The exchange team are upgrading there servers from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003.
During the upgrade process they are planning to have one node 1 at Windows 2000 and the other node at Windows 2003.
Netbackup is installed on the X: drive which is shared between the clusters.
The version of Netbackup on each node is currently - 5.1 MP3
I have two questions from the Netbackup point of view:
Is it possible to have different version of Windows OS and still perform Backups and restores, while failing over the package between the nodes?
Is it possible to have different versions of NB software on both nodes e.g?
Windows 2000 5.1 MP3 Windows 2003 5.1 MP5
