Get ready for a newer version of NetBackup Virtual Appliance (5.0)
Procedure Overview:
  
Compatibility between NetBackup versions 
  • For compatibility between major versions, the latest available release of NetBackup is compatible with media servers and clients that run a release of NetBackup that is up to one major version behind. However, this compatibility ceases to be supported in any configuration once the previous major version has reached its End of Support Life.
    For information on Veritas End of Life Policy, refer to https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000116439
  • NetBackup does not support any scenario where a media server or client runs a software release update version that is higher than that of their Master server.
    For more information, refer to the NetBackup Release Notes and the NetBackup Upgrade Guide: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000116412

  • Other general rules for compatibility:
    • OpsCenter/OpsCenter Analytics must always be running the same or higher Dot-Zero or Single-Dot or Double-Dot release as the master servers in the environment.
    • All components (master, media, client, console, and agent) on an individual system must be at the same version.
    • Backup images created under an older version of NetBackup will always be recoverable with a newer version of NetBackup
    • A new feature may not be functional until the master, media and client are updated.
    • Administration Consoles cannot be at an earlier version than the NetBackup server version they connect to via the "change server" functionality in the console

Configuring Cloud Solutions with NetBackup CloudCatalyst Appliances
  • The table below shows when a NetBackup cloud configuration and device mappings RPM package is required for configuring cloud providers with NetBackup CloudCatalyst Appliances. "Included in release" means that version of the NetBackup Appliance software contains the information needed for configuring that cloud provider, so installing an RPM is not required.
  • Configuration for the cloud storage provider must be done using the Cloud Storage Configuration wizard in the NetBackup Administration Console. After this configuration is completed, you must manually create a backup policy for the deduplication (MSDP) pool catalog. For details, see the "NetBackup 52xx Appliance Initial Configuration Guide".

Cloud Storage Solutions 
  • NetBackup Cloud Storage plug-ins enable Veritas NetBackup to access Cloud Storage Solutions. Either the storage vendor or Veritas provides a software plug-in, which is installed on each NetBackup Media Server that is connected to the cloud solution.
  • NetBackup Cloud support information is listed in the tables below, organized by vendor. These tables provide information on supported versions of plug-ins and functionality, and other important notes about the hardware and its compatibility.
Cloud Storage - Considerations
    Subject Notes
    Support assumptionsFor details on supported operating systems, please refer to the "NetBackup 8.0 - 8.x.x Operating System Software Compatibility List" .
    1. In the vendor compatibility tables below, the column "NetBackup Version Containing Plug-in" indicates the NetBackup version (8.2 or later) at which that cloud storage solution was first supported.
    2. Cloud support on Windows platforms requires Windows 2008 R2 or later.
    3. Community-distributed Ceph solutions are supported when using the Red Hat string. Since these solutions rely on the community, support for any issues encountered may be delayed or unavailable, depending on the nature of the issue.
    4. NetBackup supports AWS Outposts. For more information, please refer https://www.veritas.com/news-releases/2019-12-03-veritas-tested-and-validated-for-aws-outposts.
    Configuration considerations1. NetBackup is configured to trust a number of well-known public Certificate Authorities (CA) related to Cloud storage. However, there are instances where, for internal purposes, you may need to add your own self-signed CA certificate. For information on adding a self-signed CA certificate, please refer to "Cloud Storage Configuration: How To Add a Self-Signed CA Certificate" .
    2. NetBackup-provided Cloud connectors are not supported with IPv6, unless noted otherwise. Configuring these plug-ins with IPv6 may result in unpredictable behavior.

    Connection Method Description
    Direct-attachData travels from disk to a tape device on the same NDMP host, or from disk to tape device on a SAN. Backup data is NOT sent over local network. NOTE: The tape drives must be in NDMP-type storage units.
    RemoteData travels from the NDMP host, across the local network to a NetBackup media server, to a storage unit connected to the NetBackup media server.
    3-wayData travels from disk on an NDMP host to a tape device on another NDMP host. Backup data is sent over the local network. NOTE: The tape drives must be in NDMP-type storage units.

