8 Operating Systems Most Operating System vendors provide patches and updates to their products. It is a best practice of NetBackup Quality Engineering to test with the latest service pack or patch level of the operating system when testing a platform. If a known problem exists on a specific service pack or patched OS level, this information is identified in the tables below. Any required operating system patches for specific releases of NetBackup are documented in the NetBackup Release Notes. The current patch versions of releases will work with NetBackup for the Operating Systems listed below unless otherwise noted. Symantec supports the standard un-altered kernel/operating System levels as indicated in the table, provided the OS Vendor still provides support for that level. Should an issue arise on a revised kernel, Operating System, or virtual system environment, Symantec support may request the recreation of the problem with the standard operating environment distribution. "NetBackup Vault" This option runs on the same operating systems and versions and in the same clustering environments as NetBackup unless otherwise noted in the NetBackup Release Notes. NetBackup restrictions and limitations related to systems, clusters, and peripherals also apply to Vault. Exception: Vault does not support standalone drives. "Data at Rest Key Management Service (KMS)" This feature is a Master server-based symmetric key management service that manages symmetric cryptography keys for tape drives that conform to the T10 standard (i.e. LTO4). Beginning in NetBackup KMS is supported on all OS versions where the Master Server and Media Server are supported unless otherwise noted. "Support Definitions" Symantec Maintenance/Support only applies to Symantec Licensed Software, assuming you have a current Symantec Maintenance/Support subscription for such software and such Symantec Licensed Software is operating in configurations which Symantec designates as supported. Symantec Maintenance/Support does not cover (and we have no responsibility for) providing technical support, installation services or other services for any other software or hardware products. Also, Symantec is not obligated to provide Maintenance/Support when your Symantec Licensed Software is operating in configurations Symantec does not designate as supportable/supported. Please see the current Symantec Technical Support Policy and your Symantec license agreement for more information, terms and limitations. "Supported Configurations" For more information about technical notes in regards to Symantec supported configurations (such as operating system/levels, firmware levels, databases, devices, device drivers, applications, etc.), please refer to the Symantec Support website <http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/support/> Please note that while Symantec makes reasonable efforts to keep this information updated, we cannot assure that this information will be in all cases complete or the most current. "Third Party Products" Where your problem may be related to product(s) from a third party vendor with whom we have a cooperative or collaborative relationship on such product(s), then Symantec may work with that vendor towards resolving your reported problem. Where Symantec does not have such a support relationship in place with the third party vendor, or where the vendor ceases to support such product(s), then our ability to support Symantec Licensed Software operating with such vendor's product(s) may be limited, affected, or prevented (and such third party product(s) may cease to be part of Symantec -supported configuration(s)). Symantec support may be limited by the hardware or software vendor due to their support lifecycle. Should a vendor announce End of Support for a product, Symantec support may be limited. page 8, Operating Systems 2013 Symantec Corporation /

PRIOR to NetBackup a failure may occur during Share Resource Tree creation and restore of Solaris 10-Update 8, BMR clients, on SPARC (sun4u and sun4v) and x64 processor types. BMR is unable to create SRTs (network and media) using the Solaris 10-Update 8 media that Sun Microsystems recently released. In some cases, the SRT creation works. However, a BMR restore of the Solaris 10-Update 8 client might not complete successfully, and result in an unusable system. If you encounter this type of issue, use a Solaris 10, Update-7 SRT to perform a BMR-based restore of a Solaris 10, Update 8 server. 9.
