The following enhancements have been added to Rapid Recovery 6.3, or were not previously documented in earlier releases.
Rapid Recovery release 6.3 supports Windows Server 2019, except for volumes using the using Resilient File System (ReFS).
Rapid Recovery users can protect, restore, and export Windows 2019 servers and clusters.
NOTE: Following our standards, the operating system on the Core must be greater than or equal to the OS version on protected machines, for both Agent-based and agentless protection. For more information, see the Rapid Recovery 6.3 Release Notes topic "Rapid Recovery Core and Agent compatibility."
Rapid Recovery does not support ReFS volumes on Windows Server 2019. Because ReFS is not supported, Rapid Recovery release 6.3 does not allow protection of ReFS volumes on Windows Server 2019 machines. If you upgrade an already-protected machine to Windows Server 2019, Quest recommends removing ReFS volumes from protection.
A new report, the Core Nostalgia Report, was introduced in Rapid Recovery Core release 6.2.0.
In release 6.3, this report has been renamed the Classic Summary Report, to more accurately reflect the information depicted in the report. For more information on this report, see the following topics in the Rapid Recovery 6.3 User Guide:
No other changes to reporting were introduced in this release.
Rapid Recovery now supports SQL Server 2017. You can protect a SQL Server with Rapid Recovery Agent or agentlessly, taking advantage of application support such as truncating SQL logs (identifying available space on the protected server) and performing SQL attachability checks (verifying the integrity of recovery points containing SQL databases, and ensuring that all supporting data and log files are available in the backup snapshot).
