TapeWare 6.10 SP2D Release Notes				10-Feb-1998
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------
Known Problems
--------------
1)	Some third party networking products that replace the standard 
	Wsock32.dll may cause conflicts. These may include IP to IPX gateways 
	from Cisco and LanBridge by Virtual Motion. To work around the 
	problem, disable the product during the setup. If you need to reenable
	the networking product after setup, copy the Wsock32.dll from the 
	original Windows CD-Rom to the directory in which you installed.

	If you cannot disable the product or need the product to communicate 
	on your network, you may not be able to install from CD-Rom.
	In this case, copy the CD-Rom \WIN subdirectory to your hard disk, 
	copy the Wsock32.dll to this directory and install from there.

2)	If you receive Abends under Intranetware 4.11 with Service 
	Pack 4a, 4b or 5a installed, obtain Service Pack 5b or above. 
	This service package is more stable than the previous releases.

3)	Under Windows 95 using Microsoft NWLink IPX protocol driver, 
	communication errors can be caused by an excessive number of dropped 
	packets going in to the workstation. If you are using the Windows 
	95 machine as a device server, we recommend either using the Novell 
	Client 32 or using TCP/IP for your communications protocol.

	The problem is caused by an inability of NWLink to receive a 
	large number of packets from the network and process them quickly 
	enough within the protocol stack. Under Windows NT, this problem 
	does not occur.

----------------------------
Fixes and Enhancements - SP1
----------------------------
1)	A bug in the MS Exchange connector which caused full verification
	jobs to hang has been corrected. The Exchange databases will now
	be forced to Quick Verify mode even when Full Verify is selected
	which is how the Storage Management database and the MS SQL 
	databases are handled. These databases cannot be verified
	due to the changes occuring in the databases due to the backup
	process itself.
	
2)	All virtual objects, like the Exchange database, SQL database,
	registry and NDS objects, are now always marked as "changed" in
	the database. This allows them to be included in differential
	backup jobs.

3)	MS Cluster Server support has been added. This module can be 
	installed as an option. This option allows a "Cluster Container" 
	to be created which contains all the shared resources within 
	the cluster. For example, if the SQL service and Drive M: are
	cluster resources, drag these to the M: volume and the SQL Database
	folder to the new cluster container. Once the resource is located
	in the cluster container, whichever member of the cluster has 
	ownership of the resources will be used for the backup or restore
	operation.

4)	A problem with SFT-III loading in both IO-Engines and the MS-Engine 
	has been corrected. When the kernel was loaded into the first 
	IO-Engine, it would be registered with the database correctly. 
	However, when the second IO-Engine was loaded, it was recognized 
	as the first IO-Engine, the second would be registered and the first 
	would be deactivated.

5)	Another problem with SFT-III and IntraNetWare Service Pack 5
	has been corrected which caused a database corruption. SP 5
	now allocates an NDS handle with every NLM loaded into the 
	IO-Engine. This caused the internal module loader to timeout 
	during loading of modules. Typically, this would be displayed
	as a corrupted database along with the inability to load
	the transport driver.
	
6)	Parallel device support has been added for Shuttle parallel
	adaptor chips. These drivers will not work with Iomega, Sony
	or BackPack parallel adaptors. Howerver, the Shuttle chips
	are used in most parallel devices including those from HP. 

7)	MS Terminal Server support has been included in the base
	product.

8)	A bug in the attribute manager which caused abends to occur
	when large numbers of user space restrictions, trustees, or
	extended attributes were backed up, has been fixed. 

9)	The service manager and service modules have been completely
	updated. In prior versions, the entire administator was run
	as a service. Also, only one version of the administrator
	was allowed to be run. In this release, the small stub 
	xxWINSDR.EXE is run which is the service daemon process. The
	administrator then uses an internal communication channel to
	communicate with the service. This allows multiple copies of
	the administrator to be run simultaneously.

10)	The setup engine has been improved to allow the updating of
	the registry, program manger, links, desktop and files directly
	from the installation script. This allows much greater 
	flexibility in the setup process. It also enhanced the speed
	of the setup procedures.

11)	The maximum physical transfer sizes to/from the device and
	the maximum physical tape block size has been increased from
	32K to 256K. The largest device buffer has been increased from
	8Mb to 32Mb per device. These changes allow some speed 
	improvements on DLT devices. However, by default, the sizes
	are the same as used in previous releases. To enable the
	larger sizes, the .Ini file must be modified. Some controllers
	may or may not support the larger sizes and some tape devices
	may have problems with the larger block sizes.

12)	Several minor visual bugs have been corrected in the Windows user
	interface.

13)	If the filter of a job was reset using the default button, the
	job will no longer filter deleted entries, controllers and devices
	will be displayed. This was not normally a problem except the
	deleted entries, which caused an excessive number of file not 
	found errors in the job logs.

14)	Additional start/stop times were added to the job log to allow
	finer control of the job management. The log now lists the
	start/stop of the selection phase, the backup phase, and 
	each pass. In addition, it now lists the effective throughput 
	rate values for the entire job.

15)	It is now possible to reschedule a failed job for the current
	day. In the previous release, once a job was run for the day,
	it could not be rescheduled. Howerver, once a job is manually 
	run, it will not be run again by the scheduler unless you 
	specifically edit the schedule properties and change the 
	schedule type to daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.

