This is a MAINTENANCE Release for NetBackup (as opposed to a Release Update) - it can ONLY be applied on top of NetBackup 7.5. (If you are currently running 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.1, or 7.1.0.x, you will need to upgrade to 7.5 before you can apply 220.127.116.11.)
Please note that maintenance releases are CUMULATIVE - that means that 18.104.22.168 contains all product fixes included in 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 AND 220.127.116.11. If you are currently running NetBackup 7.5, you may apply the 18.104.22.168 maintenanace release without installing 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206. In fact, if you are still running NetBackup 7.5, we would HIGHLY encourage applying 220.127.116.11!
To check to see if your particular Etrack is resolved in NetBackup 18.104.22.168, please refer to these Release Notes:
The NetBackup 7.5 Late Breaking News has also been updated to reflect newly released fixes in 22.214.171.124 for some of our highest visibility issues:
I read the README file in the Windows2012CLT package and i have a question about the following line :
Client Direct/Client Side Dedupe/MSDP/PDDO are not supported
Does it mean that we CANNOT do a backup on a Windows 2012 client using MSDP or ClientSide Dedup ?
It is always best practices to be at the latest patchset as each release contains fixes from the previous release. With that being said, always check the release notes and the compatibility guide BEFORE doing any upgrade. For example : 126.96.36.199 does support exchange 2013, however will not support GRT with exchange 2013. I know for sharepoint , the 188.8.131.52 includes a fix for status 2 backup failures.
