NetBackup Appliance Maintenance Release 2 is now available

Level 5

NetBackup Appliance Maintenance Release 2 (MR2) and release notes are now available at the following link:

3.2 and later customers can upgrade directly to MR2.

All 5.0 customers are strongly recommended to install MR2 as soon as possible.

If upgrading from a pre-5.0 release, upgrade to MR2 and not 5.0.

If upgrading from MR1, MR1 SP1 or MR1 SP2, disable SDCS Policy before upgrading to MR2. MR2 is updated 5.0 with identical supported upgrade paths.


Level 5
Employee MR2 upgrade files were pulled from Veritas Download Center on February 10 because some customers experienced upgrade failure from MR1. The upgrade failure is due to an intermittent race condition which prevents InfoScale services from being started by Symantec Data Center Security (SDCS) Policy. Workaround is to disable SDCS Policy *before* upgrading from MR1 to MR2. This issue has been fixed in upcoming MR3 (which is expected to be available in early March)
