VII. RELEASE UPDATE CONTENT
===========================
This section contains the Release Update conventions, content, and historical
content that is applicable to the release.

Conventions:
------------
The following list describes the conventions used in the subsections that
following this section.  Each item listed in the Current Release Update
subsection describes a feature, enhancement, or issue fixed with this
Release Update.

Description
    Describes a particular problem contained in this pack.

** Description **  
    Describes a problem that can lead to potential data loss. Please
    read these problem descriptions carefully.

Workaround
    Any available workarounds to a problem are also listed. Workarounds can be
    used INSTEAD of applying the patch, however, Symantec strongly recommends
    the "best practice" of being at the latest available patch level.

Additional Notes
    Any additional information regarding a problem is included.



Current Release Update
----------------------
Each item listed in this section describes a feature, enhancement, or change
that comprises this Release Update. Please read this section thoroughly to
understand the contents of this update.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1079108
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1074555
Titan cases:  220-100-495

Description:
   As per NetBackup Vault Administrator's Guide, the output of the
   Pick List for Robot should be sorted by the media ID. In the
   reported problem, the output was sorted by slot ID. This fix
   ensures that output of the Pick List for Robot adheres to what
   is documented in the Vault Administrator's Guide.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1104856
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1091014
Titan cases:  281-141-577

Description:
   With a TLH library, In-use tapes were not being flagged as
   "Not Ejected" in the Picking List Report. A change was made
   that ensures that In-use tapes are not marked as ejected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1080001
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1054732
Titan cases:  220-096-800 290-755-811

Description:
   vltopmenu needlessly consumes CPU cycles when waiting for an
   eject operation.  This happens when a robot does not have an
   empty MAP/CAP for an eject operation, and causes vltopmenu to go
   into a unending loop.  And this caused high CPU utilization.

Additional Notes:
   You could observe this problem for robots ACS or TLM or TLH, on
   which you have MAP/CAP configured to eject or inject the media
   (tape).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1078416

Description:
   When running under NBAC, a run time error occurs when any
   nonadministrator user runs the Vault user interface or
   command line interface when the "INSTALL_DIR\NetBackup\logs\vault"
   logging directory exists but is not writable for a current user.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, ensure that the 'INSTALL_DIR\NetBackup\logs\vault'
   directory does not exist.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1139463
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1138445
Titan cases:  320-068-210

Description:
   When you deleted one vault container, all of the container's
   records were deleted. This would occur whether using vltopmenu
   or the command line vltcontainers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
