Netbackup upgrade

Hi Technical Support,

Good day!

We would like to ask some question, now we have Netbackup version 7.7 and planning to upgrade on Netbackup version 8.2, may we know if we can still restore our Netbackup 7.7 copy on Netbackup 8.2? and can you advise us what is the best way to upgrade the Netbackup version? is it need to upgrade the Netbackup for each version? or is it better to re-install the netbackup with new version of Netbackup 8.2?

Thank you!

Welcome to VOX!
Just one thing - this is a community forum, not Technical Support. 
Fellow product users try to assist one another here, and sometimes we have friendly Veritas employees who give advise.

Yes, you will always be able to restore backups from previous versions.


and can you advise us what is the best way to upgrade the Netbackup version? is it need to upgrade the Netbackup for each version? or is it better to re-install the netbackup with new version of Netbackup 8.2?

 


You can upgrade straight to version 8.2 from 7.7. 
(Upgrade - not re-install).

Extremely important that you read through the release notes upgrade documentation to understand the requirement for a new web-user and also security certificates that were introduced in version 8.1.x. 

Start here:

NetBackup 8.x Upgrade Portal

Be sure to follow the links to SORT and other documentation suggested in above article.

You can find links to all 8.2 docs in Handy NBU Links in my signature.
