Upgrading NetVault Backup

Upgrade considerations

Before you upgrade your NetVault Backup system, review the following notes.

Preparing for an upgrade

Back up the NetVault Database: The first step in preparing for an upgrade of NetVault Backup Server is to perform a backup of the existing NetVault Database. If an upgrade is unsuccessful, you can reinstall the previous version of NetVault Backup and recover the NetVault Database to enable troubleshooting of the failed upgrade without interfering with an existing backup schedule.
For more information about backing up the NetVault Database with the Plug-in for Databases, see Quest NetVault Backup Built-in Plug-ins User’s Guide.
Close all other NetVault Backup applications: Before starting the upgrade procedure, close all other NetVault Backup applications, such as NetVault Configurator, Workstation Client, and PostgreSQL pgAdmin. If you have opened any configuration file, make sure that the file is closed before you start the upgrade procedure. On Windows, it may also be necessary to close Event Viewer before performing an upgrade. On Windows, close all the command prompts where any of the NetVault directories are browsed.
Disable anti-virus software: We recommend that you disable the anti-virus software before installing or upgrading NetVault Backup. The installation process may conflict with the anti-virus software and various NetVault Backup operations may fail to function properly after the installation if you do not disable the anti-virus software.
