upgrade from 5.1 to 6.5.3

Level 5

can we have a direct upgrade from 5.1 MP7 to 6.5.3 or we need to do 6.5 and then patch it with the MP 4 or MP 3?


Level 6
Major changes between the two & it's better to be safe than sorry.

Welcome to the Veritas NetBackup (tm) 6.5 Upgrade Portal!

& especially the link within that:

Veritas NetBackup (tm) 5.x to NetBackup 6.5 Upgrade Guide, Version "D" (updated March 6, 2009) ...

More than likely you'll have to do it as you say (there is a full 6.5.4 package as opposed to upgrade but this is for 64-bit new installs on 2003/2008)

You can only upgrade to a "base" installation - that means 6.5.

After that, you can apply the 6.5.5 release update.  (I notice you said 6.5.3, but I would gently request you go with the latest and greatest, as it contains the most fixes and I'd hate to see you have to apply more sets of release updates than is absolutely necessary.  :)  )
