Thread: Licensing & Upgrading questions

  1. #1

    Default Licensing & Upgrading questions

    We have some confusion regarding upgrade from V6 to V7 version.

    We have an existing system with DSS V6 Lite version with added 2TB storage extension. We want upgrade this to V7 Lite and add the 2TB plus another 8TB extension, will the storage extension for 2TB need to be repurchased with the 8TB? or will the old extension key work in V7 Lite?

    Also, if we setup data file replication between another new fresh install of DSS V7 Lite and the old DSS V6 Lite, will it work as expected?

    If we backup to a dynamic volume in V6 Lite, will it restore to V7 Lite after a fresh install correctly?

    Thanks in advance.

    Serd.

    You will need to contact the sales department so a new extension key can be created for you.

    Also, if we setup data file replication between another new fresh install of DSS V7 Lite and the old DSS V6 Lite, will it work as expected?
    No, this will only work as a destination for rsync, not as a source.

    The local backup, and dynamic volumes has been removed in DSS V7.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this going to be permanent, or in future will this feature be available again. It was really convenient for backup purposes. If not, what are our other options apart from replication & quick and dirty copy?

    We recommend using a third party application like Acronis(or similar) to do backups.
    This offers more flexibility in the backup jobs.
    We also have the RALUS agent for syamntec backup.
