Quest Rapid Recovery v6.1.2.115 (Formerly Dell Rapid Recovery)
Posted by Tadd Oeder, Last modified by Tami Sutcliffe on Jul 13, 2017 01:31 PM

As you may know, Quest recently released a new version of Rapid Recovery, v6.1.2.115. This updated version is a rebranding of the original Dell product over to Quest. Please see the supported application matrix at the bottom of this thread.

At eFolder, our technical team carefully reviews and tests all new releases of software before certifying them for use in our cloud. This ensures we deliver a consistently stable and fast solution. We are happy to announce full support for this version. Any new cores ordered will now come with this version installed. If a prior version is needed, please let us know.

For more info on this latest release, please see below. The latest version eFolder supports is 6.1.2.115. Please keep in mind that in order to move to this latest version, your agents must at least be on v5.4.3.106. Once the upgrade is done, the agents will need to be brought up to date to match the core version in order to take advantage of the new feature set. The schema of the repository has changed in this latest version. There is no way to go back once the upgrade is complete. Also, the target core MUST be upgraded first, then the source core after. If done in the reverse order, any agents replicating data can come over to the target as unrecognized. If this happens, the data will need to be purged and re-seeded.

How to Upgrade AppAssure 5.4 to Rapid Recovery 6.X  

Rapid Recovery 6.0.2 is now in limited support. To determine the current support phase of your product, please refer to the Rapid Recovery life cycle table.

Be sure to check out the Rapid Recovery Product Support page to find solution articles, tips and tricks, tutorials, documentation, notifications, life cycle tables, training, and a product user forum.

Important Notice: Due to Quest's recent divestiture from Dell Technologies, they are required to retire any Dell branded software from their support Portal. This means that all software downloads and technical documentation for Rapid Recovery prior to version 6.1.2 will be removed from the Support Portal after November 1, 2017. Please download any older versions now that you may need for your future use. I have confirmed with Quest that any existing KB's branded with Dell info will be replaced with Quest's information, so older KB's will be sticking around for now.
