Recovery Manager for AD Product Notification

Product Release

As a part of our continued effort to provide a world-class solution to our customers and per GDPR guidelines, we want to inform you that the upcoming release of Recovery Manager for Active Directory Version 10.3.1 includes Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express as an optional sub-processor. Recovery Manager for Active Directory Version 10.3.1 is expected to release by early March 2024, with the possibility of an earlier release date.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express is a powerful and reliable free data management system that delivers a reliable data store for desktop applications. Recovery Manager for Active Directory utilizes Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express for the full replication feature and comparison reports. Both features are optional.

The full replication feature creates a full copy of console settings, so a target console can fully take over the initial console. Comparison reports are reports based on per-attribute comparisons of Active Directory, AD LDS or Group Policy objects selected from a backup, with their counterparts in Active Directory, AD LDS, or another backup.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express introduces new functionality from Microsoft that enables Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) and at the same time, by default, communicates data back to Microsoft such as IP address, username, email, and location. For more information, see Microsoft SQL Server privacy statement. To disable this telemetry activity that reports back to Microsoft, follow instructions found at Configure usage and diagnostic data collection for SQL Server (CEIP).
