Former release

Important changes

Attention: Important Changes


Unique Sesam LIS file names by adding saveset id
     Old name:
     TEST_BACKUP-20120103_002_SF.lis
     #
     New name:
     TEST_BACKUP-20120103_002_SF20120103125610547@3E8MOpjXHVk.lis
Same is done for backup log and segment files.
Files will be renamed during update.
Zarafa backup extension
Because of a major redesign of Zarafa extension, SEP sesam Client (which includes this extension) has to be updated to version 4.0.5 before making a restore. Backups still will work. See Zarafa section for a list of enhancements.



Known Issues

Known Issues:


Media Handling

Media could be overwritten during INIT since Version 4.0.1.1
Fixed: 4.0.3.33

Windows

sm_disaster wrong version in Kit 4.0.5.26
Fixed with servicepack sm_disaster
Since SBC 3.6A1 Kit 4.0.1.1 normal file system DIFF/INCR backup - without VSS option - skipped files if one upper directory is unchanged.
Fixed: 4.0.5.13
Backup has ended successfully even if a VSS volume has disappeared during backup (If VSS Writer has destroyed a volume snapshot it was not noticed by the SBC program).
Fixed: 4.0.3.20 (with state 'warning') / 4.0.5.22 (with state 'error')
Backing up Lotus Notes on Windows is reading the file data from original database since Sesam Version 4.0
Fixed: 4.0.3.30
Since Version 4.0.5.1 Backup of Lotus Notes Databases with a size bigger than 2 GB failed with Error "Not a database"
Fixed: 4.0.5.17 plus patch sbcln.dll; 4.0.5.20/.22
Microsoft VSS Volume-Backup includes all available VSS-Writers.
Writers can be excluded in Exclude-List with e.g.:
VSS:Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writer 
Log truncation is not performed when using Exchange Server DAG VSS Writer with Level INCR.
No Fix available. Use the database hosting Exchange Server instead of the DAG Server.
Backup of MS Exchange DAG isn't supported yet
Fixed: 4.0.5.19
Powershell scripts do not work automatically with Powershell version 1
Workaround: Adjust permission of Powershell policies as described here
FIX: Install version 2 of Powershell
Problem with x86 operating systems, using more then 3.25 GB RAM
Workaround: Either reduce to 3.25 GB RAM or migrate your system to an x64 operating system. This is necessary since SEP sesam requires 64 KB blocks for LTO (Linear Tape Open), but those systems can only write 32 KB blocks on tape drive due to the automatically activated PAE (Physical Address Extension). Also a loader cannot be accessed properly.
Update fails with "sm_setup" error with MSI.
This could happen, if 2 backslashes are included from the original installation.
Workaround: Open sm.ini and check the lines beginning with gv_ro_bin respectively gv_ro. If the installation path includes two backslashes (i.e. c:\\sepsesam) delete one backslash and try again.
FIX: Uninstall old version and install new package.
Fixed: v4.0.5.16
Uninstall using Control Panel -> 'Programs and Features' fails.
Workaround: Uninstall using a new sesam installation package by double executing the exe and selecting Uninstall.
Fixed: v4.0.5.16
Windows Update from v4.0.5.16 failed due to Transform error
Workaround: Execute the batch file fixTransforms.cmd from our download center fixTransforms.cmd on your system. And try to update again.
Fixed: v4.0.5.17

VMWare

Failed vSphere restore will be reported as successfully finished in restore results
Workaround: Check restore log


Discontinued SEP sesam Server support

SEP sesam Server package installation and support is no longer offered on the following systems:

  • None

This does not affect SEP sesam Client packages. For a definitive list of supported SEP sesam Clients please see SEP sesam Support Matrix.

New supported systems

Univention UCS 3.0

Debian package install scripts have been adopted to find correct PostgreSQL binaries.

Linux with glibc 2.0

Because of customer requests for a more recent SEP sesam Client packages on quite old Linux systems, like Debian Sarge, a generic tar-ball 4.0.5 package has been build again. It includes certain extensions like for MySQL, PostgreSQL and OpenLDAP.

End of maintenance announcement for older SEP sesam versions

  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.6 will end on June 30th, 2012.
  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.4 has been ended on December 31st, 2010.
  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.0 has been ended on December 31st, 2009.

This does not affect SEP sesam Client packages for which there are no newer versions available.

New Features

Data Store

GUI

  • Browsing vSphere via vCenter
  • The GUI now includes support for Dovecot and Courier IMAP

Unique LIS filenames

Name of SEP sesam journal (LIS) and backup log files include UUID based saveset id now. So two SEP sesam Servers can be merged or a medium from anther server can be imported now without having conflicts because of duplicate file names.

Windows

MSI Installer

SEP sesam Windows packages are built as standard MSI packages.

The default for SEP sesam program data (var path) is now under "%ProgramData%\SEPsesam\var".

This is according to http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cjacks/archive/2008/02/05/where-should-i-write-program-data-instead-of-program-files.aspx

The disadvantage is that this folder is hidden and therefore not visible in Windows Explorer unless the option to show hidden folder is not set.

The default path for the SEPsesam binaries is still %ProgramFiles%\SEPsesam.

