--------------------------------------
Current New Features and Enhancements:
--------------------------------------
This Release Update contains the following new features and enhancements.  For
more information about any new feature contained in this release, refer to the
NetBackup 6.5.3 Documentation Updates document contained in the following
TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/305408

+  NetBackup Exchange Granular Recovery

  NetBackup 6.5.3 includes the ability to restore Exchange mailboxes, folders,
  and messages from a storage group or database backup. This type of backup
  can serve both kinds of recovery situations: from the same backup image you
  can choose either to restore whole storage groups and databases or you can
  select individual items within mailboxes.

+  The administrator can customize how the Storage Lifecycle Manager (nbstserv)
  runs duplication jobs by creating a LIFECYCLE_PARAMETERS file and adding
  specific parameters.  (See Chapter 5 in the 6.5 Administrator's Guide, Vol. I,
  for complete setup instructions.)

  The following parameters were added since 6.5.

  DUPLICATION_SESSION_INTERVAL_MINUTES
     Indicates how frequently nbstserv starts a duplication session. During a
     duplication session, NetBackup looks for completed backups on backup
     storage destinations and decides whether or not it is time to start a new
     duplication job.

     Default: 5 minutes. Minimum: 1 minute.
     Syntax: DUPLICATION_SESSION_INTERVAL_MINUTES 5

  IMAGE_EXTENDED_RETRY_PERIOD_IN_HOURS
     All copies must be completed in a lifecycle. If necessary, NetBackup
     initially tries three times to duplicate an image to a duplication
     destination. This prevents NetBackup from retrying too frequently. If,
     after three tries, the copy is still unsuccessful, this parameter indicates
     how long NetBackup waits before an image copy is added to the next
     duplication job. (The frequency is determined by the
     DUPLICATION_SESSION_INTERVAL_MINUTES parameter.)

     The NetBackup administrator may need more than two hours (the default) to
     solve the problem. Alternatively, the administrator can temporarily
     de-activate a lifecycle using nbstlutil.

     Default: 2 hours. Minimum: 1 hour.
     Syntax: IMAGE_EXTENDED_RETRY_PERIOD_IN_HOURS 2

  The following parameters have been added to help the lifecycle run duplication
  jobs as efficiently as possible.  They are similar to existing parameters but
  indicate the size in gigabytes instead of kilobytes:

  MIN_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB
     Use this parameter (similar to MIN_KB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB, introduced
     in 6.5) to indicate the size that the batch of images should reach before
     one duplication job is run for the entire batch.  The lifecycle does not
     request a duplication job until either:

     - The aggregate size of the images in a batch reaches the minimum size as
       indicated by this parameter, or
     - The MAX_MINUTES_TIL_FORCE_SMALL_DUPLICATION_JOB time has passed. This
       parameter determines the maximum time between batch requests.

     Default:  8 gigabytes.  Syntax:  MIN_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB 8

  MAX_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB
     Use this parameter (similar to MAX_KB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB,
     introduced in 6.5) to indicate how large the batch of images is allowed to
     grow. When the size reaches the size as indicated by this parameter, no
     more images are added to the batch.  Default:  25 gigabytes.  

       Syntax:  MAX_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB 25

  Notes about MIN_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB / MAX_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB:
     - Use either the KB or the GB version of these parameters, but not both.
     - If only one MAX or one MIN parameter is specified, the other uses the
       default value for that parameter.



----------------------------------------------
NetBackup 6.5.2 New Features and Enhancements:
----------------------------------------------
The following features and enhancements were introduced in NetBackup 6.5.2. For
more information about any of the features introduced in that release, refer to
the NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation Updates document contained in the following
TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302438

+  An enhancement has been made within Enhanced Staging to compute the
  maximum number of concurrent jobs for storage groups more precisely.
  Previously, Enhanced Staging used a hard-coded number to determine the maximum
  number of concurrent jobs for a storage group.  

+  This feature implements fast object positioning for NBBSAGetMultipleObject
  API restores. Fast object positioning improves restore performance by
  enabling XBSA to position the media server to the exact location of an
  object in an image. This enables XBSA to restore the object without having
  to read through the entire image.

+  This release of NetBackup provides enhanced file-based checkpointing for the
  SQL Server. For example, changes to the NetBackup for SQL Server framework
  makes it possible to resume partially completed backups. In addition, you can
  use the SQL Server database to recover a database to a new location from a
  set that does not include a full database backup image. (In earlier versions,
  only those sets that included a full database backup image was supported.)

  And finally, improvements were made that reduce the work-loss impact to the
  SQL Server database recovery by making recoveries possible through a series
  of restores rather than a monolithic restore operation.

+  Activity Monitor displays job state details
  This Release contains changes to the column layout in the Jobs
  view of the Activity Monitor. The columns are not displayed as per the layout
  preferences that you may have specified for the earlier releases.  Two new
  columns named State Details and Priority have been added to the Jobs view.
  The State Details column is displayed by default and indicates specific
  reasons why a job is queued or is not progressing.  It also lists the backup
  resource or condition for which the job is waiting.  The Priority column is
  hidden by default and indicates the current relative priority of a job to
  obtain backup resources.

+  Reverse Host Name Lookup
  The domain name system (DNS) reverse host name lookup is used to determine
  what host and domain name are indicated by a given IP address. In previous
  releases, NetBackup required that reverse host name lookup was working to
  determine that a connection to a host came from a recognizable server.

  Some administrators cannot or do not want to configure their DNS server for
  reverse host name lookup. For these environments, NetBackup now allows the
  configuration of Reverse Host Name Lookup as a master server, media server,
  or client host property in order to allow, restrict, or prohibit reverse host
  name lookup.

+  New Job Priority defaults and overrides
  In previous releases, the job priority was set only in the policy
  configuration using the Job Priority setting. The administrator was not able
  to specify a job priority for job types other than backups. In this release,
  administrators have greater flexibility and control over the priority of a
  job. In addition, administrators can set the priority of a job from multiple
  locations in the NetBackup Administration Console, from the Backup, Archive,
  and Restore client interface, and from the command line. This capability
  improves the usability and consistency of NetBackup's job priority scheme.

  This release introduces the following additions for setting and changing the
  priority of a job:
  - The ability to configure default job priorities for different job
    types in the new Default Job Priorities master server host properties.
  - The ability to dynamically change the job priority of a queued or an
    active job that waits for resources in the Activity Monitor.
  - The ability to set the priority for a media content job in the Reports
    utility.
  - The ability to set the job priority for import, verify, and duplicate
    jobs in the Catalog utility. The ability to specify the job priority
    for restore jobs in the Backup, Archive, and Restore client interface.
  - The ability to change job priorities in the bpadm and the bp interfaces.
  - The ability to specify the job priority from the command line.

+  Data at Rest Key Management Service (KMS)
  The KMS feature is a master server-based symmetric key management service that
  manages symmetric cryptography keys for tape drives that conform to the
  T10 standard (i.e. LTO4).  

+  Multiple Copy Synthetic Backups
  The Multiple Copy Synthetic Backups feature introduces the capability to read
  remote, non-primary source images to produce a second synthetic copy in
  remote storage.

  This feature provides the following benefits:
  - This feature eliminates the bandwidth cost of copying synthetic full
    backups to another site. Instead of duplicating a local synthetic full
    backup to a remote site to produce a second copy, it is more efficient to
    produce the second copy by using data movements only at the remote site.

  - This feature provides an efficient method to establish a dual-copy disaster
    recovery scheme for NetBackup backup images.

+  AdvancedDisk storage option
  This release contains new features that enable the user to choose which machines
  can be used for restores and duplications. The following list describes the
  added capabilities that this feature offers.

  - AdvancedDisk supports storage access by more than one media server.
  - AdvancedDisk supports specification of preferred or required media
      servers for restore and duplication operations. This new capability
      replaces the FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER option.

+  SharedDisk storage option
  The SharedDisk documentation in the Veritas NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation
  Updates document packaged with this release supercedes the SharedDisk
  documentation in the NetBackup 6.5 and 6.5.1 versions of the NetBackup
  Shared Storage Guide. The Veritas NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation Updates
  document contained in the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web
  site. (http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302438)

  With this release, the SharedDisk feature enables you do the following:

  - Specify preferred or required media servers for restore and duplication
    operations. This new capability replaces the FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER
    option.  This capability provides the following benefits:
     - Offloads the workload of restores from the servers that perform the
       backups.
     - Directs the duplication traffic to specific storage servers.

  - Use either LUN masking or SCSI persistent reserve for exclusive volume
    access on the storage arrays.

+  Added SCSI persistent reservation support for SharedDisk on Redhat 4.0
  Update 5.

+  Added SCSI persistent reservation support for SharedDisk on SuSE 9 SP 3.

+  SAN Client and Fibre Transport
  The following list introduces the new features and capabilities for SAN
  client and Fibre Transport in this release.

  - You can use tape as a storage destination for the SAN Client and Fibre
    Transport feature.
  - On Solaris systems, NetBackup 6.5.2 detects the PCI bus and only allows
    ports on one bus to be used for target mode, as follows:
    - The first choice is the bus with the most 2312 target mode ports.
    - If there are no 2312 target mode ports, the bus with the most 24xx
      target mode ports is used.
    - Target mode ports on other buses are not used.
  - This release will now support the following QLogic HBAs for Fibre
    Transport media servers:
    - QLA2460 and QLA2462 (PCI-X)
    - QLE2460 and QLE2462 (PCI-e)

+  NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange
  - Backups of the Exchange 2007 passive VSS writer. With Exchange 2007,
    Microsoft introduced a new concept for Exchange that included the mirroring
    (replicating) of Exchange databases and logs to either a local server with
    replication enabled (LCR) or to a passive node of a Microsoft cluster with
    replication enabled (CCR).  The only supported backup interface to this
    replicated data is the "new" VSS passive writer that is automatically
    installed in either of these replication models. This NetBackup feature
    allows the user to select what VSS writer is backed up from the Host
    Properties for the Client. The client seamlessly backs up and catalogs as
    if it were a local VSS backup.

  - Exchange 2007 enhancements to consistency checks. Beginning with 6.5.2,
    NetBackup uses the Microsoft API to check the consistency of databases and
    transaction logs and to provide additional details.

    To take advantage of the Exchange 2007 consistency checks with the Microsoft
    API with a VSS off-host backup, the Exchange Management Console must be
    installed on the off-host client.

  - Ability to automatically redirect a VSS restore to the Exchange 2007
    recovery storage group (RSG).

  - Instant recovery for Exchange 2003 and later. This feature enables the
    recovery of storage groups and databases from a snapshot. These snapshots
    can also be staged to tape.

  - Additional information on the 6.5.2 version of the NetBackup for Exchange
    agent is available.

+  NetBackup for Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server
  - Document-level restores of MOSS 2007 & WSS 3.0.
  - Support for SharePoint 2007 document restore from a database backup.
  - Support for Microsoft SQL 2008.
  - Support for 64-bit versions of SQL Server.
  - Additional information on the 6.5.2 version of the NetBackup for SharePoint
    Portal Server agent is available.

+  NetBackup for Microsoft SQL Server
  - Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008.
  - Support for the backup and restore data contained in the SQL Server
    filestream data type. The filestream data type allows the user to manag
    file system data using SQL Server.
  - SQL Server file-based checkpoint/restart.

+  NetBackup for Oracle (Support for Oracle 11g)
  NetBackup 6.5.2 supports backups and restores of Oracle 11g. This includes
  support for Oracle advanced data compression and Oracle data pump.

  For instructions on linking the Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) with NetBackup,
  refer to the appropriate procedure for your platform and Oracle 9i or later
  or for Oracle 10g and later.

  The information in the Appendix "Oracle 9i and 10g Real Application Clusters"
  also applies to Oracle 11g.

+  Storage Lifecycle Policy destination configuration changes
  This release introduces several configuration changes for storage lifecycle
  policy storage destinations. The changes appear in the Storage Destination
  dialog box and are as follows:

  - The new Snapshot destination type is available when the Snapshot Client
    option is installed.
  - The Alternate read server selection is available only for duplication
    destinations.
  - The Preserve multiplexing option is available for multiplexed source images.

+  Database Administration Tool for NetBackup Relational Databases
  The NetBackup relational database and Bare Metal Restore database in
  NetBackup 6.0 and 6.5 used Sybase Adaptive Server Anywhere (ASA). (Also
  known as SQL Anywhere.) NetBackup 6.0 and 6.5 included command line utilities
  to administer the databases. NetBackup 6.5.2 contains a tool that makes it
  easier for administrators to perform database administration tasks.

  The Database Administration tool for NetBackup databases is a stand-alone,
  interactive, menu-driven tool available on both UNIX and Windows:
  -  On UNIX, the tool has a menu-user interface, similar to the bpadm tool.
  -  On Windows, the tool has a graphical user interface. The tool is based on
     existing command lines.

  The tool, on both UNIX and Windows, provides a way for the administrator to
  perform many actions.  For a list of these actions and more information about
  this new feature, refer again to the NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation Updates
  document.

+  How to configure and use NetBackup for VMware
  NetBackup for VMware provides backup and restore of the VMware virtual
  machines that run on VMware ESX servers. NetBackup for VMware takes advantage
  of VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) technology. The backup process is
  off-loaded from the ESX server to a separate host that is called the VMware
  backup proxy server.

  The NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation Updates document contains a chapter that
  describes this feature in detail as well as how to configure NetBackup for
  WMware.

+  Snapshot client features
  Snapshot features contained in this release of NetBackup are:
  - Storage lifecycle policies with Instant Recovery snapshots
    Instant Recovery snapshot-based backups to the types of images that
    NetBackup can manage with lifecycle policies. The Instant Recovery feature
    makes snapshots available for quick data recovery from disk. Lifecycle
    policies support a lifecycle storage plan for the storage unit copies made
    during an Instant Recovery backup.

