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