Encryption and Security Solutions 
  • Encryption and security solution support information is listed below, organized by solution type.
NetBackup Key Management Service (KMS)
  • The NetBackup Key Management Service (KMS) feature is intended to support any tape drive with built-in hardware encryption capability that conforms to the SCSI T10 encryption standard. Each drive model listed in the following table has been tested in Veritas labs to verify that it works with NetBackup correctly, so Veritas recommends using only listed drives with the KMS feature. Refer to the Tape Drives section in this document for the list of platforms and interfaces on which each of the following drives is supported.
  • Note: KMS is supported on any tape library supported by NetBackup, provided the library vendor supports that library with any of the encryption-capable drives listed in the table below.

External Key Management Services using KMIP
  • External Key Management Services (EKMS) servers using KMIP are supported with NetBackup 8.3 and later.
External KMS - Considerations
    Subject Notes
    Configuration considerations1. EKMS is supported with AdvancedDisk, Cloud, MSDP, MSDP Direct Cloud Tiering, and Tape storage solutions supported by NetBackup.
    2. The EKMS server must be KMIP-based. Supported KMIP versions are 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and 2.0.
    3. NetBackup uses Symmetric Key objects stored on the EKMS server for data encryption.
    4. The EKMS server must use PEM formatted certificate-based authentication.
    5. The NetBackup primary server should be able to establish an outbound connection to the KMIP port on the EKMS server.

Single Sign-On using SAML
Single Sign-On using SAML - Considerations
    Subject Notes
    Configuration considerations1. To use SSO, you must have a SAML 2.0 compliant identity provider configured in your environment.
    2. Only one Active Directory (AD) or LDAP domain is supported for each primary server domain. This feature is not available for local domain users.
    3. Configuration of the Identity Provider (IDP) requires the NetBackup APIs or the NetBackup command nbidpcmd.
    4. SAML users cannot use the APIs. API keys are used to authenticate a user and therefore cannot be used with a SAML-authenticated user.
    5. Global logout is not supported.
  
NetBackup Future Platform and Feature Plans
  • Veritas is committed to providing the best possible data protection experience for NetBackup customers on the widest variety of platforms, operating systems, databases, applications, and hardware. Veritas is continuously reviewing NetBackup's support of these items to ensure the proper balance of supporting their General Availability release, the very latest versions of new software, hardware and introducing new features and functionality and maintaining support for existing and older versions of these products and NetBackup functionality. While Veritas is continually adding support for new features, platforms, operating systems, and applications, it may be also necessary to improve, replace, or remove support in NetBackup for lesser used, older features, functionality, software, OS, databases, applications, integration with other products, and hardware that are no longer supported or nearing their end of support life from the manufacturer from NetBackup Compatibility Lists.

    To better help its customers to plan for these upcoming changes to the support status of these items in NetBackup, Veritas will provide advanced notification as soon as possible as listed below. Veritas intends to list the older product functionality, features, hardware, OS, and 3rd party software products that will no longer be supported in the next release of NetBackup. If possible, these items are listed at least six months before that release.

    The information below lists certain features, functionality, 3rd-party and Veritas products, applications, databases, and OS/Platforms for which Veritas intends to replace with newer and improved functionality, or in some cases, discontinue without replacement. The last release of NetBackup to proliferate support of the item is provided. Technotes in the Notes column contain additional details about available replacement options. Where a major, minor or release update version is specified, the feature or platform is supported through the last Maintenance Update (patch) of that release. Where 'All' is specified, it is supported for all versions or variations of the family of the relevant or supported platforms.

    Check this site frequently for updated information for NetBackup. If an item listed below will cause significant business impacts, contact your Veritas Sales Account Team. Please note that the official NetBackup Support Lifecycle for your existing NetBackup product version won't be affected or altered in any way. For the official Veritas Support Lifecycle Policy of all NetBackup versions, see https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/terms/support-fundamentals.html.

    Information in the following table contains plans starting with NetBackup 7.5. For information concerning no longer supported platforms, consult the following section of the report.
