Planning for an upgrade Additional steps required for upgrade of Solaris SPARC with MSDP
If the NetBackup installer still does not detect the MSDP configuration, you must launch the conversion manually. More information about this topic is available. See “Converting the MSDP metadata during an upgrade to NetBackup 7.6” on page 85. About the migration phases The image metadata migration begins after NetBackup 7.6 has started. The image migration occurs in two phases as follows: This phase is initiated automatically after the upgrade steps have been completed, when the first instance of the nbstserv process runs. Note: Phase 1 migration is only performed if the upgrade is from a pre-NetBackup 7.5 environment. The following images are migrated during this phase: ■ All SLP controlled images ■ All staged DSSU images Phase 1 migration This phase is initiated automatically based on the nbpem scheduled image clean-up jobs, or you can initiate it manually to speed up the migration process. For pre-NetBackup 7.5 environments, this phase migrates all of the images that were not migrated in phase 1. For NetBackup 7.5. x environments, this phase migrates the DB2, Oracle, and SQL Server images again to gather more information specific to the 7.6 release. Phase 2 migration Note: The migration phases can run in any order and may also overlap. About operational restrictions during the image metadata migration During the image metadata migration, certain NetBackup and OpsCenter operations may prevent a successful image metadata migration. Other NetBackup operations are also affected and may report errors while the image metadata migration is in progress. 26 Planning for an upgrade About the migration phases
The following describes the guidelines that you should follow before the upgrade and during the image metadata migration. The following also describes expected NetBackup operational behavior during the image metadata migration. ■ Disable OpsCenter data collection. If you use OpsCenter, before you start the upgrade, disable data collection for the master server. Do not activate data collection for the server until after phase 1 and phase 2 of the image metadata migration have completed. More information about how to disable OpsCenter data collection is available. NetBackup OpsCenter Administrator's Guide . ■ Do not perform any catalog backup or catalog recovery operations until after phase 1 and phase 2 of the image metadata migration have completed. ■ Minimize the use of any NetBackup commands that query the NetBackup catalog until after phase 2 of the image metadata migration has completed. Such commands include but are not restricted to bpimage and bpimagelist . During the migration, these types of commands consume resources that cause them to run inefficiently and also slow the migration process.