16)	Added device support for the following devices:
	Exabyte Eagle TR-4 SCSI
	Exabyte Eagle TR-4 IDE/ATAPI
	HP Colorado 5Gb IDE/ATAPI
	HP Colorado 5Gb Parallel
	HP Colorado 8Gb SCSI
	HP Colorado 8Gb IDE/ATAPI
	HP Colorado 8Gb Parallel
	Indigita iDT-2500
	Indigita iDT-2700
	Seagate STT-20000A SCSI
	Seagate STT-20000A IDE/ATAPI
	Tecmar NS-20

17)	Added loader support for the following loaders:
	ATL P1000
	Exabyte 18D
	Exabyte EXB-218
	Exabyte EXB-220
	Exabyte EXB-480
	Qualstar TLS-2xxx
	Qualstar TLS-4xxx
	Seagate AIT-LDR

18)	A new option has been added to the restore options tab which allows
	you to restore files which are in use during the restore operation.
	This is supported only on Windows 95/98 and Windows NT systems and
	will restore files to the temporary directory. Once the restore
	operation is completed, you must reboot the system in order to
	replace the files that were in use.

19)	The alert manager has been updated and now displays the date and
	time of the alert.

-----------------------------
Fixes and Enhancements - SP2A
-----------------------------
1)	A speed problem with SP1 causing slow backups and restores has
	been corrected.

2)	A bug in the filters where, when moving an object, it would either
	corrupt the display or provided no folders has been corrected.

3)	The xxTrace.Txt files is no longer removed after each bootup.

4)	The default user to login is now saved in the .Ini file every time
	a successful login occurs. On the first login, the ADMIN user is
	given.

5)	The QIC media specifications have been moved to the xxTapeDev.Ini
	file. This allows us to change the specifications for new drives and
	media without recompiling and updating the device driver.

6)	When adding an object into the database for the first time, the
	archive attribute is forced on regardless of the setting from the
	actual object. This will force an initial differential job to include
	the object in the backup.

7)	Changed the order of attempting to find media in an autoloader 
	requested by a job. In previous versions, the loader would go directly
	to the correct slot only if the slot was marked as valid. Now, the
	loader will load the tape from the last position where the media was
	located. If the media is no longer present at this position, then
	a scan of the loaded media will occur.

8)	Changed the way the block sizes are overriden in the .Ini files. This
	makes it much simpler to expand the block size on a given device or
	for the whole system.

9)	Corrected a problem in which selecting to log none was actually in
	some cases logging all problems.

10)	Corrected some compatability problems with NetWare 5.0, NSS and NDS.

11)	Added device support for the following devices:
	DEC TZ87
	DEC TLZ07

12)	Added loader support for the following loaders:
	ATL L500
	HP SureStore 12000
	MediaLogic SLA8
	Qualstar TLS-2218
	Qualstar TLS-2218A
	Qualstar TLS-2236
	Qualstar TLS-2436
	Qualstar TLS-2472
	Qualstar TLS-24144
	Qualstar TLS-4210
	Qualstar TLS-4210A
	Qualstar TLS-4220
	Qualstar TLS-4420
	Qualstar TLS-4440
	Qualstar TLS-4480
	Seagate AIT
	WangDAT LD-8

-----------------------------
Fixes and Enhancements - SP2B
-----------------------------
1)	A problem which caused a restore job to hang if the Child/Parent
	security options where turned off under NetWare has been corrected.

2)	A bug introduced with SP2A which causes the log of a restore job
	to not report any failures if all files failed has been corrected.

3)	Corrected a problem in the database where deleted files or directories
	without instances may be left in the database. This caused spurious
	error 616 under NetWare.
	
4)	On scanning a subdirectory before a backup, if any type of error 
	occurs, the error is ignored and the scan continues. In previous
	releases, the scan would terminate, which would then miss file
	system changes.

5)	The exclude settings have been moved to the new xxFilter.Ini file.
	This allows us to update the filters as new revisions are released.
	If you do change this file to add new permanent filters, make sure
	you save off a copy before updating as the update procedure will
	overwrite any changes you have made.
	
6)	A problem where the database files under NetWare are attempting
	to be backed up and appear in the log as failed has been corrected.
	This problem only affected database servers installed on the NetWare
	platform.

7)	On the Windows platforms, if a critical error occurred, the system
	would display a dialog box and wait for user input instead of failing
	the operation.

8)	Added device support for the following devices:
	Tandberg TR-4

9)	Added loader support for the following loaders:
	Exabyte EX-17

-----------------------------
Fixes and Enhancements - SP2C
-----------------------------
1)	Problems with Windows NT 3.51 have been corrected.

2)	Removed window header shading under Windows 98.

3)	Made some minor revisions for Unix/Linux compatability to the
	make procedures and to the internal kernel support modules.

4)	Added device support for the following devices:
	Tandberg SLR-6

-----------------------------
Fixes and Enhancements - SP2D
-----------------------------
1)	A collision with a NetWare 5.0 public symbol has been corrected. This
	was mostly seen when the NSS administrator was being used.

2)	A possible data loss when using a predefined rotation scheme has
	been corrected. This data loss may occur when using the minimal
	number of tapes and is due to incremental backups. The defaults for
	all simple rotation schemes have now been changed to use differential.
	This eliminates the possibility of data loss due to overwriting tapes
	too early.

3)	A possible problem in the Windows service manager has been corrected.
	This problem could occur if the service was stopped and a pending
	operation was being performed.

4)	Corrected a problem with updating scanned objects if an object
	selected in a job is a terminal object. For example, if a file
	is selected to backup in differential mode, it would not have been
	recognized when the file changed.
                      
5)	Corrected a problem in the instructions screen where the incorrect
	tape set would be displayed if the job ended on the same day as
	it started and the tape set was a special set (ie. Monthly Set).

6)	Corrected a problem in the loader status property windows where
	the movement of the media was not displayed for the Identify and
	Rebuild operations.
	
7)	Added device support for the following devices:
	Aiwa GD-8000
	Aiwa TD-8000
	Aiwa TD-8001
	Aiwa TD-20001
	HP SureStore T20
	Sony SDT-10000
