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.
On 15/01/2018, Micro Focus has adjusted the support timeline for Data Protector 9.0x. All dates have been extended by 6 months, so the support for Data Protector 9.0x ends instead of the 06/30/2018 now on 12/31/2018.
For a quick overview all dates are visualized in the following figure.
Following the tradition, a review of 2017 – the worst year in the history of data-protector.org.
There were 5 new articles in the first 2 months before Daniel left us. The more than 275 articles were visited 150,000 times by some 61,000 visitors (page views). The day with the most visitors was the 17th of February when the news of Daniel’s death was published, more than 1400 people visited the site that day. The most popular articles were posts on patch bundles, support matrices, how to install Data Protector licenses, and of course posts from the previous years. The most popular sites remain BRICK and Downloads.
The Patch Bundle A.10.02 (Build 308) for Data Protector 10 has been released on December 7, 2017.
The cumulative patch can be installed on top of A.10.00 or any later Patch Bundle or General Release patch.
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.
in honor of Daniel’s legacy we (Daniel’s widow and Stephan Voss as new admin) decided to bring back life on this page with posts and updates all around data protection. We want to do this with a team of content writers and the help of guest posts, which means if you developed a useful tool or script around the ABR Suite, have created a Howto or Whitepaper, got great ideas which content should be handled in a post, etc. please contact us by email admin @ data-protector.org.
