Getting NetBackup 7.5 files for install

We just upgraded our NetBackup from 7.1 to 7.5. These are my notes on upgrading our UNIX and Linux clients.

Go to and download the required files. You will need to enter a serial number to get access to the files. As seen to the right.

After you download the files you will have to join them together before you can do a install.

Unix joining instructions:
cat "NB_CLT_7.5.0.4-tar-split.1of3" "NB_CLT_7.5.0.4-tar-split.2of3" "NB_CLT_7.5.0.4-tar-split.3of3" > "NB_CLT_7.5.0.4.tar"

now you are ready to begin the install.
