The End of Life (EOL) for NetBackup Master and Media Servers running on HPUX and AIX after NetBackup 8.1.1

Disclaimer: The End of Life (EOL) for NetBackup Master and Media Servers running on HPUX and AIX. This EOL does not apply to client support for either platform. These operating systems will no longer be supported commencing with the planned NetBackup release in mid CY2018.
Customers will need to migrate to a supported version of either a Linux or Solaris prior to attempting to upgrade to the planned End of Life release. To enable this NetBackup Engineering plans to release either a process or tool to assist customers in migrating from these platforms to a supported platform. Customers can also request a cost quote from Veritas Consulting services to perform the migration or if the customer has Business Critical Services (BCS) they can contract the BCS team for migration assistance.
Both platforms will remain supported on older versions of NetBackup and will follow the published Product End of Life Policy guidelines (https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000116439).

The End of Life (EOL) for NetBackup running on RedHat, Oracle and CentOS 6.7 and older after NetBackup 8.1.1

Disclaimer: The End of Life (EOL) for NetBackup running on RedHat, Oracle and CentOS 6.7 and older after NetBackup 8.1.1. These operating systems will no longer be supported commencing with the planned NetBackup release in mid CY2018. No changes in support to 6.8 and newer versions.

This section summarizes the results of all environmental checks. Icons indicates the check status:
indicates the system failed the check.

    Current NetBackup host role

  •   This server is a Master Server for NetBackup.
  • NetBackup version

  •   NetBackup version 8.1.2 was detected as being installed. Before starting the upgrade to NetBackup 8.2, it is advised to first check the integrity of your NetBackup catalog and databases via use of the Links to the latest NBCC / NBCCR downloads and then to create an online hot catalog backup of your existing NetBackup 8.1.2 configuration that can be used to recover from in case the upgrade fails and cannot be re-run. See the "Protecting the NetBackup catalog" topic of the NetBackup 8.1.2 Administrator's Guide, Volume I.
          
          Be sure to review the following upgrade related information (starting with the Upgrade Portal):
           * NetBackup 8.x Upgrade Portal
           * NetBackup Upgrade Guide
           * "About changes in NetBackup 8.2" topic in the NetBackup Installation Guide
          
          If using NetBackup OpsCenter, review the upgrade information in the NetBackup OpsCenter 8.2 Administrator's Guide.
          
          In order to upgrade to version 8.2, follow the installation instructions found in the NetBackup Upgrade Guide.
          
          To obtain the 8.2 release, refer to the Veritas Download Center.
          
          NetBackup 8.1.2 enables a cloud-based application Smart Meter that provides real-time and accurate capacity usage categorized by workload. This new capability allows customers to proactively manage capacity and stay in compliance, and gives Veritas and its partners visibility into customer usage, which enables true-up conversations on an ongoing basis. NetBackup 8.1.2+ requires a Smart Meter registration key on each master server. You must obtain these keys and have them available during the installation or upgrade of your master server. See "Enable Veritas Smart Meter" topic of Veritas Smart Meter Getting Started Guide for details. To download these keys and learn more about Smart Meter, visit Veritas Smart Meter.
