When installing BRM patch set 9, the script pin_75_75ps9_upgrade.pl was executed before modifying the files, it makes a backup of only pin.conf files but not the other files like Infranet.properties.

The following are some of Example files which were changed by the script but without a backup:
-rwxrwxr-x  1 pin brmgrp  10642 Jan 18 02:27 pin.conf.bak
-rwxrwxr-x  1 pin brmgrp  10461 Jan 18 02:27 pin.conf
-rwxrwxr-x  1 pin brmgrp   8685 Jan 18 02:27 Infranet.properties
-rwxr-xr-x+ 1 pin brmgrp   3062 Jan 18 02:27 pin_cmt

pin.conf backup file created, but no backup for Infranet.properties and pin_cmt files

Backup files should be created and it should also have the patch number along with .bak .

e.g pin.conf.19133869.bak

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In fresh environment, install 7.5 PS6
2. Install the ./7.5PS9_ThirdParty_linux_32_opt.bin, and source /opt/portal/7.5/ThirdPartyApps/source.me.csh
3. Make sure the perl link of PIN_HOME/bin/perl is pointing to latest perl version [ 5.18.2].
4. Install ./7.5PS9_19133869_Portal_Base_linux_32_opt.bin and source /opt/portal/7.5/source.me.csh
5. Install ./7.5PS9_PortalBase_Upgrade_75_75PS_linux_32_opt.bin
6. Take the backup of pin.conf [ dir mentioned above].
7. Run pin_75_75ps9_upgrade.pl
8. Installation completed successfully
9. Verify that  *.bak file is getting created only for pin.conf, but no backup files created for Infranet.properties and pin_cmt files.
