About this release

Rapid Recovery software delivers fast backups with verified recovery for your VMs and physical servers, on-premises or remote. Rapid Recovery is software built for IT professionals who need a powerful, affordable, and easy-to-use backup, replication, and recovery solution that provides protection for servers and business-critical applications like Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Database, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SharePoint. Using Rapid Recovery, you can continuously back up and protect all your critical data and applications from a single web-based management console.

Rapid Recovery 6.4 is a minor release, with new features and functionality. See New features and Enhancements for details.

NOTE: For more information about how major, minor, and maintenance releases are differentiated, see Rapid Recovery release designations.

Some features, previously integrated software tools, or platforms are no longer supported. For more information on these items, see Deprecated features.

As a minor release, defect fixes and known issues listed in this document are not cumulative.

For information relevant for any other release, please see the edition of release notes specific to that release on the Quest technical documentation website.

Topics in this section include:

Replication conflicts with agentlessly protected virtual machines on SMB shares

In specific cases, users cannot set up replication between 6.1.3 and 6.3 Cores. Users attempting to establish replication from a source Core running Rapid Recovery Core 6.1.3 to a target Core running version 6.2.0 or higher will fail if the target Core has recovery points from an agentlessly protected machine that had shared VHDX disks placed on a network shared volume using the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.

If using such a configuration, all attempts to set up replication will fail (not only protection of agentless VMs). At this time, Quest does not expect to backport a fix. To resolve, upgrade your source Core to release 6.2.0 or later.

Content differences between context-sensitive help and technical documentation

Rapid Recovery Core includes in-product context-sensitive help. Help topics are derived from the Rapid Recovery 6.4 User Guide. To view help topics in a web browser, from the Rapid Recovery Core Console, click [Help menu] or [Help], and from the resulting drop-down menu, select [Help] Help.

Due to publication schedules, sometimes there are content differences between content in the in-product help and in the User Guide, with the latter document being the most recent. In such cases, these differences are typically documented in the Documentation section of the Known issues topic.

Since Rapid Recovery release 6.2, the "REST APIs" appendix appears only in the HTML and PDF versions of the User Guide. This topic, which describes how to download and work with Rapid Recovery REST APIs, does not appear in context-sensitive help. Likewise, as in previous releases, the help topic "Third-party contributions" appears only in context-sensitive help, or from the [About]About menu. This topic does not appear in HTML or PDF versions of the User Guide.
