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

NetBackup 7.5.0.7 is the seventh (and currently planned to be last) maintenance release for NetBackup 7.5.  It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from 7.5.0.1 through 7.5.0.6. In addition, this release contains over 400 additional fixes (bringing the total fixes in 7.5.0.7 to well over 2000!) including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects.

NetBackup 7.5.0.7 includes the following proliferations and enhancements:

  • VDDK 5.1 U1
  • JRE 7 Update 25

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 7.5.0.7.)

Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that 7.5.0.7 contains all product fixes included in 7.5.0.1, 7.5.0.2, 7.5.0.3, 7.5.0.4, 7.5.0.5 AND 7.5.0.6.  If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the 7.5.0.7 maintenanace release without installing 7.5.0.1, 7.5.0.3, 7.5.0.4, 7.5.0.5 or 7.5.0.6.  In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying 7.5.0.7!
