--------------------------------------
Current New Features and Enhancements:
--------------------------------------
This section contains a comprehensive list of the new UNIX and Windows features
and enhancements that are being added to NetBackup in this Release Update. For
more information about any new feature contained in this release, refer to the
NetBackup 6.5.4 Documentation Updates document contained in the following
TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318350

Some new features mentioned in the list below are documented in a stand-alone
TechNote. In those instances, the TechNote number is supplied in the list.

+  BMR no longer requires a separate license. The license is embedded in the
  NetBackup server license.

+  New Database Agent features and enhancements

  - NetBackup for Enterprise Vault agent
    The new NetBackup for Enterprise Vault agent greatly simplifies data
    protection for the Enterprise Vault servers. This new agent protects all
    of the Enterprise Vault partitions and their associated databases. Because
    the agent leverages snapshot technology, the vault is in a read-only
    backup-mode for the shortest time possible: just long enough to complete
    a snapshot. A backup like this is completely coordinated with Enterprise
    Vault using the agent; no scripts or manipulating registry settings.

    The agent supports disaster recovery of a partition and databases.
    Moreover, it also supports recovery of individual files within a
    partition. Lastly, the agent will automatically discover the various
    servers and components within your Enterprise Vault environment that
    needs protection.

    For more information about this new NetBackup agent, refer to the
    following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318349

    In addition to the NetBackup 6.5.4 Enterprise Vault agent, the following
    white papers are available:
    -  For information on how to protect Enterprise Vault 8.0 entities using
       Enterprise Vault Agent 6.5.4 and SQL Agent 6.5.4, you can refer to the
       following white paper on the Symantec Support Web site:
          http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/323945

    -  For information on the NetBackup Enterprise Vault Migrator, you can
       refer to the following white paper on the Symantec Support Web site:
          http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/324305

  - NetBackup for Hyper-V agent
    The new NetBackup for Hyper-V agent leverages the same granular
    recovery technology used in the NetBackup for VMware agent. The agent
    protects virtual machines (VM) by backing up the virtual hard drive
    (VHD) images. From the image backup, you can restore the entire VM or
    individual files within the VM. This is done without any VHD staging;
    only the files you select are recovered from tape. Policy setup is
    also simplified by the automatic detection of all VMs within the
    Hyper-V server. Supports Windows 2008 Hyper-V servers.

    For more information about this new NetBackup agent, refer to the
    following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318358

  - Granular Recovery for Active Directory
    The new NetBackup for Active Directory agent supports granular recovery
    of most AD objects, including:
    - User Accounts
    - Organizational Units
    - Printers
    - Individual attribute values, like names, addresses, IDs, etc.
    - And others

    This is available for Windows Server 2003 & 2008 AD servers by simply
    including Windows System State in the backup.

+  NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Server
  The NetBackup for Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator's Guide was updated
  to include all new features that were added since NetBackup 6.5.

  See http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/320793

  - Instant recovery log truncation option
  - Granular cataloging option

  To use this new feature in 6.5.4, both the media server and the Exchange
  clients need to be at the same NetBackup version. If you upgrade the media
  server to NetBackup 6.5.4, you must also upgrade your clients to version
  NetBackup 6.5.4.

  In addition, this release contains the following configuration changes for
  Exchange cluster environments:
  - To perform Continuous Cluster Replication (CCR) backups of the passive VSS
    writer, you no longer need to set the "Enable Remote Streaming Backup"
    registration key.
  - For Exchange 2007 SP1 or later, you no longer need to configure the
    NetBackup Client Service to run as domain admin.

+  NetBackup for Microsoft SharePoint Server
  - The NetBackup for Microsoft SharePoint Server Administrator's Guide has
    been updated to include all new features that were added since
    NetBackup 6.5 GA.

        See http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318354

      - To use the new SharePoint features in 6.5.4, both the media server
        and SharePoint clients need to be at the same NetBackup version. If you
        upgrade the media server to NetBackup 6.5.4, you must also upgrade your
        clients to version 6.5.4.
      - The agent now validates user credentials entered in the NetBackup
        Administration Console.
      - You can now browse for SharePoint objects when you create a backup
        policy.
      - The "AllWebs" directive in the file list selection backs up all Web
        Applications.  This directive is only supported for NetBackup 6.5.4
        and later.

  - Granular restores can be redirected to a file system.

  - Improved SharePoint Granular Recovery
    In NetBackup 6.5.4, the NetBackup for SharePoint agent offers
    additional, more comprehensive granular recovery capabilities, that
    includes the following:
    - Sites and sub-sites
    - Entire lists, like calendars, tasks, links, discussions, and others
    - Any item(s) from a list
    - Any version of a file
    - Recover files to a folder on disk

    Also, several simplifications have been made in configuring a granular
    recovery policy. This new feature is supported for SharePoint 2003 & 2007,
    and WSS 2.0 & 3.0.

+  Enhanced NetBackup clustering support for Snapshot Client
  This release contains enhancements that improve the support of NetBackup
  Snapshot Client Storage Foundation (SF) snapshot methods in a cluster
  environment. Some of the SF snapshot methods that have been improved are:
  VxVM, FlashSnap, VxFS Checkpoint, and VVR.


+  The following new features have been added in the NetBackup for VMware.
  For more information about these new features, refer to the following
  TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site:

     See http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318357
   
  - VMware "hotadd" transport mode
    A new VMware feature called the "hotadd" transport mode allows you to run
    the VMware backup proxy server in a virtual machine. The "hotadd" transport
    mode for a backup proxy server in a virtual machine allows the required
    virtual disks to be made dynamically visible to the backup proxy server.
    This feature requires ESX 3.5 Update 2 or later and VCB 1.5. For
    instructions on the hotadd transport mode and on installing the backup
    proxy server in a VMware virtual machine, refer to your VMware
    documentation.
   
    The only configuration requirement in NetBackup is to select "5-hotadd"
    as the transfer type in the Snapshot Client Options dialog in the
    NetBackup policy.

  - VMware physical Raw Device Mapping integration with Snapshot Client
    VMware offers a technology called raw device mapping (RDM). This technology
    allows a virtual machine (VM) to access physical disks directly. One of the
    benefits of RDM is that it enables a VM to use large storage devices such
    as disk arrays. This feature provides a NetBackup Snapshot Client Alternate
    Client backup solution that protects the data on VMware RDM storage.

  - The NetBackup server requires logon credentials to access your VMware
    ESX server or VMware VirtualCenter. This NetBackup 6.5.4 release adds the
    ability to verify that the credentials you have entered are valid for the
    server. The NetBackup Add Virtual Machine Server dialog now contains a
    Validate Credentials check box.

  - Added an option to disable virtual machine quiesce before the snapshot.
    By default, I/O on the virtual machine is quiesced before NetBackup creates
    the snapshot. In rare circumstances, if you have a database running on the
    virtual machine, it may be necessary to create the snapshot without
    performing the quiesce. This option must be used with care, and is not
    recommended for most VMware environments.

+  Backup Exec Tape Reader now supports BE 11/11d
  This feature enables customers to import and restore their BE 11 & BE 11d
  backup images into the NetBackup environment. Customers who want to
  migrate from BE to NetBackup will likely benefit from this feature.


+  NetBackup User Interfaces Features and Enhancements
  - NetBackup Administration Console: Configurable auto-logoff
    NetBackup now provides the option for administrators to configure the
    administration console to automatically log off users after a
    specified period of inactivity. They are required to enter their
    credentials again before further administering the product. This
    feature is off by default.

  - NetBackup Administration Console: Configurable Login Banner
    A login banner can be configured to appear for users while logging in.
    Customers who require an acceptance of a corporate security or legal
    statement for administrators to proceed with login would use this
    feature. Another common use is for company branding or informational
    messages, where users are presented with the message but not required
    to accept or act on the communication.


+  OST Enhancements
  - OpenStorage Direct Copy to Tape
    Many intelligent disk appliances attach tape libraries on the back-end
    and create tape copies unbeknownst to NetBackup. The OpenStorage API has
    been extended to enable data protection applications to direct data
    movement from disk to tape. The user, through NetBackup, chooses which
    backup images are copied to tape and also controls the tape format.

    The following list explains some of the benefits of this feature:
    - Eliminates I/O through the media server
    - NetBackup's catalog is aware of all backup copies
    - Enables you to apply different retention periods for copies
    - NetBackup aware tape format - the tapes can be transported to a
      different library and read by NetBackup.

   For more information about this feature, see the NetBackup Shared Storage
   Guide for release 6.5.4 at the following URL:

       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318351

  - OpenStorage Optimized Synthetic backups
    The OpenStorage Optimized Synthetic backup method requires no data
    movement across the network from the storage server to the media
    server. The optimized, synthetic backup method constructs the synthetic
    image by using calls from the media server to the storage server. The
    media server tells the storage server which full and incremental images
    to use to create the synthetic backup. Then, the synthetic backup is
    constructed directly on the storage server.

    (In previous releases, the synthetic backup method was constructed on
    the media server. Backups were moved across the network from the
    storage server to the media server and constructed (or synthesized)
    into one image. The synthetic image was then moved back to the storage
    server. The process was lengthy and caused additional network traffic.)

    For more information, see the NetBackup Shared Storage Guide for
    release 6.5.4 at the following URL:

       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318351

  - OpenStorage versioning solution
    It is possible for a number of potential version incompatibilities to
    arise, because different versions between the various components exist
    in the stack. This Release Update contains a versioning solution that
    permits interoperability across the OST core library and the OST plug-in.
    These changes enable the OST core library to work with different
    versioned libraries and plug-ins can determine which versions to support.

  - Support NetApp P3 conversion to OST and metadata support
    This feature provides enhanced functionality in the OpenStorage program.
    Vendors, such as NetApp, can leverage existing benefits of the OST
    program.  In addition, they can develop and deliver OST-specific feature
    sets like optimized duplication or virtual synthetics without regard to\
    the NetBackup release schedule.

    Vendors such as these currently parse an OST image name to identify the
    NetBackup-specific details such as copy and fragment numbers. This
    feature adds an additional (imageset) structure to an OST image's
    definition that enables NetBackup to give plug-in vendors a programmatic
    way to connect OST images into a logical hierarchy.

  - This feature also supports Hot Catalog backup and restore operations to
    OpenStorage Disk Pools.


+  Storage Lifecycle Policy Features and Enhancements

  - Network Optimized Duplication
    This feature optimizes duplication traffic by selecting the same Media
    server for both Source and Destination when possible. The result is that
    no data is sent over the network. This gives the user better control of
    image movement over the storage network and it eliminates LAN usage
    during a duplication operation.

  - Hierarchical duplication (Dup from Copy X)
    This feature provides the ability to specify, in a Storage Lifecycle
    Policy, a hierarchy the represents a cascaded duplication plan. Each
    duplication step specifies which storage device is used as the source.
    The typical use case is to drive off-host duplication. This enables a
    configuration that clearly separates the duplication overhead from the
    backup processes.

  - Storage Lifecycle Policy (SLP) performance improvements with media
    contention during duplication jobs

    New in 6.5.4:  SLP Media Set Batching for duplicating backup images
    from a tape device (or VTL) to some other device.

    A SLP collects batches of related backup images and includes the images
    in a series of duplication jobs.  How these images are selected to create
    each batch (each duplication job), can significantly improve or diminish
    the efficiency (performance) of the duplication jobs.  If multiple
    duplication jobs are created such that they need to read from the same
    set of tapes, the contention for media can seriously diminish product
    performance.

    In previous NetBackup versions, the SLP created a duplication job for a
    batch of backup images if the images all started on the same tape.  The
    parameters in the LIFECYCLE_PARAMETERS file determined how large the batch
    file could become.  If the parameters in the LIFECYCLE_PARAMETERS were set
    sufficiently large, then all of the images that started on a given tape
    were included in a single batch (duplication job).  If those parameters
    were not large enough to include all images that started on a given tape,
    then multiple duplication jobs were created to copy the images from the
    tape. These multiple duplication jobs were in contention for the same set
    of media. Symantec advised administrators to set the parameters in the
    LIFECYCLE_PARAMETERS file large enough to include all images that started on
    a given tape.

