ZRM Enterprise 3.2 Release Notes

ZRM Enterprise 3.2 provides new functionality and fixes the issues reported by ZRM Enterprise customers (see the list below). 

Compatibility with previous versions of ZRM Enterprise

  • Amanda Enterprise 3.1.3 Rapid Installer detects the existing installation of Amanda Enterprise 3.0.x and 3.1.  Users can upgrade only from Amanda Enterprise 3.0.2 or 3.1.2 releases. 
  • Amanda Enterprise 3.1.1 and 3.1.0 users will have to uninstall existing installation by running /opt/zmanda/amanda/uninstall script as superuser (preserving the configuration and data) and then run the Amanda Enterprise 3.1.3 installer.
  • The upgrade to 3.1.x does not migrate the existing backup set configurations to 3.1. They have to be migrated using the migration tool that is available for download from Zmanda Network.
  • If the files /etc/zmanda/zmc_aee/zmc_user_dumptypes or /etc/zmanda/zmc_aee/zmc_dumptypes were modified in Amanda Enterprise 3.0.x, they will have to manually merged. An error message will be displayed when you login to ZMC first time if these files have been modified. Please contact Zmanda Support Team for assistance.
  • Upgrade Amanda clients to 3.1 before upgrading the Amanda Enterprise server to 3.1
  • When upgrading from 3.0.x version of Windows Client to 3.1 version, it is recommended to preserve data (answer "YES") during upgrade. If preservation of data is not required, recommendation is to un-install 3.0.x using Add/Remove programs and then install Zmanda Windows Client 3.1.
  • During Windows Client upgrade to 3.1, the amandabackup user is deleted and re-created.
  • Zmanda Windows Client 3.1 no longer uses Zmanda key container for storing backup encryption certificates. To recover encrypted backup archives created using Zmanda Windows Client 3.0.x to another machine, it is still necessary to import Zmanda key container and required encryption certificates on the target machine for restoration.
  • Zmanda Windows Client 3.1.2 works with Amanda Enterprise 3.1.3 server.

Compatibility with Amanda Enterprise Server

The Amanda backup server may reside on the same machine as ZRM server. The order of installation of ZRM 3.1 and Amanda Enterprise 3.1.3 matters. This procedure is described here.
