MONITORING DOCUMENTATION  IMPACT Existing NetWorker server will remain in another disk include the /nsr folder. When upgrade failed it will using existing NetWorker server to running schedule backup. It does not apply to LTO3 installation due to zone change. As result, it will distrub schedule backup.