    However, even if administrators followed this advice, the last image on a
    tape (or the last images if the backups were multiplexed) would span to a
    second tape, causing contention for the second tape.  This occurred because
    a subsequent duplication job had tried to duplicate all images that started
    on the second tape.

    In NetBackup 6.5.4, the SLP looks beyond a single tape when forming each
    batch of images (each duplication job).  In 6.5.4, the SLP collects all
    images that start on the first tape, but will continue on to subsequent
    tapes, as images continue to span from tape to tape.  When an image spans
    to a second tape, the SLP adds the images that start on the second tape to
    the batch that will form the next duplication job.  This continues as
    images span tapes, until one of the parameters in the LIFECYCLE_PARAMETERS
    file causes the SLP to stop adding images. At that point, the duplication
    job is submitted (requested).

    The administrator should know the following information about configuring
    these parameters.

    Keep in mind that the goal is to allow the duplication jobs to become as
    large as possible for more efficient duplication.  Especially when the
    original backup images are multiplexed on tape, duplication performs best
    when one large duplication job can stream "all" images from a connected set
    of tapes to secondary storage.  Administrators are often inclined to split
    this set of tapes into multiple duplication jobs, so that they can keep
    multiple destination drives spinning.  Consider making the number of drives
    that write duplicate copies equal to the number of drives that write the
    original backup images.  This allows batches of connected images to stay
    together in complete and efficient duplication jobs.

    A. If duplication jobs are to run at the same time as backup jobs, or if
       you need enough concurrent duplication jobs to keep all of the
       destination tape drives spinning (see the previous paragraph), then one
       of the following parameters must be used to limit the size of the
       duplication jobs:
       - MAX_MINUTES_TIL_FORCE_SMALL_DUPLICATION_JOB
       - MIN_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION
       - MAX_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION

    B. Alternatively, the user can disable SLP duplication during the backup
       window.  This lets the duplication jobs run after the product has stopped
       writing backups to the source media, thereby further reducing contention
       for the source media.  This can improve the performance of duplication
       itself, though there may be idle time on the devices between the backup
       window and the time that duplications are allowed to begin.

       In either case, to further reduce media contention, assign each SLP to a
       different Volume Pool for any copy that will be used as the source copy
       for subsequent duplication jobs.  To separate the source tapes in this
       way avoids having multiple SLPs trying to read from the same source tape
       pool.

+  Support for HP-UX 11iv3 persistent DSFs:
  NetBackup 6.5.4 includes support for HPUX 11iv3 persistent device special
  files (DSF) for tape drives and robotic tape libraries.

  The installation of the NetBackup 6.5.4 patch makes no device path changes
  on existing NetBackup installation. The NetBackup administrator must change
  device paths on existing installations. See "How to upgrade to 11iv3 new
  persistent DSFs" below for more information on transitioning to the new DSFs.

  If your system is a new NetBackup installation and you have not previously
  configured the legacy HP device paths, you do not need to use the upgrade
  section below. NetBackup device discovery will correctly configure your
  devices using the new HP-UX persistent DSFs.

  You do not have to use persistent DSFs. However, beginning with this patch,
  NetBackup device discovery finds only persistent DSFs. To use legacy device
  files on new NetBackup installations, you must configure them manually.

  Also, you can use persistent DSFs on some HP-UX servers and legacy device
  files on others.

  For information about how to create the persistent DSFs, see "To configure
  HP 11iV3 devices after connecting devices to the system" below.

  About Persistent DSFs:
  Persistent DSFs for tape drives have a tape path form of
  /dev/rtape/tape#_BESTnb.  NetBackup only supports the Berkeley no-rewind
  device paths. NetBackup also requires pass-through paths for all tape drives.

  In HP 11iv3, these tape pass-through paths are of the following form:
      /dev/pt/pt_tape#
  The # represents the instance number that matches the number in the
  /dev/rtape/tape#_BESTnb device file or retrieved from the ioscan output.

  These pass-through paths are created automatically for all tape defined tape
  drives that have valid /dev/rtape paths. Any NetBackup auto discovery command
  or the /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/scan command automatically creates these
  pass-through paths. For robotics, NetBackup supports the HP-UX eschgr driver
  paths of the form /dev/rchgr/autoch#.

  NetBackup also supports the use of the IBM atdd tape driver on HP-UX 11iv3.
  There is a minimum atdd driver level required. Please see the NetBackup
  Hardware Compatibility List for more IBM attd driver levels supported and
  atdd configuration information:
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/284599
  Also see the NetBackup OS compatibility list for the minimum OS patch level
  required to run on HP-UX:
     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/325328

  To create HP-UX 11iV3 device files after connecting devices to the system:
  Use one of the following procedures to create the DSF files. Create DSFs on
  every HP-UX 11iV3 server on which you want to use the new persistent DSFs. If
  you do not create persistent DSFs, you must create legacy device files and
  then configure devices manually in NetBackup.

  NetBackup device discovery discovers these files when you configure devices
  in NetBackup.

  To create the tape devices files automatically:
  - Enter one of the following commands as root:
        For estape (tape entries): insf - d estape
        For eschgr (autoch entries): insf - d eschgr
        For IBM atdd driver controlled tape drive: insf - d atdd

  - Adding the -e option to these command lines refreshes the device path for
    all devices using the given driver. For example, "insf - d estape - e"
    refreshes all estape controlled tape drives.
  For more information about using the HP-UX insf command, see the man page.

  To manually create passthru paths for tape drives:
  - Enter the following command (# is the instance number of the device from
    the ioscan output):
        mksf - P - C tape - I #
    For more information about using the HP-UX mksf command, see the man page.

  How to upgrade to 11iv3 new persistent DSFs
  -------------------------------------------
  To upgrade from the legacy DSFs to the new DSFs:

  1. Add the following entry to the /usr/openv/volmgr/vm.conf file (the syntax
     must be as specified in all capital letters):
        AUTO_PATH_CORRECTION=YES

  2. After adding the entry to the vm.conf file and with no current jobs running
     on the media server, run the following command:  
        /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/stopltid

  3. Wait a few minutes for the service to stop, then restart ltid by running
     the following command:
        /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/ltid
       
  You can also start and stop the device service by using the NetBackup
  Administration Console.

  After the services are all restarted, you should be able to see that the tape
  paths and robotic paths were updated to the new persistent device paths.

  After the services are started and device paths updated, you can (but do not
  have to) remove the AUTO_PATH_CORRECTION=YES entry from the vm.conf file can
  be removed. If you roll back to a previous NetBackup 6.5.x version, the
  AUTO_PATH_CORRECTION=YES entry in the vm.conf file will cause the device
  files to be automatically re-configured using the legacy DSF's when ltid
  restarts on the older patch version.

  If you ran device discovery before reading this information, the new DSF
  paths were added to the configuration but the old legacy path(s) will still
  be configured in the device database as alternate paths. Because you should
  only be running the legacy paths or the new paths but not both, on restart
  if ltid finds a mixed path configuration on the media server it automatically
  runs AUTO_PATH_CORRECTION, which uses all the new DSFs and purge the legacy
  DSF's from your NetBackup configuration for the media server.

  To save the old paths, you can use tpconfig to DISABLE to old paths but keep
  their data in the device configuration before restarting ltid.


+  NOM Features and Enhancements

+  NOM Features and Enhancements

  - Tree view roll-up for multi-part jobs
    For multi-part jobs - like those from storage lifecycle policies, Vault,
    application and multi-streamed backups - users can choose whether to show
    all jobs or only the top level, parent job in the NOM Job Monitor. When
    viewing only parent jobs, a tree structure is presented with the overall
    jobs status in the top node. Users are then able to expand the tree to
    drill into the individual child jobs and related details within.

  - NOM Integration with Symantec Threatcon
    Symantec Threatcon is a measurement of the global threat exposure. NOM
    now displays the Threatcon graphic and threat level so that NetBackup
    administrators can determine whether any action is required in the
    protection environment. If an administrator does not spend time actively
    monitoring the environment, NOM also offers a Threatcon alert for
    notification when a user-specified threat level is met.

  - Read-only NOM access
    A built-in role for read-only access to NOM. The read-only user can
    monitor all operations, but not take any action against the NetBackup
    environment (up and down drives or services, start or stop jobs, and so
    forth). Daily monitoring and troubleshooting activities can be assigned
    to the operations team without introducing the risk of configuration
    updates or NetBackup actions that impact backup or recovery activities.

  - NOM CSV report export
    NOM reports can now be emailed in CSV format. Some of the benefits
    users expect from this feature include the ability to analyze the data
    outside of the NOM tool, correlate with other data sets and preserve
    the data for historical reference and analysis.

  - NOM performance/scalability improvements
    NOM now provides visibility and a single-point-of-control across the
    entire NetBackup environment. With this release, a single NOM server
    can support up to 100 master servers and 150,000 jobs per day. Also,
    additional infrastructure optimizations provide faster and more
    predictable User Interface response times.

  - Virtual Client Summary report
    A new report called Virtual Client Summary report has been added in
    NOM 6.5.4. This report shows details of all virtual clients of a
    NetBackup Master Server. Using this report, you can determine whether
    these virtual clients were backed up by NetBackup or not.

  - Representation of Storage Unit Lifecycle Policy hierarchy
    In NetBackup 6.5.4, Storage Unit Lifecycle Policy feature has been
    enhanced so that you can add storage destinations in a hierarchical
    manner. For example, a backup storage destination can have a
    duplication storage destination, which can further have multiple
    duplication destinations. NOM 6.5.4 has been enhanced to represent
    this Storage Unit Lifecycle Policy hierarchy in a tree view, as it is
    managed in NetBackup.

  - Improvement in database upgrade process
    The upgrade process has now been improved, to avoid any hassles because
    of database upgrade taking long hours. In NOM 6.5.4, the database is
    upgraded in two stages. The first part of the database, which comprises
    data other than Jobs and Media and is smaller in size, is upgraded while
    NOM is being upgraded to 6.5.4. The bigger part of the database
    comprises Job and Media data, which is upgraded after the NOM 6.5.4
    upgrade is complete. You can work in the NOM console while this data is
    being upgraded in the background. In addition, you can view the database
    upgrade status using the NOM console.

  - Enhancements in Monitoring section
    The Monitoring section has been enhanced in terms of usability. The
    Master Server details page has been updated to clearly state the
    connection status of all monitors as Connected, Partially Connected,
    and Not Connected. In addition, you can view the root cause for a
    connection failure.

  - Few enhancements in alerting functionality
    For a hung job alert, you can now configure NOM to ignore the time for
    which a job is in a queued state. You can also configure the severity
    for an email/trap that is sent when an alert is cleared.

  - Support for new SNMP versions
    NOM now supports the following SNMP versions:
     - SNMPv1
     - SNMPv3


+  New Tools and Supportability

  - NBCC utility
    The NBCC utility uses the output from various OS and NetBackup commands
    to analyze the consistency state of the NetBackup configuration and
    database/catalogs as they relate to tape media. If inconsistencies are
    detected, NBCC consolidates and packages the resulting data into a bundle
    that can be sent to Symantec Tech Support for analysis.

 - NBCCR utility
    The NBCCR utility processes database/catalog repair actions as defined
    in a special file generated by and under the guidance of Symantec Tech
    Support. This file is created as part of the analysis of the data
    collected by NBCC and any site specific situations.



----------------------------------------------
NetBackup 6.5.3 New Features and Enhancements:
----------------------------------------------
The following features and enhancements were introduced in NetBackup 6.5.3. For
more information about any of the features introduced in that release, refer to
the NetBackup 6.5.3 Documentation Updates document contained in the following
TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.  

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

+  NetBackup Exchange Granular Recovery

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

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

  The following parameters were added since 6.5.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     Default:  8 gigabytes.  Syntax:  MIN_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB 8

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

       Syntax:  MAX_GB_SIZE_PER_DUPLICATION_JOB 25

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  - The new Snapshot destination type is available when the Snapshot Client
    option is installed.
  - The Alternate read server selection is available only for duplication

    destinations.
  - The Preserve multiplexing option is available for multiplexed source
    images.

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

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

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

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

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

+  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 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.
     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

  -  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.


