NW Module for SQL compatibility question

NW Module for SQL compatibility question
February 27, 2013 08:42AM
In planning my NW 7.6.2 migration to 8.x, the Procedure generator tells me
to upgrade storage nodes first, as 7.6.x storage nodes won't work in 8.x.
That's fine, as the 8.0 node will work with 7.6.x server, it says, which
gives me time to do all mine (I have 9 storage nodes).

I have 6 storage nodes that are also MS SQL clusters. On these I run the
NW Module for SQL Server 5.2. Is that compatible with 8.x? I can't seem to
tell ... if not, what do I have to upgrade to - NW Module for MS
Applications 2.4 SP1?

If so, can I / should I upgrade the SQL module to the MS Application
module first?

I can't seem to find an answer to these questions, or a procedure for
updating / migrating to a module.

Thanks

We have been looking into upgrading as well.
NMM 2.4 is the way to go. NMSQL will no longer be supported and will not work with NetWorker 8.x

I found that this is a big change, so you better get familiar with NMM first. It will impact your filesystem backups as well.
So, first upgrade to NMM, then start thinking about upgrading NetWorker.
