Issues that are fixed

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Volume to volume migration might fail if there are recovery points that got deleted from the disk.

  • Unable to re-protect the inactive BMR or system protection server workloads because the size calculation in wizard never completes.

  • Backup fails because the protection agent was temporarily unable to respond as it was in an unexpected state.

  • Backup fails due to the error: replica couldn’t be mounted or unmounted due to open handle on the replica.

  • Recovery point schedule is not displayed in Protection Group summary for file-folder or volume backup.

  • DPM service crash occurs when DPMRA is forcefully disconnected, and DPM is unable  to get the OS version of protected machine, while processing the backup failure.

  • Consistency check might fail with Access denied error,  if there is another open handle by a different process, on the volume to be mounted by DPM.

  • DPM Management console might crash while creating a Protection Group, when underlying storage is legacy storage.

  • In some scenarios, DPM Management console might not display Protection Group details in the Details pane.

  • DPM Management console might crash, when navigating to alerts in Monitoring tab or when the job information is getting updated on Recovery wizard.

  • DPM Management console might crash when recovering VMware VMs using an External DPM server.

  • DPM Management console might crash while re-cataloging an imported tape that contains VMWare backups, and then clicking Recovery tab.

In addition to the above fixes, all the issues fixed in SC DPM 2016 Update Rollup 10, and prior UR for DPM 2016  are also includedin SC DPM 2019 UR3.

Note: A fresh installation of the Update Rollup agent could cause a restart of the protected server.
