Newer Red Hat Linux compilers used with NetBackup 8.1.2 The following platforms now use Red Hat Linux 6, update 8: ■ Linux Red Hat x86_64 ■ Linux zSeries Red Hat 64-bit ■ Debian Linux x86_64 Note: NetBackup 8.1.2 cannot be installed on these systems if the OS kernel is older than 2.6.32. The client names are now RedHat2.6.32, IBMzSeriesRedHat2.6.32, and Debian2.6.32. Linux device persistent binding changes Starting with NetBackup 8.1.2, the NetBackup Device Manager ( ltid ) uses persistent device paths for tape drives. Instead of /dev/nstXXX device paths, NetBackup uses /dev/tape/by-path/YYY-nst device paths. The paths persist across SAN interruptions. Upon NetBackup Device Manager ( ltid ) startup, /dev/nstXXX paths are converted to the equivalent /dev/tape/by-path/YYY-nst path . For more information, see the NetBackup Device Configuration Guide – Operating Systems – Linux chapter. BMR introduces secure communication support on AIX and HP-UX Starting with NetBackup 8.1.2, Bare Metal Restore (BMR) introduces secure communication support on AIX and HP-UX platforms. For more information, see NetBackup Bare Metal Restore Administrator’s Guide .

At that point, the following commands will no longer be available: ■ bp.kill_all ■ bpdown ■ bpclusterkill Please plan accordingly. The new command will be announced in future release notes and in the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide . Update cloud configuration file on the master server immediately after install or upgrade to NetBackup 8.1.2 If you use cloud storage in your NetBackup environment, you may need to update your cloud configuration file on the NetBackup master server immediately after you install or upgrade to NetBackup 8.1.2. If a cloud provider or related enhancement is not available in the cloud configuration file after upgrading to NetBackup 8.1.2, related operations will fail. Veritas continuously adds new cloud support to the cloud configuration files between releases. The cloud storage support included in the NetBackup 8.1.2 final build matches that which is contained in the cloud configuration package version 2.4.3. Updating your cloud configuration files is necessary only if your cloud storage provider was added to the cloud configuration package version 2.4.4 or newer. The following cloud support has been added to version 2.4.4 and later but was not included in the NetBackup 8.1.2 final build: ■ Amazon (S3) – China (Ningxia) region ■
