Dell EMC Avamar 19.7 Release Notes

Avamar server and Avamar Virtual Edition installation and upgrade

For a physical Avamar server, a technical representative must perform the installation or upgrade. Downgrading the Avamar server software to an earlier version is not supported under any circumstances.

Support to upgrade Avamar from 7.5.1 with SLES version 11 SP1, SLES version 11 SP3, SLES version 11 SP4, SLES version 12 SP4, SLES version 12 SP5 to Avamar 19.7. This upgrade will also upgrade SLES to SLES 12 SP5, which is the required version for 19.4 and later release.

The client downloads, which provide the ability to download the current client versions from the server’s Documents and Downloads web interface, are installed along with the server upgrade. The upgrade is provided by the Avamar Server Upgrade team unless a request is made that the team refrains from installing. However, the upgrade team does not install the Avamar Upgrade installers, which provide the client kits for the Avamar Client Manager's automated update feature. This option is a customer-upgradeable kit which can be obtained from the upgrade information. For instructions on application of the client installers, see the Avamar Client-Only System Upgrades Technical Note available on the online support website at

AVE can be deployed using M5 instance in AWS. It can work normally after being deployed using M5 instance. The M5 instance is a Nitro-based instance. M5 instances are built on the AWS Nitro System and Elastic Block Storage (EBS) volumes are exposed as NVMe block devices on Nitro-based instance. The Nitro system is a collection of AWS- built hardware and software components which enable high performance, high availability, and high security. For more information, see the Amazon EC2 M5 Instances.

To install a 16 TB AVE on Azure, customers must use the D14_v2 instance type instead of A9 since A9 will no longer be supported by Azure.

To install a 0.5 TB or 2 TB AVE, support new instance type A2m_v2.