-------------------------
End-of-Life Notifications
-------------------------
+  The following is a list of platforms that will no longer be supported at
  the next major release of NetBackup.
  - Solaris 9 master and media server
  - HP-UX PA-RISC master server (Support will continue for an HP-UX PA-RISC
    client and the media server.)
  - Windows 2000 client
    - Exchange 5.x and Exchange 2000
    - SharePoint 2001

+  SharedDisk EOL - A decision has been made to EOL SharedDisk.

  SharedDisk was proven to be exceptionally sensitive to disk firmware and
  Operating S changes. These dependencies prevented it from being widely
  adopted and too difficult to proliferate.

  NetBackup 6.5.4 will be the last version of NetBackup that includes the
  SharedDisk product. SharedDisk will be unavailable in NetBackup 7.0.

  The End-of-Support Life (EOSL) for NetBackup 6.x is October 3, 2012. This date
  represents the end of partial support. The End-of-Standard Support (EOSS) is
  30 months after the GA date of the next major release of NetBackup.

  Customers who had planned to use SharedDisk should consider the following
  alternatives:

     * PureDisk Deduplication Option
     * OpenStorage
     * AdvancedDisk with standalone disk or NFS
     * AdvancedDisk with Veritas Storage Foundation CFS

  If you have any questions about SharedDisk EOL, please contact Paul Sustman
  or Alex Davies directly.


+  NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup EOL - NetApp recently announced EOL of
  SnapVault for NetBackup.

  This announcement, affects NetBackup customers using this joint solution.
  NetBackup 6.5.4 is the last version of NetBackup that includes the support
  for NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup product (internally referenced as "P3").
  NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup will not be available in NetBackup 7.0.

  The NetBackup EOSL for NetBackup 6.x is October 3, 2012. This date represents
  the end of partial support. The EOSS is 30 months after the GA date of the
  next major release of NetBackup.

  Because NetApp is not offering a migration path, NetBackup customers who use
  NetApp storage and who use NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup should consider the
  following alternatives:

     * VTL
     * OpenStorage
     * AdvancedDisk with standalone disk or NFS

  The EOSL notice from NetApp to a mutual NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup
  customer is included below:

  For your information and planning, this notice is meant to inform you about
  changes that affect the availability and support of the NetApp SnapVault for
  NetBackup solution jointly developed with Symantec Corporation.

  SnapVault for NetBackup is a storage-optimized solution that was developed by
  NetApp and Symantec in a joint effort to protect NetBackup clients using
  SnapVault.

  The NetApp SnapVault for NetBackup solution will not be offered or supported
  for use with the next major release of Data ONTAP. All existing customers
  that use SnapVault for NetBackup with either Data ONTAP 7.2.x or 7.3.x will
  continue to be supported by NetApp.

  Symantec will continue to support the solution as long as NetBackup 6.5.x is
  supported. The contents of SnapVault destination volumes that contain
  NetBackup client backups will not be available for backup, restore, or image
  management tasks if used with the next major release of Data ONTAP.

  Field sales and channel partners should inform and prepare all SnapVault for
  NetBackup customers who might be affected by the end of availability outlined
  in this bulletin. In particular, the field and partners need to understand
  and communicate the NetApp support policy for support.

  There is no migration path for SnapVault for NetBackup. Please contact your
  NetApp sales or channel partner representative for assistance in
  transitioning to an alternative solution.

  Service and Support

  Please note that although we are announcing the end of availability of this
  product, NetApp will continue to support it for a limited time. NetApp will
  continue to provide software support for SnapVault for NetBackup per standard
  support policies as described in this bulletin.

  SnapVault for NetBackup will continue to be supported for five years from end
  of availability or until December 1, 2013. NetApp will continue to develop
  and provide bug fixes per NetApp support policies. NetApp will continue to
  support the software in this limited manner until the expiration of the
  five-year end-of-support period.

  If you would like to receive technical assistance for this release or any
  other NetApp product, download software, manage your service contracts, view
  your open cases, open an RMA and more, go to the NOW site at NOW End of
  Availability Site.




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

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


Platform-specific issues:
-------------------------
+  NetBackup could fail on systems running AIX and an older versions of the
  C++ run-time libraries. IBM has released xlC rte 9.0.0.3 C++ Runtime
  Environment Components for AIX. Symantec recommends that you download and
  install the latest C++ run-time library and then reboot your server. For
  more information about this issue and fix, refer to the following TechNote
  on the Symantec Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/292450

+  NetBackup 6.5.4 contains three files (NBCC.exe, NBCCR.exe, nbsu.exe) that
  have invalid digital signatures. These signatures will be corrected in the
  next release of NetBackup.

+  (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

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

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

+  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 fails.  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



Installation, upgrade, and cluster issues:
------------------------------------------
+  (ET1595854) When you uninstall NetBackup from a VCS cluster, the VCS Type is
  not deleted. If you reinstall NetBackup to the same location, you are not
  able to run NetBackup.

  To avoid this problem, use the following procedure to uninstall NetBackup
  from a VCS cluster.

    Note: Step 1 applies only to UNIX systems. Steps 2-9 apply to UNIX and
          Windows systems.

  To uninstall NetBackup from a VCS cluster:
  1) If it exists, on UNIX systems, remove the following file from the active
       node: /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/cluster/frozen
  2) Enter the following command to take the NetBackup resource offline:
       hares -offline <resource name> -sys <active node>
  3) After ensuring that all NetBackup processes and services are down, delete
       all NetBackup data from the shared disk.
  4) Enter the following command to take the NetBackup group offline:
       hagrp -offline <group name> -sys <active node>
  5) Enter the following command to change the VCS configuration to R/W mode:
       haconf -makerw
  6) Enter the following command to delete the NetBackup group:
       hagrp -delete <group name>
  7) Enter the following command to delete the NetBackup resource type:
       hatype -delete NetBackup
  8) Enter the following command to change the VCS configuration back to R/O
     mode:
       haconf -dump -makero
  9) Uninstall NetBackup from all other nodes in the cluster.

+  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

+  (ET1602744/ET1602745) Unable to configure AT after an upgrade to 4.3.42.0.

  After upgrading VRTSat to a newer version, an attempt to reconfigure VxAT
  using the /opt/VRTS/install/installat -configure command failed.

  Workaround:
  To resolve this issue, remove "/opt/VRTS/bin/installat" and try to reconfigure
  VxAT again using <Location of ICSInstaller>/authentication/installat.

+  (ET1633604) VRTSpbx is not patched with the newer version included in
  NetBackup 6.5.4 package

  After installing SF 5.0MP3 and NetBackup 6.5 on a NetBackup master and mdeia
  server, and then upgrading to NetBackup 6.5.4, the VRTSpbx version may not
  update to the version packaged with 6.5.4.

+  (ET1597077) Receive a different VRTSpbx version by using different commands.

  It is possible for the the NetBackup patch installation to fail if the
  Storage Foundation (SF) 5.0MP3 is installed before NetBackup 6.5 followed by
  6.5.4 if the SF 5.0MP3 VRTSpbx version is newer than the VRTSpbx version that
  is packaged with NetBackup 6.5.4.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+  (ET1600692) While installing NetBackup in a cluster and making it Highly
  Available (HA), if you provide a fully qualified host name (FQHN) when
  asked for Virtual name, problems may occur and HA is not successful. You
  should not provide a fully qualified name during the configuration.  The
  NetBackup High Availability Administrator's Guide for UNIX, Windows, and
  Linux will be changed at the next major release of NetBackup to reflect
  this known issue.

+  (ET1651766) If you have upgraded NetBackup 6.5 to NetBackup 6.5.4 on an
  x86 system running Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4, please shut down
  all of the running NetBackup processes before you attempt to uninstall.
  Otherwise it can cause an unclean uninstallation which can result in
  uncertain NetBackup behavior.  

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



NetBackup Database Agent issues:
--------------------------------

+  The following items pertain to the new Exchange Granular Recovery feature
  for this release.

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

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

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

  - Windows 2008 is also supported for Exchange 2007 granular backups.

      - The installation of the client for NFS is different than what is listed
        in the NetBackup 6.5.3 documentation update.  To enable Service for NFS
        on Windows 2008, add the "Services for Network File System" role under
        File Services within the Windows Server Manager.  Confirm the
        "Client for NFS" has started successfully.

      - The 8022.0 or higher version of "Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client
        and Collaboration Data Object 1.2.1" is required on the Exchange server
        for granular recoveries or mailbox level backups to function properly.
        This can be downloaded from the following web site.

        http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=E17E7F31-079A-
           43A9-BFF2-0A110307611E&displaylang=en

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

+  The following list of issues applies to Microsoft Exchange.
  -  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.

+  (ET1527929) Backups of SharePoint Web applications or portals that use
  Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) and that contain a larger number of
  content databases (100+) may timeout. In this situation, increase the default
  "Client read timeout" setting to 900 seconds.

+  For NetBackup 6.5.4, the following configuration changes apply for Exchange
  cluster environments:
  -  To perform Continuous Cluster Replication (CCR) backups of the passive VSS
     writer, you no longer need to set the "Enable Remote Streaming Backup"
     registration key.
  -  For Exchange 2007 SP1 or later, you no longer need to configure the
     NetBackup Client Service to run as domain admin.

+  NetBackup for SQL Server
  If you peform a backup using multiple streams (stripes) and multiplexing, you
  cannot restore this backup image using more than one stripe.



Storage-related issues:
-----------------------
+  (ET1653458) When attempting multi-copy duplications in a clustered
  environment, duplications can fail with a status 254 if you have any
  storage units configured to use any available media server.

+  **(ET1652704) A potential for data loss was discovered in NetBackup
  Server / Enterprise Server when using Storage LifeCycle Policies (SLP).
  Duplication jobs that start writing data, but continue to fail past the
  expiration time of the source copy may never get retried, leading to skipped
  duplications or missing backup copies.  If this occurs, the activity monitor
  will display the failed duplication jobs, but there is no other indication
  that these duplications were missed.

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

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/324515

+  (ET1634241) Network optimized duplication may not perform as expected.
  Under the following circumstances, NetBackup may not always use a common
  media server if one is available:

  - The list of source images specified for a duplication job reside on more
    than one disk or tape volume, other than cases where images from the first
    volume used for the image list span to subsequent volumes.
 
  - A required common server for duplication is configured (the
    "nbemmcmd -common_server_for_dup required" option).

  After NetBackup duplicates all of the images from the first media ID,
  NetBackup performs as expected if the remaining images span from the first
  media ID to the other volumes.  However, if the images do not span from the
  first media ID, NetBackup may use a different media server to read the
  remaining images.

  This situation may occur with image lists created by Storage Lifecycles.

+  (ET1538745) Destinations within a storage lifecycle policy may be backup
  destinations or duplication destinations.

  Duplication destinations can be configured to indicate an alternate read
  server. The alternate read server can read a backup image that was originally
  written by a different media server.

  Each destination belongs to a particular disk pool. The alternate read server
  indicated for a duplication destination in the same storage lifecycle policy
  must be a server for the disk pool of the source backup destination.  Disk
  pools are listed under Media and Device Management > Devices > Disk Pools.

+  (ET1518794) Editing an SLP that has images in process can have adverse
  affects.  Two workarounds exist:
  a. Disable backup policies that use the SLP.  Wait until all images that are
     being managed by the SLP are "Lifecycle complete". Edit the SLP. Enable
     the backup policies that use the SLP.

  b. If you can not afford to disable the backup polices as described in a.
     above, then leave them active, but edit the policies to use a different
     SLP: Rather than changing the existing SLP, create a new SLP with the
     changes you want.  Then edit the backup policies that are configured to
     use the active SLP to replace the reference to the "old" SLP with the new
     SLP.  Do not delete the old SLP until all of the images it is processing
     are "Lifecycle complete".  Please refer to Tech Alert 323746 on the
     Symantec Support Web site.

     A fix is currently underway for this issue.  Symantec expects to make
     the fixes available in a post-6.5.4 package as soon as possible.

+  (ET1543025) Both types of backup staging methods make use of capacity
  management on disk storage units. This means that NetBackup automatically
  removes expired images from the storage unit to create space for new images.

