Dell EMC Avamar 19.7 Release Notes

Avamar Web Restore technical notes

The following technical notes apply to Avamar Web Restore.

Enabling the full display on the Avamar login screen

Avamar Web Restore displays an empty Domain field and an empty Client field on the Avamar login screen. This step prevents the display of domain information during a non-domain login. When using Avamar Web Restore only in a secure domain, change the default setting to enable the full display on the screen.

When the full display is enabled, a list of Avamar domains appears in the Domain field and a list of clients appears in the Client field.

NOTE This change does not affect the Avamar Web Restore LDAP login screen.

To enable the full display on the Avamar log in screen:

  1. Open a command shell and log in:

    • For a single-node server, log in to the server as root.
    • For a multi-node server, log in to the utility node as root.
  2. Switch user to root by typing the following command:

    su -

  3. Change the current working directory by typing the following command:

    cd /usr/local/avamar/etc

  4. Open the Avamar Desktop/Laptop properties file, dtlt.properties, in a plain text editor.
  5. Add the showWRClientList key with the value of true:

    showWRClientList=true

    If the key exists, set the value to true.

  6. Save and close the file.

Special characters in file name replaced during restore

Restoring a file with special characters in the file name results in replacement of the characters in the restored file name. This step occurs when the LANG variable on the Avamar server is set to a locale that does not support the characters. To work around this issue, either rename the file after being restored or change the LANG variable on the Avamar server to the correct locale.

Restore of files with special characters in file name when Avamar server LANG variable is not set

When the LANG variable is not set on an Avamar server, using Avamar Web Restore to restore a file with special characters in the file name fails. To fix this issue, set the LANG variable in /etc/locale.conf and reboot the Avamar server.

Proper UI rendering on Internet Explorer 11 browser

High Security setting in Internet Explorer 11 prevents rendering of JavaScript commands in the Avamar Web Restore pages. To work around this issue, add the Avamar Web Restore server to the trusted sites list in Internet Explorer.

Restore of large number of files

Users cannot restore a large number of files through Avamar Web Restore. Limit each restore task to fewer than 200 files.
