Re: Netbackup For Exchange 2016 CU8

CU8 was just released. The Veritas proliferation commitment is 90 days to post support in the SCL.

You ask if you can back up anyway. Probably. NetBackup won't reject CU8 a priori. Database backup and restore is almost sure to work. I suggest you take a backup and try a restore to RDB.

GRT backup and restore works unless Microsoft changes the schema, as they did last spring with CU5. The only other time in the last 10 years that I can recall a schema change on an SP or CU that affected NetBackup was Exchange 2010 SP1.

You should move up to NetBackup 8.1 if you're going to use GRT. Otherwise, you need a patch for 7.7.3 or 8.0 due to the CU5 schema change.

Let us know how it goes.
