===========================
I. LIVEUPDATE FOR NETBACKUP
===========================
Creating a LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup:
-------------------------------------------
A LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup does not require any additional software, but
is simply an HTTP server or disk share that has been populated with the contents
of this LiveUdpate Server for NetBackup bundle.

1. Create a LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup.
a. Configure either an HTTP server or a shared disk that can be accessed by
all NetBackup hosts that you plan to update. Refer to the "NetBackup
LiveUpdate" chapter of the NetBackup 6.5 Installation Guide for Windows.

The LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup can be a Windows or UNIX host.
NetBackup LiveUpdate policies can be used to update NetBackup on either
Windows or UNIX machines.

b. Download the following file(s) into the root directory of the NetBackup
LiveUpdate server, which is either the HTTP root directory or the shared
disk directory.
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINia64_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINx64_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINx86_<6 digit number>.zip

where <6 digit number> is an internal tracking identifier

You only need to extract the bundles for the windows platforms you
plan to update.


2. Extract the following file(s) into the root directory of the NetBackup
LiveUpdate server, which is either the HTTP root directory or the shared
disk directory.
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINia64_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINx64_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.WINx86_<6 digit number>.zip

a. To extract the bundle(s) on a Windows system use an appropriate unzip
utility.

b. To extract the bundle(s) on a UNIX system use the following command.
Determine if your UNIX system has "unzip", otherwise you will need
to obtain a version compatible with your UNIX system.

unzip NBLU_6.5.3.WINia64_<6 digit number>.zip
unzip NBLU_6.5.3.WINx64_<6 digit number>.zip
unzip NBLU_6.5.3.WINx86_<6 digit number>.zip

This creates a large number of files that comprise a LiveUpdate Server for
NetBackup. Do not rename, move, or delete any files that were extracted.



NetBackup LiveUpdate Known Issues:
----------------------------------
The following issues pertain specifically to the LiveUpdate server for NetBackup
product.

+ (ET 1176187) Installing 6.5.3 Java 64 bit on a IA64 server via LiveUpdate
will not work. There is a known issue with the registration script in 6.5 GA.
As a result, the NB_JAV_6.5.3.IA64.winnt.IA64.exe update needs to be
separately downloaded from the Symantec Support Web Site and installed
manually.

+ Page 118 and 119 of the NetBackup 6.5 Installation Guide for Windows
indicates the use of a universal naming convention path (UNC) as one of the
acceptable methods of using a Windows machine as a LiveUpdate server for
NetBackup. An example of a UNC path on Windows is "\\server\shared_dir\".

Currently, when a client is configured to use a UNC for the LiveUpdate
server, and the update is launched using the policy execution on the
LiveUpdate server, the nbliveup process on the client starts and then halts
shortly after starting.

This is the result of system permissions and the local SYSTEM account's
inability to resolve network drives. Refer to the following TechNote on the
Symantec Support Web Site for more information.

http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/294336

+ If you are updating a clustered NetBackup server in a VCS configuration,
Symantec recommends that you run the manual patch install.

+ NetBackup LiveUpdate jobs to update an AIX or HPIA64 NetBackup Master or
Media server will fail with either a yellow job status 1, or a red job
status 77 in the Activity Monitor. This is caused when the update sizes
exceed the default maximum download cache size imposed by the LiveUpdate
agent.

Exact Error Messages:
Look for the following message in the Java LiveUpdate agent log
/opt/Symantec/livedupdt.log:

Disk space check for <update_name> failed. Requested free space was
<###> (in MB).
The Java LiveUpdate session did not complete successfully.
Return code = 246

Where <update_name> is the name of the update that pushes the total size
over the default maximum cache size limit, and <###> is the amount by which
the default has been exceeded.

Details:
If the total size of the updates being applied exceeds the default cache
size limit (a 1GB maximum), the NetBackup LiveUpdate policy fails. The AIX
and HPIA64 NetBackup Server updates by themselves and exceeds the 1GB size
limit. Therefore you must apply the workaround explained below on AIX and
HPIA64 servers to use NetBackup LiveUpdate. NetBackup LiveUpdate policies
can also fail on other platforms if add-on products or extra client binaries
are loaded on the NetBackup Master or Media server.

Workarounds
To resolve or prevent a failed update, take one of the following actions
prior to starting any NetBackup LiveUpdate jobs.

Workaround Option 1:
Add the following line to the /usr/openv/netbackup/nblu.conf file on the
NetBackup Master or Media server that you wish to update:

downloadCacheSize=8192

Workaround Option 2:
Alternatively, you can push the updated configuration file that contains
the fix for this issue from a NetBackup Master Server to the affected
NetBackup Master or Media servers by performing the following steps.

1. Download and install NB_LUA_6.5.3<6-digit number>.tar on a master
server. This requires you to apply the NB_CLT_6.5.3 and NB_6.5.3
updates as well.

2. Run the following command to push the 6.5.3 LUA from the NetBackup
Master server to the affected NetBackup Master or Media servers.
You will be required to re-enter the name and protocol of the
LiveUpdate server you want to use.

update_luagent �ForceReconfig �ClientList <filename>

Where <filename> contains the names of the affected NetBackup
Master or Media servers.
or

update_luagent �ForceReconfig <hardware_type> <operating_system>

See the 6.5 NetBackup Installation Guide for more information about
the update_luagent command.