  In either situation, NetBackup cannot manage the capacity of a storage unit
  that is NFS-mounted:
  - For basic disk staging:
    The disk staging storage unit is capacity-managed by default. Do not make a
    DSSU out of a storage unit that is NFS-mounted. (That is, do not select the
    Enable Temporary Staging Area option for that storage unit.)
  - For storage lifecycle policies:
    A destination can be configured to be capacity-managed.  Do not enable the
    Staged Capacity Managed option for any destination that is NFS-mounted.

+  (ET1485775) OpenStorage direct to tape lets you copy NetBackup backup images
  from a disk appliance to tape drives that are attached to an NDMP host.

  For more information, see the 6.5.4 version of the NetBackup Shared Storage
  Guide contained in the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318351

  Note: The license key that activates OpenStorage must be installed on each
        NetBackup media server that you use for direct to tape.

+  (ET1543384) Backups to disk my fail with status code 800

  During heavy NetBackup media server activity, backups to disk may fail with
  a NetBackup status code of 800.  The code appears in the Administration
  Console Activity Monitor Job Details display.

  See the NetBackup Troubleshooting Guide description of NetBackup status
  code 880 for remedial action.

  Jobs may fail because the heavy load causes processes to wait longer than
  the default timeout period (60 seconds).  You can try to increase the
  timeout by creating the following file on the media server:

  UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/db/config/DPS_PROXYDEFAULTRECVTMO
  Windows: C:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\db\config\DPS_PROXYDEFAULTRECVTMO

  If the config directory does not exist, create it.

  The file should contain the new timeout value, greater than or equal to 10 or
  less than or equal to 3600 seconds.

+  The SAN Client does not support inline tape copy over Fibre Transport. Inline
  tape copy jobs occur over the LAN.  SAN Client is designed for very high
  speed backup and restore.  Therefore, SAN Client excludes backup options
  (such as inline tape copy) that require more resources to process and manage.

+  (ET1516498) Images with a very large number of fragments (greater than
  12,000) can have adverse effects.
  (Note:  This issue pertains to the total number of fragments across all
          copies of a backup image.)

  The following configuration settings can be used to reduce the number of
  fragments:
  a. Make sure that the Maximum Fragment Size is not too small.
     -  A 1TB image with a Maximum Fragment Size of 20mb (with only one copy)
        would generate 50,000 fragments.  If a second copy was created, the
        image would have 100,000 fragments.
     -  Note:  Many users are configured with 20mb fragments, based on outdated
        TechNotes describing restore performance.  The limitation of restore
        performance has been resolved and these users should change this setting
        to allow larger fragments.
** b. The combination of checkpointing and multiplexing exacerbates this problem.
     Do not set checkpointing to a frequency less than 20 minutes.  Consider
     reducing the MPX factor.
     -  For example, checkpointing at five minutes with MPX at 8 causes
        96 fragments each hour.  If the client is slow and the backup runs for
        three days (this has been observed in the field), 6,912 fragments are
        created.  If the image is copied once,  a total of 13,824 fragments will
        exist.  A third copy results in a total of 20,736 fragments.  Please
        refer to Tech Alert 323748 on the Symantec Support Web site.

        A fix is currently underway for this issue.  Symantec expects to make
        the fixes available in a post-6.5.4 package as soon as possible.

+  (ET14463098) The Low water mark storage unit setting has no effect unless
  backups are written through a storage lifecycle policy, using the capacity
  managed retention type.

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

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

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

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

+  (ET1240562) NetBackup SharedDisk and Windows media servers

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

+  (ET1128929) 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



NetBackup user interface issues
(NetBackup Administration Console, command line interface, bp or bpadm, etc.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+  There is a difference in the user experience, between the MFC user interface
  and the NetBackup-Java Administration Console, when browsing granular backups
  for restores. This happens with granular backups from Microsoft Exchange,
  Microsoft SharePoint, or Microsoft Active Directory. The difference occurs
  when clicking on a granular node to expand the node and view its contents.
  Since there is a noticeable delay and overhead in expanding a granular node,
  the MFC user interface expands more than was being requested to attempt to
  minimize this delay.  The NetBackup-Java Administration Console does not do
  this. This requires the NetBackup-Java Console user to make additional node
  expansion clicks and causes an additional delay.

+  (ET1668436) Closing the NetBackup-Java Administration console does not
  terminate the NBSL session. It can cause the NBPROXY processes to run for
  the next 24 hours and eventually time out.  In addition, if you frequently
  start and stop the NetBackup-Java Administration console, the number of
  running NBPROXY processes increases the load on the respective NetBackup
  Master Server and eventually affects the performance of the Master Server.

  For more information and a work-around for this issue, refer to the
  following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site:

     http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/324998

+ (ET1517333) To back up all local drives, Symantec recommends that you use a
 scheduled backup from the master server. This method is much faster than
 performing a user-directed backup of all local drives from the client in
 Backup, Archive, and Restore.

+ (ET1401927) The Catalog Recovery wizard does not work after performing a
 change server operation. The operator must log on to the machine locally to
 recover the catalog.

+  The NetBackup Administration Console for Windows is not supported on
  Windows 2008 for the AMD64 platform. If a user attempts to launch the
  NetBackup Administration Console, it will cause the following error message.

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

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

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

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

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

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

+  (ET1395328)  When using the bp or bpadm interface on HP-UX 11.23 or 11.31
  systems on Integrity (IA-64) architecture, a DATE ERROR will be returned
  during attempts to change dates. For more information about this issue,
  refer to the following TechNote on the Symantec Support Web site.
       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/308809



General NetBackup issues:
-------------------------
+  (ET1136915) NetBackup recognizes wildcard character usage in some areas,
  such as in backup selection lists and exclude file lists.  Curly brackets
  or braces) can be used around multiple wildcard file name patterns, as
  described in the Administrator's Guide.

  However, since curly bracket characters are valid characters for Windows
  file names, they cannot be used to indicate wildcard usage for Windows
  platforms.  Also, backslashes cannot be used as escape characters for
  curly bracket characters.

+  (ET1636600) Backup problem with MS-Windows-NT policy type and VMware ESX
  version 3.0 and 3.0.1

  Symantec has identified a problem when backing up a NetBackup client that
  is installed in a Windows guest operating system on certain versions of
  VMware ESX servers. If you select the "MS-Windows-NT" policy type, and the
  ESX server is at version 3.0 or 3.0.1, the backup job hangs.

  This problem is apparently due to an issue in ESX server versions 3.0 or
  3.0.1, not in NetBackup.

  Potential workarounds are the following:

  - Update your ESX server to 3.0.2 or later.
  - Or, configure a VMware backup proxy server and use NetBackup for VMware
    to perform the backup. For assistance with NetBackup for VMware, see the
    "NetBackup for VMware Administrator's Guide."

+  (ET1586456) The NetBackup server requires logon credentials to access the
  VMware ESX servers or the VMware VirtualCenter. If the credentials you have
  entered are incorrect or do not work, the backup may fail with status
  code 156, "snapshot error encountered." In this case, you must verify
  whether the correct credentials were entered in NetBackup, and correct them
  as needed.

  1. In the NetBackup Administration Console, go to Media and Device
     Management > Credentials > Virtual Machine Servers.
  2. Double click on the credentials definition for the VMware server or
     VirtualCenter.
  3. When finished editing the credentials, select the "Validate Credentials"
     box in the dialog and click OK.

+  (ET1593098) Error message issued when trying to validate VMware credentials

  This NetBackup 6.5.4 release adds the ability to verify that the VMware
  credentials you have entered in the NetBackup policy are valid for the VMware
  server. The NetBackup Add Virtual Machine Server dialog now contains a
  "Validate Credentials" checkbox.

  Note: If your VMware proxy server is running a version of NetBackup that is
        earlier than 6.5.4, the credentials cannot be validated and an error
        message is displayed. You must verify that the credentials you entered
        are correct for the VMware server. If the credentials are correct, you
        can ignore the error message.

+  (ET1556112) As part of the catalog policy configuration, the administrator
  indicates a path to the directory where the disaster recovery information
  is saved.  This path is indicated on the Disaster Recovery tab.

  The path for the disaster recovery information cannot be to a directory
  that is on the same partition as /usr/openv/netbackup.  If the path for
  the disaster recovery information is to a location on the same partition as
  /usr/openv/netbackup, NetBackup displays a status 20 error message.  The
  message states that the disk path is invalid.  The administrator needs to
  change the path on the Disaster Recovery tab to a directory on a different
  partition.

+  In rare situations the first backup attempt after NetBackup is installed
  may fail.  This only happens if the backup is granular and if Microsoft
  Volume Shadow copy Services (VSS) is being used.  In addition, after this
  one failure all subsequent backups succeed

+  (ET1535587) The media server used for catalog backups must be at the same
  level as the master server.  This is true for hot or cold catalog backups.

+  (ET1504682) The bpbackup command is used to perform user backups from clients
  and manual backups from master servers. In addition to listing individual
  files or directories, bpbackup can also use directives to indicate the files
  to be backed up. For example: bpbackup "/Shadow Copy Components/"
  bpbackup "/System State/"

  Clients can enter the directive in the listfile by using the following option:
     bpbackup -f <listfile>

+  (ET1536915) Do not save logs to a remote file system such as NFS or CIFS.
  Logs that are stored remotely and then grow large can cause critical
  performance issues.

+  (ET1539585) In this release, an administrator can resume a suspended job
  until the retention period of the job is met.  The retention period begins
  when the job is suspended. If the administrator resumes the job after the
  retention period passes, the job fails because the image has expired. The
  job is then moved to the DONE state.

  Note that the Clean-up host property, "Move backup job from incomplete
  state to done state," does not apply to suspended jobs. Jobs are suspended
  manually and must be resumed manually.

+  (ET1512562) Individual restore of mails from BE images is not supported in
  NetBackup 6.5.x as mentioned in the NetBackup online help. This issue will
  be addressed in the next major release of NetBackup.

+  (ET1260712) NetBackup considers the failure history of a policy when
  determining whether or not to run a scheduled backup job. The timeframe for
  NetBackup to examine is one of the settings configured using the Schedule
  Backup Attempts setting in the Global Attributes host properties.

  This property determines the following characteristics for each policy:
  - How many preceding hours NetBackup examine before determining whether to
    allow another backup attempt (retry). By default, NetBackup examines the
    past 12 hours.
  - How many times a backup can be retried within that timeframe.  By default,
    NetBackup allows two attempts.  Attempts include scheduled backups that
    start automatically or scheduled backups that are user-initiated.

  In NetBackup 6.0 and later, all backup attempts apply toward this
  configurable limit, regardless of the type of backup or the schedule. In
  releases prior to 6.0, NetBackup allowed each schedule to meet the Schedule
  Backup Attempts property limit.  In some cases this resulted in more backup
  attempts than expected based on the property setting.

  Consider the following 6.5 example scenario using the default setting:
  2 tries every 12 hours:

  1.  Policy_A runs at 6:00 p.m.; Schedule_1 fails.
  2.  Policy_A is user-initiated at 8:00 p.m.; Schedule_2 fails.
  3.  At 11:00 p.m., NetBackup looks at the previous 12 hours.  It sees one
      attempt at 6:00 p.m. and one attempt at 8:00 p.m.  The Schedule backup
      attempts setting of two has been met so NetBackup does not try again.
  4.  At 6:30 a.m. the next morning, NetBackup looks at the previous 12 hours.
      It sees only one attempt at 8:00 p.m.  The Schedule backup attempts
      setting of two has not been met so NetBackup tries again.  If a schedule
      window is not open at this time, NetBackup waits until a window is open.

+  (ET1260712) For master servers at NetBackup version 6.5 or later, the
  ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting in the bp.conf file has no
  effect.  To allow mixed retention levels on media, use the nbemmcmd command
  to update the nbemm database and change the
  ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting. The default configuration does
  not allow multiple versions (a setting of 0 or no).

  To allow multiple retention levels, use nbemmcmd -changesetting to change the
  ALLOW_MULTIPLE_RETENTIONS_PER_MEDIA setting to 1 or yes.

+  (ET1364268) In 6.5.2 NetBackup introduced the ability to allow, restrict, or
  prohibit reverse host name lookup for master servers, media servers, and
  clients.

  Administrators can configure this using several methods:
  - By changing the Network Settings host properties in the Administration
    Console.
  - By editing the bp.conf file (UNIX) or the Windows Registry.
  - New in 6.5.4: By using the bpclntcmd command on UNIX or Windows systems.

