NetBackup Hardware Compatibility Documentation: Device Mappings Files 
  • NetBackup uses device mappings files to add new device support, and to enable certain cloud and OpenStorage functionality. The latest version of these files is included in NetBackup release updates and is also available for download independently on the Veritas support site. This file is updated whenever new device support is needed independent of NetBackup release updates.
  • Veritas recommends downloading and installing the latest device mappings files package:
    - Before configuring a cloud solution with the Cloud Configuration Wizard. If your cloud solution is listed in the recent additions below, check to see that the version of device mappings you're running is at that level or later. If you're running an older version, download and install the latest package to permit configuration of the cloud solution.
    - Before configuring an OpenStorage storage server for Accelerator or Targeted A.I.R.. If your OST solution is listed in the recent additions below, check to see that the version of device mappings you're running is at that level or later. If you're running an older version, download and install the latest package to permit configuration of the OST functionality.
    - Before discovering and configuring devices with the Device Configuration Wizard. If your configuration contains a new device listed in the recent additions below, check to see that the version of the device mappings you're running is at that level or later. If you're running an older version, download and install the latest package to properly configure the device.
  • The first table below contains links to the current versions of the device mappings file packages, along with a list of support added with current and recent versions. The second table lists the version of the device mappings file released with NetBackup 7.7 GA and each subsequent Release Update.