3. Run the LiveUpdate policy to update the affected NetBackup Master
and Media servers.



Using LiveUpdate to deploy NetBackup Release Update 6.5.3:
---------------------------------------------------------
To use the LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup, you must first ensure that all
NetBackup hosts that you intend to update have the NetBackup LiveUpdate Agent
installed, and that they are configured with the location and protocol that
points to your LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup.

To install NetBackup LiveUpdate Agent on Windows
1. The agent is automatically installed on Windows.
2. The agent needs to be configured for protocol and location of the
LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup.

To install NetBackup LiveUpdate Agent on UNIX
1. From the NetBackup 6.5 Options CD, select "LiveUpdate Agent".
2. When prompted for protocol and location, enter the protocol and location
used by the LiveUpdate Server for NetBackup that has been populated with
the contents of these bundles.

Refer the NetBackup 6.5 Installation Guide for Windows for instructions
on installing the NetBackup LiveUpdate agent, and creating and executing a
NetBackup LiveUpdate policy.

NOTE: The updates contained in the following files are not meant to be
installed manually, and must only be used by a NetBackup LiveUpdate policy.

- NBLU_6.5.3.UNIX_1of2_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.UNIX_2of2_<6 digit number>.zip
- NBLU_6.5.3.WIN_<6 digit number>.zip



Uninstalling NetBackup Release Update 6.5.3:
--------------------------------------------
LiveUpdate for NetBackup does not provide a NetBackup policy method for
uninstalling Release Updates. You must follow this procedure locally
on each NetBackup host that you wish to uninstall.

To uninstall the Release Update from a Windows CLUSTER Environment:

1) Uninstall this Release Update from the nodes of the cluster where the
NetBackup group is inactive. (follow steps 1-2 below)

2) Uninstall this Release Update from the active NetBackup node.
This should be done when the NetBackup system is quiet, for example,
no backups or restores running.

CAUTION:
Do not failover the NetBackup Group until all NetBackup nodes (including
the active NetBackup node) have the Release Update uninstalled.

**Important notice regarding un-installs on Windows**
Only the last Release Update installed on a Windows system
can be un-installed.

1) Close all NetBackup Windows.
Make sure the NetBackup server has no active backups, restores,
duplications, etc., running. If there are NetBackup activities in process,
the Release Update will not install if the file to update is busy.

If a database client is being used, such as Oracle, ensure that the
database services are stopped. Database services can be stopped via the
Control Panel -> Services tool. Repeat this until all databases have been
stopped. These services must be restarted once the patch is successfully
uninstalled.

2) Go to Add/Remove programs dialog box and select the correct release update
to be uninstalled.

--------------------------------------
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.

+ For restores of individual items with Exchange Server or SharePoint Server,
note the following:

- You must be running Windows 2008 or Windows 2003 R2. Information about how
to upgrade Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 to Windows Server 2003 R2
is available from the following Microsoft web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912309

- For Windows 2008, you must enable Services for Network File System under
File Services. See the NetBackup 6.5.3 Documentation Updates for more
information.

+ A new TechNote is available with updated information for using Granular
Recovery with SharePoint Server 2003/2007. This TechNote is available on the
Symantec Support Web site:

http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/305549

+ 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

+ 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.




============================
III. NETBACKUP 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:
-------------------------
+ (ET1320943) FAT32 file systems are not supported on Windows x86 and x64.

+ (ET1268229) The backuptrace.exe executable fails on Windows AMD64 systems.
On AMD64 systems, when using the backuptrace command, add the following
option with any other options that you are using. This ensure that the
registry will not be called and the command will function properly.

-install_path <path> (This is the directory path where NetBackup resides.)

+ Product dependency notification for customers running Microsoft Windows
Vista or Windows 2008 server.

If you are protecting client (or server) systems that are running either
Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 2008 server, you may need to install
Microsoft hot-fix number KB952696. If you are attempting to back up any
protected files that have been encrypted by the operating system, NetBackup
will not be able to back these files up. NetBackup will report that it is
unable to access the encrypted files and the backup will continue with all
of the remaining files.

NOTE: This does not apply to NetBackup encryption. NetBackup encryption
is separate from the file system encryption, meaning NetBackup-encrypted
files will be backed up. In addition, this hot-fix is not needed for any
Windows version prior to Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 2008 server. If
you are running Vista or Server 2008, please refer to KB952696 to see if
this hot-fix is required for your operating system version

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

+ (ET1233823) There is a problem regarding backing up Windows 2008 encrypted
files. This is a Microsoft issue. A NetBackup fix will likely occur in a
future 6.5 release. For now, to avoid this issue, run NetBackup as
Administrator and not as a Backup Operator.

+ ** (ET1220681) This issue applies to all 64- and 32-bit Windows platforms,
using Microsoft System Provider.

When using the Microsoft System Provider, any Instant Recovery snapshot
backups relative to the backup used for restore that are kept online should
remain valid after attempting a Point-in-Time rollback from any of the online
snapshots. However, attempting a Point-in-Time rollback from any of the
online snapshots can cause all of the other online snapshots, taken from the
same volume to become invalid. This issue can occur when the snapshot "shadow
copy device name" is changed after a rollback

To avoid this issue, the user should use CopyBack to restore data from an
online Instant Recovery Snapshot. A fix for this issue will be included in a
future Release Update of NetBackup 6.5.

