Rapid Recovery 6.2.1 - Release Notes

Linux operating system support changes

The following Linux operating system support changes apply to Rapid Recovery release 6.2 and later:

Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10, 14.10, 15.04, 15.10. These OS distributions have reached end of life, and are therefore no longer tested. Agent, Agentless, and Live DVD support for these OS is therefore limited.

Tiering repositories

Tiering repositories deprecated

A tiering repository is a secondary repository defined on your Core into which recovery points can be relocated from a primary DVM repository. Once they are moved, recovery points are deleted from your primary DVM repository. The Core continues to manage the relocated recovery points until they are eventually rolled up and deleted.

The tiering feature is expected to be discontinued in a future release of Rapid Recovery.

Kaseya Add-on

Kaseya VSA and Rapid Recovery Core integration is deprecated

Kaseya integration with Rapid Recovery is deprecated. Release 6.2.x is the last release in which this integration is supported.

Kaseya Virtual System Administrator (VSA) is remote monitoring and management software used by IT professionals, including managed service providers. Quest provides a plug-in, the Rapid Recovery Add-on for Kaseya, to help Kaseya VSA users manage Rapid Recovery Cores from the Kaseya interface.

Rapid Recovery release 6.2 included a new Rapid Recovery Add-on for Kaseya. If using Kaseya to manage your release 6.2 Core, you should upgrade to the 6.2 version of the Add-on. The Add-on is backward compatible (you can run the 6.2 Add-on with older versions of Rapid Recovery Core). The reverse is not true. The version of Core must not be later than the Add-on for Kaseya version.

Azure Service Management

Rapid Recovery support for Azure Service Management is deprecated

For some time, Microsoft supported two sets of APIs: the original Azure deployment technology, Azure Service Management (ASM, known as the Classic deployment model), and its replacement, Azure Resource Manager (ARM).

Microsoft announced that support for ASM is retired as of June 30, 2018. Accordingly, support for ASM within the context of Rapid Recovery is deprecated.

Rapid Recovery release 6.2.1 continues to support some features of ASM, such as virtual export to containers created in Azure using the classic deployment model.

Future releases of Rapid Recovery will exclusively support Azure Resource Manager, and will only support Azure containers created using ARM.