  - NetBackup and Continuous Data Protection (CDP)
    CDP dramatically changes the data protection focus by continuously
    safeguarding all changes to important data. CDP increases the available
    recovery point granularity.

  - New disk array snapshot methods in 6.5.2
    The array snapshot methods contained in this release take advantage of
    high-speed mirroring and other snapshot capabilities that are provided by
    the arrays. The following list shows the new snapshot methods introduced in
    this release.  
      - Hitachi_CopyOnWrite
      - Hitachi_ShadowImage
      - IBM_DiskStorage_FlashCopy
      - IBM_StorageManager_FlashCopy

  - VMware raw device mode (RDM)
    VMware's raw device mapping mode (RDM) allows a VMware virtual machine to
    directly access raw physical disks. With raw device mapping, a VMware
    virtual machine can use large storage devices such as disk arrays. The
    arrays can be locally attached to the ESX server or configured on a Fibre
    Channel SAN.

+  This release adds coexistence support for clients that utilize EMC Powerpath
  devices.  Bare Metal Restore will not re-create or restore volumes or
  filesystems that reside on EMC Powerpath devices. The following is a summary
  of expected behaviour when backing up and restoring EMC Powerpath clients
  with Bare Metal Restore:

  -  During backup, the configuration that is imported will have all
     references to EMC Powerpath pseudo-device names removed and replaced
     with the first active physical disk in the EMC Powerpath configuration.
     This is applicable for all UNIX and Linux platforms. For Windows platforms,
     pseudo device naming convention matches to native device naming convention
     and only pseudo device entry is maintained in the configuration.

  -  The physical disk(s) chosen to represent the EMC Powerpath configuration
     will be "Restricted" from restoration.

  -  The physical disk(s) chosen to represent the EMC Powerpath configuration
     will not be allowed to be unrestricted during Dissimilar Disk Restore
    (DDR) and Dissimilar System Restore (DSR) mapping operations.

  -  The filesystems, volumes and volume groups (if applicable) originally
     resident on EMC Powerpath devices can be mapped to non-EMC Powerpath
     devices for restoration.

  -  Resources (disk groups and volume groups) originally configured on
     EMC Powerpath devices will not automatically be imported and may not be
     available in the post-restore environment. Depending on the operating
     system, volume manager and Host Bus Adapter (HBA) in use will determine
     whether the resource is automatically available after restoration has
     completed.  If the resource is not available, it will need to be either
     imported by hand or made available via the external procedure feature of
     BMR if automation is desired.

  - For Windows platforms, Symantec's volume manager shipped with Storage
    Foundation for Windows (SFW) is not supported with the EMC Powerpath
    configured disks in this release and is planned for a future release.

+  The NBSU utility has been upgraded to include the following new features
  and capabilities.  In addition, this release contains the latest version
  which is 1.2.6.
  - NBSU now detects DNS alias hostnames.
  - Hostname checks for the etc/hosts, etc/lmhosts, NIS and NISplus will now
    detect and use the associated IP addresses.
  - Enhancements were made to the nbsu.exe Windows file-property values with
    additional Symantec-specific information.

+  The release contains the following changes and enhancements to the High
  Availability Guide.
  - Configuring the Key Management Service (KMS) for monitoring
  - Clustered media servers on Windows 2008
  - Changes to the bpclusterutil command for UNIX and Windows platforms

+  Many of the preceding features contained additional commands as well as
  new options to existing commands.  These new options and commands have been
  documented in the Commands chapter of the NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation
  Updates document.

+  The following procedure should have been included in the Veritas NetBackup
  Shared Storage Guide that was released with the NetBackup 6.5 GA.

  BasicDisk storage units and Windows UNC

  Beginning with the NetBackup 6.5 release, if you use Windows Universal Naming
  Convention (UNC) pathnames to specify BasicDisk storage, you must configure
  the following NetBackup services on the NetBackup media server to use the
  same credentials:
  - The NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service
  - The NetBackup Client Service

  If the services do not use the same credentials, NetBackup marks BasicDisk
  storage units that have UNC pathnames as DOWN.

  To configure NetBackup services credentials
  1. In Windows, open Services in the Microsoft Management Console.
  2. Select one of the following NetBackup services and open its Properties:
     - The NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service
     - The NetBackup Client Service
  3. On the General tab, select Stop to stop the service.
  4. On the Log On tab, select This Account and then enter valid credentials.
     The credentials must allow read and write access to the storage.
  5. On the General tab, select Start to start the service.
  6. Repeat for the other service.

+  (ET1267896) When performing backups using the new Pure Deduplication
  Option (PDDO) feature, Symantec suggests that users monitor their shared
  memory usage as the number of jobs increases.  The job-size throttling has
  been turned off in NetBackup 6.5.2 to allow more PDDO backups to run
  concurrently.  Please consult your NetBackup Performance Tuning Guide for
  additional information on NetBackup tuning parameters affecting shared memory
  usage.

+  Enabling Multiple Robotic Paths for Highly Available Tape Libraries
 
  This release contains a new feature that allows a user to enable multiple
  robotic paths to achieve high availability for NetBackup TLD type tape
  libraries. This feature enables the use of multiple paths from a single media
  server to the tape robot. For more information about this feature, refer to
  the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303942

+  A new option has been added to the Disk Group Mapping Utility dialog of the
  BMR mapping wizard.

  For AIX and HP-UX, the option is called Simplify volume group.
  For VxVM, the option is called Simplify disk group.
  For Solaris Volume Manager, the option is called Simplify disk set.

  This option is being added to the table of selection items for the dialog.
  The description of this option is as follows:

  Select this option to force the creation of the volume group (AIX and HP-UX),
  disk group (VxVM), or disk set (Solaris Volume Manager) and set the number of
  copies and stripes in all the mapped volumes to 1. Use this option to map all
  volumes as concatenated volumes onto a disk.

  This option is only available if you select the Automatically map volumes in
  this volume group option on this page.


----------------------------------------------
NetBackup 6.5.1 New Features and Enhancements:
----------------------------------------------
The following features and enhancements were introduced in NetBackup 6.5.1.

+  For Solaris systems, you can now use SCSI persistent reservations for
  exclusive LUN access control for disk arrays used with the SharedDisk
  feature.  For more information, see the following Symantec TechNote:
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/293321

+  Added support for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and Windows
  SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0

  -  NetBackup 6.5.1 supports Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007
     and Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0.
     -  MOSS 2007 standalone, federated, 32-bit and 64-bit with SQL 2005 or
        SQL Express. Shared Services configuration protection is supported
        within the same farm.
     -  WSS 3.0 standalone, federated, 32-bit and 64-bit with SQL 2005 or
        SQL Express.

  -  There are additional requirements if you want to perform document-level
     restores with SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and a 64-bit OS. You need to
     upgrade to Windows 2003 R2 and install the Software Development Kit (SDK)
     for SUA available from Microsoft. SUA is the Subsystem for UNIX-based
     Applications.

  -  Document-level restores of MOSS 2007 & WSS 3.0 are not supported in
     NetBackup 6.5.1. This functionality will be available in a future release.

  For further information on how to use NetBackup with MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0,
  refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292586

+  The following enhancements made to the NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange:

  -  Exchange 2007 mailbox-level backups and restores

     This release supports mailbox-level backups of Exchange 2007.  This
     includes the same functionality as in previous versions of NetBackup for
     Exchange, except an additional Microsoft package is required.

     Download and install the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and
     Collaboration Data Objects package. Version 6.05.7888 or higher is
     required.  You can find this package at the following Web site:
        http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/

     To run mailbox backups and restores, you must create a user account for
     the NetBackup Client Service. The process is different for Exchange 2007
     than for earlier versions of Exchange. Refer to the TechNote, Continued
     support for Microsoft Exchange 2007 on the Symantec Support Web site.
        http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292587
 
  -  Exchange 2007 VSS support
     This release update supports Snapshot Client backups of Exchange 2007.
     This includes off-host backups and the selection of the VSS provider, as
     with Exchange 2003 in previous versions of NetBackup. To successfully
     perform backups using the VSS method, you must apply two hotfixes.

     -  For Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2007 You must apply the following
        SFW 5.0 hotfix on all systems where a Snapshot Client backup occurs.
        The hotfix can be obtained by calling Symantec Support. This hotfix
        is also included in the SFW/SFW-HA 5.0 MP1 release. See the following
        TechNote for more information.
           http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/287298

     -  If you have Exchange 2007 and VxVM 5.0 and use the VSS off-host method,
        you must also apply the following hotfix.
           http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292544

  -  With Exchange 2007, NetBackup 6.5.1 supports the redirection of a VSS
     backup image to a recovery storage group (RSG) or another alternate
     storage group.  As of NetBackup 6.5.1, you can only redirect the restore
     of an entire storage group (including the RSG) if it contains only one
     database.

     For more information on this type of restore, see the TechNote Continued
     support for Microsoft Exchange 2007.
        http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292587

  -  This release allows for off-host snapshot backups of uncommitted logs only.

  -  Support for Exchange 2007 in Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) environments.
     A patch is required. See the following TechNote for more information:
        http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/288625.htm

  -  In a future release the Exchange agent will support instant recovery for
     Exchange 2003 and later. This feature enables the recovery of storage
     groups and databases from a snapshot. These snapshots can also be staged
     to tape.

+  The release includes a new NetBackup for VMware that provides backup and
  restore of VMware virtual machines that run on VMware ESX servers. NetBackup
  for VMware uses the VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) framework.

  NetBackup for VMware can back up and restore individual files or the full
  virtual machine. Also supports individual file restore from full Windows
  virtual machine backups, by means of FlashBackup-Windows.

  For additional information about this feature, see the following TechNote
  on the Symantec Support Web site.
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/293350

+  The following enhancement was made to NetBackup Windows FlashBackup.

  NetBackup Windows FlashBackup uses VxMS for backup (mapping) and restore of
  NTFS files.  A change was made to provide a new VxMS build that supports the
  direct retrieval of security descriptors from the NTFS Security Descriptor
  database in VxMS.

+  This release adds coexistence support for clients that are utilize
  EMC Powerpath devices.  Bare Metal Restore will not re-create or restore
  volumes or file systems that reside on EMC Powerpath devices. The following
  is a summary of expected behavior when backing up and restoring
  EMC Powerpath clients with Bare Metal Restore:

  -  During backup, the configuration that is imported will have all
     references to EMC Powerpath pseudo-device names removed and replaced
     with the first active physical disk in the EMC Powerpath configuration.

  -  The physical disk(s) chosen to represent the EMC Powerpath configuration
     will be "Restricted" from restoration.

  -  The physical disk(s) chosen to represent the EMC Powerpath configuration
     will not be allowed to be unrestricted during Dissimilar System
     Restore (DSR) mapping operations.

  -  The filesystems, volumes and volume groups (if applicable) originally
     resident on EMC Powerpath devices can be mapped to non-EMC Powerpath
     devices for restoration.

  -  Resources (disk groups and volume groups) originally configured on
     EMC Powerpath devices will not automatically be imported and may not be
     available in the post-restore environment. Depending on the operating
     system and volume manager in use will determine whether the resource is
     automatically available after restoration has completed.  If the resource
     is not available, it will need to be either imported by hand or made
     available via the external procedure feature of BMR if automation is
     desired.

  This enhancement has been provided on all UNIX and Linux platforms which
  NetBackup currently supports.  Support for EMC Powerpath on Windows platforms
  is planned for a future release.

+  Additional error codes have been created for a NetBackup SharedDisk. For
  detailed information about these errors codes, refer to the following
  TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/288177

+  Symantec will no longer support TSH robots in the next major release of
  NetBackup.




==================
II.  KNOWN ISSUES
==================  
This section contains a list of known issues with this Release Update. These
issues will likely be fixed in future Release Updates for this version of
NetBackup. The issues below have been separated in to general groups to make
it easier for you to find the area that interests you most.

- Platform-specific issues
- Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues
- NetBackup Access Control issues
- NetBackup Database Agent issues
- Storage-related issues
- NetBackup user interface issues
- General NetBackup issues
- General Documentation issues



Platform-specific issues:
-------------------------
+  Windows 2008 can only be administered from a remote system, the user
  interface will not allow local administration.  

+  (ET1258372) For Solaris 10 clients using the NAS_Snapshot snapshot method,
  if backup target filesystems are not mounted explicitly as NFS version 3, the
  snapshot directory on the filer volume will not be accessible through NFS as
  required to support snapshot restore. This may result in failed backups, or
  backups that appear to succeed, but are immediately expired during routine
  snapshot image validation. For Solaris 10 clients, filesystem mount commands
  should contain the following option:
       -o vers=3
  For example:
       mount -F nfs -o vers=3 file1:/vol/vol2 /mnt

+  Cannot install NetBackup 6.5.2 to a Macintosh computer running
  Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).  This issue affects PowerPC- and Intel-based
  machines with Mac OS X 10.5.

  NetBackup 6.5.2 is a patch release that is meant to upgrade an existing
  6.5.x installation. Attempting to locally install NetBackup 6.5 on a client
  running Mac OS X 10.5 will fail.  For more information about this issue and
  how to work-around it, refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec
  Support Web site.
      http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302495

+  (ET1150283) The HP-UX 11.11 patch PHSS_33037 introduced a defect that can
  cause applications to fail at start time. (Please see the HP patch
  description for PHSS_33037). This defect can cause the Oracle and DB2
  NetBackup agents to fail while executing calls to dlopen.

  Users who are affected by this defect should back out of the patch, or
  install the later patch PHSS_35379.

