I recently upgraded from 6.5.3 to 6.5.4 and did run into an issue with
vault.  The issue is with the Keyword used for archives.  There has always
been a character limit of 127 but previously was just truncated and
continued.  Now at 6.5.4, the limit is enforced and if the keyword is longer
than 127 characters, the vault will not work.  Below is what I had to do to
fix the issue:

I ran the command : bpimagelist -l -d 1/1/1970 > C:\TEMP\bpimagelist.txt

If this fails with : Text Eceeded Allowed Length

Changes to the image header for keyword has to be fixed.  The rerun the
command.  When this command succeeds, the vault will work again.

I'm upgrading the last of my media servers to 6.5.4 today.

The only issue I've come across with 6.5.4 is that if a restore requests a
tape that's not in any of my libraries, nbrb gets hung up and I have to
restart NetBackup. I have a case open with Symantec on this. It may be
peculiar to my Tru64 master server.

You'll probably want to review
