Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are using NetBackup KM v3.0.00 and have calendar-based backup policies.

What does it fix?

To avoid false alarms, calendar-based backup policies are now excluded from the calculation of the next scheduled backup, allowing the State parameter of the NBUPolicyState application class to remain in "Idle" state instead of "Not Started". The "Not Started" state is only set for policies that use a frequency-based backup schedule.

How to install the patch?

  1. On Windows, unzip the following file to the %PATROL_HOME% directory on the managed systems, while logged in as default PATROL Agent user:
    • patch_NBU-671.zip
  2. On UNIX, untar the following file to the $PATROL_HOME directory on the managed systems, while logged in as default PATROL Agent user:
    • patch_NBU-671.tar
  3. Restart the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect.
  4. Repeat the above on all PATROL Agent system running NetBackup KM.
