We are pleased to announce a new update for the Cristie Virtual Appliance. The 4.2.2 release includes lots of new functionality and bug fixes which bring with it a wealth of benefits.

Headline Enhancements

  • CloneManager Offline now supports replication to vSphere targets. Allowing you to replicate to VMWare vSphere with no compute resources required.
  • Improved handling of multi disk systems for CloneManager Offline replications.
  • Progress monitoring is now more reliable for CloneManager Offline replications.
  • You can now push Cohesity pre-backup scripts as part of software deployment
  • ET target discovery is now faster & more reliable.
  • You can now add multiple CloneManager contracts to the VA.
  • You can now configure the threshold for source machine configuration files, allowing the VA to pull the new configuration more or less frequently than the default 7 days.
  • Windows deployment now checks for any required updates.
