New Open File Backup Method for Windows, Netware

Increasing NetBackup capabilities is the primary function of the VERITAS
NetBackup 4.5 Feature Pack 6 (FP6), a media refresh replacing the
VERITAS NetBackup 4.5 Feature Pack 3 (FP3). Replacement of the open file
backup method for Windows and NetWare allows more accessibility
providing easier configuration backup methods.

Necessary maintenance patches to move to the new open file backup method
is included so extension of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuance
capabilities is available. With this new release, future patches will be
smaller in size. This new version incorporates all updates since the
VERITAS NetBackup 4.5 FP3 with an inclusive media installation kit.

Distributed in a media kit format, future feature pack patches will
require the VERITAS NetBackup 4.5 FP6 for installation. Benefits of
feature packs is the supplement of new features between major releases
along with any product fixes. As a super-set of maintenance packs,
feature packs contain all the maintenance packs that have been offered
prior to the release of that feature pack.

Upgrading does not require the entire environment be changed. It does
require that the Master server be at the same or more recent level than
the media servers and clients. NetBackup 4.5 GA or prior FP or MP levels
as well as NetBackup 3.4 clients are compatible with NetBackup 4.5 FP6.
