Netbackup 6.5.6 to 7.5 new hardware
I've got a slight issue. Current master/media (Windows 2003 32-bit) is running NB 6.5.6 and doesn't meet the miniumum hardware requirements to upgrade to 7.5. Purchased a new server which is running Windows 2008 standard 64-bit. I have performed a catalog backup on the current master and removed the server from the domain. I renamed the new 2008 server the same as the the old master and gave it the same IP address.
Here is where my problem starts. I was going to install 6.5.6 on the new server and then reocver the catalog, check all polcies etc to ensure operation and then upgrade to 7.5. However, I do not have the 64-bit verion of 6.5 only the 32-bit. Symantec tech support told me I should be able to install the 32-bit on the 2008 server as 6.5 is no longer available Tried and it keeps telling me to use a 64-bit version.
Any ideas how I can get around this? I know I can't recover a 6.5.6 catalog backup using 7.5. Thanks.