  Using the bpclntcmd command:
  To display the current configuration setting, enter the command:
  bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup

  To change the entry, log on to the system as root or Administrator. Enter
  one of the following commands:

  - To allow reverse host name lookup (default), enter:
    bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup allowed

    This setting indicates that the host requires reverse host name lookup
    to be working in order to determine that the connection comes from a
    recognizable server.

  - To restrict reverse host name lookup, enter:
    bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup restricted

    This setting indicates that the NetBackup host first attempts to perform
    reverse host name lookup. If the NetBackup host successfully resolves the
    IP address of the connecting server to a host name (reverse lookup is
    successful), it compares the host name to the list of known server host
    names.

    If the resolution of the IP address to a host name fails (reverse lookup
    fails), based on the Restricted setting, the host converts the host names
    of the known server list to IP addresses (using a forward lookup). The
    host compares the IP address of the connecting server to the list of known
    server IP addresses.

    If the comparison fails, the host rejects the connection from server and
    the connection fails.

  - To prohibit reverse host name lookup enter
    bpclntcmd -reverse_name_lookup prohibited

    This setting indicates that the NetBackup host does not try reverse host
    name lookup at all. The host resolves the host names of the known server
    list to IP addresses using forward lookups.

    The NetBackup host then compares the IP address of the connecting server
    to the list of known server IP addresses.

    If the comparison fails, the NetBackup host rejects the connection from
    the server and the connection fails.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

+  VMware NetBackup Integration Module (VNIM) not required.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  The following text is the correct replacement text.

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

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

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

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

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

  or vice versa.

+  (ET1597920) Disaster recovery email and AdvancedDisk storage units
  If an online, hot catalog backup is directed to an AdvancedDisk storage unit
  and a catalog backup policy identifies a critical policy that has a backup
  image located on the same AdvancedDisk storage unit, the disaster recovery
  email does not list that critical policy.

  However, the policy is listed in the disaster recovery file.  You can open
  the DR file with a text editor to obtain that critical policy information
  (the media server and the media ID on which the policy's backup image
  resides).



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

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

  -  SAN Client Platform Proliferations corrections

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

IV. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
=============================
** The content of this online Readme supersedes the information in the Readme
contained in the download. **

NOTE: Click on the "Download Now" link, near the bottom of this document
prior to running the following installation procedure for this Release Update.

Before installing this release update, please review the following items:
 - Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups before and after you
   apply this maintenance pack.

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

 - If you are planning to install this Release Update as a part of an upgrade
   from a NetBackup 5.x release then it is important that you understand that
   the existing NetBackup databases must be in a consistent state prior to
   beginning the upgrade. You can view information and tools to assist you in
   determining the current state of your database, as well as instructions to
   help you address any inconsistencies that you might discover on the
   NetBackup Upgrade Portal, a part of the Symantec NetBackup Support Web site.

     http://support.veritas.com/menu_ddProduct_NBUESVR.htm

 - If upgrading a NetBackup client on which this Release Update has been
   installed to a NetBackup server, you must first uninstall this Release
   Update, perform the upgrade from client to server,then re-apply this
   Release Update to the new server.


To install this Release Update in a UNIX Cluster Environment:

1) Before you install this Release Update, make sure that NetBackup is at
  release level 6.5 and configured to run in a cluster.

2) Install this Release Update on the inactive node(s) of the cluster first.
  (Perform an installation by following install procedures below).

3) Install this Release Update on the active node of the cluster.
  (Again, perform an installation by following install procedures below).

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

  NOTE: A directory "NB_CLT_6.5.4" is created in the cluster shared directory.
        This directory stores files that will be needed during an uninstall.
        Do not remove it.

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


There are two ways to install the client release update software.

1. Remote Client Installation:  Loads the software on a NetBackup server with
   the intent of pushing client software out to affected clients.

2. Local Client Installation:   Loads and installs the software only to this
   local machine.

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

To install this Release Update remotely as root on the NetBackup Master/Media
server:

1) Close the NetBackup user interfaces.
  - Make sure the NetBackup server has no active jobs running (for example,
    backups, restores, or duplications).

  - If a database agent is being used, such as Oracle, ensure that the database
    services are stopped.

2) Install NB_6.5.4 and NB_CLT_6.5.4 Release Update binaries.

       cd /tmp
       /bin/sh NB_update.install

  NOTE: Selecting the client Release Update on a Master/Media server will
  automatically install the server release update if the server (NB) .Z file
  and README exist in the installation directory. The client install will fail
  if the (NB) .Z file and README are not present and the server pack has not
  been previously installed. The server release update will NOT be installed
  automatically during a reinstall of the client release update.  

  NOTE: The installation of the client pack on a server copies the appropriate
  client binaries into place on the server.  Additionally, any other client
  binaries on the server will be updated so that they can then be pushed out
  using update_clients.  Therefore, Symantec recommends that you also apply
  the NB JAV release update before running update_clients.  If other client
  binaries are installed after applying this release update, this release
  update needs to re-run to patch those other client binaries.

  NOTE: It is important that Server and Client binaries are kept at the same
  release level on all NetBackup Servers.  This is enforced by the install
  process.


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

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

  You can find the pack install logs in /usr/openv/pack/pack.history after the
  installation is complete.

4) Update the remote NetBackup clients with the update_clients script.

       /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients <hardware> <os>

       where <hardware> <os> is one of the following:

       ALPHA/OSF1_V5
       HP-UX-IA64/HP-UX11.23
       HP-UX-IA64/HP-UX11.31*
       HP9000-800/HP-UX11.00
       HP9000-800/HP-UX11.11
       HP9000-800/HP-UX11.31*
       INTEL/FreeBSD5.3
       Linux-IA64/RedHat2.6
       Linux-IA64/SuSE2.4
       Linux-IA64/SuSE2.6
       Linux/IBMpSeriesRedHat2.6
       Linux/IBMpSeriesSuSE2.6
       Linux/IBMzSeriesLinux2.4.21
       Linux/IBMzSeriesRedHat2.6
       Linux/IBMzSeriesSuSE2.6
       Linux/RedHat2.4
       Linux/RedHat2.6
       Linux/SuSE2.6
       MACINTOSH/MacOSX10.3
       MACINTOSH/MacOSX10.4
       RS6000/AIX5
       SGI/IRIX65
       Solaris/Solaris8
       Solaris/Solaris9
       Solaris/Solaris10
       Solaris/Solaris_x86_8
       Solaris/Solaris_x86_9
       Solaris/Solaris_x86_10_64

       * - For "HP-UX-IA64/HP-UX11.31" or "HP9000-800/HP-UX11.31" to show when
           configuring clients into a backup policy, the following must be
           executed on the server:

           /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/goodies/new_clients

           
      Note: The /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/update_clients command without
            any parameters updates all the UNIX clients.
           
      Note: When updating an RS6000 client, there may be circumstances
            where update_clients fails with an error similar to this:

               Couldn't open /usr/openv/lib/libVmangle.so on client
               Client open errno = 26

            If this happens, execute /usr/sbin/slibclean on the client
            to be updated and re-run update_clients.

  If the client (CLT) .Z file and README exist in the installation directory
  during the installation of the server release update, the NB_update.install
  script installs the client release update automatically. The client release
  update will NOT be installed automatically during a reinstall of the server
  release update.  


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

To perform a Local client install this Release Update:

NOTE: The install script determines if a local client install is appropriate
     and chooses the appropriate client type to install.

As root on the NetBackup client:

1) Close the NetBackup user interfaces.
  - Make sure the NetBackup server has no active jobs running (for example,
    backups, restores, or duplications).

  - If a database agent is being used, such as Oracle, ensure that the database
    services are stopped.


2) Install NB_CLT_6.5.4 Release Update binaries.

      cd /tmp
      /bin/sh NB_update.install

NOTE:  Again, Symantec recommends that you perform catalog backups after you
have applied this maintenance pack.




=========================
V. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
=========================
Note:  This will ONLY uninstall the release update from your machine if the
      client release update software was installed directly on the machine.
      This uninstall procedure will NOT work on clients that were installed
      by pushing the software from a server.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To uninstall this Release Update in a UNIX Cluster Environment:

1) Freeze the cluster to prevent failover during the uninstall.

2) Uninstall this Release Update on the inactive node(s) of the cluster first.

3) Uninstall this Release Update on the active node of the cluster.

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

5) Be sure to uninstall both client and server updates on each node before
  proceeding to the next step.

6) Unfreeze the cluster.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


As root on the NetBackup Master/Media Server in which the release update was
installed:

   1)Close the NetBackup user interfaces.

       - Make sure the NetBackup server has no active jobs running (for
         example, backups, restores, or duplications).

       - If a database agent is being used, such as Oracle, ensure that the
         database services are stopped.

   2)Change directory to the patch save directory.  
       Substitute the pack name for ${PACK} in the following command:

          cd /usr/openv/pack/${PACK}/save

   3)Run the un-install script:

         ./NB_update.uninstall

   4)Verify that the pack uninstalled successfully by checking:

       /usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

   5)If update_clients was run after the pack was originally INSTALLED,
       run it again after that pack is successfully UNINSTALLED.

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

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

Current Release Update
----------------------
Each item listed in this section describes a feature, enhancement, or change
that comprises this Release Update. Please read this section thoroughly to
understand the contents of this update.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1285455

Description:
   A change was made to replace the raw-sockets Openstorage proxy plugin, RPC.
   This plug-in uses bpcd and pbx with a Corba-based scheme that is consistent
   with the established NetBackup practice.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1247094
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1247090
Titan cases:  240-749-518

Description:
   bpexpedate was missing from UNIX bpps output.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1266996

Description:
   If the event manager (nbevtmgr) core dumped and was restarted by the
   service monitor (nbsvcmon) high water mark events might not get received by
   nbstserv.  As a result, disk clean up did not occur when the disk-staging
   storage unit (STU) reached the high-water mark. The backup policies
   reported the STU as full when there was still disk space available.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1274467

Description:
   If a job queue was waiting for a counted resource such as max jobs per
   client or max jobs per policy, the retry reason was provided in the "state
   details" in Activity Monitor. However, there was no corresponding message
   in "job details".  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1271181
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1270442
Titan cases:  240-929-831 291-179-422 311-919-195

Description:
   When upgrading from NetBackup 6.0 to 6.5 some old entries could remain in
   the database. These entries would cause the NetBackup Resource Broker
   (NBRB) to crash at start-up. A change was made to remove these entries
   from the database.

Workaround:
   If you encounter an issue similar to this, you should clean the database
   manually.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1266828

Description:
   A change to the default value of some configuration options was added to
   this  release. The NetBackup resource broker (nbrb) will now use "shared
   reservations" as the default. In addition, the evaluation cycle will be
   interrupted every three minutes and unloads will be performed at each
   break.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1267706

Description:
   An enhancement has been made that enables a user to preserve multiplexing
   on duplicated tape images.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1240486

Description:
   Symbolic links were added between HP-UX11.11 and HP-UX11.31 for
   HP PA RISC systems.  In addition, symbolic links were added between
   HP-UX11.23 and HP-UX11.31 for HP Itanium.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1275233

Description:
   Changes were made to the nbkmsutil client interface (CLI) to accept
   values for the arguments state and cipher to no longer be case sensitive.
   For example, Prelive, PRELIVE, prelive are now accepted as the same value.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1291152

Description:
   This release of NetBackup contains a new NetBackup Enterprise Vault agent.
   For more information about this agent, refer to the following TechNote on
   the Symantec Support Web site.
   
       http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/318349
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1260323
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1198882
Titan cases:  281-230-867

Description:
   The DstMediaID field was not populated for all jobs in the bpdbjobs -report
   output.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1251656

Description:
   Changes were made to improve performance of tape (source) to tape
   (destination) duplications by using the same bptm write process across
   multiple backup images. This is similar to the current behavior when

   duplicating disk to tape images. The greatest benefit occurs when
   duplicating many small images, and when the source is a VTL. This change
   does not have any effect when using the "preserve multiplexing" option.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1254610

Description:
   bpbackup would fail with a status code 174 error. A change was made to
   address a problem with how the Tru64 Advfs file system behaved when the
   file system became full. The change modifies the behavior of the disk
   write code to work around that problem.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1248242 ET1290084

Description:
   Bpdbm would exit if there was a serious mismatch between the content of
   the EMM Database and the image database. On startup, bpdbm would exit if
   the db/images/db_marker.txt file did not exist.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1281628

Description:
   Certain conditions could cause the number of images on a piece of media
   to become negative.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1264543

Description:
   Memory was leaked while fetching NDMP information.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1277465
Titan cases:  320-181-589

Description:
   True Image Restore (TIR) was required for a backup to a NearStore storage
   unit with filesystem export enabled. The filesystem export feature
   provides a filesystem export of the data set as well as improved data
   de-duplication on the filer. This feature enables users who may not be
   interested in filesystem export to still receive the improved data
   de-duplication. In addition, a user also may not want to configure his
   or her policies with the overhead of TIR. This enhancement enables TIR
   to be optional for backups to a NearStore storage unit with filesystem
   export.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1267880

Description:
   For a multiple copy job, different copies could be waiting for different
   reason code. But only one reason could be displayed in the Activity
   Monitor. The reason code displayed in the Activity Monitor was the reason
   code for the last waiting copy and it was not getting updated in case the
   reason changes or if the copy was no longer waiting for anything.
   
