Announcing BackupEDGE 03.02.01

We are pleased to announce the release of BackupEDGE 03.02.01.

This release introduces support for three new platforms…

-          OpenServer 6 Definitive 2018 (build D2M1)

-          UnixWare 7 Definitive 2018 (build D2M1)

-          ClearOS 7.4 (BIOS or UEFI mode)

Older versions of BackupEDGE will work on these platforms, but RecoverEDGE will not.

This is now the recommended release for all Definitive versions.

RecoverEDGE in the D2M1 products currently has one limitation; AHCI (SATA) mode doesn’t work on virtual optical media in VMware in RecoverEDGE. You can use AHCI or IDE for the virtual disk(s), but should use IDE for the optical drive. We still recommend LSI SAS (mpt) over IDE as the optimal setup for these products in VMware. We are working with Xinuos Engineering to resolve this issue in a future build.

ClearOS is a CentOS (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) derivative that is being delivered on servers by HPE.
