Customers using NetVault Backup 10.0.5.27 are advised to upgrade to 10.0.5.28 which does not require patching. If upgrade is not possible at this time, this KB describes the process to patch NetVault Backup 10.0.5.27 in order to use the DR appliance RDA protocol.
To use NetVault Backup 10.0.5.27 and the DR Rapid Data Access (RDA) protocol to back up to the DR appliance, you need the following:
- Update your DR appliance to OS v3.2
- Update of the NetVault Backup 10.0.5.27 RDA library. (This update only needs to be done on the NetVault Server, unless any clients new or existing are updated to 10.0.5.27 If the client software is updated to 10.0.5.27 you must run the RDA plugin binaries on each updated client.
NetVault RDA Library File-names: (Windows: DellRDABundle-x86_64-3.2.0194.0-RDA.exe) (Linux: DellRDSPlugin-3.2.0194.0-RDA.bin.gz)
Both the DR OS 3.2 operating system and RDA Plugin binaries can be obtained under Patches on the NetVault Backup 10.0.5 Support Portal
DR RDA client-side data deduplication provides enhanced backup performance when backing up to a DR appliance. For more information about the DR appliance and RDA, see DR Series Disk Backup and Deduplication Appliances
