AIR replication between different NBU releases

Hello there,

Can I perform AIR replication between 2 Netbackup release?

I am going to be upgrading my both appliances soon but the upgrade will be spread out between 3-4 weeks. Can I have one appliance on 7.6.0.1 and other on 2.5.2 performing AIR replication?

 

Thanks,

thanks for the comments but I dont think I follow - 

If a backup image from NBU 7.5.3 (primary) domain is AIR'ed to NBU (dr) 7.6.0.1 domain, then I should be able to recover that backup image from 7.6.0.1 domain irrespective of what NBU release is running on 7.5.3 domain.

If you could please help clarify, that would be great.

thanks,
