Important Upgrade Notice
Customers upgrading from Server Backup Manager 6.2.2+ can upgrade as normal. If you are upgrading from any release previous to 5.14.3, this release introduces significant changes to the Disk Safe format which are incompatible with previous releases. Refer to Important Upgrade Notices in the 5.14.3 Release Notes for information on how to upgrade.

New Features

  • Archive has been extended to Amazon S3 and compatible services, IBM Cloud Object Storage, and Wasabi Cloud Storage.   
  • You can now update agents directly from the SBM UI.
  • Improvements to user interface responsiveness.

Fixed Issues

Apt and Yum repos now use SHA256 key.
Server Backup Manager
  • BMR could be started to an alternate agent, regardless of permissions.
  • Certificate (cacerts) overwritten after Backup Manager update.
  • Power user unable to add "New Machine"
  • Power User Unable to Create Disk Safe
  • Incoming Remote Replication requests do not populate task id and upon saving the policy, existing ids are lost.   This results in phantom tasks.
  • Advanced File Excludes UI is missing scroll.
Server Backup Agent
  • LVM backup fail on  RHEL 7.4. (requires SBM update)
  • r1soft-setup doesn't recognize that a proper module already exists.
  • A conflict with the Continuum RMM Linux agent which could cause the Server Backup Agent to crash has been resolved.

Upgrade Notes

You must have an active maintenance account to upgrade. If you have a perpetual (non-heartbeat) license, it will be converted to a heartbeat license automatically upon upgrade. Make sure your SBM has https connectivity to complete this conversion. During the upgrade, you will be notified of the change and will be given the option to revert back to the previous version you were running. 

Data Center Console

After completing the software updates in environments using Data Center Console, R1Soft recommends refreshing the associated SBM server data for proper syncing.

Backup Agent

Backup Agent software requires a glibc version of 2.5 or greater.

GNU C Library Compatibility
Backup Agents on Linux distributions with older glibc libraries should remain on version 5.10 or earlier versions of the Backup Agent software. Refer to the following Knowledge Base article for more information: Error - Linux cdp agent fails with "Floating Point Exception".

Known Issues

Common Problems and Issues

  • The merge task may fail when you attempt to merge a recovery point that was interrupted due to CLOB/BLOB issues. If the merge fails due to this issue, merge the points one by one. After the merge fails, merge each recovery point one by one until the task is successful.
  • Users cannot set heap memory for more than 1024 MB using serverbackup-setup -m. Even if there is more than enough space, Server Backup Manager displays a message indicating that memory specified must be smaller than 1024 MB. Edit server.conf to update memory settings.
  • Users who have more than 1,500 mount points per device may experience performance issues during a file restore or when attempting to browse recovery and archive points.
Installation issues
  • Server Backup 5.2.x and later do not support remote deployment to a Windows 2003 server because installing drivers requires user interaction..
Restore issues
  • Users who use Centos LiveCD on any bare-metal restores that have LVM may receive error messages that they failed to restore deltas to a certain device number. This issue results from the fact that because the Centos LiveCD uses its own LVM to manage its file systems, dm-0 and dm-1 are always in use. To avoid this issue, choose a target that is two LVM devices higher than the original. For example, if /tmp is originally on /dev/dm-1, you should choose /dev/dm-3 as your target.
  • RecoveryCD versions 4.2.0 and 5.0.0 do not work when performing a bare-metal restore to a target that includes mdadm and LVM devices.
  • Some users may receive an exception error message when attempting to exclude a large group of files in a directory when performing a restore.
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 users cannot restore a mailbox database to an alternate location.
Data Center Console issues
  • When editing a Policy in DCC, the Recovery Point limit set at the Volume level can be exceeded. Volume objects must be refreshed in order to see the limit changes. This is done by refreshing SBM or by editing and re-saving the Volume.
  • The Data Center Console displays incorrect values in the Compression Type section of the Edit Disk Safe window after editing the values.
  • Internet Explorer users who enable the Compatibility view may notice graphical display issues when attempting to view some Data Center Console pages, such as the Disk Usage, Volumes, and Policies pages. This issue does not occur in other Web browsers.
Parallels Virtuozzo user issues
  • Not all files are downloaded for a container on Virtuozzo and system displays the error message, ERROR - Failed to download file, in the log file.
  • Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 users may notice that Virtuozzo virtual machines are not detected as devices in the Disk Safe wizard. The VMs are backed up. If you need granular file restore for a VM, you can back up the PCS VM by installing a Server Backup Agent in the VM guest operating system.
  • Virtuozzo users may notice that when some containers are downloaded, the compressed file does not contain the first and last container listed in the recovery points.
