I'm very pleased to announce that the next Maintenance Release for NetBackup 7.5 is now available!

NetBackup 7.5.0.3, a software only Maintenance Release, is the third maintenance release for NetBackup 7.5. It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from 7.5.0.1 (software-only) and 7.5.0.2 (appliance-only). In addition, this release contains fixes to over 325 issues including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects. The significant content of this release is:

  • Solaris 11 master server, Bare Metal Restore server and OpsCenter Managed Server support
  • No new features in 7.5.0.3.  However, some features that were delivered in previous maintenance releases are included:          
    • NetBackup for VMware on SLES – delivered in 7.5.0.2
    • PureDisk seeding utility – delivered in 7.5.0.2
    • Client Direct Whole Image Mode – delivered in 7.1.0.4
    • Multi-process nbostpxy for Client Dedupe – delivered in 7.1.0.4
  • Selective EEBs/Hotfixes which could not get into 7.5.0.1 or 7.5.0.2
  • Other miscellaneous fixes across NetBackup

To download 7.5.0.3, please visit the following page:

This is a MAINTENANCE Release (as opposed to a Release Update) - it can ONLY be applied on top of NetBackup 7.5.  (If you are currently running 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.1, or 7.1.0.x, you will need to upgrade to 7.5 before you can apply 7.5.0.1.)

Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that 7.5.0.3 contains all product fixes included in 7.5.0.1 AND 7.5.0.2.  If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the 7.5.0.3 maintenanace release without installing 7.5.0.1.  In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying 7.5.0.3!

To check to see if your particular Etrack is resolved in NetBackup 7.5.0.3, please refer to these Release Notes:

Is there an OpenVMS MP 3 or 4?

 

According to this

 

Etrack Incident: 2745623
■ Description:
After an upgrade to NetBackup 7.5, OpenVMS backups fail for the bpcd and
bpbrm processes with a status code 229 and the following error message:
status: 229: events out of sequence - image inconsistency

 

Known issues have cropped up in 7.5

 

Thanks,

Chris