+  (ET1218121) An issue exists that causes backups of Distributed File
  System Replication (DFSR) data on Windows 2003 R2 systems using
  NetBackup 6.5 or 6.5.x to fail even though a NetBackup Status Code 0
  (successful) is received.  A documented workaround exists in
  TechNote 290900 on the Symantec Support Web site. If you have already
  implemented this workaround, please continue to monitor the TechNote for
  any changes that may be added.

  See, http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/290900


Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues:
------------------------------------------
+  The Veritas Private Branch Exchange (PBX) software is installed along with
  Veritas NetBackup 6.5.x  Depending on how NetBackup is installed, PBX may log
  messages by default to the UNIX system logs  /var/adm/messages or
  /var/adm/syslog, or to the Windows Event Log.  This can cause additional
  system logging that the system administrator may not desire.  The messages
  written to the system logs are the same as those written to the PBX logs
  (/opt/VRTSpbx/log on UNIX and <install_path>\VxPBX\log on Windows).

  To disable PBX logging to the system or event logs after NetBackup has been
  installed, enter the following commands:

  UNIX:
       cd /opt/VRTSicsco/bin
       ./vxlogcfg -a -p 50936 -o 103 -s LogToOslog=false

  Windows:
       cd <install_path>\VERITAS\VRTSicsco
       vxlogcfg -a -p 50936 -o 103 -s LogToOslog=false

  It should not be necessary to restart PBX for this setting to take effect.
  Any future PBX log information should no longer appear in the system logs.

  For more information about this issue or information on how to disable the
  option, refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

  http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/280746

+  (ET1257102) Before you attempt to install a NetBackup Master Server on a
  Tru64 system the following things must be present on the Tru64 system:
     1. Install the latest Internationalization (I18N) patch
     2. Shared Memory Size greater than 60MB.

  If these two criteria are not met then basic Backups fail with a status 230
  and status 89 error, respectively.

+  (ET1269244) When attempting an upgrade, if Fibre Transport clients or servers
  are discovered in the database, make sure that the appropriate services are
  running to avoid potential issues that could cause the upgrade to fail.  Use
  nbftconfig -ls and nbftconfig -lc to determine if Fibre Transport clients or
  servers are present.

+  On a media server (stand-alone or clustered), if the media server system
  is shutdown or a failover occurs while the media server is involved in a
  restore operation, further restore operations involving this media server
  will not function. For more information about this issue, refer to the
  following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
      http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303970

+  (ET1116304) To view log messages generated by PBX exchange, use the vxlogview
  utility installed by the VRTSicsco package only. Typically, the VRTSicsco
  package is installed at "/opt/VRTSicsco" on UNIX systems and
  "<CommonProgramFiles>\VERITAS\VRTSicsco" on Windows systems.  It is not
  recommended to use the vxlogview utility that is installed by any other
  package because it may give errors due to a version/architecture mismatch.

+  (ET1380306) The initial PBX install or version upgrade,
  "NetBackup 6.5 ICS 1.4.37.9 for HP", failed to install or upgrade during a
  NetBackup install.  It would fail with the following error.

     The platform type of installics (ICS-HPUX-11.00 CS-HPUX-11.23) does not
     match the platform type of this machine (ICS-HPUX-11.00).

  To resolve this issue, a fix was made to a new PBX install or version upgrade,
  titled, "NetBackup 6.5 ICS 1.4.37.9a for HP".  Note the 'a' in the image name.
  The new image is easily denoted by the existence of the ./platform.txt.old file.

+  (ET1299390) When the IP resource for a VCS cluster (or any other cluster
  technology) fails (or goes down unexpectedly), the NetBackup agent is incapable
  of determining the state of the master server. This leads the VCS server to
  believe that all NetBackup services are down when in reality they are up.

  To avoid this issue, perform the following workaround.
  1) Use the cluster technology specific command to offline the NetBackup resource
     group.
  2) Ensure that the NetBackup services are down on all of the nodes in the cluster.
     You can use the bp.kill_all command to shutdown NetBackup on all of the
     inactive nodes.
  3) Bring the NetBackup cluster resource group back online.



NetBackup Access Control issues:
--------------------------------
+  (ET1249781) Recovering NetBackup access management components

   If you have configured NetBackup Access Control (NBAC), your authentication
   and authorization configuration information is automatically backed up by
   the online, hot catalog backup.

   Both the Operate and Configure permission sets are required on the catalog
   object in order to successfully backup and recover NBAC authentication and
   authorization data.

   Perform the following procedure to recover the NetBackup catalog from an
   online catalog backup when NetBackup Access Control is configured:
   1. Ensure that NetBackup Access Management Control is installed, but
      disabled prior to running the actual catalog recovery wizard or bprecover
      command. You must have root privileges to execute the recovery.
   2. Shut down the authentication and authorization services/daemons.
   3. Recover the NetBackup catalog from the online catalog backup using the
      recovery wizard or bprecover command. Authentication and authorization
      data will not be copied back to the hosts from which it was backed up;
      instead, it will be copied to a staging area for use in step 4.
   4. Run "bprecover -r -vxss -p <policy name>, supplying the name of the
      online catalog backup policy. This will recover authentication and
      authorization data from the staging area to the hosts from which it was
      backed up.
   5. Start up the authentication and authorization services/daemons.
   6. Configure NetBackup to use NetBackup Access Management Control, by
      setting up the proper Access Control host properties for master
      server(s), media server(s), and client(s).
   7. Restart NetBackup.

+  (ET1137932) To do NetBackup restores as a non-administrative user under NBAC
  using the Windows Backup, Archive, and Restore client console or the Windows
  Administration Console, the permissions on the following directories need to
  be set to "Full Control" for each user of the user interfaces.  
     C:\ProgramFiles\Veritas\NetBackup\logs\nbwin
     C:\ProgramFiles\Veritas\NetBackup\logs\nbconsole

+  (ET1030850 ET1145680)  An issue exists for AIX platforms running a mixed
  NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) environment where NBAC is installed and
  enabled on some but not all hosts.  In this type of environment, USE_VXSS is
  set to AUTOMATIC.  There is an AIX compiler issue that causes a core dump to
  occur in a library routine.  You may observe core dumps in NetBackup daemon
  processes due to this issue.  A side effect to this issue may be that you are
  not able to log into the NetBackup-Java Administration Console after enabling
  NBAC.

+  (ET1274335) Applicability: Cluster NetBackup with NBAC (Clustered VxAT)

  A Hot Catalog backup of clustered NetBackup with NBAC (Clustered VxAT) does
  not protect VxAT data stores correctly. Attempting to recovery VxSS data
  using the command, bprecover -r -vxss -p <PolicyName> fails to recover the
  VxSS environment.

+  Configuring NOM and VxAT on the same cluster is not supported on VCS Windows.



NetBackup Database Agent issues:
--------------------------------
+  The following items pertain to the new Exchange Granular Recovery feature
  for this release.

  - A Microsoft hot fix is required for "Client for NFS" for windows 2003. You
    can locate and request this hot fix for either x86 or x64 platforms at:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947186

  - A status 1 error may occur for an Exchange Granular-enabled backup job if
    the granular processing operations failed to complete successfully. The
    job details under the Activity Monitor or error log should indicate if this
    failure is what caused the status 1.
      - Look at the bpbkar debug log for more information
      - A legacy (non VSS) backup will still truncate transaction logs if the
        job ended with a status 1 because of a granular processing operation
        failure. In this situation, the backup image is suitable for database
        recovery.

  - The Qlogic San Surfer software may need to be disabled or un-installed
    because it may conflict with the port mapped for Windows "client for NFS".

  - The following table shows the supported NetBackup media servers and which
    of these platforms support NBFS:
   
      Supported Media Server                Support for NBFS
      AIX 5L...............................       YES
      HP-UX HP 9000 PA-RISC................       YES
      HP-UX HP Integrity (IA-64)...........       YES
      Novell Open Enterprise Server Linux..       NO
      RedFlag Linux Data Center............       NO
      RedHat Enterprise Linux..............       YES
      Solaris Sparc........................       YES
      Solaris x86/x64......................       NO
      SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.........       YES
      Tru64................................       NO
      Windows 2000.........................       NO
      Windows 2003 x86/x64.................       YES
      Windows 2008.........................       NO

  - The following table shows the supported Disk Storage units for Exchange
    granular-enabled backup policies and which of these platforms support
    granular-browse:
   
      Supported Media Server      Granular-browse Support
      BasicDisk..................     YES
      AdvanceDisk................     YES
      NearStore..................     NO
      OpenStorage................     NO
      PureDisk...................     YES
      ShareDisk..................     NO
      SnapVault..................     NO

+  If pre-NetBackup 6.5.3 version is being used to backup granular backups for
  SharePoint and its media servers are upgraded to 6.5.3, then the SharePoint
  clients will also need to be upgraded to 6.5.3.

+  The following list of issues applies to Microsoft Exchange.
  -  Exchange 2007 Recovery Storage Group
     In NetBackup 6.5.1, the procedure to restore to the Exchange 2007 recovery
     storage group (RSG) is to specify the RSG name as the redirected
     destination. In a future release, redirection to the RSG will be automated
     and will not have to specify a name.

  -  Launching an off-host snapshot backup from the NetBackup Client or with
     bpbackup

     If you attempt to initiate an Exchange off-host alternate client backup
     from the NetBackup Client GUI or with the bpbackup command, the backup
     fails. Instead, use the NetBackup Administration Console to initiate a
     manual backup for that Exchange policy. See the "Testing configuration
     settings" section in the NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Administrator's
     Guide for instructions on how to perform a manual backup.

  -  When an Exchange backup is launched from the NetBackup Client interface
     and uses the Snapshot Client offhost backup capability, the progress log
     window does not display the usual progress messages evident when a
     scheduled backup is executed. The backup operation is not impacted by this
     lack of progress logging. If detailed progress is desired, use the
     NetBackup Administration Console to launch a manual backup operation on an
     Exchange policy. See the "Testing configuration settings" section in the
     NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Administrator's Guide for instructions on
     how to perform a manual backup operation.



Storage-related issues:
-----------------------
+  A button labeled New has been added to the Add Disk Array Host dialog box,
  as well as a new dialog box titled, New Array Type. When you click the
  New button the New Array Type dialog box appears. Included on this dialog
  box is a Help button. The online help for this dialog and button will be
  available at the next major release.

+  The NetBackup SharedDisk option does not support Windows 2008 for media
  servers.

+  (ET1444319) An issue exists in this Release Update where storage lifecycle
  policy (SLP) images that are no longer in the catalog still appear in the
  EMM image table list. These images are empty placeholder images and are
  created when multi-streamed backups occur. The nbstserv process detects
  these images in the EMM table list, processes them, and reports that it has
  removed them, when in fact they still appear in the image table list as not
  being processed by SLP.

+  The following list of issues applies to AdvancedDisk.
  -  Windows Common Internet File System (CIFS) is not supported.
  -  For NFS, you must use manual mount points.
  -  Symantec recommends that you do not span backup images across volumes in
     an AdvancedDisk disk pool. File system full conditions cannot be detected
     adequately. Therefore, each disk pool should be comprised of only one
     volume.

+  (ET1240562) NetBackup SharedDisk and Windows media servers

  If you use both NetBackup 6.5.2 and NetBackup 6.5 or 6.5.1 media servers
  (Windows) for SharedDisk, you must format LUNs using a 6.5 or 6.5.1 media
  server.  To avoid any LUN formatting issues, Symantec recommends that you
  upgrade all of the Windows media servers you use for SharedDisk to
  NetBackup 6.5.2.

+  (ET1128929)  Suppose a copy of an image is beyond its try-to-keep date, and
  is a candidate for removal from disk.  For instance, this copy of the image
  is counted as a part of the Potential Free Space value.  If a user uses the
  bpexpdate command to manually expire this copy of the image from disk, the
  Potential Free Space value will not be decremented to reflect the action
  taken until the whole Potential Free Space value is recalculated.  Until the
  value is recalculated, the user and NetBackup will think that there is more
  available space on the disk than there actually is.

  The Potential Free Space value is recalculated:  
     a) When the High Water Mark (HWM) condition forces a draining of the disk
        down to Low Water Mark (LWM).
     b) When an image is fully duplicated, thus being "Lifecycle complete".  

  The "Available space" is Free Space plus Potential Free Space. The file
  system increments the Free Space, but NetBackup does not decrement the
  Potential Free Space. Thus, the size of the image that was expired is
  counted twice as both Free Space and Potential Free Space.  This is the
  reason why it will look to the user and NetBackup like the disk has more
  space than there actually is.  In addition, this may cause NetBackup to
  assign jobs to the disk that have a larger total estimated size than is
  actually available.

+  Dissimilar Disk Restore of a Solaris client fails if the client uses SVM
  metadevices (volumes) created using slice 2 of Solaris Disks. For more
  information on this issue, refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec
  Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303027

+  (ET1230073) A storage lifecycle policy can contain backup and duplication
  storage destinations. A duplication destination can be configured to have one
  of two retention types: Fixed or Capacity managed.

  When Capacity managed is selected, a Desired cache period is also configured.
  NetBackup tries to retain the image on the destination for the Desired cache
  period. Only if space is needed for new images are the capacity-managed copies
  to be expired.  However, testing has shown that for duplication destinations
  using the Capacity managed retention type, the Desired cache period is being
  overlooked.

  The overlooked desired cache period may allow images to become eligible for
  expiration as soon as all copies of the image have been created. The next time
  the disk reaches the high water mark, these copies may be deleted, regardless
  of the Desired cache period setting.

+  (ET1317594) To add clarity, the "Load balance" label in the Storage Unit
  Group dialog, has been changed to read, Media server load balancing.

