Those familiar with NetWorker know that each NetWorker code tree gets patch released one month apart (approximately).  Currently we have following code trees:

  • 8.0SP4 with latest patch being 8.0.4.4 (build 475)
  • 8.1SP3 with latest patch being 8.1.3.7 (build 563)
  • 8.2SP2 with latest patch being 8.2.2.6 (build 985)
  • 8.2SP3 without any patches - just released (build 1100)
  • 9.0 with latest patches being 9.0.0.4 (build 481)

 

Now, good old custom of NetWorker engineering is that they place in public places only list of escalations fixed - not bug nor RFEs which sometimes end up in patch releases.  If you are partner, you should have release to full list.  For the rest of the world, only escalation fix list is available.

 

I missed to publish 8.2.2.5 patch list so I will abuse this post and cover it too as well.

 

First 8.2.2.5 build 978 (now obsolete by 8.2.2.6) has following NW fixes:

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
248826//NMSAP for Solaris is taking windows module license when virtual client is set to yes in client resource.  Note that this is not just NMSAP and Solaris; I had this on Linux with NMDA as well using 8.2.1.x.  I can confirm this is finally fixed (I had nsrd patch previously).  One thing you might need to do before applying this or later release to address is it is to clear current license allocation (which I did by running following command while NW was shut down: printf "option hidden\noption dynamic\n. type: NSR client\nupdate licensed applications: \n" | nsradmin -d /nsr/res/nsrdb -i - )
246782//NW client/server cores on Solaris M-architecture
245854//NetApp CAB NDMP redirected restore fails
179169//NW155630Unable to perform a new operation when a client push operation encouters runtime error or exception
248858/25246/gstclreport returns "null" followed by usage when -C Status is used

 

NMM, officially at least, came with just one patch:

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
246374/24515/nsrbragent process was ended after the backup completed, which cause the NMC continuously report the backup is running.

A month later, as expected and as per schedule, 8.2.2.6 came around with following NW fixes:

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
249664/25444/nsradmin -p nsrexec -C -y "NSR peer information" does not correct all peer errors
247691//VADP restores are failing for VM with snapshot in VC/ESX 6.0

251485/25352/A blank grey window with "OK" button only is received when you try to restore using NMC

 

NMM, officially at least, came with following patches:

Finally, there is NW 9.0.0.4 for those using this new code tree with many changes compared to previous NW main releases.

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
246782//NW client/server cores on Solaris M-architecture
245854//NetApp CAB NDMP redirected restore fails
245187/23025/Cloning from DD to LTO volume intermittently hung. Error : Media Notice: Volume `xxx' ineligible for this operation; Need a different volume from pool `xxx'
251485/25352/A blank grey window with "OK" button only is received when you try to restore using NMC

 

NMM, officially at least, came with following patches:

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
250845/25089/NW 9.0 policy notification logs do not show details with NMM 9.0 backup

And that's the memo.
