Does NetBackup 7.5 support clients at 6.5.5?
I have an existing AIX system with the latest 6.1 level plus updates, running NetBackup 6.5.5 which we know went out of support last year. We are planning to implement a new NetBackup server (possibly Windows) at the 7.5 version but need to know if the existing NetBackup clients at the 6.5 and 6.5.5 levels will still be supported by the new server at the 7.5 version? If yes, then is is simply a case of registering the client with the new server's name and/or IP address? If not, does that mean that we have to update all of our clients to some level of version 7 to be supported? Will we have to re-license the product at any time or will existing licensing be sufficient for the new setup?
