  1. Can't patch BS 3.4GA on Win2K Server


    Greetings...

    I'm having a world of problems trying to (re)install NetBackup BusinesServer
    on a Windows 2000 Server. After configuring/patching 2000, I install BusinesServer
    from the autorun, then install the NetBackup for Netware application from
    the CD. There is no backup client installed on my server. This installation
    is to backup three NetWare 5.1 servers on a DLT7000.

    I've identified several patches on the Veritas web site. The first, P0850612,
    is for the Novell Netware Client. Following the patch directions for NT,
    I execute nlmpatch.exe. This patch seems to install properly.

    The second patch, J0850645, has text files discussing version 3.4.1, which
    seems relevant to my installation, but everything references installation
    off a CD. The only other apparent option is running SETUP.EXE. This results
    in an error: Installed version of NetBackup does not match patch version.
    Not installing patch.

    The third patch, NB_341_1, instructs to run SETUP.EXE to install. This results
    in the same error message as above.


    Could I please get recommendations on how to perform a clean installation
    of BusinesServer on Windows 2000 Server, starting with the installation CD
    for version 3.4GA? Or do I somehow need to obtain a 3.4.1 CD?

    Thanks for your time...

    A patch prerequisite is to have an installation already running (client
    |server type installation )
    To reinstall I would suggest :
    1. add /remove program
    2. cleanup the remaining netbackup directory
    3 cleanup the registry hkeylocalmachine/software/veritas/netbackup

    Get the full version 3.4 business server :
    run the setup program then apply the patch : in the correct order 645 then
    3.4_1
