x360Recover 10.16.0 - Mar 31 2022 [Click to expand...]
March 31 2022
x360Recover 10.16.0 is a feature release focused on a major overhaul to migrations and vault recovery. This release also includes internal functionality enhancements, and the elimination of partner-facing bugs
Select a base image during vault-to-appliance recovery
You can now specify which snapshot on the vault you wish to use as the base image. (The base image is the oldest snapshot to be retried on the appliance. )
Specifying a base image allows you to recover a smaller subset of the protected system data to the appliance than is present on the vault. (This is particularly helpful when your appliance has limited storage space. )
Like resumable migration (described above), vault-to-appliance recovery data is now directly ingested into the receiving appliance. This eliminates the need to first stage the data and means you no longer need to double the disk space available during the recovery process.
This release adds direct ingestion of migrated data (for appliance-to-appliance and vault-to-vault migrations) as well as the ability to specify which snapshot on the vault you wish to use as the base image during vault-to-appliance migration.

x360Recover Bare Metal Restore 126.96.36.199 - Mar 21 2022 [Click to expand...]
x360Recover Bare Metal Restore 188.8.131.52
March 21 2022
x360Recover Bare Metal Restore 184.108.40.206 is a maintenance release, updating the Linux kernel for better hardware support and addressing recovery issues and bug fixes.
Summary of new features
Linux Kernel updated to 5.11
Added IPMITool utility to ISO
Added local cache data ‘lazy open’ feature
Eliminated creation of ‘sparse’ copy-on-write files during local cache recovery
Summary of bug fixes
Fixed issue where a user was allowed to proceed despite an invalid password entry
Dynamically calculate local cache size to address unknown alignment of last block
Show all filesystem types correctly during recovery
Fixed unexpected block alignment issues found during escalation
Previously, during iSCSI initiation, local cache database tables were fully opened and index tables were imported into memory. This process could potentially require a long time, resulting in significant delays.
With this release, local cache database tables are opened in a ‘lazy" manner, so that indexes are only loaded on demand during the recovery process. This results in the recovery process running relatively slowly at first, but recovery speed accelerates up to normal speeds (over the first fine to ten minutes minutes) as local cache indexes are loaded into memory in the background.
Enhanced page width and fixed bugs are featured in this maintenance release.
Recovery Center v 1.7.0 -Mar 015 2022 [Click to expand...]
Recovery Center for x360Recover Direct-to-Cloud (D2C)
March 15 2022
Recovery Center 1.7.0 is a maintenance release. The primary purpose of this release is to provide bug fixes and improve recoverability of some cases
Summary of feature enhancements
Enhanced Hyper-V wizard to match Windows VM creation wizard more closely
Enabled Recover wizard to generate crash dumps
Enabled Recovery Center to operate with appliance data (Future Feature)
Summary of bug fixes
Fixed issue where a protected system volume is returned as RAW disk in file and folder recovery
Fixed password expiration on service accounts
Fixed edge case issue with iSCSI service unable to bring disk online
Fixed issue with missing line breaks in logs
Fixed issue with system failing to boot if system volume is in front of boot partition
Fixed delay in opening window when starting a new recovery
Fixed hang / crash when deleting Hyper-V job if VM was already deleted
Fixed issue with user log-out blocked for some users
Future feature: Recovery Center with appliance endpoints
Recovery Center 1.7.0 implements support for a future feature: working with protected system data on appliances. When this future feature becomes available, users will be able to leverage local appliance backups (instead of local cache) for high-speed recovery of virtual disks or Hyper-V virtual machines
Asynchronous background for local cache verification
In agent orchestration, added agent-side support for managing local cache verification and trimming
Agent-side support added for performing agent uninstall in agent orchestration
Summary of bug fixes
Improved the retriable login of non-existent files in local cache verification
Fixed bug with detecting business hours when throttling is disabled on the schedule
Improved handling of interruptions to local cache during backups
Fixed edge case which might cause inconsistent backups of certain open system files
Fixed handling of non-ASCII characters in volume labels
Local cache verification now runs in the background
Agent 2.32 and newer now perform local cache verification asynchronously in the background. With this release, local cache verification no longer blocks scheduled backups. (Local cache verification will be interrupted and resumed after backups complete.) Local cache verification now runs as a background task with lowest priority and should have no impact on system performance.
What does local cache verification do?
The health status of x360Recover local cache is now visible in the user interface and the process of local cache verification performs automated self-healing for any missing data. If missing blocks are found (e.g. data on the protected system hard drive that is not already in the local cache), a bitmap of missing blocks is created and saved. The x360Recover agent will process the bitmap during the next backup cycle. Any missing blocks will be populated to the local cache repository to ‘self-heal’ the missing data.
Agent 2.32 implements background support for future enhancements to agent orchestration. The ability to remotely install agents will be added to the endpoint manager, as well as settings management for local cache verification and trimming. A future release of x360Recover will expose these features in the UI and enable access to this functionality.
We recommend that Enable Auto Update is enabled on the Settings -> Update Manager page on each of your x360Recover devices.
We also recommend that you enable Auto-Enable Remote Assist When Upgrading so that remote access will be available to our development team should something go wrong with your upgrade.
This will ensure that your x360Recover devices are updated with the latest software enhancements in a timely fashion, and that the x360Recover Support team will have a short window of time to access and repair any troublesome devices without requiring user intervention.
