From Thursday, February 22nd, 2018 (02/20/2018) through Friday, March 2nd, 2018 (03/02/2018), Axcient will release an update to Replibit Appliances, Vaults, and Global Management Portals (GMPs).
The main purpose of the release is to resolve issues introduced in the most recent Replibit release (v2018.01.23).
Hotfix Issues Resolved
Issue with Replibit Appliances when a drive was previously replaced:
- Partners that recently replaced one or more storage hard drives within their local hardware appliance, may have experienced an issue after applying the v2018.01.23 update where the storage pool appears offline. This update fixes the issue.
- Under certain conditions, the previous Replibit update intermittently failed during the update process. This update fixes the configuration, and adds additional checks to prevent an upgrade failure.
- The previous Replibit update failed due to incorrect code version packages. This update fixes and validates the configuration before an upgrade to prevent a failure.
- The previous Replibit update failed under certain conditions due to critical file I/O latencies. This update provides a graceful back-off and retry logic to prevent a failure.
Issue with OS logs overflow which causes performance issues:
- Partners on an occasional basis experienced performance issues with the Replibit software when the OS logs grew too large. This update modifies the log rotation, and adds utilization triggers to prevent the OS logs from growing too large.
Bug Fixes (general)
- NTP times-sync on boot which will fix some backup issues and snapshot name issues
- Minor bug fixes
