Thread: patches and version number for NT

  1. patches and version number for NT

    Two questions regarding patches for the NT NetBackup client:

    1. How can I tell what patches have been installed? All I see in the
    Help->About box is 3.2GA.

    2. Is there any documentation about what patch J0820363 includes? There
    doesn't appear to be a README.txt in the patch folder.

    Thanks,

    Sander

    There should be a patchJ0820363.README file included in the
    patch. At least, there is for the solaris version patch.

    When you go to download the patch, it should display a README
    before letting you download it.

    I can't find bpgetconfig.exe, but I do see the registry entry telling me
    that the version is 3.2GA. What I'm trying to figure out is on which clients
    I've installed the patch on and which ones that I haven't.

    I thought I might be able to figure it out by attempting a patch install and
    seeing if the patch would tell me if it had previously been installed on the
    system, but it just quietly re-installs itself.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,

    In version 3.2 you can run an app called bpgetconfig.exe which will give
    you all the information about that client.

    I believe you should be able to see it in the registry as well (HLM/SOFTWARE/VERITAS).

    Well, I was wrong about bpgetconfig, it won't give you the revision your are
    using. Incidentally, it should be in the netbackup/bin/admincmd directory
    for future reference.

    Do you have a unix master?

    Yes. The master is Sun Solaris.

    Okay:

    Well, right off the top of my head I can't think of a way of doing it from
    Solaris command line. however, you could parse out the log files using bperror
    to see what's in there. I believe it logs the version when it attempts to
    back up the client.

    There are other ways, but the explanation becomes a bit long for this posting.

    If you look at the C:\Veritas\Patch folder on an NT client there will be a
    HISTORY.LOG file which shows what has been applied.
