Hello Bart,

use the same install CD as for Enterprise. The licensing changed from 4.5 to 5.x

Datacenter Server 4.5 => Enterprise Server 5.x
Business Server 4.5 => Server 5.x

The Business Server keys work for Server 5.x but you should request new 5.x license papers from Veritas if you have a valid support contract.

You can use the following adresses for your request
Amercustomercare at Region America
EmeaCustomerCare at EMEA Region
aplquery at AsiaPacific Region

Provide the following numbers so Veritas is able to track your licenses

Customer No
Sales Order No
Purchase Order No
Order Date

Hope this helps

Best regards

Betreff: [Veritas-bu] Upgrade Veritas NetBackup BusinesServer 4.5 to 5.1


We have a couple of Veritas DataCenter 4.5 master servers and some Veritas BusinesServer 4.5 machines.

The upgrade of the DataCenter servers is in full progress.  But how do I upgrade a BusinesServer to the next release?
Is there an equivalent of BusinesServer in 5.0 (5.1) ?  if so, can I use the same install CD of Enterprise server to do the upgrade or do I have to ask Veritas for a different media?  If so, Can I download this install from the Veritas site?

Best regards,
Bart Wallebroek
