Rebooting the Unitrends appliance is recommended upon upgrading to this release.
Beginning in release 10.7.10, updates to backup and backup copy components require access to kaseyagroup-appliance-registry.jfrog.io. Before upgrading your appliance, open port 443 outbound from the Unitrends appliance to kaseyagroup-appliance-registry.jfrog.io for the HTTPS protocol.
New Delete Final Backup setting for the default 30-day retention policy
Retention settings assure that the necessary recovery points are available on your appliance. Appliances are configured with a default backup retention policy of 30 days. This 30-day policy is applied to each protected asset. For appliances imaged with release 10.7.11 or higher, the 30-day default retention policy enables the appliance to purge any backup that is no longer held by the policy.
The 30-day default retention policy applies to appliances imaged with release 10.7.8 or higher. This default policy does not apply to appliances that were originally imaged with an earlier release. Release 10.7.8 was generally available on September 6th, 2023.
The Delete Final Backup option was added to the 30-day default retention policy in release 10.7.11. For appliances imaged with release 10.7.11 or higher, Delete Final Backup is enabled for this default policy. To enable this feature on older appliances, check the Delete Final Backup box when adding or editing a policy.
Upgrading an appliance does not modify its retention policies in any way.
