NetBackup compressed images and upgrade from 7.1 to 7.5

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are planning to upgrade from NBU 7.1.0.4 to 7.5.0.6

Catalog compression is enabled for NetBackup, we have a 190GB drive using about 100GB of space for the images, however the uncompressed size of the images is close to 230GB.  My concern is that if the upgrade uncompresses these images we will run out of space, so my question is; does the upgrade process uncompress these images? 

Many thanks

The upgrade process wond't uncompress the images, so you'll be fine.

I would recommend though, at a future point, increasing the disk you use for the catalog.  It can be very frustrating if you need a restore urgently and have a compressed catalog.

Good luck with the upgrade!

Thanks for the reply, I thought as much but the upgrade guide doesn't mention either way.

Here's hoping for a nice smooth upgrade process :-)
