Deprecated versions, features and interface changes

The following will no longer be supported:

Previous Attix5 Pro versions
From V7.0.0

  • Attix5 Backup Professional V5.1 operational support ends 31 March 2013. The V5.1 Backup Client can, however, still back up to a V7.x Storage Platform.

From V7.0.2

  • As of the 1st of June 2013 all versions prior to V6.2.4 will no longer be supported and an upgrade to a supported version will be required in order to recieve product support.

Plug-ins
From V7.0.0

  • Exchange 2003 SMR
  • Exchange 2007 SIR
  • Lotus Domino
  • MS Exchange Server (Exchange is still supported via the VSS plug-in)
  • Oracle
  • SharePoint

     

    Note: These plug-ins have been removed from the Plug-in Installer and no V7.x Auto updates are available for them. Backup Clients which have deprecated plug-ins installed will only auto-update to the latest possible Backup Client and plug-in version available before plug-in deprecation. E.g. If you had an Oracle plug-in installed, your Backup Client will only update to V6.2.3.

    It is possible to manually upgrade a V6.2.3 Backup Client to V7.0.0 with the following limitations: 

    • All incompatible versions or deprecated plug-ins will not function
    • The selection for these plug-ins will be lost
    In the Backup Client, Help > About will list all incompatible plug-ins. The deprecated plug-ins must be uninstalled and incompatible plug-ins must be upgraded to the latest version using the V7.x Plug-in Installer.

  • PowerPC
  • OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
  • Windows 2000
