Per the NBAR compatibility

Per the NBAR compatibility list ( : 

a) will still work with NB 5.x, will break with NB 6.x
b) almost certainly. Have them talk with their Symantec account manager.
c) doubtful. see 'b'.

Their best bet is probably trying to talk their account manager into giving them a cut-rate VBR license because it's an upgrade. It's been too long since NBAR so I don't remember exactly how it was licensed - VBR goes per-client.

Good luck.
