How can I get notification of releases?

How do I get notified when new releases of NetBackup or Backup Exec are released?

For example, NetBackup 7.1.0.3 just came out - how could I have know about that?

You need to go to :

You need to go to : http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=products

Next choose the Product you are interested in, such as NetBackup

On the right hand side you will see a menu, Under Product Support there is a Product Alerts link, follow that to register for alerts - your account on here should be valid on that site (if not create an account) - this alerts you to any issues with the product - there should be a sunscribe section.

You may also find that you need to go to the products Dwonloads Section and subscribe to that section as well to get alerts when new downloads are available

Hope this helps

Other alternatives...

Also on the same page(s) for Downloads are RSS feeds you could add to your Feeder/Reader.

Bookmark the landing pages for the NetBackup and Backup Exec landing pages. The latest product information is posted here.

Visit the forums regularly.

And the blog!

The Netting Out NetBackup blog also has a fairly low volume RSS feed you could subscribe to.  Look for the icon next to the blog title in the breadcrumb trail (grey bar).
