Release Notes for Recovery Series, Recovery Max, ION/ION+, and Unitrends Backup 10.6.7

This document describes new features and fixes introduced in the 10.6.7 release. For upgrade instructions and considerations, reference the Upgrade Guide for Recovery Series, Recovery MAX, ION/ION+, and Unitrends Backup.



Windows agents

This release includes updated Windows core and bare metal agents. The 10.6.7 core agent is recommended for most Windows assets and is required for Windows fixes in this release.

Consider the following before upgrading the Windows agent:

  • Secure agent pairing – Beginning in Windows agent release 10.6.6, a secure pairing is automatically established between the appliance and the Windows agent on each of its protected assets. This pairing enables Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt data and authenticate connections between appliances and agents. Communication between appliances and agents is only allowed if there is a matching (paired) certificate.
    • If upgrading from a pre-10.6.6 agent release, backups may fail until the pairing completes successfully (this can take up to two hours).
    • The secure agent pairing feature is not used to protect these clustered configurations: Hyper-V clusters, SQL clusters, and file server clusters. To protect these clusters, install agent version 10.6.7. The 10.6.7 agent detects the cluster and disables secure agent pairing.
    • For additional requirements, see Installing or upgrading the Windows agent in the Upgrade Guide for Recovery Series, Recovery MAX, ION/ION+, and Unitrends Backup.
  • Image-level backups – If upgrading from a pre-10.6.3 agent release, the asset's next Windows image-level backup is promoted to a full.
  • The Windows agent does not require rebooting after updating as of version 10.6.1. A reboot is required if you upgrade from an agent before 10.6.1.



The table below lists fixes included in this release. Unless stated otherwise, you can apply each fix by simply upgrading your appliance.

Component   Fix

During a power outage, the Unitrends Recovery Series appliance needs to be shutdown cleanly. You can use your APC UPS to issue a clean shutdown for Recovery Series appliances. (For details on configuring this feature, see this article: Issue a clean shutdown from an APC UPS.)
This release fixed an issue where an APC UPS COMLOST alert could be generated in error upon restarting the appliance.

migration from
CentOS 6 to
CentOS 7
  • Fixed an issue where secure agent pairing configuration was not migrated properly to CentOS7, causing backups to fail.
  • Fixed an issue found in some CentOS 7 physical appliances where the IP rules settings were not applied upon booting, resulting in asymmetric routing and other unexpected networking behavior.
secure agent
  • Fixed an issue where secure agent pairing could fail if an alias containing part of the asset's hostname was present in the appliance's /etc/hosts file, causing backups to fail.
  • Fixed an issue where secure agent pairing could fail in some cases where the asset was configured with multiple network adapters, causing backups to fail. This fix requires the 10.6.7 agent.
