Post upgrade 7.5.0.5 issues?
June 10, 2013 09:44PM
So what is the verdict on 7.5.0.5?

I am looking to upgrade 7.1.0.3 to 7.5.0.5
W2K8 master, using vstorage API backups of 5.0 esx, and KMS for managing LTO4 encryption keys, and DDBoost for data domain OST disk pools.

I want to update esx to 5.1 and allow for SQL 2012 and windows server 2012.

The only damage we see with it is a Java UI that won't load completely and failures with OpsCenter to connect to the Master. Jobs continue to run and kick off as expected, we just can't manage them through the UI.

7.5.0.6 has been rescheduled for late June. The new CEO of Symantec is aware of declining reliability and increases in EEB creation.[u][/u][u][/u]

We are running three NetBackup 7.5.0.5 domains under RedHat 5 (2.6.18-348) and VCS 5.0. We are running with two EEBs installed:[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u] [u][/u]
ET3106719 – the ghost jobs issue which replaces nbjobd[u][/u][u][/u]
ET3156426 – image catalog filesystem grows dramatically thru failure to properly clean the old files[u][/u][u][/u]
This replaces nbpem & bpdbm[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u] [u][/u]
We also need to upgrade past VCS 5.0. VCS had been masking the “largefiles” option of VxFS and the BMR_DATA.db file grep to 2 GB in the primary UNIX domain. Instance crashed since it could not extend the BMR database. Recovered OK – thanks to Matthew in Australia. We also have a work around for the VCS mask of “largefiles”.[u][/u][u][/u]

We really need 7.5.0.6 for Windows Server 2012 support. This is really not funny. This proliferation was needed before the end of the year. That if flunked out of 7.5.0.5 and requires 7.5.0.6 is bad enough. The funny thing is that the 7.5.0.6 release is now being delayed because the new Symantec CEO smells the quality of what has been released in recent years (needed features, but new and unexpected bugs along with the new code), and is demanding actual engineering qualification of code releases. Here’s hoping NBU 7.6 is delayed longer and for the same good reasons.[u][/u][u][/u]

If you were me, and I already am running with two EEBs, and have not experienced the NBSL crash and core dump, would you prophylactically apply EEB ET3123001 on top of the others? I do not want to run a regression testing lab for Symantec.[u][/u][u][/u]

Don't wait, there is a fix for the NBSL issues. You might want to call support to make sure you get the right EEB for your issue as there is more than one.

Yes there is a problem with ghost jobs: (you will see 100s-1000s of jobs Active but they really complete)[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u][u][/u]
This EEB fixes that issue:[u][/u][u][/u]

Hello,[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u][u][/u]
I am starting to plan for a 7.5 upgrade from 6.5.6 in an environment that I am consulting at for the next few months. Has anyone run into any major bugs or issues with 7.5.0.5 after the upgrade? I am running Windows x64 as my master with multiple NDMP filers and no media servers.[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u][u][/u]
Thanks,[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u][u][/u]