+  (ET1128929) Potential free space is the amount of space on a disk staging
  storage unit (DSSU) or on a lifecycle policy destination that NetBackup can
  free if extra space on the volume is needed. (Use the nbdevquery command to
  display the potential_free_space and the free_space value.) The potential free
  space value represents the total size of the image copies that are eligible
  for expiration.

  To create free space, an administrator can run the bpexpdate command to
  manually expire eligible image copies on the volume. This changes the potential
  free space into available free space.

  If nbdevquery is run after bpexpdate is used, the potential free space value
  should be reduced and the free space value should be increased. However, this
  is not the case. The nbdevquery command does not display the correct potential
  free space value until one of the following updating events occurs:

  -  In the case of DSSUs: When the high water mark or a disk-full condition is
     reached on the storage unit. The automatic expiration of eligible copies of
     staged images occurs and potential_free_space for that disk is recalculated.

  -  For disk destinations within lifecycle policies: When a duplication job
     that writes to the disk completes, the potential_free_space value for that
     disk is recalculated.

+  (ET1239766) Some devices that have single-instance store (SIS) capabilities
  can be used as storage destinations in a storage lifecycle policy. (For
  example, PureDisk.)

  In this release, the Fixed and Capacity Managed retention types are available
  for selection for SIS devices used as duplication destinations. However, the
  Capacity Managed retention type actually behaves as a Fixed retention period
  for these devices.

  The log reflects this change in retention type behavior. In future releases,
  the Capacity Managed retention type will be available for SIS devices.



NetBackup user interface issues
(NetBackup Administration Console, command line interface, bp or bpadm, etc.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+  The NetBackup Administration Console for Windows is not supported on
  Windows 2008 for the AMD64 platform. If a user attempts to launch the
  NetBackup Administration Console, it will cause the following error message.

    The NetBackup Administration Console cannot be started. The Windows-based
    NetBackup Administration Console is not supported on this platform.

+  (ET1231347) As a result of a security fix to handle characters like "<",
  ">", and ";", a user could issue UNIX commands without being a root user.
  Because the NetBackup-Java Administration Console uses the command line
  interface (CLI) to create policies, these characters cannot be allowed as
  text entries in policies. The security fix cannot be removed. Therefore,
  to work around this issue, the user should use a Java Administration
  Console that is running on a Windows workstation to create policies for
  MSEO. This issue will be fixed in a future release of NetBackup 6.5.

+  (ET1268670) A user cannot change the NDMP hosts in the Device Configuration
  wizard using the NetBackup-Java Administration Console.

  If you are on the NetBackup-Java Administration Console, you can work around
  this issue by performing the following steps.
    1.  Expand the Credentials within the left pane of the NetBackup-Java
        Administration Console.
    2.  Select NDMP Hosts.
    3.  Select the NDMP host that you want to change.
    4.  Right click the NDMP host and select "Change" from the drop-down menu.
        The Change NDMP Host window appears.

  If you want to use the command-line, you can work around this issue by
  performing the following command.
     /volmgr/bin  tpconfig -update -default_user_id <user ID>

+  (ET1367769) When using the nbdevconfig command from the command line
  interface it is important to remember to separate the server names with
  white space and not any other character such as a comma. The NetBackup
  Commands document will be updated to include an additional sentence and
  possibly an example that demonstrates how this command is designed to be
  used.  

+  (ET1395328)  When using the bp or bpadm interface on HP-UX 11.23 or 11.31
  systems on Integrity (IA-64) architecture, a DATE ERROR will be returned
  during attempts to change dates. For more information about this issue,
  refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/308809



General NetBackup issues:
-------------------------
+  ** (ET1391268)  A data loss issue exists with calendar-based schedules that
  have a configured window that spans midnight and then goes active after
  midnight. The issue can cause a client backup, that is suppose to run in the
  next open window, to be skipped without any notification, thus resulting in a
  data-loss situation. This issue can occur in a NetBackup server or Enterprise
  server.

  For information on how to determine if you may be impacted by this issue and
  for a work-around, refer to the following TechAlert on the Symantec Support
  Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/311581

+  (ET1379837) An issue exists in this release update that can cause any
  supported version of HP-UX (PA-RISC) to encounter memory consumption issues
  with NetBackup processes. The degree of consumption will vary depending on a
  user's usage pattern. In addition, it is likely that the NBEMM process will
  be the first process to stop with a core dump. For more information about
  this issue, refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

  http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/313880

+  (ET1436810) Calendar incremental backups may not run on the same day as a calendar
  full backup as been scheduled.

+  (ET1199036 and ET1181074) Users may get a core dump of dbeng9 after
  performing a Full Catalog Backup Recovery. This is not a Symantec NetBackup
  issue. This core dump can be deleted and ignored. Testing showed that the
  catalog recovery completed successfully and that bprecover handled the core
  dump issue appropriately.

+  (ET1268670) In NetBackup 6.5.2, a user cannot change the NDMP hosts in Device
  Configuration wizard on the NetBackup-Java Administration console. You can use
  one of the following two workarounds to accomplish this task.

  Using the user interface:
  1.  Expand 'Credentials' within the left pane of the NetBackup-Java
         Administration console.
  2.  Select NDMP Hosts.
  3.  Select the NDMP host to change.
  4.  Right-click the NDMP host and select Change from the drop-down menu.
      The Change NDMP Host window appears.

  Using the command line:
  1.  Run /volmgr/bin  tpconfig -update -default_user_id <user ID>.

+  (ET1281808) Point-in-Time (PIT) is not supported in NetBackup 6.5.2 for
  IBM_DiskStorage_FlashCopy snapshot method.

  A Point-in-Time Rollback restore from an IBM_DiskStorage_FlashCopy snapshot
  backup fails on AIX platforms for backup resources built on AIX native stacks,
  for example, JFS2 file systems on AIX LVM volumes. The
  IBM_DiskStorage_FlashCopy snapshot method is supported on the IBM DS 6000
  series of Storage Arrays.

+  (ET1250126) To perform a Point-in-Time rollback restore for an IBM DS6000
  system, you must modify a VxFI configuration file for the Windows x64
  platform.  Perform the following steps to set up and change the
  configuration file:

  1.  Install IBM VSS 3.x
  2.  Install DSCLI 5.2.2.224 at a minimum.
  3.  Add the following lines to the end of %commonprogramfiles%\SymantecShared
      \VxFI\4\ConfigFiles\ibmtsfi.conf:
        [CLI_TOOL_INFO]
        "FILEPATH"="C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\DSCLI\"
        (If DSCLI is installed to a different location, use that path in place
         of "C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\DSCLI")

  You can find the following TechNote on this issue on the Symantec Support
  Web site.
      http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302962

+  (ET1245547) While running a report for tape reports > tape lists, if you
  have a volume name or media ID name that is less than six characters, then
  while using the command bpmedialist -ls -q -mlist -ev <volume/media name>
  -M <Master server>, the report operation will fail.  

  To resolve this issue and ensure that the report operations is successful,
  include the media ID in double quotes and add enough spaces within the quotes
  to make the media ID six characters long. For example, if you have the
  media ID "AB000" which is a five-character media ID, then you can use the
  command bpmedialist as follows:

     bpmedialist -ls -q -mlist -ev "AB000 " -M omwin1

  Since the length of the volume name is five characters, a space has been
  added, and the volume name is enclosed in double quotes. It is important that
  the media ID is in double quotes if spaces were added to make the ID six
  characters long.

+  VMware NetBackup Integration Module (VNIM) not required.

  The VMware NetBackup Integration Module (VNIM) is not required for NetBackup
  for VMware. In fact, NetBackup for VMware cannot function if VNIM is
  installed.

  NOTE: If VNIM is installed, you must uninstall it before running any backups.

+  (ET1250777) An alternate client off-host backup of a NetBackup RealTime
  application may fail with status code 156. This failure applies to a
  snapshot-based backup to a storage unit (with or without a retained snapshot
  for Instant Recovery). This error occurs if the RealTime server's host tables
  are not correctly updated for the alternate client. As a result, NetBackup
  cannot make a RealTime TimeImage accessible to the alternate client, and the
  backup fails.

  To resolve this problem, see the following NetBackup TechNote on the Symantec
  Support Web site:
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303966

+  The following items are corrections that will be made to the NetBackup 6.5
  Bare Metal Restore (BMR) Administrator's Guide at the next major release of
  NetBackup.

  In the Storage Area Network Support section of Chapter 6, Restoring Clients,
  the following text appears:

     Bare Metal Restore can restore a system that is attached to a Storage Area
     Network (SAN). On Windows, AIX, and Solaris systems, if the host bus
     adapter (HBA) drivers are available in the restore environment, BMR
     automatically restores the SAN-attached volumes. BMR does not support the
     restoration of systems with SAN attached volumes on HP-UX and Linux.

  The following text is the correct replacement text.

     Bare Metal Restore can restore a system that is attached to a Storage Area
     Network (SAN). If the host bus adapter (HBA) drivers are available in the
     restore environment then
     -  On Solaris 10, BMR automatically restores the SAN-attached boot and
        data volumes.
     -  On Solaris 8 and Solaris 9, BMR automatically restores the SAN-attached
        data volumes.
     -  On Windows, BMR automatically restores the SAN-attached data volumes.
     -  On AIX, BMR automatically restores the SAN-attached data volumes.
     -  On HP-UX and Linux, BMR does not support the restoration of systems
        with SAN attached volumes.

  In the Configuration Summary section of Chapter 10, Managing clients and
  configurations the following text should be added:

     Client configuration can be modified to add, change and remove a license
     key for software discovered for a protected system. The license key, which
     is added or changed, is also added to the protected system after restore
     using the configuration to which the key was added. This facility is
     available only for Veritas Storage Foundation products.

+  (ET1267896) When performing backups using the new Pure Deduplication
  Option (PDDO) feature, Symantec suggests that users monitor their shared
  memory usage as the number of jobs increases.  The job-size throttling has
  been turned off in NetBackup 6.5.2 to allow more PDDO backups to run
  concurrently.  Please consult your NetBackup Performance Tuning Guide for
  additional information on NetBackup tuning parameters affecting shared memory
  usage.

+  (ET1274002) The recovery of a catalog image taken in version 6.5.2 of
  NetBackup is NOT supported in an earlier version of NetBackup (such 6.5)
  or vice versa.



General Documentation issues:
-----------------------------
+  (ET1197993) The 6.5 NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I, incorrectly
  states that the Virtual Tape Option is necessary in order to create a NDMP
  storage unit.  This is incorrect.  The NetBackup for NDMP license must be
  installed on the media server in order to use a host as a NDMP storage unit.

+  The NetBackup Release Notes PDF that is available for download from the
  Symantec Support Web site has been updated with the following corrections.
  Users can download the latest version of this document at their convenience.

  -  SAN Client Platform Proliferations corrections

     -  Page 7: Original paragraph -
        The following client platforms support the SAN client: AIX, HP-UX,
        Linux, Solaris, and Windows, and the following media server platforms
        support the SAN client: Red Hat 4 update 3 Linux x86_64 and
        Solaris 9/10 SPARC. The SAN client will be supported in this release
        with disk storage. Support for tape storage may be added in a future
        release.

        Page 7:  Corrected paragraph for NetBackup 6.5.2 -
        The following client platforms support the SAN client: AIX, HP-UX,
        Linux, Solaris, and Windows, and the following media server platforms
        support the SAN client: RedHat 4 Update 3, RedHat 4 Update 5 and
        SLES 9 SP3 Linux x86_64 and Solaris 9/10 SPARC. The SAN client is
        supported in this release with disk storage. Support for tape storage
        may be added in a future release.

     -  Page 59, Table 2-19: Original paragraph -
        Media server     You can use the following systems for the NetBackup
                         media servers that host that are attached to the SAN:
                         -  Linux - RedHat 4.0 Update 3 X86_64 (EM64T or AMD64)
                         -  Solaris 9 and 10 (SPARC)

        Page 7:  59, Table 2-19: Corrected paragraph for NetBackup 6.5.2 -
        Media server     You can use the following systems for the NetBackup
                         media servers that host that are attached to the SAN:
                         -  Linux - RedHat 4 Update 3, RedHat 4 Update 5,
                            SLES 9 SP3 X86_64 (EM64T or AMD64)
                         -  Solaris 9 and 10 (SPARC)

  -  NetBackup PureDisk Deduplication Option Naming Correction
     The New Features chapter in the NetBackup 6.5 Release Notes document
     incorrectly refers to the PureDisk Deduplication Option as PureDisk Storage
     Option or PureDisk Optimization Option.  These names and the corresponding
     description have been corrected and a new updated version of the NetBackup
     Release Notes document that is available for download from the Symantec
     Support Web site.

+  The information about which policy types that support the client encryption
  option was not included in the NetBackup 6.5 Release Notes document.  The
  following list shows the policies types that support encryption in
  NetBackup 6.5.  This list will be updated and placed in the Release Notes
  document at the next major release of NetBackup.

  - AFS
  - DB2
  - DataStore
  - Informix-On-BAR
  - LOTUS_NOTES
  - Microsoft Exchange
  - Microsoft SharePoint
  - Microsoft SQL-Server
  - Microsoft Windows
  - Oracle
  - SAP
  - Standard
  - Sybase

  If you use one of the following policy types, you will not be able to select
  the encryption check box in the policy attributes interface.

  - DataTools-SQL-BackTrk
  - FlashBackup
  - FlashBackup-Windows
  - NDMP
  - NetWare
  - OS/2
  - Vault

+  (ET1268273) FlashBackup incremental backups do not operate as described in
  the NetBackup 6.5 Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide, page 82.

  The next revision of the Snapshot Client guide will contain information
  similar to the following:

  For FlashBackup and FlashBackup-Windows full policies, all blocks in the
  disk or raw partition (as selected in the Backup Selections tab) are backed
  up.

