R1Soft Server Backup Upgrade
Posted by Kevin Stange on 01 August 2017 02:47 PM
We have scheduled an upgrade of our R1Soft Server Backup (formerly Idera Server Backup or R1Soft CDP) platform software on cdp01.steadfast.net to version 6.4.1. This upgrade introduces a significantly redesigned user interface with improved performance. The new user interface renames "Servers" to "Protected Machines" and simplifies the management of policies and disk safes for each machine. The concept of archive points was converted to "Retention Points" and allows easy management of recovery points kept at specific time intervals such as monthly or daily.
This upgrade is being performed during the daytime, mid-week, because it is the lowest utilization period.
Date: Tuesday, August 8th, 2017
Backups will not be performed and restoration services will be unavailable during the maintenance period. This maintenance will not impact customer equipment or services other than backup tasks.
It is safe to upgrade the agent to version 6.4.1 before the manager has been upgraded. There are no important changes to the agent in this release.
As this upgrade includes changes from multiple releases, the full official release notes may be viewed in the following articles:
