Moving NetBackup database version 6.x form or to a RedHad Linux system requires 
more steps than any UNIX/SUSE  to UNIX/SUSE  transition.

NetBackup 7.x treats all UNIX/LINUX systems the same way. That’s why I prefer 
to upgrade first.




And you are right about the “cook” time.

I prefer to go the other way, migrate to new platform first, then upgrade NBU. 
The migration is more problematic, IMO. 

Either way you go, I suggest letting it cook for a period of time so you can 
work out any kinks.
