   x360Recover Agent Release Information

    Agent Version:

    Agent for Linux v.3.4.0

    Release Date(s):

     Targeted release starting Oct 29 2023

Release overview 

x360Recover Agent for Linux 3.4.0 is a feature release. The primary focus of this release is to add support for Red Hat Linux and derivative distributions, as well as address bugs found during support escalations. 

Summary of enhancements

  • Added support for backup of XFS file systems
  • Added support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux based distributions1
  • Added support for Linux Kernel 6.0 – 6.4 
  • Linux systems with LVM volumes will now be recovered as LVM volumes instead of basic volumes
  • Agent supports updating of the underlying Linux OS version on the protected system

1Agent for Linux 3.4.0 supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions (RHEL) 7 and 8, including Red Hat clone distributions including CentOS, AlmaLinux, and Rocky. Due to a Linux kernel compatibility issue, RHEL 9 distributions using XFS file systems cannot currently be supported by the server backend. The Linux kernel version 5.14 included with RHEL9 creates an XFS filesystem that cannot be mounted under previous Linux kernel versions.  Work is in progress to upgrade x360Recover appliances and vaults to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, to be released in 2024 Q1, which will enable full support for RHEL9.

Summary of bug fixes
  • Fixed an issue with redirection of the volume snapshot image to another volume or disk
  • Fixed an issue with backup jobs freezing before completion on some Linux kernel 6.x machines
  • Fixed an issue with backups failing if the appliance reboots during backup
  • Fixed an issue with Local Cache verification information not being sent to backup server