+ (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


Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues:
------------------------------------------
+ This Release Update Windows installation will set the MaxLogFileSizeKB in
nblog.conf to a value of 51200. The value of MaxLogFileSizeKB will be set
to the new value even if it was changed before the Release Update was
applied.

+ (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.

+ If you are updating a clustered NetBackup server in a VCS configuration,
Symantec recommends that you run the manual patch install.

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

+ When upgrading a media server using NetBackup LiveUpdate in environments
that have master and media servers residing on separate domains, you must
stop tracker.exe on the target media server or the LiveUpdate upgrade will
fail.

To avoid this issue, you must ensure that the tracker.exe is not running on
the media server prior to executing a LiveUpdate upgrade.

+ (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.

+ 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

+ (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.

+ 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


NetBackup Access Control issues:
--------------------------------
+ If you are using NBAC and you may receive the following warning after
installing the Release Update:

"The NetBackup Access Control upgrade failed and must be run manually. Make
sure the Symantec Product Authorization Service is started and then run: \n
<INSTALL_DIR>Program Files\\VERITAS\\NetBackup\\bin\\admincmd\\bpnbaz -Upgrade."

Please open up the install log and search for: NetBackup\bin\admincmd\
bpnbaz.exe" -CheckUpgrade. If you see a message similar to the following,
verify the error code value:

10-10-2008,20:10:16 : ERROR in running NBAC Command : "C:\Program Files\
Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\bpnbaz.exe" -CheckUpgrade Returned error code: 0
10-10-2008,20:10:16 : Action ended 20:10:16: NBAC_Upgrade. Return value 1.

- If the error code is 0 you can ignore this issue altogether.
- If the error code is something other than 0, then there is an issue and you
should run the command manually on the affected system.

+ (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.


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 following application event log message may appear on an Exchange
server during an Exchange granular operation (backup, browse or restore)
and can safely be ignored.
EventID 16384
Description: The remote server does not have locking support. A mount
was requested with locking enabled. The share is being
mounted anyway. Some functionality may not be available.

- 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

- For Windows 2008 the following applies:

- Backups and restores using granular recovery or Mailbox-level backups
and restores may fail with the MAPI logon error x80040115. Please refer
to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site for a solution
to disable IPv6 for MAPI access.

http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/311611

- The following application event log message may appear on a Windows 2008
Exchange server if a user does not have the Active Directory or the User
Name Mapping identity mapping set up and configured using the Services
for NFS properties. This message occurs during an Exchange granular
operation (backup, browse or restore) and can safely be ignored.
EventID 16397
Description: Windows(R) Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
failed a request to connect to Active Directory Domain Services(R)
for Windows user <DOMAIN\USER>. Without the corresponding UNIX
identity of the Windows user, the user cannot access Network File
System (NFS) shared resources. Verify that the Windows user is in
Active Directory Domain Services and has access permissions.

+ (ET1421633) Granular backups of a web application with multiple content
databases may fail. The work around is to back up the Content databases
individually.

+ (ET1421326) SharePoint document names are truncated because of special
characters that cause a restore of the document to fail because it cannot
be found.

+ (ET1174583) An enhancement has been made that adds base NetBackup support for
SQL Server 2008. However, database moves from Snapshot backups taken of
databases that contain file stream data are not supported.

+ 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 issues are specific to SharePoint 2007 support.

- (ET1255700) When restoring a SharePoint WSS 2.0 site where the site is
gone but the database still remains, the site may not be extended after a
restore has completed successfully. In this case, the user must extend
the site using the SharePoint administrator user interface.

- (ET1249811) A redirected restore is not supported with differential
backups in this release.

- Document-level restores will fail if the string "_Granular_" is contained
within the document name. You can restore the document using a full
database restore. To avoid this issue, rename the documents that contain
the string "_Granular_" to a name without the string "_Granular_" prior to
performing the backing up.

+ 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.

+ (ET1278383) Exchange 6.5.2 - LCR/CCR backup support

To ensure that the CCR client attributes are set properly for both nodes in
the cluster, the user needs to update the Exchange client attributes for
each node individually. Changing the attributes for the virtual CCR name
will only affect the active node at the time of change.

+ There is an error in the Veritas NetBackup 6.5.2 Documentation Updates manual
that was delivered with this release. In the NetBackup for SharePoint Portal
Server Updates chapter, page 217, the following bullet is incorrect.

To redirect MOSS 7.0 and WSS 3.0 web applications, specify the destination
web application name (or the URL of the destination site).

The following is the correct version of the bullet.

To redirect MOSS 7.0 and WSS 3.0 web applications, specify the URL of the
destination web application for the Redirect SharePoint Resources option in
the Restore Marked Files dialog box.


Storage-related issues:
-----------------------
+ (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.

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

+ 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.

+ (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,
you need to 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.

+ 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.

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

+ (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.

+ (ET1052487) For SharedDisk on Windows systems, you can use either GUID
Partition Table (GPT) or Master Boot Record (MBR) to format LUNs on Windows
systems that support GPT. GPT allows disks larger than 2 TB in size.

However, NetBackup 6.5.1 and earlier cannot read or write disks that use GPT.
Therefore, if you use both 6.5.1 and earlier and 6.5.2 and later for disk
pool access, all LUNs must be formatted with MBR. MBR disks are limited to
2TB maximum size.

+ (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.

+ (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.

+ (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.

+ (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.


