it logged an error message in the progress log and displayed an
   error message box.  On UNIX platforms, because of a defect in the Java
   user interface, it reported an error message in the log and all of the
   restore jobs appeared in the job monitor as being successful.

Additional Notes:
   This maintenance pack enables a user to recover from an older catalog
   backup even though a newer catalog backup image exists on the master
   server.
       
   Full catalog disaster recovering from an older catalog backup is a
   “roll-back” operation that has the risk of data loss. Users should fully
   understand the implications and use it with caution.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431863

Description:
   For a Hot Catalog Backup, the relational database (NBDB/Sybase ASA) backup
   job treated a cumulative and differential incremental backup the same and
   only included the transaction log in the backup.  This can create problems
   recovering the ASA database if the differential backup media created before
   the last cumulative has expired.  These differential backups contained the
   transaction logs that were necessary to roll forward from the last full
   backup.  

Workaround:
   To resolves this issue, the cumulative incremental backup is actually a
   full backup for the ASA files.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET406999

Description:
   Transport of log messages from NBSL to NOM Server was failing and causing
   the Host Session to go down. PSP's TAO_Transport was not checking for

Etrack Incident = ET494547

Description:
   Device monitor showed the same tape mounted in multiple drives.  This tape
   in this scenario was also assigned to a NetBackup 5.x media server.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not share drives between NetBackup 6.0 media
   servers and NetBackup 5.x media servers.

Etrack Incident = ET495403 ET497074

Description:
   For media with image expiration set to infinity, nbpushdata passed an
   incorrect value for infinity to the EMM database.  This resulted in the
   media not being queried.  
       
   nbemmcmd -listmedia -mediaid <media_id> NBEMMCMD, Version:6.0(20050906)
   The function returned the following failure status:

Description:
   If any inetd entry is missing on a client and update_clients is used to
   push NetBackup client software to it, update_clients will show an error
   message in the log file.  A change was made that corrected the temporary
   file names so that inet.conf on the client will be updated properly and no
   error will be generated.

Etrack Incident = ET497761

Description:
   An extremely heavy load in the Device Allocator (DA) may cause EMM to crash.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496437

Description:
   Some vital logs were not displaying correctly.  To be more specific, the
   form that Log:DbLogMsg is being called in the emmserver source files was
   incorrect whenever it was multi-lined in the code. As a result, only part
   of the log message survived and important log information was lost.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496608

Description:
   Non-robotic tape drives that contain unlabelled media will no longer be
   automatically assigned to non-robotic media specific mount requests.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET498523

**Description:
   In a rare condition one or more backups would be corrupt when using Inline
   Tape Copy (ITC) with multiplexed backups.  This would potentially happen
   under the following conditions:
       
   - ITC was enabled with two or more active copies.
   - Multiplexing was enabled with two or more active backups.
   - The schedule configuration had the "continue if the copy fails" flag set
       for the copy that failed in the next step.
   - A copy other than the first active copy encountered an "end of media", so
       a new media was needed for this copy.  In addition, there was a problem
       of getting or setting up media (for example, writing the media header)
       such that this copy failed before continuing the backup.
   - The last buffer written to the first active copy prior to the "end of
       media" on the other copy was not the first active backup.

Workaround:
   To avoid this problem, do one of the following:
   
   - Edit the schedule configuration to disable the "continue if copy fails"
       flag.
   - Disable multiplexing.
   - Disable ITC.

   NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) deadlocks or halts when the connection to
   bpbrm breaks in the middle of a backup job.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET431510

Description:
   On initial install the Policy Execution Manager failed to start the first
   time because no IOR file existed for nbproxy.  Once an IOR file existed
   and it is not empty, then the NetBackup Service Monitor was able to restart
   the Policy Execution Manager.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, delete the IOR files listed below before starting the
   Policy Execution Manager.
       
   On UNIX:
     /usr/openv/var/nbproxy_pem.ior
     /usr/openv/var/nbproxy_pem_email.ior
       
   On Windows:
     Veritas\NetBackup\var\nbproxy_pem.ior
     Veritas\NetBackup\var\nbproxy_pem_email.ior
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET425564

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager would crash after submitting a user-directed
   or manual backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET499610

**Description:
   Synthetic backup had potential data loss issues in following cases:
   -  The last full/synthetic or full expired/deleted occurred,
        followed by one or more incrementals and a synthetic backup.
   -  The last incremental/full backup catalog was compressed before
        next incremental backup took place.
   -  The TIR records in the last incremental backup are missing for
        various reasons.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET505873

Description:
   Media servers sharing drives on versions of NetBackup older than
   NetBackup 6.0 will receive host_not_registered errors when attempting to
   determine if another media server is unavailable.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506551 ET499474 ET506690

Description:
   This entry resolves three seperate issues described in the following list:
   - Under certain conditions backups would not schedule.  This happened
       because of a problem in computing the next time a job was due.  Windows
       were not processed correctly if a backup should have run in a previous
       window if the next window opened or closed at a different time.
       
   - Advanced client VSS snapshot backup no longer causes an 805 error to
       occur.  
   
   - The scheduler always executes Full backups, even for incrementals, if the
       BMR option is on.  nbpem would use the wrong criteria for the last
       backup query made for a parent job that did not have multiple data
       streams enabled.  The result was no last full backup being found, so a
       full would be run instead of an incremental.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET496102

Description:
   As the number of VxUL log files grew, the start-up performance of bprd
   would degrade.  

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, delete the log files on a regular basis.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET506045

Description:
   nbpushdata was using emmlib_DeleteHost to remove the NDMP host when the
   following error occurred in the nbemm log.  The following is a portion of
   the log associated with the delete.  Although log-level 6 was used, it
   appeared that some log messages were missing.
   
   11/11/05 15:54:41.185 [Debug] NB 51216 nbemm 111 PID:13393 TID:1196157872
   [No context] 1 [DbConnection::Execute] SQL - retval=2007085(2007085)
   retdal=-1native=<-143> sqlerror=<[Sybase][ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server
   Anywhere]Column 'FQMachineName' not found> sqlstate=<42S22>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET507645

Description:
   In certain cases, when NetBackup Access Control is enabled, long-lived
   processes such as nbemm, nbpem, nbjm, nbrb, nbproxy, nbsl and vmd would
   leak memory.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET500006

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager VxUL message catalog was missing some messages
   causing it to crash when trying to log the new messages.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET500061

Description:
   SQL SERVER backup completes normally but the client interface Displayed
   a -1 status.  This was caused by improper progress log updates.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509509

Description:
   When spanning media, jobs occasionally appeared to be hung and the request
   was continually failing with the message, "ROBOTIC LIBRARY IS DOWN ON
   SERVER".  This would happen after an earlier failure causing the message,
   "MEDIA SERVER IS CURRENTLY NOT CONNECTED TO MASTER SERVER".  However, the
   media server properly showed the robot as up and the host as ACTIVE or
   ACTIVE-TAPE.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET509293

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) occasionally sent negative values for
   freespace and totalcapacity of a storage unit (if the values are greater
   than 2^32-1).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET508191

Description:
   vmd now retries the connection to EMM forever, instead of shutting down
   if it cannot connect to EMM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511728

Description:
   From the NOM user interface, it is not possible to start the service/deamon
   when NetBackup is on a UNIX Operating System.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET512560

Description:
   It is now be possible for SAN media servers to be used as write hosts for
   duplicate jobs.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET510335

Description:
   VxUL queries were failing on AIX platforms.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET510255

Description:
   Appending parentheses in the NOM filtering criteria is no longer an issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET510415

Description:
   New DRIVE and ROBOT Reports have now been created along with multiple
   entries for some column names.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET512866

Description:
   Removed change events for Error LogMonitoring. For example, error log
   collection functionality is removed.  In addition, the getLogMessages()
   idle method supports the error log source too; thus, NOM will call this
   method for getting error logs.  Finally, the getEventChannel()
   functionality has been removed, resulting in an AFException.
   

Additional Notes:
   Because of this fix, log monitoring of NOM 6.0 MP1 will only work with
   NetBackup 6.0 MP1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET513093

Description:
   vmscd no longer dumps core. This occurred because vmscd received an invalid
   drive type for one of the drives while polling the drive status and vmscd
   was not handling the invalid drive type properly.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET513390

Description:
   The NetBackup Notification Service (NBNos) was running in single-threaded
   mode.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET514603

Description:
   Change made to bpexpdate such that media IDs that are less than six
   characters returned from EMM were not padded with spaces.  This caused
   bpexpdate -deassignempty to mistakenly deassign media that still had
   valid images on them.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, turn off the automatic start of
   bpexpdate -deassignempty by performing one of the following items:
   
     - On a UNIX master servers, create the file,
       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpsched.d/CHECK_EXPIRED_MEDIA_INTERVAL,
       and enter a 0 (zero) on the first and only line of the file.
   
     - On a Windows master server, create the file,
       <install_path>\NetBackup\bin\bpsched.d\CHECK_EXPIRED_MEDIA_INTERVAL,
       and enter a 0 (zero) on the first and only line of the file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET514622

Description:
   An NBSL core dump happened while stopping it when it was connected to a
   client (NOM).  The core dump would occur on Solaris and AIX platforms.
   On Windows platforms, it would hang in a 'stopping' state in the Windows
   Service Manager.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515553 ET515559

Description:
   vmscd, before the fix, was a single process and it used to service
   requests from the EMM server synchronously. Because of this, the EMM server
   was not receiving the request response in a timely manner. In some cases,
   the EMM server would think that vmscd had exited and which then triggered
   certain operations that were redundant, and in some, cases harmful.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET511340

Description:
   Several issues have been fixed that related to back-level SSO
   interoperability:
   
   - Numerous re-registrations were consuming all of vmd's bandwidth on
     the EMM server.
   
   - Registration failures due to no scan host setting registration retry
     timer which would block back-level servers from releasing drives.
   
   - Back-level remote scanning of NetBackup 6.0 media servers was failing
     with ENOTSCANHOST and forcing still more re-registrations.

Workaround:
   To avoid these issues, do not share drives between NetBackup 6.0 and
   NetBackup 5.X media servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516440

Description:
   nbemm no longer core dumps on a clustered master server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET516103

Description:
   Vault can fail while logging very long strings.

Workaround:
   Disable Vault logging.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET515838

Description:
   When the parent job (nbgenjob) performed stream discovery and it received
   an exception asking for policy information through nbproxy, it would then
   perform several retries.  On the first retry attempt the parent job would
   core dump.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET429245

Description:
   On HP-UX platforms, scheduled backups with file lists that contain
   multi-byte characters failed with an error 71 (None of the files in the
   files list exist).  On the Activity Monitor, the multi-byte characters
   were unreadable in the file lists within job properties.

Workaround:
   To prevent this issue, please apply the following patches:
   
  - HP-UX 11.23