   With the fix, the reason code for the last waiting copy is still
   displayed. However, the reason code is updated every five minutes. So if
   the reason code changes, it is reflected in the Activity Monitor.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1065622

Description:
   VxFI uses its own caching for assigning a LUN to array disks. If the disk
   was assigned to a host using another LUN, the nbshareddisk, after a
   failure, is  supposed to print the following error message if the LUN is
   already unmasked to the host.
      UDID already unmasked on the host on some other LUN
   
   Currently the nbshareddisk prints the following error.
      ERROR: import resource failed LUN unmasking (presenting) failed
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1298872

Description:
   Command lines that used emmlib would receive a segmentation fault if the
   orb initialization failed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1286001
Titan cases:  320-113-968

Description:
   A progress log file created during bpbackup would not show the media ID
   used during that backup operation.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1278425
Titan cases:  311-569-042

Description:
   Some Linux directories have incorrect ACL's assigned. A change has been
   added to rectify the issue by looking at each of the three values
   separately instead of en mass.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1298551

Description:
   Failed SSOD start-up restore jobs would appear as completed (successful)
   in the Activity Monitor.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1266772
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1241061
Titan cases:  220-246-593 220-263-137

Description:
   Changes have been made to correct misleading log messages.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1239520
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1238164
Titan cases:  281-315-523

Description:
   If the CLIENT_PORT_WINDOW was specified in the configuration, vnetd
   connection code would give up too soon when seeing EADDRINUSE errors
   from connect(2).  

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, do not specify CLIENT_PORT_WINDOW. Use the
   default values.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1295790 ET1321721
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1293550
Titan cases:  220-322-223 220-334-354

Description:
   A change was made to address an issue that caused an incremental backup
   to run as full backup the first time an incremental was attempted after
   upgrading to 6.5.2.
   
   For more information about this change, refer to the following TechNote
   on the Symantec Support Web site.
      http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/304269
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1151349

Description:
   A status 26 error would appear in the restore status user interface during
   an SQL database Flashsnap Instant Recovery copy-back restore. The restore
   succeeds.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1276983

Description:
   When using the NetBackup Administration Console on the inactive node of a
   cluster, a problem existed that prohibited a user from being able to view
   properties for disk storage units.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1274105

Description:
   The bpcompatd conversion to string was not handled in the start and the
   stop array for UNIX.  A change was made to add the proper string
   conversion for bpcompatd name.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1286092

Description:
   The output from the nbdb_backup command line was not localized on Japanese
   and Chinese systems.  This also affected the NbDbAdmin.exe on the Windows
   NetBackup Administration Console.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1302201

Description:
   A change has been added to address an issue that caused a bpdbm core dump
   while creating a new policy .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1316849 ET1427469 ET1456039 ET1458931 ET1468485 ET1502155
ET1503870 ET1502078 ET1518331 ET1501805

Description:
   Active Directory Granular Restore is a feature being added to the 6.5.4
   release. This feature enables the restore of individual Active Directory
   objects from a standard System State backup.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1301041

Description:
   The Legacy Encryption backups and restores for AFS policy types are
   supported with this version of NetBackup. Standard Encryption backups for
   AFS policy types are not supported and the following message is logged:
   
   "Standard Encryption is not supported for AFS volume backups. Use Legacy
   Encryption"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1253910

Description:
   A change was made to ensure that the NetBackup Administration Console
   (for Java and Windows) validates VM user credentials when entered.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1246062

Description:
   Changes have been made to the Snapshot Client Options dialog to improve
   the way VMware options are displayed.

Etrack Incident = ET1316896

Description:
   In certain failure cases the nbsvrgrp executable would crash.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1234683

Description:
   VxFI would close all the possible descriptors for a process. A change has
   been made to close only those that are open. This change also ensures that
   a lot of time is not consumed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1282457

Description:
   Changes have been made to PERFO Minimize BPGETCONFIG calls to improve
   performance.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1315723
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1136100
Titan cases:  281-183-906

Description:
   The NetBackup-Java Administration Console could not display certain
   French characters. This limited the restore capabilities in that a single
   file restore was not possible because the files could not be displayed.
   More specifically, there were no files that matched the specified criteria
   in restore properties.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1141312
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1137054
Titan cases:  281-202-606

Description:
   The DISK_GROUP variable in a shell script was not being initialized. In
   some cases shell scripts would write an error message on the console,
   when the DISK_GROUP variable was used without initializing it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1235177

Description:
   Changes have been added in this release to fix for issues reported by
   Coverity such as a memory Leak in the setPolicyInfo() function. (This
   function was removed because it was no longer used.)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET700722

Description:
   A change was made to improve the time it would take for NBSL to send the
   DriveThroughput information.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   to not work on the Media server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1269701

Description:
   A change has been made to correct inconsistencies with the Attempt history
   in NOM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1221450

Description:
   NOM requires NBSL interface for collecting media server information.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      RedHat 5 FT Media Server support
      RedHat 5.2 FT Media Server support
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1302903

Description:
   The NetBackup event manager (nbevtmgr) would crash when run on an HP-UX
   Machine with a hostname that is greater than eight characters long, due
   to the following error.
      ACE_OS::hostname() returning a truncated hostname.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1245767

Description:
   Some error descriptions could not be found for errors within nbemm.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1240580

Description:
   A change has been made to address an issue that caused the Event Manager
   to core dump during startup if the Authentication Server was configured
   incorrectly and did not respond.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1260009

Description:
   If a backup was sent to a storage unit group that was comprised of one
   or more Disk Staging Storage Units (DSSU) and the first DSSU tried was
   full, the job would fail with a 129 status error. Subsequent retries
   would continue to use the original DSSU and would continue to fail with
   the same error.  A fix has been added to correct the retry behavior so
   the job is sent to another DSSU in the group on subsequent retries.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1363123

Description:
   A change has been made to the bpclntcmd command to make it easier to update
   the REVERSE_NAME_LOOKUP configuration on a NetBackup client. For more
   information about this enhancement, refer to the NetBackup 6.5.4 Documentation

Description:
   Virtual Synthetics code changes have been added to the release update.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1226486 ET1244254 ET1249811 ET1255700 ET1370738 ET1384896
ET1377315 ET1382522 ET1383095 ET1126594 ET1403614 ET1431007 ET1432150 ET1421497

Description:
   Problems would occur when trying to restore a SharePoint database from
   a full and differential backup.    
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1364370

Description:
   Hot Catalog backups would fail with a 130 status when the db_marker.txt
   file existed in the images directory.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1261359

Description:
   A change has been made to bpmedialist to enable a user to display just
   the Media that is "owned" by the  "-owner UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP".
   
   When Unrestricted Media Sharing was enabled, and there were tapes that
   were being shared, the following was true:
   -  "nbemmcmd -listmedia" shows the Server Group for these tapes as
      "UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP".
   
   -  "bpmedialist -ls" shows the last field (media server name or Server
      Group) as "UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP".
   
   -  "bpmedialist -owner ALL" shows "UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP" as the
      Server Group that owns any shared tape.
   
   However....
   "bpmedialist -owner UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP" was not allowed.
   
   This meant that there was no way to get just the tapes that were "owned"
   by "UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP" unless a user performed a
   "bpmedialist -ls|grep UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP" or
   bpmedialist -owner all|grep UNRESTRICTED_SHARING_GROUP".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1182949

Description:
   If the VXSS_CREDENTIAL_PATH environment variable is set to point to a file
   that contains valid credentials, executing bpnbat -login will overwrite the
   file with erroneous information.  

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, run bpnbat -login and then rename
   $HOME/.vxss/credential as desired and set the same into
   VXSS_CREDENTIAL_PATH.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1368000

Description:
   The first backup job (parent) for a differential schedule for a Windows
   Open File Backup (WOFB) job with multi-streaming enabled and a file list
   of ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES would fail with status 200. If you retry the job it
   runs successfully.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1361179
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1361178
Titan cases:  220-349-593 320-132-770

Description:
   If the MDS allocations were removed directly by using
   "nbrbutil -releaseMDS" or by deleting the record from the database,
   nbrb would not be able to remove the corresponding allocation records
   from its database. This would cause the resource broker's (RB's) drive
   cache to misbehave (for example, jobs would not receive resources even if
   the drives were available) and performed other redundant operations which
   simply consumed CPU cycles.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1374137

Description:
   NetBackup Job Manager (NBJM) would crash when a vault job was canceled
   after vltrun started and while it was waiting for a logical resource from
   NBJM.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1250875
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1234214
Titan cases:  320-095-399

Description:
   A change was made to the behavior of AFS file system backups that are no
   longer online at the time of the backup.  The option of incrementing the
   error count was added rather than failing the backup.  This behavior is
   controlled using the following new client touch file:
   
      /usr/openv/netbackup/WAIT_FOR_VOS_DUMP.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, re-run listvol and the backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1274771

Description:
   Enhancements were made with API versioning that involved changes to the
   OST core library and header files, to enable interoperability between
   different versions of the core library and plug-ins.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1385956

Description:
   Enable Open Storage storage servers that support direct-attached devices
   to be configured as NDMP hosts in the Device Configuration wizard of the
   user interface.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, use the -ndmp_host option for the tpautoconf
   command line utility.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1283409

Description:
   A change was made to address an issue that caused NBPEM to crash on
   shutdown when manual or user-initiated backup jobs were running.

Etrack Incident = ET1378098
Titan cases:  281-339-813

Description:
   Improve handling of disk full scenarios on NTFS compressed file systems.
   With NTFS compression, an image fragment cannot be closed if the file
   system was full. This change solves that problem. In addition, asynchronous
   compression can cause excessive and premature disk full processing. This
   change adds a delay loop in the image layer to allow NTFS compressed image
   files a 60 second opportunity to make space available for the current
   buffer.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1388949

Description:
   The pack install no longer shows "vxlogcfg: No such file or directory"

Description:
   The ps output showed arguments out of order causing bpps to not detect a
   running nbemm on an AIX system.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1394294

Description:
   An optimized duplication job must send a percent complete status to the
   job progress log.
   
   When an optimized duplication was performed, the progress status bar
   was not populated with the current job progress information. Normal
   duplication jobs display progress status. A change has been made so that
   optimized duplication updates the job progress monitor with the percent
   complete status. This fix enables customers to see the percent complete
   being updated as the job progresses.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1391201

Description:
   If the KMS_DIR configuration variable was set to just the drive letter
   (for example, d:\) the creation of an empty KMS database failed. The
   error that was seen when running the command "nbkms -createemptydb" was:
     KMS db write failed - some changes may have been made EXIT STATUS = 1277
   
   The nbkms VxUL logs (OID 286) would contain the following line:
     CreateDirectory() failed: 5

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, include a directory name along with the drive
   letter in KMS_DIR to allow the KMS database to be created. For example,
   use d:\kms instead of d:\.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
   An image cleanup job would generate the following nbdelete error (status
   code 114: Unimplemented error code.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1397770

Description:
   Adding an empty entry to the client database caused backups to fail with a
   status 48, (for example, bpclient -add -client client-name).

