CBMR 8.1.2 for Windows Released!

I am pleased to announce that CBMR 8.1.2 for Windows has been released.

The headline features for this release are:

  • Added support for IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) client version 8.1.2.0 (note: not supported on all Windows OS’s). This version of the client is now included in the WinPE5 and WinPE10 DR environments. Note at the time of release the 8 version of the client is not available for 32-bit OS’s; therefore the new WinPE2 DR environment contains client version 7.1.8.0 only. Note: DR recoveries require the use of either a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) certificate when using server version 8.1.2 or later.

  • Added dissimilar hardware support for Windows 2016 server recoveries in conjunction with a new WinPE10 based DR environment. Note you will need to download this CRISP fileset separately to build the ISO/USB flash drive.

  • Added the ability to specify a SSL/TLS certificate for an IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) DR sequence. For IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) servers version 8.1.2.0 or later SSL/TLS security is enabled by default.

  • Added the ability to specify a SSL/TLS certificate when preparing an answer file for unattended recovery for an IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) DR sequence. For IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM) servers version 8.1.2.0 or later SSL/TLS security is enabled by default.

  • Added the ability to configure network routing during a DR sequence. Also added shortcuts for this and general network configuration to the main DR environment desktop.

  • Product upgrades are now summarised in the suite installer prior to the start of the component installation. The upgrade warning prompt is no longer displayed and upgrades now proceed uninterrupted (unless errors are detected).

  • The product is supplied with new versions of CRISP 8.2.3 and CDS 4.7.5.

  • Documentation updated for this release.

This CBMR version is available to licensed customers via the Cristie FTP site.
