Low - this alert indicates a condition that should ideally be corrected, although it does not pose an immediate threat to user data, system security, or service availability.


This alert is triggered when the versions of the Code42 environment running on the master server and a storage server do not match. The identity of the affected server, and the version of the Code42 environment, is given in the alert.

Possible effects

  • Storage server and master server cannot communicate
  • Storage server and master server cannot sync
  • Users cannot backup or restore to the affected storage server
  • Users cannot sync files, plans, and events to the affected storage server

Recommended solution

To resolve this alert:

  • Upgrade the storage server if it is running an earlier version of the Code42 environment
  • Install the correct version of the Code42 environment on the storage server, if the storage server is running a later version of the Code42 environment

Acknowledge the alert

The alert will continue to appear on the Alerts Overview in the administration console until you acknowledge the alert. To acknowledge the alert, go to Alerts, select the alerts you want to acknowledge, and choose Acknowledge from the action menu.
