I'm very pleased to announce that the next Release Updates for NetBackup 52x0 Appliances is now available!

NetBackup 5200/5220/5230 Appliances 2.5.4 is the equivalent Appliance patch release to NetBackup 7.5.0.7.

It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from 7.5.0.1 through 7.5.0.6. In addition, this release contains almost 400 additional fixes (bringing the total fixes in 7.5.0.6 to well over 2000!) including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects.

Information about 2.5.4 and download links are available here:

NetBackup Appliance 2.5.4 Patch (for NetBackup 5200, 5220 and 5230)
 http://symantec.com/docs/TECH211140

The 2.5.4 Update can only be applied to an Appliance already running at version 2.5 or above.

To check to see if your particular Etrack is resolved in 2.5.4 (NetBackup 7.5.0.7), please refer to both sets of Release Notes:
