NetVault Backup Plug-in for SnapVault Manager 10.0.1 - Release Notes

Known issues

Table 2. Known issues

If you try to restore a non-qtree data directory, the job fails, but the job status shows “Restore Completed.”

26968

When relocating data during restore, if you include a trailing slash in the Relocate path, the restore job fails.

27071

On Windows, when you select the SV root directory for a restore job, plug-in restores the data successfully, but the job log includes the following error message:

Error Releasing Secondary Relationship: NDMP_SV_RPL_GENERIC

SnapVault: ERROR 1: The specified relationship is currently involved in a transfer. Release must be done on an idle or broken-off relationship.

Workaround: Release the relationship on the SV secondary filer. Use the snapvault destinations command to find the relationship that must be released.

27020

After importing a relationship, the plug-in does not display the relationship icon (“R”) on the selection tree until you refresh the Backup window.

27086

If you cancel a job during relationship initialization, the plug-in fails to remove the relationship. When you try to recreate the relationship, the plug-in displays the message “Relationship is busy.”

27130

Because all primary systems list the same number of snapshots whether they were taken for that primary system or not, the list contains both valid and invalid snapshots. When an invalid snapshot is selected for a restore, the job fails and logs show the message “No Path.”

27154

When restoring data to an open system, if you select the Restart Relationship check box, the job reports an error (“No common snapshot to use as the base for resynchronization”) and fails.

Workaround: Recreate the relationship after restoring the data.

27156

After relocating data to a new directory, the release statement fails and the job logs show the message “No release-able destination found that matches those parameters.”

This message can be ignored.

Upgrade and compatibility

Installation packages for Linux-based systems: Starting with 10.0, NetVault Backup offers separate client-only and server-only installation packages for Linux-based systems. Both the server and the client packages are available in hybrid and pure 64-bit versions.
Hybrid server and client packages: The hybrid packages (LinuxX86HybridServer and LinuxX86Hybrid) are intended for Linux users who do not have a pure 64-bit-only requirement.
Pure 64-bit server and client packages: The pure 64-bit packages (LinuxX86Pure64Server and LinuxX86Pure64) packages are intended for pure 64-bit Linux distributions. If you have a specific reason that you cannot use any 32-bit components (for example, you are using a Linux distribution that does not run 32-bit code), use these packages.
