This section lists enhancements implemented in Rapid Recovery release 6.2 (or enhancements not previously described in technical product documentation).

Improved reporting

From the Core Console, you can now generate a summary report, currently known as the Core Nostalgia Report.This report is available on demand, or based on a schedule, and provides a classic summary of information about your Core, using pie and trend charts and tables. This report provides a summary view of job statistics success, repository summaries by GB, snapshots success, repository usage trends, and a summary of protected machines on your Core.

For more information about report settings, see the Rapid Recovery User Guide topic "About Rapid Recovery reports." In that section, this report is described as the Classic summary report.

Additionally, new features are available in Core settings supporting the generation of reports. In addition to setting a default font for your reports, you can now establish a default paper size and page orientation. A wide range of paper sizes is supported.

The ability to specify larger paper sizes and page orientation increases flexibility and legibility of your report outputs. The default page orientation is landscape, since most reports are designed with several columns of output in mind.

For more information about report settings, see the Rapid Recovery User Guide topic "Managing report settings."

Enhanced support for vSphere/ESXi 6.5

Beginning with release 6.1, Rapid Recovery provided limited support for vSphere/ESXi 6.5, including the following functions:

Additionally, as of release 6.2, support for vSphere/ESXi 6.5 has been enhanced as described in the following points:

In release 6.2, you can now export a virtual machine to vCenter/ESXi 6.5 even if the source machine uses the Secure Boot option. To use Secure Boot, the source Virtual Machine must have an Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) system partition, and the target exported VM must be ESXi 6.5 or later.
When protecting virtual machines agentlessly on ESXi 6.5, you can now protect encrypted VMs. Rapid Recovery release 6.2 now leverages the Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK) for vSphere 6.5, which supports encrypted VMs.

Changes in SQL Server versions supported

New version supported.

Microsoft released SQL Server 2017 for general availability on October 2, 2017.

Rapid Recovery supports protection of machines with SQL Server 2017, including agent-based and agentless protection. This includes application support for SQL Server. Backup snapshots are application-aware, and SQL attachability is supported. DocRetriever for SharePoint release 6.2 also supports this version of SQL Server.

Old version deprecated.

End of life for SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 is July 9, 2019. Users are advised to move to a current version of SQL Server that is supported by both Microsoft and Quest in advance of that date.
