Can you upgrade Netbackup 6.5.3 client to 7.1 without uninstalling?

I was told by a symantec tech that we should uninstall the existing 6.5.3 client, reboot and install 7.1.   I have a few hundred clients to update so it would be much easier to just script and upgrade.     I can't find any documentation that says you have to remove the existing client and I have been given not 100% correct info before.     Does anybody know for sure if this is the mandatory process?   I could test it but thought I would just check first.

  • No need to uninstall.... I have been upgrading servers and clients since version 3.1 and never has there been a need to uninstall to upgrade to next version.
