Online Backup Manager Release #: 3.16.8
Release Date: 
Week of 08/16/2016

OBM version 3.16.8 was released as an auto-update hotfix to correct the following issue found within v3.16.7:

Bug Fix:

  • Fixed an issue with environments running older versions of .NET (below .NET 4.5.2) generating an error message, causing OBM backups to appear as though they were failing.  

The error message states: The Microsoft .NET runtime version 4.5.2 is required to update volume image status and machine information.  Please install this framework and try again.

In the event that .NET 4.5.2 is not found in the environment, the message is still generated but is marked as an informational message (“INFO”) instead of an error. Therefore, backup jobs no longer appear to fail.

NOTE: Currently Microsoft runtime environment .NET 4.5.2 is NOT required to backup file data or ShadowProtect images to the Axcient cloud.

However, .NET 4.5.2 is needed to fully monitor ShadowProtect, Acronis and AppAssure backups.  We highly recommend upgrading to .NET 4.5.2 to take full advantage of Axcient's granular monitoring features.
