Storage Foundation 5.0 MP3 and NetBackup

Created: 10 Apr 2009 • Updated: 23 May 2010 | 3 comments

I'm going to upgrade SF from 4.1 to 5.0 on a server that is also a NetBackup media server.  When I run the precheck I get notified that the currently installed versions of VRTSpbx and VRTSicsco are newer than the versions to be installed with SF 5.0.  Will SF 5.0 work with these newer packages?  Below are the versions.   Any help is appreciated.

Netbackup (currently installed) - VRTSpbx, VRTSicsco

SF 5.0 (to be installed, packages will not be installed) - VRTSpbx, VRTSicsco

Thank You!

Well that's a really tricky one to answer...

Honestly speaking I have seen people keeping their existing packages & not replacing them... that works...

In case you are not using Veritas Security services or else VRTSvail agent or VEA GUI for volume manager (thats what I remember from top of my head), I guess shouldn't be any problem...

Hope this helps...

VIAS ( ) can assist with upgrade operations. It is not yet integrated with NBU components but it will help you with all SF related packages and requirements.
