CrashPlan For Business Version 3.3

Applies to:
  • CrashPlan PROe

Overview

This release of CrashPlan PROe includes support for network proxies and the newest Mac OS (Mountain Lion; 10.8). Version 3.3 also provides the ability to directly view API documentation; gives more granular control per destination over file exclusions; and dramatically improves roles and permissions management (links to the documentation provide additional details). This release also includes numerous improvements, performance enhancements and bug fixes, including fixes related to real-time stats reporting.

Important information for Mac OS X 10.4 Users: Support for Mac OS X 10.4 is nearing its end of life. Please visit our user forums for full details and schedule.

Enhancements

  • Export all of your users to a CSV for easy importing into other applications.
  • Create custom themes - Supply your own CSS to customize, or even re-brand the console with color schemes and logos.
  • Complete REST API provides access to your backup data for reports and/or integration with our business systems - Use your browser to display API documentation.
  • Proxy server support - Support for network environments that require network traffic to route through a proxy server.
  • Manage roles and assign permissions - Changes to the Roles and Permission page make it easier to create, assign and edit roles. You can see whether or not a role is assigned and to whom it has been assigned. There are now additional permissions for accessing the REST API and the admin console.
  • Control licensing by managing the number of mobile devices accessing PROe - You can now restrict the number of mobile devices users can have to access PROe files.
  • By default, the admin console times out after a period of inactivity, so you don't have to worry about unauthorized access if you walk away from the console without first logging out. There is also an option to override this setting at the server level.
  • Cloud exclusions allow you to determine which files can be backed up to the cloud and which files can be backed up only to local folders.
  • Admin Exclusions, which determine exclusion rules for files on all destinations, has been renamed to Global Exclusions.

Fixes

  • Security updates to address SSL errors.
  • Fixed problem that prevented inviting LDAP users. Errors in the Invite User template have also been corrected.
  • Fixed rare issue that prevented people from saving a config change in cases where they had an invalid value elsewhere within the admin console.
  • When using a balance command, the command will stay open if the balancer cannot complete a move due to size limits (i.e. the archive won't fit). If the move can be completed, the balance command will close.
  • Corrected enforcement of license limits.
  • Corrected problem in which some reports did not display information for all backup destinations.
  • Addressed issue where web restore search did not display file tree properly.
  • Corrected issue causing SYSADMIN account name not to properly sync to storage nodes.
  • Corrected how Web Restore limits are reported and checked.
  • The Adopt a Computer option now appears when you install CrashPlan on a new computer and sign in as an existing user.
  • Storage quotas on partners are now being enforced properly.
  • Corrected error in which menu bar (Mac) did not display stats properly.
  • 64-bit Solaris only - Corrected issue causing incorrect disk space being reported on very large mounts.
  • Alerts are now sent based on Last Activity date, not on Completed date, so that backup stats reflect backup activity, which is a better indication of backup status than the date that backup was completed.