  For FlashBackup and FlashBackup-Windows incremental policies, complete files
  are backed up based on changes to the file Modified Time or Create Time
  since the last full or incremental backup.

  For FlashBackup-Windows Incremental policies, the Modified Time and Create
  Time changes are queried from the NTFS Master File Table (MFT) for File
  entries only (directories are skipped). Any newly created or modified files
  are backed up as complete files and corresponding directories up the tree are
  also backed up. Newly created but empty directories are not considered for
  FlashBackup-Windows incremental backups.

  Warning:
  During FlashBackup-Windows incremental backups, jobs will complete with
  status 0 but some skipped files may occur due to limitations with the NTFS
  file system.

  The NTFS Master File Table does not update the Create Time or Modified Time
  of a file or folder when the following changes are made:
  - File or directory rename operations
  - File or directory security changes
  - File or directory attribute changes (read only, hidden, system, archive bit)

=============================
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 Release Update.

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

  - If you are planning to install this Release Update as a part of an
    upgrade from a 6.0 MPx release, you must first install NetBackup 6.5 GA
    before you install this Release Update.

 - If you are planning to install this Release Update 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

 - 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 any host during pack application.


For Release Update installation on a UNIX Cluster Environment:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) Before you install this Release Update, make sure that NetBackup is at
  release level 6.5 and configured to run in a cluster.

2) Install this Release Update on the inactive node(s) of the cluster
  (perform steps 1 through 3 below).

3) Install this Release Update on the active node of the cluster (perform
  steps listed below).

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

  NOTE: A directory "NB_6.5.3" will be created in the cluster shared
        directory. This directory stores files that will be needed during an
        uninstall - do not remove it.

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


As root on the NetBackup 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_6.5.3 and NB_CLT_6.5.3 Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

  NOTE: Selecting the server Release Update will automatically install the
        client Release Update 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 update has not
        been previously installed. The client Release Update will NOT be
        installed automatically during a reinstall of the server Release Update.  

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

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.start_all

4) The update 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 Release Update.



=========================
V. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
=========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the Release Update 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:

    ./NB_update.uninstall

4) Verify that the updatte uninstalled successfully by checking:

    /usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

5) If necessary, restart the NetBackup and Media Manager daemons:

    /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bp.start_all

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 = ET1275559

Description:
   A bpdbm core dump would occur because of a badly formatted ovgetmsg routine.
   A change was made to address this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1302929

Description:
   A change was added to fix memory leaks discovered in the bpplsched command
   line and nbproxy which use common free routines.  The cause of the problem
   was that the command line would mix results from different queries.  The
   c_receive_flag determines if the contents of a structure are freed and if
   queries are mixed like this, the value may not be the same.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1302749
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1300264
Titan cases:  220-369-133 311-946-518 320-117-267 320-122-713

Description:
   User backups with windows configured to be 24x7, would fail at midnight
   with a status code 196.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1317013
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1292141
Titan cases:  220-319-568 240-781-624 311-955-023

Description:
   Backups would fail with a status code 230 when using the en_GB.ISO8859
   locale.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1317008
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1295547
Titan cases:  230-554-457

Description:
   The policy execution manager (nbpem) would core dump after restarting a
   job that had been running before the upgrade to NetBackup 6.5.2.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1317006
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1297993
Titan cases:  291-011-673

Description:
   The policy execution manager (nbpem) would exit with an ASSERT failed
   error that indicated m_due was less than or equal to m_startTime.
   
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1317202
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1269997
Titan cases:  320-107-578

Description:
   Resource requests for bpduplicate (vault) were failing because of a
   missing parameter.  The Vault duplications would fail with a status 800.

Workaround:
   This would only occur when duplicating to storage units on
   pre-NetBackup 6.5 media servers where the master server is at 6.5 or later.
   The workaround would be to not target storage units on pre 6.5 media
   servers when duplicating.  It also will not be an issue for single-image
   duplications.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1317047
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1293461
Titan cases:  240790925 281375544 290011922 291-010-092

Description:
   The Client Attribute "Maximum Data Streams" was being ignored with
   NetBackup 6.5.2 and the global value "Maximum jobs per client" was always
   taking precedence irrespective if the setting was higher or lower.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1276489

Description:
   The bpexpdate -deassignempty command was failing to expire media on NDMP
   hosts.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1318091
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1295660
Titan cases:  311-944-025

Description:
   On Windows master servers, the online catalog backup was failing with a
   status of 2 for the parent job and 42 for one of the child jobs when
   non-multi-streamed policies were configured as critical policies in the
   catalog backup policy.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, remove critical policies from the online
   catalog backup policy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1289921

Description:
   If backup jobs and synthetic/duplicate jobs were in progress simultaneously,
   some of the drives would become unusable.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, find the unusable drive and release it using
   the nbrbutil utility.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1322984

Description:
   A change was made to address a bpbdm core dump issue that occurred when
   the client list was being freed when user interface executed a
   Q_IMAGE_HWOS_GET query and the get_hwos() would perform a double free of
   the client list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1364407

Description:
   When a policies schedule was changed the retention level was not correct
   when modified to a value other than the default value.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1364422

Description:
   Synthetic Backup jobs would fail with a status 1 and were retried
   repeatedly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1322803
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1266944
Titan cases:  281-351-695 281-459-396

Description:
   If media servers or other hosts not in the server list attempted to connect
   to a master, the connection would be rightly rejected.  However, the
   diagnostic-logging-level 2 logging message itself used a non-threadsafe
   function that would cause memory corruption if threads collided.  This
   would lead to crashes or erratic behavior for services such as EMM and PEM.

Workaround:
   Search for "allow_peer" messages in the logs and reconfigure or
   decommision all of the servers that are logged as "not allowing
   connection".  These servers are not in the master's server list, which
   triggers the log message.  
   
   If the diagnostic logging level is set to not log Level 2 messages, the
   problem is averted.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1364661

Description:
   A change was made to to correct an issue that caused NBPEM to crash during
   an upgrade from NetBackup 6.5 to 6.5.3. The crash would happen in a
   clustered environment when nbpem was shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1373019

Description:
   All DSSU schedules were deleted (from PEM point of view) upon updating one
   DSSU schedule.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383374
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1300103
Titan cases:  320-117-348

Description:
   bprd would core dump under certain circumstances when there was an invalid
   media server in the server list and the configuration was being updated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1382658
Titan cases:   220-327-515

Description:
   If the VNET_OPTIONS entry was defined in your configuration (bp.conf
   on UNIX or the Registry on Windows) and if some values in the entry were
   zero, problems would occur if you attempted to upgrade to NetBackup 6.5.2
   or later.  An example entry would be:
   
   VNET_OPTIONS = 120 3600 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
   
   If you attempt to run with this entry in NetBackup 6.5.2 or later,
   networking will not work on your machine.
   

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, remove the VNET_OPTIONS entry from your
   configuration before you upgrade, or replace the 0-values in the entry
   with the NetBackup 6.5.2 defaults before upgrading.
   
   For example:
   
   VNET_OPTIONS = 120 3600 200 40 3 1 30 0 0 0
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383586
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1295782

Description:
   For SharedDisk volumes, the unmount event triggers a clean up of all the
   committed space allocated for the backup. If the unmount event is missed,
   the volume may appear over-committed and may not get picked for future
   backups. As a results, MDS would not find any available Shared Disk volumes
   and backups in a pure Shared Disk environment would queue indefinitely.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383584

Description:
   An issue existed that caused jobs to fail with a status 16: unimplemented
   feature error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1184889
Titan cases:  220-111-009

Description:
   Cache results of server list comparisons for CORBA communications. The
   cache is intended to improve performance for configurations with a large
   number of hosts in the server list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1276613
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1135854
Titan cases:  281-213-065

Description:
   During long running back up jobs, the firewall between the master and
   media server will close connection if it is configured to do so. This
   causes a break in communication between the master and media server and
   a failure of backups.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, disable the firewall timeout.  However, this
   may be detrimental to firewall security.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1382632
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1238838
Titan cases:  311-880-802

Description:
   A NetBackup service such as nbjm would sometimes abort, leaving a core
   dump. A change has been made to correct this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383839
Titan cases:  220-337-212

Description:
   On some AIX systems, it was discovered that ltid would not start. The
   stdout error is "Unable to get external file version from EMM database".
   The logs show the following CORBA error: "Msg exceeds maximum allowed size".

Workaround:
   You can avoid this issue by setting LANG=C in the shell before starting
   ltid.
   
   You an also change the system default by editing /etc/environment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383438
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1322123
Titan cases:  240-776-132

Description:
   A change was made to improve the parsing of the Job Try file in nbproxy
   because it would take a long time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383440
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1269781
Titan cases:  290-988-768

Description:
   The NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) would core dump under a load from NOM
   data queries: NBPolicyCollector::Collect.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383434
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1234532
Titan cases:  220-236-821

Description:
   When you stop the services from the NetBackup Administration Console, the
   services would go away and you could not restart them from user interface.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383442
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1281452
Titan cases:  230-535-095

Description:
   After running activate and deactivate policies in NOM the NetBackup-Java
   Adimistration Console was unable to read policies.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383733
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1372893

Description:
   If NetBackup services are restarted when jobs using shared disk are active,
   the NetBack Resource Broker (nbrb) may not be able to de-allocate resources
   properly on a restart. nbrb unmounts the shared disks correctly but fails
   to inform MDS to de-allocate the resources.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, re-start the services, then wait between 5
   and 10 minutes, and then run "nbrbutil -resetall" if no jobs are active.
   This will de-allocate the resources. If the jobs are active, you should
   wait for the jobs to finish before you run nbrbutil -resetall.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383750
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1361178
Titan cases:  220-349-593 320-132-770

Description:
   If the MDS allocations were removed directly either using the
   nbrbutil -releaseMDS command or by deleting the record from database,
   the NetBackup Resource Broker (nbrb) would not be able to remove the
   corresponding allocation records from its database. This would cause the
   resource broker's drive cache to misbehave, for example, jobs may not
   get the resources even when the drives were available, and perform other
   redundant operations which consumes CPU cycles.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383540
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1296912
Titan cases:  220-325-975 281-378-560

Description:
   A change has been made to address an issue that would cause a multiple
   copy, Oracle database backup to fail in some situations.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1384029
Titan cases:  291-009-192

Description:
   The FT Target Mode HBA was unable to login to the switch in F-Port mode.
   Only the L-port login would work. This issue applied to all HBA firmware
   variants that are supported - ISP2312, ISP2422 and ISP2432.
   
   If a particular fabric setup only supports F-Ports, then FT backups could
   not be performed.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1375483

Description:
   A change was made to correct a timing issue that bpduplicate would
   encounter when it tried to get the job priority from bpjobd, which would
   sometimes take longer than expected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383736
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1278280
Titan cases:  320-111-786

Description:
   The nbemmcmd -renamehost command would not update the hostname that the
   DA_Thread_Pool uses for the heartbeat check.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this type of issue, rename a host with the nbemmcmd
   -renamehost command and then stop and start nbemm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383527
Titan cases:  222-222-222

Description:
   When applying a NetBackup server patch, a change was made so that local
   modifications to the server.conf file will not be lost.

Workaround:
   To ensure any local modifications to the server.conf are not removed, add
   the following line to the vxdbms.conf file to turn off automatic
   server.conf updates:
   
      VXDBMS_SELF_TUNING=OFF
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383523
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1300087
Titan cases:  240758288

Description:
   The stale port connection on the media server was being terminated by the
   firewall.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, lengthen the firewall's timeout time or
   disable that feature for an approved IP address.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1384879

Description:
   The NetBackup Database Manager would core dump when trying to log a debug
   message while adding an image fragment.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1385083 ET1385111 ET1386294
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1278625
Titan cases:  230-605-520

Description:
   On an extremely busy system, the bpdbm service could experience two
   intermittent problems:
   
   1. The service could hang for 30 minutes after starting a
      Q_IMAGE_READ_FILES_FILE query, and eventually cause bpdbm to
      terminate with a status code 63.
   
   2. A Q_IMAGE_READ_FILES_FILE query would be processed successfully by
      bpdbm, but the socket would be closed on Windows platforms in a
      manner that caused the bptm process that issued the query to fail
      with a Windows status code of 10054.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383757
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1316106
Titan cases:  320-117-413

Description:
   NetBackup Job Manager (nbjm) delays 90 minutes making thousands of
   JMUtility::updateParamsFileWOFB calls between receiving resources and
   starting bpbrm.  This delay affected scheduled and user-directed backup
   jobs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1384675
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1318016
Titan cases:  240-790-104

Description:
   Restoring a backup taken with a storage unit that contains the application
   cluster virtual name would fail because NetBackup was unable to determine
   the NetBackup version of the application cluster name.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1318015
Titan cases:  281-380-220

Description:
   A FlashBackup restore from an AIX RS6000 master would fail with a
   status 5 error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1385061
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1269930
Titan cases:  220-289-048

Description:
   If the primary lifecycle policy was set to inactive for a long period
   of time (for example, four days) then reactivated, it was possible that
   a large number of images would need to be processed. In this scenario,
   nbstserv would use so much memory that a core dump would occur.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1382599

Description:
   The snapshot policy wizard would recommend the obsolete VSS_Transportable
   FIM. This has been corrected to recommend the VSS FIM, which can be used
   in local and offhost (Alternate Client) backup environments.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1376805

Description:
   The NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) would crash on shutdown because expired
   snapshots taken during non-streamed windows open file backup (WOFB) jobs
   were deleted.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383782

Description:
   Synthetic schedules with a space specified in the keyword field would
   make the job fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   A change was made to resolve an issue in the V_string function that
   would cause bpfis to crash.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383499

Description:
   A change was made to ensure proper cleanup occurs when a Snapshot backup
   fails at a stage after a Flashcopy was created at the array level.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1384270
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1297816
Titan cases:  240-786-065

Description:
   When attempting to run an Oracle backup on a Master server that is
   configured with the Required_Interface setting, bpdbsbora would fail to
   connect and the job failed with a status 29. This occurred because nbjm
   did not pass the "-ri <reqd interface>" option to the bpbrm command line
   by nbjm. The NetBackup Job Manager passed the new option only if the
   media server version was 6.5.2 or greater. Since nbrb is returning the
   media server version as 0, nbjm did not pass the new
   "-ri <reqd interface>" option.

Titan cases:  220-280-182

Description:
   Changes were made to improve slow resource allocations for jobs using
   storage unit (STU) groups and prioritized allocation. The behavior that
   was seen is thus:
     - An STU group is looked at and an STU is identified within the group.
     - The Enterprise Media Manager (EMM) finds a drive (even if it is
         waiting for an unload) on the highest ranking media server in the
         group (regardless if there are drives that are immediately
         available on other STU's in the group)
     - EMM then allocates that drive - without looking for any other
         available drives.
     - The process is repeated, again, not looking for any other STU's in
         the group (which have many available drives).

Description:
   On some T5220 systems running Solaris 10 SPARC, the system would hang
   during a reboot if windrvr6 was configured in the /etc/driver_aliases

   This issue can be prevented by installing FT server module windrvr6 only
   after the system boots. In addition, it can be impelemented in the
   configuration scripts - nbftsrvr_config and nbftsrvr
   
   To avoid hangs on subsequent reboots, remove windrvr6 entries from the

Etrack Incident = ET1384919

Description:
   The duplication manager should process successful backup-only images as
   lifecycle complete even if the lifecycle is inactivated.
   
   As of NetBackup 6.5.2, the duplication manager would ignore all images
   if the lifecycle is inactivated. This was to stop any duplication jobs
   running for such images while backups are happening.
   
   However, this also stops the processing of backup-only (ITC) images that
   have created expected backup copies to be considered as lifecycle
   complete. Therefore, until the lifecycle is not activated back, such
   images, though have been completed, will sit as lifecycle incomplete and
   will not expire even if their expiration date arrives.

Description:
   NetBackup performance, both its daemons or services and in the user
   interface, will be negatively impacted when DNS services are slow to
   return hostname or reverse-IP lookups. Because all hostnames and aliases
   on a master or media server may be examined while accepting or creating
   a connection, if some of these names are not in the DNS, and the DNS
   environment is slow to respond, this will delay NetBackup, and cause the
   user interface to be non-responsive.
   
   This change logs the offending hostname whenever such a lookup takes
   longer than five seconds, making it easier to know what to clean out of
   a configuration.  The new log messages look like the following:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1430825
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1373028
Titan cases:  311-971-198

Description:
   For duplicate multiple copies, all duplicate jobs would fail if any of
   the Disk Copies have a Dummy Allocation supplied when executing on
   Windows.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1428794

Description:
   nbstserv would halt processing while waiting for an nbdelete call to
   complete.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1431220

Description:
   A failed attempt to validate a copy during a duplication job was holding a
   write lock on the image file and causing other bpdbm child processes to
   hang until the duplication job finished.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1428632

Description:
   Changes were made to address two memory leak errors found in the VxFI
   code that lead to a SharedDisk backup failure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1432786
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1424199
Titan cases:  281-416-722

Description:
   A change has been made to address an issue that could cause file system
   corruption on a Disk. This issue would cause a media server to go into a
   panic state while mounting a corrupted file system. The fix ensures that
   the mount operation verifies the device mount state independent of the
   return code of the mount command.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1431217

Description:
   Bpduplicate would not allow a copy of a backup to be started if another
   duplication for the same backup was in progress.  Also, if more than one
   duplication to different destination copies from the same disk source copy
   occurs simultaneously, the duplications would either hang or error.

Workaround:
   To work around the simultaneous duplications from the same disk source
   copy hang or error issue, disable shared memory duplications.  Touch the
   following file on the master server:
   
   UNIX:
      /usr/openv/netbackup/NOSHMDUP
   
   Windows:
      <installed_path>\NetBackup\NOSHMDUP
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1431957
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1417636
Titan cases:  311-991-075

Description:
   EMM would crash because it was not handling a CNOS exception that was
   leaked through the Event Manager supplier-side library.
   
   The createConnectObjects() method makes calls directly to CNOS but in
   some cases it does not surround those calls in try/catch blocks. This
   caused CNOS exceptions to be leaked to the caller, in this case EMM. EMM
   catches specific exceptions; those not caught are pushed up the stack
   until it exits as an unhandled exception.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1432152

Description:
   A change was made to address an Incremental backup data loss issue that
   would occur if bpbkar took more than 10 seconds to start.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1432733

Description:
   A failed job waiting to be retried would prevent a job session from being
   closed. Therefore, the cold catalog backup to be run at the end of session
   was delayed until after all of the job-tries end and the job is done.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1431905

Description:
   A change was made to address an issue that caused nbpem to be caught in an
   infinite loop, resulting in no jobs being able to start.

   During a True Image Restore (TIR) data backup, if the socket used to get
   the data failed, the format of the tape could be written incorrectly.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1436738
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1400885
Titan cases:   291-058-781

Description:
   The requested Start Time calculation caused a full backup to be scheduled
   repeatedly if the last incremental backup occurred between windows and the
   frequency was a multiple of 24 hours. To fix this issue, pre-window
   checking was added so that if the last backup falls between windows, the
   due time can pick up the next window even if it is the same day.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1439637

Description:
   A change has been added to address a core dump issue that would occur
   with nbdelete.

Titan cases:  240-588-298

Description:
   Changes were added that allow the SQL Anywhere database server to run with
   the -m option, where the transaction log is truncated when a checkpoint
   occurs. This option is set to the server.conf file. If the -m option is
   set, an incremental hot catalog backup will always be a full.
   
   In addition, options to nbdb_backup command were added to only backup the
   tlog and to truncate it as shown in the following example.  
     nbdb_backup -online dest [-tlog_only] [-truncate_tlog]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1173808 ET1191396 ET1225254 ET1224352 ET1224326 ET1229771

Description:
   bprecover would crash while attempting to recover a Bare Metal Restore (BMR)
   database file that exceeded 2GB in size.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1149230

Description:
   If an image has aged beyond its longest retention, Lifecycles continue to
   try to copy the image.  Lifecycles attempt to copy the image until the
   copy is complete or until a user cancels it by using nbstlutil.
   
   Changes have been made that change this behavior so that the "persistent
   duplication" of an image will stop attempting to complete the copy once
   the image has reached the age of the longest specified fixed retention.

Titan cases:  280-882-431

Description:
   The catalog has a query that compares a backup to the previous backup and
   lists the files that were deleted between the two backups.  This is used
   for certain backups on NearStore devices.  The query had two issues:
   
   1.  The images being queried were not locked, so if one of the images was
   expired by a different process prior to opening up the .f file, the query
   was failing in an unusual way (attempting to open the IMAGE_FILES file).
   
   2.  The query was not checking if the .f file had been successfully opened.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1158501

Description:
   An unreadable value would display in the Job ID, Job type, and status
   fields.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   DiskPool list operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1089294
Titan cases:  290-807-298

Description:
   Copies in the catalog that are missing their first fragments are not
   cleaned up.  A fix has been added that allows automatic cleanup of orphaned
   fragments. It occurs as part of the same operation that cleans up expired
   copies.

Workaround:

Etrack Incident = ET1056443
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1039776
Titan cases:  280-885-521 290-938-579

Description:
   If the bp.conf SERVER entry was changed from a short name to a fully
   qualified domain name (FQDN) or vice versa, and a hot catalog backup with
   vault was performed, the Vault job would 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) is used.  

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue (on UNIX systems only), create a symbolic link
   between the FQDN and the short names in the imageDB directory.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1190511

Description:
   The NetBackup Job Manager failed to cancel a job because it determined that
   bpbrm had not started yet. A change was made to the Job Manager to set the
   state to indicate bpbrm had been started.  Thus, if a cancel is processed,
   it then sends a signal to bpbrm allowing the cancel to work properly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1187864

Description:
   The stream discovery was not honoring the preprocess interval.  A change
   was made to the stream discovery to honor the preprocess interval on a
   per-policy basis by creating a separate stream file for each policy. In
   addition, the -streams option was removed from the bpcoverage command to
   allow the duplicate stream discovery code to be purged.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1190656

Description:
   A change was made to disable the use of multiple StorageServers for the

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1180939

Description:
   The new Preserve multiplexing option is available to preserve
   multiplexing for tape-to-tape duplication within a storage lifecycle.
   This option option works best in environments where duplicating backups
   to lifecycle destinations serves to vault backups and where the
   possibility of a restore from a multiplexed backup is small.
   
   For more information about this new feature, refer to the following
   TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

Etrack Incident = ET1176263
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1160602
Titan cases:  290-869-698

Description:
   The bpplcatdrinfo command ignores the -Modify and -Set options when
   changing the setting on a remote master server from a local master server.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, you can temporarily change the default master server
   to be one of those specified with the -M option.  Or you can create a dummy
   catalog policy on the default master server so that when bpplcatdrinfo
   checks whether the name is valid, it finds something.

Additional Notes:
   The command checks whether the given policy name is for a catalog-backup
   policy, but it does so on the default master server instead of on the
   servers specified with the -M option.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1194916

Description:
   If a user configuration has one symetrix array and another array attached
   to the local array in a DR setup, then in such a configuration the user
   would not be able to list the devices for creating a DiskPool. Because this
   listing would fail, the user would not be able to create a DiskPool for
   any symetrix array.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1090933

Description:
   An issue existed that could cause the nbproxy for jobs to wait indefinitely
   if NOM had issues.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1193420 ET1164441

Description:
   Users were unable to create a Standard and DB2 policy with the option
   "Perform Snapshot backup" enabled. bpjava was rejecting the bpplinfo
   command because it contained a ";" character in the command to be
   executed by the shell.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, do not use a ";" character in the
   -snapshot_method_args argument.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1167178
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1160557

   occurring.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1051426 ET1199018

Description:
   The policy command line interface (CLI) did not have a mechanism to
   prevent one operator from overwriting policy updates made by another
   operator.  This patch displays the current "generation" for the policy in
   the output from bppllist command.  Policy commands such as bpplinfo and
   bpplinclude now have a "-generation" option.  If the generation is
   supplied, the catalog will verify that it matches the current generation
   for the policy and fail the request if it does not.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1134820

Description:
   After catalog recovery, the NetBackup scheduler was suspended. NetBackup
   would not run scheduled backup jobs until NetBackup was stopped and
   restarted. A warning message is now displayed at the end of the catalog
   recovery to indicate this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1159607

Description:
   The parent job's estimated size and file count are always zero and need to
   be set for the correct volume to be selected by resource broker.  A change
   to the Policy Execution Manager was made to set the parent's estimated size
   to the largest value of all of its children.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1117080

Description:
   If for a netapp filer, both credentials (such as, fas3020c1 and
   fas3020c1.vxind.veritas.com) are added, only one of them is added to the
   connection list, because the filer serial number is same for both.
   
   Now suppose that the fas3020c1 credential was the one that was added. If a
   user tried to find a connection object for fas3020c1.vxdind.veritas.com,
   the connection fails even though proper credentials were supplied.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, remove the duplicate entries from the credential list
   and then give the FQDN of the filer.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1124031

Description:
   Snapshot backups fail during a device import for non-Sun-branded HBA drivers
   due to lun number caching.

Workaround:
   To work around this issue, populate sd.conf with 256 entries. Once the limit
   has been reached the caching logic defaults to array for assigning  a lun.
   One side effect to this work around is that a large sd.conf will increase
   the device rescanning time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1132295

Description:
   Backup of a volume to snapshot (with "Snapshot Only" set in the schedule)
   would not run until a tape drive was available.

Description:
   With the Language Pack installed, the nbshareddisk release command would
   not capture the user-defined identifier's (UDID). The following error
   message appears in Japaneses and the UDID for each LUN is not captured.
   
     "List of the UDID that can't access to the host"
   
   If Language Pack is not installed or used, it correctly displays the
   following message and captures UDID for each LUN.
     "Released reservation on device"

Description:
   When the touch file /usr/openv/netbackup/HARD_LINK_AS_FILE is present,
   bpbkar treats all hard-links as a normal file.

Additional Notes:
   This increases the size of an overall backup and restore operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1199959

Description:
   Changes have been added to address the following issues:
   
   1) The return status of bpcr_read_dir_rqst was checked and it was
      determined that the bpcr_read_dir_rqst() call returns positive
      values. A change was made to correct this call.
   
   2) The bpcr_get_process_list_rqst call returns either a 0 or a positive
      error number while checking was only occurring for a negative number.
      This may have caused a memory leak.
   
   3) Input validation should be tighter in Volume* files.

Description:
   If multiple duplications are run simultaneously using the same source image
   (with different copy numbers), one of the duplications will fail.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, do not run multiple duplications simultaneously using
   the same source image, too close together.  You may need to create a script
   to do this.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1207651

Description:
   The NetBackup Job Manager would fail to delete the snapshot for WOFB backup
   jobs when streaming was disabled.  A change was made in the Job Manager to
   save the snapshot ID so that when the Policy Execution Manager initiates a
   snapshot cleanup, the Job Manager can find the snapshot ID in the PARAMS
   file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1152497

Description:
   A problem was found that caused the NOM server thread count to increase to
   a high number.  This increased thread count rendered the NOM user interface

Etrack Incident = ET1213670

Description:
   In case there are more than one device in a single call to import,
   NetBackup would provide some intelligence by storing the host connection
   information within the storage unit.
   
