26077 Push upgrade on Linux fails for non-default installation location Using Avamar upgrade to push an Avamar client upgrade to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SuSE Linux Enterprise Server client fails when the Avamar client software is installed in a non-default location. The use of the rpm option --relocate to install the Avamar client in a non-default location causes subsequent push upgrades to fail. NA
249425 Unable to configure Linux Fast Incremental at runlevel 5 in SUSE12 Linux Fast Incremental cannot be configured on SUSE 12 filesystems that are protected at runlevel 5. The interim solution to this problem is to configure the file systems to be protected in run level 3. NA
