DPM 2012 R2 UR7 re-released

We had an issue with DPM 2012 R2 UR7 that was released on July 28th, 2015. After installing UR7, expired recovery points on the disk were not getting cleaned up, causing an increase in DPM recovery point volume. The issue is fixed now with this re-release of UR7. Please install the update via Microsoft Update or download it via DPM 2012 R2 UR7 KB just like you install other DPM URs.

Existing customers who already installed UR7 before August 21st, 2015

New UR7 bits will not be pushed via Microsoft Update for the customers who installed UR7 before Aug 21, 2015. So they are advised to follow the below steps:

  1. Download the updated UR7 bits from DPM 2012 R2 UR7 KB article
  2. Manually install the update on the DPM Server that has older UR7 bits installed. The update will automatically update the pruneshadowcopiesDpm2010.ps1 script to fix the issue.

Note:

1. DPM version(4.2.1338.0) will remain the same with our re-release

2. Please update the Azure Backup Agent to latest version(2.0.8719.0) prior to installing DPM UR7 for cloud backups to work seamlessly.
