Major changes with server 2.2.x beta

  • Use reflinks on file systems that do not have snapshot/subvolume support (only XFS for now)
  • Run backup storage checks asynchronously from status screen
  • Allow client renames in some cases
  • Preparations for special Hyper-V client with disk images instead of volume images
  • Allow client to restore its own image backups (image restore with normal client)

Changes with server 2.2.0 beta

  • Improve space accounting if reflinking is replaced by copying
  • Alert/status fixes
  • Set json content type when returning json in web interface
  • Stop parallel hash download thread in all cases
  • Parallel file hashing fixes
  • Add Pulseway alert script (mainly as an example)
  • Improve out of space error handling
  • Log login attempts where username does not exist as failed login attempts
  • Fix settings threading issue
  • Log failed client authentications into auth log (Linux)

Upgrade process

As always: Replace the executables (via the installers) and the database of the server/client will be updated on first running it.

Place the files from the update directory into C:\Program Files\UrBackupServer\urbackup or /var/urbackup to auto-update clients. Disable Download client from update server in the server settings to prevent the server from downloading the current version.

On Linux e.g. with this update script: https://github.com/ptempier/get_urbackupclient/blob/master/updateclient.sh

Downgrade process (server)

Stop the UrBackup server, restore C:\Program Files\UrBackupServer\urbackup or /var/urbackup from a backup before upgrade and then install the previous version over the beta release.