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, delete the empty client database entry.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1397803

Description:
   Events sent by NetBackup OST plug-ins are propagated to the NetBackup
   Event Manager so that other processes can consume these events. These
   events broadcast the general health, status changes and operational
   information related to storage servers.
   
   In addition to receiving events from the plug-in, single-threaded
   processes like bpdm/bpduplicate can also listen to such plug-in
   propagated events. Such infrastructure helps to initiate asynchronous
   operations in the storage server. Updates to the progress and completion
   of these operations are relayed via events.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1378871

Description:
   In older versions of NBU, it was possible for xlatemsg() to return success
   without properly setting the message pointer.  The specific error in
   question is that nbpem crashes when its entries (116) are removed from
   /usr/openv/netbackup/nblog.conf.

Workaround:
   The workaround to this problem is to replace entries 116 in
   /usr/openv/netbackup/nblog.conf.  However, newer versions of NetBackup
   already have fixed the source of this problem, and no workaround is needed.

   If the xlatemsg call failed while writing to the progress log at the end
   of a job, the job end status notification was not sent to NBPEM. As a
   result, NBPEM thought the job was still running and no new jobs would be
   schedule for the policy/client.
   
   The xlatemsg call would fail because of erroneous entries in nblog.conf,
   because of an incorrect locale setting, or because the message catalog

Etrack Incident = ET1412901

Description:
   At present the NBSL - NOM protocol for volume information fetch does not
   guarantee a complete initial data load if an error occurs during initial
   data load.  

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, the NBSL sends error information through an
   interceptor and NOM can restart data loading under error conditions.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1411499

Description:
   The bpsturep command would give an error when trying to change a DSSU.
   After an upgrading, an attempt top modify a DSSU staging schedule to

Etrack Incident = ET1424207

Description:
   When bpbrm or bpbrmds exits on media servers, there are times when the
   Job Manager (JM) does not receive a socket close notification for a
   long time. Because of this the job clean-up gets delayed and would
   cause problems.
   
   With this fix, JM is explicitly breaking the connection when it gets the
   final exit status from bpbrm or bpbrmds.

Etrack Incident = ET1323857 ET1538553
Titan cases:  281-476-301

Description:
   Added an option, -disk_media_server, to bprestore. A user can use this
   option to specify a media server for shared disk, OST, and PureDisk SPA.
   Users will find this option useful in cases where the NetBackup domain
   spans multiple sites (such as, PDDO, OST) and the resource allocation
   could choose a remote media server that causes the image to be dragged

Etrack Incident = ET1447265

Description:
   Could not add an NDMP host for OST storage servers' direct copy-to-tape
   reader.  The problem was that some vendors use multiple storage server
   names for various interfaces to the same physical machine - and same IP
   address.  If the storage server name was resolvable, for example due to
   an /etc/hosts entry, when the user attempted to add the NDMP host, the DNS
   lookup actually matched it to the storage server machine record. In this
   case, when the user attempted to add the NDMP credentials and errors with
   the message "Credentials already exist for NDMP host <hostname>".
   

   A setting for the EMM server has been added to override this.  In the

Etrack Incident = ET1126065

Description:
   nbftsrv_config would fail on Linux machines with QLogic SCSI adapters.

Additional Notes:
   nbftsrv_config was always attempting to remove the qla2xxx driver that
   is required by both the qla2300 and qla2400 QLogic FC HBA drivers and
   various QLogic SCSI HBA drivers.  nbftsrv_config should not remove the
   qla2xxx unless it has removed all of the drivers depending on qla2xxx.
   Without the proper checks, the attempt to remove qla2xxx would fail on
   machines with QLogic SCSI adapters and fail to complete its work leaving
   the machine without QLogic FC HBA drivers installed and without
   installing the Symantec qla2300_stub driver required for nbhba mode.

Description:
   Duplications would potentially fail or hang if it had previously failed.
   This would only happen with a UNIX media server, and if the source and
   destination media servers were the same.

Workaround:
   There are two potential workarounds for this issue, either one works:
   
   On the master server, create the following file:
   
     UNIX: /usr/openv/netbackup/NOSHMDUP
     Windows: VERITAS\NetBackup\NOSHMDUP
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Etrack Incident = ET1402322
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1366926
Titan cases:  220-353-121

Description:
   The default xinetd.conf settings on RedHat 5 limit the number of
   "per_source" connections to 10. This could cause connection problems
   to busy NetBackup hosts. For example, this could cause multi-stream
   database extension backups to fail.
   
   The fix replaces the bpcd and vnetd configuration files for xinetd with
   new copies that contain the following values:
   
     connections  = UNLIMITED
     per_source   = UNLIMITED
     cps          = 1000 1
   
   If the bpcd and vnetd configuration files are replaced, the old copies
   are saved in /etc/xinetd.d as bpcd.<timestamp> and vnetd.<timestamp>.
   
   If a "per_source" entry already exists in the bpcd and vnetd files, no
   changes are made to these files.
   
   The fix is applicable to all NetBackup-supported operating systems that
   run xinetd.
   
   For more information, please see the following Technote:
      http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/300810

Additional Notes:
   These changes are not reverted on uninstall.

Description:
   Client containers now include install_client and extract_java scripts.  
   This corrects a potential upgrade problem for client binaries on
   NetBackup servers.
   
   After applying a previous NetBackup 6.5.x Release Update, and running
   install_client_files from a Linux NetBackup Server to push a different
   client type (for example, Solaris), the following error occurred:
   
      Unknown hardware type: "LINUX_RH_X86"
   
   This error occurred because other client platforms were not being
   upgraded properly to NetBackup 6.5GA.
   
   Users must separately update all other client platforms at
   NetBackup 6.5GA, however there was not a warning so it could be easily
   overlooked.  This fix allows this upgrade path to succeed even if it is
   not the correct upgrade path.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1508567

Description:
   The catalog check for whether a duplication is in progress on Windows was
   leaving a lock on the file for the duration of the catalog operation that
   was doing the check.  This had the potential of causing other catalog
   operations that were running during that time to mistakenly conclude that
   a duplication was in progress and prevent the operation from proceeding.
   
   The duplication protocol calls for bpduplicate to lock the new copy at
   the start of the duplication and unlock the copy at the end of the
   duplication.  bpdbm implements this lock with a file lock on a file with
   the name <image>.cpy, where <image> is the name of the image header file.
   Other catalog operations check whether a duplication is in progress by
   attempting to lock the copy file - failure to obtain the lock indicates
   no duplication is in progress.

Description:
   The vendor-unique library handling of barcodes can cause inject
   operations to fail, requiring CLI operations.
   
   LTO/SDLT media barcodes contain special characters ('L1', 'L4').  
   Some libraries report these characters as the last two characters and
   some remove them from the barcode.  If you eject a media from a library,
   and then inject it into another, where the two libraries use a different
   form of barcode, the import of the second library will fail. The reported
   failure is a duplicate media ID exists (due to the fact that the barcodes
   DO NOT MATCH).  An option has been added to the robotic inventory command
   to compare all but the last two characters of the barcode to determine a
   match. To turn this on from the command line you must specify the option,
   "-fix_barcode_suffix", for the vmupdate utility.
   
   To enable this from the user interface, you must create the file,
   "/usr/openv/volmgr/database/FIX_BARCODE_SUFFIX",
   on the machine where the user interface is run.

Workaround:
   Use vmchange to change the barcode in the volume database to match the
   form of the media's current library for each media being injected.

Description:
   A corrupted Calendar file for a policy would disable all subsequent
   policies that use calendar schedules. When NetBackup reaches the
   corrupted Calendar file, the following log message was printed at
   read_schedinfo():
   
        15:27:31.734 [11861] <2> read_schedinfo: Unspecified error(80000006)
   
   This issue not only affected the policy with a corrupted Calendar file
   but also all subsequent policies with Calendar schedules.
   
   The bppllist -allpolicies -U command is also affected by this issue.

Titan cases:  320-131-776

Description:
   Key words in the bppllist output have changed after upgrading to
   NetBackup 6.5 affecting the automated processing of output.
   
   There were differences in the bppllist out between NetBackup 6.5 and
   6.0/5.1/5.0/4.5/3.4.  These changes were not advertised in the release
   notes of the product and could cause automated scripts that parse their
   output to fail.  In addition, the syntax of the output was not
   consistent between LONG (-L) and USER(-U) output formats.
   
   The changes were made by ET264496 in preparation for the 6.5GA release
   and do not affect prior releases of NetBackup.  

Additional Notes:
   The scope of the changes and inconsistencies is detailed below.
   
   The hard coded strings differ from the original macros values. There are
   also differences between the LONG format and USER format within the
   NetBackup 6.5 code including one client/policy type that is not included
   in the USER format output.
   
   6.5 LONG format compared to USER format:
      - Pre-NetBackup 6.5:
        - Apollo-wbak
        - Informix-On-BAR
        - PureDisk_Export
      - In NetBackup 6.5:
        - Apollo-wbaks
        - Informix
   
   6.5 CTS_* macros compared to LONG format:
      - Pre-NetBackup 6.5:
        - CMS-Database
        - NetWare
        - OS/2
        - Oracle-Obackup
        - PureDisk-Export
      - In NetBackup 6.5:
        - CMS Database
        - Netware
        - OS2
        - PureDisk_Export
   
   6.5 CTS_* macros compared to USER format:
      - Pre-NetBackup 6.5:
        - Apollo-wbak
        - CMS-Database
        - Informix-On-BAR
        - NetWare
        - OS/2
      - In NetBackup 6.5:
        - Apollo-wbaks
        - CMS Database
        - Informix
        - Netware
        - OS2
   
   These type of inconsistencies do not affect the schedule types only the
   policy/client types.

Description:
   In NetBackup environments that span multiple sites or have Media servers
   separated by a firewall, resource allocation could choose a remote or a
   Media server that is not accessible for restore that can cause an image
   to be dragged across the WAN or fail.
   
   The following two options provide configurable workarounds:
   1. FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER
      Using the user interface, an administrator can create multiple
      entries to force the usage of a Media server to perform the restore
      operation. The entries can be made in Host Properties > Master
      Server > Master Server Properties > General Server > Media Host
      Override.
   
   2. Use the same Media server that was used to perform the backup. If a
      touch file USE_BACKUP_MEDIA_SERVER_FOR_RESTORE is created in
      db/config, same Media server is used.

Etrack Incident = ET1527862
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1206358
Titan cases:  281-179-782

Description:
   NetBackup performance, both its daemons or services and in the user
   interface, would be negatively impacted if DNS services were slow to
   return a hostname or perform 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 would delay NetBackup,
   and cause the user interface to be non-responsive.
   
   This change logs the offending hostname whenever such a look-up 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:
   DNS lookup elapsed time: : 30 0x0000001e

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1534880

Description:
   The proxy plug-in (the old proxy plug-in) and the proxy server were
   built at STS_VERSION 9.  When the proxy server attempted to start on a
   NetBackup 6.5.4 server (6.5.4 is installed with a V10 STS core library),
   the proxy server would fail because its call to sts_init fails. A change
   was made to build a proxy server in v10 and leave proxy plug-in in v9.
   This in essence, fools the proxy plug-in by hard coding the proxy server
   version as 9. This means the proxy server will handle the different
   version of interfaces, and translate v10's structure into v9, and pass
   to the plug-in.

Etrack Incident = ET1595019

Description:
   Invalid inode entries for Flashbackup and NDMP validation failures were
   not reported correctly with the "cat_convert -check" option.

Additional Notes:
   With this change, the format of the reports that were produced changed
   slightly:
   
   The new format for the Invalid Inode Report is:
   
   Invalid Inode Report
   
   Type Problem Additional Information
   Dir  No Data Path element name: SUNWmlib
   Dir  No Name Filenum: 7
   File No Data Path element name: vmd.uds
   File No Data Path element name: bpcompatd.uds
   File No Name Filenum: 8356
   Dir  No Name Filenum: 8374
   
   NOTE: The "Inode" column has been dropped, the contents of the "Problem"
         column changed slightly (adding "NO" prior to "Name" or "Data")
         and the "Name" column has been relabeled "Additional Information".  
         The "Additional Information" column will list either the path
         element name associated with the inode, the filenum field that the
         catalog received for the inode, or a message that indicates a
         problem in retrieving this data.
   
