Those familiar with NetWorker know that each NetWorker code tree gets patch released one month apart (approximately).  Currently we have following code trees (I removed 8.0.x tree from the view):

  • 8.1SP3 with latest patch being 8.1.3.8 (build 580)
  • 8.2SP2 with latest patch being 8.2.2.6 (build 985)
  • 8.2SP3 without any patches (build 1100)
  • 9.0 with latest patches being 9.0.0.4 (build 488)

 

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.

 

Here is the list for 8.1.3.8 fixes:

Ticket/Escalation/IDDescription
252818/25354/nsrexecd can core dump because shssn_run_process_env() modifies passed in attrlist
251485/25352/A blank grey window with "OK" button only is received when you try to restore using NMC

And that's the memo.
