Building on the top of the 3.0 release of AppSyc, we have just GA’d the first service pack for it,
AppSync 3.0.1 includes the following new features and enhancements:
Agent robustness – Allows you to configure a common time out value for commands on the UNIX agent for time-out flexibility.
Error reporting – The UNIX host based error messages have been enhanced to provide more specific information that helps in identifying the cause of the problem.
Event message accuracy – The event messages have been enhanced to provide more specific information that helps in identifying the cause of the problem.
Enhanced logging for workflows.
Enhanced the Unix plug-in log for readability
Configurable retry for failed jobs – Allows you to set a retry count and retry interval to perform VSS freeze/thaw operation in the case of VSS failures (for example, VSS 10 second timeout issue) that are encountered during copy creation.
The AppSync User and Administration Guide provides more information on how to set a retry count and interval for failed jobs.
Mount multiple copies to the same AIX server – Allows you to mount multiple copies of the protected application consecutively on the same AIX server used as the mount host.
Exchange support for VPLEX – Allows you to create and manage copies of your Exchange data. This addition completes VPLEX support to cover all the five AppSync supported applications (Oracle, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Exchange, VMware Datastore, and File System).
Selective array registration – For XtremIO and VMAX, you can now select the arrays that you want AppSync to manage when the XMS and SMI-S provider are managing multiple arrays.