   The new format for the Invalid Directory report is:
   
   Invalid Directory Report
   
           Inode   1st     1st   Last    Next    Next
   Index   Index   Child   Dir   Child   Index   Dir Name
     9       3       2F    11     11D     -1F    -1 SUNWmlib
   
   The "Inode" column was relabeled "Inode Index" since is not the inode
   number, but rather an index into a temporary file in which inode
   information is stored while the backup is in process.
   
   The new format for the Invalid File report is:
   
   Invalid File Report
   
   Index    Inode Index    Next Index    Name
   2364     12180          2368F         Report.doc
   
   The changes noted above for the Invalid Directory report apply to the
   Invalid File report.

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

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.

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

Description:
   If backup jobs and synthetic/duplicate jobs were in progress simultaneously,

Etrack Incident = ET1322803
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1266944
Titan cases:  281-351-695 281-459-396

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

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

Description:
   A change was made to to correct an issue that caused NBPEM to crash during
   an upgrade from NetBackup 6.5 to 6.5.3. The crash would happen in a

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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).

Etrack Incident = ET1384919

Description:
   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.

   have run and created the streams file information, immediate execution of
   the schedule will fail with a 200 status and scheduled execution never
   happens. This is due to missing streams file information.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, run a non-synthetic backup after adding the
   synthetic schedule.

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:
   DNS lookup elapsed time: : 30 0x0000001e
   
   The elapsed time is in seconds.

   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

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.

   it then sends a signal to bpbrm allowing the cancel to work properly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1187864

Description:
   The stream discovery was not honoring the preprocess interval.  A change
   was made to the stream discovery to honor the preprocess interval on a

Etrack Incident = ET1180939

Description:
   The new Preserve multiplexing option is available to preserve
   multiplexing for tape-to-tape duplication within a storage lifecycle.
   This option option works best in environments where duplicating backups
   to lifecycle destinations serves to vault backups and where the

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

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

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

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

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

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

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, do not use a ";" character in the
   -snapshot_method_args argument.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1051426 ET1199018

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

Description:
   After catalog recovery, the NetBackup scheduler was suspended. NetBackup

Etrack Incident = ET1159607

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1209325

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

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

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

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

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

Etrack Incident = ET1213670

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

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

Description:
   JobPolicies were not visible in NOM for a Solaris 10 X64-managed server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1201414

Description:
   Fixed a problem with taking a snapshot with a true device name on Solaris.
   Devices with a namespace like the following could not be supported.
   
     /devices/pci@1d,700000/fibre-channel@1,1/fp@0,0/ssd@w50060e801029f700,12:
     c,raw

Etrack Incident = ET1219038

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

Description:
   It was possible that after a duplication was started bptm could be delayed
   by mounting issues or something similar. In this case it might be delayed
   long enough for bpdm to attempt to connect to bptm over the socket that it
   expects to be available, and timeout before bptm has a chance to create the
   socket. The lack of vnet connection retries caused this scenario to fail.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1219898
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1220320

Etrack Incident = ET1202383

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

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

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

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

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1209391

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

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

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

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

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

Etrack Incident = ET1226849

Description:
   The bpfrag command used to replace a fragment record fails with a
   "no entity found" found error.

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

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

Description:
   In an IBM RS/6000 system the volume snapshot information is cached as
   part of a select call and then use it in a make operation. If only one
   target has "maintain snapshot for instance recovery" set then during a
   second backup, the delete call for the previous image and the create call
   of new image were being interleaved. This resulted in a backup failure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1225755

Description:
   The state details were not being shown for jobs that were run outside of
   NBJM's control, such as bpverify, bpduplicate, bpimport, etc..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1229830

Description:
   The device allocator (DA) would not respect a NetBackup 5.1 host's

Titan cases:  290-061-961

Description:
   When forking a child process to call lstat/lstat64 to detect an unavailable
   NFS mount, the case where kill(child) returns errno ESRCH was not properly
   handled. When ESRCH is returned by kill(child) it is assumable that the
   child exited on its own accord.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1229773

Description:
   A change has been made to address an issue that would cause NBJM to crash
   on a shutdown.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1231401

Description:
   Storage subsystems from the SMcli -d -i command's output was not being
   fetched correctly and lead additional failures. Incorrect logic of
   retrieving the data was the cause of this issue.

Etrack Incident = ET1176199
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1117350
Titan cases:  220-099-084 281-168-660

Description:
   ACS mounts would intermittently fail with a DISMOUNT failure.

Additional Notes:
   LTO drives now can take up to 15 minutes to come ready with tapes. Because
   of this, a change wasmade to acsd to allow for a 15 minute timeout on mount.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1219001
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1130589
Titan cases:  290-822-170

Description:
   An NBAC upgrade fails during a patch install with the following message:
   
   ERROR:  NetBackup Access Control upgrade has failed and must be run
   manually (Error Code 38).  Run "/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpnbaz
   -Upgrade" after this installation completes.

Workaround:
   If you encounter this issue, run "bpnbat -login" as root/Administrator
   before the patch installation or before you manually execute the command
   "bpnbaz -upgrade".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1185547

Description:
   Deletion of certain machine types would not clean up all of the references
   to that machine in the database.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1231294
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1019103
Titan cases:  290-706-957

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

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

   An NBAC user would not see the node for a licensed feature in the user
   interface.

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

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

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

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

Description:
   The state details of jobs like bpduplicate (for example, not started using
   NBJM) was not cleared when it went from a QUEUED state to a ACTIVE state.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1193274
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1188782
Titan cases:  281-258-571

Description:
   Shared memory was not disabled during an encrypted database backup. This
   caused backups to not be encrypted.

Associated Primary Etrack = ET1177238
Titan cases:  290-881-887

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

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

   from a NAS snapshot backup.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1023503

Description:
   Authorization support in NBSL for services and processes information was
   not available.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1234749

Description:
   A change has been made to ensure that the duplication manager always adds
   pending copies for all destinations (even if the destination is INACTIVE)
   into EMM.  In addition, a copy will not be considered for duplication if
   it is INACTIVE in every session.

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

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

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

Description:
   PrevPoolName was being set even if the pool was changed manually. A change
   has been made to correct this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1216897

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

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

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

Additional Notes:
   An improper shutdown of the NetBackup services caused the problem images.
   When shut down normally, incomplete backup images cannot occur.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1235448

Description:
   NBJM crashed on shutdown when there were pending requests in the Callback
   queue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1177789
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1163418
Titan cases:  240-659-059

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

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

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

Description:

Etrack Incident = ET1236418
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1230008
Titan cases:  290-908-260 240-730-144

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

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

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

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

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

Description:
   The message given by a hot catalog backup job in the Activity Monitor
   was confusing. It said, "Offline catalog backup FAILED". A change was made
   to the message to avoid confusion.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1236185
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1217146
Titan cases:  311-824-283

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

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

Etrack Incident = ET1236042
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1225889
Titan cases:  320-091-983

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

Description:
   bpplinfo and bpadm would crash if the policy type was NBU-Catalog and the

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

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

Workaround:
   Do not use image indexing.

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

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

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

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

Etrack Incident = ET1238594
Titan cases:  220-220-209

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

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

Etrack Incident = ET1223956

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

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

Description:
   A change has been made to enable bpclusterutil to log its actions to aid
   troubleshooting during isCluster, isActive, addSvc, deleteSvc, enableSvc,

Etrack Incident = ET1232394

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

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

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

Description:
   The NetBackup Resourse Broker (NBRB) does not guarantee spans have top

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

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

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

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

Description:
   Job Manager performed stream discovery (calling bpmount on the client)
   without checking preprocess interval. Then, when it attempted to process

   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 = ET1072317

Description:
   The format of EMC Clariion LUNs would fail if the hostname was
   not exactly same as was registered on the Clarrion array because
   the logic of the hostname was case sensitive. A change has been
   to ensure the hostname comparison logic is no longer case
   sensitive.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1110605
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1094524
Titan cases:  240-610-300

Description:
   If the NetBackup Job Manager (nbjm) crashed for some reason, a job
   from the new nbjm could join a multiplexed group created by the old
   nbjm. This, in some extreme scenarios, would cause media to be
   over-written.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1077693

Description:
   A change has been added that makes catalog queries for processed
   images more efficient.  This change ensures that large numbers of

   once every 14 days.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1094558

Description:
   Under NetBackup Access Control (NBAC)and during a catalog restore,
   error messages would appear in the debug logs because of missing
   permissions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1102639

Description:
   A restore of a SAN client would potentially hang.  The bptm processes
   on the server would complete, but the bpbkar process on the client
   would remain active.
   

Workaround:
   To resolve this issue, on the media server, create the following
   file:
   
   /usr/openv/netbackup/WAIT_TO_CLOSE
   
   and enter a value in the file for the number of seconds for bptm
   to wait prior to terminating to allow the client to read all of
   the data.  A value of 60 should be sufficient.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1093595

Description:
   When trying to view media using the NetBackup-Java Administration
   Console, you would receive a time-out and NOM would report the
   server as being down.  The root cause of this problem was that
   too many threads in NBSL were busy collecting client NetBackup
   versions.  Changes have been made to correct this issue.
   
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1103786

Description:
   A change was made to resolve an issue that caused a NetBackup

Etrack Incident = ET1053712
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1044565
Titan cases:  290-777-895

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

Description:
   When upgrading from NetBackup 6.0 to NetBackup 6.5, Enterprise
   Media Manager (EMM) data for SnapVault and NearStore disk

   last drive always failed a mount request and the syslog showed
   tldd/tldcd trying to mount drive "-128".
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1099020

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

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1106918

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Titan cases:  220-102-189

Description:
   When vault tried to suspend media that was given an application
   cluster name instead of the active node name, the operation failed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1144319
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1142577
Titan cases:  311721921

Description:
   NetBackup 6.5 was not using the NUMBER_DATA_BUFFERS_DISK entry.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1141844

Description:
   A change has been made to address deadlock issues in NBSL.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1139701

Description:
   A parent job can remain active more than 24 hours after both
   children jobs completed.

Workaround:
   If a failed multistreamed job fails and is manually restarted,
   do not attempt to restart the resulting job.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1145202

Description:
   When using the LUN reserve command an issue with a corrupt DMP
   cache resulted in two paths for the DMP node (Disk_7) when there
   should have been only one path.  When obtaining the UDID a
   corrupt DMP cache produced an invalid path that was used as the
   active path to issue the reservation instead of the correct path.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1139621

Description:
   Bpduplicate was not setting the affinity ID when making a media
   reservation request for a spanned duplication.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1117736

Description:
   Changes have been made to correct a core file that was generated
   because of a login failure.  This random failure was seen using the
   NetBackup-Java Administration Console and it did not affect Windows
   platforms.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146745
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1145215
Titan cases:  220-118-313

Description:
   The expiration manager expires more than the expected number of images
   if any of the images have fragment(s) that are greater than or equal
   to 2GB.
   
   1. After a volume or disk pool gets a HWM (High Water Mark) event and
   after the expiring images have passed the try_to_keep date (first pass
   of expiration), the volume size should decrease to the LWM (Low Water
   Mark).
   
   If the volume size does not decrease to the LWM and if any of the
   volume's total_capacity or free_capacity is greater than or equal to
   2GB, then the expiration manager MAY not attempt to expire any of the
   other images even though they were marked as "eligible_for_expiration".
   
   This may cause volumes to not go below the HWM or the LWM even though
   there are "eligible_for_expiration" images.
   
   2. If any of the eligible_to_expire image fragment sizes are greater
   than or equal to 2GB, then the expiration manager may expire more than
   the required images at a HWM event for a volume in an attempt to get
   the volume size below the LWM.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1130840

Description:
   Consider a scenario of a duplicate job of multiple images that
   have a disk volume in common. Allocation for that disk volume
   was not held until the job was done using that disk volume if
   one of the images spans from that disk volume to another. This
   would make the job deadlock against itself.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1146673
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1143471
Titan cases:  281-221-795

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Titan cases:  281-245-969

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

Description:
   Processes would hang when an interrupt occurred during some socket
   writes.

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

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

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

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

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

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