NetBackup user interface issues:
--------------------------------
+ (ET1424582) The Windows Administration Console will crash if the user has a
SAN Client connected to the setup and performs the following steps:

1. Click on Devices node and view the SAN Clients attached to the setup.
2. Then click on Host Properties and view the Master server properties.
3. Windows Administration Console will crash if user performs a Refresh All
operation any time after viewing the Master server properties from
Host Properties.

+ (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.

+ 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.

+ (ET1224679) The NetBackup Administration Console for Windows may crash when
two instances of Administration Console are running on two separate remote
desktop sessions on the same server. This issue rarely occurs and is not
easily reproducible. The issue is not a regression and is outside of the
normal scope of operations. Hence, this issue is planned to be addressed in
a future NetBackup 6.5 Release Update.

+ (ET1238485) The NetBackup Administration Console for Windows may crash if
the user clicks on the Activity Monitor node and then clicks on Media node.
This issue is associated with ET1219769 and a temporary patch has been
applied to prevent the crash. A proper fix for this issue is planned a future
NetBackup 6.5.x Release Update.


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

+ (ET1174736) This release contains a 32-bit Windows memory management
limitation. Windows can only address 4GB of memory. If an attempt is made
to perform a Flashbackup of volumes that are larger than 10TB, that it
requires more than 4GB of memory to store the bitmap that needs to be
created for the restore of single files. To work around this issue,
Symantec recommends that you make smaller volumes or use a UNIX Master
server.

+ (ET1412544) The Windows NTFS file system has a feature called junction
points. A junction point can be set up to provide access to files in a local
directory (similar in function to a symbolic link). For backups of a VMware
virtual machine, NetBackup for VMware does not currently support a junction
point as the snapshot mount point on the VMware backup proxy server. The
snapshot mount point must be a local directory on the proxy server, not a
junction point that refers to a local directory. Support for junction points
as the snapshot mount point on the proxy server will be added in a future
release.

CAUTION: if a junction point is used as the snapshot mount point, the backup
appears to succeed, but the actual files that were backed up may be the wrong
files.

+ (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

+ (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.

+ (ET1259882) NetBackup for VMware does not support a USB drive as the snapshot
mount point on the VMware backup proxy server. This support will be added in
a future release of NetBackup.

+ (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

+ (ET125073) Attempting to restore Bare Metal Restore (BMR) Windows clients
using Broadcom NetXtreme II network adapters that are rebranded by certain
OEM vendors (such as HP NC373i) fails with the following error message.

"Failed to install network driver - check WINBOM."

For more information on how to work around this issue, refer to the following
TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302696

+ 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.

+ (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

+ 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

+ (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.

+ (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

+ (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.

+ A BMR Fast Restore of a Windows client with a single partition fails with the
following error message.

Failed to run X:\BMR\NBU\BIN\BMRRST.EXE - begin

When attempting a BMR restore of Windows clients with a single system or boot
partition, the process could fail during the Finalizing Restore step with the
error message mentioned above:

If you encounter any issues attempting a BMR Fast Restore of a Windows client
with a single partition, please consult with a Symantec Support representative
for further guidance.



General Documentation issues:
-----------------------------
+ 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.

+ (ET1197993) The 6.5 NetBackup Administrator�s Guide, Volume I, incorrectly
states that the Virtual Tape Option is necessary 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 6.5.1 -
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 6.5.1 -
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)

290-974-157 290-974-378 311-836-533

Description:
A "Check WINBOM" error for the NC373i adapter would occur while using an
ISO image that was created from WinPE-based shared resource tree (SRT).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 = ET1289330

Description:
Changes have been added to ensure that the BMR database levels match those
of the NetBackup server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 = ET1282107
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1221889
Titan cases: 311-836-533

Description:
An issue would occur after a BMR restore operation completed on a Windows
system that had Broadcom NetExtreme II NIC hardware and NIC teaming
software installed and configured.

After the BMR restore completed and during the BMR clean-up phase (while
installing Broadcom NetXII NIC drivers), BMR would cause an error message
to appear stating that it failed to install the NIC drivers. However, the
drivers were actually installed correctly. This message appeared ONLY
when the backed-up system had NIC teaming software installed and
configured.

Workaround:
If you encounter this issue, please click, OK, for the pop-up error
messages that may appear and let the BMR clean-up continue with the other
tasks.

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:
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 = ET1318437
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1301899

NetBackup 6.5.2 administration console with a NetBackup 6.5.1 master server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1316255
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1292734
Titan cases: 220-320-996

Description:
A change was made that ensures the NetBackup_Java Administration Console
can display the Activity Monitor when administering a NetBackup 6.5.1
master server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1316257
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1297807
Titan cases: 220-326-939

Description:
A change has been added that ensures the NetBackup-Java Administration
Console can be used to administer (modify or deactivate policies) on
back-level, NetBackup master servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 = ET1319500

Description:
The End-user License Agreement (EULA) has been updated for NetBackup 6.5.3.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 = ET1361367

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

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 = ET1383582
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1377498
Titan cases: 230-581-012 291-068-284

Description:
Optimized duplication would ignore the retention level sent for a
destination copy and would set the expiration time and retention using
values from the source copy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

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 = ET1383258
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1282306
Titan cases: 220-248-543

Description:
Vault's eject mode suspend immediately would fail to suspend media if
duplication was disabled. A fix was added to ensure that, media are
suspended if the mode "suspend now" is chosen.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1383447
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1221135
Titan cases: 281-228-428

