This release includes 4 product editions: CDP Standard Edition, CDP Advanced Edition, CDP Enterprise Edition, and Data Center Console.
|Server/Agent Build Version:||16162|
CDP 3.18.0 Windows Agent includes a new VSS Filter driver. This update will require a server reboot after installation.
CDP 3.18 and later performs automatic backup and restores for LVM devices installed on Linux. Earlier versions of CDP 3, required the user to create the logical volumes using standard LVM utilities before performing the BMR. This manual step is no longer necessary and LVM restores can now be accomplished via the Bare Metal Restore wizard. For more information see: Bare-Metal Restore with LVM or Bare-Metal Restore with LVM and RAID.
Allows Control Panel users to directly restore files to their Control Panel directory.
This release includes many improvements for the SOAP API. In addition to the new Configuration method, CDP includes new features for Agent, Disk Safe and Policy which are listed below:
Added support for UTF-8 character sets to allow CDP to perform backup and restores in languages such as Korean, Chinese and Japanese.
CDP automatically skips all devices mounted as loop during device discovery.
Customers can now restrict MySQL Add-on limits by setting the limit to zero(0).
User logging is now available. This feature logs the username of the CDP user when initiating tasks such as backup and restores.
The terminology in the CDP and DCC interfaces has been improved to be consistent with IT terminology. The following updates were made for Disk Safes and Control Panel:
Improvement made to alleviate errors received when InnoDB per table file restore setting is enabled in MySQL.
User now have the option to select all or many policies to execute via the "Run Selected" button.
Agent List and Details displays the following information for an Agent:
Launching CDP server from DCC now displays the Hostname or IPaddress of the CDP Server in the titlebar.
Fixed an issue where the user had to change partition type from SFS to NTFS for the Windows system to boot.
Fixed an issue where the Agent would shut down if the device was full or read only. The policy will fail in this scenario but the agent will no longer shut down. In addition, the backing file location is now available for Linux users for disk full events.
Changed hcp utility error message from "hcp: error, quota '5' is too high. please check the quota and try again" to "hcp: error, available reserved disk space too low. Please lower the quota and try again. hcp: error, could not setup snap shot request.". This error occurs when the file system has less than 5% free space prior to snapshot creation.
Fixed an issue where the Server Information page could not be re-sized and did not provide scroll bars when the window was made smaller.
Resolved an issue where a queued task could only be cancelled if no recovery points existed in the disk safe and task state changed from queued to running.
Fixed an issue where Task History Cleanup would fail on Control Panel task and MySQL backup task with no alerts existed.
After creating a DCC account the local CDP users email address would disappear. The email address is now available in both CDP and DCC.
We resolved an issue where a user could add a Control Panel to a Windows agent. This issue caused confusion for our customers since Control Panel for Windows is not supported and will not work.
Resolved an issue where upgrading DCC overwrote server.conf and server.properties settings.
Windows customers can watch their logs using Wordpad but will need to close and reopen the log file to see progress (example default path for Enterprise Install on Windows: C:\Program Files\R1Soft CDP Server Enterprise\log\server.log).
Linux customers can watch their server log file using the following command: tail --f /usr/sbin/r1soft/log/server.log
In Windows, when restoring to an alternate location at the drive level (e.g. C:\ to G) you must drill down one level, select ALL, then restore to the alternate location.
Users from Virtuozzo containers and control panel users residing on said containers are not able to restore files at this time. We are working on fixing this issue in our next release.
There is an issue when performing a BMR to "Original Host" using an encrypted disk safe due to a missing encryption key. The work around to a successful BMR of an encrypted disk safe is to use the "Alternate Host" option and IP address of the original host.
