Nice video.

I'd like to point out two things.

First, on the 7.x Upgrade portal (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH74584), under the NetBackup 7.5 Key Notes, step 5 mentions the NetBackup 7.5 Upgrade Guide (http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5198).  This is NOT the same as the Installation Guide and I highly recommend reviewing this guide for additional information on the catalog migration that occurs when upgrading to NBU 7.5.  NetBackup 7.5.0.1 (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH184314) has important fixes for this migration and it may be necessary to install this maintenance update as part of your upgrade process.

Lastly, also on the 7.x Upgrade portal, the text immediately prior to the NetBackup 7.5 section mentions SORT (Symantec Operations Readiness Tools).  I highly recommend using this site prior to starting your upgrade for system requirements, documentation, and compatibility information:   https://sort.symantec.com/checklist/install

Please do not forget to install the EEB (hotfix) and perform the Catalog Image MetaData Migration Phase 1 and 2, right after the upgrade.

Patch to 7.5.0.1 instead of using EEB.
