This 22.214.171.124 install has numerous limitations and this client package DOES NOT support the following functionality/capabilities of the NetBackup Windows client:
· System State Backup. Only file system backup will work properly. So data backup is a “yes”, but DR is a “no”.
·Granular backup of Active Directory is not supported with this package, however non-Granular Active Directory and full backup are supported.
· Restoring files backed up from an NTFS file system, to an ReFS file system, and vice versa is not supported.
· Agent support is not available with this package. For example, no SQL Server agent support.
· There is no BMR support with this package.
· There is no NBAC (VxAT/VxAZ) support with this package.
· No new Windows 8/2012 features are supported with this package. For example, no support for NTFS deduplication file system.
This package provides basic backup and restore functionality for file systems (NTFS and ReFS) only and can be used in NetBackup domains running NetBackup 126.96.36.199 and above
PLEASE NOTE : The same rules of patch levels between the Master / Media/ and clients still apply.
