NetVault Plug-in for VMware 10.0.5 - Release Notes

Dell™ NetVault™ Backup Plug‑in for VMware® 10.0.5, Revision 1

About Dell NetVault Backup Plug‑in for VMware 10.0.5

Dell NetVault Backup Plug‑in for VMware (Plug‑in for VMware) protects your virtual machines from disaster, media failure, and data corruption. Its intuitive, easy-to-use interface gives you a single, centralized console to configure backup and restore policies for your virtual environments. The Plug‑in for VMware is integrated with VMware vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). It allows you to protect your virtual environment without the need for complex scripting or deep understanding of VMware® ESX® or VADP internals. The plug-in minimizes downtime by allowing you to restore complete virtual machine images or individual files quickly and reliably with minimal interaction. Through automatic integration with a wide range of backup devices, your virtualized data can be protected and safely stored off-site to meet your disaster recovery and business continuity goals.


Table 1. Enhancements
Added a restore option Split Restored Virtual Disks, which can be used when restoring virtual disk files to the local file system to specify whether the “.vmdk” files should be split into 2GiB files or restored as a single disk file. The check box is selected by default.

Resolved issues

Modified the plug-in to replace invalid characters in filenames with underscore characters (“_”). Previously, file-level restores from image-level backups failed if a filename contained invalid characters, which were not supported by the host OS.
Added a configuration setting Read Block Size, which can be used to specify the number of disk sectors to read or write per operation. The default value is 65536 sectors. Setting a large block size for read and write operations can improve backup performance.
Corrected an issue that caused a job to remain in “waiting for media” state after the Media request timeout interval expired; the job did not fail and it had to be aborted.
Modified the plug-in to remove BKB_SNAP snapshots from previous failed backups.
Modified the function that incorrectly deleted the msvcr71.dll file from the NetVault Backup “bin” directory during plug-in installation.
