Cloud Data Manager

V1.8 Release Notes

Major Features and Enhancements

  • Azure Active Directory (AD) authentication support for Microsoft Azure cloud users. Model9 introduces Azure Active Directory (AD) authentication and proxy support, providing simplified access to Azure’s public cloud. Model9 users can now use their enterprise-provided AD credentials to gain access to the Azure cloud. See Microsoft Azure configuration for more details.

  • Ease migration from CA-Disk to cloud data management. Gain better control of backup policies with the ability to specify per-policy retention periods and deletion dates. This capability helps smooth the migration from legacy backup software such as CA-Disk to modern, cloud-oriented solutions. See Backing up data sets for more details.

    UI generations or period options
  • Enhanced system health visibility. Version 1.8 provides at-a-glance system health and connectivity data for the Model9 management server and database, as well as the object storage service. See Server status for more details.

  • Improved access to log data. Mainframe users can download server logs for advanced analysis - without having to set up an SSH session on the Linux server. See Where to look for error messages for more details.

    In addition, log summary reports can be viewed on the Model9 browser page without having to open and scan individual log files. See Viewing resources that were created by an activity for more details.

    UI activity summary
  • Enhanced CLI security permissions verification. See Security considerations for more details.

V1.8 Resolved Issues

  • In the DASHBOARD page, the aggregated “Stored in cloud” did not match the sum of the ״Size in cloud״ column of the activities below, due to differences in the calculation for display. All the calculations are now unified to reflect 1KB=1024b instead of 1KB=1000b as it was in some cases in the UI.

  • Fixed import for data sets with FILESEQNO greater than 9.

  • Fixed the license warning banner display so it will not obscure the the top-right 3-dot menu.

  • Fixed the UI multi-delete to update the 'Deleting' count for failed deletions.

  • Fixed the policy's generations field to be disabled when disabling the "use SMS policy" option.

  • Fix bug in auto-recall hook that can cause a deadlock in rare conditions.

V1.8 Known Issues

  • None
