What's New in the VMware Consolidated Backup 1.0.2 Release

This release of VMware Consolidated Backup, offers the following improvements:
  • VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) now supports Windows Server 2003 R2 on the proxy server.
  • VCB can now ignore any inactive paths to a SAN LUN. Previous releases of VCB required you to deactivate all inactive paths showing up on the VCB proxy or the backup process could fail. With VCB version 1.0.2, this step is no longer required. Please see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2195414 for more information.
  • A bug has been fixed that prevented VCB from reporting an error when using the “browse-end” script for several third-party backup software solutions. With the fix, if you specify a wrong backup job name or enter any illegal arguments with the “browse-end” script, an error is reported.
