on Februar 15, 2017 Daniel Braun, the owner and mastermind of this website passed away unexpectedly. This is an unbelievable shock and loss for everybody.
The Patch Bundle A.10.04 (Build 182) for Data Protector 10 has been released on May 22, 2018.
Data Protector A.10.03 was released as a full install therefore the cumulative patch 10.04 can only be installed on top of A.10.03. A direct upgrade from A.10.00, A.10.01 or A.10.02 is not possible!
It is recommended to install it on all Installation Servers (IS) and the Cell Managers (CM). Then push the new packages from the IS to all Data Protector client systems to get the latest fixes into effect.
This patch can also be installed locally on Windows Data Protector client systems. In this case only components that were locally installed on the client will be updated. Linux and UNIX clients still require an Installation Server while updated packages can be extracted from the Linux or UNIX Installation server manually.
Transitioning to the new Consolidated Scheduler, introduced with Data Protector A.10.00, can be a challenge. Especially when customized schedules have been used in the Legacy Scheduler to overcome former product limitations. A common example are manually modified schedule files to execute jobs at the last weekend of the month.
Data Protector A.10.03 improves the overall upgrade experience from previous versions such as 8.1x and 9.x. During the upgrade existing Legacy- and Advanced Scheduler schedules are migrated into the new Consolidated Scheduler. Once the upgrade is complete a summary is displayed by the installer. Details on schedule migration are logged into the file migration.log on the Cell Manager.
Successfully migrated schedule files (Legacy Scheduler) are kept in the corresponding directories on the Cell Manager but are renamed to SpecName.migrate. Empty schedule files are skipped. This allows manual modifications to any non-successfully migrated schedule files and re-run the schedule migration at a later point in time using omnidbutil -migrate_schedules.
