R1Soft Server Backup Upgrade
Posted by Kevin Stange on 04 April 2019 04:18 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 6.8.2. This upgrade fixes a number of bugs and improves how scheduled backup retention works.
This upgrade is being performed during the daytime, mid-week, because it is the lowest utilization period.
Date: Tuesday, April 16th, 2019
During the maintenance period, backups will not be performed and restoration services will be unavailable. This maintenance will not impact customer equipment or services other than backup tasks and does not affect private backup servers or customers using Veeam.
It is safe to upgrade the agent to version 6.8.2 before the manager has been upgraded if you have not already done so.
After this update you may want to review your backup schedule and retention policy to ensure it meets your needs. This update introduces some additional granularity to scheduling compared to previous releases.