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 = ET1384031

Description:
NDMP backup fails with a status 114 error. The ndmpagent log shows the
following message.
"Expected remainder to be 0. Remainder = 512"



Workaround:
If you encounter this issue, set the SIZE_DATA_BUFFERS parameter to 256k.
(There is still a possibility the backup could fail, but it is unlikely.)
Or you can run NDMP local, NDMP 3-way, or NDMP remote to disk.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1375580 ET1384850
Titan cases: 291-019-528 220-375-654

Description:
The bpresolver code did not resolve the Web Application name properly if
it had more than one set of parenthesis in the SharePoint resource name.
The SharePoint-managed dll "SPSWrapperManagedHelper.dll", required a
change to allow double quotes to prefix and suffix a Shared Service
Provider with special characters.

In addition, the SharePoint 2007 document-level restore problem occurred
when the web application name had a parenthesis embedded.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1384026
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1371963
Titan cases: 320-123-885

Description:
NetBackup 6.5.x SQL MPX (multiplexed) restores would hang when the number
of restore stripes was 1.

When restoring a multi-stripe backup with fewer streams than specified
during the backup, the restore would hang. This issue occurred if NUMBUFS
was greater than 1 in the NB-MSSQL batch file.

Workaround:
If you should encounter this issue, set NUMBUFS to 1 NB-MSSQL batch file.
This can be done in BATCHFILE or by selecting the number of buffers as 1
in the Client Options dialog box of the NB-MSSQL user interface.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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

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:

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1278625

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.

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 = ET1383452

Description:
VMWare Consolidated Backup (VCB) 1.5 added support for W2008 as a VMware
proxy, however bpfis would force the snapshot type to VSS. A change was
made to ensure that bpfis does not force the VSS selection for VMWare.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1382599

Description:
The snapshot policy wizard would recommend the obsolete VSS_Transportable

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 = ET1382595

Description:
A Windows Open File Backup (WOFB) policy that has multi-streaming enabled
could give a misleading error message when the snapshot failed due to a

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1385764
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1265226
Titan cases: 240-757-443

Description:
Vault would eject more copies of catalog tapes than what it was
configured to do.

If you used Vault to perform catalog backups, the associated catalog
backup policy was configured to generate two copies, one copy in the
catalog-pool and the other copy in the CatalogBackup pool. If your
intention was to keep the copy in the catalog-pool in the robot and to
offsite the copy in the CatalogBackup pool, you would add only the
CatalogBackup pool in the offsite volume pool of profile eject
configuration.

When Vault ran, it listed both catalog copies in the eject.list and
ejected both copies. However, the Robot Pick List report listed only
the CatalogBackup copy, thus, it was not reporting all of the tapes
that were being ejected.

Description:
The Application Backup setting did not select database backups in
NetBackup 6.5.

Vault profile has enabled attributes filters and an Application backup
filter was added in Backup Type filters. Vault skips application backup
images for any further operations (duplication/original eject).

Description:
The Vault tape batching algorithm was incorrect and caused an
inefficient duplication.

In an environment where images reside on common media or span media and
multiplexing or media sharing is enabled, Vault would create a batch
with overlapping media sets. This caused some drives to be idle while
waiting for a previous batch to free the common media.

Description:
If a policy had a client named more than once with different aliases,
the Policy Execution Manager (PEM) would start both even though only one

Description:
When the BMR boot server is started it tries to register itself with
BMR master server. If the BMR master server is down or the BMR database
is not up it tries to register itself, it gets either a Network Failure
error or a registration failed error.

If registration is not successful then BMR boot server sends a
registration request to the master server every 30 seconds. For each
registration request the BMR boot server produces a memory leak and it
decreases the performance in the machine.

Workaround:
If you encounter this issue do one of the following:

If the BMR master server daemon "bmrd" is down then shut down the BMR
boot server daemon "bmrbd".

OR

If BMR database is not yet configured then run bmrsetupmaster on the
command line interface (CLI) to configure the database and then
re-start the bmrd and bmrbd daemons.

When adding a driver package to a BMR-Windows Client's configuration,
the operation takes a long time. While performing a Prepare To Restore (PTR)
for a BMR client on such a setup, the PTR operation would also take a long
time to complete.

Additional Notes:
The problems described above are due to some unnecessary redundancies in
the BMR database. A fix has been added to make sure that no new unnecessary
redundancies get added to the database, but it does not eliminate the
existing, unnecessary redundancies from the BMR database.

Please contact Symantec Support for help on removing the existing
unnecessary redundancies.

Description:
When attempting to run an Oracle backup on a Master server that is
configured with the Required_Interface setting, bpdbsbora would fail to

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

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).

The duplication manager should process successful backup-only images as

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.

Titan cases: 281-179-782

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:

10:10:23.918 [25766] <2> vnet_cached_gethostbyname: vnet_hosts.c.377:
DNS lookup slow for host: : kermit.frog.com
10:10:24.395 [25766] <2> vnet_cached_gethostbyname: vnet_hosts.c.378:

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

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 = 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

Description:
With the DUPLICATION_SESSION_INTERVAL_MINUTES Lifecycle
parameter set to eight minutes, the duplication would not occur
until after 30 minutes.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145594

Description:
The MAX_KB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB parameter would allow jobs to
be duplicated that exceeded the value entered for this parameter.

