Are NBU 7.6.0.4 clients compatible with NBU Server 7.6.1.x?

I am preparing to upgrade our NBU 7.6.0.4 server to version 7.6.1.1.  All our clients, both Windows based (all 64-bit) and Linux (CentOS 5.5) are version 7.6.0.4.   Will the NBU 7.6.1.1 server be compatible with these agents?   I plan to upgrade all agents to version 7.6.1.x at some point, but if I can work with a 7.6.1.1 server while keeping the agents at 7.6.0.4 (minimal intrusion on servers that I don't want to have to reboot), then I would prefer to go that route for now.

One final question.


Which of the NBU 7.6.1 clients should I be using to install on CentOS Linux 5.x (5.5 in our particular case) and where would I find the installation instructions for that client?
