Liebe Mitglieder der User Group,

das SORT Portal ist seit gestern mit den Inhalten für NetBackup 7.6 aktualisiert, d.h. die aktuellen Upgrade Checklisten können erstellt werden und man kann die verschiedenen Abhängigkeiten aus den Compatibiltätslisten in einer zentralen Stelle prüfen.

Anbei ein kleiner Einblick in die Arbeiten und die Verbesserungen:

Thanks Andreas!

Why German when your English is perfectly fine?

Dear members of the User Group
 
the SORT portal has been updated yesterday with the contents of NetBackup 7.6, ie the current upgrade checklists can be created and you can check the various dependencies of the Compatibility lists in a central location.
 
Enclosed is a small insight into the work and improvements:

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows

Hi Marianne,

I think he posts that in German because it is a post for the German NetBackup usergroup and Andreas is our best contact to Symantec engineering/technical staff :-)

For some of us it is much easier to write and discuss in our native language than translating everything into English - sorry for that. But I see that you're translating most of that with google translate - so thank you so much for your comments (we spoke about that last week at our meeting in Munich)! That was really fine!

Kind regards

Achim (founder of the German NetBackup usergroup)