For example, if a user had ten 5GB files waiting to be duplicated
and a default configuration was being used, the maximum to be
duplicated is 25GB per duplicated job. Instead, all 50GB would
be duplicated in one job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146636
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1112853
Titan cases: 281-124-171

Description:

Etrack Incident = ET1167180

Description:
If NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) was activated on a Windows system,
NetBackup Enterprise Media Manager (nbemm) would not shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1163707 ET1214679

Description:
In the Activity Monitor user interface, it is common for jobs to display
as "queued". However, it is not clear to a user as to why the job is
in a waiting state. In situations where a user may have hundreds of
queued jobs, it would be beneficial to have a way to see what resources
are in contention.

The Job Display in the NetBackup Administration Console, Activity Monitor
will include a new column that shows the reason why a job is queued and
in a waiting state. In addition, some of the information that is displayed
in the new column is available by using the job details.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145852

Description:
This release contains a new feature that 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 feature enhances the XBSA multiple object restore interface by
enabling it to position bptm/bpdm to the starting offset of an object
within an image. Previously, the XBSA interface would read through the
entire image until the starting offset of the desired object was reached.

This feature is only available through the NBBSAGetMultipleObjects API
for images containing multiple XBSA objects. The image must be
nonmultiplex if it resides on a tape. The XBSA interface will only
position bptm/bpdm if the number of blocks between the current offset
and the starting offset of the object being restored is greater than a
certain number of data blocks. The number of blocks is determined by
bptm/bpdm depending on the type of media that the image is stored on.
Typically the number of data blocks is 90000 for tape and 40000 for disk.
These values may change in future releases.

Etrack Incident = ET1095138
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1075401
Titan cases: 220-099-852

Description:
When using the Oracle templates that NetBackup created, the NB_ORA_SCHED
parameter is not used when the actual RMAN commands are executed.

This happens only for the first or initial subset of channel allocations.
For example, if the database is backed up, followed by the archive logs
and the control file, the NB_ORA_SCHED parameter is not used just for the
database portion of the backup and it is passed for the archive logs and
control file backup.

When the templates are converted to backup scripts, the NB_ORA_SCHED
parameter is present in all three backup steps.

Workaround:
To resolve this issue, convert the template to a script and use the script
in the policy.

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.

In addition, this situation was observed in NetBackup 6.5.1, only when
an Exchange Server storage group name includes a percent (%) character.
To avoid this issue, do not include this character in your storage group
names.

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.

Description:
In the Activity Monitor user interface, it is common for jobs to display
as "queued". However, it is not clear to a user as to why the job is
in a waiting state. In situations where a user may have hundreds of queued
jobs, it would be beneficial to have a way to see what resources are in
contention.

An enhancment has been made to the NetBackup Administration Console's
Activity Monitor job display to include a new column that shows the reason
why a job is queued and in a waiting state. In addition, some of the
information that is displayed in the new column is available by using the
job details.

BMR now supports EMC Power Path configured disks on Win32 Clients.
The support is limited to the co-existence of EMC-PP disk which means
following:
- BMR Backup Agent would capture EMC-PP attributes for the disks
- EMC-PP disks are not used for restore, for example, these disks will
be restricted by default and not allowed to be unrestricted.
- The volume and file system on EMC-PP disks will be intact for
post-recovery.
- The volume and file system on EMC-PP disks can be mapped to
Non-EMC-PP disks.

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 = 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 = ET1135507

Description:
Restoring from a multi-path NDMP backup may hang on a file from the
second or subsequent paths.

This type of backup fails with a restore from an NDMP backup that
included two or more paths, where the first path backed up completely
on one tape, then tape spanning occurred on a subsequent path. The
restore fails if a file from the first path is selected, then a file
that is completely on the second tape is selected.

Workaround:
To avoid this issue, restore files that are all within the same backup
path. If additional files are needed, restore them in a separate job.

Etrack Incident = ET1088494 ET1210316 ET1235036 ET1242051 ET1252575

Description:
This release contains a new feature that enhances the current Snapshot
Client for Exchange Agent so that it supports the backup of an Exchange
2007 passive VSS writer. With Exchange 2007, Microsoft introduced a new
concept for Exchange that included the mirroring (replicating) of Exchange
DB and Logs to either a local location (LCR) or a remote location on
another server (CCR). The only supported backup interface to this
replicated data is by using the new VSS passive writer that is
automatically installed in either of these replication models. This
feature enables a user to select what VSS writer is backed up from the
policy manager. In addition, the client will seamlessly backup the
catalog as if it were a local VSS backup.

A capacity-managed copy of an image can expire before the try_to_keep date
if the longest fixed retention is less than the try_to_keep date.

1. Lifecyle has one backup destination of retention type "capacity
managed" with the "try_to_keep" value set to 1 month and one
duplication of retention type "fixed" with the expiration date set to
1 week.

2. After backup and duplication are completed, such as at lifecycle
complete, the expiration date for "capacity managed" copy is set with
"expiration_date" as the longest "fixed" retention which is "1 week"
and its "try_to_keep" date is set to 1 month.

3. At the end of 1 week, as per the catalog cleanup process, it would
expire the "capacity managed" copy even though its "try_to_keep" date
is set to 1 month (which means, if the volume size is not above the
high water mark (HWM), there is no need to expire the "capacity
managed" copy before "try_to_keep" date i.e. till 1 month).

