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

NetBackup 7.5.0.5 is the fifth maintenance release for NetBackup 7.5.  It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from 7.5.0.1 through 7.5.0.4. In addition, this release contains almost 400 additional fixes (bringing the total fixes in 7.5.0.5 to over 1100!) including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects.

NetBackup 7.5.0.5 includes the following proliferations and enhancements:

  • vSphere 5.1 Support - Consuming VDDK 5.0 U1
  • VMware backup host is now supported on the following operating systems:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 x64
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 x64
  • Bare Metal Restore is now supported on the following operating systems:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
    • Oracle Linux 5.7
    • Oracle Linux 6.3
  • DB2 10.1 Support (streaming support only; snapshot backup/restore is not supported)

To download 7.5.0.5, please visit the following page:

This is a MAINTENANCE Release for NetBackup (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 7.5.0.5.)

Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that 7.5.0.5 contains all product fixes included in 7.5.0.1, 7.5.0.2, 7.5.0.3 AND 7.5.0.4.  If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the 7.5.0.5 maintenanace release without installing 7.5.0.1, 7.5.0.3 or 7.5.0.4.  In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying 7.5.0.5!

To check to see if your particular Etrack is resolved in NetBackup 7.5.0.5, please refer to these Release Notes:

To Whom It May Concern;

 

The URL for UNIX/Linux client is broken. Please fix this, so that we may download and update our software.
