Dell EMC Avamar 19.7 Release Notes

All backup clients and plug-ins known issues

The following table lists all backup clients and plug-ins known issues in this release:

Table 1. All backup clients and plug-ins known issues
Issue ID Subject/Functional area Description Workaround/Resolution
335714 Backup and restore operation fails for Avamar 19.7 build 81 for all plug-ins When a non-root user on Linux or Unix system performs backup and restore, the operation fails due to the set clientlogs folder permission. Change the clientlogs folder permission from 755 to 777. The folder is located at [install-directory]/var/clientlogs.
32873 Special ACLs are not supported The avtar process does not support backup or restore of special UNIX and Linux ACLs such as setuid and setgid bits, or mandatory file lock bits in newer versions of Linux. NA
52496 Cluster Configuration Tool fails to activate virtual cluster clients in dual stack environments In a dual stack environment, when the Avamar server’s IPv6 address is used during configuration with the Avamar Cluster Configuration Tool, the Cluster Configuration Tool fails to correctly activate virtual cluster clients.

The interim solution to this problem is to use the Cluster Configuration Tool to create the cluster client, but clear the Bring the cluster client online and activate it with the Avamar server checkbox. Then manually create the virtual cluster client and with Avamar Administrator, and in Policy Management, edit the client and select the Activated checkbox in the Edit Client dialog box.

56606 Level 1 backup to Data Domain with over 16 critical disks may default to level 0 After a level 0 backup has been performed for a client with more than 16 critical disks, cache file information for one or more of the disks may no longer be available. The subsequent level 1 backups are also performed as level 0. NA
297679 Manage Dataset for Source Data option has discrepancies for MC AUI When creating a Dataset, under Source Data the File/Folder Path can only be added manually. NA
302911 Backup not supported for SharePoint farms configured with SQL clusterless AAG Avamar requires a Windows cluster to function as designed. Configurations on clusterless architectures such as SQL clusterless AAG are therefore not supported by Avamar. NA
