Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). This issue affects PowerPC- and Intel-based
machines with Mac OS X 10.5.

6.5.x installation. Attempting to locally install NetBackup 6.5 on a client

============

Use a stand-alone installer for Mac OS X 10.5 if all NetBackup servers are
on Windows platforms. Note, that the installer requires administrative
privileges to run and must be run from this command line. If your environment
contains UNIX or Linux servers, you can push to a Mac OS X 10.5 client from
them. Refer again to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
