Hello,


Deactivate all SLPs.

Deactivate all policies.

Deactivate all disk staging storage units

are the things that needs to take care while upgrading...

 
suspending the jobs or killing the job would be the one that you need to make a decission.. I would perfer to go will cancle all jobs and start a fresh new job after upgrade.. 
 
see the attached check list that i use my self while upgrade  which is  from the Netbackup 7.5 upgrade guide.

Nagalla,

thanks for your doc and reply.

Just want to understand, what is the reason we need to deactivate SLP and disk storage units?

there is a catalog chage in the Netbackup 7.5 and the catalog migration do happen when the netbackup is upgraded to 7.5 . 

there is no other backups should start before compleating the migration phase..

read the netbackup 7.5 upgrade doc from the below link providec by Marianne to understand about the catalog chage and the migration process..