   In most instances, the hostConnection name on the array was given as,
   "exampleHost" while the actual hostname was exampleHost.subnet.domain.com.
   This caused the comparison to fail with no host name left for the mapping
   or unmasking operation on the array.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146542

Description:
   Changes were added in this release to allow an import of a media from a

Etrack Incident = ET1219038

Description:
   Added SharedDisk support for RedHat Linux and SuSe Linux systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1202823

Description:
   It was possible that after a duplication was started bptm could be delayed
   by mounting issues or something similar. In this case it might be delayed
   long enough for bpdm to attempt to connect to bptm over the socket that it
   expects to be available, and timeout before bptm has a chance to create the
   socket. The lack of vnet connection retries caused this scenario to fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   AMD x86 and x64 platforms for SharedDisk media servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1202383

Description:
   An issue can occur with an Instant Recovery Backup Policy with new
   hardware FIMs that have an unequal number of targets associated with all
   of the sources. For example, an Instant Recovery Backup Policy with new
   hardware FIMs, has two resources, resource A and resource B.  Resource A
   has three targets: A1, A2, and A3 while resource B has one target, B1. In
   this example, the first backup is successful, however, for the second
   backup the snapshot resource spec for B is not received and it fails.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, change the policy so that you have an equal
   number of targets for all of the sources.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1214304

Description:
   The schedule name was not displayed in the Activity Monitor for the jobs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1136148

Description:
   If media server is in administrative pause state, the nbemmcmd -listhosts
   -verbose command should show this paused state.

Workaround:
   nbemmcmd -listhosts -verbose displays an integer value for machineState.
   If this is an odd number (least significant bit set), the host is in an
   administrative pause state.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1172024 ET1184726 ET1226766

   PEM has been refactored for improved stability, scalability, and
   extensibility.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1209391

Description:
   Both nbemm and nbrb invokes the notification script. They start the script
   and wait for the script to complete. This can cause a block for some time
   with the calling thread, and if the script started by nbemm calls back into
   nbemm, it can lead to a deadlock.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1219962

Description:
   Sharepoint backups would fail if the allow multiple data streams was set to
   false. A change was made to the Policy Execution Manager to ignore this

Description:
   Changes have been added to correct some SIS issues in capacity management.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1219687

Description:
   A change was made to merge sections two and three of the job params file to
   allow a Windows Open File Backup (WOFB) job that has streaming disabled to
   save the snapshot ID of the parent job to the params file so that the
   snapshot can be deleted later using the snapshot ID that is stored in the
   jobs params file.   The original design did not allow the signature of the
   params file to change once created.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1147842

Description:
   A change has been made in NOM so that it relies on the hostSession.ping
   (synchronous) method for finding the liveness of a connection, rather than
   using heartbeats.  This change means the recovery strategy must change for
   NBSL so that it too no longer relies on heartbeats.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1224240

Description:
   A change was made to address an issue that would cause NBJM to crash on
   shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   This release contains enhancements for better support management of
   NetBackup 5.1 legacy images on upgraded DSSUs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1210921

Description:
   A multi-path, standalone, non-shared drive caused confusion in EMM. EMM
   would think the scan path was different than the one that ltid was using.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1178113

Description:
   A change was made to implement server-side caching for the device monitor on
   the EMM server.

   "no entity found" found error.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this error, configure a non-fully-qualified client name
   in the NetBackup policy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1215580

Description:
   NetBackup will queue backup jobs to a disk storage unit if it thinks there
   is not enough space on the disk to store the backups.  For disk storage
   units with SIS devices, the device may be able to store the backup because
   of data deduplication.  The change causes NetBackup to not queue backup
   jobs to SIS devices.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1226421 ET1212341

Description:
   In an IBM RS/6000 system the volume snapshot information is cached as
   part of a select call and then use it in a make operation. If only one
   target has "maintain snapshot for instance recovery" set then during a
   second backup, the delete call for the previous image and the create call
   of new image were being interleaved. This resulted in a backup failure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   The bpexpdate -deassignempty command may not work if one or more media
   servers were offline.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1225909 ET1234586

Description:
   The following enhancements were added in this release to ensure that
   NetBackup 6.x supports back-revision 5.x media servers.
   
   Vmscd    - Clear the restart bit if ltid is confirmed to not be running.
            - Increased the 45 second timeout to 5 minutes.

   interface.

Additional Notes:
   The default NBAC authorization schema has been updated to give Read
   permission on the License resource to all User Groups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1187087

Description:
   Installing Solaris X64 platform keys for NetBackup Enterprise Server would
   fail because the define for SOLARIS_X86 was not included in the make files
   for the server bpminlicense command and bpcd on the client.  This caused
   the compiled platform in the licensing header file to be incorrect and
   resulted in a platform mismatch for Solaris X64 keys.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, customer keys have been modified until the NetBackup
   problem is corrected.  

Additional Notes:
   Only master and media servers were affected because licenses were not
   installed on client servers.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1232796

Description:
   The state details of jobs like bpduplicate (for example, not started using
   NBJM) was not cleared when it went from a QUEUED state to a ACTIVE state.

Description:
   bpmedia -movedb -allvolumes -newserver <hostname> -oldserver <hostname>
   
   When decommissioning a media server, a user may need a more efficient way
   of moving multiple tapes between media servers when the image database is
   very large.

Workaround:
   Run the following command for each volume assigned to the media server you
   are decommissioning.
   
   bpmedia -movedb -m <media_id> -newserver <hostname>

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1174784
Titan cases:  220-147-432

Description:
   In certain instances on HP-UX systems, pipe file descriptors may be
   incorrectly flushed. This was initially observed in VSM, and has not been
   seen in NetBackup. Symantec is proactively correcting this issue in this
   release of NetBackup as a preventative measure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1203324

Description:
   When a catalog backup is started that contains AT VxSS backup directives
   for NABC that point to a nonroot broker, an error would occur during the
   snapshot attempt of AT.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1232083
Titan cases:  311-826-710

Description:
   PrevPoolName was being set even if the pool was changed manually. A change
   has been made to correct this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   A change was made to maintain the protocol of sending exceptions instead
   of nil objects in case of failures.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1225310
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1217065
Titan cases:  240-717-814

Description:
   Image cleanup would fail because of incomplete backup images in the catalog.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, delete the offending catalog files from
   the disk.

Additional Notes:
   An improper shutdown of the NetBackup services caused the problem images.
   When shut down normally, incomplete backup images cannot occur.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1163418
Titan cases:  240-659-059

Description:
   With checkpoints and BMR enabled, a "bad image header" error appears
   because of a "no entity was found (227)" error in bpdbm after the
   "move backup job from incomplete state to done state" time has expired.

Workaround:
   The workaround for this scenario is to ignore the error message because
   it is benign.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1209428

Description:
   A verify of a large backup image would potentially fail with a "client
   process aborted" error.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1216741

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1230008
Titan cases:  290-908-260 240-730-144

Description:
   The debug files produced when a backup was run with the touch file
   NetBackup/db/images/<client>/debug_file_history in place were not accurate
   for some NDMP and FlashBackup file entries.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1221440

Description:
   A Snapshot backup takes a longer time to complete. These were issues in the
   IBM provider, device provider, and VxFS provider.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1230757

Description:
   When PEM recovers a parent job that has not yet created children, it fails
   with an EC_client_aborted error.  But when it is retried, it continues to
   fail with the same error.  A change has been added to ensure that this
   job is not tried again to avoid a continuous loop.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, manually cancel the job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1162296

Description:
   If a duplication job is in progress, expiration of the read media will not
   be allowed at that time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146475

Description:
   The message given by a hot catalog backup job in the Activity Monitor
   was confusing. It said, "Offline catalog backup FAILED". A change was made

Description:
   A gethostname failure would not produce an error message.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1234295

Description:
   With the Language Pack installed, the nbshareddisk release command would
   not capture the user-defined identifier's (UDID). The following error
   message would appear in Japaneses and the UDID for each LUN was not
   captured.

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1225889
Titan cases:  320-091-983

Description:
   When a backup is started using the wait (-w) option, the bprd child
   process is alive during backup execution and pings pem to check that it
   is alive. This ping mechanism prints a log message every second and can
   cause the bprd log to fill quickly and unnecessarily.
   
   A change has been added that ensures the message queue is read only when
   there is a message in the the queue, and not reading message queue every
   second.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1161380

Description:
   bpplinfo and bpadm would crash if the policy type was NBU-Catalog and the
   residence specified is a storage life cycle.

Etrack Incident = ET1200165
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1169657
Titan cases:  290-843-958

Description:
   Received the following warning message when deassignempty was run on an
   unassigned media and image indexing was in use.
   
     Could not deassign media due to Media Manager error (177)

Workaround:
   Do not use image indexing.

Additional Notes:
   When image indexing was in use (via the command "bpimage
   create_image_index"), in-process images were not considered when
   "bpexpdate -deassignempty" was run. If a media for an in-process job was
   not previously used, bpexpdate would attempt to deassign it and receive
   this message.  With this fix, bpexpdate will include in-process images
   even if image indexing is in use.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1237562

   increased to 32767 slots.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1196526

Description:
   If the localization of the install is not English, then it is possible that
   a duplication will hang indefinitely because of a string being improperly
   localized. (This issue has been observed with French and Chinese locals.)

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, set the localization to default, or English.

Titan cases:  220-220-209

Description:
   Vault duplication performance is impacted by "waiting on resources" while
   a tape is currently "in use" by a backup. A timeout value for NBRB "waiting
   on resources" has been created to ensure that Vault will move on to the
   next image after a specific amount of time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1242645

Description:
   When backing up to a PureDisk storage unit, the backup would fail with a

Etrack Incident = ET1223956

**Description:
   The storage service would not retry a failed duplication.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1241071

Description:
   It was possible for bpjobd to lose jobs when stopped abruptly. When bpjobd
   was restarted, the jobid file was reset to the highest jobid known to
   bpjobd. This could lead to duplicate jobids because the lost jobids may be
   known to NBPEM as suspended or incomplete jobs. In addition, the restart,
   try logs and files files for the lost jobs were removed when bpjobd recycled
   the unused files. As a result the lost jobs could not be resumed or
   restarted.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1230334

Description:
   A change has been made to enable bpclusterutil to log its actions to aid

Etrack Incident = ET1232394

Description:
   An SQL Server backup job would fail because the Policy Execution Manager
   was incorrectly passing snapshot options -fi, -fim, -catalog, and -pfi to
   the backup job.  These options are only for file-based backups and not
   stream-based backups which was the case here.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1243077

Description:
   The Resource Broker (RB) would crash when allocating resources for
   duplicate backups, synthetic backups, or multiple copy jobs.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1231197

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager was passing duplicate -alt_client options to

Description:
   The NetBackup Resourse Broker (NBRB) does not guarantee spans have top
   priority when nbrb.conf setting RESPECT_REQUEST_PRIORITY = 0, and

Workaround:
   This issue is only seen when the nbrb.conf settings are used to modify the
   NBRB job evaluation behavior.

Additional Notes:
   Because the Resource Broker may now be configured to not respect a request
   priority for the purposes of increasing throughput, spans must be treated
   differently to guarantee they are always given top priority.

**Description:
   Backup images are not accessible after upgrade from 6.5 SharedDisk
   installations to 6.5.1 or beyond on Solaris media servers. In worst case
   backup images may get overwritten causing data loss. bpverify can be
   used to verify that backup images are accessible after upgrade.
   
   For more information about this issue, refer to the following TechNote on
   the Symantec Support Web site.
   
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303369
   
   If a disk currently has Slice 6 formatted, the NetBackup 6.5 formats
   would not clean Slice 6. In this case, if a user upgrades from
   NetBackup 6.5 to a higher version, the online logic uses Slice 6 if it
   detects a valid filesystem and starts copying the backup to Slice 6 by
   overwriting the already written backups on Slice 2.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, use bpverify to detect such a disk immediately
   after the upgrade.  If some of the backup images are not accessible, this
   could be a likely reason. The disk, for which a failure occurred, can be
   found from the ShareDisk logs.
   
   Again, refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site
   for a complete set of instructions on how to work around this issue.
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/303369
   
   (If you cannot use the SPR options use the following procedure.)
     1.  Use nbsharedisk unmask to make the disk visible to one of the
         media servers.
     2.  Mount slice 2 (using OS mount command) and copy the data to the
         temporary disk.
     3.  Remove the partitions from the disk.
     4.  Clean and format the disk using nbsharedisk.
     5.  Copy the data back from the temporary disk to the original disk.

Description:
   Job Manager performed stream discovery (calling bpmount on the client)
   without checking preprocess interval. Then, when it attempted to process
   the discovery data from bpmount, it checked the preprocess interval and
   decided no discovery was needed; thus, the bpmount output was not used to
   create the stream alternate (alt) file.  End result was the file list
   from the policy was used by bpfis to create the snapshot instead of the
   streams file that caused it to expand the wild card to 70 entries. Since
   the file list did not start with a NEW_STREAM, each entry was considered
   an separate stream.

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1044565
Titan cases:  290-777-895

Description:
   During a hot catalog recovery, if the NetBackup database (NBDB)
   and the BMRDB database were recreated (a clean install) before
   recovering from the backup, the current online transaction
   log would not be able to be applied.  This was normal and expected
   behavior, however, the debug and progress logs did not give an
   adequate explanation of what occurred.  This issue has been fixed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1106710

Description:
   When upgrading from NetBackup 6.0 to NetBackup 6.5, Enterprise
   Media Manager (EMM) data for SnapVault and NearStore disk
   storage units were not upgrading correctly resulting in either
   a failed upgrade or failed backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1050155

Description:
   Device Configuration Cache would configure drives with no paths
   as enabled.  By default, any drives without a proper drive path
   (for example, only a SCSI pass-through path) should be configured
   as disabled.