The English and German MSI Manuals are available at http://wiki.sepsoftware.com/wiki/index.php/MSI_Manual and at http://wiki.sepsoftware.com/wiki/index.php/MSI_Benutzerhandbuch

Extensions

VMware vSphere

  • Support for VMware vSphere 5.
  • More VM properties are saved now by using vSphere Java API. Old backups can be restored by new client, but to get all advantages a new full backup of VMs is recommended.

Zarafa

Several enhancements have been made for SEP sesam Zarafa extension:

  • Full, differential and incremental backups are supported
  • Parallel export of Zarafa mail stores
  • Support Zarafa multi-company servers
  • Much better error handling and enhanced logging

SEP sesam Client has also to be updated to version 4.0.5 to use these functions. Backups will still work with older versions, but for restore new client version is mandatory.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) is supported with 2 new task types:

  • SharePoint Server - to store the server components data,
  • SharePoint Sites - to store the site collections.

SharePoint Server backs up the SharePoint Server components data to allow a restore of a Farm component. The SharePoint Sites backs up site collections with documents to allow a restore of a whole site collection or to restore a single document within a site collection.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

To support the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and the backup of replicated Exchange Server 2010 databases (which may be stored in a clustered Exchange Server 2010 environment via Database Availability Groups (DAG)) the new task types 'Exchange Server 2010' and 'Exchange Server DAG' are available.

  • Exchange Server 2010 - to back up the databases which are mounted on the given server,
  • Exchange Server DAG - to back up the Exchange Server 2010 databases that are replicated via DAG.

With 'Exchange Server DAG' even the data from a remote Exchange Server 2010 can be backed up on a separate host which is a member of the DAG and holds a replica of the databases.

Notice: The Exchange Server DAG is still under QA and will be released with a follow up 4.0.5 Kit.

Major Fixes

  • SEP sesam reported a license timeout warning, even with a valid license file installed
  • Avoid retry of writing a tape mark, if a hard error (e.g. CRC error), occurred. This could lead to a data loss, because tape will be re-winded and then tape mark is written at the beginning of tape. (Windows only)
  • Backup Lotus Notes on Windows: File data has been read from original database since SEP sesam Version 4.0 instead of snapshot file.
  • Windows: Since SBC 3.6A1 Kit 4.0.1.x normal file system DIFF/INCR backup - without VSS option - skipped files if one upper directory is unchanged.
  • Backup has ended successfully even if a VSS volume has disappeared during backup (If VSS Writer has destroyed a volume snapshot it was not noticed by the SBC program).
  • Migration of savesets where backup source includes special characters (&,*[,]...) interpreted by shell failed. Saveset information, which includes original backup source, has not been quoted correctly leading to a syntax error from shell or cmd.exe. Now special characters are transferred base64 encoded.
  • vSphere backup ends with error Wrong thread if more than one VMDK is saved over SAN: This is a known bug in VMware's VDDK library. SEP has implemented a work around for this issue.

    • BUGFIX: In case of MOSS document restore with more than one document the search algorithm for the sitecoll file was wrong
    • BUGFIX: (#14160) Avoid 'Error while unpacking data. Bad archive.' when restoring Exchange Server database to RSG (fixed already in 4.0.3.34 but not in 4.0.3.39-Solveos)
    • bugfix: Set gszLisFile in ARGUMENTS_FROM_DB() to allow proper retrieving of 'IMAP:CYRUSIMAP' prefix for Dovecot or other IMAP task_types
    • BUGFIX: CREATE_STPD_SEL_FILE(): If the second media was retrieved then count items of first media immediate to avoid rewind (corruption) of ssl file
    • change: CREATE_SLL_LINES() Use strlcpy to set correct szOffset to offset2 for Exchange Server item restore
    • bugfix: Zarafa mailbox retrieving with prefix '/' to avoid matching with user mailbox, e.g. when seeking for 'sep.de.data.zbk || sep.de.index.zbk'
    • bugfix: Exchange Restore select all files of a mailbox database (.edb plus .log) via offsets, retrieve first file with offset1 and select all until offset2.
    • bugfix: RESORT_SLL() strip off saveset and line_counter from sel lines for SLL file
    • bugfix: The algorithm in SEL_GEN_EXPAND_DIRS() worked with already blown up ssl file
    • change: Use extended sel file .ses file in PREPARE_SLL_FILE() to avoid use of original .sel file when extending with special files, e.g. spbrtoc.xml for MOSS_Server and may be reordering RESORT_SLL(). With the ses file the LIS file is used for non-generation restore
    • CHANGE: Do not modify the SEL file. The SEL file remains in same order then LST file. The SLL file is now used to be reordered according to LIS file, it is used for item specific retrieving of containers (e.g. mailbox database).
    • Now we have:
    • .sel file from GUI user with selected items (files or other items, e.g. emails) - alphabetically sorted (derived from LST file via GUI selection) - needed for restart of restore task.
    • .ses - derived from .sel - may be sorted identically to LIS file for non generation restore
    • .sll is derived from .ses file, may be extended with container files derived from items, e.g. database - sorted like LST in case of generation restore
    • .ssl the STPD SEL file, blown up file from .sll with LIS, without mailbox items
    • work/smslis/{ID}.sel file - derived from .ssl file. In case of a migrated saveset mapped to items of migrated saveset from LIS file
    • .msl file with mailbox items for sbc to extract from container files, generated from .sll file with LIS
