VM Explorer 7.1.3 - New HotFix Release

Updated documentation yesterday and released the patch - files available here:

https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/products/vm-server-backup/download

The zip includes the 7.1.1 installer, 7.1.3 hotfix and PDF documentation listed on the page.

New features:

This is a consolidated patch containing the below supported
platforms in addition to the 7.1.2 defects/enhancements.
1.Incremental backup of virtual machines hosted on ESX 7.0
2.TLS 1.2 for SMTP connections for E-Mail reporting
3.Support of backup/restore of Virtual Machines hosted on
Hyper-V 2019

Remarks

1. VMX 7.1.3 contains EASendMail.dll to support TLS 1.2
for email notifications. VMX does not use EASendMail20.dll
when using this hotfix.

2. With VMX 7.1.3, the below listed options that do not use
the VD service is not supported, because of an issue with
vSphere ESXi version 7.0.

a. If the selected target host is "Local Computer" or an
ESXi server, then below options are not supported


- "The target directory must not exist, it will be
created."
- "If the target directory exists, then it must be
empty."
- "If the target directory exists, archive existing
files in the target directory."
- "If the target directory exists, overwrite existing
files in the target directory."

b. For any target host other than "Local Computer" or an
ESXi server, the option "Full backup" is not supported.

If I may ask: how do I download this? I'm being redirected to the "Register for Free Trial" screen. Clicking "Sign In" seems to go to a Microfocus site. Although entitlements and support for VMX is usually handled by softwaregrp.com.

Going to "Support Login" on microfocus.com shows no less than eight(!) support portals. https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/support/login

Credentials on softwaregrp.com are a username, whereas the credentials for microfocus.com would be an email address.

Don't get me wrong, we are a Microfocus, Suse etc. customer. But now I'm a little bit lost.

The site is a bit of hot garbage 😟

I've attached just the patch and patch notes, the entire file the provide with the 7.1.1 installer makes it too large to post.

So...I've just installed my Esxi 7.0.1 (free version) and VmExplorer 7.1.3.

Whenever I configure my backup job on my iScsi NAS, I get the error message that the first 4 options are not supported and I can't select Incremental backup option because the destination is not "Local computer"!

 What can i do !!!!

Pls, help me!

@Emanuele BindellariYou really should be starting a new topic with your problems.
