This is a MAINTENANCE Release for NetBackup (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 126.96.36.199.)
Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that 188.8.131.52 contains all product fixes included in 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 AND 22.214.171.124. If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the 126.96.36.199 maintenanace release without installing 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11. In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying 18.104.22.168!
