This is a MAINTENANCE Release for NetBackup (as opposed to a Release Update) - it can ONLY be applied on top of NetBackup 7.6.1. (If you are currently running 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.1, 7.1.0.x, 7.5, 7.5.0.x OR 7.6.0.x, you will need to upgrade to 7.6.1 GA before you can apply 184.108.40.206.)

2. Enterprise Vault 11.0.1 is supported on SQL Server 2014 with NetBackup 22.214.171.124.
What's listed as vSphere 2015 IS vSphere 6 support, and yes, it's available before VMware has announced the GA of vSphere 6. Pretty cool huh? You'll see more info about it when vSphere 6 finally goes GA. One thing's for sure, you won't be waiting on NetBackup to be ready in order to roll it out into production!
Could you show me where in release notes is somthing about Proliferations and Features: Red Hat 7 (Client/Cloud/Media/Master) because I don't see?
