NetBackup 7.6.0.2 (NetBackup 7.6 Maintenance Release 2) is now available!

(Crossposted from the Netting Out NetBackup blog)

I’m extremely happy to announce that NetBackup 7.6.0.2 is now Generally Available!

NetBackup 7.6.0.2 is our first maintenance release for the NetBackup 7.6 line ("7.6.0.1" was our "7.6 GA" release). This release contains fixes to 568 issues including resolutions for most commonly downloaded EEBs, customer escalations, and critical internally found defects. 7.6.0.2 also provides several critical security fixes and many high-demand proliferations to our customers. The significant content of this release is:

  • Almost 200 customer-related defect fixes, including 12 issues highlighted in the 7.6 Late Breaking News
  • Security fixes - most notably, removal/update of all components making use of an OpenSSL version potentially affected by "Heartbleed"
  • Parity with 7.5.0.7 - if you were still waiting for a 7.5.0.7 fix to make it into the 7.6 line, here's your update!
  • Proliferations:
    • Oracle 12c
    • Hyper-V 2012 R2 w/File level GRT
    • VDDK 5.5 (I understand that some of you are interested in this one!)
    • FT Media Server SLES 11 SP3
    • BMR Proliferations (Solaris 11.1, Suse 11 SP2/SP3, Windows 2012/8, RHEL6 XEN)
  • Features
    • Amazon Cloud Non-US Regions Support (7.5 line parity)

To download 7.6.0.2, please visit the following page:

This is a MAINTENANCE Release for NetBackup (as opposed to a Release Update) - it can ONLY be applied on top of NetBackup 7.6 GA.  (If you are currently running 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.1.0.x, 7.5 OR 7.5.0.x, you will need to upgrade to 7.6 GA before you can apply 7.6.0.2.)

Sometimes IE will attempt to save them with .htm suffixes instead of .1of3, .2of3, .3of3 - if you can't try with another browser, you might need to right-click on the filename, select Save Target As... and then in the dialogue, rename it using its original suffix (change .htm to .1of3, for instance) before clicking on Save.

(Unless there's something REALLY wrong with those links!  Is anyone else having problems with them?)
