Nice! 

Noticed i can download it from vems portal.

Will it soon be available to patch directly from the Backup Exec servers "menu >installation and licencing > veritas update"?

I've been told that 20.4 is now available via Veritas Update.

Re: Backup Exec 20.4 now available

Is there a new agent for this version also or is it staying the same as 20.3?

Re: Backup Exec 20.4 now available

@pearsonkcc

"Most" patches/updates require update of remote agents.

You can always view Release Notes/Readme etc to confirm.

Re: Backup Exec 20.4 now available

Hi,

after a few weeks of testing and living with the BE 20.4 Relase i can say ..

This Releae is grap, still buggy. 
Features are not working, still the same bugs as usual.

Support has no idea, what the developers did here ..
