Cristie VA 2.8 What’s New

Headline enhancements

Our latest release includes volumes of new functionality which brings with it a wealth of benefits. Some of the key highlights include:

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is now a supported target hypervisor for Recoveries, Simulations & Replications.
  • You can now Simulate Protect for VMs recoveries.
  • EMC Avamar 19.1 is now supported for Recover & Simulate operations.
  • EMC NetWorker 19.1 is now supported for Recover & Simulate operations.
  • You can now configure reports to email/alert you if your DR config dates are old, or your licenses are expiring soon.
  • BMR Proxy logs are now included as part of the “Download logs” feature found in advanced options. (Previously this was a manual step taken by the user).
  • Virtual Appliance now includes latest RHEL patches.
  • Service status is now shown in the main Appliance GUI. This will alert you if any of the Cristie services are not ready.
  • Features can now be enabled/disabled from the terminal.
  • Machine discovery is now faster.
  • Importing hotfix ISOs now retains the “PE5/PE10” information for Windows ISOs.

  • Web boot is now included in the Cristie Appliance.
  • BMR Proxy discovery is now faster and more reliable

Bug Fixes

  • You could not create a migration job without also selecting to “sync”. This is now fixed.
  • CloneManager uninstall (from Estate Management) did not remove the system entry from Estate Management. This is now fixed.
  • Manually installing CBMR, then running a backup would sometimes fail. This is now fixed.
  • Uninstalling older versions of the products from machines (via Estate Management) would sometimes fail. This is now fixed.
  • Incremental backup job would always run, even if the job was set to full. This is now fixed.
  • Previous releases would not allow a “.” character in vSphere VM names. This is no longer an issue.
  • Proxy deployment would report success before both proxies has been discovered. This is now fixed.
