Table 3: Recovery Manager for Active Directory known issues
|Known Issue||Issue ID|
|Online Restore Wizard (agent-based restore) does not work on Windows Server 2016 with Local Security Authority (LSA) protection and Secure Boot enabled.||RMADFE-1966|
|Cannot perform RMAD upgrade if the SQL Server Always On group is enabled for the reporting database.||RMADFE-1146|
Unexpected behavior when you upgrade operating system on the domain controller that has the Backup Agent installed from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008: After the upgrade, the Backup Agent may not work properly.
WORKAROUND: Reinstall the Backup Agent on the domain controller.
You may encounter the following unexpected behavior on the Backup Data Preparation step of the Online Restore Wizard: The wizard may not respond to any user action while it is processing a backup.
WORKAROUND: Wait until the backup processing is finished.
When you select the "Backup Agent Management" node in the Recovery Manager Console, you may observe the following issue: The Recovery Manager Console stops responding, showing the status "Discovering Backup Agent instances, please wait".
WORKAROUND: Wait until the Backup Agent discovery completes.
Unexpected behavior on the Reporting Options step in the Online Restore Wizard: When you select the "Include ChangeAuditor data in reports" check box, select a ChangeAuditor database, and click Next, you may encounter the error "Unable to connect to the ChangeAuditor database: <database>. Details: Login failed for user '<current user>'."
This error shows up if the current user account does not have sufficient permissions to access the ChangeAuditor database. The expected behavior in the described situation is that the Online Restore Wizard should prompt you for credentials to access the ChangeAuditor database.
WORKAROUND: Run the Online Restore Wizard under an account that has sufficient permissions to access the target ChangeAuditor database.
You may encounter the following unexpected behavior while using the "Backup Agent Management" view in the Recovery Manager Console to view a list of Backup Agents: The list of Backup Agents may be incomplete. The cause of this behavior is that when you apply a filter on one or more columns in the "Backup Agent Management" view, there is no indication that the filter is applied.
WORKAROUND: Check to see if a filter is applied on any columns in the "Backup Agent Management" view. Remove the filter if necessary.
A compare operation performed in the Online Restore Wizard may take a significant time to complete (30+ minutes). Also, the compare operation may consume a significant amount of RAM. This issue only occurs if the number of objects being compared is 100,000+.
WORKAROUND: Wait for the compare operation to complete.
The Online Restore Wizard cannot find an object if the object name contains 1-9 digits when searching by the full object name, but can find it by the common mask, for example: 'u01' object can be found by 'u' and cannot by 'u01'.
This issue may arise if the operating system version of a domain controller is greater or different from the RMAD Console machine operating system.
WORKAROUND: Copy the esent.dll file from the domain controller where the backup was created to the product installation folder on the Recovery Manager Console machine.
You may receive the "ASR Error: Fail to exclude disk#1" error when performing the Backup or Restore operation on Windows Server 2008/2008R2-based domain controller.
WORKAROUND: This error can be safely ignored because it does not affect the backup or restore process.
After the upgrade on the network isolated machine, the Recovery Manager Console is loaded too slowly.
WORKAROUND: Uncheck the Check for publisher's certificate revocation option on the Advanced tab in the Internet Option dialog in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Pre-installed Backup Agent can be upgraded during the backup creation.
WORKAROUND: Do not upgrade Backup Agent if the backup operation is not finished.
|When a user cancels the data replication process by Ctrl + C, by logoff, etc, the status of the replication session is stuck at "Running".||RMADFE-1271|
|Customer can add a few instances of the same RMAD console (by domain name and by IP).||RMADFE-1276|
Cannot disable replication schedule when there is no replication console (the replication console was deleted).
Table 4: Recovery Manager Portal known issues
|Known Issue||Issue ID|
Unexpected behavior when you use the Recovery Manager Portal to delegate restore or undelete permissions to a user or group that is not assigned any role in the Recovery Manager Portal: The delegation operation completes successfully. The expected behavior in this situation is that the Recovery Manager Portal should not allow you to delegate permissions to a user or group that has not been assigned any role in the portal.
WORKAROUND: Before delegating restore or undelete permissions, ensure that the target user or group is assigned the appropriate role in the Recovery Manager Portal. For more information about assigning roles to portal users, see the "Using Recovery Manager Portal" chapter in the User Guide.
The Recovery Manager Portal fails to show the result of a restore or undelete operation if while the restore or undelete is still running you switch to some other tab, and then return to the Recovery tab.
To ensure that all objects have been successfully restored or undeleted:
When selecting a backup the Recovery Manager Portal, you may encounter the error "No backup found for the last backup session." This issue occurs if the backup is located on the domain controller and in the Recovery Manager Console its storage location is specified using a UNC path.
WORKAROUND: Select a backup stored locally on the Recovery Manager for Active Directory computer.
Cannot access the Recovery Manager Portal if the portal is installed in the child domain.
WORKAROUND: In the portal settings file C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\Recovery Manager Portal\Enterprise.Portal.Console\bin\EnterprisePortalSettings.xml <add key="SimulateLogonForWebDelegation" value="false" /> (default = true)
