Therefore, these push delivery methods will not be supported with Veritas NetBackup™ 8.1. The approved secure mass-update methods of installation are ssh & sftp for Veritas NetBackup™ 8.1.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]Note: Beginning with Veritas NetBackup™ 8.1, media servers are supported for up to two major release levels back - and clients are supported for up to three major release levels back.