Etrack Incident = ET1218119

Description:
The nbstlutil -l output should not print blank values.

The nbstlutil -l output would print all the values for Image/Copy and
Fragment records. It was possible to have many fields with no values.
However, the "-l" output is meant for a parsing, and printing those
values as blank reduces the number of fields causing problems when
attempting to parse the output.

To resolve this issue, print "*NULL*" for those NULL (blank) fields
similarly to how bpimagelist does.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1220159
Titan cases: 290-932-689

Description:
Moving from a smaller disk to a larger disk would fail in mklv allocation.

In the case of an AIX 5.3 client OS, if the original client rootvg was
installed on a smaller disk size of about 10GB and later during a restore
the large disk was selected to have install rootvg on it (around 80GB), then
the restore would fail while creating logical volumes on the rootvg volume
group.

Workaround:
Perform the following steps to resolve this problem.
1. This workaround requires you to modify the restore script that is
generated after bmrprep and stored in the BMR master server database.
2. Pull the <client_hex_addr>.restore script from master server using
the bmrc command line interface (CLI)
3. The bmrc CLI syntax is:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrc/bmrc -o pull -r INFO -client <cl_name>
4. The source is:
<client_hex_addr.restore file name> -destination /tmp/foo
5. Open the /tmp/foo file for editing.
6. In the function MkVg(), which creates a rootvg volume group, before
the creation of each logical volume under rootvg (for example, just
before mklv command) write the following two lines.

let LVPartitions=LVPartitions+PPSizeMultiplier-1
let LVPartitions=LVPartitions/PPSizeMultiplier

7. Upload the /tmp/foo file into the master server database using the
bmrc CLI.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bmrc/bmrc -o push -r INFO -client <cl_name>
-source /tmp/foo -destination <client_hex_addr.restore file name>

8. Try to restore the client machine. This should resolve the problem.

Description:
Optimized duplication would not occur if the policy stipulated two
duplications to be performed.

For example, the user configured three storage units: stu1, stu2, stu3
with the intention of creating a lifecycle policy that performs a backup
of stu1. Then the user adds a duplicate to stu2 and then adds a duplicate
to stu3. The policy would perform the duplicates, but would not do so
using Optimized Duplication.

Description:
An SQL password would become inaccessible if the end user's Windows
user ID was changed by the Windows administrator. This issue caused
backups to fail. In addition, the user would have to re-enter the
password in the SQL user interface.

The change that was added provides an informative message that tells
the user to re-enter the SQL password. However, it is still necessary for
the user to re-enter the SQL password as this cannot be retrieved if a
Windows administrator changes the end-user's Windows password.

Additional Notes:
This change fixes the problem addressed in the following TechNote,

a different case already exist, some operations, such as deleting an
SRT, would behave in an ambiguous manner and a wrong operation might be
performed. However, a change has been made that does not allow the
creation of SRTs with the same name (with a different case).

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.

Description:
Some NetBackup services did not stop after issuing a fail-over or offline
command in VCS. In addition, VCS did not attempt to "clean" or "offline"
these services again.

Workaround:
While upgrading to 6.5.2 on the active-node in a clustered environment,
some of the NetBackup services may not stop cleanly and this can cause the
installation to abort.

To resolve this situation in a VCS cluster, perform the following steps.
1. Freeze the corresponding NetBackup group from VCS cluster console.
2. Manually shutdown NetBackup on the active node by calling bpdown.
From the service control manager, verify that all the NetBackup
services are down.
3. Apply the patch.
4. Unfreeze the group manually.

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

Suppose the policy configuration sets the maximum number of snapshots to
three and three snapshots exist. On the next IR backup, NetBackup
deletes an existing snapshot as expected, but the catalog is not updated.
It still shows the non-existent snapshot as the primary copy for that
backup image.

On subsequent IR backups, the excess snapshots are not deleted. Snapshots
accumulate on the NetBackup client.

Workaround:
If you encounter this issue, expire the catalog entry for the non-existent
snapshot, and expire any other excess backup images.

Description:
Vault job would fail with a status 308 under a localized environment,
such as a Japanese (JPN) pack. This issue would occur because a Vault
duplication required an English version of duplicate.log file to monitor
the duplication job progress. Under localized environments, Vault ends up
monitoring a localized duplicate.log file

A change was added to always create and monitor English version of
duplicate.log.

Etrack Incident = ET1216714

Description:
System state restores were not working on Windows 2008 systems. The
restores would not work because files were not being renamed and the
directory size would double. In addition, as the backup rate would begin
to decrease as the size grew. The rate would slow too much and cause
the restore job to take too long.

Etrack Incident = ET1257773
Titan cases: 281-334-212

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

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.

Etrack Incident = ET1256155

Description:
This version of NOM uses version 5.0 of the shared SIG component called
"VRTSWeb". (NOM 6.5 and 6.5.1 use version 4.0.) When a user upgrades
to NOM 6.5.2, the VRTSWeb version is upgraded from version 4.0 to 5.0. If
the user decides to downgrade NOM to an earlier version (6.5 or 6.5.1),
the version of VRTSWeb does not change, it remains at 5.0 because it is
a shared component used by multiple Symantec products. Downgrading
VRTSWeb to an earlier version could break other Symantec products that
would only work with latest version. Thus, after downgrading to 6.5 or
6.5.1, NOM user interface would not work properly, because NOM 6.5 and
6.5.1 does not work with VRTSWeb 5.0.

