NetBackup Appliance Release 3.1.2 Important Notice

In recent weeks, Veritas has seen a spike of support cases related to the 3.1.2 upgrade. Although our support teams have been able to get customers back to a working state, the downtime required to fix the issues could exceed many of our customer's expectations. Although many appliances have upgraded successfully, the spikes in upgrade cases are concerning to us. To maintain the integrity of our upgrades, Veritas has pulled the 3.1.2 upgrade to evaluate the root cause of the failures and to fix them before more customers experience the same issues.

The 3.1.2 upgrade RPMs are temporarily unavailable from SORT. The links in this document that lead to the RPM files on SORT are currently disabled. At this time, Veritas cannot provide an ETA as to when the 3.1.2 upgrade RPMs will be available. For more details, please read
