I recently upgraded from 6.5.5 to 7.0.1. We have also introduced a few new media servers, and are configuring them for OST. I ran accross some wierd output on an nbdevquery -liststs...

 

[root@******* admincmd]# ./nbdevquery -liststs
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *MEDIA SERVER* BasicDisk 5
V6.5.5 *DD580* DataDomain 9
V6.5.5 *DD580* DataDomain 9
V6.5.5 *DD880* DataDomain 9
V6.5.5 *DD880* DataDomain 9
V6.5.5 *DD880* DataDomain 9
[root@******* admincmd]# 
 
The media servers in the list are a mix of 6.5.5 and 7.0.1 but all show as V6.5.5? Should I be worried about this?
 
Thanks,

What does "nbemmcmd -listhosts -verbose" report?

I see exactly the same thing on an NBU 7.0 test rig I have here. I suspect that it's purely hard-coded information in nbdevquery (strings nbdevquery shows a bunch of V6.5.5 occurances) and is probably reflective of a shared code-base between 6.5.x and 7.x.

Since storage servers also show up in this list (such as DataDomain), which don't have NetBackup Software installed, I certainly don't think it's reflective of the version it *thinks* it is running.