A change was made to correct this issue.

Etrack Incident = ET1259934

Description:

Etrack Incident = ET1243842 ET1126851 ET1209489 ET1212487 ET1221708 ET1250578

Description:
The release contains an updated nbsu (version 1.2.6) that includes the
following:
- Added the NBU_server_groups, NBU_evtmgr and MM_get_ltid_tables
diagnostic checks.
- Modified the default nbsu behavior to avoid running the bpcoverage
command unless the NB_bpcoverage diagnostic is explicitly specified.
This will improve the performance of this utility when run in an
environment with a large number of backup clients.
- On Solaris, altered the NET_ndd diagnostic to include additional
information.
- Added the -L bpplist command line option to the NBU_bpplist
diagnostic.
- Modified the default nbsu behavior to always collect troubleshooting
diagnostics along with the configuration diagnostics. This will help
guarantee that this utility will not have to be re-run to gather
additional data, but it will increase the time needed to run nbsu.

For additional information about these enhancements, refer to the
following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

Etrack Incident = ET1250926

Description:
A bpbkar32.exe application error (exception) would occur in certain
error situations on Exchange Server snapshot client (VSS) backups or
restores that used the Microsoft System Provider.

Windows would display a console message if this problem occurred. A
bpbkar32.exe process other than the one that caused the exception was
likely to continue running. The user must kill the persistent process.

The exception occurs when there is a failure reading a metadata file
that NetBackup writes on the backup client when taking the snapshot.
This can be caused by a system I/O failure, a user error such as IR
restore in an unsupported configuration, or a prior software failure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1262100

Description:
A change was added to address a issue that caused bpdbm to hang on some

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1262650

Description:
The following debug message, "MSRDbConnection::ReleaseOldestResultSet", is
being erroneously logged at a DebugLevel 1. In NetBackup 6.5.2 this
message is very common and could occur hundreds of times per minute. This
message should really appear only at debug level 5. This issue will cause
the log files to grow very rapidly.

Workaround:
To avoid this issue, set the DebugLevel to 0.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1260960

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.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1264207

Etrack Incident = ET1263185

Description:
There were instances where the parent place holder image had zero for the
stream number instead of -1. The backup and restore user interface would
then display these place holder images as real images to restore from when
in fact they were not real images because the image attribute was 0 and
not 203 (the place holder image).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1266636

Description:
After a successful import and format of IBM6000 LUNs, taking them offline
caused a failure with a provider-specific error.

Workaround:

Description:
Vault was not balancing the batch sizes of duplication jobs when
duplicating from a disk storage unit. When a Vault session duplicates
images from a single Disk Storage unit, with all the images having the
same Retention level, the images are separated into four batches, based
on the number of Read/Write Drives setting in the Vault Profile. The issue
is that the four batches that are created vary greatly in the size of data
that needs to be duplicated for each batch.

Description:
Database backups fail (status 800) when writing to a storage unit group.

If a database policy (for Oracle, SAP, and so on) is configured to write
to a storage unit group, all backups for that policy fail with a status
code 800.

The Activity Monitor reports the following.

"Error nbjm(pid=3588) NBU status: 800, EMM status: SQL query
returned column not found; resource request failed(800)"

Workaround:
To workaround this problem, reconfigure the backup policy to write to an
individual storage unit instead of a storage unit group.

Description:
Remapping a VxVM encapsulated root disk on Solaris that originally
contained two copy mirror volumes to one disk to break the mirrors
causes the root volume ("rootvol") and swap volume ("swapvol") to
have the wrong use_type field. It is incorrectly being set to "fsgen".
This causes the machine to fail to boot after the restoration has
completed because of the perceived absence of a root volume.

Workaround:
To resolve this issue, perform the following procedure:

1) On the master server, after running Prepare To Restore, run the
following:
bmrs -o query -r database -t restoreconfigfile
2) Note the name of the <hex_address>.restore file name for the
client from the output
3) Enter the following:
bmrc -o pull -r info -client <client> -source
<hex_address>.restore -dest /tmp/client.restore
4) Edit /tmp/client.restore and find shell script code for
"rootvol" and "swapvol". Once you find the entries for
creating those volumes, search for use_type for each and
change "fsgen" in each to "root" and "swap" respectively.
5) Enter the following:
bmrc -o push -r info -c client -source /tmp/client.restore
-dest <hex_address>.restore
6) Continue with a normal restoration.

Additional Notes:
After you install this Release Update, you must run a new backup
on the client, or use Point-In-Time retrieval for that client
before this fix is effective. This includes retrieving the

the NetBackup image expires. This issue only happens when
images are retained for 30 days or more.

The problem is caused when some reference files are removed
from the master server during cleanup. Without these files
NetBackup cannot remove the snapshots from the secondary.

Workaround:
Retentions that are less than 30 days do not have this issue.

Description:
Expired media which was NOT originally in a scratch pool is
automatically moved to a scratch pool.

Regardless of its original volume pool (PrevPoolName) or its
original pool type, the media manager moves the expired media into a
scratch pool. This behavior is okay as long as the expired media was
originally in a scratch pool. But the media manager should leave the
expired media in the current volume pool if it was not originally in a
scratch pool as well as NetBackup 6.0.

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.

Description:
Some servants in the NetBackup Service Layer (NBSL) were not

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.

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.
