NetBackup 5200/5220/5230 Appliances 2.5.3 is the equivalent Appliance patch release to NetBackup 7.5.0.6.  New 5230s will ship with 2.5.3 installed.

It is a cumulative release containing fixes and content from 7.5.0.1 through 7.5.0.5. In addition, this release contains almost 600 additional fixes (bringing the total fixes in 7.5.0.6 to over 1700!) including the most commonly downloaded EEBs, several customer escalations, and internal engineering defects.

It also contains a firmware update to resolve the issue described in TECH207318.