Etrack Incident = ET1112392

Description:
   Robotic drive 128 was treated as a negative number in tldd/tldcd
   robot.  For example, in a robot with 128 configured drives, the
   last drive always failed a mount request and the syslog showed
   tldd/tldcd trying to mount drive "-128".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1099020

Description:
   When a drive from a back-level media server is deleted from
   the NetBackup-Java Administration Console on UNIX and Windows,
   the wrong drive can be deleted.

Workaround:
   If the drive indices do not match between the NetBackup 5.x media
   server and the NetBackup 6.x master server, then the best way of
   reliably and safely deleting the drive is by using the following
   variation of the tpconfig command on the NetBackup 5.x media server:
   
   tpconfig -delete -drive -asciiname <asciidrvname>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1096195 ET1109567

   in emmlib did not behave correctly and retries would fail for
   those functions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1106918

Description:
   Added code to determine if fibre transport (FT) is licensed in
   NBSL to avoid a situation where multiple threads wait unnecessarily
   to connect to the FT service that is not running when it is
   unlicensed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1094270

Description:
   NetBackup policies and clients are not updated in NOM.
   NOM is not receiving policy updates from NBSL.  Thus, any policy
   updates such as added, changed, deletes are not reflected in NOM.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, disable and enable data collection from NOM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1098815

Description:
   If there are a large number of media servers connected to a
   master server, then NOM would receive a timeout while collecting
   service information if some the media servers were down or not
   responding.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1082399

Description:
   An NetBackup pem core dump occurred when NBJM was terminated
   with active multi-streamed jobs but nbpem remained active.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1052425 ET1076085

Description:
   A synthetic job that failed due to a media failure or other
   issue could cause a subsequent synthetic job for the same
   policy and client to fail.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, manually remove the catalog image for the
   failed synthetic job.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1082277
Associated Primary Etrack = ET916709
Titan cases:  280-859-612

Description:
   In certain circumstances the delay between bptm and bpdm sending
   their exit status to bpduplicate, and bpduplicate receiving it
   could be great enough where bptm and bpdm would shutdown before
   the transaction was complete. This caused bpduplicate to wait far
   past the end of the actual job, and eventually fail the entire job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1109757

Description:
   Backups would fail on HP-UX 11.31 RISC systems, and a core file
   from bpnbat_helper would also be left behind.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1098045

Description:
   NetBackup 6.5 SharedDisk feature disk size is limited to 1TB
   on Solaris platforms. VTOC labeling on Solaris supports disks
   that are less than 1TB. For sizes greater than or equal to 1TB
   EFI labeling should be used. In NetBackup 6.5 VxFI does not
   support formating of EFI labeled disks. This fix adds support
   for EFI labeling on Solaris.

Etrack Incident = ET1122374

Description:
   The bpsyncinfo -add_paths did not add any paths to the cold catalog
   backup sync file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1122139

Description:
   NDMP incremental backups that included two or more paths where
   the first path had no changed files were failing to verify.

Additional Notes:
   This fix prevents the problem from occurring with backups taken
   after this fix is installed.  Backups that were taken prior to
   this patch could still fail to verify.  The problem does not
   prevent a successful restore.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1110736

Description:
   Recomputing the due time of parent jobs when a child terminated
   caused the parent-child association to be lost.  Changed the startup
   sequence so that if the Job Manager (JM) is out of sync with
   pempersist, then the persistence is over-ridden by the active or

Description:
   A race condition exists between the nbemm startup and shutdown
   sequence. When the sequence of starting and stopping nbemm is
   just right, nbemm can hang during shutdown with the following
   message.
   
   nbemm -terminate will not terminate nbemm in a timely fashion.

Workaround:
   If this issue occurs, use a hard kill (kill -9) to shut down nbemm.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1079753

Description:
   While logging to the DB Error logs, nbemm made a unsafe thread
   call that could potentially cause nbemm to crash. In NetBackup 6.5,
   the db error logging was turned off.  In addition, the command,
   bperror -disk and some disk reporting functionality was impacted.
   
   With this fix, nbemm error logging is turned on and the
   bperror -disk and disk error reports are available.  

Workaround:
   Generate application logs using vxlogiew for nbemm (fid: 111)
   for REM (oid: 219) to see disk volume related errors.

   Encoding is performed because the SharePoint 2007 object parameters
   may have spaces in them that causes command arguments to parse
   improperly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1138126

Description:
   On a Windows platform, if the media server hostname contained

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1124780

Description:
   Some servants in the NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) were not
   being evicted in case of errors.
   
   NBSL has a health check mechanism that checks the health of
   each manager. If any manager has a problem like, an EMM call
   failed or the nbproxy went down for some reason, then that
   manager was marked as failed and would be evicted. For new
   managers implemented in NetBackup 6.5 such as disk, Media, Fat,
   License, this was not done and the new managers would not be
   evicted when there was some problem with DSM/FSM/proxy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1128031

Description:
   Performing a Shareddisk operation should reserve a LUN before a

Description:
   The expiration manager expires more than the expected number of images
   if any of the images have fragment(s) that are greater than or equal
   to 2GB.
   
   1. After a volume or disk pool gets a HWM (High Water Mark) event and
   after the expiring images have passed the try_to_keep date (first pass
   of expiration), the volume size should decrease to the LWM (Low Water
   Mark).
   
   If the volume size does not decrease to the LWM and if any of the
   volume's total_capacity or free_capacity is greater than or equal to
   2GB, then the expiration manager MAY not attempt to expire any of the
   other images even though they were marked as "eligible_for_expiration".
   
   This may cause volumes to not go below the HWM or the LWM even though
   there are "eligible_for_expiration" images.
   
   2. If any of the eligible_to_expire image fragment sizes are greater
   than or equal to 2GB, then the expiration manager may expire more than
   the required images at a HWM event for a volume in an attempt to get
   the volume size below the LWM.

   was not held until the job was done using that disk volume if
   one of the images spans from that disk volume to another. This
   would make the job deadlock against itself.

Etrack Incident = ET1146673
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1143471
Titan cases:  281-221-795

Description:
   Changing a machine's master server could leave invalid
   references in the database.  The server must be removed from the
   database before it can be used with a different master server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145768

Description:
   nbemm takes a long time to shutdown when it is heavily loaded.
   In a cluster environment, the cluster is unable to offline
   under such circumstances.
   
   nbemm waits until the Resource Event Manager processes all requests
   to update the disk capacity. This can take a long time based on the
   responsiveness of Disk Service Manager.

Workaround:
   To avoid this issue, issue a hard kill.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145871
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1137937
Titan cases:  220-108-064

Description:
   Duplication would fail on the second backup ID when duplicating from
   an application cluster storage unit.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145731

Description:
   An exception caught during disk activities may cause memory
   corruption.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1140439

Description:
   The Snapshot wizard user interface did not have the capability
   to clear the VM cache.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1147391

Description:
   bpmedia would clear the IMPORTED and MEDIA_FULL bits when you
   freeze, unfreeze, suspend, or unsuspend media.
   
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146512

Description:
   In High Availability (HA) with VCS 5.0 (secure), the NetBackup
   Administration Console was showing the following error message.
   
   6006:Unable to connect server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1149222

Description:
   Database restores would get core files from bptm if they were
   canceled.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1149164

Description:
   Attempting to format multiple UDID's using the
   "nbsharedisk format" command failed with the following error.
   
   "Generic error for format failure at VM"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1150310

Description:
   The automatically scheduled bpdbm Q_IMAGE_DELETE image cleanup
   query would produce a core dimp in the is_catalog_backup_configured()
   function when the /usr/openv/netbackup/db/class directory contained
   a file or folder that was not a valid policy folder.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1140798

Description:
   An import or deport using nbsharedisk of an EMC symmetrix LUN fails
   on the SUSE 9 Linux platform.  In addition, a TimeFinder clone backup
   fails. This issue occurs because the gethostbyname_r funtionality
   does not work if a host name with a short name is present in
   "/etc/hosts" file.  

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, replace the following entry in the file
   "/etc/nsswitch.conf":
      -hosts:  files nis dns
   
   With the following entry:  
       hosts:  nis dns files
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1150834

Description:
   The media fetch operation initiated from the NetBackup Administration
   Console was taking more than 20 seconds, which was the default timeout
   value for a connection timeout.  This resulted in media not appearing
   in the console.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, increase the time-out value from 20
   seconds to 40 seconds on the NetBackup Administration Console.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1143453
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1136246
Titan cases:  240-637-777

Description:
   The Policy Execution Manager (PEM) ignores all streams that follow
   two consecutive NEW_STREAM directives in the file list.  A changed
   was made to the PEM to remove consecutive NEW_STREAM directives from
   the include file list prior to submitting the job to the Job Manager.
   This enables the job to run without having to modify the include file
   list.  In addition, it backs up all of the files specified in the
   include file list.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, remove any extra NEW_STREAM directives from
   the file list.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1152707

Description:
   Canceled SharedDisk jobs would not always release the disk volume.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1154516
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1141889
Titan cases:  240-624-463

Description:
   Storage unit group would not maintain the storage unit priority.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1153517

Description:
   Hot catalog backups would fail with a status 190 when using a remote
   EMM server and incremental hot catalog backups.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1133898

Description:
   Certain files were restoring incorrectly because they were truncating
   because of zero data.  A change was made to insure the zero data is
   properly restored.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1155366

Description:
   Incremental FlashBackups with mount points that have no changed files
   or folders could fail when the backup starts to process the next mount
   point or attempts to validate the image.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1155556
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1152563
Titan cases:  281-229-451

Description:
   Backups to Disk Staging Storage Units (DSSU) in NetBackup 6.5 would not
   work properly when using a cluster configuration.  For more information
   about this issue refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec
   Support Web site.
   
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/293873
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1155361

Description:
   In NetBackup 6.5 GA, the mmcrawl process would consume more than 1.4GB
   of memory.  This issue meant that mmcrawl could not be run on a
   Windows 32-bit system because this type of system is limited to 2GB of
   virtual space for processes and applications.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1151172

Description:
   A raw SNC Oracle backup failed with an fopen () error.  The owner and
   group ID of the primary resource, after the backup/snapshot, would get
   reverted back to superuser. Similarly, the alternate resource that
   resulted out of the snapshot did not have the similar owner and group
   ID as that of the primary one.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1152716

Description:
   bpdm would not respond to terminate signals or terminate events.  This
   kept the cluster software from stopping bpdm during long deletes.  In
   addition, nbdelete on the master server could not remotely interrupt a
   bpdm process.
   
   A change was made to address both of these issues.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1153439

Description:
   Phase 1 import fails. Import aborts (bpdm core dump).
   
   A phase 1 import would fail because of an incorrect header file that
   was not null-terminated being read. bpdm would core dump and cause the
   remaining images to not be imported.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1159304

Description:
   The NetBackup-Java Administration Console displayed the wrong number
   of media after a refresh operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145768

Description:
   An issue exists in NetBackup where you are unable to offline the
   NetBackup resources with a VCS cluster because nbemm could not be
   terminated.

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, kill the nbemm process.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1141469

Description:
   VMWare-related changes were added in the NetBackup Service Layer
   (NBSL) to improve performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1161183
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1137130
Titan cases:  290-857-049

Description:
   There is a problem with the NetBackup upgrade process when upgrading
   (from NetBackup 5.x to NetBackup 6.5) in a NetBackup cluster
   environment that results in the EMM database being created in
   /usr/openv, rather than on the shared disk.  

Workaround:
   To determine if this issue affects you, refer to the following TechNote
   on the Symantec Support Web site.
   
   http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/293034
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1160463

Description:
   The -L option for the bpverify command creates an empty log file with
   no information. Normally it creates a progress log file in the path
   that is supplied.

Workaround:
   If the full path is supplied rather than just a filename, it should
   create the file and populate it where you direct.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1158609

Description:
   The NetBackup Policy Execution Manager (NBPEM) would crash if a
   job was restarted whose schedule had been deleted from the policy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1159821

Description:
   A change was made to resolve an issue with volume cleanup that caused
   bptm to crash under certain circumstances.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1163509
Titan cases:  281-245-969

Description:
   If a user "loses" a drive path (for instance, the OS deletes it for
   some reason) and the user tries to start ltid, ltid would fail to
   initialize because the drive path was invalid.  Instead ltid will now
   DOWN the drive/path and continue its initialization.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1163509
Titan cases:  281-245-969

Description:
   If a user "loses" a drive path (for instance, the OS deletes it for
   some reason) and the user tries to start ltid, ltid would fail to
   initialize because the drive path was invalid.  Instead ltid will now
   DOWN the drive/path and continue its initialization.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1149056

Description:
   Processes would hang when an interrupt occurred during some socket
   writes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1163626
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1162799

Description:
   Attempting to restore a Basic DSU backup from a different media
   server would fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1162837

Description:
   Changes were made to address an issue that caused nbstserv to core
   dump while processing images.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1162890

Description:
   Restore for legacy Exchange would fail because the SNAP_TIME
   parameter was non-zero in the image header.  The restore failed
   because nbwin was reading the image as being a snapshot image. If the
   image was a snapshot image (SNAP_TIME was non-zero), nbwin would not
   supply a valid TEMP_DIR parameter to tar32.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1163390

Description:
   Bpdm and bptm would not seek when performing a Windows FlashBackup,
   single-file restore.  The restore would hang.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1167359

Description:
   The ability to seek to a new image location was not allowed for
   FlashBackup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1169734

Description:
   A change was added to correct a potential EMM core dump issue that
   would occur during a createMedia() operation.
