Have a look at this 'Featured' post at the top of this forum page:

NetBackup Appliances 1.4.4 and 2.5.3 are now available!

Appliance version 2.5.3 is the equivalent of NBU

The above post contains links to documentation.

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows
Handy NBU Links

Mark_Solutions's picture is NBU so your appliance is running 2.0.3 at the moment

To go to you first need to apply 2.5 and then patch to 2.5.3 to get you to what is the equivalent of

If the appliance is a Master Server then you will need to have both patches downloaded and added to the incoming patches directory before you start as after 2.5 NetBackup will be disabled until you have applied 2.5.3

If it is not a Master you will need your Master to be upgarded first

Hope this helps
