8.1 / 8.0.1 is still in Beta testing.

I received this email 2 days ago:

" NetBackup beta (8.0.1 Beta5) is available for download on the VxBeta ( website. "

NBU 8.1 is scheduled for GA release 9/26/2017... This was annouced at Veritas Vision.

Will 8.1 support VMWare Linux XFS file systems?

Re: Netbackup 8.1 Launch

No it will not. We asked the question about XFS at least not from a file level recovery perspective.

Re: Netbackup 8.1 Launch

Seems not.

See Table 12  'VMware guest operating systems supported for file-level recovery' in latest Statement of Support for NetBackup 7.x and 8.x in a Virtual Environment.

Table 13 shows XFS - Planned for a future release.
