You have 2 choices:

  1. Use catalog backup and restore to migrate to new OS (and hardware?) using existing NBU version, then upgrade to 7.5.
  2. Upgrade existing master to 7.5, then use catalog backup and restore to migrate to new OS.

If new OS is W2008 R2, you need to use 2nd option as R2 is only supported as from 7.x.

TN describing process:

Please also consult compatibility guides :

as well as Upgrade Portal:

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