Upgrade NBU 6.5.6 to 7.5, media server(UNIX) with specific role of SAP backup and Data domain.
Firstly, Wish you all a blissful new year 2013 :)
I'm desperately in need to have a procedure document (Case study or Best practise) or guidance to upgrade our media server (UNIX) from NBU 6.5.6 to 7.5.

If anyone has worked on such a enviroment can share their procedure document or can guide me to understand the upgrade process it will be very helpful to me :)
I've tried SORT but couldn't make a head or tail out of it, for my current setup and additional function of Media server, since this project has been thrown in from no where and EOL for 6.x already done I'm left with no assistance apart from my trusted Symantec forum.
I'll await for the helping hands here :) Cheers !
