R u sure , of that you have DSSU in your environment, do not mix it with regular DSU (both are different)

If DSSU is not there, you can skip it

how about this? options 2

Deactivate disk staging storage units as follows:

Administration Console users the 'Staging schedule' is greyed out so we would need to use command line below (opyion 2)

 

On the master server, open the NetBackup

Administration Console.

From the tree on the left, expand NetBackup

Management > Storage Units.

In the right pane, double-click on a disk staging

storage unit.

When the Change Storage Unit dialog box

appears, select Staging Schedule.

When the Disk Staging Schedule dialog box

appears, click the Exclude Dates tab.

Select the date in the calendar that matches the

date of the system upgrade, then click OK. The

storage unit is then disabled on that date.

Click OK to close the Disk Staging Schedule

dialog box, then click OK to close the Change

Storage Unit dialog box.

Repeat these tasks for each disk staging storage

unit.

 

 

For command-line users

 

Enter the following command:

install_path\netbackup\bin\admincmd\

bpschedulerep schedulename -excl

mm/dd/yyyy

do we not need to deactivate when going from 7.1 to 7.5?

I am a newbie - I don't understand your first instructions.

If the steps in the upgarde guide show that you need to deactivate, then you do.

My example shows how to deactivate a DSSU, which is the question you asked.

My example was 'basic disk', you may have for example 'advanced disk' in which case you would change the -stype option to AdvancedDisk.

The commands reference guide covers the use of this command.

This command :

nbdevconfig -changestate -stype BasicDisk -state DOWN -dp basic_disk

'Deactivated' my BasicDisk storage unitwith the disk pool name of 'basic_disk'
