I'm very pleased to announce that the next Maintenance Release for NetBackup 7.5 is now available!

NetBackup, a software only Maintenance Release, is the third maintenance release for NetBackup 7.5. It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from (software-only) and (appliance-only). In addition, this release contains fixes to over 325 issues including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects. The significant content of this release is:

  • Solaris 11 master server, Bare Metal Restore server and OpsCenter Managed Server support
  • No new features in  However, some features that were delivered in previous maintenance releases are included: 
    • NetBackup for VMware on SLES – delivered in
    • PureDisk seeding utility – delivered in
    • Client Direct Whole Image Mode – delivered in
    • Multi-process nbostpxy for Client Dedupe – delivered in
  • Selective EEBs/Hotfixes which could not get into or
  • Other miscellaneous fixes across NetBackup

To download, please visit the following page: Download Links

This is a MAINTENANCE Release (as opposed to a Release Update) - it can ONLY be applied on top of NetBackup 7.5.  (If you are currently running 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.1, or 7.1.0.x, you will need to upgrade to 7.5 before you can apply

Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that contains all product fixes included in AND  If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the maintenanace release without installing  In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying!

May I have your comments about NBU 7.5 if you are using it. I plan to upgrade our 6.5.6 to either 7.1 or 7.5 but don't know if 7.5 is a good one to go with now.
