Hi Jerald,

The Upgrade to NetBackup 7.5 moves the header file of a netbackup catalog
image  into the EMM and replaces it with a .lck file . 7.5 Upgrade, after
the  binary upgrade is a 2 step process.

Phase 1 starts automatically when the first instance of the nbstserv
process runs

To start phase 2 of the image metadata migration, run the following
clean-up command and wait for the image clean-up job to complete:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/bpimage -cleanup -allclients

Now for the catalog migration and the upgrade process to complete
successfully requires all the image database files to be accessible to
NetBackup when the image cleanup job runs. I believe this was not the case
when NetBackup was upgraded as the epoch directory was not mounted.

So the upgrade itself has still not completed. You are required to mount
the epoch directory and run bpimage -cleanup -allclients. The image
clean-up job should complete with a status of zero. This should complete
the  7.5 upgrade and the migration of catalog header into EMM.

/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbemmcmd -listsettings -brief
-machinename masterservername | grep -i LIST_FS_IMAGE_HEADERS

If the result shows LIST_FS_IMAGE_HEADERS = "0", phase 2 has completed.

If the above value is still 1 then open a case with Symantec asap.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

environment: redhat linux 7.5 master/media server

we move ("archive") old catalog images which don't expire under
netbackup/db/images for 1 client to a nfs mounted filesystem to keep the
image database to a managable size, and then link an epoch directory to the
nfs mount if needed for a restore.  this has worked for 6.5, and 7.1, but
now when i link a 7.1 directory that wasn't "upgraded" during the 7.5
upgrade, the .lck files aren't there and the images don't show up in the
gui for a restore.

is there a command i can manually run to convert the database image files?
i thought i read something last year about manually doing this if you had a
large database when doing the upgrade.

thanks in advance,
