The Patch Bundle A.09.09 (Build 114) for Data Protector 9 has been released on March 30, 2017.
The cumulative patch can be installed on top of A.09.00 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.
