How to confirm the most recent upgrade procedures to NB 7.0.1 for unix?

Created: 16 Aug 2013 | 4 comments

We are trying to do an upgrade from NB 6.5 to 7.0.1 for unix.  I see a document (link below) for an installation guide for 7.0 for Unix. Is this considered to be the upgrade document?  If so, is it the most recent document for this upgrade?  

Thank you for your input.

PLEASE skip 7.0 and go straight to or even best - go straight to

See NBU 7.x upgrade portal:

The installation guide for each version contains upgrade info.

You can find links to all supported NBU documentation in 'Handy NBU Links' in my signature.

At 7.0, there was no upgrade guide so that is the document.  Truthfully, you are highly encouraged to upgrade to 7.1 or 7.5 as the 7.0 version is very out of date.  There is no reason to step through 7.0. 

We try to encourage this in the current upgrade portal:

NetBackup 7.0
This version of NetBackup went GA in Febuary of 2010.  Customers considering this upgrade are encouraged to move to NetBackup 7.1 or 7.5.
