This issue has been solved. See solution.

Does anyone have any information on a release date for NetBackup  We're dealing with the SQL 2008 bug in 7.1.  We can wait for the update if it's scheduled soon.  Otherwise we'll review the other options.  Thanks!

Do you have an open case with Symantec Support?

Has an eTrack been identified?

Did you escalate the call and ask for an EEB to be issued?

**** EDIT ****

Are you referring to this TN  ?

It says the following at the bottom of the TN:

Remove the 7.1 version of NetBackup from the client and install version 7.0.1.

If this workaround is unfeasible, please contact Symantec technical support, referencing this document ID and Etrack 2410298 to obtain an Emergency Engineering Binary (EEB) containing a fix for this issue.

Yes.  That's the TN I'm referring to.  Our server isn't under production yet, so the fix isn't needed right away.  And if the fix is included with as it also states in the TN, then I'd prefer to wait if the release is scheduled soon.

Ergo, does anyone have any information regarding the date of release for  If not, I'll be happy to explore these alternatives.

I guess will be released 3 or 6 months later from release.
