Bug Fixes

  • Asset filter would not be removed anymore when returning from the Recovery Point page to the Assets page.
  • Specifying tag in the Tenant results in timestamp=tag on the RP would fail in some cases. This was fixed.
  • The policy did not run if the start time was later than the end time. This was fixed.

Elastio CLI

  • elastio file restore did not skip inaccessible files and continue processing the restore. This was fixed.
  • Elastio CLI would exit with 0 exit status if filesystem backup failed to backup some files. This was fixed.
  • Block backup was failing for the RAID device on Windows. This was fixed.
  • mount rp would sometimes fail after several attempts on Windows. This was fixed.
  • First umount rp attempt would fail with “The system cannot find the file specified” on Windows.

  • iscan-ebs-snapshot would occasionally fail to scan several snapshots. This was fixed.

Known Issues
