One of the major limitations, imho, of LiveUpdate is that it only allows minor version upgrades.  With 6.0->6.5 I think it was understandable as LiveUpdate was a new product but now with 7.0 I find it very disappointing that you cannot use LiveUpdate to move clients from 6.5->7.0.  I don't have any numbers to back this up but I would think a very significant portion, if not the majority, of NetBackup upgrades are major version to major version.  I think the usefulness of the product is very limited by not allowing major version upgrades and Symantec should consider adding this functionality.
