This release includes four product editions: CDP Standard Edition, CDP Advanced Edition, CDP Enterprise Edition, and Data Center Console.
|Server/Agent Build Version:|| 4.0.0 build 17089
|Recommended Module Version:||4.2.1 build 16433|
When upgrading and a CDP Server is registered to a DCC Server, the DCC Server MUST be upgraded prior to any CDP Servers being upgraded. In other words, customers using DCC should ALWAYS upgrade DCC before upgrading any CDP Servers.
|Upgrading from CDP 3.0 versions to 4.0 is seamless and fast. Download the latest 4.0 installation package for your operating system, and your CDP installation will be automatically upgraded.|
CDP 4.0.0 improves MS SQL Server backup and restore functions. The MySQL Add-on is now known as the Databases Add-on and enables features of MS SQL Server and MySQL for the Agent it is applied to.
The following restore options are provided by CDP:
- Restore one, several, or all databases.
- Database restore to original or alternate database name/path.
- Protecting SQL Server
- MS SQL Server Restore to Alternate Location
- MS SQL Server Restore with Alternate Name
You can optionally define an alternate database name for any of the databases selected for restore as a new step in the Restore Databases wizard. See Restoring MySQL Databases to Alternate Locations.
MySQL restores will no longer dump temporary instance logs to the CDP Server. Before it was fixed, this problem could cause excessive delays on large installations using the InnoDB file_per_table option, unless there was an error when starting the instance. See MySQL InnoDB File Per Table Restore.
The CDP Server user interface may now be customized to display in Japanese or Spanish in addition to English. See:
- Japanese and Spanish User Interface Available in CDP Server
- Configuring Language Settings
- Configuring Interface Languages
- Logging in to CDP Server
- Adding Users
The time zone setting was added in CDP 4.0.0. See:
You can edit the same Policy fields in Data Center Console as in the Enterprise Edition User Interface. You can browse files on the Agent to select for excludes, configure the database and Control Panel instances, and test instance connections. See Editing Policies in Data Center Console.
In Data Center Console, you have the option to mark email report items with a yellow (warning) or red (error) color. See Data Center Console Email Reporting.
The new version includes revamped example scripts, including several soapUI samples. See API Documentation.
Agent, Policy, Volume, Disk Safe. See API Documentation.
The ability to run a Policy and re-run a task from Task History has been added to the SOAP API. See API - Run and Re-Run Policy Task.
The ability to cancel all running and queued tasks in one operation has been added to Task History in order to assist administrators needing to perform server maintenance or upgrade their CDP Server. See Canceling All Running and Queued Tasks.
New widgets are located on the Dashboard: the Running Tasks Widget, Queued Tasks Widget, Improvements to Disk Usage Widget, and Throughput Gauges. See:
- Accessing Advanced Edition Web Interface
- Accessing Enterprise Edition Web Interface
- Accessing Standard Edition Web Interface
The ability to disable users has been added to CDP Server and DCC. When disabling Power Users, additional options are presented to allow the administrator to also disable sub-users administered by the Power User, and to disable any policies associated with Power User-owned Agents. See:
hcp -s has been modified to only return the requested hcp device, omitting banner information. See hcp -s Does Not Print Banner Information.
The CDP Server and CDP Agent init scripts will support additional Linux Standard Base (LSB) Core Specifications exit codes. See Utilizing LSB Exit Codes by CDP Server and Agent Init Scripts.
If the window size is smaller than its contents, a scroll-bar appears to allow you to scroll to see the non-visible content. See Scroll Bar is Added to the Properties Window.
The CDP-bundled Apache Tomcat server has been updated to version 6.0.35 to fix defects and address security vulnerabilities. See the Apache Tomcat release notes for more information.
When a Disk Safe was in a closed state, getDiskSafes() returned an incomplete diskSafe object.
User "create" and "get" operations returned wrong user attributes keys when creating/getting Power Users.
The Doxygen utility version used to create the Linux CDP API Documentation has been updated in order to correct this issue.
In order to make the soapUI script work on Linux CDP servers, edit the Volume Path in the createVolume calls, and also change the Disk Safe path in the createDiskSafe calls.
This release corrects an issue that caused the DCC Task Scheduler thread to terminate, resulting in reports not running as scheduled.
The error used to occur when the CDP Server was deleted from the icon displayed beside the CDP Server in the Data Center Console.
DCC Volume status and statistics will no longer show an unknown status when processing CDP Server updates.
During a backup, the Agent would stop and un-mount the snapshot, but then immediately try to read from it, resulting in failure.
If the cdp-agent service was stopped while taking a snapshot, the system would eventually consume all of the memory for the driver.
CDP Agent would randomly die, for no apparent reason, and with no log messages.
Agent would fail to install, claiming the OS was not a supported OS on Server 2003 R2. The issue is corrected in CDP 4.0.
r1soft-mysql-util would publish the password for the MySQL backup user.
The new version restores databases containing non-Latin (i.e., Greek) characters correctly.
tmp directory could have limited space if it was put in a non-default location. CDP could not restore all necessary files.
Running the policy with a MySQL 5.5.10 instance would finish with an error.
A problem would appear when there were two different databases with the same name, e.g., "drupal" and "Drupal."
Policy alerts published on the CDP Server Dashboard after successful replication now work correctly. Policies will no longer go into an Alert status if the not-backed-up Devices are disabled in the associated Disk Safe.
Ubersmith grabs Disk Safe statuses correctly.
After using the service cdp-server stop command, mq error messages are displayed in the logs.
When a customer used a text-only (non-HTML) email client, they received an error message.
Labels with multiple words can now be translated properly.
Tasks that run over multiple report execution windows will now continue to be displayed in subsequent reports until the task terminates.
This release removes a superfluous error message from the CDP Server log file related to committing or creating a JMS transaction during the CDP Server shutdown process.
CDP opened the Recovery Point list of the Disk Safes with an error.
If a user sets up reporting for running and/or queued tasks, they now continue to show up in subsequent reports until their state is changed to error/finished.
Parallels Plesk Panel control panel users were not able to see or restore their mail files.
