*****************************************************************************

Apply this maintenance pack only on build 6.2.x.0 of Veritas Backup Reporter (tm) 6.2GA.
It should not be used on any later builds.  The CD release contains build 6.2.x.0.
If you have upgraded to Veritas Backup Reporter 6.2 GA from supported upgrade
versions, such as 4.2 FP1 or 6.0 GA, which in turn has been upgraded from a
version prior to 4.2 GA, the database upgrade fails. In this case, before
upgrading to Veritas Backup Reporter 6.2GA, you need to install the
Windows or Solaris database upgrade patch provided.

Please contact support for further information.

Maintenance Pack Installation/Un-installation Instructions for Windows
===============================================================
* To install this maintenance pack on Windows, follow these steps:

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

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

 NOTE: Any files being updated will be backed up into a zip file
       in the component's installation directory.  The file name
       will include the time of the update.  For example, if
       updating a server installed to the default location at
       3:10 PM on October 09, 2007, the following backup file is created.

       c:\Program Files\Symantec\Veritas Backup Reporter\Server\
       pre_maintPack_6.2.1747.2_20071009_1510.zip

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

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

 1. Run vbr-mp.exe.

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

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

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

 NOTE: The agent should be stopped before uninstalling.

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

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