From long history, we have all different Netbackup license keys from 6.5 to 7.7. Some of them even discontiued. Is there any way VERITAS/Symantec can help to upgrade all Netbackup to the same version and new names?
thank you !
Solved! Go to Solution.
You would need to involve a certified Symantec consultant to have someone assist with server renaming (specifically Master server name).
Read this Technote on migration/renames and merging of environments: http://www.veritas.com/docs/000026956
Symantec/Veritas Technical support do not typically get involved in upgrading customers NetBackup systems (unless there are technical issues with that process).
If you have an account manager you may wish to get them involved.
Also Check out the following technotes to make sure your existing OS and Hardware is compatible before upgrading.

NetBackup Installation & Upgrade Checklist: https://sort.veritas.com/checklist/install
Please clarify - do you have multiple master servers at older versions that you want to transfer their catalog to one new master server?
Is that where the new hostname concept comes in?
Or do you want to upgrade several netbackup masters and update their name at the same time?
