About this release

Quest NetVault Backup (NetVault Backup) Plug‑in for Domino (Plug‑in for Domino) 12.4 is a minor release, with enhanced features and functionality. For complete product documentation, visit https://support.quest.com/technical-documents.

Enhancements

Added support for multiple instances — partitioned server — of the Domino Server.

DNPD-82, DNPD-315 (15299, LNG‑174)

Added an Ignore No Logged Database Log Warnings in Backups option that lets you skip Completed with warnings messages for backup jobs that do not include logged databases.

DNPD-232

Added support for recovery of Full Backups without restoring Incremental Backups.

DNPD-234

Improved the plug-in to detect conditions on Linux systems for which a backup or restore job is terminated because the NetVault Process Manager has been stopped on the NetVault Backup Server or Client. If a condition is detected and the shutdown time window allows it, the plug-in terminates the connection to the Domino Server. Note that forced shutdowns might not allow enough time for graceful termination of the processes.

DNPD-237

Added support for targeting a Quest DR Series system.

DNPD-265

Added support for Windows Server 2016.

DNPD-311

Optimized logging for large backups by reducing the number entries in the binary log that NetVault Backup generates.

DNPD-313

If you use the Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) and use the plug-in to back up the items in the DAOS repository, the plug-in performs the restore process as part of a filesystem-style restore instead of using the NetVault Backup Domino agent.

DNPD-316

Added support for Windows Server 2019.

DNPD-318

Added support for Domino Server 9.0.1 FP10.

DNPD-320

Added support for Domino Server 10.0.

DNPD-321

Added support for targeting software-defined Quest QoreStor™ storage devices. For more information on creating and using QoreStor devices, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

DNPD-324

Added support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server 7.

DNPD-325

Added a Mark transaction log files as archived option for backups. If you use Transactional Logging on your Domino Server and you select this option, the plug-in notifies the Domino Server when the Transaction Logs have been archived and are available for reuse by the Domino Server.

DNPD-326

Added support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12.

DNPD-329

Added support for Domino Server 10.0.1.

DNPD-331

Known issues

The conditions that lead to the abnormal termination of the nvnoteagent process without notifying the Lotus Domino Server have been reduced. This abnormal termination resulted in the following error message on Lotus Domino Server Console: Process <name> (<ID>) has terminated abnormally. However, not all causes have not been eliminated. Sporadic events might still occur. For details on removing the Lotus Domino Server Console message, see https://support.quest.com/.

DNPD-23 (15240. LNG‑120)

DAOS configured on a Lotus Domino Server running on Linux/UNIX: When DAOS is configured for a Lotus Domino Server running on Linux or UNIX, cold backups and cold restores might fail with a message from the client that states: “Plug-in terminated unexpectedly” or “Plug-in is down.”

Workarounds for cold restore:

To change the DAOS_LOAD and DAOS_Enable settings from 1 to 0 (DAOS_LOAD=0 and DAOS_Enable=0), edit the Lotus Domino Server’s “notes.ini” file, and try the restore again. If you try this method and if the “notes.ini” file must be restored, restore it after the other items are successfully restored. This process ensures that the modified settings are retained in the active file.
If you try the latter method and the “notes.ini” file does not have to be restored, edit the file again to change the DAOS_LOAD and DAOS_Enable settings back to 1 before you restart the Lotus Domino Server.

Workaround for cold backup:

To change the DAOS_LOAD and DAOS_Enable settings from 1 to 0, edit the Lotus Domino Server’s “notes.ini” file, and try the backup again. After the backup has completed successfully, edit the “notes.ini” file again to change the DAOS_LOAD and DAOS_Enable settings back to 1 before you restart the Lotus Domino Server.
