PPC64 Clients

HI

Does anybody have an idea of when Netbackup will have PPC64 for Linux support? I heard a product manager from MEA say they already signed something with IBM to do this so it WILL BE in version 8.x. Is this something that's in a current BETA?

Best Regards

William

Re: PPC64 Clients

Hi William

I cannot find a list of proliferations in the 8.1 Beta documents. It also does not contain compatibility lists. I guess that will only be available when 8.1 goes GA.
Seems the only way to find out is to download and install the Beta binaries in a test environment (or at least go through the Client install script).

The registration site is here: https://vxbeta.veritas.com

Not sure if the will take on new beta testers at this late stage (rumour has it that GA is less a month away), but worth a try.
